Beauty Spotlight Team – What’s in Marcia’s can???

It’s my turn to be the mystery blogger and have I got a lot to share. Lots of pictures, not as many words! What do you think I could possibly have in all these cans?

Another view

And now filled – to the brim

I’ve been collecting brushes for at least 16 years, if not longer. I keep my tall enough brushes in these cans so they are easily accessible (both to me and the dust!).

MAC Attack!!

More brushes (I love brushes as you’ll see!!)

Face brushes: more MAC, Trish McEvoy, Real Techniques, Smashbox, Dior, Prescriptives, Click It, Armani, Tarte, Scott Barnes, Shu Uemura, Japonesque  and others

Eyeshadow brushes

Shu Uemura, Beaute’, Trish, Armani,Who’s the Fairest, Sonia Kashuk, Armani, Kevyn Aucoin and the list goes on!

Cosmetics including lipliners galore, eyeshadow crayons, mascara and eyebrow goodies

How about Q-tips, liquid eyeliners and eyeliner pencils?

MAC, Bobbi Brown, Chantecaille, Tarte, Marcelle, Scott Barnes, IT Cosmetics, Mally, Face Atelier, Make Up For Ever ….

There they are – my (dirty) dozen. Can you say collector? Can you say overboard? Can you say how many cans didn’t Marcia share? Can you say “boy do I feel better about my collection after seeing this!!”?  Now you know what’s in the can with Marcia!



  1. Awesome post! I love getting a glimpse into people’s collections. I remember from the Vine how you love collecting these cans 🙂 xxx

  2. Thanks for letting me have a good long look at your cans Marcia! 😉

    Best, Lisamarie

  3. Nice Cans!

  4. Marcia, you have the most beautiful, overflowing cans I have ever seen. 😉

  5. Oh my, those are just lovely!! I collect Stila cans and I don’t have a couple of the ones you do. *covets* And a great collection of brushes too, of course!

  6. I envy your brush collection. Some day you’ll have to share the rest that I bet you are hiding.

  7. Holy Moly! Now that’s a collection :).

  8. Wow, what a phenomenal collection!!! I’m drooling!

    I Love seeing collections and yours is impressive.

  10. That’s a beautiful collection of Stila cans and makeup brushes! I remember when these cans would command high prices on Ebay.

  11. Great collection, you can never have enough brushes as far as I am concerned 🙂

  12. I’d love to see the brushes in detail. I love me some brushes!!

    I remember when the cans were super hot too. I didn’t buy any on ebay but I did swap for a few. Plus I made sure I bought any collection that featured a can. I have about 4 that aren’t shown actually that I keep in another room.

  14. beautyin says:

    I’ll show the ones I didn’t show someday. I have at least 4 others.

  15. beautyin says:

    Overflowing is the story of my life!!

  16. beautyin says:

    LOL, I can’t keep a secret! But I did keep the cans. They are the only “cutesie” item I allow myself.

  17. Totally my kind of cans! LOVE all the brushes…I collect them too!

  18. I must say how accessible this makes everything. Things get used so much for when you can see (and find) them. If only I had a surface to put a bunch of cans on!

  19. Wow! Amazing collection and nice cans! Haha. You must take great care of them! I like Mac brush cleaner…but am thinking I’d like to use something else. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  20. beautyin says:

    I mostly use MAC brush cleaner too but an amazing brush cleaner is Beauty So Clean. I especially like it for anything that I use that’s creamy. It cleans those kinds of brushes perfectly. I really need to review it one day.

  21. beautyin says:

    I love brushes (obviously) and like to switch them up although I find that MAC 217 gets used all the time!

  22. I love this post. What an amazing collection. Thanks for sharing, Mar!
