I was tagged by Chester to do this tag, I've seen it on a few blogs now and I really like it so Thanks, Chester!
1. When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
Hmm... No I don't think so. I remember her having a particular affection for No 7 Highland Mist lipstick but I never wore it!
Although once when I was about 5 years old on Comic Relief 'red nose day' she did draw on my nose with red lipstick...and advised me to rub noses with other kids...they weren't so sure!
2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?
I had a Natural Collection tinted lipbalm in the colour sugarplum at the age of 10 which I insisted on wearing even though it really wasn't flattering
Then bought a Body Shop lipstick trio with some Christmas vouchers at 11. They were dark purple, baby pink and chocolate brown and they were all marbled. Niiice
I know my Mum was very unhappy about that purchase at the time!
3. Pink or red lipstick?
I love both, I suppose I wear pink or nude the most but I think red actually suits me better
4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?
Probably either a YSL Rouge Volupte or Dolce & Gabbana lipstick, both £22-23 each or something like that
5. And the cheapest?
That I still own?- ELf mineral lipstick in barely bitten is £3.50 so I guess that one, although the Sleek true colour lippies I got recently were 2 for £6 so technically were cheaper
6. What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?
Apart from the aforementioned wearing it on the nose aged 5, I can't think of anything, although the shape of my lipsticks always goes a bit weird so I must apply them in a bizarre way:
7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?
I would go for MAC as they have the biggest range of colours and textures. You can't go wrong with MAC!
I would like to tag:
Adorable on your Vanity
Make Up Savvy
and anyone else of course who wants to do it of course
I highly recommend it, this tag sent me down memory lane on my make-up journey through life!
ps: I don't know what to do about my blog template at the moment, it is a work in progress
