HOW MANY LIPSTICKS DO YOU HAVE?

I am just so curious because I am such a lipstick junkie, it's crazy. I am just starting to build my makeup collection. I started just this May only. I seem to gravitate towards lipsticks the most. And I have bought 21 lippies from then. Not to mention the two incoming MAC that I ordered which should be on their way here. So i have 23 so far. lol. Here is the breakdown: 13 MAC 5 Chanel 3 YSL 2 Givenchy What's yours, ladies? I know mine does not yet match your collection yet. I just wanna know the "normal" number of lipsticks before I go crazy buying all of em. lol. :smileyhappy:

I love lipsticks, glosses and stains because my lips are my best feature.  But because of my coloring (auburn hair and yellow skin tone), I don't care for those with pink undertones.  This limits the amount of lipsticks to choose from.  This Spring I tossed at least 20 lipsticks, stains and glosses that I had purchased, thought I would like, but didn't.  All of them were dept. store brand that I should have returned.  Since shopping at Sephora, I don't make poor color choice purchases anymore and am slowly building up a collection of faves.  I have some darker shades that I wear more in the Fall/Winter.  I probably have 20 in all with about half of them being lipsticks. My favorites are Smashbox Be Legendary in Chai and Smashbox Limitless Longwearing Lipgloss in Eternity.  Sometimes I wear them alone depending on the look I want to achieve: matte for work, glossy for fun in the sun, or I wear them together for an intense dramatic look.s1387208-main-hero.jpgs1157247-main-hero.jpg

Don't feel bad.  Lipstick is not my favorite cosmetic, though I love it, and I have nearly two hundred.  What's worse?  I tend to use the same one every day!

Re: HOW MANY LIPSTICKS DO YOU HAVE?

Definately a lip gloss junkie so I think about 50 lip glosses and aout 30 lipsticks and about 30 or so chapstick type products so way more than I need or can even use but i'm the type of person I find something I like and buy like 7 backups of the same thing . Only to have the next best thing to me pop us and disgard the last favorite and its 7 backups. This ensures I have way more then I need and probably ever use. Oh well .... I know I have a problem and I just can't stop.

I have too many to count.. :/ I think that's when you have a real problem. I have two drawers full of lip products ranging from lipsticks to lipglosses, stains, etc. And then I have some cups filled with Stila glosses and another one for my Tarte lip stains *Sigh* and I gave my cousin a big huge gallon bag full of lip products I don't wear

I have 6 lipsticks, 4 lipglosses, and 4 lipstains. I actually just threw out a gallon sized bag full of lipglosses, lipliners, lipstick, lip gloss, and lip stains. Late spring cleaning, I guess, lol.

Re: HOW MANY LIPSTICKS DO YOU HAVE?

I have 42 lipsticks, although they are only maybe 1/2 mid to high end and the rest drugstore with a couple deluxe samples. I have a pretty large collection because when Revlon lipsticks go on sale I like to purchase colors I don't normally choose to help expand my color collection and discover more shades that would look good. Plus Revlon makes some pretty decent quality lipsticks. I only have a few lipglosses since I'm much more a lipstick girl now, when I was younger I had about 20 glosses or so at a time

I also have way to many chap sticks so I am using up those and throwing away all the really old ones. When I have finished up about two I will let myself buy some sort of new lip thingy :smileyhappy:.

Lip stuff is what I pick up the most. I have about 25 lipsticks and lip glosses.

Re: HOW MANY LIPSTICKS DO YOU HAVE?

I'm still building my collection so I only have 8 lipsticks.  I have 19 lip glosses though.

 

Lip stuff is always what i'm most interested in buying.  My lips are my best feature and I like to highlight them accordingly.

cool. maybe i'll try to limit my lipstick obsession to about 50. getting addicted with only high end lipsticks can be so expensive though. lol.

 

i have no issues with drugstore brands. but when i started collecting makeup this May, I decided to only buy mid-range to high end brands. poor bank account. :smileysad: lol.is this normal too? lol.

Re: HOW MANY LIPSTICKS DO YOU HAVE?

I think it's perfectly acceptable to have around 40 lipsticks before you just have too many!! I have around 35 lipsticks. I'm not a gloss person so i have like maybe 5 that qualify as glosses. The others are all lipsticks I purchased from Sephora. I don't buy lipsticks unless i know i will wear it on a regular basis. All the ones i have i wear often. Even if it's just mixing two together to get a lighter or darker shade!

Re: HOW MANY LIPSTICKS DO YOU HAVE?

Not that many... just recently discovered that I can actually wear lipstick!! I used some terrible quality lipsticks when I first started experimenting with makeup, which looked awful on my lips and led me to believe it just wasn't a product that worked for me. Little did I know I just needed to find some hydrating, good quality lipsticks! I'm still afraid of intense, opaque shades- baby steps, right?

 

I have 3 Too Faced La Creme (that number will probably go up), and 5 Korres Mango Butter Lipsticks. Other than that, I have.... oh heck. This would be easier with a picture. Or two. All the ones on the top I'm pretty sure count as lipstick. The bottom picture, not so sure :smileyhappy: This number will be going up soon, got my eye on some NARS lipsticks :smileyvery-happy:

What brand is the pencil at the bottom right?  You have it in four shades.

It's actually two different products- the three on the left are Sephora's Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencils, and on the right is Mirenesse Glossy Kiss, which came in my Birchbox.

Re: HOW MANY LIPSTICKS DO YOU HAVE?

I think I have 50 approx.  Much more if you include gloss, stain, and tinted balms.  75-100 all together.  I have a wide variety ranging from drug store bought to luxury.  I have no real attachment to any of them.  Meaning I haven't found the perfect lipstick yet, but I am always searching.  I find that I am constantly searching for the perfect mascara, blush and lipstick. But honestly I have more eye shadow and as much mascara as I do lip stick!

@CzaCee- No I probably will never wear all of them I have YSL lipsticks and glosses and their my favorites.

Re: HOW MANY LIPSTICKS DO YOU HAVE?

Hi CraCee, I probaby have around 75-100 that I've collected in all my years as a makeup artist.  I mostly only use them on clients when I freelance now, but it is nice to know if I'm looking for a particular shade, I probably have it.  It doesn't quite stop me from buying new ones though.  :smileyhappy: -Laura
