Lipsticks TAG

I totally stole this TAG from Mateja's Beauty Blog and I wasn't tagged.
But this one called my name since I accumulated quite some lipsticks. I am sure they are making babies in the wardrobe because I don't remember buying them all. =P

Okay, where do I begin? Probably with my full collection? 

How many lipsticks do you have?
If I count each of them (including the minis and crayons) I have 23 lipsticks. I think I got most of them (80%) in the last year when my love for lipsticks grew. 
More after the jump!

When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
To be honest, I am not exactly sure. I remember one time when my twin and I got into my mother's makeup and a short while after that she got rid of most of her makeup. Because she didn't use it at all. So..  I only saw my grandma wearing lipstick in my family. 

How old were you when you bought your first lipstick and what was it?
I was 18. I remember going shopping with an ex and there I saw it - it wasn't technically a classic lipstick but one of the first liquid lipsticks or a hybrid between a lipstick and a gloss. It was by Lancome. A burgundy shade that I was too afraid to actually wear. 
What is your newest lipstick?
The Essence Lip cream which I wrote about here

The most expensive lipstick I have ever bought ...
Is the Makeup Factory lipstick in Intense Fuchsia. It's the perfect color, well at least I found out I have at least another similar shade of lipstick. But the staying power is great. The scent? Not so much.
And the cheapest?
Well, technically a lip pencil, but I like using them instead of lipsticks or sometimes underneath. All the Essence lip liners. I have four. 

What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?
The "red concealer" thing. I don't think I did anything more bizzare than that. I like my lipsticks way too much ;).
If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?
Catrice. They are my favorite lipstick brand. Inexpensive and great quality, especially the lipsticks from the Limited Editions. 

Pink or red lipstick?
Red. I love red lipsticks. The darker, the better.
Favourite pink?
Probably the Essence Blush My Lips or the liquid lipstick by Catrice Mission PinkPossible.

Favourite nude?
Umm.. I'm really not into nude lipsticks.. If I want nude lips, I use a lip balm. But I did swear by the Essence Natural Beauty and Catrice Muave your lips

Favourite unusual shade?
H&M lipstick in Landinski. Why? Because it's the craziest color I own. And it actually suits me. I can't wait to wear it during Winter months. 

Favourite dark shade?
Definitely my beloved L'Oreal Leatita Pure Red. It's brilliant. The application can be a little tricky, but once it's on, it's on for good. And the texture... Oh boy. It's one of the nicest drugstore lipsticks. 

Your biggest lipstick lemming?
Probably the upcoming Louboutin lipsticks. I like the design of the packaging and I'm curious. But then again, I don't think that I'd ever pay a steep price for a nice lipstick. There are many more affordable brands.
