I’m not big into makeup or shoes/accessories/jewelry but I don’t think less of people who are. I’m sure there are plenty of things that I like that they’re not wild about either. Aimee, if you can afford higher end makeup and it makes you happy to buy it, that’s all that matters. There are a lot of worse things you could be doing with your money and time! I think your advice was great, Karen. 🙂

Shopping my stash was fun; 2. I swapped and sold a lot of it, and; 3. Most importantly, now that my finances are different, being able to have had experiment with such a big stash has really helped me pare down my brands and my beauty routine. It was a wonderful life experiment, my big stash, and i wouldnt have a lot of my hg items if i hadnt gone that route. I now have a small but expensive and useful collection, with a few splurg-y collectors items (meteorites). Never underestimate the power of a big stash!

I go through exactly what the email describes but in the end, if it makes you happy and you’re being smart about the money side of things, it’s a hobby just like any other.
Hope that makes any sense.
