I have been slacking as of late - It's hot, I've been working 10+ hours a day and I just didn't have anything that exciting to share. But I got a few goodies in the mail this week and this is one of them!
A much needed lipstick organizer! I actually ordered 2 - and I know they will be quickly filled. I am way more apt to use things that I see, so I needed to get my lippies out and ready to go. I got it on ebay by just searching for lipstick organizer - and you get tons of results like THIS! (Please always check out the feedback from any seller you buy from!) Mine came from Hong Kong and were $3.99 + free shipping, so if they were total crap it was no big loss :) Now the acrylic is not as thick or as nicely "rounded" as the ones you can get at the Container Store - but it's also like a third of the price and it's going to go in my ALEX unit so only I will see it.
Here you can see it from up top and straight on - pretty much every brand fits in there (I have MAC, Avon, NYX, Maybelline Wetn'Wild and Lancôme in the front row) Flower by Drew Barrymore is the only brand I had I couldn't get in there. Second row on the far right is one by Sephora and it barely fit - so I hope that helps if you are wondering about your collection!
I also have hem sorted by Matte's and then crème reds, then neutrals etc...
And as you can see it fits nicely in my ALEX (in the deep drawers- the height when filled with lipsticks is too tall for the short drawers, but I have some "taller" lipsticks in there, if I only put in regular size ones it might work).
I also read this article on Beautylish today about cleaning your makeup and I couldn't agree more! Check it out Here - now they have a fancy spray - I just clean my lipsticks with rubbing alcohol.
What's your favorite way to keep your beauty bits organized?
