Stocktake 2017- Eyes Part 2

I am so obsessed with eye shadow palettes, I decided that they deserved a post of their own.

Ok, here goes, I'll begin with photos of mixed brands.





These palettes are palettes that I have created, brands being Makeup Geek, JD Glow Cosmetics, MBA Cosmetics, Venemous Cosmetics. The black palettes are loose pigments that I have pressed.


MUA Cosmetics, 2 of them being palettes I made out of CD cases and filled with single pressed eye shadows.


Sleek eye shadow palettes.



BH Cosmetics palettes



Makeup Revolution palettes, including my obsession with their I Heart Chocolate palettes.


...and last but not least my Urban Decay eye shadow palettes.

Ok, it seems that I have a problem when it comes to eye shadow palettes. They are my vice, but they make me happy. I love to pull them all out and admire them from time to time. Is that weird?

In 2015 I had 127 palettes, I now have 96. It's still a considerable amount but I only want to keep the palettes that I love. Mind you, there's still plenty that I have only swatched and not tried on my lids. I plan to change that. What I don't plan on doing is not buying any more. 

Speaking of makeup, what is your obsession?

  1. Ha, mine (as you may know) is collecting nail polish. I too just like to stare longingly at my stash & my swatches from time to time....and also go browsing online for more polishes to add to my wishlist. It's terrible since I only wear the stuff when I cba painting (I haven't painted them for weeks since tearing one of my nails :o() + I have a whole bunch of others still waiting to be opened, but I can't help but want all the pretties!

  2. I have the essence Vampires Love Palette that you have in your first pic. I dont know how many palettes i have but no where near as many as you have. I do have a lot of singles and duos and a few trios. I love my eye shadows and always feel naked if my eyes are not done....so no matter what they are done daily and if not its a sign that im seriously sick...LOL

  6. Oh man, I thought my 20-something eyeshadow palette collection was a bit much. My weakness is LIPSTICKS. I probably have a few hundred of them (no shame...sorta).
