make up storage: muji acrylic drawers

I finally took the plunge and invested in the muji acrylic drawers that are a firm favourite with bloggers and make up addicts!

oh boy.. they're just the handiest thing ever and whats not to love about keeping everything tidy?
I've filled mine with my everyday make up; the top drawer is for my favourite essentials that I always reach for.. foundation, mac skinfinish powder, mascara, blusher and my eyebrow pencils. 
I've filled the second drawer with my most used lip products and some other bits and bobs!
I wish I'd bought one of these earlier; the flip top lid makes life easy when I'm scrabbling around for my concealer in the morning!

I'm definitely going to get some more of these muji wonders for my skincare and nail products... quite possibly the best £11 I've spent this year!

have you got anything similar.. any recommendations?

  1. I keep thinking about getting some of these drawers, I think I'm being convinced I need them every time I read a post aha. This is the first time I've seen the flip top version though, that looks so handy, I'd definitely prefer that to just the normal drawers.

  2. Although I'm not a huge makeup fan, I do love storage, this looks great! I personally love the vintage little wooden boxes for small bits and bobs (mainly artsy things)xx

  3. These always look awesome! Means you can see everything, and it still looks wonderful! Might just have to look into getting myself some! xxx

  4. That is super organized and I love how its clear so you can see exactly where everything is!! Where did you get these?

  5. I want some of these so bad, I just refuse to buy any until I know if I'm moving house. I didn't realise they had a flip lid at the top, how handy is that!

  6. Muji storage is definitely a lovely way to store makeup, especially those pieces with beautiful packaging! I have the same bird trinket box, but with a very slightly different bird image on the tile! :)

  7. I quite recently got some acrylic lipstick holders and nail varnish holders and I love them! I got an acrylic cotton wool pad holder too, so handy and looks great :)

  8. I'm in love with your storage! I have an acrylic lipstick holder and absolutely adore it, I've been lusting over these drawers for a while and you may have just convinced me to go ahead and make the purchase. Great post! :)

  9. I have one of those for my jewellery (with the soft grey jewellery tray in the top) and *love* it! I've got my everyday makeup essentials in a makeup bag that I can grab & go if I'm running late (or tuck into my bag if I think I'm going out later in the day and will want to put my makeup on later). As for everything else, I've got it stored in various sizes of these Muji boxes:

  10. I'd totally forgotten about the existence of Muji! These drawers look like exactly the thing that is missing from my life and they are now on my wishlist! My makeup is currently a giant confusing mess of products so could use some organisation

  11. I love this post, I have wanted these drawers for so long and I might just have to get them! I love your blog and so glad I discovered it, new follower! :)
