MAC Film Noir, I don’t even think they make it anymore. It was a darkened reddish brown that was AWFUL on my brown skin…but back then I thought I should just match everything to my skin tone….yuck!

Saint Germain! Which I actually hate now, funnily enough. But I thought I had it going on when I wore it at the time!

Mine was a wet and wild “mood lipstick”!!! It was yellow and went on in various shades of neon pink depending on your “mood”! I hid it from my mom and I LOVED it and felt so sophisticated but I will never forget my best friends sister laughing at me when i wore it at her house after a sleepover!

Something from Hello Kitty bought at H&M, probably. I remember having a pink one that both smelled and tasted like artificial strawberries.

Jane Megabites in Megaberry. I bought it in Milwaukee before some family party and fell in love. Apparently the brand is still around but they discontinued the Megabite lipsticks probably 3 years ago or so, I went through 6 tubes before my last one ran out earlier this year.

it must have been from covergirl my aunt gave me when i was in Highschool. I dont know what to color was. I didn’t even know that lipsticks have names (or numbers)then. LOL.

I cant remember, it was a drugstore brand for sure, but the only lipstick i can remember buying were two, Mac Faux & Mac Hot Gossip. Both i still own to this day and are the only one close to finishing up!

I believe it was MAC Madly Creative from Colour Craft Collection in 2009. that was when I first started to really get into makeup. If not, it was probably something from Maybelline Moisture Extreme line.

CoverGirl Lip Pefection in Sultry and Smolder (bought them at the same time). I bought them a couple of months ago based on your recommendations. πŸ™‚

I went to Yves Rocher, because it was the only place I knew for make up advice, and I asked for a My Lips But Better color. They gave me a longlastig lipstick that still is one of my favourites!

I’m fairly sure it was something by Cutex (that’s how long ago it was) called “Peppermint Pink” and it was flavoured with peppermint (and felt very cooling on the lips).

Revlon’s “Really Red” The retro look was the first thing that I ever inspired me to get into makeup. πŸ™‚

Oh, Sweetie is still one of my favorites.

I really don’t remember but it was probably a Wet N’Wild in either black or lavender (I used to layer them for a dark purple look). I didn’t really start wearing lipstick until my punk/goth days. Sigh, I miss the 80s.

| forgot the exact name of the shade, but it was a Revlon lipstick. The shade was purple, and in a frost finish. Didn’t look good on me. I bought it because it looked so good on the model on the magazine. LOL.

I have no idea what my very first lipstick was, but I know my first high end lipsticks were Cosmo and Twig, by MAC.

I can’t remember, but I think it could be a peachy color from ZA…?
It’s really hard to think back but I’m sure it’s a peachy color fromone of the asia drug store brands.

oh my. I remember being about 8 yrs old and having this horrible dry red matte lipstick that I snuck to school. I have no idea what brand. My mom took it away from me when she found out I took it out of the house!

The first brand I remember owning would probably be Revlon in Toast of New York and Coffee Bean and Bonne Bell lipliner in Chutney. It was ’92 – brown lips and 90210!!

My first lipstick was and still is my all time favorite: Revlon Colorburst “Soft Rose” Used lipstick for the first time 1 year ago.

Still have it!! L’oreal Colour Riche in Rose Potpourri. It works surprisingly well for my inexperienced eyes. I think Mom must have helped me a lot, or I would have gone with something crazy and bright pink!

Nicki Minaj Pink Friday from Mac! It wasn’t a great color for me if I applied it alone because I looked too crazy (lol). I used Mac Chestnut lipliner with a clear gloss to darken it or I used Viva Glam VI to layer on top. I later found out that she uses Pink Nouveau which is a much better but still crazy color on me. I wouldn’t have gone through the trouble of hunting down the lipstick last December if I had known lol.

I can’t remember the official first lipstick, but I know I went through several tubes of Clinique’s A Different Grape in middle school. I also used a potted gloss of Tenderheart by Clinique a lot. I don’t think they make that one anymore, but A Different Grape is still around and I still like it! Haven’t worn it in ages, but this post may have just inspired me. πŸ™‚

When I was a teen, my first lipstick was Grape freeze from Avon, and my first lip gloss I wasn’t even a teen yet. Maybelline kissing slicks, in bubble gum. how I miss it.

My first lipstick was Christian Dior Mohair. I remember going back many times to swatch it before taking the plunge on the 15$ tube and that back in ’85, loved it.

My first MAC lipstick was Sweetie but my first lipstick ever was Estee Lauder Vinyl Voltage and I absolutely loved it, sadly it’s discontinued πŸ™

I don’t really recall my first lipstick purchase for sure – I mostly used lipglosses when I started – but I think it was Maybelline Color Sensational in Pink Please. My first lipgloss was also from Maybelline: it was a red Juicylicious gloss. My first MAC lipstick was Viva Glam GAGA 1.

MAC Honeylove that I purchased at a MAC counter in the Sydney airport when I was on vacation. I still remember the lipstick display, the first whiff I ever got of a MAC lipstick, and buying it!

Jane Rosy Outlook. I don’t think they make Jane cosmetics anymore, but it was a favorite brand of mine in middle school because the colors were fun and it was easily accessible at the drug store. Rosy Outlook was a brownish red and it’s still my favorite lipstick. I wish I could find a suitable dupe; I’ve been on the hunt for years to no avail. D:

My first /real/ lipstick was Hot Gossip by MAC. I’ve had other lipsticks but this is the first one that didn’t come in some 20 dollar collection of a million lipsticks. I love Hot Gossip. I bought Brave and I love that as well.

L’oreal Nature’s Blush – it was a dark “natural” color, but hey it was the 90’s. It still looks good now in the fall…. I think haha

I know it was L’Oreal and it was brown with lots of glittery gold specks but cannot remember the name or line.
