If you haven’t stopped by /r/makeuprehab, you might not be as well-acquainted with the idea of a “TMO’ or a “Talk Me Out” (see their FAQ), which is where there’s a product you want but is making you hesitate for one reason or another. The way this should work is for people to list a product they want to be talked out of and then others jump in and help talk them out of buying the item! ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s an example:

Talk Me Out of… Tarte Toasted Palette — it’s a bunch of warm neutrals, nothing we haven’t seen before, and I know I have 400 iterations of it released in the last year alone! (Well, this would work on someone that isn’t buying to review,
but hopefully, that illustrates the concept!)

Talk Me Out of: [item]
Why you’re hesitating: [your reasoning]

  • Haul: Fenty Beauty Galaxy Collection, NARS Love Triangles – if it’s not swatched on the blog yet, that means I haven’t had a chance to get to it – and I’m not comfortable giving an ETAs on swatches or reviews right now as I’m just so, so behind, sorry!

A post shared by Christine M. (@temptalia) on

I think that the “number” varies from person to person. Some people like a more minimalist approach to makeup and others enjoy a large stash with tons of options. As long as one can afford to purchase the products that they do without harming others, it’s probably not my business to make a judgment whether that’s too much (or too little).
