The Lipstick Tag

If there's one beauty product I'm really crazy about, they're lippies.
I'm always in search for the perfect one depending on my shade preference.
Lipsticks can really change your looks and mood, believe me.
I honestly carry more than 4 shades in my bag, just in case I want to change
my look or my mood. Since I'm fickle minded, my favorite lippie shade changes
every year.

Here's the Lipstick Tag that I enjoy answering, and even reading through
my fellow beauty bloggers' post. I'll be including a few pictures so that this post won't be boring and dull.

How many lipsticks do you own?
I honestly lost count. I started collecting lippies since I was in high school.
I've lost some, others were unfortunately stolen,
while others were now residing inside my cousins' purse.
Let me do a headcount by their brands.

Oh gosh, it's 64.. excluding those I've lost, and those that were stolen..

What was the first lipstick you owned?
I've had lipsticks from my mom and aunt prior to this one, but when you say "first"
then it has to be the one I bought with my own money.
It was in highschool and I really saved up my money for Maybelline
Watershine Diamonds Lipstick in Peach Flash. 
I saw it from an ad when I bought my first Cosmo mag.
Since it was too glittery I couldn't wear it for school and another one
which is Blistex Lip Tone. I loved them. Maybelline got chunks of micro glitters that I sooo love. Blistex smells like chocolate, I even remember my friend Nelly licked it.
Sadly both were phased out. :(

What's your favourite lipstick brand?

 I owned a few and it has the best consistency, texture, 
finish and pigmentation. It's long lasting and smells like
those ice cream from Cold Stone. I love it not because it's pricey.
Who will like it when something's expensive? right? I want to save and buy cheap ones
as much as possible but with its quality, Mac has taken all my moolahs.
If I couldn't afford one I look for dupes and go for Nyx and Wet n' Wild.

What's your most worn lipstick?

Mac Please Me and Mac Shy Girl. 
Both were good for an everyday natural glam look.
For a cheaper alternative with a pinky peach hue
 I go for Maybelline's Lipstick in Angel Rose.

What is your favourite finish?

Matte. I've loved glosses and shimmers when I was younger,
but then I started hating them when I was still active in my dance org, 
coz whenever my hair accidentally gets into my lips the gloss glides 
all over my cheeks. Also, a matte lippie gives off more natural looking lips.

What was the last lipstick you bought?

It's Mac Heroine. I was really itching to get that goth purple lippie
but then I have to think several times
coz my cousin was making fun of me when I was swatching it
at the back of my hand. She's like, "you won't buy it, right?" then laughs

How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
my bag at the moment: small xoxo hot to trot handbag filled with 5 lippies
from Mac, Etude House & Nyx. Yes, bag's already full.

As I've mentioned I carry 4 to 5 shades of lippie in case of emergency.
I know I sound weird.
If it's a big date or big event I carry
Mac Please Me, Mac Shy Girl, Mac Russian Red & Mac Pink Nouveau.
If it's just an ordinary day like hanging out with friends I carry lippies
mostly from Maybelline, or Revlon or Etude House or Nyx.

What is your favourite red lip colour?

Mac Russian Red. I swear its the best. I've received gazillion compliments
from it, and it's a real head turner from random strangers.

How do you store your lipsticks?

I have this small gold train case where I keep those that I rarely use,
and those most used were stored in the ice cream can from Yellow cab.
I also keep them somewhere out of my little cousin's reach.
She broke too many lippies already.

What lipstick is next on your wishlist?

Lime Crime's Geradium, a bright radioactive pink &
I heard it's a good dupe for Mac's Viva Glam Nicki plus
the packaging is gorg!

 What are your current favourites?

Mac Please Me
is my everyday gorgeous lippie.
Then I love mixing my other lippies together to create a gorgeous combination.
My current fave is the combo of my
Nyx Black Label Lipstick in India and Avon Lipstick in Island Glow.

What's your favorite lipstick packaging?

Most makeup addicts and enthusiast have to agree, 
Mac Heatherette lippies were f*cking amazing. 
Now Lime Crime produced purple versions with holographic unicorns on it
and I'm dying to get one.

Now if you happen to be as addict as me wen it comes to lippies
then I'm tagging you to do this and send me your link to your blog
so I can happily read yours!
