Pretty much all jumbled up in a plastic storage drawer with my lip glosses. Although it feels like I own too many already, I don’t have enough to organize in any special way. BTW, I started following your blog about 1-2 months ago and I love it! You do such a great job and it’s so nice to finally have an idea of what is coming out and what to look forward to. Thank you!

I don’t have much lip stuff in general, so I just chuck it all into a little tray. If I had more I’d probably have to get lots of trays, or maybe a tray with compartment.

I don’t have many lipsticks and all but 2 of them are MAC. I just have them laying in a drawer in no particular order.

Mines all jumbled but recently I’ve put all my “summer” lipsticks and glosses on the counter so there’s less hunting. Leaving all the vamps and reds in my drawer for fall and winter.

well i have not very many lipsticks so they’re just in a bowl in my bathroom…. i remember the shade names seeiing as they’re only a few!

Hi Christine,
I have so few lipsticks at the moment that no organization is needed yet, but I’m working on changing that =P. My lipsticks just stand upside down in a small box so their names are visible.

I’d like to ask you a question if it’s ok.
Am I mistaken or Benefit’s “Ms. Behavin'” lipstick looks like a more sheer version of Mac’s “Kittenish” from the Felines collection; which in turn looks like a less-red version of Mac’s Venomous Villains: Malificent’s “Dark Deed”?

by brand, then by color, then by level of coverage (sheer to full). i suppose i should just mix them all together and ignore the brand thing… but it just kills me to combine mac with aveda with chanel with dior with… lol 😛

I don’t, they’re a mess. I usually have to dig around in my bag for them or I just pick one at random to put on.

i dont have that many lipsticks. and they are all mac. i kinda remember the shades of the names. 🙂 simple! its even better when it comes in limited edition packaging.


When do we get to see the other 2 villain looks? From Maleficent and Facilier?
I’m dyyyyying to see it LOL

I also organize mine by brand (unlike my eyeshadows that I do by color, each color has a drawer). On my favorites I take a sharpie and write the name on the bottom of it, that way I can easily reach for my favs without having to get my glasses. It’s a life saver on these 48 year old eyes! LOL

By brand. I separate cools from warms with neutrals in the middle and line them up from light to dark. Just OCD that way I guess!

I must have a brain like yours cause i can remember all lipsticks name i own/ i see. This is kinda funny but we learn more about what we love!

I have a box of high end and a box of drugstore lipsticks, plus a box of Mac lipsticks + lipglosses together, and then also I have the long lasting lipcolours together in a drawer. I need a new box though as my Mac box is overflowing.
