Makeup Amnesia

Doing some spring cleaning and found some makeup items that I have totally forgotten about and also some that are very similar. I tend to buy things and forget about it and then buy another thinking I don't have this colour and oops I actually do!
As you can see, I like my khaki greens! Very similar to each other: MAC Sumptous Olive and a similar colour from Shu Uemura.
My blues and pinks! I don't know why I need so many variety but I have....

I think MAC's MSF Soft & Gentle and Benefit 10 is very similar.

Lipgloss collection plus more scattered in my various bags and such. All pinks, peaches and reds. I didn't realise it was this bad! ahaha

Red lippies.....I love collecting lipsticks!

My beiges and frosty colours....too many!
I also have many pink lipsticks- but can't be bothered unearthing all of them- its everywhere!
I also have more than 20 different foundations...and I only have one skin colour! But I love trying things out so it's a problem. I need help!
A friend informed me that there is a place I can give my unwanted cosmetics to...and make it into gift packs! Neat idea:)
Now it's time to make a donation and give it to someone who will love it and use it more than I do!

Hi Shelley! LOL Don't worry, that happens to most of us. I don't have too much money to spend so I really think when I buy something. I have everything organized at home so I know what I have, then when I'm at the counter and I'm like...do I really need this?
Not to say that I don't have a dozen of peachy pink lip colours, hehe.
Love the look you did with the red lips, they look *fabulous*!!!

lol - I think this happens to a lot of us! I try to review my collection every few weeks though, and every time I make a purchase to make sure I'm not buying the same things over and over again. It helps that I can see everything I have in one drawer though. Sounds like you need organizers! =P

Yeah, I have bad memory! I should really get organised. A new vanity table would help ALOT! Please petition for a new vanity table for me!!! My fiance is so stubborn!
