I need a shopping intervention

Tonight i did a quick inventory and seriously, I have about 400 (just a guesstimate) items on my makeup table including about 30 things that are unopened. Some of what I own are samples, some were gifts, but most I bought myself. Then I have other tools, toiletries, hair stuff, bath / shower stuff in my bathroom. I estimate about 100 items.
I think there's something wrong with me!!! No one needs that much stuff. Ànd, I just keep buying more! Something new is always being touted as the next best thing or the latest must have. I'm attracted to the packaging and fun names, colors, ingredients and promises (especially things that help dark circles, dry skin and dry hair). I need to learn how to say no to myself.
I have items of all price ranges but I have a particularly hard time saying no to sales. Even if I don't need the product. I just can't leave it there. Omg, then there's the containers, makeup holders and organizers and travel kits, mirrors, lightening...
Then if you count my wigs, clip in extensions and ponytails. My god i even have about 10 pairs of reusable Eyelashes. I am shuddering to think of the cost of this. That's it, I need to seriously not buy anything else for a long time. Instead I should be rating them on this site! Now that I've "said" it out loud I feel really lousy about it...
Does anyone else have this problem?
I think the only thing I have under control is perfume: meow by Katy Perry, black opium by YSL and Chanel No.5
Ps - I am being serious about this. I need to make some major changes. I just counted and I have 16 brow products. 16!!!!! I only have two eyebrows! I feel sick...

I wish I had that much. I have a habit of not getting rid of old make up
