    My Collection + Storage! [Pic Heavy]

    Here's my collection and its storage.

    Some things are a little messy at the moment (ahem, brushes) but you get the general idea that this stuff is loved!

    It took me a while to get a good system going where things were easy-to-reach and still organized, without too much rifling around. Anyway, enjoy!


    The overview of the desk. Acrylic cases from Muji storage (5-drawer and 2-drawer Large)


    From the right, Palette storage (Plastic desk filing box from The Container Store)



    More palettes, smaller plastic filing box also from Container Store. Custom-made palettes from "Anothersoul" on Etsy. Plastic envelope storage from Wal-Mart. Daily-use stuff in top drawer and random eye shadows in the other 4 drawers.



    Brushes, blushes, lip gloss, paint pots, lip liners, eye liners.


    The 2-drawer Large Muji container. Paint pots, fluidlines, sharpeners, Random L.A. Splash glitters, Maybelline color tattoos and L'Oreal Infallible shadows.


    Lip gloss! MAC lipglass, Dazzleglass, Cremesheen Glass, Kissable Lip colors, Revlon lip gloss, Smashbox, NARS 413 Bleeker St. gloss, Korres, etc.


    More lipgloss, MAC Mattenes, Tarte lip products, Urban Decay lipsticks, Kat Von D lipglosses


    The last drawer. Random items, New Covergirl blast lipsticks, Too Faced liquid lipsticks, Rock & Republic gloss



    The top container: Eyeliner, Pigments, Fix+, Strobe Cream, Eyeliners, some popular lipglosses and/or ones that are almost empty. On the left: A wine glass storage for lip liners. And my clear brow gel that is not going to be used again lol. It's not clear anymore! :-/


    A few dirty brushes and their storage lol. I got these pencil holders at Wal-Mart and filled them with clear beads from Michaels. My foundation is sitting in front of it.


    Daily-Use items. NYX Jumbo Eye pencils, mascara, de-puffing gel, concealer, MAC Charcoal Brown eyeshadow for brows. Too faced highlighter and bronzer, foundation, UD mattifying powder, L'Oreal blush. The two small containers next to the compacts are de-potted UD Primer Potions.


    Blushes! MAC on the top organized by shade, then the 2nd drawer has Cremeblends, then Hey, Sailor blushes, then Mineralize Blushes. Two NARS blushes: Deep Throat and Gaiety.


    MSF's (Blonde, Lightscapade, Porcelain Pink), Pearlmatte powder, Crew Highlighter, EDSF powders, Prep+Prime compact, Blush Ombres.


    MAC Quads, Beauty Powders, Laura Mercier Rose Rendezvous.


    Extra Dimension shadows, Mineralize Shadows, MAC Creamy Bisque (used just about every day, so it's not kept with the others) Victoria's Secret palette, Sigma shadow sample, NARS Lhasa, Douce France trio, Bobbi Brown Black Ruby sparkle palette



    Single Eyeshadows. One day I will de-pot them, but in the mean time, I keep them in ice cube trays. Urban Decay on the left, MAC on the right. I keep them in the pencil drawer of the desk.


    Lipsticks. MAC on the left storage in a 60-spot dot ice cube tray, which works perfect! They are alphabetized. Then a couple of NARS lipsticks, Bobbi Brown, Dior, Revlon Lip Butters, Covergirl lipsticks, L'Oreal Shades, Maybelline, Rimmel lipsticks.



    Palettes that are not going to be de-potted


    De-potted eyeshadows. Mostly drugstore brands, but also Rock & Republic Shadows, Urban Decay Vol 3 and 4 Book of Shadows, Urban Decay Deluxe Shadows, Stila shadows.





    Thank you for looking!

    I love that wine glass! And I think using ice trays for single eyeshadows is a very clever idea.

    Thanks! I was at the grocery store one day and the idea just popped into my head. It's easy to see everything and not have to sift through the shadows to find what I'm looking for!

    A very pretty collection ! But avoid daylight for your products, if you want your makeup to last much longer.

    Thank you! I've heard of keeping items out of the bathroom, but I've never heard about keeping them out of daylight, but I guess that makes sense. I'm always super careful to make sure there isn't much heat or any brightness that would alter the products by making them melt or fade. The corner of the room that my desk is in is far away from the window and kind of tucked into its own little cavern for that reason. My lipsticks and most of the sensitive cream items are kept in the drawers, so they really don't see much light.
