Chanel Chanel Rouge Allure Lip Gloss Lipstick

Confessions of a Lipstick Addict…

I absolutely love lipstick…it’s probably my favourite beauty product.  So many colours, so many brands, so many choices!!  I just love it.  I find it is the easiest way to brighten up the face (other than good concealer) and it is a fantastic way to get a pop of colour…especially on dreary days, sunny days, “feeling low” kind of days…you name it.

I particularly love lipstick because of my skin tone.  I feel I can get away with wearing almost any colour.  The only colour that doesn’t like my medium-dark skin tone is light frosty pink!  And I think if I tried hard enough, I could probably make it work! LOL!

When the lovely Ana of Ravishing Roses (check out her great blog) tagged me in her Lipstick Tag, I couldn’t resist sharing a little bit of my lipstick obsession with all of you.

1. How many lipsticks do you own?

I would estimate about 100+.

2. What was the first lipstick you ever owned?

I can’t believe I remember this:  Kissing Potion.  I was four-years-old and my mom gave it to me.  Now, it was a roll-on lip gloss, not necessarily lipstick…but I remember being obsessed with it and feeling like a “big girl” when I wore it!

3. Which lipstick do you wear the most?

The lipstick that I turn to most frequently and have bought over and over again is MAC Touch.  It is the most perfect brown-toned nude for my skin tone that I have ever found.  It is a Lustre finish – creamy with a glossy sheen.  It looks particularly stunning with smokey eyes.  LOVE.

4. What is your favourite brand of lipstick?

I don’t really have a favourite brand.  I find Guerlain’s formulations are wonderful, but the shade range is sad. I love Kiko also.

5. What is your favourite finish?

Honestly – I love them all.  I love dramatic matte finishes, glossy sheens, high-gloss, sparkles, shimmer, you name it, I’ll rock it.

6. What is the last lipstick you bought?

The last lipstick I bought was Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Antigone….I think.

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

Ok.  Just emptied my bag.  Whoa.  I have more than I expected!!

  • EOS Lipbalm in Honesuckle Honeydew
  • Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Jicky (#104)
  • Chanel Aqualumière Lipgloss in Bubbleplum (#74)
  • NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake
  • Guerlain Gloss d’Enfer in Rouge Shebam (#420)
  • Giorgio Armani Sheer Lipstick #30 (pinky beige colour)
  • Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Insouciance
  • Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Antigone
  • MAC Lustre Lipstick in Sophisto
  • MAC Lustre Lipstick in Plumful
  • Kiko Ultra Glossy Lip Pencil in #603 (the most perfect glittery pink nude)

8. What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?

I love Guerlain’s Rouge Automatique Rouge d’Enfer #121 Strawberry Red.  It is the perfect red for my skin tone.  It’s bright, eye-catching and kinda sexy!

9. How do you store your lipsticks?

OMG – my lipsticks are everywhere.  There are a handful in every bag and clutch I own, and I have a few tupperware boxes full of them.

10. What lip products are you currently lusting over?

I desperately want YSL Volupté Tint-in-Oil in Pink About Me, Chanel’s Rouge Allure Lipstick in Jean and I want to try some of those Too Faced La Crème Color Drenched Lip Creams (longest name ever).

  3. OMG Kissing Potion! I had a Bonne Belle roll-on lipgloss that was so goopy it was awesome.
    Where does one acquire Kiko in your neck of the woods (ie Canada)? I need me some Kiko.
    Haha your bag content made me laugh – do you even have room for anything else besides lip products in there?

    1. No! My bag is so heavy! My husband thinks it’s ridiculous! Lol!! I need to downsize, totally. Unfortunately, there are no Kikos in N. America. They don’t even ship over here! Sigh. So, I stock up each time I cross the pond.
