Skin tone for reference: light with neutral/warm tones. I use No. 23 natural beige in Korean BB creams.
The one that started it all: Lime Crime Shroom. The first lipstick I bought out of my comfort zone that I really loved.
The MLBB: MAC Midimauve. I’ve yet to find anything as close to my natural lips as this one.
The perfect red: Lime Crime Pumpkin and Lime Crime Riot. I can’t do “red” red and these two are good compromises.
The current favorite: I’m Meme Tic Toc Tint Lip in Smoky Amber.
The one you have backups of: Lime Crime Squash. When I found out it was discontinued, I searched high and low for backups and found two.
The major disappointment: Pat McGrath lipsticks. Bought them during the Cyber Monday sale and I’m glad I didn’t pay full price for them. They’re pretty but also fussy and not worth the trouble.
The one that was surprising: Wet n Wild Catsuit in Give Me Mocha. I didn’t expect it to be great and it is now one of my favorites.
The shade range you can’t resist: Warm browns, yellow based shades, and warm nude beiges.
The formula you love: everything except formulas with shimmer, metallic, or sparkly finishes.
The one with great packaging: Etude House Soft Drink Tint. It comes in the cutest soda pop bottle and everyone asks about it when I pull it out.
The one(s) in your bag: It changes all the time, but right now it’s MAC Midimauve
The one(s) in your desk at work: Aquaphor.
The one that is most worn: I go through obsessions, so no one lipstick is worn most.
The one that is least worn: Any red lipstick I’ve ever bought.
The brand that is your favorite: Probably Lime Crime bc that’s the one I own most of. I also like MAC’s bullet lipsticks.
The lip balm that tops all lip balms: Does Laneige lip mask count?
The latest purchase: Wet n Wild Catsuit in Give Me Mocha, to replace the one that got ruined.
The one(s) on your wishlist: Dear Dahlia lipstick in Amber, and one of those Hermès lipsticks in the cute tubes.
The one(s) you always recommend: None at the moment.
The honorable mention: Melt Cosmetics bullet lipsticks. Bought some on sale, was pleasantly surprised. I like Voyeur, Tomboy, and Pink Heels.
