For my purposes, I don’t use lipstick exclusively, so “lipstick” here will mean general lip products (but not including clear balms. Cause that’s another story)
How many lipsticks do you own?
Way too many for a gal who doesn’t use lipsticks as much as she should -__- For sure under 100, but over 50. But that includes glosses, tints…hmmm…maybe it is over a 100…oh wow…
What was your first ever lipstick?
I was about grade 5 or 6, and I got this black lipstick from Wet n Wild, for the Halloween party at school. We were forced to come with a costume, so Mom and I rushed to Pharma Plus so I could buy a Witches hat. I paired it with a black dress that I had. Then when I got to school, a girl I knew said it was too plain, so she said I could buy her lipstick from her. I paid a dollar lol. Then there was a Bonnebell Mocha tint balm that my friend gave me…that I dropped on to the tracks at St George Subway station. That was a sad day.
What is your favourite brand for lipstick?
Hmm…this one is hard. I would have to narrow it down to Innisfree, and Revlon. Since my budget doesn’t really allow me to buy expensive ones frequently…but if I did, it would include the YSL, Shiseido (I get them when I can at the sale in Markham) or Guerlain (Mom loves them). But I also do love my drugstore ones a lot, like Marcelle and Annabelle, as the formula is just right for me.
What is your most worn lipstick?
Benefit Lady’s Choice (I think its DC’ed now but still have one in backup. I hoarded it), Revlon Kissable Balm Stains in Crush, Revlon Berry Couture, Vasanti Sweden, and I am trying to wear the YSL one a lot more too…while trying to save it at the same time lol
What is your favourite finish?
Cream..tint? As long as it isn’t a glittery mess, I’ll wear it.
How many lipsticks do you currently have in your handbag? (Including balms and glosses)
I got two balms, Revlon Raspberry Pie, YSL Volupte Sheer Candy #4, and Stila Pomegranate Crush Stain. Not too bad :)
How do you store your lipsticks?
In a Fererro Roche container, for the ones I don’t use as often. I have this 24 slot container I bought from BIC for the ones I do use more regularly. Then I have a container from Dollarama (love these) that I store off season ones.

What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
Vasanti USA, or Cover Girl Seduce. I like darker reds, and yet I like these even though they aren’t as dark as I like them normally. USA is a little dry at times, but still very pretty.
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
I’m not allowed to lust after more products! Haha…but really, I don’t. I think because I have so many, and it has finally registered, I don’t really have lemmings. If I had to say, then it would be the new products that Joe Fresh came out with in the spring. However they aren’t expensive, so it isn’t like I can’t pick them u right now.
