Lipstick Tag

I saw this post on Dee's blog and thought I'd copy it.

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
Yes. My mum used to sell Nutrimetics (or Constan as it was called back then) so she had lots of little sample lipsticks that I used to play with.

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

I think I was around 13. It was a blue lipstick that changed to a bright pink when applied and it smelled like bubblegum. It had hearts all over the packaging and I thought it was the best thing ever. Before that I used to wear the Maybelline roller ball glosses. I wish they still made them. 

3. Pink or red lipstick?

Both. Although I wear pink lipstick more, I love red lipstick too.

4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?

$50 for a Chanel lipstick and a YSL lipstick. Prices here are crazy.

5. And the cheapest?

I don't remember. It'd be one from Priceline, probably a Maybelline lipstick which would have cost around $15.

6. What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?

Is this a trick question? I haven't done anything bizarre with a lipstick, other than put it on my lips. What else could you do with lipstick?

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?
Chantecaille Lip Chic. It's the nicest lipstick I've ever used, it has great colour payoff and feels like a lip balm.


  1. I remember playing with my mum's sample lipsticks too. :) Ahh the innocent days.

  2. Great post! So many mums used to sell Nutrimetics back in the day. I like pink and red lipsticks too ;)
