How many lip products do you keep in your current handbag? I don’t change my handbags often, because I’m just too lazy to transfer all the things I have to another bag. I carry a larger tote most of the time, because I need to fit in Ashton’s things as well, like his water bottle, change of clothes, wet wipes, etc. So I have smaller bags in my handbag so I can find my things easier. For my lipsticks, I put them in a leather purse I bought in Australia. It’s big enough for 4 lipsticks and more, but I just keep it at 4.
I usually keep lipsticks I want to use up in this purse because these are the lipsticks I reach for to touch up or to reapply. I might apply a matte red lip before I go out of the house, but to touch up, I reach for one of these. From doing this, I used up 2 full sized lipsticks so far, and for me, this strategy works (to use up the many lipsticks I own). At the moment, the 4 lipsticks I have on rotation are Rouge Dior Nude in Charnelle, Urban Dacay Ex Girlfriend, Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in 395 and a mini Burberry Kisses in Sepia.
As you might have guessed, Charnelle and Lancome 395 (don’t know the name) are recently added to replace the two I used up. It looks like I’ll be using up Sepia soon, since it’s a mini and Ex Girlfriend is so comfortable and wearable that I can see myself using this up quite soon too. I’m thinking of adding a tinted lip balm in here, for those dry lip days but these lipsticks are really creamy and they don’t dry out my lips at all, so I’ll just leave it as is.
