I am ADDICTED to LIP GLOSS - MAC, Sephora, Revlon, Smashbox - You Name It!

Is there a 12-step group for this addiction?

If so, sign me up for a charter membership!

Now, one would think that this Single Nester needs so much lip gloss because it is constantly getting kissed off my lips. But, no such luck!

It is just that I am addicted to love lip gloss.

Here is the stash.I used two of these organizers to corral them.Here are my lip glosses with the names provided for my favorites.






And here they are. All secure and happy and ready to gloss up my lips.So which church basement are we meeting so I can get over this addiction?

What's your go-to lip gloss?

Who would have thought that there is a video about lip gloss love! Enjoy!

I only have one... Burt's Bees Original Chap Stick. As for addictions, I'm not one to throw stones, I seem to like kitchen toys myself:@)

Angie said...

I LOVE lipgloss, but hate the ones that are sticky. My favorites: Benetint Lip Balm from Benefits, and any of the Philosophy Lip Glosses.

I just got started on Burt Bees lip colours too, and I bought one to enjoy. I may go back for a second. Otherwise, chapstick.

Hubby actually HATES when there's anything at all on my lips, so I don't wear much at all.

Maybe there will be more posts with makeup Tips? Application of makeup, colour choices, style choice, brand choice, or just where to go to get more help would be AWESOME!

Lisa said...

OMG! And I thought I was bad! Your collection is crazy!

I'm addicted to Banana Boat chapstick for under my lip gloss. I can't ever go without it. I keep about 6 sticks in different places around the house and work and then I keep an extra stash of about 10 when I run out : )

I just counted and I have 6 lip glosses in my purse now too!

Brandy @ The Moody Fashionista said...

Ohhh I think I've finally met my match with the lip gloss addiction. Just know you are in good company :)

Lisalulu said...

wowie-zowie.... you are shamefull!! haha I wish I could FIND smashbox in my little poo-dunk neighborhood!! I can only get them on trips to seattle. I'm stuck licking burts bees!! but they are ok

Blondie's Journal said...

Well, this is a real shocker! You are definitely a lip gloss fiend! Do you ever run out of a tube? I have more lipsticks than glosses because they stay on longer, but you have really outdone me!! Nice collection! ;-D

XO,
Jane

michelle said...

You weren't kidding girl!! ;) I love your colors! I have never tried Smash Box before, I should give that a try. I love Bare Escentuals as well. I like lip gloss a bit better than lip stick, it stays on longer for me.

I hope you are doing well my friend!
Hugs!

Janet said...

My kinda gal!

I'm IN LOVE with MAC Lustreglass :)

Awesome job organizing your obsession! ;-)

At least you have your "huge" stash organized. LOL!!! I only have one that I like --Liplicious "Caramel Latte" from Bath & Body Works. Really does taste like a coffee caramel latte & feels very good on my lips. What I use most is just chapstick over my lipstick.

Ellen said...

I stopped buying lip gloss and lip stick. No matter what shade I bought, it looked terrible on me. So I just stick with Carmex - no color, eucalyptus scent, but I always like the color.

Jenny S said...

Have you tried Revlon colorstay mineral lipgloss? It stays glossy and colorful all flipping day if you don't eat something greasy! It is AWESOME!!

Jenny said...

I am a failure in this category. I have two. Both are the same. Black honey near lipstick. Sad, but true. I shall take pleasure in you painting your lips vicariously with your cool stash of colors!

Crystal Brown said...

Wow, That's a lot of lip gloss! I wish I had one... I use chapstick. I haven't ever found any that I liked.

Meg said...

Dude, that's a lot of lip gloss! You must look pretty all the time. I have a few lip glosses, but I find my kids eating them so I've stopped buying them! Ha! Someday...right now I like to use SoftLips in their tinted colors. I hide them from the kids...and then feed them real food. :)

I can totally relate except that I am a nail polish whore. I love the stuff.

I love lip gloss....it's all I wear! Great idea! I don't have as many as you though! Fun post! ♥

Kim said...

Did you know you should only keep lipgloss for 6 months?

After that too many bacteria have entered the container and it should be tosse.

There is NO way you can use all of those in 6 months. You only have 2 lips!

I have never seen so many lipglosses in one place before when they were not for sale!

Faith, Trust, and a Little Pixie Dust said...

Wow, I thought I had it bad! Thanks for making me smile. :D

Warmly, Michelle

Marnie said...

Wow, that is the mother load! I love it! Embrace it! LOL
I've worked as a makeup artist for over 20 years and know exactly where you're coming from. My absolute favorite is MAC Prrr. My blog is a mixed bag of things from home renos to recipes, but I'm just about to start adding make-up brwakdowns and beauty tutorials. I'd love it if you would drop by. Is that enabling your addiction?

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

I get a little bit giddy at the sight of so many lip glosses. Love me some lipgloss...I like neutral/pinkish tones. :)

Kathy said...

Just stopping by from Java's blog hop!
Great post! Of course, I LOVE lip gloss. My current favorite is Dark Kiss from Bath & Body Works.

April said...

Holy cow! I thought I was addicted to lip gloss! Of course before I had kids my stash probably looked like that...Sophie thinks my makeup is hers...and she can find it no matter where I hide it...so yep a lot of it has ended up a having to get thrown away...especially after she completely covered her face in a mixture of it. Great job organizing! Thanks for linking up!

Shauntel said...

I saw your links in a ton of linky parties and had to know! I am not a lip gloss fan. Call me Napolean, but I love chapstick. I love any with peppermint. It has a great sensation on my lips.

Oh! Oyster girl. Cannot imagine summer without it. Count me in the support group... Or enablers anonymouse...

Posti4 said...

ohh no! I was sure my 11 year old would out grow the lip gloss obsession. It never occured to me she could be an addict.
Truly enjoyed the post

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Wow! I thought I was bad...I'm not even close to having as many as you!!! I'm so addicted though that I'm putting lip gloss on as I'm hiking! I can't stand to be without it! I've been addicted to it for decades! I remember running a half marathon in the 80s and pulling out my lip gloss as I was running!!

I'm a little envious of your collection!

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hello my friend...

I was wondering if you were going to show us all of your lip gloss after reading your lipstick organization post! Hehe! OMG...you doooo have a collection going there, my friend! Sooo many pretty colors too! Thanks for sharing this fun post with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party this week!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design

Stacy said...

DD also has lots of lip gloss. I really like the way you organized it! It looks perfect!

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

I look forward to your fun posts every week at Fancy This Fridays!! Thanks so much for sharing! :) Way to organize those lip glosses!!! I'm more of a plain chapstick girl most of the time... Otherwise I like a slightly tinted pink color. :)
