I was tagged many moons ago by the lovely Katrina (I seem to mention her in every blog post, but she's awesome) to do The Lipstick Tag, but I'd actually completely forgotten all about it until I was recently coming up with blog post ideas. I love doing tags as I think they're a fun and easy way to get to know a blogger a little more, and I'm going to tag Lillian, Kate and Caroline as I'd love to read their answers!
1. How many lipsticks do you own?
I actually want to know this myself! I just counted 30 in my collection, including liquid lipsticks, but excluding chubby sticks as I'd consider those more balms.
2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
I'm sure there must've been some cheap lipstick in my collection during my teens, but when I first got properly got into makeup, I was all about the nudes and I recall MAC's Creme d'Nude being my first. I don't wear it too often anymore as I've since bought nude lipsticks that suit my complexion a little bit better, but this is a classic nude that holds a special place in my collection.
3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?
Seeing as I own the most from this brand, it would definitely be MAC. From the array of colours to the variety of finishes, there's something for everyone.
4. What is your most worn lipstick?
As much as I love lipstick, to tell you the truth, I don't wear them often on an everyday basis as I just can't be bothered for work. When I go out, my most worn lipstick is MAC's Ruby Woo and when I do make more of an effort with my makeup for work, I go for something easy to wear like MAC's Ravishing, the YSL Volupté Sheer Candy in #10 or a simple nude, like The Faerie Glen and Jubilee, both by MAC.
5. What is your favourite finish?
I'd say my favourite finish is matte because they look the best, but they can require a lot of lip care maintenance. On an everyday basis, I love cremesheens and anything moisturising like the YSL Volupté Sheer Candies or Korres Lip Butters.
6. What was the last lipstick you bought?
MAC's Snob, which I technically didn't buy as I Back 2 MAC-ed for it, but I think before that, it must've been the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon.
7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
4. MAC's The Faerie Glen and Ravishing lipsticks, as well as the Korres Lip Butter in Mango and the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in #02 Apricot Shimmer.
8. What is your favourite red lip colour?
MAC's Ruby Woo. A classic blue-toned red, I don't think there's a lipstick that makes me feel more done up and confident in myself. It's got that whole '50s retro vibe going on and it's just timeless. I've never come across a red quite like this.
9. How do you store your lipsticks?
In my acrylic makeup drawers along with the rest of my makeup.
10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
I want to Back 2 MAC for Diva and I'm eager to try out lipsticks from Burberry, Tom Ford and Chanel! Girl's got expensive taste.
