I Love Lipsticks (tag)

Hi everyone,
I saw a tag on Laur's Beauty blog, and being the lip product hoarder I am ... I had to do it, even though I wasn't tagged.

How many lipsticks do you have?
In January 2011, I actually counted all my makeup for a Count Your Makeup tag (which was never posted), it was about 52, I bought a "few" lipsticks since then

What was the first lipstick that you ever bought?
Maybelline Moisture Extreme lipsticks in Petal and Watermelon in a buy one get one free, as shown below.
As you can tell, I had no idea what I was doing back then, but I distinctly remember seeing these in Seventeen magazine as a trend for orange lips. Watermelon was the one for dark or medium skintones, but I got it anyway... Never wore it in public. The texture of these are definitely HG status, I might post a review if anyone's interested... But they're discontinued, Maybelline better bring them back-_-

Which is your newest lipstick?
Nuance Salma Hayek lipstick
in Coral, it's a lovely color but I keep forgetting to wear it when I go out.

See my review & lip swatch here

What is your favorite lipstick brand
I would have to say Maybelline, because I probably own the most from this brand. Revlon has a very nice color selection but their lipsticks aren't the smoothest, or at least the colors I have.

Favorite Pink
Maybelline Pink Please, see my review &lip swatch here

Favorite Nude
Skintone nude: Revlon Nude Attitude.

Darker nude: I personally don't care for that MLBB color because I might as well not wear any lip color, but Revlon Beyond Natural Liptint SPF 15 in Neutral Pink is not too bad

Favorite Coral/Peach
Coral: Nuance Salma Hayek lipstick in Coral, review & lip swatch here
Peach: Victoria's Secret Perfect lipstick in Heartbeat, review & lip swatchhere

Favorite Red
None. I own like 2 red lipsticks, and I'm not confident enough to wear it in public yet
I am interested in trying the L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge in Target Red though

Favorite Hot Pink
I am also not confident enough to wear hot pinks, but one that I own is Maybelline Moisture Extreme in Petal (see above)

Favorite Brown
I only own one peach-brown nude color, which is very unflattering on me.

Favorite Plum
None, anything purple toned does not look good on my lips.

Favorite Texture/Finish
Maybelline Moisture Extreme, once again, discontinued -_-  but Nuance Salma Hayek (see above) is actually creamy and gives a semi-matte finish.

Other favorite lipsticks
Wet n Wild Just Peachy (903C), see my review & lip swatches here
Maybelline Moisture Extreme Sugar Plum Ice (discontinued)

Favorite Glosses
For formula: C.O. Bigelow lip glosses (see review & lip swatches here)
For color: Revlon Super Lustrous (see review & lip swatches here)
For shine: Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lip glosses

Actually seeing them now the shine is kind of similar, but the C.O. Bigelow lip glosses lose their shine after maybe 20 minutes because they're so thin, and Revlon Super Lustrous is a little better... But the VS Beauty Rush lip gloss stays the most glossy and shiny

I tag Maggie, Ashley, Citrine, and of course anyone else that wants to do it.
