When I first started buying makeup, I bought more back-ups, but after realizing that I never finish anything and there is always something newer and more interesting on the horizon, I am pretty good about now doing so. There are only a few exceptional products that I have bought back-ups for in the past few years, and they’ve been holy grail shades for me (two that I can remember are Guerlain Gems and Chanel Dragon).
