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.

A little more than a hop, skip, and a jump away from DC. Chicago!

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.

    • Moisturizer is also the best gift for someone.  The best moisturizer helps to get rid of skin related ailments and dry skin problem. So, I advise to chose the best moisturizer from the available brands in the market.
    • Finally I found a like-minded person in this. It's cool, you can win big winnings and, moreover, without leaving the house. I have been playing play n go slots for a year now, this resource has long existed in the field of gambling and if you have questions, I will be happy to help you.
    • There are many reasons to moisturize your skin with best moisturizer.  Always chose your best moisturizer. Dermatologists always advise  to moisturize the skin as moisturizer reduces the skin problems and increase the moisture level of the stratum corneum. Dryness is removed by the  Moisturizer and it prevents skin from drying out. 
    • It was two years ago this weekend, that I started to get ready for my 2018 No Buy, and I've come such a long way! I recall on the Saturday night, two years ago, overeating pizza and watching a mukbang channel on You Tube. I remember waking up really early on the Sunday morning feeling ill. I was googling small meals and I found myself on a forum about bariatric surgery. I was reading posts about all the hard work people put in for that kind of surgery. This inspired me, and the next day I ate a small healthy meal, early in the day. I had an amazing sleep on the Sunday night. Amazing dreams. When I woke up, I had all this motivation to do a No Buy for 2018! I haven't changed my weight or eating since then, but I did make a lot of progress on my debt, which is more important to me. I began right away listing all my debts, organizing my beauty items, and using up a few little odds and ends. My goal was to pay off one debt a month in 2018, and this was my list:  Jan - credit card $27.32 Feb - credit card $42.93 Mar - credit card $76.98 April - IRS debt $102.04 May - credit card - $242.86 June - credit card - $398.01 July - credit card $442.61 August - credit card $629.43 Sept - credit card $725.55 Oct - credit card $761.90 Nov - credit card - $946.69 Dec - credit card $985.76 I ended up making it half the way through the list in 2018. This year, I got burned out and stopped working on my No Buy until June, when I finished the rest of this list along with two additional debts. All except for the $761.90 debt that I had wanted to pay off Oct 2018. That one has such a bad interest rate and little minimum payment, that many things moved ahead of it in the debt snowball program. That's why it will be so exciting to pay it off on Boxing Day!  I still have debts but far fewer. I was desperate to not have so many. As you can imagine, that was a lot of payments each month.    
    • Major beauty packaging companies decided to launch paper cosmetic tube for the consumers. These tubes are more eco-friendly.  This was  announced at  Luxe Pack Monaco. Major plastic part will be replaced with a bio-based, paper-like material.  Production is expected to start  in the mid of 2020. The replacement of plastics is environment friendly and  a cardboard-based tube will be a good achievement to save environment.
