Besides fashion, make up is another big passion of mine. I am a compulsive make up buyer, I buy too many beauty products so I end up with boxes stuffed with products I have only used once...I just can't help it ! I am owner of a gold customer card at Sephora and also at Limoni perfume shops !. I am gonna answer to some questions about lipsticks now, they were passed me, or should I say I was tagged by one of my best twitter friends and lovely fellow blogger, Ilaria from Make Up compulsivo, so here I am, ready to answer and I am gonna use english only mostly cause I don't wanna bore myself with translating twice and I don't wanna duplicate the pics, so bear with me italian readers, next time I am gonna do the double language posting again !.
My beauty corner...two drawers full with make up items plus various boxes on the top...:-)
1. How many lipsticks do you have ?
Well, I have many lipsticks, even tho I also buy glosses very often but this survey is about lipsticks so I will count them only...I have 47 lipsticks !
2. What is the first lipstick you have ever bought ?
I think I was 13 and it was pink, from Deborah LOL
3. What is the last lipstick you have bought ? A neutral lipstick from Estee Lauder, n. 12 "Beige" from autumn-winter new collection
4. What is your fave lipstick brand ?
Chanel, the "Rouge Allure" series and I also have a soft spot for those from Yves Saint Laurent, they're excellent and I love their packaging !
5. Fave pink lipstick ?
It's hard to answer to that, cause most of my lipsticks are pink, I will say one from Dior, Dior Addict n. 669 Rose Starlet. I also love n. 74 "Comedia" from Chanel Rouge Allure.
6. Fave nude lipstick ?
Chanel Coco Shine BOY n. 54
7. Fave peach/coral lipstick ?
I'll say 187 Genial - Chanel...again Chanel !
8. Fave red lipstick ?
This is so easy, it's n. 14 from Chanel, Rouge Allure, the name is Passion and I sure have a passion for it ! I adore it, to me this is the best red lipstick ever, both color and result on the lips, it's soft and stays put for hours and hours !
9. Fave purple lipstick ?
I don't use this color often, but last year somebody told me purple really looks good on me and then I had an excuse to rush into the shop and I ended up buying a Lancome lipstick, it's very nice, it's n. 330 - Rouge Absolu from Lancome !
10. Fave fuchsia lipstick ?
I adore the one from Guerlain, with a tiny mirror inside the packaging :) Rouge G Serie Noir from Guerlain, limited edition n. 70 and another one from Estee Lauder, I remember leaving my boyfriend in the middle of a parking lot with a broken car to rush into Sephora and buy it...it was all worth it, it lasts sooo much and it's fab !
11. Weird fave color ?
I think it's orange...in the past I thought it wasn't a good idea to wear an orange lipstick also cause it makes your teeth seem yellow LOL but then I followed this summer's trend...by the way, that time I went into the shop to buy it we got stuck inside Limoni shop cause the automatic doors broke and we couldn't get out ! :-D. The lipstick is YSL n. 15, as following
12. Fave dark color ?
I don't like dark colors much on me...everytime I end up buying them I regret it cause I think dark lip color makes me look older, anyway I'll say this one from Dior, n. 993 Prune decadent...it's so dark on my lips !
13. Fave texture/finish ?
I prefer creamy that don't end up drying the lips too much but also don't end up on the corners of your lips. I confess I am also lazy so I don't use often the lip liner and then I prefer lipsticks that don't necessarily need a lip liner before !
14. Other fave lipsticks ? The more I have them, the more I want them...moreover many lipsticks I have are inside my bags, I always carry make up products with me and more than one shade of lipstick to change my make up during the day :)
