The Lipstick Tag

I was tagged by Nani to do this tag. I'm excited when I see I was tagged in something, I like answering questions because it feels like I'm actually communicating and connecting to you guys. Whether it's interesting or not is a different story. But, nonetheless it's entertaining and fun.

After getting all my lipsticks together, I find that Nani and I have very similar ones. You can take a look at her post here.

That's all I have. I do have a lot of pinks, just because they look better on me. Red makes me look fat for some reason and nudes just seem to wash me out. I'll be sure to post an extended entry about all the colors in a later date with swatches and all.

On to the tag and questionnaire.

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipstick?
Yea, like once or twice but they were red lipsticks. I looked so bad with them but they were so fun to play with when I was younger.

2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?
This is totally testing my memory and I'm really bad at remembering anything this specific. I'm guessing 17 or 18, the years when I really started to get into this makeup craze.

3. Pink or red lipsticks?
Definitely pink, red looks too harsh on me and did I mention it makes me look fat?

4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?
MAC lipsticks. I never splurge on a lipstick because I know I won't wear it often and there's no point in buying a 20something dollar lipstick if I can get a similar one for less than $10. Yup, I'm a cheapo sometimes.

5. And the cheapest?
Does free count? My aunt get these Estee Lauder and Lancome ones for free with her purchases and she just gives them to me. But if you want to know cheap cheap ones, it would be the NYX's lipstick that were like $2something on CherryCulture.

6. What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?
When I'm desperate I use it as a blush and there was once where I tried to taste it. Hahahaa omg I can't believe I said that. Actually I just licked it, not literally take a chunk and ate it.

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?
I would recommend the NYX brand just because I love how pigmented and cheap they are. They do have a lot of colors and are also quite moisturizing.

There you have it. I thought it lipstick tag required me to post crazy photos of lipsticks but thank god. I'm not a huge lipstick person, I rarely wear it but I like to collect and have it. I like pretty colors and what kind of girl doesn't. Wearing it would be on a totally different level. Maybe I just don't like to reapply it every 3-5 hours when it wears off.

For this tag, I tag all that wants to do it. It's a short fun tag. If you do it, please let me know. I would love to read it!
