Photos of Your Stash

I saw a thread a while back on here about counting your makeup products.  It was amazing to see those numbers!  While I was reorganzing and going through my makeup since I have moved on to Sephora, and since some things expired and I learned that the hard way lol, I got the silly idea to take a picture of it lol. So if you're bored or just reorganizing your stash, feel free to take a picture and post it!  Smiley Happy My collection is in the little league range at the moment lol

 

This is my stash after I went through stuff.  I don't use my Victoria's Secret kit much anymore since I discovered Sephora, but I still do use the blushes in it and the lip products when I'm at home for the day.  The main two palettes I've been using are from Urban Decay and Kat Von D, and I love both!

Here's my stash back to organization on my spinny organizer my granny gave me for Christmas.  It works well for the moment, but there's no way I can fit my polishes in it lol.

Re: Photos of Your Stash

annonymous1 I do like the Girl Meets Pearl. I asked for a sample a few months back to try it out. I liked it so when the 500 point perk was available a few weeks back at my local JCP I cashed in some points Smiley Happy  I think I like Watts Up better though.

i wish i could give you 10+ hearts Smiley Wink

Re: Photos of Your Stash

awe thanks violalea!  It was fun to put the pictures together and really think about what I have/like.

Re: Photos of Your Stash

they look awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Photos of Your Stash

That is a) super well organized, b) super well photographed, and c) really impressive!

 

I'm still building my collection, I aspire to this level of awesomeness.

Re: Photos of Your Stash

thank you Meg82!  I had fun taking the pictures and typing it up.  My husband bought me an acrylic organizer for our anniversary and it def helps with organizing.

I still keep one of my 5 drawer plastic sterilite drawers (most of what is in there are primers, foundation samples, skin care samples, and my go to mascaras/brow products). 



Re: Photos of Your Stash

Can you share where to get these acrylic storage drawers from?  I need them so badly!

Re: Photos of Your Stash

@runy  My husband bought this new on ebay. the company/seller is called B2Bitems. 

 

Here is an older thread where people have posted about storage (i have included pics on that thread too).

http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions/How-do-you-store-organize-your-makeup-stash/m-p/5...

 

I know a lot of BTers are into the Muji drawers- they are quite a bit less $$. which is really nice.

 

I love the drawers I have though, they are really thick acrylic and I like the little "knob" that I can use to pull (vs a hole that the Muji drawers have).

 

Edit 12/19/13 - DO NOT PURCHASE FROM b2bitems on ebay. They are terrible. Have terrible customer service and were dishonest (the case cracked within 4 months - please see this thread for more details: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Products/I-m-SO-upset-right-now-b2bitems-on-ebay-DO-NOT-BUY-FROM-THE...

Re: Photos of Your Stash

I can tell you weren't a fan of your recent ipsy box Smiley Wink 3 of the items are in your "gift box"!

Also, super jealous of your acrylic organizer. That thing looks amazing.

Re: Photos of Your Stash

@mpolansky  LOL, yeah I get scared of new lip products (lip liner from glam bag). Not a fan of the club sparkle eye cream shadows.

 

I may snag the purple eyeliner and NYX blush for myself though... I have a friend in mind who is just getting into makeup and I think she may like the purple liner. We will see Smiley Happy

 

I love my organizer! Sometimes I just go over there and organize things just to look at it and open the drawers. 

Re: Photos of Your Stash

Can't say I'm a fan of them either! I'm a little jealous you got the purple eyeliner... hopefully it has a better color payoff than my gray one I got. At least they're mostly full sized products so I can't complain. 

 

Anyway, beautiful makeup collection and storage Smiley Happy

Re: Photos of Your Stash

I didnt post all of this to brag or anything like that, I just wanted to share what I have been using/have (my stash) and the items I like, dont like and the ones that are good but not my faves. I like to see everything all organized and it was fun for me to write this all up (may be boring for you to read, im sorry). 

 

I was also nervous about posting because I didnt want people to think I am wasteful or ungrateful. Idk

Re: Photos of Your Stash

Love looking at the pics and reading your description!

 

Don't worry, I'm the wasteful one. You can say that you use everything!

Re: Photos of Your Stash

starletta8 but you will eventually use/try everything! I do have items in que too (will use in the near future).  

I think the reason I feel the way I do is because I used to be a minimalist. I actually wanted to be a nun (like a religious sister) for a few years back in college and literally thought that having extra things/stuff was bad.  I have broken out of that thought process but I think sometimes I feel guilty having stuff. Weird I know... 

 

Re: Photos of Your Stash

It makes sense!

 

See, you look at things from a minimalist perspective.  I have some pieces in my collection that are way past their expiration dates but they hold specific sentimental sway. (Not that I'm a hoarder, but, for instance, I have my first lip pencil stashed away, the old blue eyeshadow I used for colorguard and dance performances in middle school/high school, etc).

Re: Photos of Your Stash

I think it is really nice that you keep those items for sentimental reasons!  

 

ps. I am so happy you like the Aqualillies palette! 

Re: Photos of Your Stash

@roxystar4 - I love your stash!  Everything is so clean and organized.  I don't think that you are wasteful at all - it looks like you do your research and then get samples to try things out and buy what you do like.  To me, that's not wasteful.  Besides, makeup is supposed to be fun and are little things that make all of us happy.  Do what you like and buy whatever you want!  No judgment here!  I love looking at people's stash because I feel like I'm living vicariously through you guys.

 

Btw - that picture of you and your husband (at least I think that's you and your husband) from your wedding in the background looks beautiful!!!

Re: Photos of Your Stash

@LolaVal  thank you for such a  nice message!  That is a picture of my husband and I on our wedding day.  I keep it right next to my acrylic case. 

Re: Photos of Your Stash

It definitely doesn't seem like bragging, especially when it's being shared with a bunch of beauty junkies. I love looking at people's stashes,and seeing what they like. Plus it makes me not feel guilty about my own collection. It's not wasteful, I agree that makeup should be fun. And while it is not necessary, is more than one or two pairs of shoes always necessary? No but it's nice to have, plus I see makeup as a hobby I can invest in, like any other hobby!

Re: Photos of Your Stash

@roxystar4  Love the stash photos!!
