Beauty: Buying Products I Don't Need

Today I am taking a little break from my weekly music favorite to have a little chat about a trend that we all know exist in the blogging world: buying things we don't need. I get it, I get inspired to buy more and more things nowadays because I get so excited to review them on my blog. I also think farther down the line when a PR company will look at my blog and consider me for a sample. Blogging has a lot of nice incentives, but...
What do we do with all the products we buy? There's not enough space on our face to put all the products we own. Packing on all the cosmetics will only make our pores clogged and then we'd end up being unhappy with the person looking back at us in the mirror.
It might be useful to know, I don't have a big collection. I want so try so many different cosmetics and skincare out there, but first, I don't have the money, and second, I can't use them all up in time before they expire. A tube or bottle of foundation lasts me almost a year, if not more. I own two BB creams and one foundation plus a bunch of samples. That in itself is a lot and I feel bad buying any more.
I guess what I'm saying is, I feel it's a bit wasteful... okay, a lot wasteful. So many people end up throwing half of their "collection" because they just end up gathering dust and expiring. Maybe it's just me being a penny pincher (is that what it's called?), but the money we used to buy the products we use a few times and throw away could feed at least one child in a starving country. Am I taking this too far? Does this make me a bad blogger?
