The Makeup Addict Tag

This week I wanted to do one tag and I asked you on Facebook, if you can recommend me any good. Mateja gave me a nice list of tags and for the beginning I decided to do The Makeup Addict Tag. This tag was created by Kat from Tales of a Pale Face, and as much as I can see by the date, this is quite a new tag.


Which product do you still keep buying more of despite having plenty in your collection?
Everything? :P I’d say blushes or eyeshadows. I have many blushes (I still need to count them, though) and I’m mostly using like 6 of them all the time.  I do have many eyeshadows too, not mentioning the dupes, but they get more chance to be used on my face (meaning eyes) than most of the blushes.

What’s the one product you couldn’t live without?
Lip balm. It doesn’t matter which lip balm it is, just as long it moisturizes my lips for a while. I can walk around without any makeup on my face without a problem, but I can’t stand having dry lips.
Can I cheat a bit here and also mention a nail polish? My nails need to be polished; otherwise they brake and are not pretty at all.

Favourite makeup brand?
I have to go with Catrice here. This brand has its flops and tops, but some of my favourite products are from Catrice. Polishes are not my favourite anymore, because they ruined the formula and the brush, but foundations, blushes, lipsticks, eyeshadows – here they have some amazing products. At the moment on the top of my list are Catrice Nude Illusion foundation, Catrice lip smoothers, blush Mandy-rine and Velvet Finish concealer.

How big is your makeup collection?
Uf, it’s big. My family would definitely say it is way too big. But I can’t help, I’m a beauty blogger. :P But no, really, I have to go through products and give some away. There’s no point of me keeping the products I don’t use anymore.

And how do you like to store it?
I’m having all my makeup on a closet’s shelves where I use to store books. I’m using plastic containers that I buy in different stores (Spar, Chinese store).  In them I store everything except lip products. Those I store in mugs or hand-made stands from cardboard boxes. Nail polishes I store in show boxes.

My collection at the beginning of the year. It grew since then.

How many items of makeup have you got in your handbag at the moment?
Not a lot, really. I’m having some Essence hand wipes, a hand cream and a nail file in my purse right now. I’m actually having a little beauty corner at work, so I don’t need to wear all the beauty stuff with me all the time (a lipgloss, a hand lotion, a cuticle cream and so on). Usually I also wear in my purse a lipgloss and/or a lipstick I’m wearing on my lips that day.

If you could raid another blogger’s stash, who would it be?
Hmmm … I actually think it would be very interesting to peek into each blogger’s stash. ;)

How long does your usual makeup routine take and how many products do you use?
My daily makeup routine takes me 10 min, because I often use only a foundation, a concealer, a blush and mascara. If I do brows, it takes me few minutes more. I guess, that’s around 5 products if I don’t count brushes.

Have you ever bought makeup knowing you wouldn’t use it?
No, I always buy products with a purpose of using them. But if often happens that I used them few times and then put them in my makeup drawers and never use them again. 

I won’t tag anyone, but if you’d like to do this challenge let me know, because I’d love to read your answers. Thank you for reading!

  1. Js sm glede rdečil ista, jih sploh ne more nehat kupovat, ampak je pa res da jih kar redno izmenjujem. Ne morem pa tudi nehat kupovat šmink, nosim pa bolj kot ne samo ene in iste :D
    Bi bilo pa res zanimivo pogledat v marsikatero zbirko ličil :D

    1. Saj za šminke isto velja, ampak se mi zdi, da jih še pogosteje menjujem kot blushe.:)
      Mislim, da bi se v zbirki vsake blogerke počutila, kot da je božič, hehe. :P

  2. O, fino, da si se odločila za ta tag :) Ga bom tudi jaz naredila enkrat v prihodnosti. Bi pa rada enkrat videla tvojo zbirko kozmetike bolj podrobno, ker sem pač firbec :D Tako, ideja za objavo.

    1. Komaj čakam tvojega. :)
      Saj sem že razmišljala, da bi napisala post o zbirki kozmetike, ampak je imam toliko, da bi bil predolg. :P Verjetno bom naredila tako, da bom posamezno predstavljala določen tip, npr. blushe, highlighterje, senčila itd. :)

  3. Uuu kul je tag, mogla bi i ja ga jedan dan otipkat samo se moram sjetit :D
