The Lipstick Tag

Amanda from Thai-tales tagged me to do the lipstick tag and i was thrilled to do it:) I have seen it around some of my favourite blogs and have always wanted a chance to get it done so here goes!!

How many lipsticks do you own?
I am ashamed* bows head in shame*, that's all i can say...can we all say lipstick junkie. Hmmm maybe around  70+

When  you were child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
Who didn't!!! i remember going through my moms lippies when she was at work and putting on the darker shades because thats what she loved, and impersonating her and feeling very mature.

How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?
14/15 and i remember it being a Revlon lipstick and may have been called Brick.

What is your newest lipstick?
My new Inglot babies!!! For swatches click HERE. Have yet to take these babies on a test run but will definitely be doing so soon.

Inglot 222 and 104
The most expensive lipstick I have ever bought?
Dior lippies, love them!!! Creamy, highly pigmented and just luxurious.

Rouge Dior 066 Diorama, Diorific 028 Rose Volage
And the cheapest?
Hands down Nyx, highly recommended if your a lippy junkie like myself:)

L to R: Nyx lipsticks in Pink Lyric, Tweed, Blush, Heredes, Cocoa
What's the most bizarre thing you have done with a lipstick?
Can't say i have done anything weird sorry. 

If you had to recommend a lipstick what brand would you recommend and why?
For higher end definitely MAC as they have some gorgeous colours and various formulas that would suit everyone.
Drugstore, I really have been liking the Covergirl Lip Perfection lipsticks. The shade range in Australia is a little limited but they are nonetheless lovely lipsticks.
And of coure Nyx, massive colour range and if your on a budget this brand is the way to go!

Pink or red?
Pink gal here!! Always:)

Favourite pink?
Mac Ever Hip is fast becoming my fav. I have to be honest, when i first got it, it just didn't work for me but now i just cant stop reaching for it. Please repromote it Mac gods!!!

Mac Ever Hip
Favourite red?
Ok this may be considered cheating but i think this definitely falls into the lipstick category despite it being called a gloss. The Rouge Dior Creme De Gloss in 845 definitely applies like a lipstick and is absolutely gorgeous for a dramatic red. For lip swatches click HERE

Favourite nude?
Rimmel Nude Delight,  its hard for me to find one that will not make me look like a corpse.

Favourite dark shade?
Mac Rich Reserve, don't ask me why but sometime i like to rock this rich chocolate brown lippy on nites out. It may not look scary to some but to me, a always have a pink lipstick on kinda gal, this is way outta my comfort zone.

I tag everyone who feels like doing this and in particular, I would love to have a sneak peak into these lovely ladies collections.


  1. Thanks for the tag babe, it's always great to see other people's collections! I'm pretty sure I've done this one already a few months ago, so I don't find it in my archives I will do it!


  2. Thanks Priyanka, I consider myself tagged! I'll get onto it later in the week. :)

  3. @Lilit Collection post are one of my fav post actually, will check out yours then :)

    @Vita No probs, would love to have a look at your stash:)

  4. I love Nude Delight as well! I need to wear my Ever Hip, it didn't work for me when I first got it either. Hoping it works for me now. ;]

  5. You have to get on it and join the Ever Hip bandwagon!!! I absolutely love it now :)
