I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

So out of boredom or something, I laid out all the makeup I had in one drawer.

Below is what I found. It was scary how much I had in one drawer. Did I mention I have eight more equally as full????

I have a makeup problem. I don't know if I should laugh or cry. photo.JPG

Welcome to the club lol. I've already admitted and accepted this. :smileytongue:

I'm scared to count the number of lippies that I have, especially since I brought the Give Me More Lip set.

In the words of BTer - consolvo,

"At least its not crack" --- I may have paraphrased a bit.

The first step is admitting that you have a problem.

I don't know but it says that you are a blush hoarder under your name...I think I need to be updated to a lipstick/gloss hoarder. :smileywink: I can still remember the shame years ago when I went out to the bar with some girlfriends and they were going into my purse. they kept pulling out lipsticks and counting them and I think it ended up that i had 23 with me that night .everybody was killing themselves laughing as more and more lipsticks came out. there's something to be said for consistent good taste

Must admit that my actual hoard of product is pretty small (one shelf of one bathroom cabinet, plus skin care in the med cab).

 

But I do like to try and buy new, and this month I placed like 10 - TEN! - orders... phew.  My first Clarisonic (Aria), new skincare routine from Algenist, new highlighter and contour, Beauty BLender (my first), DrDG 2 Step Pads, new Dior lip, and lots more. Definitely a record for me.

 

I was busy justifying this to myself saying I enjoy make up as an art - and I have to have "art supplies!"  And I use most of my products daily, I just have a small stash of restock, back up, testers, and special occasion make up.

 

Anyone else tried this "art supplies" rationale? :smileywink:

My collection is small compared to others too. I don't wear a large variety of colors, mostly warm neutrals.  But my skin care collection is growing and getting more and more expensive. 

 

I love the "art supplies" rationale!  I justify the skincare expense as saving money on makeup.  The better my skin looks, the less makeup I need to wear.  Let's say, I put my money in the canvas!

Quite awhile back we had a "Count if you dare" thread.  Read through that and you will not feel bad at all about how much you have.  You are definitely among like-minded friends.

Wow.  I *only* had about 100 lippies at that time.

I think instead of "BlushHoarder" your name should be "LippieHoarder." Unless you have more blush than you do lippies... if so, I WANT PHOTOS!!! :smileytongue:

lol. true. :smileyhappy:

I doe have an entire overflowing drawer of blushes, but I have two drawers of lipsticks and glosses.

Thanks for helping me not feel so bad. :smileyhappy:

You all are awesome.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

You should be rejoicing! Have fun going through your drawers (of make up) and revisit why you bought them in the first place.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Pretty, shiny, and especially purple :smileyhappy:

Thanks for the comment, I will take that perspective as I go through my stash.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

I like to think of it as rediscovering old favorites! Every time I reorganize my makeup I find things that I may have forgotten about or not used recently. As long as you use them, I see nothing wrong here :smileyhappy: If anything I think we're all jealous!

I'm a skincare hoarder and what I always say is, "Hey, it could be crack!".

@Consalvo Love it! I am totally using that the next time someone tries to shame me for my vast makeup collection lol
