Hey all! You’ll notice in the previous two posts, there are still photos of both my MAC and non-MAC stashes. I also uploaded two videos to coincide with the still photos, too. I’ve been hit with a nice bout of allergies today, so my voice may sound a bit gritty (well, grittier than usual).

    Loved the videos. And also hearing your voice! How do you donate your make-up to battered women? I’d also like to do that.

    • Thanks, Millie! Arghhh, I hate my voice so bad. I can’t even listen to it when editing videos!

      I just looked up my local shelter and checked out their donation list. You should be able to do the same, and if they don’t list it online, definitely give them a call and ask.

    Wow you are my idol!!!

  5. Oh my!..i thought i had a lot..if it’s not too personal to ask, how are you able to afford so much MU?..just curious..you don’t have to answer if you don’t want to..:)

    • Hey Mandi! I have been “collecting” for years now, so it’s something that has grown over a good period of time, not in a month or anything. I’ve only had to start paying my own bills this past year, and prior to that, my parents covered all of my expenses except things like makeup and clothes. So when I was working, I could spend all of my money on makeup, y’know? Easy when you don’t have rent to worry about!

      • lol..i started collecting November of last year..and i get what you say, it grows over a period of time, even a short one..lol..and yea i’m kinda lucky that the only bill i have to take care right now is my phone bill..:)..

    VERY nice collection! I’m so jealous!

  7. Jay

    Wow – a post and YouTube videos from the future!

    Nice collection :)

  8. Wow!!! Okay I’m officially jealous!! Seriously, that’s a awesome collection. I’m slowly building mine up.

  9. Wow! I need to show my hubby these videos…he thinks I have a TON of stuff…but compared to you, I have NOTHING! I like to keep all of my stuff segmented and organized too, otherwise it would be out of control!

  10. I looked at your video and immediately felt better. My friends give me the business about my makeup collection. UGH…they just don’t understand it is addictive.

  11. OMG that is crazy lol. I am at work so I had to watch that with the sound off but that is the biggest makeup stash I have ever seen!

  12. DaniMae

    I am soooooooooooo jealous!

    What an amazing collection. I need to stock up!

  13. Val

    I really need to show my husband these videos. He is always complaining about my collection, and about how I have similar colors. I understand he’s a guy and truly doesn’t understand the addiction! You have a fabulous collection that many MAC counters would be envious of!

  14. Wow and I thought I had a lot of stuff !!!

  15. Angi

    Nice. I love your storage containers. But I was wondering, where do you store them? I’ve yet to find a good location to store my stuff so I’m always looking for ideas.

  16. Paloma

    I heard in one of your videos that you donate some of your stuff to friends, family, and shelters…I just wanted to let you know….the main reason why I am always replying saying that the stuff is so expensive and I only have like 2 or 3 MAC products, everything else being low end drug store stuff, is because I am a single stay at home mother (of one little girl, Regina, who has Down Syndrome. She is gorgeous and so very strong, as she has endured a heart surgery in March of this year and is about to go in on the 28th for an ear surgery.) looking for work as well as a new place to live. Recently one of my roommates assaulted me, and that solidifies my need to find somewhere else. I cannot afford about 98% of the stuff that you review, and would LOVE if you would consider me if you ever do donate again. I don’t want to sound like I’m begging or anything, but I’m not ashamed to take donations. Sorry to have bothered you with all of this 😡

    • Paloma

      forgot to set it so it would notify me if you replied…correcting.

    • Hi Paloma,

      I’m so sad to hear about your circumstances, and I hope that 2010 will bring you a much brighter and happier year. Best wishes to your daughter for her upcoming surgery and to a speedy recovery!
