Count (if you dare)

I know there are many ladies on here that qualify as beauty addicts and product junkies and I was wondering, "How do I compare?" So let’s take a count (if you dare)! How much do you have?


Foundations/TMs –

Primers/Luminzers -

Powders -

Blush -

Lipstick/lipgloss –

Eyeshadows –

Eyeliner -

Multi-use Palettes -


Re: Count (if you dare)

I'm at work right now, but I'm intrigued (and more than a little apprehensive) to count the items in my arsenal...I just can't think about what I've spent!


: )

Re: Count (if you dare)

Me too. I'm at work right now but...later on tonight...interesting thought. Maybe it won't even be as much as I think, if I actually sit down and count.

Re: Count (if you dare)

I'm SO not doing this. YOU CAN'T MAKE ME!!!

*kicking and screaming*

Re: Count (if you dare)

@Katie -  I think I'm in denial about the things I don't have in my "currently in use" drawer. "Out of sight, out of mind" as they say.


@Daisy - Mine was worse than I thought! 


@Mermadelove -I feel your pain Fab!  That's one reason I haven't posted my numbers yet.  I want to make sure others need counseling as much as I do first!


I almost passed out when I counted my lipsticks and glosses!

Re: Count (if you dare)

@kalex: I know mine is going to be worse than I think it is...and for every category, I probably need to add about 5 to include all of the miscellaneous things I've stashed and left everywhere from not-currently-used handbags, luggage, desk, my glove compartment...

Re: Count (if you dare)

also @kalex: Do eyeshadow duos count as one, two, or a multi-use palette? (laughs nervously)

Re: Count (if you dare)

I took an inventory of all these things back in fall but I'll do it again since I've thrown away some stuff and added to the stash since.  It'll be interesting to see who's got most.  Smiley Wink

Re: Count (if you dare)

Foundations/TMs –3

Primers/Luminzers -2

Powders -4

Blush -7

Lipstick/lipgloss –14

Eyeshadows –a pallette that has 120 eyeshadows, 3 mac, 3 maybelline

Eyeliner -5

Multi-use Palettes -0


Re: Count (if you dare)

@Katie - I counted single eyeshadows, duos, and eye palettes the same. (i.e the Naked Palette only counts as 1).  Same thing with the multi-use palettes - it just counts as 1 instead of 3 eyeshadows, 2 glosses etc..  But if you want to separate them or add other categories, feel free!

WHY would I want to do that???? That's just torture!!!

I think I currently prefer to stay in denial. I'll count over the weekend and keep y'all posted. I think that it's not as bad as I think......

Re: Count (if you dare)

@naturalbeauty - You have a perfectly respectable makeup collection!  I think it is safe to say you're head is screwed on straight when it comes to makeup.  Smiley Happy

Re: Count (if you dare)

I just realized I never did this...but here it is, to the best of my knowledge:


Foundations/TMs – 3 (I swapped a few away!)

Primers/Luminzers - 0 (I stopped using primer), if the NARS Multiple in Copacabana counts as a luminizer, then 1!

Powders - 3

Blush/Bronzers - 52 (well, this is embarrassing)

Lipstick/lipgloss - 50+ (this is an estimate because some were not with my stash at the time I was counting)

Eyeshadows - 2 palettes, 5 NARS duos, and a few random I'm not sure how to count these

Eyeliner - 6

Multi-use Palettes - 1

Mascaras - 1

Concealers - 6

Brow Products - 0

Nail Polish - 11

Re: Count (if you dare)

OK ladies, I have been ignoring this thread because the thought of actually counting the makeup in my "active" makeup drawers was such a scary thought that I just kept putting if off.  Well, I finally gathered the courage to go ahead and see how many items I actually use.  Here's the list of my active stuff (I don't even want to think about my stash--ha, ha!):

Lipsticks - 45

Lipglosses - 19

Lipliners - 42
Foundations - 7

Foundation Primers - 6
Powders - 9

Concealers - 6

Eyeliners - 52

Eyeshadows Totaled from Palettes - 46

Eyeshadow Singles - 110

Loose Pigments - 12

MUFE Flash Color Pots - 7

Eyeshadow Primers - 4
Mascaras - 4

Nail Polish - 172


I guess you can tell that I love eyeshadow and eyeliners!  I guess you've gotten that idea from my other posts where I've talked about eyeshadow so much (ha, ha). 

Now that I've actually counted my active makeup, I am way too scared to even think about digging out my plastic bins containing my stash and counting that.  I really need to do it though cause I've got way too much now and I need to make room for more (ha, ha)! Smiley Happy


Re: Count (if you dare)


Foundations/TMs – 7 (only one being used regularly - sigh)

Primers/Luminzers - 5

Powders - 4

Blush/Bronzers - 17

Lipstick/lipgloss - 45

Eyeshadows - 40

Eyeliner - 13

Multi-use Palettes - 5

(added) Nail Polish - 100+




Yeah... Please judge me!  LOL

Re: Count (if you dare)

Oh Lord have mercy... I had to answer this question!

Here it is:

Foundations/TMs – 3 (Only 1 being used though)

Primers/Luminzers - 5

Powders - 2

Blush -7

Lipstick/lipgloss – 24

Eyeshadows – 39 (most are singles, i only have a few palettes) 

Eyeliner - 12... and they are all black and plums/purples. 

Multi-use Palettes - 3 

Now I know you didn't ask for these BUT I counted them and was blown away with myself: 

Mascara- For some reason I am obsessed with mascara and any sort of "gimmick" relating to mascara. I have a total of 6 open mascaras.... but for non opened mascaras that I have for backup I have a total of 7. So I guess a total of 13 mascaras.

Nail Polish- 142 (YES, I have 142 nail polishes... you could say, wow she never needs to buy another nail polish ever again but I am self proclaimed nail polish addict) 


Thats just makeup! You don't even want to know what I own for skin care.... it is absolutely ridiculous!


Oh I forgot I just bought 2 new shades of nail polish at Target to day so I now have 144 nail polishes... hahahahahah I sound like a lunatic. My boyfriend got home from work and here I am on the floor, sprawled out, counting all my stuff... I have all my nail polishes lined up and he just looks and laughs!

Re: Count (if you dare)

It's always more! Is there anyone who actually ended up with LESS than they thought they had??


Re: Count (if you dare)

I actually thought I had more eyeshadows and hand cream...Here it goes, even thought the topic was started a long time ago!!!


Foundation: 3 (1 back-up)

Powder/luminizer: 13 (but 4 of them are deluxe samples, I bought the UDPP kit)

Blush/Bronzer : 3 bronzers (not a big fan of blush, I have 5 in a multi-use palette, but I don't think I even put them on once, my cheeks are already red, if I add blush, I'll look like a clown!!)

Lipstick/lipgloss: 14

Eyeliner: 15

Glitter eyeliner: 12

Eyeshadows: single: 32  quads: 5 (so I guess it's 52 colors, plus the 50 colors in the 5 in 1 color play, so I guess it's 102!!)

Multi: 1 (the 5 in 1)

Mascara: 9 (but I only use 2, the rest are back-ups...and 6 of them are deluxe samples... I rarely buy full size since I toss it every 3 months...)

Concealer: 5

And my favorite, hand cream: 13 (and yes, I use them all!!!!)


And I started to count my deluxe samples for face and body skin care, but I stopped at 20, and there was a least as much to go!!!! Since I travel a lot, they're perfect!!!

 This was fun... Way more interesting than getting my classes ready for tomorrow, heheheSmiley Very Happy
