The Lipstick Tag

Okay, so lip products are definitely my weakness so I thought that this would be an easy post to ease me into the blogging world.

How many lipsticks do you own?
I'm not quite definite on how many I own, but i'd say around 25-30. To some people this would be seen as lots, but to others it's probably not many at all. Every time I go in the drugstore, it's just always something I end up buying, especially because of my student card which gives me 10% off in Superdrug. It just entices me to buy more, but you can never have too many to choose from right?

What was the first lipstick you owned?
I'm not quite sure, when I was younger I always had various pink glittery lipgloss' scattered all over the show. One of my first ever lipsticks which I wasn't just sneaking out of my mums make-up bag was probably a L'Oreal one. It was a really light pink colour with shimmer, it definitely didn't suit my skin tone so I just remember layering on lipgloss on top. Young Jessy thought she looked good, bless me. 

What is your most worn lipstick?
My most worn lipstick...I'm not sure I ever stick to the same one as I like to go for a different one all the time. But it's probably my MAC - Crosswires with a creemsheen finish. It's such a wearable colour with the perfect pink/coral pigment. It's not too much and goes with absolutely everything.

What is your favourite finish?

I do like a matte finish because I feel it makes you look more dressed up and as though you've made an effort and it lasts all night. However, I often go for a more mousturising lipstick because it's easier to apply and feels nicer on the lips.

What was the last lipstick you brought?

I dont know if it counts as a lipstick because of the applicator, but it was one of the Bourjois Velvet Lip colours in the shade Peach Club. I loved it at first, but found after a while it felt a weird texture on my lips. It started to feel crispy almost, but it was probably because I had it on for too long. I need to try it out again as i've only worn it once. 

How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

Do I really have to go and check? I'd like to say I only have one because i'm a really organised person who clears out their bag on a regular basis. But that just isn't the case (excuse me whilst I go and look). So it turns out I had 3 lipsticks, a cherry Carmex, a Vaseline and a Maybeline baby lips in my bag.

What is your favourite lipstick brand?
This is tough, I have only got one MAC lipstick at the moment, which I absolutely adore. There aren't many places nearby me which sell MAC, and I like to look at all the colours before I buy, instead of buying online. My other favourite brand has probably got to be Rimmel, all of the Kate Moss collection. Although i'm not too keen on the moisture renew ones, they literally get everywhere possible, I found myself getting lipstick all over my work at college. I feel like I should be mentioning L'Oreal too. This is just too much of a difficult question. 

How do you store your lipsticks?

I store them in a flowered box in my draw :)

Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
I am currently lusting after a Chanel or YSL lipstick, purely for the amazing packaging. Although, when it comes to buying one I always get drawn in to buying a new mousturiser, I do love a bit of skincare.
