Tag: Lipsticks

I was tagged by the lovely Lene for this one.

several lippies I collected over the years

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother’s lipsticks?

Yes, I think I did. But I remember having my own aswell. Took a while though, because when I was little, I was highly allergic to any kind of makeup.


2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?

I have no idea, probably pretty young, I loved playing with makeup when I had a day off, with nothing to do. I'm guessing it was from Collection 2000, I owned a lot of that brand back then, and Theatre aswell.


3. Pink or red lipstick?

Red, but unfortunately, reds are more prominent, so its easier to spot when they bleed. And -all- lipsticks bleed on my lips. I've been wearing more pink lately, but never  a real nude. I don't like those, and I'm way to pale for them anyway.


4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?

Chanel, I've got 2 now, and totally love them. Bought them with a discount/gift certificate. Around 21 euros a piece if I remember correctly.


5. And the cheapest?

2 for 79 cents at Action probably, haha.


6. What’s the most bizarre thing you have done with lipstick?

I wrote poems and sentences that meant something to me all around the mirror that was stuck inside my closet door. Dad did NOT like it, when I moved out and he had to clean that up.


7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?

I think Gosh and Catrice are pretty good lipsticks for the price you pay. They also have a wide range of colours, not just nudes, pinks and red. But also, black, lilac, berry and such.


  1. Inderdaad een leuke tag! Ik ga toch maar eens een keer een lipstick van Gosh proberen, hoor er veel goede dingen over!
