instead of packing for la i ended up depotting a bunch of lipstick to save space for more since i’ve run out of room. this pill box i got in Taipei for a dollar is perfect for lipstick, a great cheap alternative to the japonesque lip palettes which run for $30+ a pop.
Few things give me more joy than beautiful (& inexpensive) makeup organization.

so, remember this post?
welp, i re-organized my shit. someone mentioned this tall ass drawer to me, so i went to ikea and checked it out. it actually fits all my shit perfectly. and im pretty happy with the outcome. my goal was to not have any of my makeup visible. i feel like it makes the area look really junky when you can see everything out, and then there’s dust and shit…i like to keep my makeup in a cool dark place, so these drawers work.
i haven’t bought any makeup in over a year and you can see why. after years of collecting, i have MORE than enough. im probably the only beauty blogger who’s sick of buying this shit. it’s one of the reasons i stopped blogging, i got overwhelmed with all of this…stuff. plus, if i buy more, i’d have to buy more storage and i refuse. but im happy with what i have, will problem sell some of it or give it away, but for now, here’s where it lives and here’s where it’ll stay.
the drawer inserts, most of them are from Walmart/Target (kitchen/office supply area), and the sturdier looking ones are from Ikea, but they are discontinued now. womp.
the vanity lights and bulbs are from Home Depot (i installed them myself…you have to split the wire in the back to make it “plug in”, or if you have a handyman to hardwire the shit, you can do that too. i split the wire and hooked it up myself..so if i can do it, you can too. look on youtube for tutorials on how to do it. its super easy and cheap)

I have a lot of feelings about my new makeup storage situation and they are all good. I did a video overview with a mini review of the muji drawers, but it’s a little long so I don’t know if you guys want to see it or not (bout 9 minutes). Let me know.
$23. I mean it ends up being $33 after S+H but that’s still hella better than any other price for the same product you’ll find anywhere else. I would buy it but I’m saving for a huge fashion sale. :<
S U C H an inspirational vanity! She made this from an ikea shelf, isn’t that ridiculous? I might just copy her. You can learn more about it here.
