Over the years, I've used one tube up, have a second in my purse at all times, with a third in reserve, just in case Guerlain decides to discontinue the shade or formula.
I thought I'd get that out there before I start feeling overly smug about my thriftiness. Because I just found out that Tom Ford's Autumn 2016 collection includes a lipstick that will retail for $60.

Sure, it's pretty. But I think not. When I bought my first tube of Rouge G, it cost $45, which was quite bad enough. The price has been inching up, and when it went over $50, I was already hooked.
But $60? The shades of my Puritan ancestors recoil in horror at the thought. In fact, I think I hear the distant rumbling of the tumbrils and the jeers of an angry mob of sans-culottes.
Oh, and if I ever pop for a Christian Louboutin nail polish
