The Lipstick Tag

This post has been on my 'to write' list for a while now, lipsticks having become one of my favourite makeup items! Rewind to a year ago and I was largely a lipstick virgin, convinced I would surely look like a clown if I attempted to rock a bold lip. Oh how, things have changed!

How many lipsticks do you own?
I own 18 lipsticks, including liquid lipsticks and lip lacquers. A rather small collection in comparison to most bloggers but I'd say it's pretty respectable for someone that has only been wearing them for the past year!

What was the first lipstick you owned?
I can't remember the exact shade or brand but I am ashamed to say that the first lipstick I ever bought was a very transparent and horrible-looking black shade. Yep. Black. I bought it for a Halloween costume and, as I'm sure you can imagine, never touched it again.

What is your favourite lipstick brand?
My favourite brand for lipstick changes almost every time I purchase a new one but, for the moment, is probably Bourjois because I am in love with Rouge Edition Velvet. I'm very much a fan of matte lip lacquers at the moment and I have found these to be the longest lasting and least drying thus far.

What is your most worn lipstick?
My most worn lipstick is definitely Valentine by Collection, being one of my oldest lipsticks. Also, who can go wrong with a classic red?

What is your favourite finish?
My favourite lipsticks, and those which I wear the most always have a matte finish. I know they're rather drying, especially for someone as prone to chapped lips as I, but I'm simply not keen on how glossy and satin lipsticks look on me.

What was the last lip product you bought?
In typical Eleanor fashion, the last lipstick I got was a burgundy one, in this case MUA lipstick in shade 3. I always have a fair few burgundy lipsticks and this one was kind of an impulse buy but at £1, who can say no?

How many lip products do you currently have in your handbag? (including balms and glosses)
None, actually! I'm proud to say I cleaned out my handbag today.

How do you store your lipsticks?
My lipsticks currently occupy a drawer in a WHSmith multi-drawer unit in which I keep all my makeup. However, my makeup collection is quickly outgrowing in so I may have to start looking for an alternative.

Which lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
In the past it has always been my aforementioned Collection lipstick in Valentine but recently I've been reaching for Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot Pepper a lot more because I don't have to dig out a lip brush to apply it.

What lip products are you currently lusting after?
Oh, where do I start? I suppose I'm most lusting after MAC lipsticks because, bad blogger that I am, I've never actually used one! Any shade will do!
