Baby Be Cool

MAC Baby Be Cool Look in a Box Lip Kit ($26.50 for 0.28 oz.) includes travel-sized lipsticks and lipglosses (two of each) in shades of pink. In the past, MAC has released lip kits that featured full-sized products at a higher price tag, and I’m digging the travel-sized shades with the more palatable $26.50 price tag. Each Lipstick is 0.06 oz. (full-sized is 0.10 oz.) and each Lipglass is 0.08 fl. oz. (full-sized is 0.10 fl. oz.), which puts the value of the set at $47.60: $20.40 worth of lipstick and $27.20 worth of lipgloss.

Best Makeup Organizers & Storage Solutions 2017

The Container Store Luxe Acrylic Modular System
The Container Store Luxe Acrylic Modular System

Last year, I reviewed a few different makeup organizing solutions, which I’ll recap below, and I thought that it would be a good time to check in on my personal favorites and how I organize my makeup presently. It hasn’t changed much, but I received an email alert from The Container Store about their Luxe Acrylic system being on sale (and as a long-time shopper at the store, sales are not always as frequent as one might like–I can’t be the only one who loathes having to spend money to contain things that I spent money on!), which made me want to pass the word along.

So, first: storage sale alert! The Container Store has my favorite Linus Shallow / Deep drawers (25% off) along with their Luxe Acrylic Modular System (20% off) on sale.  The modular system is great for someone who wants an acrylic system that is very customizable as you can build it as you please (though now, you can also select from a pre-made combination!). I have too much stuff to store, but I love the way it looked and worked overall–I still use what I bought for the original review to hold products-to-review (see my full review here).

Check out the posts below for more images and detailed information about each system, pros and cons, and the like.

My Most Used Makeup Storage Solutions

My vanity (Ikea Besta Burs, 70″ is no longer sold, but they still have a 47″ version) is a larger, two-drawer “desk-like” piece of furniture with a separate mirror mounted on the fall just above it.  I love the way it works for me, as it is very wide but has a narrow depth, and the high gloss finish has held up beautifully (never seems to stain or scratch); my only complaint is the drawers do not pull out all the way, so accessing anything in the very back is annoying.  My vanity drawers hold basics like my favorite, everyday kind of cheek colors, concealers, foundations, primers, and the like.  My chair is clear with a chrome-plated frame (Ikea Tobias) and is comfortable enough–and I saw Ikea has it in a translucent gray and bluish-teal (swoon!)–but very easy to clean (my main concern).

I have all of my brushes in glassware (just tall, drinking glasses) with round, glass beads (here) to keep the brushes in place on top of the vanity along the back edge.  I also store my eyeliners similarly but in more decorative glasses (Rosanna Jazz Age Old Fashion Glasses).  The wall-mounted mirror (Ikea Ronglan, no longer available, try Hovet) gives me a good “at a glance” or “from a normal viewing distance” view of myself, while the table top mirror (Simplehuman Rose Gold Pro) is magnified so I can see details but doesn’t feel distorting.

Glimmer

Kat Von D Glimmer Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette ($49.00 for 0.63 oz.) includes 12 eyeshadows in shimmery finishes with varying amounts of shimmer from a more satin-like sheen to glitter. Per the brand, the “velvety powder is blendable and buildable” with “long-wear.” The palette features “Glimmer Topcoats,” which are the most sparkly shades in the palette. The brand did not mention anywhere in the online marketing that they could be used with a dampened brush, though I saw no ill-effects of doing so within my own palette.

Two of the “Define” shades (Bronze, Jasper) had stronger base powders but were more sparkly, so with five of the twelve shades having noticeable sparkle or glitter, this palette is going to work best for someone who likes exactly those things–sparkle and glitter. There was fallout throughout wear with the more sparkly shades, and a glitter adhesive would certainly help keep more of those sparkles in place.

The formulas for the “Base” (described as Satin, includes Porcelain, Dusk, Dune) and “Contour” (described as Metallic, includes Copper, Cinder, Rust) shades was particularly lovely to work with–if one wanted intense pigmentation! There were only a couple shades in the palette that were buildable in coverage; the others were quite pigmented.

Drugstore Brands

They’ve come a long way since I’ve started using makeup,
but there are still some products that are lacking (I think powder eyeshadow and blush are the two that immediately come to mind–there are some winners but a lot of losers!). I wish there was a better selection online (or was more consistent)
as it can be hard to track down limited edition products in person (at least for me!).
