I admit, I buy backups of a lot of things... shampoo, conditioner, face products, body wash, body creams, lipsticks, lipgloss, nail polish, etc...
But I have come to realise some items I use a lot quicker than others!! I have only ever fully finished like 1 or 2 tubes of lipstick.. and lipgloss? Never! I lose them or they get that funky plastic smell before I use a whole tube!! Nail polish? Yes! Shampoo? Tons! Conditioners! Same! Etc...
I think I need to stop buying backups of things I do not use up too quickly..
Temptalia has this post up and I found the following remarks interesting, when asked the following question (please note that all text written in italics were quoted and I have referenced them in the Temptalia link, all opinions experessed are of their rightful owners and no infringment is meant. Thank you.)
What products do you have backups of?
* Miss Silver
just about everything. I have obsessive compulsive tendencies… or was it obsessive compulsive disorder? But I have to have two of just about most of everything that I have. It’s a terrible affliction. And since make up is so pretty, and I hate it when they discontinue a product, I just buy two of just about anything I buy. It sounds silly, I know, but that’s just my tick. :P I must sound pretty crazy.
I’m just like you Miss Silver… it warms up my heart to see I’m not the only one to do that :)
I don’t own any back-ups since I lose interest in products quite fast and so it would be a waste of money in the end :) Plus I can own more different producst, because I’m not spending my money on back-ups :) The only thing I’d consider buying back-ups of would be MSFs, but they last forever anyway….:)
I don’t own any backups. ^_^ I always think that there is something better right around the corner, so what’s the point?
That is my philosophy as well. I really can’t afford to get uber-obsessed with a product…it could break both my heart and my wallet.
Me neither and I reason the same way!
I don’t own any backups of anything I don’t ever end up finishing my makeup so I don’t see the point..the marine life I barely even touch it it was only the hype..I own jazzed I haven’t even used it..there’s no point.
I don’t think I have backups of anything. It usually takes me so long to finish a product that I’m content just to have one.
The only things I back up on are the things I use daily, like my mascara’s. I have backups of Maybelline’s Volum’Express, I have backups of eyeliner pencils and I have backups of my trusty Maybelline concealer. (it’s discontinued now)
I just like buying and trying new stuff, especially eyeshadows, lipsticks and glosses so I don’t backup them. When I’m out, I just have another good reason to go shopping again!
Haha you might think i’m crazy! I have an anxiety if i don’t buy two things of each.
Too many to count actually.
Whenever I buy a product and I like it, I would go back and two or 3 immediately and stock them in my special drawer. I pre-order certain lipsticks two, three at a time just to make sure I don’t run out!
Usually lipsticks, eye shadows and blushers. Never mascara or foundation.
I don’t have any backups. By the time I finish a product, something new will be out!!!
NOTHING. I don’t believe in back-ups.
What about you? Do you buy backups? What of?
