Makeup Storage // Muji - June 2012

My new storage arrived before I left this morning and I'm extremely happy with it. Who knew I could get so excited about makeup storage. My old storage from WH Smith was breaking and I wasn't overly happy with it in the first place, it was cheap and did the job. I've been lusting over Muji acrylic drawers for quite some time and over the bank holiday made my order that came to £49.30, with delivery. Was it worth it? Yes. My new tower of makeup drawers consists of 4 sets of two drawers, however the top set of drawers have a flip top lid so I can stand the bulkier items and my brushes on the top.  
I know almost £50 is a lot to spend on storage, however it's my money and what I wanted. I look at them as an investment, they won't break, they're easy to clean and I can add to them for as long as Muji create them. My dressing table (melody maison) looks a lot tidier now, I'm sure you'll agree.
Disclaimer: some makeup items may be PR samples, however I ordered the storage and am not being sponsored for this.
p.s excuse dirty brushes, I'm off to clean them now!

  1. I've been keen to see your new storage since you started tweeting about them! Yes their expensive but I can see them lasting a long while, plus you can see what you've got and you don't need to be rustling around in the back of drawers looking for things. I like!

    1. Haha ;) It's felt like ages for them to arrive and it really wasn't even a week! :P
      Exactly, plus they're great quality, any cheaper and I'm sure the materials of cheaper drawers would break and they arrived packaged so well. I've never seen such safe packaging, talk about bubblewrap!

  10. That thing is brilliant! I don't own anywhere near as much makeup, but I'm tempted to get a fishing tackle box or something to put all of my products into. Having an organised dressing table is so good.
