If you know me, you know that generally I am very organised. Until, that is, it comes to my makeup collection. I can store it very nicely, but then by the morning everything is upside down as I rummage around for what I want to use that day. I was after something easy to keep tidy, and such a blogger cliché I know, but I really did like the look of Muji. I was going to order it, but what's frustrating is on their website there are never more than 3 items in stock at one time and I wasn't going to go an epic journey to find a store. So, when on a shopping trip yesterday, I popped into 'Instore' (I think that's what it's called...) and generally, I hate that shop as I find it to all be really tacky, but as I was in there I thought I'd take a look at the storage. I'm glad I did!
I found a very posh looking brown leather effect set of 4 drawers. It was £11.99 from £19.99, which was such a bargain that I found myself skipping down to the checkouts and somehow, I managed to come home with it.
Above, you can see what they look like. I've stood them on my dressing table so it is super tall. Yes, I know, I need to dust that surface haha!
And here's what's on top. I have a small cream cup from QD stores holding all of my eye pencils, and then the typical blogger Ikea plant pot for my brushes. I also have a Lush 'Charity Pot' cream on top as well to fill the empty space!
Here's my first draw. I keep face products in this, so you can see my Lush toner, my moisturiser, primer, spot treatment cream, hand sanitizer, lash curlers, lip balm, foundations, a few cream highlighters and concealers. The little purple cup is from QD stores too.
Then the emptiest of my drawers is the second, which containers blushes and my powders. I hope this one will keep growing though, I adore cheek colours! I have all 3 Dainty Doll cream blushes as well as my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, a Topshop blush and an offering from Natural Collection. I can't believe I only own one Natural Collection blush, leave me a comment letting me know which one I should get next! The one I have is Sweet Cheeks.
Then, the eye drawer! I have everything from mascaras to palettes to mono shadows in here! You can see my one and only Mac eye shadow, Neo Nebula sitting pretty. Pfft, I so didn't purposely ensure it was at the top so everyone could see it....! I have 3 Maybelline Colour Tattoos which are firm favourites, as well as a couple of MUA shades and my new UD Naked Basics palette. You can also see a mini Benefit They're Real Mascara and Maybelline The Rocket too, both of which are great for my lashes.
Lastly, the lip drawer. This is mumbled jumbled mess if I'm honest, so I'm so sorry if the more OCD of you out there hate me for this!
I have a S&G Wowed Mouth palette which is beautiful but I kind of forget I have, some Revlon Balm Stains, Gosh Soft 'n' Shine Lip Balms and some randoms in here. But, I actually hardly ever wear a lip colour! There's also two Dainty Doll lippies and two Rimmel hiding somewhere as well, some of my favourites.
I forgot to mention, the drawers are very deep and fit a lot in them, and for reference my Simple Light Moisturiser just fits comfortable inside the drawers so hopefully you get a bit of an idea to how big that is!
So, there was my makeup collection/storage!
I hope you enjoyed that, sorry it wasn't so detailed but I'm not sure really what else to say!
Thank you all so much for reading, come back again soon!
