23 Lipsticks

in Beauty,Confessions

Last week I stopped off at Walgreens to get some envelopes. But what is a trip to Walgreens without at least a peak at the beauty sales.

And this Maybelline Elixir lip gloss was on sale buy one get one half off. So I got 2. Petal Plush and Raspberry Rhapsody.

Got back to my desk at work after running all mu lunch errands and went to go put my new lip gloss in my makeup bag. Which was already overflowing.

I have 17 lip colors in there to be exact. Plus a compact mirror, 3 lip liners, 3 hair bands, and 1 tube of chapstick. I have more at home for a total of 23 lip colors.

I think I may have a problem.

Is there a 12-step program for lip gloss?

I can tell you exactly what sparked my obsession enjoyment of lip color. I quit biting my nails.

I quit biting my nails after 30 years!

So now I’m not getting lip color all over my fingers and my face because I’m trying to bite my nails.

So do I have a problem? Yes, but 23 lipsticks ain’t one. I deserve them for conquering a bad habit.

Now my nail polish collection….

Ha! Love it! :) I’m not that much into makeup but sometimes I’m thankful for that. It is tons of fun to do though… I just don’t ever have the time. :)

Stopping by from Mama Kats! I just stopped biting my nails and I will be 30 in April! I have been biting them all my life! But I do not have an obsession with lip color. Ha ha! In fact I find one color I love and I use every single drop before I go hunting a new one. Usually by time I get finished with the one I have, they no longer make it. Gives me a complex! Too picky I suppose! :) http://becomingblameless.blogspot.com/2014/03/too-much.html

Good for you for stopping the nail biting habit! You deserve all the lip glosses you want for that!

30 years of biting your nails?! You so get to treat yourself to a little lipstick. That obsession has to go somewhere!

It’s always lovely to meet a fellow lipstick fetishist! I refuse to count my tubes/pots/vials/palettes/etc for fear of knowing the number. What is that nail polish? I’m coveting it! I also refuse to count bottles of nail polish.

What I mean to say, is “hi, my name is Mari and I’m a makeup hoarder.” :)

Lipstick is such an affordable treat/reward – may account for why I, too, have more choices in my make-up drawer/purse/bag than I have fingers and toes!
