I’ve wanted a Makeup Box Shop organiser since I saw it featured on The Belle Lumiere years ago. It’s become somewhat of a beauty blogger dressing table fixture, and being late to the party on most things- I’ve only just acquired one (thanks to the generosity of the people at The Makeup Box Shop). After using flimsy plastic organisers from Big W/officeworks/Kmart, I can appreciate why people will spend the money on a good quality, solid acrylic organiser.
The Original Makeup Box is a 5 drawer organiser with 4 smaller draws (3cm high) and a deeper draw (7cm high) at the bottom. The acrylic is thick and the unit is heavy (in a good way), sturdy, and well constructed.
I’ve organised my most frequently used makeup items in this box for easy access in the bathroom. The top drawer houses my powder eyeshadow singles, in the second drawer I have my cream eyeshadows, in the third drawer I have blushes, fourth drawer is for lipsticks and glosses, the deep bottom drawer I have put my small eyeshadow palettes. The rest of my makeup collection lives in my bedroom.
Keep reading after the jump!
The Makeup Box Shop also kindly sent me their Deluxe Brush Holder – like their Makeup Boxes, this is also sturdy and well constructed. It spins freely on it’s base for easy access of it’s compartments. I have most of my most frequently used brushes in the centre, eyeliners in one side compartment, and miscellaneous frequently used tools/products around the sides.
The Makeup Box Shop has kindly donated a Makeup Box organiser to give away to one lucky My Funny Valentine reader. The competition is open to Australian residents and will run for 2 week. I will randomly select a winner the following day and get in touch via email. Good luck!
