Good morning! I’ve been tagged to do this half a million times, but somehow this always ended up on the back burner. I think there was something intimidating about knowing that even though I regularly get rid of old products, I somehow managed to buy over 20 lip products in the past year! *Note: I’ve been really into lip glosses, stains and other not really lipstick products this year and I thought this post would be very boring if I didn’t include them. Okay, enough blabbering. To the lipsticks!
How many lipsticks do you own?
Including lip tars, lip glosses and stains, I own 30 something, which is really not as bad as I thought. Only 15 are traditional bullet lipsticks.
What was your first ever lipstick?
I’m not sure! I vaguely remember being 9 years old and being very girly. My mom bought me one of those cheap, less than $1 lipsticks that was at the front of the CVS counter to humor me. Obviously, I wasn’t wearing makeup out of the house at that young age, but it was fun to play dress up with it. I remember it was a bright, fire engine red.
What is your favorite brand for lipstick?
Again, I don’t know! This year, I’ve made more of a commitment to both save money and be cruelty-free. This means that my old favorite, YSL, is off the table and I’ve yet to find one I like as much.
What is your most worn lipstick?
This is a tie between Revlon’s Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade (not cruelty-free, but I wasn’t aware of that at the time I bought it) and OCC’s lip tar in Hush (okay, not a traditional lipstick). If we’re including other lip products, I was very big on Nyx Butter gloss in Merengue. A lot of people find this color to be a little milky on them, but being fair and cool toned, I find it super flattering and not too light at all.
What is your favorite finish?
I love a satin or matte finish. Frosts don’t do it for me!
What was the last lip product that you bought?
Nyx butter gloss in Creme Brulee.
What lipsticks do you currently have in your handbag?
None! I’ve been using long last formulas the past two weeks so I don’t feel a need to bring any with me for touchups.
How do you store your lipsticks?
I have a plastic container that I bought from Target to hold them. Nothing fancy!
What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
Oh boy, this is so bad, but another one I don’t know. It was a no name brand I had never heard of and now the label has worn off 😦
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
More OCC lip tars because they are fabulous. Other than that, finding a cruelty-free lipstick that measures up to my much loved YSL. Any recommendations?
