The Lipstick Tag

I was tagged to do this post by the lovely Sleep and Water. I don't usually do these kinds of things but since it was all about one of my favourite beauty products, I couldn't resist!


1. How many lipsticks do you own? 

You know it's bad when you have to go and count them. I have 42 of what I would consider lipsticks which includes liquid lipsticks but not balms, butters, stains or glosses.

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?

The first ever lipstick I owned was this crazy frosted blue colour that I think was from Miss Selfridge. My friend gave it to me when I was maybe 10/11. Very Joey from Friends. The first lipstick I bought myself was probably Rimmel Heartbreaker or Revlon Really Red, I'm not sure which was first. I was a gloss girl up to that point.


3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?

Definitely Revlon for the more inexpensive lipsticks and Estée Lauder for the higher end ones.

  4. What is your most worn lipstick?

MAC Russian Red or Revlon Really Red.


5. What is your favourite finish?

I definitely tend to prefer Mattes but mostly because they last longer and are less prone to bleeding, smudging and getting all over my teeth.

6. What was the last lipstick you bought?

Surprisingly this Kiko one when I was in Paris last November.


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

Two- the Kiko lipstick above which I wore today and my Caudalie Lip Conditioner. I rarely have more than two in my bag.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?

See question 4, but more recently I've been absolutely loving my Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet.


9. How do you store your lipsticks?

At the moment I have them in a Glossybox, but I'm constantly on the look out for the perfect lipstick storage that allows me to see them all better.

10. What lipsticks are you currently lusting after?

Chanel Suspense, Guerlain Rouge G L'Extrait lip Colour in Orgueil, the new Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy lipsticks, Givenchy Rouge Interdit Voluptuous Nude and any of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks.


What are your thoughts on lipstick?

  1. Hi, Emma! You look great in any shade of lipstick but I needed to express that the first picture of you in particular is stunning - a dream! Best wishes to you and your mam in the days and weeks ahead, dear friend!

    1. Thank you so much Tom, you're too kind! I'm happy to say my mam is home from hospital, she's still on the mend but happy to be home again. Thanks for your kind words!

  2. You really can't beat a classic red lipstick IMO but I'm starting to love coral colours as we slowly but surely are moving towards Spring :)

    1. I totally agree, I love wearing coral in the Spring, can't wait til the weather gets a bit better so I don't feel strange wearing such bright shades!

  3. Beautiful pictures! Thank you for the mention as well, so glad you did this tag :) Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are definitely on my wishlist as well - along with her brushes and eyeshadow palettes (and pretty much anything from her range...).

  4. you should try the Natural collection lipsticks, they're really good and so so cheap:)

  5. have you checked Tiger shops recently? they have clear lipstick storages à la muji for 3 or 4 quid, you might find what you're looking for there :)
    you're giving me lipstick envy - need to try those revlon matte balms you posted about! x

  6. May I ask how you apply your lipstick? It looks so clean and perfect in every picture!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate every single one!
