I do it more often than not, actually. Although I own well over 200 shades, and rarely wear it, I still get bored with what I have, LOL. I also frequently layer nail polish.

I do this a lot actually! I like glosses but I guess I really do prefer lipsticks. On the other hand, I’m okay with matte lipsticks but really prefer a slight shine. Ergo, layering lipsticks is the answer to all my problems. 😛

Yep!!! I love layering bright orange lipsticks or glosses over bright pink ones. It makes a really “juicy” colour. Lol. Probably not the best description, but I know what I mean. 🙂

All the time! Usually to “tweak” a particularly dark or bright colour to match a look or an outfit. I especially love the combination of Shu Uemura RD198 under Utowa Rose 55.

Yup! I do that with Dior Incognito because I think I’m just a tad too dark to pull it off as a pretty nude (I’m still gutted). I love it on top of Chanel Rouge Coco Mademoiselle though! The creamy texture compensates for the drier Chanel one as well.

I have! My favourite combination is Nars Heat Wave, with Dior Addict in Perfecto on top. It turns the most gorgeous shade of blood red.

I got MAC Impassioned and Morange from B2M at the same time. They’re both a little too much for me to wear to the office, but blended together they look more subdued.

Mac High Tea is my go-to “top coat” when I use a matte finish or long-wearing lipstick. I hate the dry feel of them and also prefer a bit of shine, so its perfect. Unlike glosses, it can wear off without taking all the color with it.

Never. I use only one lipstick at a time. I don’t use a gloss over my makeup either. I am very finicky about it !

Frequently. One of my current faves is MAC Violetta under Pink Popcorn. Pink Popcorn mellows out the purpleness of Violetta to make the perfect (for me) pinkish violet.

Yes! Many times. I have layered Mac Creme Cup + any bright pink or coral shade to tone it down, like Impassioned, Bobbi’s Neon Pink, Crosswires, On Hold, etc.

Yes! I think most recently it was MAC Creme de Nude and Impassioned. I also tried it with Creme de Nude and Vegas Volt, I liked both!

Pretty regularly.
Today: MAC Capricious + Venus
I also like MAC Ravishing + Cut a Caper, or Vegas Volt + Ravishing.
I layer lipsticks and/or glosses to get just the right texture and color I’m going for.
