Lipstick Tag

I saw this Lipstick Tag on Foxy Aries Beauty Blog the other day and thought it'd be fun to do!  I sure love lipstick!

See?  I really do haha!

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
I don't think so.  I don't really remember using her lipsticks but I definitely remember her painting my nails.

2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?
Umm... I don't remember haha.  I do recall loving the color "Mocha Freeze" from Mary Kay when I was a junior in highschool but then I lost it so that stunk.

3. Pink or red lipstick?
Haha anyone who has been following my blog for a little bit (ahem Jess) knows the answer to this question!  Absolutely hands down pink!  I'm not a fan of the red!

4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?
MAC.  $14.50.  That's a lot of money for me to spend on a lipstick but I LOVE the ones I have (I have 4).  They are by far my favorite lipsticks in my collection.

5. And the cheapest?
I think NYX.  They were less than $2 apiece.

6. What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?
Just the other day I used it as blush but for the most part I just use it for when it's meant for.  I don't even think I've ever written anything in lipstick.  Haha what can I say?  I follow the rules.

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?
There are 2.  MAC because I love the way they feel on my lips and their pigmentation is great and the Covergirl Lip Perfection lipsticks (at least Fairytale) because of the pigmentation, price, and staying power.  

So I tag anyone who wants to do this!  I like learning stuff about people so I think everyone should do it!

And I'll add in a quick FOTD (which means face of the day for anyone who doesn't know what that means) from yesterday.
I did this and started taking pictures and then when I was looking at them I noticed they looked funny.  Can you tell what I was missing?
Yeah, dum dum me forgot to put on MASCARA!!!  How could I forget mascara???  
No worries, I fixed it (but got some in my bangs haha)!

I used Inglot shadows (of course)
AMC 71 on my lid 
379M in my crease
392 M above that
352 M to help blend
393 P for the highlight
I really wanted to play around with different tones of purple so that's why I did a warm purple blended into a cool purple back into a warm purple.  I really liked this.  It was sooo vibrant in person!  And I packed that AMC shadow on and for a while the sparkles stayed but throughout the day they went away. 
On my lips:
MAC "Myth"
NYX Megashine lipgloss "Beige"

I hope you all have a great weekend!  And do the lipstick tag!  Thanks, FoxyAries, for that!


  1. I'm gonna do the lipstick tag! I love the purple smokey eye! I really like that you used several purples. I've taken pictures and have forgotten to apply my mascara or lipstick lol...

  2. This is fun! I'm gonna do the tag too! I don't think I've ever forgotten to put on mascara but thats because I wear false lashes just about everytime I do my makeup! hahaha! I love this purple look, the colors work very well together!

  3. Here you can see how much of a difference mascara can make. LOL. Nice look and great post

  4. I think I might do the lipstick tag. It looks like fun.

  5. Covergirl Fairytale I will have to check out! Love the look!!!
