The Lipstick Tag

Saturday, July 15, 2017


Most of my friends know me as a lipstick junkie, well I am not gonna rebut that title, just for records, I do love my eyeshadows equally as well.

1. How many lipsticks do you own?

Well, it might come as a shock to many, but I do own 50+ lipsticks (drops my head and walks away). This includes all my tube lipsticks, liquid lipsticks, lipbalms, etc. The number might be high for an average makeup consumer, but well, makeup hoarder in me doesn't seem to learn from rehab treatments. No shame!


2. What was the first lipstick you owned?

A Revlon lipstick (Don't remember the name and it is discontinued). Comes in a golden packaging. I purchased my first lipstick in 2010 after I got my first job. I went to Lifestyle and asked the SA in the first counter to show me a beautiful lipstick. She sold me the costliest lipstick Revlon had at that time (INR 760, back then). Being a first-time makeup shopper, I nodded my head in agreement when the SA told me that the dark-brown glittery lipstick looked perfect for my skin tone. I had a rude shock when I went to pay and realized I was poorer by INR 760!

3. What is your favorite lipstick brand?

Makeup For Ever and MAC for conventional lipsticks and Dose of Colors for liquid lipsticks.


4. What is your most worn lipstick?

MAC Creme in Your Coffee which sadly passed away a few months back!


5. What is your favorite finish?

Comfort + Matte = 💖

6. What was the last lipstick you bought?

Dose Of Colors liquid lipsticks in Los Anjealous and Berry Me 2.


7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

Being an extra, currently, I have three lipsticks (MUFE C211, Colourpop Safari, Kat Von D Lolita 2) and Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Lolita in my office bag.

8. What is your favorite red lip color?

The mommy maroon-MAC Dubonnet. I find maroon to be more flattering on my tan skin. I also, love MAC Russian Red, I find that the shade lightens up my face.


9. How do you store your lipsticks?

I store my lipstick babies in clear acrylic containers. I purchased mine from Amazon.


10. Which lipstick are you currently lusting after?

Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick. I have heard so many good things about Bite Beauty lipsticks. Also, would love to try the new ABH lipsticks.

11. Favorite balm/treatment?

Maybelline Baby Lips, all day, every day. I love how easy and comfortable they are on the lips.


12. Best luxury and best drugstore lipsticks?

NARS in the luxury category as it is creamy, opaque in full swipe, and long lasting. At 32 dollars (2340 INR), they are definitely a luxury. As for the drugstore category, I feel, Maybelline has some of the best lipsticks in the market and props to the wide range of colors and finishes.


13. Best MAC lipstick?

MAC Twig or MAC Creme in Your Coffee is my jam. For NC42, finding an MLBB is quite a daunting task, and these two are perfect for pairing with a smokey eye or office look.

14. Most disappointing lipstick?

Makeup Geek liquid lipsticks. The one major thing that I look out for in liquid lipsticks is the longevity and sadly this liquid lipstick does not perform in that category. Also, I am not a fan of the consistency and feel of the lipstick on my lips. I have to reapply the lipstick every 3 hours and it wears out in a very aweful way.


15. Lipliner, yes or no?

Yes and No! I don't apply a liner underneath the lipstick but, I love wearing the liners as is with a lip balm on top. MAC has some of the best lip pencils that I know of. The shades Soar and Spice are definitely universal colors.


16. Best lipgloss?

Not a gloss-kinda person and I don't own any gloss.

That's it, folks! Do leave your answers to the tag in the comment section below.
