tag: crazy about lipstick
A little while back, I was tagged by the wonderful Kallie from But First, Coffee! in the Crazy About Lipstick tag. Since I can't resist a fun tag, I thought I would give this one a whirl! It is (obviously) all about lipstick. So, here goes!
1. How many lipsticks do you own?
Oh, this is a tricky one. I would say...at least 25. At least. I've tried to curb my lipstick buying addiction recently, though! Most definitely, I have a good variety of pink, red, coral, and nude shades. What can I say...I like to have options.
2. What was your first lipstick?
Honestly, I don't remember! I'm sure that it was something like a super frosty pink, knowing my taste when I was younger. My preferences have certainly changed since then.
3. What is your most worn lipstick?
Either Buttercup by Maybelline, which is a really warm nude shade, or Berry Rich by Revlon, which is the perfect berry shade for me. I adore it!
4. What is your favorite brand of lipstick?
YSL. I don't have a lot of lipsticks from them, but I absolutely adore the rich, creamy texture. Plus, the colour pigmentation is absolutely beautiful! Definitely worth the splurge.
5. What is your favorite finish?
I'm not super into glosses, but I don't necessarily want a matte finish all of the time either. I would say that I like something with a bit of shine to it.
6. What is the last lip product you bought?
It was one of the gloss stains by Maybelline in a really pretty dark brown. I already had a few of these in my collection because I just love the stain element as well as the subtle amount of shine it gives. I chose the colour because it was so different to anything else I had in my collection.
7. How many lip products (everything) do you currently have in your handbag?
Just two! I don't tend to carry a ton of makeup around with me when I go out. So, I just keep the lipstick I'm wearing and a chapstick. Nothing super crazy!
8. What lip product do you use to rock a red lip?
My Revlon lip liner and my red lipstick of choice. This is usually either a pretty ruby shade from Tarina Tarantino or a bright red one from Rimmel.
9. How do you store your lipsticks?
I have one of those clear lipstick holders and then I also have a white plastic bin for any lipsticks that are longer or simply don't fit inside the holder.
10. What lip products are you currently lusting after?
There are a few from YSL and Chanel that I am dreaming of. Gorgeous berry shades....yes please!
Those are my answers to the Crazy About Lipstick tag...now it's your turn! I encourage you all to do this tag for yourself. It was a lot of fun!
