I´m sure I have over a hundred, probably closer to 150, the majority from MAC, others from Bobbi Brown, Nars, Smashbox, Clinique, Chanel and Dior.
I could not live without lipgloss!

I’m not big on putting stuff on my lips. They’re very pigmented anyway so most of the time I can get away with lip balm, especially the medicated/menthol stuff that reall brings out the colour of them. I’ve got a few Lancome Juicy Tubes, a couple of Mac glosses and about 50 different balms! My favourites are Body Shops Brazil nut butter and Palmer’s mint and dark chocolate!

You are both lucky and unlucky! I say this only because I love wearing different colors, but I get so frustrated when a sheer lipstick does nothing for me, and yet looks so utterly fab on someone with less pigmented lips!

Palmers are great!

I used to have a couple – as I’m much more into lipstick but gloss seems a bit more summery somehow so I’ll probably be tempted to buy a few more 🙂

I actually got addicted to lipglosses as late as this christmas! My friend gave me a holiday set of 4 lancôme juicy tubes, which I totally love. That set actually trippled my collection; I had an old juicy tube and a stila lip glaze. Now I have also bought a cute little tube of Kanebo Lavschuka gloss and a lancôme LUCI gloss. That makes 8. The first of many to come, is my guess.

My watching-list on ebay currently has a ton of dazzleglasses and a tendertone in it… I am seriously lemming Money Honey, Miss Fizz and Funtabulous dazzleglasses. And I pretty much need them too 😉 what makeup addict only has 8 glosses?

Like you, Kirsty, I have quite pigmented lips so clear shiny glosses and heavily pigmented ones are my favourites, not so much the ones inbetween.

Not a big gloss fan – I have about five or six, which I use rarely or over matte lipstick. I am more a lip balm fan, as I hate the sticky nature of most lip glosses. I like Dior’s Ultra Gloss in Linen Beige and Denim Pink but I don’t use them every day.

I exfoliate with an olive oil/sugar mixture and then apply a thick balm (something from TBS or MAC TLC) for a few minutes, then wipe off before applying a matte lipstick. Lips should never be dry before applying a matte lipstick IMO – there should be a very thin layer of balm (not gloss or Vaseline, because then the lipstick would just slide off!) on the lips.

I am a huge lip gloss/lipstick/lip balm fan, even if I don’t have a big collection. I think I have two Lancome’s Juicy Tubes, one L’Oreal’s Glam Shine (one of my favourites) and two ‘Les Accords Naturels’ lipsticks (I am really into nude colours at the moment), a MAC Lip Varnish, a Dior ‘Diorific’ scarlet lipstick, two Rimmel lipglosses and a lipstick, two Chanel’s ‘Glossimer’ glosses (I love them!) and several lip balms I keep in my bags and on my bedside table.

I used to be a big Juiy Tubes fan, but now I realize they’re way too sticky for me 🙁 Chanel ‘Glossimers’ are not so sticky and are equally gorgeous!

about 20….but going to MAC today for the Naughty Nauticals event, so probably will be 25 by tomorrow……….someone take my credit card away!!

Four! I used to be addicted to lipgloss, but now I’m leaning towards moisturizing lipsticks (Slimshines). That, and I don’t like keeping any gloss beyond 2 years (they might’ve already expired by then).

hummm…never thought of it, maybe 20-25 glosses and about 30 lipstick. My glosses are from MAC, Lancome, Clinique and some drugstore brands like NYX.

I have 23, but some of them are tiny square pans that are included in a larger set. Several are junk glosses that are useless as far as color goes. I probably only have about 6 nice full-sized ones and 6 small pans in a Sephora palette that I use regularly.

I counted. 36. 😀 Almost as big an amount on my shopping list, tho! This week I got MAC Lustreglass in Ensign and Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Reflect in Coral Lame. 😀

10 of the holiday mini glosses, 1 regular gloss, and 1 from Oscar De La Renta I got with a purfume I bought… I also have 5 lipsticks

Too many to count!!! Some of my favs are prr from MAC, Lip fusion lip plumper- love this stuff, def. a must have, and vanilla frosting lipsmakers gloss- I’m 25 and still can’t stop using this stuff.

17 Lipglosses [All MAC except for 4, which are Bare Escentuals Buxom Lip Glosses]
11 Lipsticks [All MAC]

8? sounds I am quite reasonable about lip product. these 8 include one set of lancome juicetub (3), and another set of Chanel (3). I bought two MAC lipglosses recently. but I prefer to use lipstick rather than lipgloss.

Probably about 10… Pink Poodle, Lychee Luxe, Enchantress, She-Gold, Rags to Riches, Sugarrimmed, Hey Sailor, Style Minx, Starlet Kiss… Can’t think of any more.

None by MAC unfortunately. One is Fusion Beauty’s Lip Fusion in Blush and the other Bourjois’ 3D Effect Lipgloss in Rose Synthetic.

What is a lovely, not too out there but noticeable pink MAC gloss that you’d recommend to a girl with pale, cool-toned skin?

Oh wow what a question lol I maybe started wearing lip balms in elementary school and now I’m in 11th grade I’ve lost track of how many I have but I will estimate a about 50 (lip balms, glosses and lipsticks) I’ve been “craving” lipsticks a lot lately I find it weird. How many do you have Christine?

I know I have over way over 100, but the exact number I don’t know…actually I’m a bit afraid to count.

I have forty lipsticks and thirty-five lipglasses, only about a third of which are MAC. I use about 3-5 lipglasses a year though, and i like having a variety to choose from.

My favorites are the Beauty Rush by Victoria’s Secret. I have about 15of those because our store had them on sale for $2 each.
