I thought I'd do a little tag post today on one of my favourite subjects - lipstick! It might be a well-kept secret (or not so much according to my Insta), but I've got a little bit of a thang for a lip lacquer or two. I first saw this tag on Brittany's blog (what a babe) and thought it looked fun, so here are my answers!

1. How many lipsticks do you own?
A conservative estimate? Probably somewhere around the 10 - 15 mark. I think that's probably accurate - although I always feel like I could do with more, and I could be sitting on about 30!

2. What was the first lipstick you owned?

The first lipstick I really remember owning was a 17 browny-nude number I got when I was around 15 which, grossly, I still own, but the actual shade was probably a hot pink hand-me-down from my mum after pestering her about wanting to play with her stash.

3. What is your favourite lipstick brand?
At the moment the prize has to go to Revlon because I don't own a MAC lipstick *shock horror* but I'm positive once I try MAC I'll love it. Weirdly, I've tried a Chanel lipstick and really didn't like it! Totally dried out my lips.

4. What is your most worn lipstick?
The Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle or my Rimmel by Kate Moss Matte 107 in the autumn/winter times. I love the lip butter for a reliable everyday choice, and 107 for a bold, statement lip.

5. What is your favourite finish?
I love a matte lip, despite the pain it puts my mouth through sometimes! I'm really eager to try the NARS Matte lip pencils!

6. What was the last lipstick you bought?
The Revlon Color Stay in Runway and Revlon lip crayon in Ingenue pictured above!

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
This is disgusting, but the seven lipsticks in that Instagram picture? That is my handbag edit. I know! Dreadful. And they're all variations of a shade! I need to sort this out, sharpish.

8. What is your favourite red lip colour?
I love the Rimmel Kate Moss colour (broken record, I'm sorry! I'm very faithful!) in 111.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?

I have a little pouch in my handbag and, at the moment, I'm enjoying displaying the rest on top of my acrylic storage. I would like to get one of the proper lipstick holders for them though, or a little chintzy teacup or something fun like that!

10. Which lipsticks are you currently lusting after?
I think I can safely say that MAC Morange, Shy Girl and Patisserie are all on my list!

I hope you guys enjoyed that! I tag Adrienne, Brodie, Kelly and Jaye! And all of YOU - comment below with your tags!


  1. Thanks for tagging me in this Tami! I have seen this floating about and wanted to do it but completely forgot until now. Yay! And, we need to rectify this no-MAC lipstick nonsense sharpish... xo

    1. Agreed, you need MAC in your life.

    2. You're welcome babe, you know I wouldn't miss you out ;* You rectify your lack of lipstick tag, we'll rectify my lack of MAC... Deal? ;) T xx

  2. I can't wait till we get the new Revlon range here, they look so good! I can't wait to try! And I am definitely keen to try the Nars Matte Lip Pencils too, Matte can be a pain in the ass but...so worth it!

    I don't think my lipstick stash is quite as...extensive as yours but I can't wait to do it anyway!! :)


    1. I love how carefully you chose the word 'extensive' ;)

      Can't wait to read your answers! Race you to the Nars counter ;) T xx

  3. I totally agree with you on so many of these. Revlon have excellent lip products, I have so many of their lip butters.
    Shy Girl is on my list too and I LOVE Kate Moss 107 and matte finishes! Great tag!

    1. Thanks Jenn! You should do it on your blog too!! I'd love to read your answers :) T xx

  4. I also love Revlon lipsticks, especially the Colour Stay variation!
    We must have matching hand bag contents, because I also have about 7 lipsticks (all of a similar shade) you can never have too many right?

    1. Honestly, the Colour Stay is one of the NICEST formulas I've ever put on my lips. I was expecting it to be really drying but it's SO lovely and smooth!! Post coming soon!

      That just means we both have impeccable taste ;) I don't think the words 'too many' exist in my vocab!! T xx

  5. oh i loved this post! also the photos are your blog are so good!
