When I saw that Eating Lipstick had taken part in the lipstick tag, I knew I had to do it! Whilst I don’t love make up entirely, I do love my lipstick and it’s something I get most excited for when MAC announces new collections! I wasn’t tagged to take part in this tag, but she did say that she would tag anyone who feels like taking part and it doesn’t hurt to join in now, does it?
So without further ado, let’s get on with the tag.
1. How many lipsticks do you own?
Including lip gloss, tints and liners I own in total about 30-35, but I don’t use quite a lot of some things anymore.
2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
I remember on a holiday when I was little my Mom bought me my first lipstick and I still own it to this day. It’s by (name) and is a gorgeous hot pink shade and although it’s probably not safe to use anymore (it’s nearly 20 years old…) I’ll keep it until the day I die. My Mom bought me this after I was mooching at the counter they were on, wiping all the lipstick shades on the back of my hand to look at the pretty colours and as I was a girly girl at that age, I of course adored the hot pink shade the most, so she bought it for me. It’s just something I will keep close to me forever as she didn’t have to buy me the lipstick, but she did and I remember my little six-year-old self applying it (badly!) and loving how pretty I looked, just like my Mom. 🙂
3. What is your favorite lipstick brand?
Definitely MAC, most of my lipsticks are by MAC and they’re a real treat when I buy one, although I doubt I will be buying any MAC lipsticks for a while now.
4.What is your most worn lipstick?
Probably MAC’s Rebel (review here) as it’s my favourite one out of them all! It was my first MAC lipstick and I know I’ll keep buying it as it’s a staple shade for me, as I love my dark shades for autumn and winter but these shades can also be worn during the spring and summer in the evenings, or hell even in the daytime if you’re as brave as I can be. 😛
5. What is your favorite finish?
I like a nice creamy lipstick so that my lips feel nice and nourished as well as the lipsticks shade having a strong pigmentation, a bit of a gloss can be nice too. I’m not a huge fan of matte lipsticks, but this being said most of my MAC lipsticks are satin finishes, which is near enough to a matte… I dunno. 😛
6.What was the last lipstick you bought?
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Privée Lipstick in Barely Peach By Julianne Moore. I said to myself for ages I wouldn’t buy it, but I caved in! You can read the review for it here. 🙂
7.How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
I keep three lip balms in there and whatever lipstick I decide to wear on that day will also be kept in my bag too. The reason for keeping three lip balms in there is because I have Palmer’s Cocoa Butter for when my lips are really in need of some moisture, Chapstick in Apple as I just love the taste and smell of it and Carmex in Strawberry as I’m trying to use it up, it’s a good one to use over lipsticks mind.
8.What is your favorite red lip color?
Probably my Revlon Candy Apple lipstick or my newest addition of MUA’s Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless (review here). It’s a gorgeous red and I just adore it so much! But I haven’t been wearing it much at the moment as I’m suffering with really dry lips.
9.How do you store your lipsticks?
I keep them in my little stack of drawers. I also keep some in a make up bag in my drawer but those tend to be ones I’m not using much at the moment, but use once every couple of months or so.
10. Which lipstick are you currently lusting after?
It’s not a lipstick as such, but still a lip product! I really want NYX Butter Gloss in Cherry Pie. It’s a gorgeous red shade and all I have heard about the butter glosses is how amazing they are!
So that was the lipstick tag! I rather enjoyed doing it, even though it took over a few mornings before work to get it completed. 😛
I tag EVERYONE to take part in this tag, but especially my friend Amy over at Von Dork who loves lipstick just as much as I do.

Until next time, take care all.
