The Lip Product Addict Tag

I lifted this from The Gloss Menagerie, because it sounded like easy fun, and I did a tag for my birthday last year, too. This is just a casual, for-fun tag, with iPhone photos and cheesy filters. Because sometimes you need to satisfy your inner hipster.

(Here's the original tag. Have I done this before? I thought I did, but I couldn't find it. So. Maybe not.)

1. Favorite balm/lip treatment:
For daytime, Epic Blend's More Moisture in Unflavored. For nights or when my lips are very dry (for example, after wearing a matte lipstick all day), Osmia Organics Honey-Myrrh Lip Repair.

2. Best eye-catching red:
This is a hard one - I like so many reds! Let's say, for high-impact, NARS Pure Matte in Mascate. For something classic, Rouge d'Armani 400. For bold yet elegant, Dior Trafalgar (I did actually buy a full-size, and am not still dabbing at the little card, thank you very much).

3. Best drugstore & best luxury:
Drugstore: Maybelline's Color Elixirs! Lots of shades, slight staining from darker shades, and a not-sticky, glossy formula. I have several. My favorite is Intoxicating Spice - I'm wearing it here.
Luxury: I'm a Dior girl. I like their Rouge Diors and Addicts. And, uh, everything else. Except...(see 5).

4. Best MAC lipstick:
I don't really have any of the "easy to wear" or natural MAC shades, because I don't necessarily find the formula to be my go-to for everyday lipsticks. I like MAC for its interesting shades - usually bold ones - so I pick MAC Lady Danger - #ladiesdanger time!

5. The most disappointing lip product:
The Dior Fluid Stick! It was pretty at first, but as time wore on, it became FAR TOO TACKY. Do not want.

6. Liner - yes or no?
Mostly no. I have a red one, for um, credibility reasons, or something, and I keep a clear one around to help fix lines when I wear a really pigmented lipstick. Or one prone to bleeding. But it's an as necessary kind of thing.

7. Best gloss:
Dior Addict Gloss, hands down.

8. Something extra:
I squee for minis.
