Muji - Lip Storage?!



Recently I've been on a MASSIVE cosmetics kick. A 'quick visit to town' for me can turn in to a good few hours carefully studying products in Superdrug, Boots and Debenhams until I finally surface, hands covered in swatches, laden with bags and down to my last few pounds. I do promise, a haul shall soon follow - but be warned it's excessive..
With all the extra products I've found that not even my 8 Tier Muji Drawers or Acrylic Lipstick Holder can hold all of my recent purchases so when I saw the Muji Pill Boxes on another blog, used as lipstick storage, I decided to get two for myself. These are a bargain at just £1.50 each, there are 12 partitions so each box holds a lot of product meaning you free up space by getting rid of all the extra packaging! I also love that I have so many options all together, ideal for getting ready at a friends house or going on holiday.
I'll admit I haven't been able to depot any of my high end lipsticks (why would I buy a YSL Rouge Volupte just to bin the packaging?!) I still leave them on show - I only do this to my lower priced products!
The thing that mystifies me most about this new storage is that I have the memory of a sieve when it comes to most things, yet I can remember most of the names of the Lipsticks in these boxes. Obsessed much?
Could you ever bring yourself to depot your lipsticks?

  1. This is such a good idea, would be a shame to no longer be able to take one of these shades out in your handbag for top ups though!

    1. True! That is a downside, I seem to only go for the same colours though so I have about ten shades of nude, pink and red! xx

  2. I bought one of these ages ago and depotted some of my lipsticks, I totally regret doing it as I haven't used it at all. I never seem to reach for them and as Holly said it means I then can't take just one of the lipsticks with me :) xx

    1. Oh no! That's a shame :( I think maybe this would only be a good idea for old lipsticks then that you can't bring yourself to throw away? xx

  3. I like the idea but I don't think I could ever do that to my lipsticks...they're too pretty in their tube :)

  4. Hmmm interesting! Isn't there some kind of storage for lipsticks in tubes? I don't think I can bring myself to depot them, even though I'm not a huge fan for lipsticks...!

    1. I have an acrylic lipstick organiser but that was full to the brim and looked messy so I depotted the cheaper branded ones :) x

  5. I don't own that many lipsticks, so this would not be a problem for me. But it's a fantastic idea though.

  6. I love this idea but I think I'd be too sad to depot my lipsticks! I do need to find a good storage option for them though, they're taking over my dressing table! xxx

  7. I remember depotting about 10 of my 'cheaper' lipsticks last year, and I instantly regretted it! I just knew that I wouldn't use them and therefore they were wasted really.

    1. Oh that's not great! Sorry it didn't work out for you! x

  8. Wow.. I would not depot my lipstick as I prefer to use them in "stick" instead of using brushes. BUT, may consider to depot NYX round lipstick because the it is too creamy and melt easily. Nice idea to depot it in pill box. Thanks! :)

  9. Have to agree with some- I'd be too sad to depot my lippies! I tried doing a drugstore brand and never used it.

    1. Oh no, that's not good! Maybe it's better if you're moving around a lot then? I take mine when I stay at friends or go on holiday and because they're cheaper branded products I wouldn't be heartbroken if I lost it! :) x

  10. I know the feeling, I don't think i'd ever be able to depot my lippies - I love the packaging just as much as all the colours.

    Love your blog!

  11. I just started doing this with a similar lipstick storage from Japanesque.

    The great thing about this is that you can dig quite a bit of lipstick out of the bottom of the tube when you're unable to just apply to your lips.

    I really like it and I like it for really mixing it up with lipstick colors.
