Cosmetic Storage Solutions: You Need To Save Time and Space

Time gets away from me in the morning when I’m busy applying my 30 some odd products. That’s why I obviously NEED some place to store not only my cosmetics but some place that will give me the time of day.

Check this out!

Jump!

The Lips-n-Eyes Cosmetics Organizer puts an end to the frustration of being late for work when you’re busy applying your makeup. This organizer has 23 slots for makeup a top tray PLUS a clock! Exactly what I needed.

Gaudy?

Aw hells yes but the novelty is too good to not enjoy!

Whatcha thinkin’?

$24.98 if you need to save time and space.

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.

    Yeah, I can’t do that one. I would much rather have one of the Laura Grenier’s storage boxes on my vanity. But, I did get something cool for my regular, not every morning usuage storage needs: http://twitpic.com/1gfmbf 15-drawers! Picked it up over at Office Depot. šŸ™‚

      hey paula laura griener is AWESOME šŸ˜€ I keep most of my crap in her boxes šŸ˜€ I really need one of these, Christine swears by ’em plus it has wheels right? I’d roll that bitch around my room as I apply my makeup lol!

      • Cristi

        “Iā€™d roll that bitch around my room as I apply my makeup” LOLZ!! I totally would too!! XD

        Hm… about the organizer pictured above, I couldn’t ever keep something like that around. My cats would have a field day stealing/knocking over my makeup stuffs! ^^;

        I really dig that it has a clock though. Nice touch. šŸ™‚

    • evo

      where did you get that storage unit?? i need one! i don’t think i’ve seen these in canada yet. šŸ™

      • the Muse

        which one evo? the clock one? the roller one that paula showed us? or the cabinet I have?

          • evo

            You are the enabler! heehee. Unfortunately I don’t see this on the Canadian site. šŸ™ I wonder if it’s available in stores.

        • evo

          the rolling one! i’ve seen christine and pursebuzz has them. i don’t think i’ve seen them here. i’ve already filled up my 7 drawer cart with everything i have. LOL

          • the Muse

            evo I really want the helmer one from ikea just to experience it once šŸ˜€

  • Kate

    Terrible! Plus all of lipsticks/lip glosses wouldn’t fit in there.

    Right now I’m using a office desk organizer for all of my makeup and a plastic basket thing for the rest of it.

    I use miss Sassaby organizers though!

      • Kate

        I almost wonder if people secretly design office organizers to double as cosmetics cases. I swear the one I have now is brilliant for cosmetics! Far better than any caboodle makeup case thing.

        • the Muse

          THEY DO kate!!!!!!! LOL! I swear I use office organizers for ALL my stash it’s pretty damn funny!

  • Paula

    Yeah, I think Christine has two of the single drawer ones – they are taller. I don’t need that (*yet). It does have wheels – I started without the wheels on it, but then was all “heck, no, i wanna move this around”. LOL! You’d def dig it.

  • Lillian

    Oooh this would be useful! But i just bought new storage X/
    I’m a new follower by the way šŸ™‚

  • Marcy

    Not sure if I like the nail polish slots – would rather if there were more holders for lipsticks and eyeliners XD The lack of eyeliner space is what is bothering me I think about the holder. Like the clock though!!!

  • The Makeup Block

    My makeup is a bit everywhere. I have a plastic hello kitty lunch box, a bigger lunch box( i don’t know what it is with the lunchboxes?!) , a big hello kitty vanity case and a toolbox like thing for all my makeup, but most of the time most of my makeup is sprawled across my bathroom counter top, lol šŸ™‚

    • Ashe

      I laughed really hard at your comment in regards to the lunchboxes, but all the HK stuff sounds like me. XD

  • JC

    You know, it’s a great idea for storage but I wouldn’t use it cause I have too much cosmetics! =) All kidding aside, I don’t think it should be left in the bathroom though b/c water vapors can cause mold and ruin the products. Thanks for sharing Muse!

  • Kirstie

    I don’t think that this would be good for me… there are no places to put Tarte cheek stains or eye shadows. It is really meant for a lot of lip sticks and/or glosses. But the idea behind it is good!

  • jackieg02

    I need a makeup storage intervention. I totally dislike what I got going on now and I think this thing you showed looks creepy.

    I like the storage solution that someone twitpic’ed earlier, and I have looked for that in Office Depot, but I can’t find it in store. Only online. I think I really would like to see it in store first.

    • the Muse

      lol jackie I thought gaudy not so much creepy šŸ˜€ Have you tried anything from Lori greiner? She makes some seriously awesome storage units!

  • Ann

    It’s amazing! My most used make-up is just all over now. This would make it more organised.

  • Stephanie

    That’s pretty cool! I’m not sure I would use it, but in theory it’s a great idea. And the clock is a nice touch!

  • Pavlina

    Wow, I am so buying one of those. Way better than my wee overflowing “daily” makeup rotation I keep in the bathroom. I love this, šŸ™‚

  • Robyn

    meh hates it cause sods law dictates the lipgloss/mascara you would want would be the one not in this storage thing

    (is sods law a brittish thing or do you get me?)

    • the Muse

      LOL true robyn!

      LOL yes I got ya šŸ˜€ we have “Murphy’s Law” šŸ˜€ but I totally know sods law lol. My xboyfriend is very British and have alot of British friends (my best friend is) so def familiar with it all šŸ˜€

  • Rengirl

    It looks way too limiting and the bulk/storage potential ratio is way off. I think it’s easier keep some kind of clock next to my vanity. Put me in the desk/office organizer camp! Reasonably priced and works very well.

  • Charmaine

    Hey you!

    oh, it’s awful! but I like it for its awfulness, and the clock, that is too fun! for me I would like it even more if it came in fun colors. but I keep my stuff in a few of those Sterilite clear-ish plastic drawer-thingies, and since I have SO many GWP bags I keep stuff stashed in some of those, too! might as well not have them go to waste, yeah? lol *hugs*

    • the Muse

      LOL charmaine my thoughts exactly, gaudy! šŸ˜€ I always stink at using samples tbh!

      Hugs to YOU dear long time no speak!

  • Ashe

    I like this unit but I think it’s more handy for like, “This is what I’m using at the moment and in the morning before I leave,” rather than a long-term storage deal. This is supplementary and most of us on here need an actual room for beauty products to go with this.

    Having said all that, I love your beauty storage posts!!!

    • the Muse

      hi ashe I didn’t really love it myself but I agree good for morning uses but not for entire collections šŸ˜€

  • Brittany

    Awww I’m definitely going to get this for my mother. She’s such a makeup addict and former cosmetoligst who taught me everything I know. She’s been in the hospital for a while now though so maybe it will cheer her up and make her finally get better šŸ™
