The Lipstick Tag

While most of my makeup is quite simple and natural, I do love experimenting with different colours of lipstick.  I recently came across The Lipstick Tag on Life, Set Sail so I thought I would have a peek into my collection and give it a go.

1. How many lipsticks do you own?

Much to my surprise after counting, I own 30 lipsticks.  A good reminder that I definitely don't need a new one.  Quite a moderate collection I think, though if this was the nail polish tag, this would be a whole other story.

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?

I never properly wore lipstick until I went to uni so the first one I remember owning would be MAC Shy Girl. I loved the shade when I first got it but now when I wear it I think it’s a little too pale for my skintone.

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?

I usually go through a stage of liking one lip brand. First it was MAC, then Topshop but these days I’d say Revlon.  I was really put off MAC lipsticks when they constantly raised their prices but I'm glad to find some lovely drugstore alternatives.

4. What is your most worn lipstick?

I’d say it’s a cross between Chantecaille Lip Chic in Heirloom Rose or Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon. Both lovely shades but this year I want to wear a few more pinks, maybe some natural shades.

5. What is your favourite finish?

Definitely the sheer/lustre finish. I love being able to pull off a bold colour without feeling overdone. They're so easy to wear and really hydrating on the lips.  I used to be all about matte lipsticks but after a while they start to look a little unflattering during the day.

6. What was the last lipstick you bought?

It’s been quite a while since I bought a new lipstick but I think it might have been the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic.  It's not too bad but I definitely prefer the Lip Butters.

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

As I recently got a new bag (thanks Lisa!) there’s only 2 lip products currently in it which are the ones I mentioned in my most worn lipsticks question. Usually I’ll find around 5 different lipsticks in my bag.  I don't tend to carry around a full makeup bag with me so I'm always losing them in my bags!

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?

For a bold, classic red lip I love MAC Russian Red but for something more subtle, it has to be Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?

I keep them in my IKEA Lekman Mini Drawers which you can see in my Makeup Collection post. They look a little messy in the picture so I’m trying to make up little dividers to have them all standing to make it much neater.

10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?

I’m really intrigued by the new Revlon Colourburst Balms but I have heard mixed reviews on how good they are. Of course I'd love to own a YSL lipstick too, the packaging is beautiful!

I tag everyone who wishes to do the tag and if you end up doing it, feel free to leave a link below in the comments, I'd love to read them.

    I surprised myself with how many I had! It's a good excuse to pop into the nearest drugstore ;)

    The lip butters are lovely, you have to try them! I need to get trying more of their lip products.

  3. I see you really love Revlon!! I have one of their Just Bitten lip stain.. but i think i also like to try their lip butters after you mentioned it :)

  4. I've been loving this tag! I don't own enough lipsticks to do this tag yet but I'm sure I'll be able to soon enough. xx
