The Lipstick Tag!

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
I own 9! I think that is quite reserved actually! I'm not very experimental when it comes to lipstick colours. My first bold lipstick was Mac's Ruby Woo and I only purchased it last year. That was the first time I branched out from the standard translucent lipglosses! This summer I definitley want to be more daring though, Mac's 'Girl About Town' is one that I really want to try. I'll have to be brave to wear pink! 

2. What was your first ever lipstick?
Goodness I don't think my first lipstick was even a recognised brand! haha. I mean I probably got one of those little makeup sets that Santa got from Claires. Oh yes, amazing. 

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?
This is a BIG toss up between Revlon and MAC. If I was to go on price then I would choose Revlon as it is obviously more affordable and Boots thinks about my purse every now and again and puts on 3 for 2 offers, haha. If I was to go on staying power then it would 100% have to be MAC, the Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede lipsticks aren't bad but MAC definitely wins this one. For pigment it is literally one or the other. I will continue buying both brands!

4. What is your most worn lipstick(s)?
Hmmm.. this is a hard one because out of 9 different options there isn't many that aren't worn! My two favourites are Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede in 'Couture' and MAC's 'Rebel'. Bluey Reds and deep purples are my favourite.

5. What is your favourite finish of lipstick?
Definitely matte. I literally went from sheer gloss to bold matte lips overnight! haha. It is so easy wearing and it stays on so well. Also, if I want a shimmer then all I have to do is apply some gloss over the top. The best of both worlds!

6. Last lipstick you bought?
The last lipstick I bought was my MAC Rebel and I just adore it. My ultimate favourite lipstick hands down.

7. How many lip products do you have in your bag?
I tend to carry two lip products with me, a lipstick and a lip balm. There's no need for me to go overboard as there is nothing worse with having a handbag like Mary Poppins! I like to top up my lipstick through the day and if my lips are feeling dry and chapped then there is nothing better than Carmex lip pot to help soften them up. I previously used Vaseline but the oily texture did nothing for my chapped lips, it was only after this that someone told me that oil based lip products aren't actually moisturising and they can't soak into your skin. From then on I always went for Carmex!

8. What is your favourite red?
Yet again, Ruby Woo is going to get a mention here! In saying that, If I owned MAC Red or Russian Red I have a feeling that I'd like them a little bit more. They are a classic red whereas as Ruby Woo is fairly bright.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?
I store my lipsticks in an acrylic organiser that I got from TK MAXX for £9.99. I love these as you can see exactly what you have (and what you need!) but cleaning them is such a bother sometimes!

10. Currently lusting after?
All the beauty blogger hyping has made me fall in love with Tom Ford and Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks! The only thing is, if I had either of the two I would NEVER wear them for fear of ruining them, haha! I mean, why oh why would you want to rub off that little 'TF' logo? haha. I have also heard many great reviews about Nars, the brand isn't easy to get your hands on where I live so someday I'l search it up and buy something online! 

11. What was your most expensive lipstick?
The most expensive lipstick that I own is Dior Addict at a whopping £24. It is a light pinkish shade that enhances my natural lip colour. What I like about it is that it is very moisturising but I have to admit the staying power isn't as great as some of the cheaper drugstore brands. I have bought this lipstick twice and I think after spending £48 I'll move on! Not that there is anything wrong with it, I just fancy a change. Illamasqua along with Tom Ford and Charlotte Tilbury have been calling my name for a while now...
