It recently dawned on me that I have an overwhelming amount of lipsticks, lip glosses, stains and balms. I use to store these in little plastic trays which sat neatly in my Ikea Alex unit. Sadly this is not the case and I have been storing them in my plastic 4 drawer unit, this sits nicely on top of my Alex 9 Drawer unit.
I thought it would be a good post to share with you all, I'm hoping you will all say you have this amount and make me feel better. However I have a horrible feeling I'm some kind of secrete lip product hoarder! Help me!!
I devised a system where I have my lip balms at the top, then all nude/brown lip products, peach/orange shades, pink/purple shades. I store lipsticks, glosses, stains and balms all together but by colour. How do you store/sort your lip products? Do you have all lip glosses together then all lipsticks?
I got this unit really cheap last year from Asda, I think it was roughly £4-6 which is great value. I store my brush pots on top.
I think Lip balms are fast becoming a new weakness for me, I seem to have a nice little selection! Plus I really want the Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm next.
Nudes are always welcomed in my stash, I think the word Nude is hard to categorise. There's so many different types of nudes. If you're a Nude-y like myself you'll know what I mean.
I love wearing peach/coral shades through the summer, this is the one colour which can totally transform a look. A love a sun kissed glow and lashings of mascara and then a nice vibrant coral shade to add a pop of colour.
After taking these photos and looking through my collection it soon became evident that I have a lot of pinks, purples and some reds. I think everyone needs a red, this again is a hard one because there are so many different shades and tones of red. I've been enjoying lilac/purple toned lips lately which is a nice surprise.
Here is a sneak peek at my current skincare. I store all my must haves in this neat little acrylic tray. It fits perfectly on top of the Alex Unit.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you want to see more like this??

Yeah I like this type of posts and was hoping everyone would like it. I think you're right, I do own a lot! I must make a promise to stop on the lip products! lol xDelete
wow loved the way you organized your lippies! I need to get some drawers like that!ReplyDelete
Thank you, it's such a cheap effective way of storing them. Glad you liked the post xDelete
Wow, you do have a lot of lippies! Not a bad thing though!ReplyDelete
Just today my boyfriend was saying I have way too much make-up... I'm showing him this and I think he'll change his mind :P haha!
Great set up though, I like how it's more colour coded! Definitely makes it easier to find something to match quicker than by putting them as lip gloss and etc!
Ha ha that's funny! I do have a lot. I do need to downsize on them so could probably get the collection down a little bit.Delete
Yes Its so muh easier if I'm trying to find a certain shade I know where to look. x
It's hard for me to say if I have about the same amount as i have stuff in london and in my parents place (all over the place)! But I think to divide them by hues is a good thing!ReplyDelete
Yeah it soon amounts up doesn't it? I found a handful of lip balms and lip sticks in my hand bag the other day! It's so much easier having them sorted by colour. Especially when I know a particular brand/shade I'm after it makes it quicker to find xDelete
That's one HUGE collection of lip products!! Makes my mascara collection look rather humble!xReplyDelete
I need to see your mascara collection, I bet it will put my mascaras to shame! I've just finished 2 of my favourite mascaras :( I'm thinking of trying the 17 mascara next. Can't remember the name, it's in a pale pink wand. xDelete
Wow, I thought I had a lot of lip products ;) xoReplyDelete
Yeah I was shocked how much I had! I kept finding lip balms, lipsticks in cost pockets and hand bags! lol xDelete
Wow you have loads! I love being nosey and seeing posts like this :) xReplyDelete
