Finally I have got myself some Muji storage and oh, how it has transformed my life... ok, maybe that is a little dramatic. Though my dressing table is much more organised now and I can finally see all the product I use on a daily basis.
So first what did I buy and how much did it cost! I didn't ideally get that I wanted as I bought the storage from the Muji concession of Selfridges in Manchester Trafford Centre and they didn't have the full range in stock. So I would suggest if you are looking into getting some acrylic storage I would either order online (which has the full range) or phone the store you will be visiting to check if they have the products you want.
What I purchased - 2 x Acrylic box 1 drawer wide (£7.95 each - here), 1 x Acrylic box 1 drawer with flip-top lid wide (£8.50 - here), 1 x Acrylic desk pot 3 partitions large (£5.50 - here) - Total £29.90
I decided to go for wide flip top lid drawer as I knew I wanted to put large products at the top so for ease of access it had to have a flip lid and then I went for two wide drawers as I knew I didn't want the tower to be too high as it is in front of a mirror. Though if I had of ordered online I would of been able to buy the 2 drawers wide storage (£10.95 - here) which would have saved me £4.95. Thinking about it now I definitely should of ordered online, but ah well.
My new setup consists of :-
Top - bronzers, blushers and highlighters
Middle -foundations, primers and concealers
Bottom - eyeshadows, eye primers and gel eyeliners
I am really pleased with my set-up now as I can see everything I use, however I have so much more that I want to have out on display. I still need to store palettes, lipgloss, lipsticks, powders, more eyeshadows etc so I plan to purchase another flip top drawer and the 2 drawers in wide which I mentioned above, so it should be slightly cheaper. Then I am going to place it next to what I already have.
As for the Acrylic desk pot with 3 partitions which was only £5.50 I am so pleased about it! It just holds so much - all my brushes, mascaras and eyeliners. But if I had of purchased the storage online I would of gone for the Acrylic partition x4 +2 (£7.95 here) which for a few pounds extra gives you a bit more extra space for hair clips, tweezers, pencil sharpener etc at the front and also another compartment.
Overall I am so pleased with what I got for under £30 as it has just transformed my dressing table and it will definitely last me quite some years I imagine. So 100% money well spent!
