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

Not yet. I am going to need another storage unit soon though. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I'll have to go and count my palettes in the morning...

 

I really don't think this is bad though. I know to someone that doesn't wear makeup it would be a lot, but I feel like it's okay if you actually switch them out and get some use out of all of them.

I collect a lot of makeup, but frequently switch stuff out/give away things I don't like, so I don't think I have a problem.

As I always say, at least it's a healthy addiction :smileyhappy:

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I'm actually Very curious about your stash! Mind snapping a pic while you're counting?  

...I think I would cry if someone told me I had to downsize my collection. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I HAVE been told to downsize.  It's not going to happen.  Makeup makes me happy.  And I every few days I go through my stash to find something I haven't worn in a few weeks, and it becomes new again :smileyhappy:  My makeup doesn't hurt anyone.  If it starts getting stacked in the hallway like on those hoarder shows, then I might need to downsize :smileywink:

Perfectly normal, perfectly healthy.  :smileyhappy: 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Hoarders have so much stuff that it gets in their way and interferes with their life.  This display is worthy of showing off!! I see palettes as keeping your colours ORGANIZED!! Look how neatly they stack up!! Imagine having all those individual shadows/pans scattered all over the place... see if your husband will complain then!! Don't worry girl, you are more than fine! :smileyhappy:

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Oh I don't usually like single pots. i may have say nine of them? I forget to use them.

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Exactly!! You see how your palettes are useful and beneficial to your life?? haha :smileyhappy: Keep on!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Pretties!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Your collection pic just made me swoon

 

I have several drawers full and probably only use about 3 of them regularly but I figure there are way worse things I could be addicted to...

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Right???? I HAVE been stalking palettes. Does stalking enter a different territory?

As someone that has lived with a hoarder before, you don't nearly have enough to consider your beautiful collection hoarding  :smileyhappy:

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

That's kinda what I was hoping to hear:smileyhappy:

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I agree with what sofie123  said..my husband likes sports of all kind, I like makeup of all kind :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

My hubby likes tools and gadgets. He's actually the one who convinced me to get good brushes when I first started. right tool for the job.

Couldn't agree more...I can't believe I ever put on makeup with disposable sponges!  But I guess we all did once!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I consider hoarding, collecting items and things of no value or buried somewhere so they have no use to you because you can't access them.  This is a prized collection, NOT hoarding.

what's too much? Some people collect handbags, or shoes.... Or stamps. You collect palettes. If it makes you happy and you can afford it, then why not. which one is your favorite? 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Ha, my friend mentioned I hoarded makeup. I do store it in it's own little 'makeup palace'. Lol! 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

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!
