Definitely reds! I don’t even wear them that often because of how high maintenance they can be, but I just absolutely CANNOT RESIST a good, deep, blue-based red!

I am definitely guilty of having too many oranges! But I honestly can’t resist. Although I’m quite fair skinned, bright oranges just give me such a fresh and youthful look. Definitely my favorite lip color! My favorites consist of MAC Sounds Like Noise, YSL Glossy Stain in Orange de Chine & Revlon Balm Stain in Rendezvous. I don’t think I’ll stop buying oranges anytime soon either! :p

Me too! I got waaaayy too many oranges & peaches, I don’t know why but I look bad in pinks but look great in oranges

Me too! Plus, I am also fair skinned. Isn’t Sounds Like Noise Wonderful? I went crazy getting lipsticks from the Mac All about Orange collection! 🙂 I have Sweet & Sour, Tart & Trendy, Sushi Kiss, Flaming, and am waiting for Razzlerdazzler to arrive. Also love Rendezvous from Revlon, Palm Beach by Laura Mercier, and Muse by Hourglass. Oh – and Coralberry and Kiss Me Coral from Revlon!

Sounds Like Noise is heaven sent. When it was first released I was absolutely ecstatic to finally find an orange with barely any red tones to it! An orange that was clearly pure orange!

reds for sure. i have quite a lot, garconne is the last one i bought, or was it the GA the red, it takes a lot now for a red lip color to impress me. seen too many of them.

i have an idea for a question, “what type of product or even shade of product that you used to buy but refuse to do so now”. eg. i refuse to buy any sort of lipgloss now.

Definitely nude colors in all finishes from practically every brand! I don’t mind because all of them get plenty of usage since I rarely wear any bright or dark colors.

Ha! good try Christine…..

Ladies, it’s a trick question. There’s no such thing as “too many”. :-p

Well played Christine. Well played.

I have sooooooo many fuchsia and hot pink lipsticks! I don’t know why… I just can’t say “no!” And as much as I argue with my boyfriend about it, they really are all the same colour!

Medium plummy shades. MAC plumful, UD rapture, lipstickqueen jean queen, a couple nyx and revlon lipsticks, several glosses too, I know a stila one that is a perfect match.

Definitely pinky nudes! Lipsticks are my weakness and while I was organizing them just earlier today, I had like 20 shades of it.. Sigh

I’d say pinks, in all shades! I also have a LOT of brights, and a dearth of nudes. I really want more nude lipsticks, but I find it much harder to pick flattering nudes. Brights are so much easier to predict!

Pinks without a doubt, from medium to deep shades of pink, I just really can´t resist them and I´m still looking for my perfect medium deep pink the same way some people look for a perfect red lol . I definitely need to expand my collection in other directions though, I only have two corals and only one red, need more of theses shades, I might have like 30 pinks though 😛 .

I feel your pain: I definitely own one too many pinks. I am just naturally drawn to them, which is crazy because I tend to reach for the same two or three when I want to rock pink (my Holy Grail being MAC Girl About Town…GORGEOUS!!!). I had to put myself on a no-buy for pinks because I own so many shades and variations. Since I started my no-buy, I have to get my fix by looking at swatches of pinks online. Lol

It’s red for me also, I have MAC Ruby Woo, Nars Red Lizard, OCC NSFW, Tarte Fiery, NYX Plush red & MAC Dazzle glass in Love Alert. After that it’s nudes.
