The Lipstick Addict Tag!

Leave a Comment

I was tagged by Sissi from Beauty4Free2U to do the Lipstick Addict Tag back in June. I started this tag, but somehow forgot about it. Makeup hasn't been that exciting for me recently just because I haven't been wearing much at all -- just enough to keep from having to tell everyone that I'm not sick. If you wear makeup regularly, then you know what I'm talking about! At long last, I am posting this tag in an attempt to get out of my makeup rut! Even when I'm not wearing much makeup, I'm almost always wearing some kind of lip product.

1. Favorite Lip Balm/Treatment?
I will confess that lip balm isn't my favorite thing, and I rarely use it unless my lips are dealing with some serious dryness. Lately, I've been better about applying the Aquaphor Lip Repair before I go to bed. This is really nice because it isn't heavy, but it is still very moisturizing.

2. Best eye catching red?
Revlon Lacquer Balm in Provocateur is my favorite red. It's easy to use, and has a glossy finish with good lasting power. Not needing a liner makes it even better! While this may not be the most eye catching, this is my most worn red. I have a review here.

3. Best luxury and best drugstore?
My absolute favorite lipsticks from the drugstore are the Revlon Super Lustrious Lipsticks. I have quite a few of these, but my favorites are Fire & Ice and Cherries In The Snow. It was really tough for me to pick a luxury lipstick, but I decided on the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Lipsticks (review here). The formula is really fantastic. These lipsticks are moisturizing and long wearing and feel very luxurious on the lips. I have the colors Infamous and Dominant. I kept going back and forth between these and the Tom Ford lipsticks, but the formula of the Estee Lauder just feels so good on the lips.

L-R: Revlon Fire & Ice, Cherries in the Snow; Estee Lauder Infamous, Dominant

4. Best MAC lipstick?
I think MAC has some beautiful lipstick colors, but I'm not a huge fan of their lipsticks. I like them, but I don't think there's anything overly impressive about the formula. That being said, I do have several colors. My most worn color is Sweetie. I really like the light purple mauve color, and the lustre finish makes this lipstick very easy to wear.

5. Most disappointing? 
Don't hate me for saying this, but I really don't like the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks. People seem to really love this lipstick or really not like it. The formula is a little too thin a slippery on the lips for me, if that makes any sense. It doesn't stay in place. I have small lips and have to cheat my lip line a little. The Rouge Volupte lipsticks don't work very well for that at all. This was my first high end lipstick that I ever purchased, so I have worn a lot of it trying to make it work. I can get it to work over a lip liner base or over another long wearing lipstick. To me, this isn't worth the price at all.

YSL Rouge Volupte No. 1

6. Liner - yes or no?
Yes, yes, yes! If you have small lips, then lipliner can do so much for you. 

7. Best gloss?
I am loving the Color Your Smile glosses from Gerard Cosmetics. This is a gloss for those of you that don't like lip gloss. I wear gloss occasionally, but I've never been a huge fan of it. These glosses are fantastic! I have a review of these coming soon.  

Rose Hill, Sugar Mama, Butter Cream

8. Something extra?
I am a huge fan of lipstick pencils, and I'm still loving my set of High Pigment Pencils from Bite Beauty. These pencils are really easy to apply and long wearing. I have a review of the Bite pencils here.

Cranberry, Quince, Madeira, Rhubarb
This was such a fun tag! I can't believe I forgot about this one, but it was exactly what I needed right now to get some inspiration.
