Wishlist Wednesday

as a huge makeup collector (that's all i really do, i don't wear makeup much) i need a place to store my makeup and since i live in a small apartment (1,050 sq ft) i need to utilize every foot as much as possible. fyi - my husband despises my clutter, he doesn't seem to mind his so much, LOL.  i currently have a very sad attempt at organization and quite ugly, i have a plastic 3 drawer organizer (15 inches wide, 15 inches tall, 18 inches deep). it's huge but since it's plastic with strange curves, all the space isn't utilized at it's maximum potential and since the drawers are so heavy when i open a drawer it wants to sag and fall out of the container, no bueno. i also have a spinning makeup organizer on my bathroom counter that i find ugly now. it's called the Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer, sold by QVC. that's where all my foundations, concealers, primers and favorite lipsticks go. but having that organizer and the big 3 drawer plastic one on my bathroom counter is just overwhelming and ugly.

since my injury i haven't been able to put away laundry, do dishes or clean very much. i was feeling pretty down b/c of that so i did some youtubin for about 30 minutes as i was at home sick yesterday and saw this and fell in love!! it looks like the answer to my dreams *sigh*

it's called the Acrylic Makeup Cube and it sells for $175, i would personally need to purchase two. for that reason i will have to hold off on making this sort of purchase until I get around to selling a lot! i have a lot of makeup that i bought and thought would work for me...and turns out is the wrong shade or formula for my skin. i also have designer handbags that just aren't getting any love, time to purge! i personally wished i had a bedroom large enough for a vanity and i wished i wasn't such a packrat so that if i ever did get a vanity it would look decent and not a hot mess. anyways, if you want to order, the link is below.

What do you use for makeup storage, do you have a considerable amount of makeup that would justify a storage piece this large?

those clear acrylic storage containers are my favorite, they are just too expensive so I won't be purchasing them. I've been using the sterilite (sp?) from target to store my makeup. They work well, just not as pretty as these :P

Great blog! I'm looking for a make-up organizer as well. I don't have as much as you though, so something small would work for me. Let me know if anybody suggests anything good. xoxo, nat said...

I've been trying to find a reasonably priced makeup storage idea but I havent found anything yet! Those acrylic cubes would be good but so expensive!

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

ellinelle - haha, you're a lucky girl! thank you!!

Eugenia - i hear you girl, i am still on the lookout for a cheaper option! i'll post it if i ever do come across one :)

ha i first heard of clear cube from keeping up with the kardashians....i don't think i could justify an acrylic container that expensive....i think this other brand muji makes a much cheaper alternative. they are always sold out online though :(

LauraMck said...

I would love one of these have too much makeup ..and have like literally no storage 4 it!!!
