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...
