The Lipstick Tag

I have seen this Tag flying around for ages and whilst cleaning up my makeup case I thought the time had come for me to finally get involved. 

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
I was slightly embarrassed to discover I had twenty two (not including lipgloss or lipstains etc) , especially since I know that I've definitely lost two. It could be worse, I haven't breached fifty yet, when I do (yes it's a case of when not if) then I'll start to re-evaluate my choices.
2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
The first lipstick I owned (that I can remember) was this absolutely awful cheap red lipstick that I brought for £1.99 from Bodycare. Despite the quality being less than great, the colour was actually really nice and started my full blown love affair with red lips.

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?
I only own two Mac lipsticks but I really love the quality and how it feels to own them. There is quite a hype around them and while I'm never usually one to get drawn into hypes, I feel Mac is more than worthy. If not Mac, I'd say Loreal lipsticks are my close second favourite brand. 

4. What is your most worn lipstick?
My most worn lipstick is easily the Loreal Collection Privee lipstick in Cheryl's shade. It's such a gorgeous pink that you can wear it everyday or for a night out with dark smokey eyes. I absolutely adore it. My lovely friend surprised me with it for my birthday (thank you Laura!) and I haven't looked back since.
5. What is your favourite finish?
I tend to think that bright lip colours can look too much with a high shine finish so I opt for matte for the really vibrant lip shades. Alhough a creamy, silky finish in natural lip colours looks good too.
6. What was the last lipstick you bought?
It was Rimmel Moisture Renew in Vintage Pink which was pink/plum sort of shade. I did like it but it didn't suit me so I traded it with one of my friends for her MAC Vegas Volt as it was a shade she didn't really like.
7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
I currently have three, my Kate Moss nude in shade 3, My Loreal Colour riche Nudes in Eva and in Cheryl. Nudes are a good on the go colour as you're never at risk of applying too much and you can get away with not using a mirror if you're absolutely desperate.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?
I am such a worshiper of red lips that I have so many but it has to be my MAC Russian Red that my lovely boyfriend brought me (thank you Stephen) as it is the perfect bright red lip. I also love a lipstick my sister brought me which comes shaped like red lips, I have no idea what the brand is but I absolutely adore it! If you recognize it please let me know, I neeed to repurchase this.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?
I currently own a beauty box which I had brought for me a few Christmas' ago. However, I'm actually having to think about makeup storage now as it is full to the brim and beginning to overfill. If there's anything you recommend please let me know as I am at a loss for what to opt for!
10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
Unsurprisingly it's MAC. There's several colours I want but top on my lust list is Angel, Naked Bud, See Sheer and Brave. I've also been eying up the Lime Crime lipsticks I keep seeing everywhere, gladly welcome your opinions on them!

I've really enjoyed this tag (don't I always) and tag everyone that wants to do it, leave me your links if you have, I love to have a read!


  1. I much prefer matte colours too. This post has reminded me to get a nude lipstick from L'Oreal, thanks :) This is so bad but I've never tried a mac lipstick, need to get on to that as well.

    1. Oh I only tried one last Christmas, don't worry you have a lifetime of loosing your money to Mac haha. Really do, they're so nice, although Maybelline is doing 3 nice nude shades too x

  2. I'm hopelessly devoted to mac matte lipsticks- as other brands tend to look really awkward with my skin tone. Love this tag :)
    p.s. i've nominated you for the liebster award over on xo

    1. They are just amazing, and thank you so much I have already done it but I'll still have a gander at your post x
