The Lipstick Tag

Hello my fellow Sophisticates! I hope you all had a fabulous July and are having an even better August! Today, I decided to do one of the fun tagged blog posts that is circulating around the beauty blogger community. This is called "The Lipstick Tag." I decided that I NEEDED to do this post because lipsticks (along with many other beauty items) are one of the things I collect and obsess over! In this tag I'll be showing you some of my go-to lipsticks, favorite lipstick brands, and absolute favorite lipsticks from my collection that I am ALWAYS reaching for.

So without further adue, here are my answers to "The Lipstick Tag" questions!

How many lipsticks do you own?
Oh boy…this is a tough question…if I don’t include lip lacquers, liquid lipsticks, and lip-glosses I would have 67 lipsticks (not counting the 17 lipsticks I purchased the other day on e.l.f’s website…whoops…lol)

What was your first ever lipstick?
My first ever lipstick was Wet & Wild’s 530D/ Dark Pink Frost. It’s kind of sad…I still have the original lipstick AND a new tube of the same lipstick. It’s cool to think that my first lipstick is still around to be purchased and is still only $0.98!

What is your most worn lipstick?
My most worn lipstick has to be NYX’s Butter Lipstick in the color Pops. It is SUCH a versatile color and it is such a creamy formula!

What is your favorite brand for lipstick?
I would have to say that my favorite brand for lipstick has to be NYX lipsticks. One of my favorites from their brand is their NYX Butter Lipsticks. Although these guys aren’t crazy long lasting, these are SUPER creamy and feel AMAZING on the lips!

What is your favorite finish?
My favorite finish is either a butter/cream finish or a matte finish. It just depends on how dry or chapped my lips are.

What is the last lipstick you bought?
The last lipstick I bought was e.l.f’s lipstick in Posh, which is a deep purple/mauve. I figured it would be a perfect color for fall and it was on sale today on e.l.f.’s website for only $0.50! (I bought a wholeeeee lot of lipsticks the other day on e.l.f’s website but this lipstick was the last one added to my cart.)

How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
I currently have 6 different lip products in my bag. I have 3 lipsticks, 2 chapticks/lip balms, and 1 lip-gloss in the purse that I use every day. I’m fairly positive that I have many more lip products hiding in my other bags.

What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
My #1 go-to lipstick for a bold, red lip is my Laura Geller’s creamy lipstick in Chile Red. It is soooo creamy and it has an amazing staying power! It’s the perfect blue-toned red for paler skin tones, such as my own.

How do you store your lipsticks?
I tend to store my lipsticks in acrylic lipstick holders that hold 12 lipsticks each. I have 4 of these lipstick holders and one four-compartment acrylic case with lipstick in it. I also have all of my liquid lipsticks, lip-glosses, and lip stains in an acrylic box.

(Example below)

What lip products are you currently lusting over? 
I’m currently lusting over e.l.f’s Studio Matte Lip Color! I know they aren’t a newer product, but these are absolutely amazing! They are super matte, super creamy, and aren’t drying! These are so amazing that I’ve purchased them in 8 different colors! (soon to be 9…yes, I purchased another one tonight…but, it was only $1.00)

So this concludes my lipstick tag! I hope you all enjoyed seeing exactly how much I love and obsess over lipsticks and my lipstick collection! I'm not going to nominate anyone specific to complete this tag, but I highly encourage everyone who is as obsessed with lipstick as I am to answer these questions either in the comment section below or in your own blog post! If you make your own "Lipstick Tag" post, please post the link to your post below for all to read and enjoy! I hope you all enjoyed this post and enjoy the rest of your August! x

Until next time! xx
