I tend to switch it up! I like something sheer and balmy for the day, and if I’m going somewhere in the evening I like to go for a more opaque and darker shade.

if I have evening plans, then I pack two lipsticks and switch colors after work. If it’s just a chill day and I’m going home or to the coffee shop to write after work, I only pack one color. It depends on my schedule.

Sometimes… if I feel like I need to keep the same color on for one reason or another (gotta have my red) I will religiously reapply at the first hint of it being messed up. If it was a random choice to wear a lip color I may change it or just not even bother to reapply later in the day.

It depends on the nature of my plans. If I’m spending the day in work-related activities and then going out at night, I’ll often change to something a little more dramatic for the evening. But other days I’ll just stick with the same colour no matter what.

Sometimes I’ll pack the same lip color for mid-day touchups, but usually I pack a more moisturizing, sheerer version that I can touch up without a mirror. I have a tone of tinted balms in various shades so I usually have one that’s a good match for whatever lipstick I’m wearing.

Sometimes I can’t decide what lip colour to wear with a look so I end up switching it up over the course of the day. Or another reason I will use a different lip colour is if I have to reapply on the go and it is easier to apply something sheer or more of a nude colour while out.

Yes, with the exception of .. if I can’t find current lipstick in my purse (because I left it on the kitchen counter) then I’ll apply what ever I can find at my desk .. lol Probably a lip gloss.


It depends. Some days I change more than once, just for fun. Other days I find I like the eyeshadow, blush and lipstick combo so much keep the same all day. Could be that some days I just can’t make my mind up 😀

I use the same color all day, unless I go out to something dressier in the evening. Then I change my clothes and all my makeup.

The only other time a change is if I was trying out a new lipstick, or trying out a new look, and I wasn’t liking it after a few hours.

I picked “other”. It depends on what kind of lip product I’m wearing that day. If I’m wearing a matte lipstick, or especially a liquid lipstick, I keep that one with me to touch up. If I’m wearing just gloss or an easy-to-remove lipstick, I’ll be much more likely to switch it up.

Typically the same. If there is a “special event”..(rare for me though), I may freshen up with something bolder or a lipstick vs gloss.I am not a big re-applier during daytime. So,I usually do a pencil and gloss as it is quicker for me to just smudge the gloss back on. I am a nurse and there is typically not time to even pee at work!

I tend to do two or so. I usually wear a bolder lip during the day, and when that rubs off or I’m tired of reapplying it, I’ll switch to a gloss.

I put on lip color in the morning, but usually by or before lunch, it is worn off. Sometimes, I will apply a different lipstick/gloss in my purse. Other times, I don’t apply anything again as I don’t always have time.

That’s me. I usually wear one color as I leave the house but once that wears out, I put on one of the other colors I keep at work. They’re sometimes similar but depending on my mood, I may put on something completely different.

I try, but most of the time I get frustrated with lipstick and wipe it off after a few hours. I get low blood sugar so I’m constantly snacking or drinking, and it’s a pain. I love lipstick but gloss is so much easier.

Nope – I always have three or so lip products with me, and I happen to be one of those strange people that loves reapplying lipstick, so it changes as often as my whim/mood does 🙂 Either that or it’ll be the more prosaic switch between something a little creamier and something a little balmier depending on how my lips are feeling.

I’ll wear the same lipstick all day and reapply as needed. But if I’m off for a meal or a night out later on I’ll usually change to something more dramatic

I’m usually testing lippies all the time so I’m stuck wearing a color for an entire day lol. Reasons why my posts can sometimes be out of order from my hauls. Rocking one lip color all day is a huge commitment lol
