The Lipstick Tag

I was tagged by Zoe from Zoe Blogs Beauty (thank you!!) and I absolutely loved her post, so I definitely had to do it myself. I've been really enjoying lippies lately.

1. How many lipsticks do you own?

If we exclude lip crayons/stains etc and just count proper lipsticks...about 26. Not too bad but certainly too many for the average girl.

2. What was the first lipstick you owned? was a sky blue lipstick that someone gave me when I was 5 years old. But that doesn't count, right? My first real lipstick was when I was about 18, it was Rimmel's Lasting Finish in Birthday Suit. I really like this colour and I lost it somehow so I might repurchase it one day!

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?

I can't pick just one, so I'll pick two. MAC because the packaging is so classy and elegant, and also because they have sooo many colours in different finishes, theres something for everyone. My fave drugstore brand would be Rimmel - excellent quality at a better price point.

4. What is your most worn lipstick?

I'll show you.

MAC 'High Tea'
Maybelline Mineral Power Lipstick in 'Healthy Rose'

The MAC lipstick is my most used recently, whereas the Maybelline one is the most used overall. You can see that its down to a little nub! This has been discontinued for years but theres still lots available on Ebay

5. What is your favourite finish?

Matte if I want colour/impact. Otherwise, I really like MAC's Amplified Creme formulas. 

6. What was the last lipstick you bought? 

Ramblin' Rose by...MAC!

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

Not many.

Revlon Lip Butter in 'Berry Smoothie'
Nivea Essential Care Lipbalm
Carmex Lip Balm

These guys live in the front pocket of the bag I take to work. I usually wear the lip butter to work and then end up using the lip balms later in the day when my mood slowly declines.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?

I don't know, to be honest! Savvy by DB has used to have a gorgeous red shade in their matte collection which I really like. Otherwise, I really like Arbonne's lipstick in Jam. It's not an in your face bold red. It's just a comfortable red.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?

I'd show you, but I'm currently undergoing some changes to my bedroom and makeup storage. Just today I bought a new little shelf thing with drawers, except the drawers are made of little baskets! It's super cute, and I've dedicated one drawer to cheeks, the second to eyeshadows/palettes, and the rest of my makeup is sitting on a separate piece of furniture. Currently, I have one lipstick holder (holds 24) but I am ordering another one to fill with glosses etc. I will show you when everything is all finished up. 

10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?

I had to think about this one. I would love a Tom Ford lippy, they look beautiful. Actually, all Tom Ford makeup does. But it's expensive so it'll forever be a distant luxury. 

Please do the tag if you're interested! Let me know if you do so I can read your post :)

  5. Thanks for tagging me! I also only got my first real lippie at age 18!! I look forward to doing this post, I'll just have to wait till Im back in Melbourne with my full lippie collection (not that I have that many!).

    1. You're welcome Sarah :) looking forward to your version!

  6. Wow girl you are so restrained in the lip products in your bag! I have a ridiculous amount! Really enjoyed your post, Lou xo

    1. Haha I think its because I have a few different bags that I use so they don't accumulate. Thanks for reading, you should do the tag too :D

  7. Aww, thanks! Man, some of these questions are really going to take me back - I don't know if I can remember half of this stuff!
