Brilliant find for make up storage!

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

In this post I wanted to share this brilliant find with you.
It’s no less and no more than a storage box! But it’s probably the nicest one for make up that I’ve seen around. Maybe you’ve seen it before as it’s now a few of us (make up addicts) who are using it for the same purpose.

It’s from Wh-Smith and you can find it in their stationary section.
It’s called Blossom Storage Drawer Set and it’s only £7.49 online! Mmmm..I paid £15 for it! Damn it. I might place an order as they are so cheap and gorgeous.
I also discovered that they have other prints as well which they didn’t have before. The cupcake and the nightingale ones are cute as well! Check them out.
I got mine online like nearly a year ago. You can find them in stores but only in big ones I believe.

Anyway, they store a huge amount of things and the drawers are perfect in depth and height for make up. Here are the photos for you to see what I’m talking about.





First photo:
This is how I have it all set up. The drawer set is on top of more boxes: in the bottom one I have some tights, in the middle one I have some woolly hats and in the one below the drawers I keep my wedding bouquet which I dried…yep, 5 years ago and it’s still very pretty all dried.
As you can see I have some stuff on top of the drawers. It’s ok as it is now but I don’t think would be a good idea to put anything heavier than that.

Second photo:
In the first drawer I put things that I don’t really use either because I don’t like them or because they let me down somehow.
In the second I put some face stuff. Most of my face stuff is on my dressing table so this is just things that I don’t use on a daily basis.
In the third drawer I have some of my pigments and glitters: MAC, Inglot, Sleek, Collection 2000, etc. These are probably the ones that I use less. I have a nice little tin thing with all my Barry M pigments on my dressing table and these are the ones I use the most.

Third photo:
In the first drawer I have most of my blushes, bronzers and some highlighters. The ones I use the most are on my dressing table.
In the second drawer I have all my paint pots by Mac and double ware crème eye shadows by Estee Lauder. I also have some cream eye shadows by Elf, Revlon, Rimmel and from Urban Decay.

Fourth photo:
In this drawer I have most of my eye shadows. There is a bit of everything here: Mac, Bourjois, Bobbi Brown, Milani, 4 palettes of the runway eye shadows from Milani which I love, some UK beauty palettes, some Nars, some Urban Decay, a Chanel palette a Dior palette, n7, loose pigments. Etc.
As you can see you can put quite a bit in this little box! It’s also very cute so it will style your room as well!

I hope this post was useful.

See ya soon

    @ everyone: Thanks for the nice comments. <br /><br />I do love this box and I totally recommend it! I placed an order yesterday as I couldn&#39;t resist it as they were so cheap. I will always find something to put in them: all my make up that lives on the dressing table and it&#39;s getting all over the place, skin care, hair care, etc.<br /><br />Please girls be aware that if you order them they are not currently in stock and it it might take 4+ weeks to get to you. I remember this is what happened when I ordered mine like a year ago! A bit annoying but it&#39;s worth the wait.<br /><br />Take care you gorgeous girls!<br />XXX<br />Mercedes
