The Lipstick Tag!

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.

The Rules:

  1. Tag 3 bloggers to answer the same questions.
  2. Those 3 bloggers will tag 3 more bloggers with the same questions and rules.
  3. No tagging back (mentions are fine).

The Questions:

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.

  1. Ooooh I look forward to seeing if you post the lip result! Before and after would be awesome. I love stuff like that. Number 9 is wonderful 😛

  2. Alright, but, what are some of those deep blood red MAC shades you’re too afraid to get? >_> I’m considering changing my no-MAC policy and a unique lipstick might do it.

    Anyway, loved this post. =D Lipsticks are grand – have you thought about getting those plastic lipstick holders with a placement for each individual lipstick? Or just getting a cheap plastic 3/5 drawer deal and stashing them all in there?

    1. I’ve seen the plastics ones but I wanted my hubby to make one to match my little caddy! Anything too vampy, I can’t do. Like…Heroine, Diva, Sin, Chili, Fresh Moroccan. Those MAC colors make me look like I should be stepping into a Halloween outfit. My skin is too light or something. It’s just not good with my coloring. A true red or orangey red I can wear, people say it looks good, but I don’t think it looks good on me.

      1. Ahh, I see. And I don’t blame you, there are some shades we don’t like just because we don’t like the way they look on us. I’m the same way with bubblegum pinks. I love vampy reds, though, and was looking for a good shade by MAC, so I figured I’d ask lol.

        1. A good red by MAC. Oh there’s a lot! Have you seen the Rhianna Viva Glam? A red with gold shimmer? OMG! I think Russian Red is really great because it seems to look good on everyone. Well, except me. It also doesn’t make your teeth look yellow. You know how some reds can do that? This one won’t. Blue undertones.

          1. I’ve unfortunately seen both of those and have good dupes for them. :'( Thank you very much though! I almost got Dubonnet awhile ago, as it’s a perfect red, but I’ve got a dupe of that, too. D’oh!

    1. I have to be careful not to overdo it. It’s like.. “ok, a little more”. “A little more” “A little more”. “Oh shit, that’s too much”. Fotunately, there is a product to dissolve the filler if someone over injects! LOL. I just love the big lips. I see people on Instagram get insulted all the time and I sit there and think 1) OMG, did that person really have to say that 2) OMG, I think her lips look great. LOL
