Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I was at a friends last night and we ended up watching episode after episode of hoarders which was shocking and frightening at the same time. 

Today I read a comment asking to see my makeup collection so I pulled out my palettes out of their respective drawers for a photo and realized I have more than I thought. Also I realized how anxious I was about my hubby coming up and seeing how many I own. needless to say, they went back very quickly! 

I'm wondering if this is too many or if I'm just sitting pretty. I do use them all save for the nars ones. 

how many palettes do you own? do you use them all?

I feel like the majority of Beauty Talk users can agree with this meme! Well said, Ariel Smiley Wink. Heart

My collection looks just as bad as this one. 

 

I am constantly saying to myself its time to stop purchasing palettes and use what I have, but then someone comes out with a new amazing palette that I just have to have and I buy it. 

 

Well at least we know we will never not have the color we are looking for. lol

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

It's not really about not having the color anymore- it's more about having all the colours I want on the same palette. And let's face it- I love the designs on each palette. They all have their own character. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I agree. 

 

Plus I forget what I have at this point and I see a new color and it pulls me in. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Purrty. Everybody's got something they enjoy collecting. It's only too much if it stops being fun and become more of a chore or drag on your life in some way. I've only got 6 palettes, a dozen lipsticks etc. But since I only wear makeup ever other day (except Guerlain meteorites, which I wear almost every day), it's enough for me. Now, when it comes to skincare.....it got a little overwhelming when I had 100+ different products and after a couple went bad, it was too much for me since you really shouldn't keep them for longer than 2-3yrs, so I'm in the process of reducing it. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

It's too many if you can't afford them.  If you use the bulk of them and they bring you a bit of happy, what's the harm?

I like this answer! 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Nah, I wouldn't call that hoarding.  I would call it a nice looking eyeshadow palette collection Smiley Happy

 

I only have a few paletes anymore, if I find I don't reach for one anymore I either give it away or get rid of it.  Right now I would say I have about 6.  Naked 3, Cinderella palette, Ariel palette, Paula's Choice matte palette, UD Vice, UD 15th Anniversay palette that I don't use anymore but I keep it around anyway, lol.
