Lol! I seriously wish I could have nail parties all the time. I'd get so much more swatching done! And that's not bad at all. I think it's a natural reaction, actually.

so I went through and quickly(this means its probably not ALL counted) counted my stash, this isn't counting all the products that I gave to my mom, nor is it counting samples, or things that aren't in current rotation.

 

here we go:

14 blushs

12 bronzers

2 highlighters

6 concealers

5 pairs of eyelashes

10 individual lashes

5 setting powders

4 setting sprays

6 foundations

3 BB creams

3 face primers

12 mascaras

5 eyebrow pencils/kits

8 eyeshadow primers

12 eyeshadow pencils

10 eyeliners

65 brushes

22 palettes varying 6-144 shadows per palette

9 creme shadows

6 loose pigments

15 individual shadows

20 lip balms

39 lip glosses

1 lip primer/liner

2 lip plumpers

16 lip products in a tube but aren't lipstick(Revlon Lip Butters and Maybelline Color Whispers)

4 lip stains

3 matte lip colors

13 perfumes

20 lotions

 

and its been awhile since I counted my polishes, but we'll say ~200)

theyre just so horrible. sticky and goopy and heavy. I think I keep buying them because so many people love them, there has to be something good about it!! but there never is. now I will say that there is one brand of lip gloss that I love, its not sticky, not heavy very nice colors. but its $26 a tube.... :( so not worth it.

I haven't had any dry up yet, except for some crackles. I just thinned them, and they were fine. :)

I have a desk made from 4 3-drawer cubes, which is where I store most of my polish. This is a really bad picture, but you can kind of see the drawers and how my desk is set up: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v653/LolitaBee/41a63dc8.jpg 

 

The rest of my stash is in 2 Ikea Helmers

I need to do a nail polish haul.

My top three favorites are Deborah Lippmann, Illamasqua, and Dior. They all have great formulas (for the most part) and beautiful colors.

Hmm...don't really have any suggestions then...most of my glosses are from B&BW. I can't get enough of them! I think they're the least sticky glosses available. At least the C.O. Bigelow mentha ones. I think I only have 1 of the "Liplicious" ones, but I know I don't like it much...I don't even know where it is which means something since I keep my main glosses in my purse!!

On the lipgloss sticky subject... Covergirl Wetslicks feels like a lipstick on. Not sticky at all. It is the only lipgloss I'll wear due to everything being nasty and sticky feeling.

    • You are a very thoughtful husband. I'm not an expert on makeup. But I love shopping. I was impressed with Sisley brushes, which are made by Raphael. Raphael has been a master maker of brushes for artists since 1793. The big department stores will give you an extra gift with purchase now too. For example, if you buy from Neiman Marcus, you can get a nice bag filled with beauty samples for free. That's what I would do.  I also love Trinny London. The T Kit is very unique, compact and great for travel or purse. Estee Lauder has a beautiful limited edition set called Brushed by Fame. The lovely white marble design might look pretty with your bathroom decor.  Good luck with your purchase!

    • Hi, I am looking for a birthday gift for my wife, who loves high-end makeup brushes. Would appreciate suggestions of good brands, styles, etc... so I won’t have do make a purchase in the dark lol. Budget is $150-$300. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
    • Indeed, the idea of this application is very original and should be convenient. The only thing I would not want to see is a perishable advertisement, which simply makes the use of many applications unbearable. If on a PC I can use an ad blocker, then on a phone or tablet it will be a little more complicated.
