Foundations/TMs –

Primers/Luminzers -

Powders -

Blush -

Lipstick/lipgloss –

Eyeshadows –

Eyeliner -

Multi-use Palettes -


Re: Count (if you dare)

How did I not know about this forum on Sephora?? OMG this place is great!!! Wow this topic is .....crazy scary. I'm not sure even I want to know the specific numbers of my makeup collection it will be massively high. I did just do a thorough nail polish organization and I counted 217, but after I got rid of some (5) and gave some (22) more away I was left with about 190 which is still unecessarly high. So if my nail polish collection is any indication of numbers .....YIKES!!!!! I'll have to get back to you with the dreaded numbers.

Re: Count (if you dare)

It might take awhile to count and take photos and post so for now I am posting my lip products in clear containers first : ) and the rest of my lip products (lipstick, lip treatments) later Smiley Happy 


I dont know about you guys but looking at the bright pretty pink colors from these tubes just cheer me up Smiley HappyIMG_3607.JPG

Re: Count (if you dare)

violalea--How do you like that Milani gloss? I remember once trying it on from my aunts makeup baggy (puttin on the glitz) and I really loved the color/formula, but that was a long time ago. I already have a bunch of glosses I rarely use (I'm a lipstick gal) but I still really want to get a Milani.

Re: Count (if you dare)

I havent used it that often perhaps 4-5 times so far and the rest of them thats why they they are still pretty much new as you can see.


But the Milani lasts me about 3-4 hours and my lips do NOT get dry out by the thick sticky texture, and it has this thingy I believe its called doe-foot applicator and its pretty convenient. Its around 6-7 bucks so pretty cheap. Smiley Happy 

Yeah you should try it.

Re: Count (if you dare)

Thanks for the review!  I know that they make some gorgeous pinks! Gotta get my hands on at least one! After my no buy though lol.

I have always focus on skincare and only recently really ventured into makeup. Right now, I can easily keep all my makeup in a two-tiered box, and, well, prevention is better than cure. At least, in the "Makeup" department, I can still reign myself in! So, I am DETERMINED to not buy more makeup than can fit in this box. I guess I'm a little lucky to get obsessed with makeup in a time when "Empties" videos on Youtube are popular. Not only do I get to see what beauty gurus actually use, these videos probably send sublimal messages to my brain to have a healthier attitude towards buying makeup. I really hope to be conscious about the number of each makeup item I own and be strong against dazzling marketing (**bleep** I so want to get every single shade of Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Powder! Must... resist!). 


Thank you so much for starting this thread! It was fun (and reflective) to count the number of products I have.

Re: Count (if you dare)

Re: Count (if you dare)

I'm going to make myself feel better by counting my parents' stashes instead of mine....


My Dad:

Ivory Soaps, bulk packaging

Whatever shampoo my mom is using


My Mom:

Bottle of Pantene

Bottle of Lubriderm Lotion

Jar of Pond's

She cleanses with warm water (!!!)

Lipsticks - hmmm maybe 8?

Lip balms - 1 plus 2 or 3 backup ones in a drawer


I swear, that's all they have in their bathroom!  It's so refreshing to visit them.....


Re: Count (if you dare)

HAHA you should count yours! I'm curious now lol

Re: Count (if you dare)


Re: Count (if you dare)

@triciaann12 - omg hilarious!  your mom sounds awesome!

Re: Count (if you dare)

I don't know how bad I am, but I know I hoard way more than I actually ever use.


Foundations/TMs – 2
Primers/Luminzers - 3 (Luminizers)
Powders - 1
Blush - 8
Lipstick/lipgloss – 15 (give or take)
Eyeshadows – 30 (give or take)
Eyeliner - 10 (approx)
Multi-use Palettes - 1

Perfume - 1


On a daily basis I only use the Josie Marans Protect and Perfect TM, UD Afterglow in Greedy or Indecent or sometimes I use the Guerlain Terracotta in 01 Blondes, and Mac Pearlglide Intense eyeliner in Rave (almost done and will be using designer purple soon). So the rest, sadly, just sits there.... kind of sad lol

Re: Count (if you dare)



Fragrance: 16 total


Skincare: 22 total



Acne Treatment-3




Pore Strips-1

Face Sunscreen-2




You know...that doesnt look too bad (except for the fragrance....eek!). I've been really good about not buying skincare unless I need something for awhile now. I didnt count my deluxe samples or sample packets.


*pats herself on back*



Re: Count (if you dare)

That doesn't seem bad. Lol, only 1 pore strip? 

*pat you on the back*

Re: Count (if you dare)

Well I meant one box lol. I dont know exactly how many pieces are in the box, but one box. And the wipes too, one packet. I am *not* counting these things individually! Now that I'm seeing the numbers like that....maybe 22 skincare items is a little extreme. Its certainly a lot less than what I used to have though!

Re: Count (if you dare)

I'm doing a good job working at using up what I have. 2 of my cleansers are half empty, and 2 of my scrubs are almost empty. Since I use scrubs once a week or less though...they hang around a long time even if they are "almost empty" hehe. In the summer when its triple digits I use a scrub 2-3 times a week. But now its cloudy/rainy looking outside and my skin is dry.

Re: Count (if you dare)

My mom has an *insane* amount of skincare. She has this 3 drawer organizer dedicated to just her backup skincare.


Guess I know where I got that from.
