Would you consider this palette hoarding?

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

I feel like I have a decent collection of mid range stuff, so when I finally come off my no buy (which my husband says will be when the boys are in college), I want to start investing in more high end products.  I am so excited about your Jill Stuart items.  It looks so high end, so I am assuming it is a high end brand in Japan or is all of their makeup that immaculate?  I guess I have no clue.  When I go to Tokyo Disney, I will get some Jill Stuart items.  How are you enjoying yours?

I think it's still in the mid range category of makeup or at least the prices suggest so.  Japan has entirely different standards of makeup so even their drugstore cosmetics tend to be very very good.  There's a much higher population and more competition so the products end up being higher quality and cheaper.   I'm not sure to what extent though.   

Price points for the lippies are around $27ea.

the eyeshadows are $48

the blusher $50

the compact was sold in two parts. $35 for the compact and $22 for the foundation. 

I consider these pretty reasonable and comparable to a lot of mid range maybe higher mid range but the quality is really there.  

It may be considered high end though cause it was only sold on department stores which sold ysl, Chanel, guerlain, shu uemura, givenchy shiseido and Cle de peau.

Maybe it is high end, but the others have an import premium on them or something.  I wonder.  I still want some even if it is mid range, because it is so beautiful.

So after seeing everyone's impressive collections I laid out mine....here it is. All 9 of them. Not very impressive but more on the colorful side. 20141121_170848.jpg

 

The more I look at mine and then look at the beauties that you all have....the more I feel like....

A lifetime ago I used to be a painter. I loved color variety and I still do. And I think I end up getting pallets that have LOTS of different colors. I look for pallets with lots of colors that I don't already have. If I do get another pallet I may get the Hello Kitty one. I've read some reviews and tried out the colors in store. They are very well pigmented and the colors look better in person. Or I may just get a few more inglots.

You talk like you don't have a lot of shadow!   That's still quite a bit of shadow!!! 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

There is a lot of color! So many fun palettes!

right now Ive been using the Naked2, just bc it is on top of my drawer lol.   Unfortunately I dont have the habit of switching the options as I always lean to a highlighter color then a bronze shadow for the crease;(

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I agree it's very girlie wonderful!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

To be honest, I've only used one of the blushes once. It didn't perform all that well, so I kind of put it to the side and haven't used it since. Based on swatching it, the pigmentation and quality is really hit or miss, especially with the shadows. So you didn't really miss out on anything, if that makes you feel any better. :smileyhappy:
