the lipstick tag

So I wasn't actually tagged in this by a fellow blogger but a few people saw it floating around and asked me to do it so I decided to give it a shot. I LOVE lipstick so this should be fun.

1. How many lipsticks do you own?

I actually just spent a solid amount of time finding every one of my lipsticks and counting them up, not including the chubby stick pencils and I have 42. This is only after I cleaned out a lot of my makeup last week and gave away or threw out anything that was too old or that I never wore and cut my lipstick stash almost in half.

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?

I actually never wore lipstick until I went to university so when I finally bit the bullet and started my mild addiction it was Angel by MAC. I was looking for the perfect pink to throw on for chapter meetings and work so I drove to the nearest MAC counter an hour away to find it. To this day it is still one of my favorites.

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?

This is hard and a real toss up between Urban Decay and MAC but I will have to go with MAC because of the large selection of colors and the different formulas makes it very easy to find something that you like.

4. What is your most worn lipstick?

Can I cheat and list a few? MAC Ruby Woo, Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural in N9, and YSL Rouge Volupte Shine 5 Fushia in Excess. I also love Shame by Urban Decay but I haven't worn that much as it is summer and I'm bringing out the lights and brights.

5. What is your favourite finish?

I love a matte lip as they are always so highly pigmented and have great staying power but I do love more moisturizing finishes that aren't too heavy on the lips like YSL one mentioned above. Not a big fan of ones that are too creamy.

6. What was the last lipstick you bought?

Airy Fairy from Rimmel

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

 right now as my makeup has been boring lately. Burt's Bees mango lip balm and NARS lip gloss in Gold Digger.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?

MAC's Ruby Woo. It is a blue-toned red that looks great on everyone with a highly pigmented matte finish. It is my favorite red and the first one I will grab. If you have yet to find a red you like try this one and you will feel like you can kick ass and take on the world (or your local bar) by storm. Trust me.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?

I have an acrylic lipstick organizer for the top 12 in my current rotation and then I have little drawers for the rest.

10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?

I'm almost ready for a Back 2 MAC and I'm thinking either Diva or Pink Plaid. I also really want to try one from Burberry but I forget the name of it and I can't find the post it I wrote it down on.

Instead of tagging someone since I don't have any blog friends yet I want to hear what some of your favorite lipsticks are!
