How many foundations are too many?

Hey there,

One thing I have learnt over the couple of years that I have been blogging is that I am a complete hoarder of make up. Some things I'm not as bad for but one thing I'm terrible for hoarding is foundations.

As I have said in previous posts, I have been on a quest to find my holy grail foundations that are the right colour for me (#palefacedproblems) so over the years I've created quite a stash.

Yes that's right, I have two deep Muji drawers full of foundations. I have skilfully managed to seperate them into high street and high end. In the high street drawer, we have a mix of L'Oreal, Rimmel, Bourjois and Maxfactor. Some I have bought because I have liked the sound of them and I have loved them but others I have bought through hype and I have wished I haven't. Anyone else?

Then onto the next draw which is all of my high end foundations. For obvious reasons (price) I have put more research into before buying. In this drawer there is a mix of MAC, YSL, Giorgio Armani and NARS. I have my favourites in this drawer and there's a couple that I don't like so much as well. 

All in all, there's probably over ten foundations over two drawers, so I ask you... How many foundations are too many?

Lots of Love,

    1. Haha I'm glad I'm not the only person with a rather long collection x

  3. I'm pale like you (NC10 for reference!) and I've got 11 foundations at the moment. Only three of them are perfect colour matches tough I can use a lot of them if I blend or I'm going to a dark pub! Pale girl problems - I hear ya!

    1. I'm generally a NW10 and I struggle with the pink balance in most of my foundations. Pale girl problems are terrible problems to have x
