Product hoarding!

So, I think most people who buy makeup like we do have some sort of very specific product that they just love.  And I've noticed that it goes beyond brands, it's just a weird compulsion a lot of us have to keep buying nearly identical products because we think it's the best thing ever.  For example, I freakin' love taupe eyeshadow.  Every time I go makeup shopping, I always look at the taupe pressed powder eyeshadows from every brand - despite having close to 30 taupe eyeshadows sitting at home in my organizer.  To a lesser degree, I also hoard purple eyeliner.  It's awesome!

 

What's your secret product that you keep buying over and over again (and will probably continue doing no matter how many times you find the "perfect" version)?

Re: Product hoarding!

Oh, and mascara..It didnt even occur to me that that counted until I saw someone post it. Because it is just the normal to me..I have over 45 tubes ATM. And everytime I go out I often put 3-4 in the cart and then pick one to buy at the end. I cant stop. I need to try them ALL. They all do such dif thigns and this that and the other (BS really but still) I still do this after 3 years of always going back to my one mascara that I have never found better of. But I cant stop the hunt. 

Re: Product hoarding!

Eyeshadow. Specifically, eyeshadow palettes.

I am a sucker for all the pretty colors so neatly grouped together. 

Re: Product hoarding!

I hoard Lancome GWPs.  If I see one, I can rarely pass it up.  As they have so many, I have a LOT.  The biggest item is mascara, because it is the one item that seems to be in every GWP.  I have more than I could ever use before they dry up and go bad.  Defincils is my favorite, so I guess it is not a bad thing.

Re: Product hoarding!

 .... MOM?? is that you?! lol my mom hoards them too, as a result I have a bunch of mini eyeshadow palettes and enough bifacil to last 100 years lol

Re: Product hoarding!

Your Mom sounds like a smart woman.  I never pay for mascara or Bifacial anymore either.  Although I have more shadow than I can ever use, I cannot pass up a nice new palette from numerous brands.  I guess eyeshadow is the biggest beauty product I hoard when I really think about it.

Re: Product hoarding!

uh, SAME!! I have set aside a whole separate storage drawer just for unused Lancome GWP items, lol! I do love the Bifacil and mascaras to death, a few of the lippies and blushes. Unfortunately, I don't get much use out of the eye shadow palettes. There was only ever 1 that I loved so much I hit pan on it! Smiley Surprised ...that was before my eye shadow arsenal was significant tho. Nowadays, I try and give those extra palettes away either to family members or this year I put them in gift bags and donated them to my local women's shelter...sure beats them sitting around Smiley Happy

Re: Product hoarding!

I am a neutral eye shadow palette hoarder as well as a peachy/corally blush hoarder.  I have other colors, and I enjoy using them.  I even get compliments, but my eyes go right for the neutrals and corals.  I guess they're my "comfort food" of the make-up world.

Re: Product hoarding!

i have a ton of the infallible eye shadow singles from L'Oreal.... like the entire collection.... i also have a lot of golds and bronze eye shadows. i try to stop myself from buying similar shades by thinking "eh, it looks like something i have" but deep down i know that they are very different. 

 

My sister and my mom like to hoard Chanel products. my mom still has an unused eye shadow duo and a blush from last year. my sister only buys Chanel and nothing else. i tried to get her to try Dior but she was like "no it's not same!" 

Re: Product hoarding!

Tell your sister that the former Creative Director of Beauty at Chanel just left for Dior and maybe you can get her to branch out! I'm looking forward to beautiful things from Peter Philips at Dior! Smiley Happy

Re: Product hoarding!

I just looked him up and i'm in love with his work

Re: Product hoarding!

I'm shocked that you don't hoard Nars Sheer Glow.

 

 

 

Re: Product hoarding!

i wish i could

Re: Product hoarding!

Thanks to you Andy I went and got some Nars Sheer Glow the other day! I've seen you recommend it several times so I broke down and got a sample. they were out of my color in the store so I'm gonna work with my sample for a few days and order it on chic week!

Re: Product hoarding!

I'm glad to hear that! 

Re: Product hoarding!

Someone posted a thread asking which color they would be based on the Color IQ match which was my color and people responded so I took those suggestions and went to try them, I ended up being Mont Blanc. I need a tan!

Re: Product hoarding!

Mont Blanc has been out of stock for a while now and it wasn't on the NARS website, but it's back now! 

Re: Product hoarding!

I hoard eyeshadow pallets.. I don't know how to wear eyeshadow, but I keep buying it!

Re: Product hoarding!

All the things? Smiley Happy Smiley Happy Smiley Wink

Haha, but really- Nail polish from Chanel, Dior, Deborah Lippmann and RBL, LE highlighters and bronzers from Chanel, Guerlain, Dior and occasionally MAC. Also Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks, pinky-coral lipsticks of all kinds, coral blushes, and eye shadow quads and quints from Chanel and Dior. I'm trying to be more selective with dupes going forward, but I always have to reign in my inner product h00r, haha! Smiley Wink

Re: Product hoarding!

Red lipstick. I can't stop buying it.

Highlighted

Re: Product hoarding!

Red lipstick.

Red was the first lipstick color that touched my lips, and it'll be the last too.

 

I have tons of red lipsticks in all kinds of finishes, but i just can't pass up another one, because....well, it's RED!

Re: Product hoarding!

And it might be the PERFECT RED amirite? And this red is different because it's..a little more orangey. And this one is a bit more pinky. And I have to have this one because look, sparkles!

Re: Product hoarding!

exactly! I'm always on the hunt for new red lipsticks, but right now i'm getting into orangey reds Smiley Happy *continues hunting* 

Re: Product hoarding!

*whispers* nail polish.

Re: Product hoarding!

I seriously need them all!  Especially all the Chanels... and the Tom Fords... and the Diors.. and the Butter Londons...
