How many of them to do you buy at once/hoard/stash at home? Very Happy

And if you do this, do you worry about them going bad or drying out? What is the lifespan of an unused, spare lipstick?

This is a great topic. Funny thing is...I never settle on an HG really. I get so bored that I know that I should never buy more than one because I'll most likely get half way through it and decide "eh...I'm bored...NEXT!!!"

EDIT: I do have to say that the closest I've come to an HG is Clinique's Honey Gloss...until they went and change the color on me...now it's no longer a beautiful sheer nude...it's pink and pearly and just plain UGH!!!

I don't have a holy grail lipstick really. I tend to buy from certain brands, but they always end up being similar shades. I just have so many I don't remember what colors I have. My favorites are Bobbi Brown Mauve and Nude.

My favourite is Bobbi Brown in Raisin Very Happy . I have lots of other colours by Bobbi Brown, but I always tend to use the Raisin. Some, I must have had for about 5 years Shock . I think the life span is about 2 years, but mine are stored in a box at the bottom of the wardrobe, and they never seem to got off. Although, once I did pull one out to use, and found it had a funny spell, so I binned it. It was probably about 8 years old Embarassed

Bumping because I would love to know the lifespan of new, unopened lipstick so I know how much to stash away!

I've heard you're only supposed to keep lipsticks and lipgloss for up to a year. I tend to hang on to the ones I really like, though, since it seems like it takes more than a year to use them up since I have so many in rotation. I will throw out something I tend not to use, though.

I find that lipgloss tends to turn fairly quickly, after a few months even. I've stopped using a lipgloss, lost it, only to find it two to three months later and put it on...horrible taste. I know it's bad. Or when I find one of my clear ones, like city lips, and it's yellow.

Ugh.
