Lipstick TAG

I found a tag video on Youtube called the "crazy about lipstick tag" and decided to film and answer the questions myself, you can find that video here. When filling out the description, I went out to find the originator of the tag, as I always do so I can include the link and give proper credit. Well when I went to do so, I found that the original questions were from this blog, and as the tag has gone around youtube, I guess the questions have been altered. I thought I would go ahead and answer the questions I missed from the original blog post, in my own blog post :)



What was your first ever lipstick?
Funny enough, I just stumbled upon it the other day when reorganizing my collection, I had no idea I still had it! It definitely needs to be thrown away, as that purchase was probably 8+ years ago now (man, that makes me feel old). Anyway, the name has rubbed off, but all I know is it's a disgusting deep but bright magenta/hot pink/so gross on my skin tone I don't even know how to appropriately describe it colour. One of those things I bought just for the sake of owning my first item of makeup.
What is your most worn lipstick?
My "most worn" lipstick is definitely not my "all time favourite" lipstick, which is why I didn't include it in the video, as it's not that worth mentioning I don't think. Anyway, my most worn lipstick is without a doubt, Myth by MAC. I could live without it (I have a few other MAC nudes I actually prefer) and it's not my all time favourite, but I find myself using it the most for some reason haha, try to understand that girl logic ;)
What is your favourite brand for lipstick?
Revlon and MAC are always at the top of my list because of their  quality but also their finish options and colour selection, but Buxom also really impresses me.
How many lip products do you currently have in your handbag? (Including balms and glosses)
Four, which would be a pretty average number for me. I always always have a chapstick (either Blistex Lip Medex or an EOS lip balm) in my bag, then the lipstick and lipgloss combo I am wearing that particular day, along with a back-up lipstick (almost always a nude) in case I find myself getting tired of my current lip colour, which occasionally happens when I'm rocking a really bold lip. So 4 products.
What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
I rarely do reds, but when I do it is Strawberry Suede by Revlon. It's matte and creamy and perfect. If I'm doing an bold orange lip (which is more common for me) it's Sail La Vie by MAC.
How do you store your lipsticks?
I just purchased the Alex 9 drawer from IKEA for make-up storage, and my lipstick is still in the process of being organized. Right now I have a little shelf above the Alex that fits all of my Revlon lipstick (my most worn overall brand) an acrylic organizer for daily makeup on top of the unit (which fits  up to 12 lipsticks, so my MAC lipstick collection fits perfectly) and then one drawer inside the unit is dedicated to all the stragglers (along with stains, balms, glosses etc.)
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
Oh man, this answer could go on and on.  There are a few MAC shades I would love to get my hands on (specifically from collections I can no longer find) as well as a couple Korres products, but mostly I'm lusting over Too Faced La Creme Lip Colours (Juicy Melons is at the top of my list) as well as Tarte Glamazon lipsticks which I've always been obsessed with (but have never found the nerve to buy) especially in the colours Bold and Enlightened.

Thanks for this tag Maxi, it was definitely a fun one :) Lipstick addicts unite!
