All About Lipsticks
I’ve been seeing this in a number of beauty blogs and was eager to do it myself even if I wasn’t specifically tagged. However, my short attention span deterred me from answering it much as I wanted to. But when Carina tagged me in her own entry, I got the push I needed to finally put it up so here I am now!
P.S. – I’ll be gone for a few days to attend a wedding in beautiful, sunny Boracay (and celebrate my birthday on the 21st there, too!) so there may or may not be new posts coming up (I’ve some drafted posts but I’ve yet to finish them so I’m not sure if they’ll go up while I’m gone!). In the meantime, I have recently updated my category pages to a much more user-friendly grid layout so do check it out if you have time. I’ll link a few here: Lipsticks, Foundation, Eyeshadow, Blushes.
1. How many lipsticks do you own?
I never got around to counting it, primarily because I’m sure I have more than I need and don’t want to feel guilty. But for the sake of this tag, I did and it’s at the 50 mark (not counting lip glosses and lip balms). I have sold and given away a few already, though. Of course, this isn’t as many as others’ huge collection but for me, I find this too much still. Which reminds me – a blog sale is in order!
2. What was the first lipstick you owned?
My first one was a hand-me-down but since I can’t remember which one that is, I’ll go with the first one I bought myself and that is Revlon In the Red, a matte red lipstick. I’ve given that away to my sister, though.
3. What is your favorite lipstick brand?
Despite the percentage of MAC lipsticks I own, it’s not my favorite brand for lipsticks. My favorite lipstick brand would have to be Dior, particularly their Rouge Dior line. It’s the most forgiving formula on my perpetually dry lips. I also like their matte formula (Diorific) as it’s not too drying, but will have to explore other shades as I wasn’t particularly thrilled with my first one.
4. What is your most worn lipstick?
5. What is your favorite finish?
Hands down, my favorite finish is MATTE. However, since I can’t sport matte finishes due to my lip condition, my lips’ real favorite finish is SATIN. I’ve swatched a few random lipsticks below which are of matte and satin finishes.
L-R: Bloom Dusty Pink, MAC Mehr, MAC Velvet Teddy, Tom Ford Sable Smoke, Viva Glam Nicki, Chanel Exaltee
6. What was the last lipstick you bought?
Good question. It’s actually been a while since I bought a new lipstick! The newest in my collection are Diorific in Diorama and Rouge Dior in Sillage but I got those around January.
7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
I don’t really plan how many lipsticks I bring for the day, I just always grab one to add to my makeup kit when I leave the house. So as I checked my makeup kit to answer this question, I found out I had more than enough to change lipsticks for a whole week. That’s why my bag felt a little heavier than usual. LOL. I had Rouge Dior in Grege (my ultimate favorite nude-pink), Tom Ford Spanish Pink, Chanel Le Baiser, NARS Carthage and three NARS Lip Pencils in Biscayne Park, Lodhi and Cruella.
8. What is your favorite red lip color?
9. How do you store your lipsticks?
I allotted one drawer in my MUJI Acrylic Case for lipsticks, but since I’ve no more space in it anymore and refuse to take out my other makeup items in the remaining drawers to make room, I resorted to using a Lancome GWP Beauty Bag from the 2012 Christmas collection to store my other lipsticks in (which I didn’t include in this post anymore).
10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
I am forever lusting over some SUQQU lipsticks! Thankfully, it’s hard to get a hold of so I don’t think I’ll be acquiring any anytime soon. Also, because of my dry lips, I find wearing lipstick to be such a task/hassle nowadays so I’m not at all itching for any at the moment. The last one I liked and almost bought though was Rouge Coco in Triomphe.
I tag a few of my favorite people to do this post:
+ Michelle of Bubbly Michelle + Sunny of Mostly Sunny + Kristen of Glambunctious + Nikki of Girl Behind Glasses + Raven of Strange & Beautiful + Ae of AnArtechoke + Tellie of Beauty by Tellie + Shayne of Queen of All You See + Tina of What Tina Loves + Juvy of Plump Cheeks
