New Storage Bargains




Have you ever had that moment where you end up buying a bit (or a LOT!) of makeup before getting home and realising that you had ran out of space in your nice, neat storage area.


Well..


That was me on Saturday. I had just done a final Christmas pressie haul, conveniently from my mother to me, and realisied that there was no way all of that would fit into my drawers. I panicked, I had just bought new clear acrylic storage for my drawers from
IKEA and I wasn't looking forward to having to replace it all. I knew from amazon that a decent sized acrylic holder would set me back at least £25, not including postage.


I'm very fortunate that at that time I was in a Tk Maxx store; having just finished my last purchase when my caught a women in line with ACRYLIC STORAGE! My eyes must have nearly bulged out their sockets. I hunted far and low in the store looking for them, only to find them in the bathroom section. There were all sorts and sizes; it was like I'd gone to heaven. There were stacked drawers, similar to that from Muji, and lipstick holders galore. 


I bought several pieces and put a few away for Christmas, but the one's in the picture are what I kept. The 12 lipstick holder was only £3.99!!! The drawers were £20!! That's a bargain to me.

Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips.
