First, my traincase:





I think the estimated cost of all of the makeup in here is about 800.00 or so.

There is more makeup here:



The two makeup bags in the back have more in them. At least 250 to 300 dollars here. Probably more, actually.

Under the bathroom sink. The whole right side is my haircare stuff.



The previous is probably the worst of it. The rest is this stuff:

I had to remove these images. Will post as a comment


I think there is one basked of lotions and sunscreens that I missed. When you have this much stuff it gets hard to keep track.

You can clearly see excess here! Some of it might be okay (Shampoos and stuff) but things like sunscreen and some cosmetics have a definite shelf life. I haven't dipped into all of it except for most of the makeup that is powder consistency so a lot of it has not been contaminated yet.

This type of spending is my biggest problem at this point. I am not buying again until I use something up. Most of this was retail therapy and while I enjoy all of it and *hate* to run out of stuff, this is a bit ridiculous!

So lets see how I do! I will take stash pictures again in maybe 6 months and again in a year.

    Oh my. I see what you mean. But some of things made me drool. Once you have children stuff like this is the first to go, and I do miss some of it LOL.

    Not true hollyhill. I have maryK and tons of stuff like this. Retiring dealers sell this stuff for pennies at Garage Sales. You just have to be more clever once you have kids.

    Use to be my downfall as well. Not anymore! I used it all up and now it is down to one item for each job and I don't buy again until I need it or the price is too good to pass up. Looking forward to the pics in a few months!

    And Mary Kay is some really good stuff! Their Classic Basic skin care and foundation is amazing.
