Procrastinating is something I do whenever I have something I should really be doing. For example I should have been writing up a review of a lipstick, instead I was creating this simple nail art. Sometimes when a job needs doing you just gotta sit down and do something else. 

I know it isn't lipstick related but I really loved how my nails looked and thought I would share them with you.

Duping - MAC Girl About Town

I am back for a second dupe and I believe this one is just as good as the first one.
Girl About Town was one of those Mac lipsticks I only needed to see once before I knew I needed it in my collection. It is a classic hot pink suitable for all skin tones. True to fashion I already had a very similar shade lurking in my collection in the shape of  17 Lasting Fix lipstick in Pink Power.
Top - Mac Girl About Town, Bottom - 17 Pink Power

On the hand swatch the 17 lipstick appears ever so slightly sheerer but that definitely isn't noticeable on the lips. Girl About Town is an amplified creme finish which makes it thick and opaque on the first swatch. The 17 is a lasting fix lipstick and therefor the finish is ever so slightly more matte. 

Top - Mac Girl About Town, Bottom - 17 Pink Power

Mac Girl About Town is £14.00 and can be purchased Here.
17  Pink Power is £4.29 and can be purchased Here

Buying - Look Beauty

Look Beauty have been around for some time now but for some reason I have always just let them pass me by, However when Superdrug offered 50% off the entire range I knew it was my time to stop and take notice.

Obviously I picked up three lipsticks. A fail safe nude, a classic red and a summer bright. I can't wait to try them and really test out those magnetic lids in my handbag.

Look Beauty are currently offering £2 off their lipsticks at Superdrug. You can find them here.

Lipstick Count

Just a quickie because I technically cheated at my own lipstick tag. At last count I had 152 lipsticks but that was a fairly long time ago so I decided to round up all the lipsticks I could find and have a quick recount. 

Lipstick count = 192

(Not including stains, crayons or liquid lipsticks) 

It is safe to say I am now operating a strict one in one out rule from now on. Nobody needs 200 lipsticks. Do they?

Wearing - Hollywood

Sorry for the picture heavy post today. For some reason I decided to create a look based on Gretchen from Prison Break and this was the result. Whether I achieved what I wanted to, I'm not entirely sure, but I really liked the final look. Enjoy.

Lipstick: Seventeen Mirror Shine - Hollywood

For reference, I always apply some lip balm and a thin layer of either concealer or foundation to nude out the lip before putting on any lip colour.

Tagging - The Lipstick Tag

I have decided to create a tag especially for us lipstick lovers (because I know there are a lot of us)

I would love it if any of you wanted to do this on your own blog or YouTube. If you don't have a blog then feel free to answer the questions down in the comments. I think it is time all us lipstick addicts come together and share our likes, loves and lipsticks.

How many lipsticks do you own?
At last count it was 152 but I am rather afraid I have got quite a few more since then. Either way it's too many and not enough all at the same time. 
What was your first ever lipstick?
It was a bright fire engine red one from No7 that I got for my dance shows. 
What is your most worn lipstick?
It was once Gosh's famous Darling lipstick but now I don't think I have a most worn. 
What is your favourite brand for lipstick?
Right now it would have to be Revlon. I also love Mac and NYX.
What is your favourite finish?
I find my lips can get quite dry so I prefer a gloss or cream finish over a matte or a satin. 
What was the last lip product you bought?
I think it was two Revlon lip butters in Creme Brulee and Berry Smoothie
How many lip products do you currently have in your handbag? (Including balms and glosses)
Only 5 at the moment.
What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?
My favourite right now is the Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipstick from Lush in Decisive.
How do you store your lipsticks?
At the moment all my lipsticks are in clear acrylic drawers.
What lip products are you currently lusting after?
I will forever be lusting after the Sisley lipsticks. I also can't wait for the Maybelline Color Whispers to get to the UK. 

I hope you enjoyed my tag. Let me know if you decide to do it, I would love to see your answers to these questions. 
Happy tagging.
