Ah lipsticks. My love. My addiction. And one of the messiest drawers in my makeup collection. Anyone else just have the hardest time organizing lipsticks? I've been sharing my makeup collection all week so if you're just tuning in be sure to check out the base drawer (for details about the storage bins), eye and cheek drawer, and eye drawer part II too!
The drawer is fairly simple with just a few bins and the rest storage for my makeup towels, travel size makeup remover wipes, and a few odds and ends. The first bin on the right holds the newest lipstick additions (a lot of which came back with me from Italy) and my MAC lipsticks (would anyone be interested in a collection post?). It's fairly empty with plenty more room for sneaky lipstick purchases.
The middle bin is a beautiful, yet messy sight to behold. I personally hate that I an't stand all my lipsticks up straight on their tops so I can see the labels. I get the desire for different tube designs, but at least make the tops flat for hoarders' sakes. My collection of Revlon lip butters, two Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks in "Rush" and "Rapture" ($22 each), some minis from Ipsy bags or Sephora birthday gifts, and a handful of others.
The large bin on the left holds every other lip product. Any recommendations on better storage and organization are welcome because I think by the time I get to this drawer I just give up. This is home to lip liners, lip crayons, lip glosses (that I never wear), and the random lip balm. Some notables are the NYX Butter Glosses ($5 each), the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in "Sultry" ($9.49), and the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in "Manic" ($20). Everything else just kind of sits there.
Stay tuned for tomorrow when I share my nail polish drawer! The last of a week long makeup collection fest!
How do you organize your lipsticks/lip products?
