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

 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

My collection looks just as bad as this one. 

 

I am constantly saying to myself its time to stop purchasing palettes and use what I have, but then someone comes out with a new amazing palette that I just have to have and I buy it. 

 

Well at least we know we will never not have the color we are looking for. lol

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

It's not really about not having the color anymore- it's more about having all the colours I want on the same palette. And let's face it- I love the designs on each palette. They all have their own character.

I agree. 

 

Plus I forget what I have at this point and I see a new color and it pulls me in.

I feel like the majority of Beauty Talk users can agree with this meme! Well said, Ariel :smileywink:. :heart:

I think that's a nice palette collection. :smileyhappy: I hope to get that much one day. I probably have about 15. Maybe a little less.

15 palettes is a very healthy collection! 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

You can't have too much money, love or makeup. That's how it works in life. Anyone telling you otherwise is plain jealous.

 

Pretty sure your husband has some collection of his own, or would like to (cars, electronics, bands t-shirts, dvds, or the likes), everyone does.

 

I keep telling myself so each time my collection seems crazy.

Or enough pets :smileywink:

 

 

 

 

But I guess animal hoarding is a thing...Hmm haha

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I am too scared to count all of my palettes, but I would say I have between 20 to 25 :smileywink:. I definitely don't consider your collection palette hoarding because you have a wide variety of brands and shades in there :smileywink:

This isn't hoarding, just strategic stockpiling.  I would explain to new hubby that eyeshadow palettes are like toilet paper - one of those things a woman must be sure to never, never run out of.

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Strategic stockpiling! Putting that one in my memory bank! 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Haha I love this!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

No girl you're fine! Palettes are totally worthy investments. (Although I do understand the husband anxiety lol)

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

This seems like a great collection, not hoarding at all :smileyhappy:  besides, palettes are awesome. I always feel you get more bang for your buck with them. 

 

 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Haha, I think for you to ask that question here, you know what answer you want.  

 

I'm like you.  The Naked 1 opened my eyes to the world of high-end palettes.  It's my hobby and I use them everyday so it's worth it to me.  That's the main thing, but it's still awkward when my friends make comments.

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

That's a beautiful collection! I'm even seeing some palettes that I own as well :smileyvery-happy:

 

There's a difference between collecting and using and hoarding. This isn't hoarding. I watch the show hoarders too and those people collect trash---things that are expired, useless, broken, and dangerous because its been contaminated. I'm sure if I put all of my makeup together on the floor and took a picture, then did the same for skincare and fragrance that it would look like I have too much. But I use everything and I like to alternate my products and play with different looks. Anything I don't like I give away so I never keep things I know I wont use.

 

Different people collect different things. I like things that I have a use for---makeup you use and use up so its not money wasted.

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Search on Palette Parade and then go look at the lists and pictures.  Maybe even join in.  I haven't updated recently so I don't know how many others have recently either.  But I assure you that you will find people with lists who will make your collection look small in comparison. :smileyhappy:  As long as you are using them and they aren't cluttering up your life, I think you're fine. :smileyhappy:
