the lipstick tag

Hey guys!

Today's post will be the lipstick tag! I love tags, they are so much fun to do, and I was tagged to do this by the lovely Kirsty from Lipstick Addict! You can find her blog here, if you haven't found her already! She is also featured in my beauty blogs I love page! Definitely go check her blog out if you haven't already, its dedicated to all things lipstick and other beauty topics. And tip of the iceberg, she's also from Sydney, Australia :) 

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
Oh lord.. I don't even know. I'd say at least 70-80, not including lip glosses or crayon lipsticks. Basically, more than I'll ever need!

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
The first lipstick I ever owned myself (not stealing from my mums collection) was MAC's Lustering lipstick! It was given to me as a gift :)

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?
Thats a toughie.. I would say MAC because they just have something for everyone, and so many different formulas.. But my favourite ever lipsticks are the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks, and they are on another level amazing. So, probably YSL!

4. What is your most worn lipstick?
Maybelline's Colour Whisper in Lust for Blush. I also have a back up for when it actually does run out..

5. What is your favourite finish?
Ooooh.. Probably the lustre finishes by MAC.

6. What was the last lipstick you brought?
The last lipstick I went in store to buy was Sportsgirls Love Bite. But I also ordered the Tarte Amazonian Butter lipstick in Golden Pink last week, so I guess I also brought that last as well.

7. How many lip products do you have in your bag? (Including balms and glosses)
I have an EOS lip balm, my Nivea lip balm and I honestly carry whatever lipstick I am currently wearing for the day, plus one or two back ups for if I change my mind. My make up bag usually carries only the essential products that are on my face that day, I chop and change the products all the time.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?
The one that I last brought, Sportsgirls Love Bite! I only own that and MAC's Ruby Woo, but I love how this is a sheer, toned down berry type red.

9. How do you store you lipsticks?
Well, my favourites that I wear on a frequent basis are with my main collection on top of my drawers in a container that used to be part of a candle. Then my crayon lipsticks are in their own holder, which is a pencil holder I brought from the Reject Shop. The rest are stored in my drawers. My high end lipsticks and some MAC lipsticks are in a lipstick holder I brought from Priceline, and then the rest are sorted into two containers - one being lipstick tubes and the other glosses and liquid lipsticks :)

10. What lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
Oh wow. Um.. MAC's Russian Red and Candy Yum Yum.
All the YSL Rouge Volutpe lipsticks, but in particular #2 and #13. But really, every single YSL lippie.
Maybelline The Buffs Collection.
L'Oreal Le Lacque and Le Matte crayon lipsticks.
Revlon Matte Balm in Elusive.
So many more, too many to mention. But these are on my immediate list!

Hope you guys enjoyed this tag! Thank you so much Kirsty for tagging me! Now I tag:

    1. I would agree with you if I hadn't brought them in the US in the first place - although $55 is a hell of a lot for a lipstick, after trying the other I literally HAD to have it. Do wish they were cheaper though, they are 100% a luxury, but they are the best of the best!


  4. Oh my goodness, you remind me of myself! I have a ridiculous amount of lipsticks in my collection as well... but I still love trying new ones that come out.
    I'm from instagram btw if you remember our chat :) www.kateflowermaquillage.wordpress.com
