What the postman brought me today: Cosmetics Organizer

The postman actually brought me more than a cosmetics organizer today. Besides the Lust Have It box, he brought me some clothes as well. But I think I'll do a collective post at the end of the week because I tend to rave more on cosmetics and accessories.
Anyway, this is what the packaging of the cosmetics organiser looks like...

I purchased this from Ozsale for $14. If you would like an invitation to Ozsale, click here. I do get a $10 when you make your first purchase, so please buy something! I'm broke and I NEED to buy something or I'll dieeee.... Please?

It has three compartments at the back for brushes and other tall and slim items, a longer section (width wise) for things that don't quite fit in the three compartments, five lipstick slots at the front, and a drawer underneath.

I've fitted most of what I use in my everyday makeup routine... not that I use all five lip products or three blushes at one time.

Filled cosmetics organiser with drawer pulled out.
Yes, I only use two brushes for my everyday face routine, and a gazillion eye products (none of which consists of eyeshadows).

Anywho... I think this cosmetics organizer is pretty nifty! I am currently using little plastic drawers that I bought from Kmart & Target for storing my other makeup items...

That's what mine looks like, and I have two stacked - one of top of the other, and then another two, side by side (next to the stacked ones). I'd take a picture but my table is embarrassingly messy, and I'm too lazy to clean up after myself. It's definitely a cheaper option to purchasing the really expensive acrylic makeup boxes (e.g. from the make up box shop), as they cost about $8 each.

I would love to replace all my plastic drawers with with acrylic makeup boxes though, as it looks a heap more nicer. But I don't think that'd be happening anytime soon, as my love for purchasing makeup is greater.... Woe is me.

    1. Oh no!!! It was part of the "Deca Home" sale or something... I'm sure it'll pop up again, OzSale seems to repeat its sales every so often.

  3. I have drawers from officeworks that are like cheap versions of the makeup box drawers. The keji ones are about $16 each I think... I stacked 2 on top of each other and it fits all my makeup perfectly!
