Welcome to my World of Beauty and Reviews!

I finally got my hands on the infamous INGLOT 10 Freedom System palette. I decided to play around with it today and came up with a look and I have to say these shadows are amazingly pigmented!

New Vanity Mirror!

It is incredibly bright and I think it came out Amazing!

Polish Hoarders Anonymous!

So the 1st step in any program is admitting we have a problem...

A palette made by Yours Truly!

When Makeup Attacks!

Hi Dolls hope you are all having a great weekend. I had been trying to find a solution for all of my lipsticks and I have the Muji Drawers but I wasn't able to utilize them for my lippies because there were other thins I was using it for. I know everyone dies for the Kardashian Clear Cube and well at $300 something bucks just couldn't bring myself to do it. I love my Muji drawers but I am limited in the amount of depth I have in them . I needed something a bit deeper and well get ready gonna get picture heavy. I just started to feel like I wasn't able to see anything , some pushed to the back and I do not like to Stack things because I never see whats on the bottom

I had debated on wether or not I wanted to do this post because I worry that it may come off as "Show Off or Bragging". I assure you that is NOT my intent with this post at all. I do this to help you all and give you ideas on how to organize and simplify your beauty area and help get better use out of things you may have. I have a pretty decent collection and I do give things to family and friends when I know I will not use it just to clear the air. It took me about 2 hours to get everything the way I wanted and I started to feel some type of way that it had just spun out of control and was like WTH am I doing? After a much needed pep talk with my one and only he assured me that this is just what makes me me and to have fun . Don't owe anyone and explanation and he it comes with blogging. I don't know how Temptalia does it !

I did my homework and came up with a variety of different dupes for the Clear Cube. You can purchase the exact same one I have if you Click Here. That is an Ebay seller. Now I also know some of you do not buy on Ebay so I found another on Sherrie Blossom's website also. There is also another here on Amazon a little more expensive than the one I got. Now they come in a 3,4,and 5 drawer with lid and come in Compact or in Large size.

I paid $168 with shipping from Florida to NJ and I received it with tracking within a week. I can not tell you how impressed I was the Packaging and it arrived safe and sound.






You guys cant comprehend just how much Bubble Wrap that was involved in this package. I could have Wrapped myself up in it and shipped myself back ! lol


Ain't it just purty? lol
What you see inside the drawer are 2 dividers. One with an "X" Formation and just 2 to divide a drawer.

A small Boo Boo but its in the Acrylic itself not on the outside so I think it will be ok .


Top Portion does Come with a lid but I just rested it behind the unit. I put the "X" Divider and put my perfumes, Glitter Stacks, random goodies.

This unit is pretty Big. i could only fit it to the Right of my Vanity. Pretty Heavy too 27lb!

Yes i am a Pigment Junkie (don't judge) . Here I used the 2 dividers for all my 20g jars.







My New Storage for my Lippies.
All of them fit in 2 5 drawer units from Muji. I added a 3 drawer to add more room for new lippies on the way ! lol
Becasue i have the cube I was able to eliminate the use of 3 of the 3 drawer Muji units . Thats how much stuff fits inside of it.



I hot Glued 4 of these Pencil Holders I got from Target makes for better storage for my liners etc.





I love storing them this way sooo much better. Can see everything don't have to fumble.


Since I was in Cleaning Mode Decided to Organize my Bangles too! Got the Clear Holder from the Container Store for $7 and the Black one from Michaels for $3.49. Wish I would have gone there 1st!

Overall i love my Unit and I refuse to have to expand anymore! My rom is tiny and as long as I stick to the space I have and am realistic with what I actually use it will be ok. My fam love reaping the benefits when I have a "Clean Out"! Lets just say they don't really shop for makeup and hair products bc I always  have goodies for them lol.

    Ladies you are all sooo sweet and appreciative and it helps me do what i do so much more worth it. I know beauty blogging isnt everyon'e cup of tea. I have been told I am too organized and maybe even vain, but you know everyone is entitled to there own opinion so it is what it is I guess. I am glad you all enjoy and it does simplify things a lot more when it is organized and you can see what you have.
    Love you guys! xoxoxxo

    Ahhh I'mso jealous of your makeup storage! I had bought some cardboard drawers a long time ago as they were the only ones looking a tad pretty and presentable than the rest, and when I went to stock for more drawers they were gone! FML! These Muji drawers look nice, I'll have them checked out on ebay, me thinks! xx

  13. It looks like your walking into a department store window,and window shopping the makeup heheh. I love it! I hate my plastic storage system but we are moving soon so I am waiting to buy anything that I might destroy in the move hehe

  14. holy makeup!!!!! you are sooooo organized. I need to get me one of those acrylic organizers!

    Wow! I'm reading you for a while (have your blog on my favourites) but I never felt the urge to drop a line...until now :-)
    I guess you spent your money on a wise way as everything look great and seems easy to find the stuff you might need.
    Have fun with your collection and your new storage beauty!

  17. I absolutely LOVE this! Great idea with the pencil holders too. I am totally going to have to save for some of these organizers!

  18. Hi, Cathy! Those drawers are so incredible. I love them. I too need to organize my stuff. It's all piled on top of each other and it's really hard to see the stuff at the bottom. That gets rarely used since it's out of sight, out of mind. Love your organization/tips posts the most because you have some really great ideas. :)

  19. I think I just died and went to heaven..... omgosh! you have enough product to rival Sephoras! Wow... that is amazing!! Thank you for sharing ( I just stumbled on to your blog and love it!!)
    Wow... still amazed.... ;)

    wow that's a lot of stuff. but makeup does expire and you won't get to use it all up. whats the point of buying so much, at one time if you can't use it to its potential? but it's still an impressive collection. and you did a great job organizing :)

  24. Cathy says:

    Hello Anonymous,
    Well all I can tell you is that a lot of it has also been given as gifts etc. As a beauty blogger this type of collection comes with the territory. Some I have bought, received for review, swap etc. The items I feel I do not use enough and just do not work out for me I do generously donate or give to those who can get more use out of it. Some people collect cards, stamps, record albums . Mine is makeup. It is my hobby and "make me happy me time" type of collection.I understand that things have an expiration date. I keep track of the items I buy and rotate them as I need to ensure shelf life. I can I assure you that if you think my collection is big there are tons others even bigger and elaborate than mine. So respectfully I will tell you that I am aware of what you have said and this is my hobby , passion, and what I enjoy to do. Thank you for your time.

    Do you ever worry about your collection going bad? I have so much I want to buy, but I do worry about having to throw it away...
