Crazy About Lipsticks Tag

Hello guys! How are you doing today? I am super duper excited writing this post because it is about.. LIPSTICKS! :) Anyway, here is my take on the Crazy About Lipsticks Tag.

I was actually supposed to do The Lipstick Tag from Scatterbraintures but I was able to answer all except for one question when I did "The 30 Days Of Lipstick Tag." Oh, if you are not following me on Instagram or Facebook and you haven't checked out my entries for that tag, I arranged it on an album which you can view here.

I decided to this tag instead when I saw it from Mom Gone Vain but I added the unanswered question from the other tag.

1. How many lipsticks are in your collection/ how many lipsticks do you own?
I am not sure of the exact number, but I know that I currently have 100+ lipsticks in my collection, not counting my tinted lipbalms, lip glosses and lip liners. I never realized that they are that many, so I am currently in a ban from buying lip products.

2. How old are you when you started wearing lipstick and what was the first lipstick you owned?
I started playing around with my mom's lipstick when I was 7 I think, but I first started wearing them when I was in 4th year college. I prefer using lip balms or tinted lip balms back then. The first lipstick I owned is an Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick. I don't have it anymore but I think the color was Pink Flame. The one in the photo is Off Beat Pink, which I got when I was just starting to collect makeup.

3. What are lipsticks you can't leave the house without?
Honestly, I can go out of the house without lipstick or even makeup on. When I do have full makeup on, I rarely bring my lipstick with me, I know I'm so weird. But, to answer this question, usually when I go out and I just wanted some color on my lips, I go for something comfortable and moisturizing.

4. Show a lipstick that you use to standout.
I can't choose one. :) A deep vampy color, bright red or a neon pink lipstick will surely make you stand out, it just depends on my mood or what I am wearing.

5. What was the last lipstick you bought?
The last lipstick I got is this Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick in Just Peachy, which is said to be a dupe for Lime Crime Opaque Lipstick in Babette.

6. What lipstick did you regret buying?
I love all of my lipsticks, except for this Pinkies Collection lipstick. I just bought this for the purpose of reviewing it, but this is something that I never use. The quality is just so-so, my Fashion 21 Pink Obsession Lipstick in Dream Girl performs better than this. If you want to read my review, click here.

7. What is your favorite lipstick at the moment?
My current faves are the NYX Butter Lipstick in Taffy and of course the Colour Collection Hot Kiss Lipstick in Kisses with Cream. I can't rave enough about this lipstick, if you are looking for the perfect everyday nude color, you should definitely hunt this one down.

8. What is your most expensive and inexpensive lipstick?
The most expensive lipstick I have is the MAC Prolong Wear Lipstick in Unlimited (₱1,100) and the most inexpensive is the Sophie Paris Lipsticks which at that time are sold for ₱79 but now I think it's sold for ₱89 each.

9. Can you show us a lipstick that you love?
As I mentioned earlier, I love all of my lipsticks! But I especially love my lipsticks that has semi-matte or matte finish. The lipsticks above are just some of my favorites.

10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
OMG! If I can just find or afford these lipsticks, I will get them in a heartbeat!
- Any nude lipstick from MAC, I wanted to find my perfect nude color from them.
- NARS Matte Velvet Lip Pencil in Bolero, the color is just so pretty,
- The Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Cream, which I included on My Christmas Wishlist, is something that I really want to get my hands on.
- Lime Crime Opaque Lipsticks, I have a lot of shades that I want to have! Babette, Coquette, Airborne Unicorn, Geradium, Cosmopop, and the list goes on.

And the last question is:

"Do you like, love or are addicted to lipsticks?"

I am pretty sure by now you know the answer to this. Yes, I am totally ADDICTED to lipsticks! My makeup collection is 40% lipsticks, 20% eyeshadows, 20% mascaras, 10% eyeliners and 10% face products.

I did not create this post to boast or what not, I just want to share to you guys my love for lip products, lipsticks in particular. ;) I tag anyone who wants to do this, I would love to see what your answers are!

Thank you so much for reading guys and I hope you enjoy this post. Let me know your thoughts on the comments below, and I will see you in my next post. Goodluck!
