Memory! And I’ve only bought a double once…I thought Retrospeck looked oddly familiar. *lol* Exchanged it without a problem.

Memory, but i plan on making some sort of spreadsheet later on so that i don’t wind up with doubles of seldom used items. Although, there’s nothing wrong with stocking up on favorites (*glances at 3 Sweetie Cakes glosses, 2 Honesty e/s, 4 Strawberry Blonde lipsticks…….*)

Memory – most of the time. I have moved a lot temporarily and I list the stuff I take with me, just to make sure I don’t miss anything (a tad obsessive about some products…) when I move back home!

I have a spreadsheet that I update every time i make purchases or if a product runs out. I also have the purchase dates of all my products in there just so I don’t end up using a 5 year old lipglass or something lol

Well, I have an incomplete spreadsheet. I try to keep it updated, but I get lazy… I figure I’ll get around to it one day 🙂 So mostly by memory for now.

Memory for my make up, but I have considered doing a spreadsheet.. I have one for my nail polishes as I have far too many and they are loaned out often, so if I don’t know what I own, I would probably not even realise if several were missing!! I love OPI 😀

Spreadsheets.I don’t get lazy,I don’t get behind.Once you end up with two Bombshell lipsticks,you really don’t need a third one.For some reason I keep choosing same things….

i just started using a spreadsheet. dear god i had no idea my makeup collection was worth so much.

the spreadsheet also made me realize how many dupes i have of eyeshadows, but i never noticed til now bc they were all in different brands

Memory. I started a list of what I amassed through June, 2007, but have quit keeping track because my spending looks ridiculous on paper.

Memory for me! I would think that a spreadsheet would benefit me once my collection grows, but I try to keep mine small. Once, I got bored and started a list & description of my eyeshadows, but it wasn’t very thorough.
