I was tagged by Carina to do this lipstick tag a couple of weeks ago and I was kind of excited about it because I don’t remember the last time I was actually tagged to fill up something… possibly during Multiply days? Hehe.
It was also interesting to answer these questions because lipsticks aren’t really my favourite part of makeup–meaning I would much rather spend my time working on my skin and eye makeup. I tend not to stray from my comfort zone of browny pinks and deeper plummy reds because when I do, I never use those shades anyway. I do still love a good lip product thpugh and I definitely own more than any one person needs, but still considerably less than other beauty bloggers out there. Anyway, here are my answers!
1. How many lipsticks do you own?
40, give or take a few!
2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
Paul and Joe lipstick N in #15. This isn’t the exact one I had ages ago because I finished it all up, but I bought a second one because of the sentimental value. It’s a muted coral shade that I never even use anymore. Love the packaging though!
3. What is your favorite lipstick brand?
MAC and Revlon. But if Rimmel lippies were available locally, I would probably say Rimmel!
5. What is your favorite finish?
From MAC, I always seem to like the Cremesheen and Amplified formulas, which both yield a creamy finish with a slight sheen.I like matte finishes for bold colours, and I’m not so much into sheer, glossy formulas. Frosts are the worst. Ick.
6. What was the last lipstick you bought?
MAC Shanghai Spice! It’s a tad lighter than Revlon Pink Truffle so it’s perfect for pairing with a heavier eye.
7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
Five. One lip balm, three lipsticks, and one lip gloss!
8. What is your favorite red lip color?
MAC Heartless (Amplified) from the Venemous Villains collection a couple of years back. It’s not a dark red (which I usually prefer) but there’s something about this shade that brings my face to life. I’m really, really hoping that MAC brings this back in another LE collection or makes it permanent. A close second fave would have to be the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in #09.
9. How do you store your lipsticks?
The bulk of my collection fills up two drawers of the clear Muji organizers that everyone seems to have. My faves and new acquisitions sit in a standing lipstick organizer atop my vanity.
10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
Bobbi Brown Heather Pink, any Burberry lipstick (the packaging and embossing on the bullet…drool), and Tom Ford Black Orchid, Indian Rose, and Wild Ginger.
So now it’s your turn to make like MySpace, Friendster, and Multiply have come back to life! I tag everyone who reads this and please do link me to your post in the comments section once you’ve answered it! :)
