Updated Mujis (Makeup Storage) Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek at my current set up.

I am hoping that 4 - 5 drawers
and 2 - 2 drawers will be enough
to contain my collection.  One of the
two drawers has a hinged lid.
I opted to have that as I did not want
to have my foundations laying flat.
I am working to use what I have
and not acquire much else.
I do have separate storage for most of
my larger eyeshadow palettes.

I purchased the units over several months from .
I am thrilled with the quality of the craftsmanship.
The sleek simple design compliments any decor.
Stay tuned for a breakdown of the drawers soon.
Have you purchased any of these types of systems? What is your setup like?

Maybelline 24hr Tattoo Eyeshadows - With Swatches

A fellow makeup enthusiast called me while I was getting dressed for work one day last week.

I assured her that I was going to search for these products on my way to work.

I was surprised to see that there was a display in my local CVS.

I purchased a few of them. The display had been hit hard by previous shoppers.

I visited a couple more CVS stores and found two more colors. I still am on the hunt for
Pomegranate, Taupe and Fierce and Tangy.

I plan to use these as secondary eyeshadow bases.

Have you seen these in your local area?

Have you purchased any?

Muji Acrylic Drawers

After months of having been out of stock, I was finally able to get my hands on a few of these drawers.

I am still in the process of converting my collection over to this system.

The five drawer stack is available for $27.50

The two drawer stack is available for $25.25

I am still going to buy a two drawer with lid, as my Make Up For Ever HD Foundation will not fit in the drawer. The drawer just wouldn't close.

The packaging was excellent.
The quality of the acrylic is very fine. It is sturdy and of good construction.  All of the units arrived in perfect condition. The shipping time was within one week of my having placed the order. I am looking forward to purchasing additional units. If you are interested in purchasing the units, here is the the link

Here is a sneak peek into some of the newer organization.

Have you invested in these storage systems?

The VALUE of Shopping your Stash

For the past five years, I have been an avid makeup/beauty shopper.

There comes a point where eventually, you acquire enough products.
You find out what works for you and what does not.
You find new homes for the things that no longer work for you.
I have friends who are new to the world of makeup who readily accept
my sanitized makeup hand me downs.
I know what I love and what I cannot live without.
How many times can we dupe colors by the same vendor?

My There are still a few items on my Makeup Wish List.
Yes, I will still occasionally try out new products.
However, my goal for 2012 will be to shop my stash.
I will finish changing over my storage from Rubbermaid/Sterilite plastics
to Muji acrylics.
My main reason for this decision is focusing on more substantive things
Have you ever put yourself on a makeup no buy?
