Lipstick Tag

nedelja, oktober 16, 2011

I've been tagged by Ulmiel from Did someone say nail polish? to do a Lipstick Tag (here is her post). I usually don't do tags, but this one looked really fun. Lipstick is my favourite make up item and I definitely prefer it over lip gloss. I think the majority of my posts here is lipstick themed, I post a lot of swatches and every single shade mentioned or pictured in this post has already been reviewed and swatched. I've also already done a Top 6 Lipsticks post.

How many lipsticks do you have?
I counted 23 proper lipsticks and 7 soft mat lip creams which I consider being a type of lipstick. The ones in the picture are those I have at home. I have E.l.f.'s Runway Pink, Nyx's Istanbul, Make Up Factory 47, Revlon's Pink Pout and Pink About it in Ljubljana (they are the ones I wear the most I guess). Honestly, I thought I had a lot more lipsticks, I'm a bit surprised actually.

When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
I did a couple of times. But the shade she owned was horrifyingly ugly, sort of an dark orange shade. I loved playing with make up, but she only had one lipstick and I think it was by Vitaskin (Krka's line of cosmetics, if it even exists now)

How old were you when you bought your first lipstick and what was it?
I think I was 12 or 13. It was by L'Oreal, I don't know the name of the shade (obviously), but it was a very natural pink shade with shimmer. Unfortunately, I lost it in the first month after purchasing it. I bought my second lipstick much later then, I think I was 15 and it was Maybelline's Sugar Plum Ice.

What is your newest lipstick?
Revlon's Pink About it (a matte coral-red shade, click for review).

The most expensive lipstick I have ever bought ...
Rouge Volupte by Yves Saint Laurent. The price is outrageously high, but the packaging is so pretty and luxurious, and the formula is so creamy. However, I don't find the shade range that interesting. Still, I do own two shades - 2 Sensual Silk and 7 Lingerie Pink (review).  

And the cheapest?
E.l.f.'s Classy (swatch). And it's not that classy. The packaging is super cheap and I'm not that keen on the formula. Get the ones from their mineral range instead.

What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?
Nothing. At least I don't remember anything like that. I'm so careful with my lipsticks and I always keep them neatly arranged. I'm boring, I know.

If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?
I'm not going to recommend just one, because there's a lot of good lipsticks. My choices are: Revlon's Matte lipsticks (which have the best matte formula ever), MAC lipsticks (because of the massive amount of shades), E.l.f.'s Mineral lipsticks and IsaDora Jelly Kiss lipsticks. Also try Soft Mat lip creams by Manhattan or Nyx. 

Pink or red lipstick?
Pink. But I also love red shades. My favourite red is Soft Mat Lip Cream in 45H by Manhattan (swatch).

Favourite pink?
Without a doubt MAC's Hue (review). I know for most it's a nude shade, but on me it's more a light peachy pink shade. I also love Creme Cup, Nyx's Istanbul and Runway Pink by E.l.f.

Favourite nude?
Gosh Darling hands down (review). If you have the chance to get it, do not hesitate to buy it. E.l.f. Natural Nymph and Mac's Myth are also good nudes.

Favourite unusual shade?
It's not my favourite, but it's unusual. It's Barry M's Touch of Magic. The intensity of the colour is based on your pH levels. On my lips it turns into a hot fuchsia pink (review).

Favourite dark shade?
Barry M's 145. It a super bright fuchsia shade (swatch).

Your biggest lipstick lemming?
I'm not really lemming a new lipstick now (shocking, I know). I do want to get Sleek's Pout Paint in Minx.
I tag everyone who is interested in doing this tag.

Thanks for reading!
