Post in Beauty Confidential

I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

So out of boredom or something, I laid out all the makeup I had in one drawer.

Below is what I found. It was scary how much I had in one drawer. Did I mention I have eight more equally as full????

I have a makeup problem. I don't know if I should laugh or cry.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Thanks BLG

You all are awesome.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

I think instead of "BlushHoarder" your name should be "LippieHoarder." Unless you have more blush than you do lippies... if so, I WANT PHOTOS!!! Smiley Tongue

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Seconded. Bring on the other 8 drawers!

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

lol. true. Smiley Happy

I doe have an entire overflowing drawer of blushes, but I have two drawers of lipsticks and glosses.

Thanks for helping me not feel so bad. Smiley Happy

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Quite awhile back we had a "Count if you dare" thread.  Read through that and you will not feel bad at all about how much you have.  You are definitely among like-minded friends.

Wow.  I *only* had about 100 lippies at that time.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Oh man that's such a great idea *runs off to go count makeup*

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Thank you for this thread --- reading it now Smiley Happy

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Must admit that my actual hoard of product is pretty small (one shelf of one bathroom cabinet, plus skin care in the med cab).

 

But I do like to try and buy new, and this month I placed like 10 - TEN! - orders... phew.  My first Clarisonic (Aria), new skincare routine from Algenist, new highlighter and contour, Beauty BLender (my first), DrDG 2 Step Pads, new Dior lip, and lots more. Definitely a record for me.

 

I was busy justifying this to myself saying I enjoy make up as an art - and I have to have "art supplies!"  And I use most of my products daily, I just have a small stash of restock, back up, testers, and special occasion make up.

 

Anyone else tried this "art supplies" rationale? Smiley Wink

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

My collection is small compared to others too. I don't wear a large variety of colors, mostly warm neutrals.  But my skin care collection is growing and getting more and more expensive. 

 

I love the "art supplies" rationale!  I justify the skincare expense as saving money on makeup.  The better my skin looks, the less makeup I need to wear.  Let's say, I put my money in the canvas!

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

I don't know but it says that you are a blush hoarder under your name...I think I need to be updated to a lipstick/gloss hoarder. Smiley Wink I can still remember the shame years ago when I went out to the bar with some girlfriends and they were going into my purse. they kept pulling out lipsticks and counting them and I think it ended up that i had 23 with me that night .everybody was killing themselves laughing as more and more lipsticks came out. there's something to be said for consistent good taste

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

keep in mind that these do go bad! try to use what u have before buying more! Smiley Happy

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

The first step is admitting that you have a problem.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

I'm scared to count the number of lippies that I have, especially since I brought the Give Me More Lip set. 

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

In the words of BTer - consolvo,

"At least its not crack" --- I may have paraphrased a bit.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Welcome to the club lol. I've already admitted and accepted this. Smiley Tongue

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Don't cry, we all have our weak spots. I have to watch myself too because makeup is like potato chips for me- you can't eat (have) just one!   I want to buy when I am bored, sad, anxious, etc  you get the picture.  There are things I buy on a regular basis like my skincare,mascara, foundation and concealer, and then there are the fun "treats". My treat of choice tends to be lipcolors.  I keep my makeup in drawers too and when I want a treat I make myself look in the drawers first.  Is it something I really need?  Is it something I will actually use?  Do I have almost the same color from 3 other brands?  This helps me because I have to make a decision based on the reality that is my makeup drawers. 

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

I wish I had your self control, garnett! It's especially hard to resist lippies when you're in store and can actually swatch them.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Great suggestions. I will try to control myself a bit more.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

If it makes you feel any better, I have a whole storage room of makeup and skincare products. I buy new stuff on a daily basis. On a recent giveaway, i passed out 5 bags of makeup.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

This does help Smiley Happy If you are a blogger PM a link to your page, I will check it out.

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Oh actually I'm not a blogger, but I've toyed around the idea of starting one! What with my immense stash of products I could probably start a beauty encyclopedia! haha

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

OMG. with that amount of makeup, you should definitely blog about it! Smiley Happy Do you have a YT channel?

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

I just made a post as to why I buy so much makeup and skincare. Thread is called Beauty from within in the beauty insider thread. =]

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

Other additions are much worse! Be happy that is makeup! Lol

Re: I am going to go ahead and say I have a problem.

For what it's worth, I think my ENTIRE make-up collection would fit into the same space that @BlushHoarder's lippies take up in the picture she posted.  I've probably doubled my collection this year alone due to you enablers.
