Kawaii Storage and More!

[email protected]@K! Aren’t these darling?

I got these a few nights at this little shop in Chinatown. It’s sorta a Sanrio style store that carries all sorts of kawaii bits and bobs plus your run of the mill Hello Kitty stuffins!

I got these for makeup storage as I was running out of room for some palettes I had and thought these would not only store them but also look really sweet on my vanity! They are really slim and long and the perfect height and size for MAC quads! I got them for $1.99 USD because Sue lurves me but they are regularly $2.49 USD which isn’t bad either in my humblest opinion!

But of course I couldn’t just leave with the boxes! I ended up with these cute pill boxes as well which were $1 USD Each!

I heart Kiki and Lala! Little Twin Stars Rock 😉

Of course I couldn’t leave without sampling the Hello Kitty warez!

I got this cute little pencil box that I’m going to use for brushes when I’m away on holiday and such! It’s large enough to hold a few and has two trays!

I ended up with this mini perfume atomizer as well! So kawaii!

And finally Sue gifted me with this cute lipstick case! It’s a long silver heart shaped tube that’ll store one lipstick. Click the little button on the side and it pops open and a mirror is on the inner cap! Cool right? Thanks Sue the Muse hearts you (she reads my blog teehee)!

Anyway that was all rather random I guess but it was all so cute, especially the storage boxes I couldn’t resist sharing!



About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    hi Adina!


    do you know Kam Kuo? The two story building? Right in there is the shop!

    They have tons of absolutely cute little finds!

    They also happen to carry a tiny selection of Chinese/Japenese/Korean skincare bits and bobs. Like face masks, eye masks, etc…!

  • Shiya

    I was wondering how u get rmk in the US.. except for ebay?
    Haha I remembered having a favorite hello kitty pencil case in elementary school…

  • Cosine

    Hey there sweetie!

    I <3 ur storage boxes! Mine are cute and have Hello Kitty on them too! =D It's because here in Singapore, they have those snakcs packed in nice cute tin or paper boxes which are great for storing my cosmetics so I often buy them, give the buscuits away and just use the boxes! I'll take a pic and mail it to u next time! =D

    I know I’m really kiddish because I LOVE LITTLE TWIN STARS!!! AND RACCONS!!! My friends keep telling me to grow out of it but I can’t help it! And honestly, I don’t want to. I have this whole collection of raccoon stuff toys, people who have seen it told me that I’m starting a family of my own. LOL! Big ones, small ones, medium-sized ones, tiny ones. I even have them in different poses! HAHA

    Anyways, it’s really had to find nice and cheap storage boxes in Singapore so some of my cosmetics are stored in those nice plastic containers which I try to “cutify” with plenty of sticks and stuff like that. I think it brightens up my mood when I look at them! =D

    Hope these new boxes make ur day just like u make mine! Muackz!

    Hi there! I’m glad I stumbled across your blog…I had no idea there are people out there who are into Japanese makeup..I think you own more than I do and I live in Tokyo, sugoi! Did you end up getting any of the new Spring palettes from Majolica? I’ll be visiting your blog again 😉

  • Bliss

  • (g)ezebel

  • the Muse

    Hehe Izar thanks 😉

    I’m loving the boxes best! very cute for storage


  • the Muse

    Hi Shiya!

    Ebay rarely has RMK around. Where are you located? It’s available in the UK and Japan exclusively and some online shops carry it but the prices are jacked up!

    I had one too lol I never grew up I fear 😉

  • the Muse

    Hey Cosine! How are you feeling love!

    Thanks!!!!! AHHH! I love me some HK!

    Yes yes please do I wanna see I wanna see 🙂 I love cute boxes. I’m always fascinated by the cute stuff I can find in Asian markets, shops, etc..

    LOL! Me too!!!!!!!!! My sister always tells me grow the freak up 😉 lol! But I can’t help so cute!

    LOL! Different poses eh? LOL! My desk is littered with firgures from different shows and cartoons and stuff. Like Doctor Who and Nightmare before Christmas, and even hello Kitty 🙂 I’m a big baby 😉

    I think if you’re creative about storage you can find interesting alternatives that are cheap ya know? Old biccie tins and such!

    awww thanks hun! You’re such a cutie!

    Happy Weekend!
