How many lipsticks...?

How many tubes of lipstick can one woman own? Is it possible to have to many? I bought a couple tubes last night and I feel an obsession coming on...

I've been thinking lately that one can never have too much of ANY makeup & have been feeling an obsession coming on. I welcome it with open arms!
No such thing as "too much" when it comes to how much makeup/lipstick one owns. I have dozens of lipsticks...and they all have different purposes.
i refuse to answer this question on the grounds that it might tend to incriminate me!

lol rou!!

I tend to shy away from the pinks. I asked hubby about it and his thoughts were "what's wrong with a subtle enchancement? why do you have to go all out?" I wonder what he thinks about the red lipstick I bought yesterday. I love it so I haven't felt the need to ask. As long as I feel pretty, right? So yeah, I wonder why I shy away from the pinks...they look pretty on other people....

I'm a lipstick fanatic. The only problem is.... I have to have two of every color instead of just one. One for my vanity and one for my purse.

In fact, on my stocking stuffer wish list to hubby & son, I hinted at lipstick, lip stain or tinted lip balm so long as it's not brush on, solid powder blush & eyeshadow, & nail polish with neutral, nude or natural wording. That should be a whole heckuva lot easier for them versus getting specific with warm versus cool, brands, matte versus frosted...


OMG! You trust your men-folk to pick out makeup for you?!?!?

Drew would be allowed to buy a gift card for MAC or Sephora, but that's as close as he'd get to buying makeup for me!

I would let him buy makeup any time, though he usually does gift cards, as he knows how much I like to play and try on.

He's pretty good at fragrances too. He's got a killer sense of smell!

i wear gorgeous fragrances (YSL Nu last night), but they have no effect on him... *sigh*

Guess I'm in the minority here - I have just one lipstick, which I wear with everything, day or night, plus one lipgloss, to be worn at night over my one lipstick.
Some of that extends to rest of my makeup too - one blush, one foundation, one eye pencil. I do have three shades of eyeshadow though - one to be used as a highligher at night, one basic warm-medium neutral, and one dark violet to smudge the outer part of my eye pencil liner. My whole gig fits into one little bag, along with travel sizes of some skincare. Grab 'n' go! I'm at the point where I'd rather have just one of everything in a decent workable color and it be of higher quality than a bunch of cheap makeup where the colors "almost" work but don't, really.

I just bought a new lipstick, from Neutrogena. It's "Sparkly Nude".

I thought
oooh, pretty, it looks to be peach. I don't have anything that color because everything in that scheme has always been too orange. What the hey, I'll give it a try.
There's barely any color, if any at all! Back to the store it goes!

And here I used a coupon on it I could have used on something of that brand that was worthy. sad3: The upside of this is, the coupon was for two items so I got the Lash Tint & tried it too once home. Though it is dark, there was ZERO clumping & it did not go on thick!

By the way, my son said I must remove the makeup idea from my wish list due to pretty much the same reasonings I gave. So it is done.

The Lash Tint is supposedly not even a mascara. It was recommended to me on this site by a couple people.

Here's the information from the back of the box:

Neutrogena
Clean Lash Tint

The ultra-clean and gentle way to darken lashes daily.

* Goes on clean without clumps or smudges for naturally dark lashes. Never heavy.
* Rinses cleanly without the mess of traditional mascaras.
* No makeup remover required.
* Water-based formula conditions lashes with botanicals, vitamins and proteins.
* Safe for contact wearers and sensitive eyes.
It's got the blessing of Acuvue Contact Lenses.

They have it at WalMart & Walgreen's, so they'll have it at CVS.

I wish we had a CVS too!

ETA: I'm using it on the upper lashes where they're heavier/thicker & the regular mascara on the bottom where they're lighter/thinner. It all works out.
