Lipstick Tag – 7 Quick Questions

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
Yes! My Mom used to be an Avon representative and I used to take her samples all the time, haha!

2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?
I think I was around 14 years old, I have absolutely no idea what the colour or brand was, but I do know it would have definitely been from the drugstore.

3. Pink or red lipstick?
I like both. I think red is a very classic lipstick colour and I feel anyone can wear it providing they're using the correct shade for their skin tone. I'm a big fan of bold lips, whether it be red, bright pink or a dark vampy shade. I do feel like pink-neutrals are more "everyday" colours for most people though.

4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?
A MAC lipstick. (£13.50)

5. And the cheapest?
I'm actually unsure of the cheapest lipstick I own, simply because I rarely remember how much I paid for things, especially things I've had quite a while. I'd have to guess a Collection 2000 lipstick I got from Asda?

6. Do you use a lip brush to apply your lipstick?
I've actually never used a lip brush to apply lipstick. I recently purchased one from ELF to try out but have yet to do so!

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?
Definitely MAC. I love the vanilla smell of them, the creaminess, the endless amount of shades and the lasting power. They also have a variety of different finishes to suit everyone's tastes.

  1. OoOoh! Thanks for the tag. =) May I ask if you have any specific MAC favorite lipsticks?

  2. Anytime!

    You may, of course!

    I only have 5 (however my list to b2m is extensive) and trying to choose a favourite.. Hm. I suppose the one I wear the most is "Brave" but I absolutely love Cunning and Aristo-Cat from the Fabulous Felines collection, however due to being LE I try not to use them as much! I'd love to learn what yours are!

  3. this seems like a fun tag :-)
    my favorite lipsticks are by mac, illamasqua and i like barry m too, even though theyre kind of hit or miss.
