Recently I was tagged to do the Lipstick Love by the lovely Chelle who blogs over at Makeup Your Mind! I thought it would be something really fun to do and thank you so much Chelle for tagging me! Let’s jump right into the tag!
How many lipsticks do you own?
I only started getting into lipsticks not too long ago. I was very much a lip gloss person but I finally started delving into the world of lipsticks and now I love them. I have lipsticks, glosses and other assorted lip products scattered around my house, but from the lipsticks I could find (easily) I have 72. I’m scared to know how many I have laying around that I wasn’t able to count, haha!
What was your first ever lipstick?
I’m not sure if this was my first ever lipstick but this is the one that comes to mind when I started getting really into them. I believe it was Airy Fairy by Rimmel. I had saw it on Dulce Candy’s Youtube channel and I thought it was such a pretty colour. It was a pinky nude (surprise, surprise!).
What is your favourite brand of lipstick?
My favourite brand of lipstick I’d have to say is MAC. I love how they have so many different finishes, formulas and that huge selection of colours to die for. I’ve never purchased a lipstick from MAC that I didn’t love.
What is your most worn lipstick?
I’d have to go with Creme Cup. It was the first lipstick I ever purchased from MAC and it’s a gorgeous light pink shade that goes with pretty much any makeup look. It’s a cremesheen finish so it’s very creamy and feels like heaven on the lips.
What is your favourite finish?
I have always been one for very opaque, creamy finishes. I have quite dry lips so I like to have a lipstick that will give some hydration while still packing a punch in terms of colour. A good example of this would be Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencils. They are amazing!
How many lipsticks do you currently have in your handbag? (including balms and glosses)
I have 7 lip products in my handbag at the moment. Starting off with balms I have the Burt’s Bees Natural Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom and the Body Shop Honeymania Lip Balm. For glosses I have two NYX Butter Glosses in Eclair and Apple Strudle and a NYX Mega Shine Gloss in Beige. For lipsticks I have my YSL Sheer Candy in #12 and the NYX Round Lipstick in Fig. Honestly, I usually have more because the bottom of my bag is usually covered in an assortment of different glosses and lipsticks but I had done a clean out recently.
How do you store your lipsticks?
Right now I have them in these cute teal containers that I picked up from Target. I currently have some lipsticks holders on their way to me so I am really happy that I will be able to have some on display. It makes it much easier to see what shades you have!
What lipsticks do you use to rock a red lip?
I don’t rock a red lip often, but when I am in a need of a pick me up or a boost of confidence they are great. For my perfect red lip I use Makeup Geek’s Ravishing. It’s a deep red that is just oh so beautiful. It’s matte and can tend to be a bit drying so I always apply some lip balm before hand.
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
I am currently lusting after more Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencils and some OCC Lip Tars, YSL Rouge Pur Couture and Bobbi Brown Rich lipsticks.
Have a great week lovelies!
