The Lipstick Tag

How many lipsticks do you own?
Not including lip balms I own 25 Lipsticks which is actually a lot more than I thought, god knows how many lip products I own over all. I'm too scared to count!

What was your first ever lipstick?
I didn't really start wearing Lipsticks until a couple of years ago, I was always more of a lip balm person. I think my first ever lipstick was macaroon by Topshop. Which when I got it home looked absolutely awful on me so I've never worn it haha!

What is your favourite brand for lipstick?
My favourite high end brand is probably MAC, because of the amount of choice you have with colours and also the vast choice of different finises. Yeah they are a bit pricey at £15 but in my opinion they're worth every penny. My favourite drug store brand is Collection 2000 at the moment. The gothic collection is amazing and I also really love Jade's Lipstick from the Little Mix collection. The colour pay off on the Collection lipsticks are as good as that of rimmel or maybelline, but they're probably more than half the price.

What is your most worn lipstick?
I'd say my most worn lipstick is MAC Silly because I wore it almost every day in the summer but now it's getting a bit colder I'm reaching for Mua's Matte Lipstick in Scarlett Siren or Collection Gothic #3.

What is your favourite finish?
Matte is definitely my favourite finish because I have a habit of rubbing my lips together so if I wear something really creamy it always ends up spread all over my fance (hence why I always used to wear lip balms).

What was the last lipstick you bought?
It was Jade's Lipstick from the Collection Little Mix range and I love it! It's sort of a pinky nude, perfect for daytime!

How many lip products do you currently have in your bag? (including glosses and balms)
I currently only have 1 lipbalm in my bag, Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss (which smells amazing).

What lipstick do your use to rock a red lip?
I don't often wear a red lip but when I do I tend to go for Mua Matte Lipstick In Scarlett Siren because it suits my very pale skin tone and stays put all day.

How do you store your lipsticks?
I store them in an acrylic lipstick holder that I bought from eBay for around £3.
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
The next thing on my list is Benefits Benetint because I've never actually tried a lip stain so I'm intrigued as to whether they'd work for me.

Winter Wishlist

Autumn/Winter is my favourite time of the year! I love chunky cardis, big stompy boots and wrapping up in 20 layers. This year I'm absolutely loving most of the trends; Tartan, boyfriend jackets and of course cut out boots. So my wishlist is never ending! Anyway, I've managed to narrow it down to my 5 favourite things.

Winter Wishlist

Shoes / Bag / Coat / Dress / Hat

1. Chelsea Boot £25 -
 I wasn't actually looking for any boots for this winter as I already have my Dr Martens and 2 pairs of black boots but when I came across these on I knew I had to have them! They would look soooo nice with almost everything I own!

2. New Look Boyfriend Coat £39.99 - 
 This is a gorgeous dupe for the Topshop/Zara Boyfriend coats, I absolutely LOVE the colour of it!

3. Primark Pork Pie Hat £8 -
These were in Topshop a lot last year and I nearly bought one for around £20, but I'm so glad I didn't! I think these look so lovely for a night out just with a dress and a pair of  boots.

4. eBay Bag £21.99 -
 I actually just bought a similar one to this today, I'll have to feature it in a OOTD post at some point. I really needed a bag big enough for all of my uni books but I also wanted it to look smart enough to wear it out if I wanted to. Like everyone else I LOVE the bags in Zara but just can't justify spending £50+ on one.

5. Primark Floral Dress £8 -
 I'm pretty sure 99% of people own one of these so I suppose I don't need to say much about it. I'm going to go into primark Liverpool and pick it up at some point, it's just lovely!

What's on your winter wish list?
Thanks for reading!
