The Lipstick Tag

I know what you're going to say.. another tag post? But yes! I recently saw this tag post on the lovely Shona's blog (freshbeautyxox) and knew that I had to get involved!
 I love lipsticks, they are my weakness so this is the perfect post for me! 

How many lipsticks do you own?
Well I've just had a round-up and a count and I can't believe that I actually own....59 lipsticks!!! (and counting... as there's a few I have my eye on) That is just basic lipsticks, not even including lipglosses, lipblams etc etc - I think this is alot?! What do you guys reckon? Am I ridiculous? 

What was your first ever lipstick?
Wow.... I cannot remember! I'm nearly 24 now so the first lipstick I had was a good while ago! It was probably something that my Mum gave me, probably from Avon! I do remember buying Nivea's "Pearl & Shine"  (don't know if it's still called that!) when I was about 12 when it first came out though! 

What is your favourite brand for lipstick?
Well I LOVE Mac lipsticks - but they aren't something I buy lots of as... well... I cannot afford it! I only own about 5! The brand I use most and my favourite "drug-store" brand though is Rimmel! I have so many amazing lipsticks from them, they never dissappoint. 

What is your most worn lipstick?
My go-to lipstick has been the same for years, Rimmel's Kate Moss Lipstick in shade 20! It is my favourite for a (*classic phrase alert...*) 'pop of colour'! Whether it is for a big night out or just popping out to town I love this shade!

What is your favourite finish?
Erm... I'm not very good at this?! Lustre? Whatever Rimmel's Kate Moss lipsticks are - they are a great finish! 
My Current Favourites

What was the last lipstick you bought?
Well I've actually been on a make-up ban for a month (go me!) so it's been a good few weeks since I've bought one. But I think it was probably either Mac Rebel or Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipstick in the shade Dark Night Water-loops.

How many lip products do you currently have in your bag? (including glosses and balms)
8. I have my Collection Little Mix Perrie Lipstick, Mac's M.A.C. Red Lipstick, Sleek's Mystic Lipstick, Baby Lips in Pink Punch, Barry M's Bubblegum lipgloss, 2x Nivea Lip Butters & Rimmel's Apocalips in Across The Universe! 

What lipstick do your use to rock a red lip?
I have a few that I like to use! Mac's M.A.C. Red lipstick, Rimmel Kate Moss 107 Lipstick and Apocalips in Big Bang & Across The Universe.

How do you store your lipsticks?
I actually have  little tand which holds 24 lipsticks - this is what I keep my current favourite and most-worn in. The others are all in a draw bt I am hoping to buy some more holders soon so I can fit all of them out!

What lip products are you currently lusting after?
Next on my list to buy is another one of the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks. It is the shade Oxford Street Fuschia and it is a gorgeous baby pink! 

So there we have it the Lipstick Tag - I would love for you girls too join in so... I tag you ALL! Please let me know if you do it, I would love ot read all about your collections and favourites!
