Lipsticks That I Own

Gio asked some time last week how many lipsticks do I/you own in her blog.

I got curious and I gathered all the lipsticks I have with me here in the UK, and photographed them collectively.

So how many do I have/own?

38!!!





Then after I took the photos, I realised that I had a GWP from Estee Lauder which was stashed away, so that makes 39!

And of all that, I have used about 20 of them, some only once, and some only swatched for photos. See below.




Happy Friday!

Wow, that's quite a lot! Are the unused ones the ones that are still in their packaging/boxes? XD

LauraLeia, the last photo shows those that have been used or just swatched.

Most of the time I would keep used/unused in their original boxes. But some, of course I have thrown away the boxes. Some of the lipsticks came unboxed, as in those that came in gift sets, or drugstore lipsticks are unboxed, like the Sleek and Rimmel ones.

Hi Voodoo Blonde,

Thank you. What color is your NYX round lipstick? I read they are very good but I haven't tried mine.

Glad you enjoy reading my blog. :)

Thanks, Anonymous!

Vonvon said...

Thank you, JC! No, don't be afraid. It would be interesting to see how many you have. :D

I did a tag about lipstick on my blog a while ago... but I hadn't the guts to count them all ^^;;;

Vonvon said...

I was shocked at the number I have too, Misato-San. But good thing will come out of it, you know? ;)

At least, now I have all my lipsticks in a basket and I feel like I want to use a different one everyday. So it's good especially to the neglected ones.

Misato-san said...

I store them in some Ikea boxes, divided by type of shade, because having all reds in a box, all fuchsias and pink in another and stuff like that is really helping me to find them and using them without forgetting I own them ^^

please consider to do this meme: http://nana-komatsu7.livejournal.com/194449.html
I will be glad to read your thoughts (lipstick addict here :D)

Vonvon said...

Great idea, Misato-San. I also store in box/basket, as in the photo. But previously there were everywhere, in every drawers, etc...that's how disorganized I was. But I find that after I grouped them all in the basket, I tend to use different ones more often. :)

Ok, I will do the tag. It's interesting. And my latest lipstick haul is Rimmel Kate #1, the deep red one. So into red lippies....catching up with the hype of the Holidays.;)
