How many lipsticks do you own?
I currently have 86 lipsticks. 86! That is only lipstick, it doesn't count all the other lip balms that I own as well. I think there might be something wrong with me...
What was your first ever lipstick?
I am not sure. I remember that I had a red lipstick when I used to do highland dancing and we used to get dressed up for performances when I was six or seven (red lipstick, pink blush, green eyeshadow. I thought I was the bees knees), but I can't remember if that was for me, or if it was mums and I borrowed it. I do remember buying my first Australis lipstick, around the same age. I also distinctly remember a bright pink Maybelline Wetslicks lipstick that I used to wear all the time. Oh, memories!
What is your favourite brand for lipstick?
It has to be MAC. There is not a longer lasting red than MAC Ruby Woo or Russian Red. That being said, my close second is the Kit Cosmetics lipsticks. They are just wonderful.
What is your most worn lipstick?
MAC Russian Red. Or Korres Mango Butter Lipstick in Peach. Both are empty to about the same level in the tube. My most worn colour is definitely red (but if you have been reading for a little while you probably know that)!
What is your favourite finish?
Matte. Matte lipsticks last longer, which is a big deal for me. Followed closely by a creme finish though, I think. Never a frost or a pearl.
What was the last lip product that you bought?
Grown Alchemist Watermelon and Vanilla Lip Balm when I was down in Adelaide, because it was cold, dry and windy down there and Paw Paw Ointment was just not cutting it!
How many lip products do you currently have in your handbag?
5. Lucas Paw Paw Ointment, Grown Alchemist Lip Balm, Korres Mango Butter Lipsticks in Peach and Coral, and a Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm (which I don't think I have ever actually used).
How do you store your lipsticks?
I keep my lipsticks standing up in little clear plastic lipstick holders. My room is currently quite dark so I keep them on display, but when I move back to Brisbane they will be back in the wardrobe to protect them from light.
What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
Ummm.... depends on what I am feeling, where I am going... Usually MAC Russian Red, Ruby Woo or Lady Danger, or possibly Kit Cosmetics Heart Starter or Cherry Picker, Dior Favori Red.... considering that 33 of the lipsticks that I own are reds, I have a lot of choice. Red is my favourite lipstick colour, nothing better!I always apply straight from the bullet and I rarely worry about a lip liner underneath. I used to use a lip brush and all that marlarky, but I have gotten lazy and I prefer just to reapply nowadays.
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
I have no idea! I have always wanted NARS Heat Wave, so I think that might be next on the list! or maybe one of the Smashbox Mega Tint Long Wear Lip Colours.
