Backups: Tell me I'm not alone :/

Do any of you ladies have several backups of the same item? For example, I have 5 back-up Beauty Blenders... I know that they aren't limited edition, and probably won't be going anywhere EVER, but I just don't want to be caught without one!

 

The Hubby thinks I have a problem because I "collect pink sponges," but help me feel less crazy by sharing what you stockpile :smileyhappy: Please? lol

You're definitely not alone! I keep back-ups of everything that I love. WEN, Buxom Amplified Mascara, Josie Maran Argan Oil, Josie Maran Cleansing Oil, TONS of Lipglosses, Tarte Maracuja Eye Treatment, Buxom Stick Around Eye Primer, Clarisonic brushes and Buxom Full-On Lip Stick in Sydney. Plus, many others, but that's most of the things that I keep multiple backups of lol.

That's the color I am wearing in my picture, with a little bit of lipgloss on top of it. I love it! :smileyhappy:

You are definitely NOT alone! I have so many backups of so many items! Sometimes sadly, after I finish whatever I have, I usually don't want to use the backup anymore because something bigger/better has come along!

Yes!  I'm so glad I'm not the only one!  I buy everything in two's, and if I really like it I buy an extra and keep it in my linen closet....All in plastic bags....!

I usually have a foundation backup on hand (Bare Minerals READY) but that ended up backfiring because I'm too pale for it now! ANDDD I can't return it, (well, I *could* but it's been more than 3 months since I bought it (I  bought it over the summer) and they won't be able to re-sell it since I used it, thinking it was the right color.) I would feel so silly going up to the counter with the packing slip - "Uh, I went like 6 months and then decided that it's the wrong color."

Same here!  When I started I was Medium Beige.  I went to Medium, then to Light, to Fairly Light, now I'm pretty sure I use Fair.  I have opened containers in all of those, and some smaller unopened ones in some of them.  :smileysad: 

 

Maybe yours will be usable again come summer?

Re: Backups: Tell me I'm not alone :/

Have you ever tried the Clinique Take the Day off? That's my HG, but I am curious to know if you like the Lancome better!

arielaaaaaaaa

Re: Backups: Tell me I'm not alone :/

Yes, I have tried the Take the day off Makeup Remover, and i like it more than the Lancome! I feel like it takes off my eye makeup a lot better! And it's great at removing Lip stains! 

They both get the job done, but the clinique is just a lot faster!

itsjaimiehere

Re: Backups: Tell me I'm not alone :/

Awesome! The Clinique is $10 cheaper too :smileyhappy:

CharliefromNY

Re: Backups: Tell me I'm not alone :/

Me too!  I've tried them both and like the Clinique.  It works better, and isn't as greasy feeling.

I buy backups for most of my lipsticks....I fear discontinuation so much!

Discontinuing products is how they get us. EVERY TIME!!! Even if it isn't LE the companies can just discontinue a product at any time without so much as an email saying "better stock up! we're getting rid of this soon!!!"

[ Edited ]

2 mini origins ginzing eye cream (point perk or kit)

1 lucky and 1 elderado UD eyeliner (now discontinued) 

1 Mac fashion boost liner (LE liner)

1 Mac heroine liner (LE liner)

1 mini Laguna (came in a kit) 

2 mini SB under eye primer (perk with sb orders)

1 mini SB light primer (point perk) 

1 tarte doll face blush (fave color during fnf sale, I own a mini) 

1 mini MJ blacquer liner 

 

i try not to backup unless it's an LE item that i am going to use.  Or if it came in a kit I make sure to sell off things I won't use so I'm not just hanging onto products for  no reason . The other reason I try not to do it often is in case I fall out of love with a product.  But for things like toner , I bought two at once. I might do it with cleanser too.

Re: Backups: Tell me I'm not alone :/
