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

How long have you been playing make up? I feel like I'm on the same trajectory...

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Three years approximately, but things really took off late summer last year when I started learning about brush techniques and copying looks on youtube. Then all of a sudden I was bringing home makeup every week.
Well, according to most everyone here, it's not a bad thing!

So weird, I had the exact same experience! And now it's every week!

It's nice! I'm constantly engaged with trying new looks.  I think I like the fact that it's never going to get boring. (And I like colouring all over my face!)

Not at all! Makeup addicts know that once you start buying you can't stop. I have around 24 eye palettes, 5 lip palettes, and probably 5 cheek palettes? Anyways, be proud of your palettes! You should make a beauty instagram to show off all your makeup (:

I love looking at other peoples stashes but never thought of showing off mine.

I can tell you one thing: you have great taste! 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Thank you. It was such an epiphany moment when I got my first higher end palette. It all started with the naked2. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

i'm in the same boat you are.. i have so many that i actually feel a little ashamed. i don't really use them all but i'm trying to

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I rotate mine a lot. i try to use a different palette everyday- sort of a game I play with myself to ensure they're all getting love.

i've been trying to do that more lately but then i get too overwhelmed with which one to choose that i run back to my lorac pro palette.. the sad thing is that i have two lorac pro palette and a naked basics palette so i always use my those two because i get scared of touching my other ones. i used my laura mercier luxe color portfolio one the other day and i freaking dropped my container of concealers on it!! lucky me i only dented one shadow and scraped a few.

Maybe we could start a palette train likes some others have done?

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

yess, but i feel like mine would seriously go through until 2015 haha

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

ha, well, I wouldn't be able to sanely use the same palette all week. I could use each one three days max or it would take too long.

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Of course not!!! I call it having great, eclectic taste.lol Any time my husband sees all of my makeup, he is taken aback by how much I have but everyone has their hobby and makeup is mine!

Yeah, he knows it's my 'thing' but I'm not sure he's ever seen it all at once. I don't think I've seen it all at once actually.
