Ideal Make-Up Collection Size

I'm on a mission to decrease the size of my collection and get rid of products I'm not thrilled with (and trying to be a tad more minimalist). In my last post, "What's In My Stash? Part 1: Make-Up Collection", I counted every product I currently have in my make-up collection. Needless to say, I won't be running out of anything soon. As you can see from the data below, there are some areas that I'm fairly happy with, and others that need a lot of work. 

What's your ideal make-up collection size?


  1. Oh this is great! I'm going to be doing a destashing project next year, I'll be aiming to end up with a small collection of products that I love. I haven't counted everything yet, it's a task that I'm not looking forward to at all!

    1. I guarantee I'll still be working on this next year so let me know when you start!

  2. Great blog♥

    How about follow each other?
    I follow your blog. Waiting for you♥

  3. The quantity of products you have it, is that I measure myself more when you buy, because knowing the expiration date I like to have the right to use.

    Very good plan you have, greetings

    1. Yes, I'm trying to change that so I don't have items that will go bad.

  6. Love this! What a good idea to see exactly what you have and where you want to get to x

  7. I really can not wrap my head around what my ideal numbers would be. I like choice, I like different colors and I like having this on hand. However, if I were forced like on an episode of hoarders then I would say about 15 eyeshadows, 30 lipsticks, 2 foundation, 10 blushes , 5 lipliners and 1 primer.

  8.´s realy impressive!! I have so few products and i´m very satisfied with them. I really can´t imagine myself with 30 lipsticks (i have only 2 and i´m trying to finish them) you really need all of them??
    Anyway, i found your blog really interesting and i'm looking forward to see your progress.
