Ikea’s Helmer ($39.99) is a drawer unit with casters. It has six pull-out drawers, and it is an easy and cost-efficient way to store the majority of your makeup and beauty essentials. I know that a lot of ladies love to store their nail polish in these as well. I prefer the silver color, though it does come in red and white, too. The only downside to the Helmer unit is that the drawers aren’t tall enough to store my body products. (Also, these are misleading in size — they look VERY tiny, but they will store a lot of your bobs and bits!)

7 Must-Have MAC Slimshine Lipsticks

About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series
A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.

Gentle Simmer slimshine is a soft, sheer yellow-based pink, wihch kind of makes it a soft pinky coral shade with gold pearl. It’s extremely creamy, moisturizing, and it has a gorgeous glossy sheen finish.

Voile slimshine is a sheer golden-toned yellow. It doesn’t really go on yellow (at least, not for me), but it adds a very natural, easy on the eyes golden shimmer.

Funshine slimshine is a brighter version of Gentle Simmer, and it’s a bit more of a pink, too. It has just a touch of coral to it.

Bare slimshine is a creamy, opaque muted pink. It’s kind of like a nude/neutral color, but it is a bit more pigmented than traditional nude lipsticks are.
