      This was triggered by reading an article about those ladies who don't like red lipstick and use things like Chanel Mademoiselle at £25 a pop, though the Boots No7 sheer attract is probably more neutral and for sure its much less expensive.

      Although I have several different shades of lippy I tend to wear only 3 maybe 4 shades - red, pinkish, brownish and purplish. I have tried orange when wearing a red wig but am not convinced that's its really me, as my natural coloring is not that of a redhead.

      Anyways instead of having a poll I thought it might be fun if you could have a think about your lippy, and a new one is a great thing to cheer you up - isn't it, and just think about some of the following questions?

      1. How old were you when you first tried lipstick?

      2. What was the first shade of lippy you bought ...and maybe even the brand?

      3. How many lipsticks do you own?

      4. What is your favorite shade?

      I am sure some of you will want to remember the first kiss, or other evenst involving lipstick and also you may have other questions to add. Enjoy it at this holiday period, and i have attached the article link as well.

      hugs

      1. 20 to 25 not really sure it was not really something I gave much thought to until later on in life.

      2.Subtle shades brown to purple from M&S on wife present buying pretext. Still have them as they were very good and not too violent.

      3 I have purchased about 25 however they came in various multi kits and a few nice ones from Debenhams.

      4. Favorite shade, well that is a good question, I have found that the very natural colour's are best for me unless I want to be hot babe, then well just about anything really most seem to work I just adjust the clothes and shoe colour's to match or just not display the photographs. Most shades seem to look good especially with a pencil around them to accentuate the shape of my mouth. Also I now always add cherry flavor lip gloss as well to finish off, love the lips to look soft and kissable and taste delicious.

      Just bought a new shade from boots No 7 range. It's a lip stain along with their lip crayon. The stain is called Seduction. This could be interesting.

      2. First shade I ever bought was a neutral skin tone so as not to stand out too much.
      3. Now own 4 shades.
      4. Favorit color is an auburn red, though a bright pink is a very close second.

      Has anyone tried the new lip crayons from the Boots No7 range? Sallyann seems to be a big convert at least for daytime lippy. While I was buying her the 'Berry' shade she wanted I saw the Lip Stain range - bit like a felt-tip pen. I was told that they would stain the lips so would last longer but the stain would come off with normal makeup remover. I was advised to use a moisturiser over the stain or even the lip croyon.

      1. About 16. Then a gap of about 4 years until I joined a glammy rock band, then went bonkers.

      2. Probably scarlet red. Love red.

      3. 3 Scarlet reds, 2 pinks, 1 burgundy and a couple of flesh-coloured for pale-lips/big eyes photos.

      4. Red. It's the easiest to colour-change in Photoshop, and also looks the best when layered in lipgloss.
