Muji Storage

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally the proud owner of the Muji Acrylic Box ($25). For quite a while, I’ve been storing all my makeup and skincare in an Alex 5-Drawer unit from Ikea ($79), which, by the way, is totally awesome. However, as the time went by, I realized that I don’t get much use of the products I own when they aren’t laid out flat in front of me. This is why I invested in these clear acrylic drawers from Muji, which make it super easy to find things I’m looking for.

Here I keep the bits I really enjoy using or want to use more frequently on a daily basis. Thankfully,  I’m able to store pretty much everything in these besides items like foundation because it’s too large to fit in the drawers, so I store them at the top.  All in all, I really love the way this storage system looks on  my vanity and hope this feeling of satisfaction will last for a while.

    • Thanks, you’re too kind! I know it can get really messy too, especially in the mornings 😉

  • I really need this in my life!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • It is a perfect way to store makeup and it looks so pretty:)

  • I bought into the hype and purchased one (two layered one) when I was in Germany. But I haven’t used it in months… It’s just sitting there empty and unused. I hate that it gets grubby so easily. I wish I was that kind of person who wipes every ‘furniture’ every weekend. But sadly I’m not so right now I’m using a tin box from IKEA hahaha

  • I just bought a few storage products like this, although not this brand. They make everything look so nice though!

  • I really need this! I’ve been looking for the perfect makeup storage for a while, but just couldn’t really decide. This one seems to be perfect, as you said it makes everything easier when the makeup is laid out flat in front of me.
