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

Welp, here it is. I feel like I'm constantly looking for new palettes but I barely put a dent in what I have.

This is a capsule collection, but I'm still salivating just looking at it :smileyhappy:

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Which palettes do you feel are the most useful @meagboho? Based on your picture we have about the same color eyes, though I may have slightly more neutral undertones than you, but I definitely err on the cooler side of neutral (sunburn FTL!). 

 

I've been debating between all 4 of the Naked palettes. All I really use these days is Too Faced Boudoir Eyes... tend to be more of a single shade wash plus liner kinda girl.

 

I'm not sure if I'll ever be complete without all 4, and part of me just wants to pull the trigger and get it over with.

I use Naked2 constantly...I reach for Chocolate Bar, Natural Eye, and Naked2 the most...I like versatility and neutral/enhanced looks. I'm using the Naked2 today: Naked Basics is ok, good neutral mattes, but up next I'd get Naked1.

Hope this helps!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I'm definitely naturally drawn to taupes, so Naked2 is definitely my top choice, but I just see so many reviews talking about how great Naked1 is and the mattes of the Basics palette helping offset all the shimmer. 

 

I'm not super interested in chocolate bar because I don't really want the chocolate smell (though I'm guessing you can't smell it on your eyelids :smileyvery-happy: - though I could be wrong!). 

 

I'm a big fan of Too Faced too. Do you see any difference in the quality between the Nakeds and Too Faced palettes? 

 

Sorry for the nerdy questions... I'm a nerd.

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

You can smell the chocolate when you open the palette, but not on you, in my experience.  They each have similar amount of product, but TF has 16 shades, and the ones that are the all over starters have more, which is great. UD has 12. I want to say TF has more matte than UD, and definitely more versatile in terms of the kinds of colors, I think? UD comes with a decent brush though. I haven't noticed much fall out but UD is more shimmery and maybe a few are more buttery...both work really well with my light brown hair and blue eyes...I'm very pleased and reach for them more than anything else.

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Hi, etscore1. I'm probably a bad one to respond regarding the the Naked palettes. Lol!!! I started with Basics -- loved it. Then I looked at the rest of the Naked palettes and said 'I only want the Naked 3. I love the colors and I have The Chocolate Bar so I should be fine.' Fast forward a couple weeks after getting 3 -- ok I love it, now I want the first one. Got it! Used it for awhile -- ok now I HAVE to have 2. Got it! This is my story of how I ended up with all four. I'm not sure exactly how it happened, but they are all now in my possession. Go figure. Btw, I'm hearing rumors of a Naked 4. I'm not sure if it's true, but if it is, what are the chances that it will end up in my makeup bag too?!

 

I've been sarcastically poking fun at myself in this post, however, all the Naked palettes are terrific. 2 is my least favorite, but I've got no complaints about it. I just reach for the others first. You won't go wrong with whatever you decide.

Thanks for the feedback! What is your skin tone and eye/hair color if I might ask? 

 

I am so weary for some reason about my coloring and the rose shades of the 3... but everywhere it says rose shades are great for blue eyes.

Actually, judging by your picture, we'd probably match up fairly well. I have blondish/very light brown hair, when it's natural. (I tend to lighten it to hide the gray and take it back to its color when I was younger.) :smileyhappy: My eyes are blue -- my best friend said that they are the color of hyacinths, if that gives you an idea. My skin is somewhat fair and very normal. The only thing I'll add regarding the Naked 3 was that the first time I used it, I looked bruised/tired.  However, that was user error and not the palettes fault. I only had that happen once. I'm able to use all the Nakeds and I like them all. (Today is a Naked Basic day.) I don't really limit myself based on eye color or skin, but I also use liners to accentuate the color of my eyes.

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!!!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

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.
