How Often Do You Wear Lipstick?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Lipstick is one of those beauty staples that everyone knows about but people rarely talk about. I mean, what’s there to say?

But with the other lip alternatives (gloss, balm, bare lips), it got me wondering how often people actually use the stuff.

Riddle me this:

My answer: Maybe a day or two a week, and that’s being generous (even though I own a ton of lipstick, as evidenced by the picture above). Most of the time, I let my lips go bare. And if I put something on them, it’s usually balm or gloss. I figure I do such dramatic eye looks, the lips should play second fiddle anyway.

In fact, I wear it so infrequently that I devoted an entire week to lipstick in the early days of Makeup Files, just to get out of my comfort zone. Maybe I should do that again! Would you join me?

Do you have a reason for your answer to the poll? (Hate lipstick, for instance?) Chat about it in the comments below!

  1. i have very sensitive skin and lips, and any lipsticks or glosses dry and crack my lips :( so i only use a lip balm, but i’m quite lucky that i have quite red lips anyway so i don’t need any lip make-up 😀

  2. I have never been a huge lipstick fan (I just prefer glosses) and I used to wear it a couple of times a month. But since I bough the Sleek True Color Lipstick in Rose Petal I wear it almost everyday. It’s a beautiful and soft antique rose pink that just goes well with any look and is so pigmented too!

    • Sleek really does seem to have awesome makeup. I have to try them out sometime! Though, I have been saying that for a while now…

  3. I wear lipstick almost every day. I love gloss just as much, but don’t wear it very much in the winter b/c of the wind.

  4. I haven’t worn lipstick in a few years. I constantly wear Chapstick and lip gloss, which I am addicted to, and I like the fact you don’t need a mirror to apply them. However this week I bought a bright pink lipstick because I thought I missed wearing lipstick. I am going to try to wear it more, but I am so lazy!

    • Well, then this poll was kind of good timing then, huh? Also, good choice on color. I bet bright pink will look good on you.

  5. I wear once or twice a week since my lipsticks are very moisturizing. I can’t wear dry and waxy lipsticks, though. Mine feel like lip balm.
