THE LIPSTICK TAG

I saw this tag on lovely BeautyAddict29's blog BeautyAddict29 and I really enjoyed reading her post, so I decided to do it too! :-)

So here are the 10 questions!

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
I never counted them and I never will, just in case the final result prompted me to question my mental wellness :-O
It is for sure a 3 digit number hahaha :-D

2. What is your most worn lipstick?
Impressive from Mac, from their Sheen Supreme range.
It is a creamy mauvy nude with medium opacity, and I consider it as the shade that best complements and enhances my lips while still looking very natural.

3. What is your first ever lipstick?
A sheer pink from L'Oreal :-)

4. What is your favourite brand of lipstick?
I have to go for Mac.
I believe this is the brand that offers the most extensive range of lipsticks, with so many different shades - some of them like Impassioned, Russian Red, Ruby Woo, Saint Germain, being so unique that they are literally iconic - in so many different finishes that it deserves the top spot.

5. What is your favourite finish?
On a daily basis I wear creamy finishes - I usually wear more make up on my eyes than my lips, so I prefer a creamy and more natural lipstick finish, regardless of the shade.
For more dramatic looks I will use a matte finish.

6. What lip product you last bought?
Last weekend I bought a bunch of lipsticks from Kiko - Velvet Mat Lipsticks and Smart lipsticks, I had been eyeing them for a while and I found them on sale (Kiko always has some products or lines going on sale from time to time) so I got them!

7. What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
Russian Red from Mac.
If it's daytime, sometimes I will choose Ruby Woo, which is a little brighter.
In case you weren't already familiar with them, I have an entire post with swatches comparing Russian Red and Ruby Woo :-) MAC RUSSIAN RED vs RUBY WOO

8. How many products you currently have in your bag, including lip balms and lipsticks.
I usually change the products I keep in my handbag, depending on what I'm wearing for the day.
But I always keep a lip balm in each bag, I need to have a lip balm with me at all times wherever I am!
Other than that, I usually have 1 or 2 lipglosses, or a lipstick and a lipgloss.
Sometimes I forget about them, and instead of changing them I keep adding more, until I will pull like 7 or 8 different lip products out of my bag, hahaha does it happen to you too girls??

9. How do you store your lipsticks?
Some are divided by brand and some are divided by shade.
They are stored in mini drawer-boxes and in plastic containers I got in Tokyo from Muji and from very popular Daiso store in Harajuku :-))

10. What lip product are you lusting after?
I would love to try Nars with their Velvet Matte Lip Pencils.
But I have already recently splurged on Nars for their Orgasm Illuminator AND Orgasm Multiple, so I will be still leaving their Lip Pencils in stand-by for now :-)

Please let me know if you have done this tag too in a blog post or a YouTube video, or answer as many questions as you like here in a comment, I will be very happy to read your answers or see your video!

Thank you for taking the time to go through all my answers, I hope you are all having a lovely day

  1. 3 digit number...????? Gosh.......!!!
    I also agree that the value of Mac lipsticks is really good..for its quality, the price is really reasonable.! As for Nars, the price of their products makes me always think twice before i buy one..! Anyway, i can't believe that you are still able to find new lipsticks to buy after all those 3 digit number of lipsticks you have bought till now....!!!! You can never get enough of lipsticks, can you..?? Thanks for the posting..! Would love to see the following pictures..!am curious to know where you keep all those..! xxx
