Okay, I admit it, no one has actually tagged me in this, but I really wanted to do it anyway. Here goes!
1. What is your favorite balm or treatment?
I have quite an assortment of different lip balms knocking about, but at the moment I am loving the Body Shop Ginger Sparkle Lip Balm. This is much more of a Christmas/Winter balm, but I love it anyway. It smells really good, and is nice and hydrating but not too sticky. It gives my lips a nice little tingle too because of the ginger.
2. What is your favorite eye catching red?
Hands down, it has to be YSL Rouge Volupte in No 7 Red Muse. It’s an absolute classic pillar-box red and it looks sensational.
3. The best luxury and drugstore product?
My favourite luxury lipsticks are the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks. They are super creamy and amazing quality, but more to the point, the packaging is to die for.
My favourite drugstore lip products at the moment are the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers. The wands make them really easy to apply and the lacquers have great pigmentation. They stay glossy and shiny without being sticky, and the range of shades is lovely.
4. Best MAC lipstick?
I only own one but it’s amazing! It’s from the Retro Matte collection and it’s called All Fired Up. It’s a sensational cherry red colour, which is super flattering and amazing quality.
5. Most disappointing lip product?
This is going to be controversial, but I really wasn’t that impressed by the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick I tried. I found it transferred really easily, smudged, bled and generally went all over everything. Maybe I was unlucky and picked a bad shade, but it definitely put me off.
6. Lip Liner: Yes or No?
I use lip liner with any particularly bright colour, especially red, as I find it stops them from bleeding. I usually use a nude liner or an invisible liner, but I also have a red which is a pretty good match for my YSL lipstick.
7. Favourite gloss?
I only own one, that’s the No 7 High Shine Lipgloss in Whisper. It’s pretty when it’s first applied, but lipgloss just doesn’t do it for me. I really don’t wear gloss much at all because I find it only lasts 5 seconds.
8. ..Something else?!
Got to give a huge shout out to the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms. I have the shade Elusive which is a really flattering pink. They are incredibly easy to apply; you don’t even need a mirror. They are also really long lasting. I’ve got my fingers crossed for some more wearable shades, as most at the moment are quite shocking, vibrant colours.
I tag anyone who fancies having a go at this themselves!
