I only had one lipstick and it's just an Ever Bilena. I rarely use it since I only dab a couple on my lips, spread it out and cover up with a tinted lipgloss. I just use the lipstick to add a little color.
Once I forgot the lipstick on the dashboard of the car when we went to the mall. It was really hot so it melted. I tried to salvage it by reconstructing the shape but it wouldn't hold out. I then use a lipstick brush just to apply it. Still, too messy with the lipstick getting in and around the tube.
I decided to do something about it. Here's a short tutorial on how I made this cute lipstick palette.
