Lip Product Organization and Storage

This past weekend Jared made me my lip product organizer for my vanity. Here's how it turned out:
Pretty good, right? There are 42 holes for lipstick or lip gloss, then the front part is 2 levels.
The top has my EOS lip balms and Korres Lip Butters.
Below that is my Victoria's Secret lip balm, my fresh lip treatments (I desperately want the 3rd one!), a Buxom lip balm and a Laura Mercier lip stain.
All my lipsticks and glosses.
The back 3 rows have lipstick. YSL, Dior, MAC, NYX, etc.
The next 2 rows are lip gloss. Chanel, Smashbox, NARS, Laura Mercier, YSL, Bobbi Brown, Coach, Buxom, MAC and Stila.
Lip gloss tubes like Philosophy, Tarte, Sephora, and Victoria's Secret.
I'm very happy with how it turned out! Not that he reads it, but many thanks to The Engineer for doing an awesome job as usual :)

Can I borrow Jared? I'm on my own for home improvements and not very handy. I'll make a honeydo list while we drink wine.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

So glad to see someone else has more lipsticks/glosses than me LOL. I am such a makeup whore... I buy wayyy too much!

Isabel said...

I LOVE IT but i do not own this many lip products to justify making a storage system....i just counted...i own 3 lip glosses :S maybe i should go shopping

Ashleigh said...

Wow Katie you are the lip product queen!! Jealous!! Jared should make more of these to sell :)

A La Mode et Plus! said...

Ok can I borrow you to organize for me?? Lol. This is awesome and tell your hubby he does great work.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

OMG can he come over my place? Pretty please? I promise I return him really soon. And you can come too of course :)

Seriously though this is an absolute dream! You can even begin to imagine how much makeup I've accumulated after spending 16 years in the beauty business. I have stuff that I save, don't use of course, that's 16 years old! It's out of hand really but I need to keep them as a reference.

You're a lucky girl. It looks great!

Happy Thursday, sweetie! xoxo

Café Bellini said...

This looks great. I'm glad I'm not the only one with so much make-up :-) The only thing I don't like are NARS lip glosses, though. I had one and it went off after a few weeks, it developed a weird smell that I couldn't stand. Are yours ok?

um AMAZING!! I love it!
