The Lipstick Tag!

A couple of weeks ago I was tagged by the beautiful Sophie from A Hint Of Sparkle to do the lipstick tag. I had a lot of fun reading Sophie's answers and looking at the pretty pictures of her impressive collection so I'm excited to be sitting down to have a good ol' natter about some of my favourites.

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
Around 25, give or take a few that might currently be lurking in handbags or around the house. I haven't counted tinted balms, liquid lipsticks or gloss stains because I'm not sure if they really count. That seems like rather a lot, I think maybe it's time to finally throw out the ones that are getting a bit old.

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
Oh gosh, I'm not sure. I thought it could have been one of the Natural Collection lipsticks but I actually think it might have been one from The Body Shop because that's where my Mum took me to pick out my first few bits of make up. Although I'm pretty sure I just got a mascara and some powder the first time, I think I remember going back to pick out a really light pink blush and lipstick to match not long after. I don't own the tube anymore because back then I was a 'buy it, use it all up and then buy another one' kind of girl. Sometimes I wish I was still a little more like that, but I think I'd miss having options! 

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?
Overall I think Revlon is a winner for me because they have so many different options. They have their regular line of lipsticks with such a huge variety of colours and then they have their Lip Butters, which are lovely and the Balm Stains, which I also really like. I do have to give an honourable mention to Topshop here too though because their colours are always stunning! 

4. What is your most worn lipstick?
I'm not sure if this really counts, but I'm counting it because it's in a lipstick tube and it's the Revlon Lip Butter in Cupcake. I think this is my third or fourth tube of this and I like it because it applies really smoothly and it's the perfect light pink that adds a touch of brightness and colour to my face without being over the top. 

5. What is your favourite finish?
I go through real phases with the kind of finish I like. At the moment though I like really creamy formulations that aren't too heavily pigmented and don't feel too heavy on my lips. 
6. What was the last lipstick you bought?
Another tube of the Natural Collection Moisture Shine in Pink Mallow. A really easy to wear pink shade that I like to keep in my handbag.

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
Okay, I just went to have a little dig around in the bag I'm currently using and shamefully I found...six lip products. Oops! I have one of the L'Oreal Stain Splashes in Marilyn, a Lime Crime lipstick in Great Pink Planet*, a Clarins Lip Perfector, Lanolips 101 Ointment*, a Carmex tinted balm in pink* and an ELF tinted balm in Rose*.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?
I don't think anything will ever beat Revlon Cherries in the Snow for me, it's just perfect. 

9. How do you store your lipsticks?
Most of them are all mixed in with my glosses in my acrylic storage drawers but I have some of my favourites in a little acrylic lipstick holder that I keep on top of the drawers. 

10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
For the first time in a really long time I'm not really lusting over any, oh, no wait, I think I just lied. I would absolutely love one of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks because, well, who doesn't want a little bit of Chanel in their lives?! And the YSL Glossy Stains look stunning, but I don't think they really count as a lipstick and they're pretty pricey so I'm not sure I'd ever buy one for myself...

I tag you! 
Leave a link in the comments if you've done this tag, I'd love to read your answers!

Love, Jennie
xoxo

  3. Wow that is an awesome collection of lipsticks! :D I only have about 10 lipsticks and I've only just realized that they are pretty much the same shade which is annoying, I think I should be a bit more creative. ^_^

  4. I've only got one YSL glossy stain at the moment, but I've worn it every day and one of my resolutions is to get at least 2 more shades from the new collection :o). Xx

  5. Revlon is a real winner for me too, and I quite like the Sleek lipsticks I've tried! I seem to prefer slightly sheer colours lately, so I may go and have a look at the Revlon lip butters and see if I can find a new favourite! I also love the balm tints, so basically I just love everything aha! xxx

    1. Hehe Revlon make some really lovely products. I think you'd like the lip butters, they're really comfortable to wear. I've only got 1 sleek lipstick and it's insanely bright so I've never worn it. I will definitely be giving it a try this year though! xo

  9. I love my Chanel shine lipsticks, they go on so well and last for hours! Very interested in the collection lipstick, such a lovely colour, where did you get your lipstick holder? Its so cute! Would be lovely to actually display my lipsticks like that!

  10. I think I need to do this tag! I wouldn't be short on options for answers :p Revlon Cherries in the Snow is a great red, though I find the formula a tad drying and super staining. Cupcake is one of the very few Revlon Lip Butters I actually don't have, lol! I can picture it being very flattering with your skin tone :)

    1. It does stain a lot, I think that's part of why I love it because I'm so lazy haha! xo

  11. I love this tag but I don't think I have may lipsticks to actually do this. I might do it in the future when my collection grows but I did love your answers to these.

  14. this is probably the "toughest" tag i've seen - i don't even want to attempt counting how many lip products i have...! i recently re-organized my lip products and was slightly shocked at how many i actually own *embarrassed face*!! loved your answers and picks - i have been planning to pick up a few new shades of the revlon lip butters, they're one of my most worn lipsticks too :)

  17. Haha wow! I think I only have about 4 lipsticks that I barely use. I love how it can change up your look so easily but its just a hassle for me to constantly reapply. I bought a lip primer from UD recently so maybe that'll change...?

  20. Great tag, I'll definitely do it! I wouldn't recommend the Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks all that much! I have one in evasion and although it is gorgeous it only lasts an hour or two and then my lips are left drier than when I began!

  24. That is such a neat collection! I love the lipstick holder — perfect for the shades that you use most often. I'm awful — I'm pretty sure that I have roughly 60 lipsticks! I just can't help myself, and I always buy them as a pick-me-up when I'm having a rough day.

  29. I am an antidote to this post - the anti-lipstick girl - I only have one! And I haven't used it in years! I'm more of a lip gloss girl. This post actually makes me feel guilty about that. I think I may need to branch out...

  32. 6 lip products in your bag!? Impressive! I probably only have 3 lippies, waaaah. I need to work on sorting out my lips this year, I get so self-concious because they're so small and never really know what to do with them. I do love tinted lip balm!
