Crazy About Lipstick

(image source: weheartit)
'ello, everyone! We're going to kick the week off with a good ol' fashioned tag. I haven't done a blog post tag in a very long while so this should be fun! I was tagged by the ever so sweet Daphne from the blog Peanut Butter and Chocolate Life (does that blog name not make you crave a Reese's cup?!) to do the Crazy About Lipstick tag. This tag couldn't be more appropriate for me because lipstick was the first makeup item I ever bought and it'll probably be the last. Some people go cuckoo for blushes, I go bananas for lipsticks of every shade and color! So here we go:

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
Oh man, do I have to go count?! Okay, one second ... *gulp* 35. That's not counting any of my lipglosses (which I don't have much of) but YIKES. Although, I am a girl who likes my lipstick. Too bad I only have one pair of lips!
2. What was your first lipstick?
My first lipstick was TopShop's Rio Rio. It's a bright tomato-y red which basically shaped my obsession with bright lipsticks. I think my best friend may have even bought it for me when we were out!
3. What is your most worn lipstick?
Hands down, MAC's Venus, which makes sense since it's my MLBB (my-lips-but-better) lipstick. It came out with MAC's Heavenly Creatures collection last year. It's the only one that's being worn down to it's nubbiest. I'd be happy about that because I've never finished a lipstick but UGH, if it runs out I won't be able to buy it again D:
4. What is your favorite brand of lipstick?
MAC. You can turn this post into a drinking game with the amount of times I've said MAC. It's true though. I love the range of colors and finishes they have. I can almost always find a formula and color combo that I love and works well on me. Plus, I'm a collector (re: complete sucker) for their LE lipstick packages.
5. What is your favorite finish?
MAC's (*take a shot*) Lustre finishes. It's not a purposeful favorite- those are just the ones I gravitate towards ALL. THE. TIME. I don't like anything super glossy or super duper matte. So any finish that leaves a small sheen, is somewhat hydrating, and glides on smooth is a finish I'm a fan of!
6. What is the last lip product you bought?
I can't remember if the last lip product I bought was MAC's Creme Cup or Revlon's Juicy Papaya Lip Butter. It was one of those and the fact that I can't remember means it's been a while, which is good news for my wallet, haha!
7. How many lip products (everything) do you currently have in your handbag?
None at the moment. Are you shocked? Haha. I usually put the lipstick I'm wearing that day into my handbag along with a lip balm of some sort, but at the end of the day I always take them out and put them in their respected compartments. I don't like keeping them in my bag for some reason when I don't need them. 
8. What lip product do you use to rock a red lip?
A super-fan-dabby-dosey red lipstick? Also, lip liner. Lip liner is SUCH a necessity for me with a red lip. It makes the lipstick last longer, go on neater, and prevent it from bleeding. Also, a good lip balm before hand so everything can apply smoother.
9. How do you store your lipsticks?
I store them in this. Best possible way to store and organize lipsticks. Each one gets it's own individual compartment and it looks so noice!
10. What lip products are you currently lusting after?
ALL OF THEM? What? Too much? Haha. As I'm typing this I'm completely craving MAC's (*take a shot*) RiRi Woo lipstick. It's a gorgeous red lipstick (love those) AND it's in a super amazing LE packaging. I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeds to collect it! Aside from that, nothing has completely tickled my fancy. I've been good on my spending ban (sort of ;) ) 

I shall be tagging a few people as well to keep the lipstick craze going 'round and 'round the bloggersphere! If I didn't tag you, please don't let that stop you from going ahead and doing this tag if you wish! Thanks again to Daphne for tagging me!

  1. I love this tag, may have to do it on my blog. Lipstick is my favourite make-up product so this is right up my street, great post xox


    1. Join the club! Lipstick just holds so much power over a look sometime it's hard not to love! Thanks so much! :)

  2. I hate having lipsticks in my bag too! Always get them out at the end of the day- or at least when I have more than 2 in my bag :)
    Great post!

    1. Haha, yeah I don't know what is, but I think it just saves me time for when I put a new one in! Thanks, Sara! :)

  3. Thanks for tagging me! I've been planning to film this for a few weeks now, so I hope I can have it up soon. :D I'm obsessed with lipsticks, so I hope my video won't get too long AGAIN. Unlike you, I only have one MAC lipstick, but it is very loved. I hope I can buy her lots of siblings when I go to London. :D

    1. LOL, it's a family of MAC lipsticks <3
      I think I've been collecting MAC's lipsticks for maybe 3 years now. It's a slow process, but they're my favorite! :)
