It has been eons since I did a Tag post, partly because I haven’t been tagged for anything in a while. Sniff! 😦
Anyway, I came across this tag at The Makeup Honey—the blogger, Sian, created the tag herself—and thought it’d be fun to do.
Tag Tuesday: Lip Lovin’
1. What was the first lipstick you ever owned?
CoverGirl in Honeyplum Glow! I can’t remember if my mom let me buy it, or if she gave it to me. Or maybe I just “borrowed” it and she never said anything! I used it all through high school. JUST ONE LIPSTICK. Boggles my mind, now.
2. Which lip product has been the biggest disappointment?
Lipstick Queen’s Sinner Lipstick in Berry. Horrid. I also hate all those pastel lipcolors that end up so chalky and showing every line and bit of dry skin on the lips! I’m looking at you, CoverGirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick in Coral Cat and MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Fashion City! Another two fails I remember well were Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Blackberry and Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Flashing Lights.
3. Which lipstick is your holy grail product?
I rotate my lipsticks way too much, but at the moment, Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Fawn is my go-to everyday shade.
MAC Brave Red is my favorite everyday red, MAC Fanfare is my favorite pink, and Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture The Mats Lipstick in Grenat Satisfaction is my favorite vampy. In terms of being literal holy grails (i.e., I’m searching for them)…I’m forever looking for dupes of NARS Spanish Red and Clinique Black Lily lipsticks.
4. Roughly how many lipsticks do you own?
5. If you could only ever have 3 lip products for the rest of your life, which 3 would they be and why?
Instead of just repeating my answers from question 3, I’ll go with three faves that I don’t think I’ve really mentioned before: Clinique Different Lipstick in Angel Red, MAC Brick-O-La, and Yves Rocher Couleurs Nature Grand Rouge Lipstick in Hazy Pink.
6. Matte or glossy?
Cream, really. Somewhere in between. I don’t like the look of ultra-matte lips, and glossy isn’t an everyday thing for me.
7. Which is the most expensive lipstick you own?
Guerlain Rouge G in Gracia (which I gave away to my mom—that makes up for me snitching that CoverGirl! LOL.), which retails for CA$55. I paid about CA$46. Since I technically don’t own it anymore, I’ll say the Kevyn Aucoin The Expert Lip Color in Bloodroses Noir that I just got during the last Sephora VIB sale. It’s CA$46 and I paid about $36.
8. What is the cheapest lippie in your collection?
Ooh, I have some that are very cheap, probably a Wet n Wild, Essence, or NYC is the cheapest. Here’s the most recent cheapie I got for CA$1.69 (reg. $1.99), Essence Lipstick in Look at Me!:
9. What is your favourite non lipstick lip product?
MAC Tinted Lipglass. I don’t have many, since I’m not a big gloss person, but love the ones I have. I don’t mind the tackiness at all, except when this happens:
10. What non traditional lip colour would you love to see come into fashion?
I’m not the type to wear blue or green lipstick, so I’ll go with purple.
