Collection as of January 2010

Oooh I hope I don’t live to regret making this post!

So, BY FAR my number one requested video to do is a collection video. If you’ve watched me for awhile, you know that in the past I haven’t exactly been the biggest fan of collection or haul videos, and the last time I did a collection video (June 2007, eesh! It’s grown.. a bit. hah) I got a TON of remarks on having too much, spending too much money, etc, etc.. and, quite honestly, that video has a small, itty bitty fraction of the amount of stuff I have acquired since!

Anyways, because it is my most requested video, and because I love you guys, I’m giving in. *deep breath* I’m not going to lay everything out and show every color because we would literally be here for years, but I will show you my set up, how I store everything and all the drawers of stuff (mind you, it’s not that neat)

Please don’t ask me “how much did all of that cost?” or any of that. I don’t know, and honestly, I didn’t buy all of it. A lot of the things you see were sent as samples or were bought at discounted prices (like the MAC).

Also, since this is my collection, I am showing you it just as it is. I didn’t bother to clean anything up in the drawers or what have you, you get to see it just as it looks when I open the drawer :) It’s an organized mess! haha.

Okay, enough disclaimer nonsense, on to the pics!

iPhoto
Here is my desk. This is where I film all my tutorials. The desk is from Ikea, Mirror is a light up one from Conair. Florescent Light is from Lowes I think, and the light I use is meant for kitchen and day (pretty sure!) Nail racks can be purchased from any nail site (my favorite is head2toebeauty. this is the 90 count rack.)

iPhoto
Close up of full desk.

iPhoto
Pigment Rack/ extra polishes.

iPhoto
Left side. MAC Palettes, Everyday powders, OCC airbrush minis, hand sanitizer, and a few Coastal Scents Palettes.

iPhoto
Right Side. Baby Wipes, Tripod for filming, brushes.

iPhoto
Closeup of brushes. This is a roundabout thing from Pampared Chef, it’s meant for kitchen tools but I LOVE it for my brushes!!

iPhoto
First Drawer Left side. I use silverware separates to hold my stuff. This is Kryolan, FaceFront, random MAC and other random things.

iPhoto
2nd drawer left side. MAC CCBs, Ben Nye, Fluidlines, Naked Pigments, more Kryolan, and other random stuff.

iPhoto
3rd drawer left side. MAC powders and skinfinishes, MUFE flash palette, random moisturizers and powders

iPhoto
4th drawer left side. Lip stuff, a whole mess of lip stuff that is totally unorganized (this is why I never know what to do for lip color, haha)

iPhoto
1st drawer right side. Eyeliners, Lipliners, Mascaras and Primers.

iPhoto
2nd drawer right side. Liquid liners and glitterliners, random NYX lipsticks.

iPhoto
3rd drawer right side. Loose powders, some primers, and a random eye makeup remover that shouldn’t be there.

iPhoto
4th drawer right side. Foundations and concealers.

iPhoto
5th drawer right side. random NYX double sided liners, some stuff I haven’t reviewed, and some full size OCC airbrush colors.

iPhoto
and finally, 6th drawer right side. Water Based palettes, ben nye, etc.

Ohmigosh, and were done! Well.. almost. I guess I could show you in the bookshelf behind me in my videos..

iPhoto
This has 6 spaces, but the bottom two were covered up :) Perfumes, Extra makeup, makeup I have no use having out all the time(different colored foundations, etc), candles, cases, blah blah blah

And (because I know it will be asked) a picture of my nail polishes:

Woo! All done :) Hope you enjoyed that! Now no more for another 2 1/2 years ;) haha just kidding!
I will have the video up for this tomorrow :)

    i see you have some Lime Crime lipsticks, you should definitely do a review! =)

    • Todd

      More than likely, those are actually MAC for Heatherette. Lime Crime’s design for their lipstick packaging just looks very similar.

    • Todd

      Oops, ignore me. I was heavily examining the wrong photo.

  • Allycat*

    i love your nail polish racks. i am addicted to nail polish.. what is the best way to keep your nail polishes so they do not get gooey and nasty? I have tried putting them in the fridge but that never seems to work for me. Also what is your fav brand of nail polish? it looks like you own a lot of China Glaze.. that is my fav brand to buy. thank you

    It’s too bad that you have gotten negative feedback in the past on how much product you have as well as how much you have spent on these products…it’s not their buisness and you sure aren’t hurting anyone! So getcha make up girl!!! =) That being said I also am a make up artist and use primarily MAC. I have almost as much as you but not quiet! I love watching your video’s and seeing all of your product! I would love to play in your make up!
