New In! | Acrylic Makeup Storage Box

TGIF Peeps!

If you remember my pretty Cath Kidston makeup storage that I had in my dressing table post here, well it was coming to end of life. The drawers were literally splitting at the sides under the weight of all that makeup considering it’s made of cardboard.

So I had been wondering where on earth I was going to get good makeup storage around these ends when my friend Ez over at BeautyinLagos let me know that she was selling acrylic makeup storage boxes! Talk about a miracle! I had been eyeing the ones from Muji for the longest time but it was kind of impossible to ship them with me to Nigeria when I moved back because they are breakable and all that jazz. But look, the ones I got from Ez are amazing! Bigger and Better than the Muji ones if you ask me 🙂

It’s got a top bit that has numerous compartments for storing lipsticks, foundations, makeup brushes, pencils and lots more. It has really helped to make room on my dressing table by holding stuff that would otherwise have been laying about.

Lipsticks, Foundations, Concealers, Highlighter, Fix +, Brushes…

Then you have three decent sized drawers and one large one to store all your makeup in. I love that they are clear so you can easily see what is where without having to turn everything over. It’s also perfect for finding Mac lipsticks in your stash which can be likened to finding a needle in a haystack..thanks Mac *coughs*


Eye products..

Blushers and Bronzers
Eyeshadow palettes, Powders, more Concealers and other stuff 

This acrylic storage box has a special place in my heart because it’s effective for keeping all my makeup together and making them easily accessible.  As an added advantage it beautifies my dressing table :).

 Get if whilst it’s still on offer for 15,000 naira here!

Peace and Love,

    O jeez, Barbara when are you going to get organised with your personal makeup? I adore acrylic boxes and love looking at peoples' storage ideas but never ever get round to doing mine unless of course it is my professional kit. That is always spick and span. *sigh* o well, one day I guess. This is lovely Yewande.
    P.S. where did you disappear to? Tried calling, texting and even twitter mentions.
