Hands up – who else loves storage and organisation as much as me? When it comes to my makeup stash, everything has it’s place and I am more than happy to waste an afternoon more like entire day reorganising my makeup draws and giving everything a home. Gotta take pride in where it all lives right! Well at least that is what I tell myself ;)
Whilst cleaning up my desk the other day I pondered over my increasingly large Muji storage setup for my lip products. I know, a setup just for my lip products. Seems excessive but I’m one of those people that likes to see everything all at once otherwise those buried items get completely forgotten about. It’s that simple, if I can see it I want to use it. Can’t see or have to dig around for it? Might as well not be there!
In a bid to house my expanding collection whilst ensuring everything remained neat and in eyesight, I added an additional Muji Acrylic Wide Draw into the mix. All of these units are individual draws that I’ve stacked up as the collection grows. The only different piece is where my MAC lipsticks live, sadly I can’t find this online but it’s the wide tray with inserts and perfectly holds three MAC lipsticks in each section.
When it comes to how it’s organised I’ve got a bit of an order going on. Starting at the bottom we have extra lip pencils, newbie lipsticks and a couple of drugstore glosses, the most random of the bunch this is my ‘overspill’ draw. Next up is my fav tray, my beloved lipstick pencils. Oh boy do I love these and yes, I am aware I can’t buy anymore as the tray is full! Just below the top you will find my MAC lipsticks alongside a few others that also fit in the slots! Finally at the top is my palette draw, one from MAC & one Z Palette alongside a couple of pens and sticky notes for when rocking an intense smokey eye.
It’s a lot. I know. Buuuuuuut it’s all so pretty and all oh so necessary to keep! Would love to know how you organise your lipsticks and how you reach for your favourites :) Also if you want to know more about any of the products shown above just let me know!
