This is a modified version of an old youtube/blog tag. I wasn’t able to find the original creator of the tag.
How many lipsticks do you own?
I imagine it’s about 40 but it could be up to 50. I cleaned some out but have since then ordered a few more. So yeah, probably something like 40.
What was your first ever lipstick?
I imagine it was some form of Halloween or toy makeup that I decided to repurpose as regular makeup.
What is your most worn lipstick?
My good old Guerlain one in Garconne. I also have a tinted lip balm from The Face Shop that I wear on casual days.
What is your favourite brand for lipstick?
Guerlain, but Besame is coming up pretty strong. For budget options, TonyMoly and MaxFactor have somer really good ones too.
What is your favourite finish?
A happy medium. I dislike things that look artificially matte or glossy. So a rich creamy finish is usually what I go for.
What was the last lip product you bought?
Hm… I think it might have been the NYX Wicked Lippies that I picked up in Canberra, bought about 5 of them that I’d been unable to find in Brisbane.
How many lip products do you currently have in your handbag? (Including balms and glosses)
Only one, cleaned it out today and just put in the lipstick I wore today. Before that I had six.
What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
Most of my lipsticks are red, so it depends on what I’m going for. But yeah, Guerlain is my big statement one.
How do you store your lipsticks?
On my makeup table, in my bag, and in my backup drawer (for makeup I use rarely or have a backup of).
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
I’m waiting to get my orders from Colour Pop and Geek Chic Cosmetics. They include some unusual colours and I really want to try them.
What is your least favourite finish?
Extremely glossy finishes that makes it look like you rubbed chicken grease on your lips.
What are some tips you have for people when it comes to lipsticks?
Exfoliate your lips, don’t do the Jenner lip, and wear a good quality lipstick that stays in place and stays on.
What kinds of mistakes did you make with lipsticks when you were younger?
I didn’t pay attention to my skin’s undertones, that’s probably the main one. There was a while when I wore a lot of blue lipstick, I like the look but it tasted horribly.
Favourite lip care products and tips?
Exfoliate, put Papaw ointment on at night, and don’t keep using things that dry your lips out.
