Temptalia’s Beauty Closet – Storage & Organization Tips & Tricks
There is really no post/video that is requested more than to see my “collection.” I really don’t think of it as a collection so much as the Temptalia Archives or the Temptalia Beauty Closet. If I’m buying makeup, the first question I ask is, “Do readers want to see this reviewed?” It’s only a rare occasion that I will buy a product with no thought about whether it’s something that makes sense for the blog–I prefer to dedicate as much time as possible to testing products for reviews (and there is never enough time!!).
I do personally enjoy looking at how other people organize their makeup, especially as it grows in quantity and becomes unwieldy, so I hope that you’ll find some storage and organization solutions that are helpful. I’ve been using this system for two years or so, and I can’t see myself drastically changing it any more. It’s what I always wanted: a flexible, expandable system that looks good but doesn’t have everything on display so it can look clean and contained. The first seven minutes are all disclosures/disclaimers (reiterated below in text) just so I’m clear and cover all the bases 🙂
The “fine print” as it were: some products I have purchased, some products were received as product samples. I disclose whether it was received or purchased in individual reviews. This is definitely not your usual “collection,” as I am a beauty blogger, and I review 3-4 products per day, sometimes as many as 30 in a day (hello, MAC collections!). 🙂 I do donate to a local legal aid organization that provides free/low-cost legal services to victims of domestic violence.
