Lip-a-holics Anonymous: How many lip products do you carry in your makeup bag?!

Hello darlings!


Welcome to another edition of Lip-a-holics Anonymous where I blog about a serious life obsession called lip products! An idea came to me the other day when I was organizing my makeup bag. I was having difficulty closing my makeup bag because it was overflowing with makeup stuff. I then realized that I had way too many lip products in there!

So, I want to ask everyone this question: How many lip products do you carry in your makeup bag?

When I counted the lip products that I carry in my makeup bag, I can honestly say that I carry more than the average person. Well, being a beauty addict like myself, is probably a good enough excuse. Haha.

You see, I have a variety of lip products that I carry around with me everyday. I really don’t know how to justify this but I guess, it has really become a bad habit of mine to just cramp in as many lip products as I can in my makeup bag. I always think that I might need a specific lipstick for later.


I currently have the following lip products in my makeup bag: MAC Lipstick in Plumful, 2 Shut Up and Kiss Me Moisturizing Lippies from Happy Skin (which I am currently loving, btw!), 2 lip tints from Etude House and a light gloss from Victoria’s Secret.


As if those 6 lip products were not enough, I also carry around a lemon flavored lip balm by Crazy Rumors and my beloved Korres Lip Butter in Quince.

I heard a beauty expert say once that you only really need 1 lipstick in your makeup bag with a color that can be used both in the day and at night. Hmmmm. If this should really be the case, then I probably need some serious therapy! Haha.

So, how many lip products do you carry on your makeup bag? Please comment below and let me know if I am the only crazy person here who would carry 8 lip products everyday!

    I always use a different lipstick shade from day to day and I’ve had around 9 lipsticks in my bag? Is that bad?! Nope!😁
    Great post! Xxx

    Haha, I have the same problem with my purse! Currently, I have 4 Lipsmackers, 4 lipsticks & 2 glosses lol. I have a bag that looks like Mary Poppins’! But they’re ALL my favorites and I need them ALL in there! 😛

    Great post! Today I was carrying 3 but on the regular, 2 (lip balm + lipstick of the day). I am a serious OC klutz so I organize my makeup kit/bag every single night before I do my nighttime skin care. Hahaha

      Thanks! I organize my makeup kit on a weekly basis (usually on Sunday night). However, I find myself adding a few lip products into my kit without replacing the other stuff. Hence, the overflowing of lip products! 🙂

    I average around 5 or 6 but it certainly depends on how long it’s been since I’ve last purged my purse of all it’s contents!

    It’s so easy to throw something in there and then forget about it!! Since I’ve been doing my lip challenge to make myself wear a product every day, I think I pulled out like six things yesterday haha. Normally I just have lip balm in the purse but I always carry multiples of those too 🙂

      Hello! I organize my makeup kit every Sunday and I only throw in 2 lip products at most with the mindset that these will be the lip products that I’ll be working with for the week. But, throughout the week, I find myself throwing in a few more items without replacing the others! Haha. This is definitely a serious problem! But, I’m glad I’m not alone though! 🙂

    haha!! I loved this post. So I counted and in my makeup drawer I have close to two dozen different colors of lip products. But in my purse, that goes everywhere with me, I only have 6. Not quite your 8, but you are certainly not the only one to carry a lot hehe. I host Monday Morning MakeUp Madness party, that I would LOVE for you to link this to.

    I carry a small cosmetic bag in my purse SPECIFICALLY for lip products. It contains 7 lipsticks, 4 glosses, a lip balm, and a cream lip pot that can double as cheek color. And a compact mirror. And that doesn’t even come close to the number of lip products that are at home….

    I have have a separate container of lip products in my bathroom that is overflowing, and have 4 in my purse! 🙂 Great post & new follower from the Beauty & Fashion Blog Community on facebook!
