A Peek Into My Lipstick Collection

I was tagged by the lovely Kirsten Jane of Commander in Chic with this tag- to share with you some lipsticks from my collection. I decided to throw in some that I haven't showcased before, as well as the ones I am always raving about.
Maybelline Color Sensational-Coral Crush
Australis Colour Inject-Jive
MAC-Costa Chic (Frost)
Clinique High Impact-Citrus Rose
MAC-Ever Hip (Cremesheen)
Revlon Super Lustrous-Fuchsia (Pearl)
Nars Pure Matte Lipstick-Carthage
 As in the order above:
Coral Crush, Jive, Costa Chic,Citrus Rose, Ever Hip, Fuchsia, Carthage
I will point out that the swatches do not do the brightness of some of these shades justice, esp Carthage and Ever Hip. All of them are much nicer on lip, naturally ;)
1. When you were a child, did you ever use your mother's lipsticks?
Mum had this amazing ruby red shade that was cased in the most beautiful floral metallic case. I used it more as a stain than a full pout (as does my Mum) but it was my introduction into the world of beauty. I have a post coming up soon where I share my makeup memories, a picture of the lipstick will be there!

2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?

I’d say I was probably 15/16? Have no idea what it was, though. The first memorable lipstick was my baby, Coral Crush <3

3. Pink or red lipstick?

 Orange and coral! Though I do adore pinks and reds, I’d say I rock pinks more often just because they are easier and go with smoky eyes for daytime.

4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?

I buy ‘expensive’ lippies from blog sales for bargains, and got my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine from Strawberrynet for $35, so I’d say my most expensive would be my MAC collection.

5. And the cheapest?

My blog sale bargains kill it here, $1 etc for amazing shades. Otherwise, Priceline bargain bins hold some beauties.

6. What's the most bizarre thing you have done with lipstick?

Written on my mirror, I think it looks super cute (though it might look silly in my adult bathroom…) I think there is still a lipstick love heart on my bedroom mirror!

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why? 

Maybelline Colour Sensationals! Great pigmentation, can be cheap when on sale, creamy and easy to wear. Coral Crush is my all-time fave, but I’ve recommended some of the pink shades from the range to my best friendCandice (who looks amaaaazing in them!)

I would love to see more of this tag, I think a peek into a collection can be so exciting!
In particular, though, I tag:

  1. I love Maybelline lipsticks too ^^ their pinks are the bomb :D awesome collection :)

  2. How good are they! I'm silly and don't own any of the pinks, but talked my bestie into them. Will have to rectify this situation!

  3. When ever i can i swatch the maybelline lipsticks the colours are always amazing and the pigmentation. had my eye on a couple of the coral ones too, i need some for summer! :) x

  4. Aren't they great Roxanne!? You need Coral Crush in your life, it is my no.1!

  5. I love these post!!Just picked up a few of the Australis lippys including Jive...they're pretty good:)

  6. This post is making me wanna go out and buy lipstick, and I hardly ever wear it!! LOL Ohh the life of a beauty junkie...

  12. Gosh, how pretty does the NARS Carthage look? I've never noticed it before but now I'm really drawn to the colour!

  13. Yami- Isn't is crazy! Such a gorgeous shade should be permanent, I regret not buying a back up

  14. All those shades are stunning~ Especially MAC's Costa Chic~

  15. It's such a sexy colour, I'm hopefully going to have a nice lip swatch of it up soon
