Hello, I’m the Muse and I’m recovering pigment collector who’s in remission for nearly 10 years now. Yeah, I use to hoard pigments. I think maybe at this point in my makeup life I have enough pigments that I can maybe combing with a mixing medium and create shimmery bricks which in turn can be used to build a sparkly little cottage on a English hill somewhere overlooking the ocean.
What Makeup and Beauty Are You Hoarding?
I think makeup junkies are perhaps natural hoarders. We like something and automatically we need to own it in EVERY SINGLE SHADE EVER CREATED! ASAP! Oh dear, you can sit and shake your head mentally and tell yourself you are not that girl or guy but deep down you know you kinda are. Some people have a better handle on it than others but 99% of us just hoard makeup like the factories will burn down tomorrow and never create a color cosmetic again ever.
Who knows where our weird mentality comes from.
I’ve improved over the years that’s for sure. I’ve finally figured out I don’t absolutely need every single shade of brown eyeshadow ever made. I also downsize a lot and give away lots of makeup, etc…!
I do however, still have my hoarding tendencies. For example, Bath & Body Works Candles and Hand Soaps are two items I have hard time giving up! I won’t disclose the exact amount of candles and hand soaps I have but just know when the apocalypse hits you can come over my place and we’ll always have plenty of light from beautifully scented candles and plenty of hand soap to wash away zombie guts!
