The Lipstick Tag


I was recently tagged by Ana Celine and Lena to take part in this tag so thank you very much ladies. I have a feeling I will enjoy this one quite a bit.

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
When I first saw this question after originally being tagged I must admit I had no idea how many lipsticks I currently own. I began the quest of tracking them all down from various bags etc and have found myself at a total of 25. I don't think that is too bad as I've seen some rather large numbers floating around here, although I'm sure my number will increase quicker than it will decrease. I did include lip crayons in this as to me they're a lipstick.

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
I have no idea what my first real lipstick was therefore I'm going to put in here a lip balm. The first one that I can properly recall was one by Nivea, the soft rose lip balm. I adored that product as it gave a beautiful nice pink sheen to the lips, I have another one floating around my house somewhere. As for my first real lipstick it was probably something passed down to me from my mom that she no longer used, most likely something from Revlon.

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?
I have two favourites here, one from a high end brand which has to be NARS and the other from the much more affordable brand of Revlon.

4. What is your most worn lipstick?
My most worn lipstick would have to be from Revlon with that being the Kissable Balm Stain in Honey. No kidding I reach for this nine times out of ten as it is just a perfect shade to me that works well at all times throughout the year.

5. What is your favourite finish?
My ideal finish is typical of a MAC Lustre lipstick; I like the smooth creamy texture that isn't too bold on the lips. I also like textures that don't feel too wet on the lips, as well as this I do prefer them to be quite sheer too as a bold lip is something I'm not always too confident about pulling off. I'm also partial to a matte finish as long as my lips are in a good condition as I'm really put off by lipsticks that seep into dry areas.

6. What was the last lipstick you bought? 
The last lipstick I purchased would have to be one of five from the NARS Promiscuous Lip Pencil Coffret, read my review here. I had never tried NARS Lip Pencils up until that point so I was extremely excited to purchase that.

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag? 
Currently there are none now because I just removed them from my bag in order to do a head count. On a normal day however when I'm not filling out beauty tags I normally have one lipstick of some sort along with about three or four lip balms for some odd reason. My current lipstick of choice is the Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous along with the Balance Me Shine On Lip Salve, Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch and Blistex Medplus.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?
Having tried very few red lipsticks I can only go with one here with that being NARS Cruella. 

9. How do you store your lipsticks?
Currently my lipsticks are stored in an empty Ferrero Rocher plastic container that sits on top of my Muji storage. It's not bad but because there are no separate sections per lipstick they do tend to fall over a lot which is rather annoying.

10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?

I think the lipstick I would like most to own would have to be a Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Sheer Candy Lipstick in Succulent Pomegranate. Lovelorn from MAC also springs to mind as well as the Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks in Rapture and Rush.
