The Lipstick Tag

Hello again SanSeoulites! I am finally back to having a small amount of free time so I can share my super awesome blog posts with you all. I was tagged in this post by Chubbychicsdiary and I absolutely L-O-V-E her blog. It’s almost like having a penpal. Yes, I am showing my age here. Who doesn’t remember having one in school & being so excited to learn about someone else’s life? Now onto the fun part.

The Rules
1.TAG 3 bloggers to answer these same questions.
2.Those bloggers will TAG 3 more bloggers of their choice with the same questions & rules.
3.No tag backs

The Questions

1. How many lipsticks do you own?


I have 17. It’s such a small collection, but even then it is taking forever to make my way through this stash.

2. What was your first ever lipstick?

When I was younger my first was the drugstore brand NYX. As I got older my first fancy lippie was from Estee Lauder. My wallet may have cried as a teenager, but I felt luxurious. (Sidenote: I grew up in a small town and there was no such thing as Sephora or MAC. *gasp*)

3. What is your most worn lipstick?

On a daily basis when I am in a rush I usually reach for one of my Tarte lipsticks if I am going for a nude or natural color. If I am feeling more adventureous then I usually gravitate towards Memebox.

4. What is your favorite brand for lipsticks?

I love my MAC lipstick so much that I don’t want to use it. I discovered it when I had my make-up done for graduation & I fell in love.

5. What is your favorite finish?

I love glossy, but I think my hubby makes it a mission to remove it from my lips so I usually just stick with matte.

6. What is the last lipstick you bought?

The last one I received was Vivito from the Soothing Sista X Memebox collaboration when I lucked out during a restock party so it has been a few months.

7. How many lip products do you currently have in your bag?

I usually carry whatever lipstick I’m currently wearing or my lip balm from Banila Co.

8. What lipstick do you use to rock a red lip?


I alternate between two. The first is from Etude House and you can catch the review I did here. The second is from Memebox. I was actually very surprised at the quality when I received these. They have a smooth application and are pretty long lasting.

9. How do you store your lipsticks?

I have my cute acrylic case & I make it work even though I think it was meant for nail polish.

10. What lip products are you currently lusting over?

I have been wanting to try the Berrisom My Lip Tint Pack. You apply it to your lips, wait, & then peel it off for lasting color! It looks like so much fun.



I hope you all have enjoyed The Lipstick Tag! There are so many people I would choose so with that being said…I nominate everyone reading this!!

The Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile blogger award

First off I wanted to say thank you  to Rubie’s Life for nominating me this award! Muchas gracias!

Rules for the versatile Award

  1. Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy. 2. Include a link to their blog. 3. Next, select 11 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. 4.

Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

7 things about me:

  2. My eyes change color.
  3. I have started my own eat healthier challenge. No fast food, no sodas, & trying to make better choices. My body is my temple.

2. Favorite make up you cannot live without?

A girl can never go wrong with a good lippie! Lipstick always makes me feel complete.

3. What’s your fashion style?

Classic casual. I tend to lean towards looks that will last for awhile. Now I am taking the time to invest in quality pieces.

Owning my own business hands down. I am a very determined person so hopefully that is a dream that will come true!

8. Favorite anime and why.

Sailor Moon. It was one of the first that I had ever seen. I was a part of the Toonami generation. LOL Honestly I loved the magic, girl power, & anything having to do with space. This led me to discover the mangas & the subbed versions so I could see the original storyline. Now I see Sailor Moon & it is just part of my childhood.

9. Favorite make up look.

I tend to keep a natural look. It’s not that I wouldn’t mind being more daring, but making my hands cooperate is another story.

The Liebster Award

liebster pic


I am very excited to write this post because I am what I like to call a newborn blogger. That is newer than a newbie, but in time I will learn & I will grow. This award is chosen by other bloggers & the rules are very simple to follow as you can see below:

  • Answer the questions given by the nominator
  • Nominate 11 blogs with less than 200 followers (I’m ambitious so I did 12)
  • Create 11 questions for the nominees to answer
  • Let the bloggers you have nominated know via their blogs/ social media

The Nominees


 My Answers

What is the one make-up item you can’t go without? 

I could not go without my Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara. They are a cruelty free brand & this mascara draws attention to my eyes instead of the bags under them. Not a bad deal for $20!

Favorite Drugstore brand?

Right now I’m in love with Korean make up. It has to be a tie between Etude House & Banila Co., but Maybelline is a definite favorite stateside. I tend to pick up their BB cream or eyeliner to hold me over if I’m waiting for other products. I think it’s a great brand for everyday wear.

Favorite High-End brand?

After sitting down for a consultation & having my make-up done for graduation I am a new fan of MAC. I went for a matte look since I needed something to last for hours & this did the trick. It lasted all day & my photos came out great! That’s all the proof I needed.

Bold or minimal eye make-up?

Minimal, but that is mostly because I am a total make-up noob. Yup, I love so many dramatic looks, but getting my hands to cooperate & make it happen is another story. In minimal make-up I always feel good because I still look like me; I’m just a little enhanced.

Favorite song at the moment?

I currently can’t stop dancing to Thinking About You by Loco feat Jay Park. It’s in the k-hip hop genre so go check it out & prepare to fall in love too!

Favorite shop for clothes?

Forever 21 & Agaci are my go to shops around town, but I do enjoy thrift stores & checking out Top Shop online.

Tea or Coffee?

Tea all the way! I’m a huge fan of Tazo teas & it is one of the few things I will actually drink if I happen upon a Starbucks.

One place in the world you want to visit?

South Korea!!!! I think I might go into shock if I ever go. So much k-pop, k-drama, skincare & cosmetics & OMG the food! See I’m super excited. For now I have to check out Korean establishments locally, but someday I will make it there.

Best food to snack on?

Lindor truffles are my guilty pleasure. 🙂 Got to love chocolate!

Blog goals for 2015?

I just started blogging so I want to get the hang of everything. I hope that I am able to gain a following & that people enjoy seeing a glimpse of my world.

3 Celebrity crushes?

I like my rainbows how I like my men – one in every color hahaha! I kid. I kid. Seriously though does it hurt to be so gorgeous!? I think the common denominator would be personality types. I like guys who have a sense of humor & carry themselves well. (My husband is very lucky to be all of those things!) ^_^

shemar moore

Getting to see Shemar Moore is one of the perks of watching Criminal Minds.

lee dong wook

Lee Dong-Wook who I first saw him on the Korean show called Roommate. He seems very down to earth & has a great sense of humor. Once I discovered he’s an actor I had to check out his dramas.

jensen ackles

Jensen Ackles who is probably better known as Dean Winchester from Supernatural. He plays the part of the cool older brother, but he is a surprisingly sensitive soul.

  1. Favorite make-up brand (can be drugstore or high-end)?
  2. How would you describe your fashion style?
  3. Favorite shop for clothes?
