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?

So weird, I had the exact same experience! And now it's every week! 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

It's nice! I'm constantly engaged with trying new looks.  I think I like the fact that it's never going to get boring. (And I like colouring all over my face!)

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

i especially love wayne goss. Who do you like? 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

what's too much? Some people collect handbags, or shoes.... Or stamps. You collect palettes. If it makes you happy and you can afford it, then why not. which one is your favorite? 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I agree with what sofie123  said..my husband likes sports of all kind, I like makeup of all kind Smiley Very Happy

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

My hubby likes tools and gadgets. He's actually the one who convinced me to get good brushes when I first started. right tool for the job. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Couldn't agree more...I can't believe I ever put on makeup with disposable sponges!  But I guess we all did once!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

As someone that has lived with a hoarder before, you don't nearly have enough to consider your beautiful collection hoarding  Smiley Happy

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

That's kinda what I was hoping to hearSmiley Happy

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Your collection pic just made me swoon

 

I have several drawers full and probably only use about 3 of them regularly but I figure there are way worse things I could be addicted to...

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Right???? I HAVE been stalking palettes. Does stalking enter a different territory? 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Pretties!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Hoarders have so much stuff that it gets in their way and interferes with their life.  This display is worthy of showing off!! I see palettes as keeping your colours ORGANIZED!! Look how neatly they stack up!! Imagine having all those individual shadows/pans scattered all over the place... see if your husband will complain then!! Don't worry girl, you are more than fine! Smiley Happy

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Oh I don't usually like single pots. i may have say nine of them? I forget to use them.

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Exactly!! You see how your palettes are useful and beneficial to your life?? haha Smiley Happy Keep on!

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Perfectly normal, perfectly healthy.  Smiley Happy 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I'll have to go and count my palettes in the morning...

 

I really don't think this is bad though. I know to someone that doesn't wear makeup it would be a lot, but I feel like it's okay if you actually switch them out and get some use out of all of them.

I collect a lot of makeup, but frequently switch stuff out/give away things I don't like, so I don't think I have a problem.

As I always say, at least it's a healthy addiction Smiley Happy

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I'm actually Very curious about your stash! Mind snapping a pic while you're counting?  

...I think I would cry if someone told me I had to downsize my collection. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I HAVE been told to downsize.  It's not going to happen.  Makeup makes me happy.  And I every few days I go through my stash to find something I haven't worn in a few weeks, and it becomes new again Smiley Happy  My makeup doesn't hurt anyone.  If it starts getting stacked in the hallway like on those hoarder shows, then I might need to downsize Smiley Wink

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Search on Palette Parade and then go look at the lists and pictures.  Maybe even join in.  I haven't updated recently so I don't know how many others have recently either.  But I assure you that you will find people with lists who will make your collection look small in comparison. Smiley Happy  As long as you are using them and they aren't cluttering up your life, I think you're fine. Smiley Happy

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Not yet. I am going to need another storage unit soon though. 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

Haha, I think for you to ask that question here, you know what answer you want.  

 

I'm like you.  The Naked 1 opened my eyes to the world of high-end palettes.  It's my hobby and I use them everyday so it's worth it to me.  That's the main thing, but it's still awkward when my friends make comments.  

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

I know! I DO like enablers! 

Re: Would you consider this palette hoarding?

That's a beautiful collection! I'm even seeing some palettes that I own as well Smiley Very Happy

 

There's a difference between collecting and using and hoarding. This isn't hoarding. I watch the show hoarders too and those people collect trash---things that are expired, useless, broken, and dangerous because its been contaminated. I'm sure if I put all of my makeup together on the floor and took a picture, then did the same for skincare and fragrance that it would look like I have too much. But I use everything and I like to alternate my products and play with different looks. Anything I don't like I give away so I never keep things I know I wont use.

 

Different people collect different things. I like things that I have a use for---makeup you use and use up so its not money wasted.
