I got a lipstick tag! Thank you to the beautiful Molly Rose at The Rose Beauty Files. If you are a lipstick lover, like me, this is a fun post to do. Plus, I get to tag 3 more lippie lovers and send the questions to them. I totally wanted to do this post last night but I didn’t have time so I just got home from work and jumped on it.
- Tag 3 bloggers to answer the same questions.
- Those 3 bloggers will tag 3 more bloggers with the same questions and rules.
- No tagging back (mentions are fine).
1. How many lipsticks do you own?
There are lipsticks tucked away everywhere in this house. I don’t think I could count them honestly and if I did, the number would change in a couple of days. They should go into a nice lipstick holder and I’ve requested my hubby make one for me. Waiting……waiting….. waiting…
He made this beautiful cherry caddy for me to carry my stuff around. I’d like a matching lippie caddy. He said “okay” but I haven’t seen him working on it.
2. What was your first ever lipstick?
I started wearing makeup in the mid 80’s and I had this horrific, bright, matte lavender lipstick. I don’t know what the brand was. Definitely drug store, maybe Revlon. One day it went missing after a friend of my sister’s complimented it. Days later, I found it stashed under some towels in a cupboard! One of my sister’s friends was planning to steal it. What a complete bitch.
3. What is your most worn lipstick?
I wore MAC Angel almost every day to work. I was in desperate mode scooping it out with a Q-tip and my husband suggested instead of getting Angel again, I change to Crème Cup. How would he even know? My guess, he heard it on Howard Stern. Well, I did and Crème Cup was perfect. A little more opaque than Angel and more pink. It’s the perfect every day nude pink for me and I wear it all the time.
4. What is your favourite brand for lipsticks?
Hmmm. I guess I would say MAC for their massive color and finish collection and decent pricing. However, NARS, Make Up For Ever, and Dior lipsticks I like equally as much. I just don’t have as many and I like the price point with MAC.
5. What is your favourite finish?
I like satiny finishes. I will occasionally go for a matte finish but then I wind up slathering gloss on top at some point. I don’t know… there’s something very voluptuous to me about a full glossy set of lips. Plus, there are some tricks to apply the gloss that make your lips look bigger and I like really full lips. Like we really need to see more of this but….. I am having my lips done this month and I’d like to get more fullness in my upper lip. If I could make this picture vanish in 10 seconds, I would have but it is a good example of what I wanted to change. I think my lips are just a bit wider so I have to be careful but I have an outstanding injector.
6. What is the last lipstick you bought?
I bought a really pretty coral from Make Up For Ever. It’s N51. It was supposed to be a soft pink coral but there’s no pink. I tried to get a photo but lighting is not great. Too bad it doesn’t look like this in reality. And what the hell? Why does my lip look crooked, it’s not when I look in the mirror. What is going on here?
7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
Usually 6-7. Crème Cup is a permanent fixture. Then I usually have something brighter in case I need to go somewhere after work. I have something else that’s just random. I usually have at least 2 glosses and my strawberry EOS.
8. What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
I own a lot of reds and I’m afraid to wear them. I’m just not used to them so I always feel like they don’t look right on me. Of all the reds I own (mainly MAC, 1 Chanel, and I think I have a few from Lancome – I would say MAC Brave Red or MAC Russian Red are the best for me. I might own every MAC red that is out there except the deep blood red tones. Those reds are not appealing on me. My skin is just too fair and I feel like I look like a corpse.
9. How do you store your lipsticks?
Where I can jam them in.
10. What lip products are you currently lusting over?
I’d like the entire NARS Audacious lipstick collection. I’d also like a more Dior lipsticks and glosses. The Dior Addict glosses are well…. addicting. Everything from Dior is addicting to me. I just need to steer clear or there could be a terrible accident on my credit card.
