If you read beauty blogs, or have a Pinterest account, you’ll probably be reasonably familiar with the sight of acrylic makeup storage drawers stuffed full of makeup. Well I was recently sent this one from Arnais Beauty and was keen to try it and see whether my life would be revolutionised with this bit of kit!
I don't know about you, but I seem to suffer with an incredibly messy makeup table. Every couple of weeks I do a tidy up and everything gets put away - but as the week progresses everything ends up everywhere. So when this set arrived I was very excited that this might end my messy table top once and for all.
Let me start this review off by saying that I was very impressed with the quality, durability and user-friendly design of the storage unit that was sent to me. As was my daughter who immediately pinched it to store all her makeup. So I'm now going to have to invest in one for me! The picture below is of Grace's storage container - I only use cruelty free and vegan products and actually don't agree with her choices of cosmetic - but what 15 year old listens to their mother ! (rant over .... sorry)
So what is it? It is a 3 piece kit with loads of space to put your everyday beauty products. You can organise it how you want to as there is no right or wrong way to put together your best beauty products for daily easy access.
As you can see from the picture above this unit holds a surprising amount of makeup.. My daughter just kept adding compacts, pencils, palettes, jars and tubes when I first received it. The drawers are spacious enough (in terms of height) to stack your compacts (blushes, bronzers, highlighters) and / or foundation bottles and tubes. I absolutely adore the dividers that are included in the set.
STYLISH, STACKABLE DESIGN – The top is ideally suited to makeup and accessories that are tall or frequently used. Perfect for brushes, eyepencils, and lipsticks.
QUALITY MATERIAL & MULTIPLE COMPARTMENTS – This organiser is made from high quality, clear acrylic and has plenty of room to store all your favourite cosmetics.
EASY TO CLEAN – Makeup gets everywhere. The powders gets stuck in the corners and dust will find its way into every nook and cranny. This organiser is simple to clean. Simply dampen a soft cloth and wipe away the dust and debris.
If you are considering purchasing one this set retails at £42.99, but there is a current offer on it so you could pick up one for £29.00. These acrylic drawers aren’t the cheapest makeup storage out there, so I did a bit of price comparison and you can pick similar products up for around £9 - but they do look very cheap. I guess you get what you pay for.
MAKEUP ORGANISATION STORAGE TIPS
♥Even though acrylic is durable, it is also a delicate material and can become scratched when you use harsh household cleaning agents. The best way to clean your storage unit is to gently wipe down the surface with a clean damp soft cloth.
♥ Determine how you would like to sort your stash (whether it’s makeup, skin care, or even stationery) – by brand, type, colour, how often you use it etc. Really think about how you select each item, the key is to create a system that makes it easier and more efficient for you to grab what you need when you want it.
♥ Recycle, give away or throw out anything that you know you probably won’t use. Every time I do a major cleanout, I feel relieved. Not only because I have whittled down my makeup stash, but also because I know those products will be used and loved by someone else. I hate wasting things, so what I can donate, I donate; whatever is completely unused, I set aside for giveaways; and anything else gets passed on to friends and family.
