I was looking for a new tag post to do when I saw this on Haileys blog (here). It seemed like divine intervention seeing as the topic for #JuneBBC today is lip products! This is a tag that Hailey’s friend Max created and you can find her blog here and the tag itself here.
How many lipsticks do you own?
At last count it was 64… I know not every single lipstick managed to get counted in that ‘census’ though so there are probably a few more…
What was your first ever lipstick?
I remember getting a makeup set for a present when I was about 7 and it had stackable lipsticks in it. There were about 6 bullets that fitted into each other in shades of red, pink, orange, purple and brown. I thought I was the business doing people’s makeup – little did I know it was an omen for times to come.
The first lipstick that I owned as an adult and really loved was Heatherberry from 17 (Boots) and it is still a shade I love.
What is your most worn lipstick?
My New CID cosmetics lipstick in the shade Damson or my MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Prolong.
What is your favourite brand for lipstick?
I love New CID but find it hard to get them and the shade range is limited. For a variety of colours at a reasonable price I don’t think you can beat Rimmel.
What is your favourite finish?
I love a cream finish in a lipstick. For a red I think a matte also looks fab but I am very conscious that your lips have to be in good condition for it or there is no point!
What was the last lip product you bought?
I bought the Inglot Play freedom palette from this post in May and haven’t bought any other lip stuff since that I can recall… Oh wait, no, I bought two W7 lipglosses last week. They’ll be coming up on the blog soon!
How many lip products do you currently have in your handbag? (Including balms and glosses)
I don’t wear makeup to work so in my work handbag I just have LA ROCHE-POSAY Ceralip Lipid-Replenishing Lip Cream. When I am going out at the weekend I bring at least three lip products with me: lipliner, lipstick and lipgloss that match in at least one shade but often two in case I need to dress a look up!
What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
I use MAC Cherry lipliner and MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Prolong. I have a lipgloss from Seka Cosmetics that I tend to use over it if I want to give it an extra gloss.
How do you store your lipsticks?
This was the topic I covered in my post on day 14 of #BEDM so you can read that here.
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
I would love to get my hands on some more of the Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colors. Other than that I can’t really think of any lip products that I would love to have. Maybe you have some suggestions?
I tag any of you reading this to do the tag but in particular I tag any of the #JuneBBC participants! Please let me know in the comments if you do this tag so I can have a nosey at your responses! 😉
