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

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?

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
