Lipstick Tag

I was tagged by Anju to do this, and thought it's a really fun tag and I LOVE lipsticks so...

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother's lipsticks?
Of course! :) And my aunts' too. I would sit in front of the mirror and do Annie Lennox's 'Why'.
How many times do I have to try to tell you *apply lipstick*.... Why don't you ever learn to keep your big mouth shut *pout*

My unforgettable lipstick experience: In the 6th grade my blue (but colorless) lip balm stick was "confiscated" by the seniors. They always do these weekly checks to feel superior or something. You know, all girls school- 'no cute boys to look at during lunch time, so let's snoop around instead.' My mother had bought it for me and it was beautiful- light blue glossy tube & the stick was also light blue, it looked like a lipstick. It was practically brand new when they found it in my school bag and made a big deal about it. It's COLORLESS!!! We had a temporary class teacher (whom most people think is the most arrogant person ever, btw) and boy did she gave me a damn hard time about it! I didn't get it back. I think she kept it & used it herself! I didn't tell my mother about it. Funny thing is, the teacher is a colleague of my mother's now. They are good friends. I haven't met her again yet, but I know exactly how to deal with her when I do. I will make sure that it's one hell of a full circle.

2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?
19, I think. It was a matte lipstick in a dusty rose shade. Forgot the brand, but it looked like the L'Oreal lipstick packaging- dull gold, square tube.

3. Pink or red lipstick?
Pink is for femininity, and red is for passion. Gotta have both.

4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought?
Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick- Rs.2200

5. And the cheapest?
A tiny lipstick I bought for my mother was Rs.5, that's the first time. For myself, it would have to be Lakme Enrich Satin- Rs.225.

6. What's the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick?
Apply it on a bf ;p. Whaat? He let me haha. Shh...I hope my hubby won't read this! :O

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?
I think most brands hardly go wrong with lipsticks and I love too many so I can't be biased here. Bourjois, Lakme, Colorbar, MAC, ZA, IN2IT, Maybelline, Make Up For Ever, Revlon, Etude House, Lancome, Anna Sui, Shu Uemura, etc.  I like collecting lipsticks, so I want at least one lipstick from every brand.

I tag everyone in my bloglist on the right there and also the top commenters ;).
Hope you're all having a relaxing Sunday.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3
