Wow. Well, I know what El Hub would say. “Build up nothing and trim down EVERYTHING.” LOL! 🙂 To his credit, the poor man has been drowning in an ocean of eyeshadow palettes for years.
Seriously though, I’d like to build up my Chanel Stylo Yeux eyeliner collection, because they’re my favorite liners, and I want all teh pretty colors. 😍
I’d also love some Chanel blushes from the permanent line! — ooh, and some more cream eyeshadows. And a small army of purplish taupe cream shadows would be nice. And I’d love to flesh out my drugstore makeup collection until I had affordable versions of every single one of the basics — under-eye concealer, mascara, a black pencil liner, etc.
As for things I could definitely push the “Pause” button on…I have enough neutral eyeshadow palettes (ALL OF THE BROWNS!), nude lipsticks, face tints (BUT I LOVE THEM SO MUCH), coral gloss and olive eyeshadow. Oh, and brushes, because even though I always feel like I need the weirdly shaped ones, I don’t. I always end up using the same group of standby brushes over and over, haha!
Isn’t it funny (in a very expensive way) how no matter how long you’ve been “collecting” (hoarding?) makeup, and even after you think you’ve seen every possible color and packaging under the sun, you’ll see another bronze/teal/gold/whatever floats your boat, and suddenly it’s I MUST HAVE THAT LIKE RIGHT NOW!
It’s weird how that works, isn’t it?
What about you? What parts of your collection would you like to build up or trim down?
