Do You Use a Lipstick Case?

Lipstick cases have retro appeal, but would you carry one now? Bath & Body Works even sells a lipgloss case. Do these just add extra weight to your bag and an extra step to something that should be simple? Or do you love protecting your favorite product in a cute case?

I used to and sort of liked it when out to dinner, etc. But I got away from using it: too much fuss, too much time.

No, it just makes it harder to get to my lipstick faster when I'm in a rush.

As a kid, I remember my grandmother had gorgeous ones..leather, with little mirrors. I always assumed then that when I grew up, I would use them as well. There are a few advantages - and disadvantages, however. 1)Using one to protect a lipstick from a beating means it gets beat up instead. Depending on how much its worth, versus the lipstick...its defeating its own purpose. 2) a point yes, but so is a plain Chanel case! 3)Most lipsticks/glosses are hardly standardized sizes, so what works for one thing, will not for another. 4)Takes more time to do something that you are trying to do "on the run" in the first place... Saying all that, having ONE nice case for a particularly good evening product, and slipping that into a really schmexy evening bag, to pull out whilst in the upscale ladies' room of a really posh restaurant? I think that would be quite nice indeed.

Sometimes when I travel and have to choose only some products to take with me (instead of the whole, huge case), I use a lipstick case to store a cover stick. Why? Because it's the size of a lipstick and I need a tiny brush for it and the brush gets lost if I don't somehow attach it to the cover stick.

I keep several lip things in my makeup bag inside my purse, so a case isn't really necessary and would just complicate things even more than usual.

I don't use one but might consider it if only for the use of the mirror. My MAC Minerlize compact doesn't have a mirror so I really need one. But the case would have to be cute like the pink one above. I don't want to look outdated lol

I just throw mine in a special compartment in my bag. I do not use a case. Nahh cases aren't for me.

You gotta be kidding me - I've used one forever, in fact I have several. I'd die without my lipstick case, I even have a double one and they're not that expensive unless they are leather and still affordable in my book. A must-have for me.

No, but I do see the point in keeping it in a case when you're carrying it in an expensive bag.

This would just add extra bulk to my already bulging make-up bag I carry around... besides a compact and eyeliner I have at least 10 lip products in there, and when I noticed I was like ok this is getting ridiculous I don't need that many of them with me, so I tried taking some out. Couldn't decide which ones to leave behind tho, so they still come with me everywhere I go. lol.

Very unnecessary way to spend your money.

I don't wear lipstick all the time, just lip gloss and the only lipsticks I own are safely on my dresser and vanity so a case is kind of useless. But I'm not going to lie that case is really cute and I would debate getting it instead of immediately dismissing the idea.

The only person I know who carries one is my mom, she just likes that it has a mirror on it.

I'm sure those lipstick cases will be in the sale bin soon. Seriously a lipstick case is kind of 80's and not in a good style rewind way.

Whats the point if it holds only one tube? Its a really dumb idea.

I haven't had a lipstick all over the inside of my purse crisis, so I might consider it if that were the case, but short of that, I don't see the point.

I don't see the point. I have a small case that holds powder and lip gloss/lipstick. Why bother with the excess?
