Makeup Edit: The Lipstick Tag #1

I think this tag sums me up pretty well, what do you think? Lipsticks are always one beauty product that I can convince myself I need, no matter how many I have in my collection! As you will see I have quite a few coral/ red shades.. what can I say. I'm Claire I like red, end of!

Mac Lipstick Collcetion
How many lipsticks do you own?
Honestly... let me think, um I may have quite a few maybe around 50, give or take. Though shamefully the majority are Mac, yes, lets not think about the money right now.

What was the first lipstick you owned?
Excluding Carmex, wow, I definitely have to think about that (we are talking 13-14 years ago) I think it was one from Seventeen no idea what it was called.

What's you're favourite lipstick brand?
Sorry to be unoriginal but it's Mac, you just can't fault the quality and the range of finishes and shades is superb!

What's your most worn lipstick?
My most worn Mac lipstick would probably be Hue, as for my most worn drugstore pick, that would be Rimmel 107.

How do you store your lipsticks?
The majority reside in my Ikea Alex, just stood up, not the most practical way as they do tend to fall over when I remove a shade, but it does the job.

What is your favourite finish?
If my lips are in a good condition I love a bold matte lip, they stay on all day and look very chic, though if my lips are dry and pretty gross, I tend to prefer a glaze finish, if no lipstick at all.

What was the last lipstick you bought?
My last lip purchases weren't necessarily lipsticks but they still deserve an honorable mention. I added NYX Butter Glosses to my collection and they are absolute amazing. I recently did a whole post about them so if you would like to hear more here's the (link).

How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?
At the moment not many, as I've just had a clear out, but my last count was 3, not counting lip balm.

What is your favourite red lip colour?
This one is tough as I love a good red lip but I would have to go for the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso, this stuff is seriously hard to remove!

What lipstick is next on your wishlist?
Hum, let me think.. Mac Sweet & Sour looks nice as does Mac Flamingo.

NYX Butter Glosses
Added question | What are your current favourites?
The Laura Mercier Lip Glaces and NYX Butter Glosses, I'm definitely having a gloss moment. They give a nice shine without the stickiness, I would recommend these if you want to get into glosses. Once you buy one, you can't stop!

What lip products are currently on your must have list?
