The Lip Addict Tag.

When I was tagged to do this post by my soul sister and fellow middle ager Lisa I knew it just had to top the priorities list. I'm a huge lippie addict - it's usually the first thing I splurge on when hitting the department stores - so what's more perfect that a tag expressing just how much I adore lipstick?!

I tag any of my gorgeous readers to do this post and be sure to tweet me if you do because I'd love to read your answers! <3

What is your favourite lip balm / treatment?

I couldn't live without lip balm. It's a rare day when I don't have one in my pocket or at worst - within a five metre sprinting distance. I apply it before I go to sleep, underneath matte lipstick and essentially whenever my lips are feeling a little dry. Personally I love a good drugstore balm: for intense hydration you really can't beat a tub of vaseline! It's not very glamorous but it does the job. 

My most used lip balms are probably the Maybelline Baby Lips range. I feel this hype has died down a little but I'm still a firm advocate for the almond scented one (lovely to wear at night) and the cherry for a little colour. They're super inexpensive and I can't find anything negative to say about them at all!

What is your favourite eye catching red?

To be perfectly honest with you I don't wear a huge amount of bright red lipsticks. Because I have quite full lips they tend to look overwhelming and a little OTT for my taste. However if I am doing a red lip I tend to go for MAC Ladybug paired with the Brick lipliner. It's super moisturising and gives off a lovely bold red.

Best Luxury & drugstore products?

For luxury it would have to be my one true love: Charlotte Tilbury. The packaging is just so decadent and the colours of beautiful. The only thing I have to say with this one, is I have to apply lip balm underneath otherwise it seeps into the fine lines on my lips. Nonetheless an absolute stunner you need in your life!

For drugstore I'm torn between two: Kiko and No7. Kiko was a brand I discovered in Venice a little over a year ago on a trip with friends. We (mainly me, lets be honest) went a little crazy and bought tonnes of new makeup. The coral lipstick pictured below is insanely bright and looks gorgeous with a tan. The texture is so buttery and the colour pay off is absolutely amazing! 

Alternatively I have to say, I have a bit of a thing for No7 lipsticks. I feel as though they're marketed towards 'older' women but after receiving one in a free GWP I became obsessed. They're matte without being drying (take tips Charlotte Tilbury!) and the colours are stunning. 

Favourite MAC lipstick?

Hands down See Sheer from the Lustre collection. I'm currently on my third one of these because I literally wear it everyday. It matches my lip colour perfectly giving just a hint of red. It's softening, beautiful and my 100% my favourite lip product ever!

Lip Liner: Yes or No?

It definitely depends. If I'm applying a quick coat of See Sheer then no, I don't really need it. But If we're talking super dark, Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry, then 100% its an essential! I wear the shade Berry Naughty with it and its perfect to create a more defined edge to your lips. Because nothing is worse than smeared lipstick - am I right ladies?!

Favourite lip gloss?

I don't tend to reach for lip gloss as much as I used to, but back in the day (AKA 2013) I was obsessed with the Revlon glosses. They were a little sticky but super moisturising and the packaging was lovely. Aside from that I also had a Clarins lip gloss (that I can't remember the name of) that smelt incredible!!
