This or that: Collector or Minimalist?

Of course I love cosmetics! A few years ago I was pretty close to collect them, because I didn’t even finish one facial cream but I had to buy a next one. The same with bath stuff, make-up and so on. I could have easily opened a little shop!

collector or minimalist

For right now, though, I can control myself and I’m slowly becoming minimalist I guess. How about you? - Asia

      I’m definitely more of a minimalist. As much as I love fashion and clothes, I’ve oddly enough never been one for cosmetics. I usually wear eyeliner, mascara, a little concealer, and that’s it! I’m actually more into cream and lotion than anything else, haha. Which gets me thinking… I should probably do a ‘what’s in my cosmetics bag’ post sometime soon :) – Micaela

    2. Eeeekk! (excuse that, that was my excited squeal) I love your blog! I always look forward to finding new great blogs. Thanks a bunch for commenting on my blog! (I kinda sorta said blog too much. Oh well hahaha)

      I am a minimalist: face wash, toothbrush + paste, mascara, roll on, razor.

      I am trying desperately to just use up what I have…I have wayy to much cosmetics, body sprays, and shower gels…It feels so good to throw out an empty container!!! I guess I’m turning into a minimalist!! AHH!!!

    5. I like to think that I’m a minimalist but if we’re being honest here I’m on the brink of being a collector (:

      I would love to be a collector! I use to be a collector! But time, money, and space has brought me to a minimalist stand point :( Some day maybe……..

      I am all the way a minimalist. We move too much and I get too OCD having more than I need, but that always means that I usually don’t have what I need sometimes :) I love your blog, especially all the vintage finds. New follower!

        You and me both :) I have a weird OCD thing and get overwhelmed by having too much that I can’t use it all too. And thank you for the comment, glad to hear :)

      Definitely a minimalist. I like the idea of collecting, but I just can’t stand clutter.

    9. [...] by this week‘s This or That column, I’ve decided to do a ‘what’s in my cosmetics [...]

      I’m somewhere in the middle. I want to become a minimalist, but I have a colorful soul and love to have different shades of cosmetics to try. I also keep searching for that one product that will be my standard (like concealer and mascara) So I keep buying different ones to try them out.
