Would you consider this palette hoarding?

[ Edited ]

I was at a friends last night and we ended up watching episode after episode of hoarders which was shocking and frightening at the same time. 

Today I read a comment asking to see my makeup collection so I pulled out my palettes out of their respective drawers for a photo and realized I have more than I thought. Also I realized how anxious I was about my hubby coming up and seeing how many I own. needless to say, they went back very quickly! 

I'm wondering if this is too many or if I'm just sitting pretty. I do use them all save for the nars ones. 

how many palettes do you own? do you use them all? image.jpg

So jealous of everyone that has KVD Spellbinding and Esperanza!

I have only used my Esperanza palette twice. If you want to do a trade or something, send me a PM. :smileyhappy:

Wow! This is so neatly stored! I wish my daughter's would store palettes like CD's; our house would be a far neater place! Which do you turn to most, and which do you turn to least?


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Shortstuff I think we have close to the same collection!  If I ever took pics I would try to recreate your pic with my own just to see if I could :smileyhappy:  Obviously I love your collection!


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I'll have to take a photo later - but pulling from my inventory sheet (yeah, I'm like that) what I have, while it isn't as much as some of you, fills my Alex drawer and I'm not sure I have room for more without more storage.

I'm sure there's more I've had over the years.

Would love to see a pic, but this list is mega! I am stunned by how much UD you have; do you use them all?


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

My follow Meag, Ima need a picture of all of this!!


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

And my over-full Alex drawer with bonus MAC paint pots.

Wow - you're super neat with storage! I wish my daughter's were ... Are there some palettes you turn to most?


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Open. Sorry for the glare - mirrors are hard.

Ahhhhhg!   You are so organized to have an inventory sheet.  My hubby mentioned I should make one and take pictures for insurance purposes.  It's not a terrible idea but sounds like a lot of work.  One bored day I probably will follow your good example.


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

It took less time to generate than I thought it would - I did it in an evening and it includes all of  my nail polish (113 bottles,) all of my perfume (54 scents,) and all of my lipstick (80 - I didn't realize I was at an even number!) which all took considerably more time than all of the various stuff in my Alex drawers. The nice thing is that mine is in a Google Sheet (in Google Drive) which I can export to other formats but is always available via my phone so that I don't forget what I have when I'm shopping - no more picking up the wrong brush since I'm already at the MAC counter, I know what's in my stash at home in addition to what's on my wishlist! :smileyhappy: 


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I'm a newbie so I don't have a whole lot, nor do I have anything particularly impressive. But here's what I have! Also, I have two Sephora Pantone palettes on the way; Elemental and Day Break (I know I'm late to the game but I saw the Elemental palette in a TSB thread and fell in love. Had to snag it up while it was available!) And I ordered the Vanity Affair box from Birchbox and there is a MAKE palette in there as well. image.jpg


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

This is a decent sized collection if you're new to this, and don't worry, it will grow :smileywink:


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Looks like a fair sized stash to me:smileyhappy:.  I honestly can say I don't need so many palettes but they're fun to have on hand.


Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

As my own obsession interest in makeup has grown I have decided that only can answer the question for myself if I have "too much." For me, makeup is an art, and I hardly think anyone would tell a painter they have too many paints or too many brushes. Part of the joy of it is having a selection to choose from to be able to do my makeup how I wish to on any given day. I work hard in my life and don't do much else for myself, so I am ok with it. :smileyhappy:


if I find I am not using something or have lost interest, I do try to find it a new home. Makeup is perishable over time. That's why I love the trade threads and TSBs, etc. 


I don't hide makeup from the hubby but I wouldn't let him give me a hard time for it either. He has like 18 different kinds of hammers - he recently ordered one that was about $100. I asked him how it was different from the other 17 in the toolbox drawer of hammers. While my eyes did glaze over rather quickly and my mind drifted to other matters, such as what might be The Perfect color orange for a lipstick, I did get from the conversation that the particular hammer would do something unique that the others could not. I further inquired how often he might use it, which I learned was rather rarely, but when he needed it, it was the right tool for the job. Sound familiar? :smileyhappy:
