Tag! The Lip Product Addict Tag.

Hi everyone! During the week I was tagged by Alice and Aisling to do the Lip Product Addict Tag. This is a really fun post and I had a-lot of fun writing it, although my hands ended up covered in swatches again! So here it is, I hope you enjoy diving into my world of lip products!

1) Favourite balm/treatment?
My go-to in this category is definitely Blistex Relief Cream. I do enjoy Carmex from time to time but Blistex is my number 1. I love a medicated treatment as I have majorly dry lips. This product has Camphor to soothe the lips and Lanolin to protect and a touch of peppermint to keep me fresh - yum!

2)Best eye-catching red?
I'm finding this one quite hard to decide as I originally thought I'd say Ruby Woo by MAC but I'm really loving Howl by Illamasqua at the minute. It's a deeper, terracotta red and I feel really confident when I wear it. 

3) Best Luxury and Best Drugstore?
I'm a massive matte lip gal so my number 1 has got to be Illamasqua's range (you all knew that anyway.) As for drugstore I don't actually know. Not to sound like a snob but all my lipsticks are high end! Apart from one Topshop and one No.7.. oops! I have some of the Rimmel Apocolips and they're okay.. I've just never looked at lipsticks! What would you recommend I try out? 

4) Best MAC Lipstick?
Eep I only have 2! But ever since I've bought Rebel I've worn it at every possible opportunity. I know I love matte lips but it makes a nice change and I think it's great for an every-day purple.

5) The most disappointing?
Not majorly disappointing but I didn't really like the No. 7 Stay Perfect lipstick that I picked up. I did like the formula but the colour was much to shimmery for me, a tad tacky. I was not a fan. 

6) Liner - yes or no?
3 months ago I would have said no but I am trying my hardest to get into liner and trying to improve my application skills. When I've done it well I love how it helps staying power and prevents bleeding/feathering of the product. 

7) Best gloss?
I never wear lip gloss - ever. I don't really like it, its too sticky, too messy, gets in my hair and I'm just not a fan. I really couldn't comment. Apocolips is about as far as I've gone in the direction of a gloss and even then I tend to pat with some tissue so it goes matte.

8) Something extra?
Lip tints weren't even mentioned in this post and they rival my Illamasqua lipsticks as my favourite lip product! I mostly use them as part of my day to day face routine as they're so wearable and you can easily pop some of your favourite balm/treatment over the top to keep your lips conditioned. My two favourites by Topshop and Urban Decay have been discontinued so I'm on the look for a new favourite!
