Beauty Math

This:



Head into your local craft shop (Michaels, Jo-Ann, A.C. Moore, Etc...) and stroll down the woodcraft aisle, you should come across some of these cute, unfinished (customize 'em if you want with paint, stickers, rub ons, etc...) pencil cases for $1 USD each!

Use 'em to store lipsticks, glosses, eyeshadows, etc....

Beauty Math that equals easy, simple, and cheap cosmetic storage!

Loves it!

What are some of your cheap cosmetic storage ideas?

Share!

Hey Izzy, this looks interesting! Erm..but it kinda looks like a mini coffin..lol

Anyway, I've just read from a magazine that Smith's Rosebud Perfume Co. lip balms are finally available here in S'pore! It's retailing at Metro Paragon for $11.90 each.

How much is it retailing there? I've got a feeling it's retailing for a bit more over here :(

This is what I use to store all my makeup. They are called Craft carts and I had a 14 drawer slim line cases and I label each drawer like Pink Glosses etc. Here is a link to it. The one I have is a litter different but I can take the drawers with me when I travel. I just lay a drawer in between my clothes in my suit case.

Hey Izzy, I meant SGD$11.90. That's a little more considering the exchange rate is about 1.3 now. :(

I use pen cups to store lip gloss and lipstick (standing up). You can buy cheap and cute ones anywhere. I put mine inside my drawers, but because they are cute, you can keep them on the counter, too.

hey trishket!

Good idea! I actually have one I brought at Claire's that has flowers on it. I use it to stand some of my brushes up in ;)

I always love cute storage options ;)
