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

Nah, I wouldn't call that hoarding.  I would call it a nice looking eyeshadow palette collection :smileyhappy:

 

I only have a few paletes anymore, if I find I don't reach for one anymore I either give it away or get rid of it.  Right now I would say I have about 6.  Naked 3, Cinderella palette, Ariel palette, Paula's Choice matte palette, UD Vice, UD 15th Anniversay palette that I don't use anymore but I keep it around anyway, lol.

It's too many if you can't afford them.  If you use the bulk of them and they bring you a bit of happy, what's the harm?

Purrty. Everybody's got something they enjoy collecting. It's only too much if it stops being fun and become more of a chore or drag on your life in some way. I've only got 6 palettes, a dozen lipsticks etc. But since I only wear makeup ever other day (except Guerlain meteorites, which I wear almost every day), it's enough for me. Now, when it comes to skincare.....it got a little overwhelming when I had 100+ different products and after a couple went bad, it was too much for me since you really shouldn't keep them for longer than 2-3yrs, so I'm in the process of reducing it.

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

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!

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:

Best,

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.

Strategic stockpiling! Putting that one in my memory bank!

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.

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.
