Do you collect makeup?

First off i own more makeup than i will ever use in my life time. I really shouldn't purchase anymore, but of course i still do. My question is do you buy makeup to use or to just collect it? I am always on Specktra looking at the new MAC collections coming out, peoples "hauls" and the traincase section is always fun to look at. I am always amazed at how much makeup other women have. I serioulsy use to think i had to much makeup (i really do) but then I saw what other people had and then realized i didn't have much when comparing to others. I guess i see myself as having to much because out of my friends and family i am the only one that is really into makeup.
When i buy a new product i buy it to use and then usually it gets put in a drawer and forgotten about. I have been getting a lot better. I have stopped buying the same colors over and over again and i am using new colors everyday. I want to use all of my beautiful makeup, instead of it just collecting dust on my vanity.

Ohhhhh Jen... Do I ever collect makeup!!! Case in point, I got some NYX Cream Blushes from Sara The Makeup Snob and I am addicted! Now I could just enjoy the products I have but now I am already planning on how to get my hands on all the other shades in the collection!

I am terrible for skin care also. I have a "thing" about it all matching so I go out and collect the whole range!

It really is a form of addiction... I get buyers guilt and everything!

I collect and use or try to use what I have. I do admit I love the thrill of acquiring new goodies. I've been trying to curb my buying but not doing a good job. I have started giving away some unused items to my sister. ;-)
