Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I also keep mine in a drawer in a smaller box, standing up. Some of mine don’t have the shade readily visible, so I take a little circle of cardstock (from using a hole punch), color it in with the lipstick, attach it to the top of the case with a dot of nail polish top coat, then cover it with the top coat to seal it in. If they came in a box with the shade printed on it, I holepunch a circle out of that, even easier. I haven’t tried this with my MAC lipsticks due to the rounded caps, and I have a few more on the way: I suppose I could do this procedure on the flat end of the tube, but then they wouldn’t stand up as nicely.

I have a handful on rotation in my purse of mainly balms and then 1 gloss and 1 lipstick. The rest fit into my raised acrylic lipstick organizers that have 15 slots – I have 3 of them. On the furthest left I have my liners (I put as many as possible in one of the slots), lip balms, lip treatments, and a few liquid lipsticks organized by brand. In the middle I have glosses organized by brand/formula. The right one is for my bullet lipsticks organized by brand/formula. I keep all like size packaging together so the tallest are in back and shortest in front and my shades of each brand are organized by color as well (ie: all pinks together and all reds together). I used to throw all my lip products in a plastic container with a pull out drawer, but I’ve kept a smaller collection now for a few years and I like how easy it is to see the colors and pick one versus digging through a bunch and getting frustrated.

Most are in a high lipstick tower that turns. A bunch of others are in wider rectangular office drawer storage bins standing upside down so that I can easily read the labels, same as I do in the lipstick tower. A few are also in my purse.

I have to work on my organization of my lipsticks, they are all in one bin right now. Everything else is organized. When my basement cleanup is finished (and it’s going gangbusters) I will tackle my lippies.

I have very little storage space so except for the ones in current rotation that I keep on my vanity the rest are organized in ziploc bags by brand in two large drawers of a short iris tower. I’ve been thinking about organizing by color instead but haven’t tried it yet.
