Hello my gorgeous people. I have successfully managed to not get sucked into the Candy Crush craze (if that’s still even a thing). I did enjoy Words with Friends, Song Pop – any game that had interaction with others. My new thing is Trivia Crack. My husband’s work people are notorious for finding the new “it” game. So, in my spare time, you can find me playing trivia against my friends. If you play, leave me your user name or come find me! If you don’t play, and you like trivia, definitely download it onto your phone! It’s a lot of fun.
I had been on a hunt for more acrylic makeup storage. Namely, to hold my foundations. They were all in the top drawer of my Alex unit, laying flat and settling in weird ways. I wanted something tall enough to accommodate my bottles in an upright position, but with a lid. I LOVE my Muji storage, so I checked there first. No dice.
Then, I was in Marshalls, and happened upon a huge selection of acrylic makeup/vanity storage. And they had the PERFECT thing!
Ta-Da! I picked up two of them. And the price?
Can’t beat that! I also picked up a couple of other pieces.
This guy has four separate compartments, and a lid! I will put the smaller things from my current rotation like lashes, glue, primers, etc in there. It’s also the perfect size to fit a couple ColourPop shadows in each section.
Not bad at all.
The reason I like “enclosed” storage (like Muji, and stuff with lids) is because I hate having to dust/clean each individual item, as well as the inside of the open container. Plus, my kitties are always underfoot in my bathroom, and cat hair would get all into it. I would love to keep my makeup brushes out on my counter, but have to keep them in the cabinet under the sink to avoid feline fluff.
The last piece I got is open.
This is perfect for storing palettes. This will get chucked in the cabinet also, but at least everything will be in one place.
And here is my cube filled. The BECCA full coverage was a touch too tall, but it worked just fine leaning it over. Now I can have my foundations out and within easy reach.
Do you use acrylic storage? What is your favorite?
Thanks for reading! xoxo
