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

That sounds about right! I have light skin with neutral/slightly cool undertones, light blue eyes and light brown hair. 

 

I definitely worry about that bruised/tired look and seem to see a lot of blue eyed women having the same concerns about the rose hues for that exact reason. Good to hear that it's not an issue when done right!

You just may want to experiment a bit to find out what's right for you. I can understand being tired of pinks, but the N3 is a pretty versatile palette.  As a side note, I used the N3 for my niece's wedding with shades of violet liners.  (My dress was mauve.) I got a lot of compliments and was really pleased by the pictures I've seen so far.  You'll have to post what you decide -- I'll be curious. :smileyhappy:

Despite looking at those palettes for hours (probably literally if I added up all the time!) online, I finally looked at them in person when I ran into Sephora today. I was trying to be quick for the sake of my boyfriend (who I told I only needed to run in and look at one thing - which quickly turned into 5 things - but we were still out in record time) so I didn't really do anything other than look and hold.

 

But despite LOVING 2's shades online, I feel fairly confident that if I end up buying one, it will be Naked 1. 

 

Unfortunately that still doesn't solve my problem with needing a palette of versatile matte shades. Not sure if Naked Basics will fill that void or something else.

You won't go wrong with the Naked 1. I love my Basics and frequently use it, but I'm also looking at getting Too Faced Matte Shadow palette. Maybe that one would interest you. Kudos to your boyfriend for going to Sephora with you. Although my husband would go with me, his patience would wear thin quickly which would then try my patience. It would be a vicious cycle! Lol!!!

What I really wanted to see was what color La Creme shade I bought last night since I hadn't tested any of them in person. He was happy with my choice. 

 

And yes, I know I'm lucky. But I did say walking in, "I just need to look at ONE thing..." and before I even could get through that sentence I was all, "TWO THINGS! JUST TWO THINGS I PROMISE!"

 

Which turned into "One more real quick..." haha...

 

I'm a little sad because I love the look of 2 online, and it's possible I could still change when I actually swatch a few... and 1 isn't on the top of my list - the matte shade/shades/palette is actually more of a priority.

By liners, I meant colors like blue, purples, greens. Nothing too heavy handed -- I'm forty-something and pretty conservative. Just enough to set them off a bit.

This is my collection of larger palettes. I have more than a dozen others if you're counting quads, trios, duos, but let's pretend you're not. :smileytongue:

Ahhh, I've had those stila palettes in my loves forever now!  I don't know why I haven't taken the leap yet, maybe no one ever talks about them.  How do you like them?

I love them! They go on well and are pigmented. They also come with tiny booklets that show you how to do a few looks. Truth be told though, I'm not sure I'd have bought them at full price -- I got them either through a Sephora sale or via Birchbox with all of my points (the neutral one only cost me $1!!)

 

Come to think of it, I don't think I've bought any of my palettes at full price! All on sale or with coupons/discounts! I suddenly feel less guilty about my hoarding. :smileyvery-happy:

I also have plenty eyeshadow palettes. I don't consider it hoarding if we are getting use out of them. Also it's something we love either because we love to use them, collected them, or plain old looking at them. If it makes you feel happy and their are not blocking any possible fire escapes routes, you are good. :smileywink:

This is a nice collection! It reflects focus, which I think is important. The thing that makes someone a hoarder is when they don't have any direction to their collection and have too much at the same time. Not the case here. Seems like you have a style to what you like, and I respect that even if those items wouldn't necessarily be in mine.
