Let’s Talk - Makeup Organization

Lately I’ve been pretty obsessed with acquiring different brands and kinds of makeup and skin care (getting old). They make me happy just looking at them. Does that sound kooky? Well, probably. Guys have their gadgets while girls have their makeup. and shoes. and bags. and clothes.

My vanity is getting crowded and I needed to do something. The solution?

I got this at Muji for Php975. I’m very happy with this as it keeps my makeup organized and keeps the clutter at bay.

Let me show you around.

The first drawer from the right is my Lip Drawer.  It contains my lip balms, lip glosses and my unopened lip products.

The middle drawer is the Cheek and Eye Drawer and houses my mini eye shadow palettes, single eyeshadows, eyelash curler, and sharpener. On the top are my blushes.

The last drawer is the Stock Drawer.

The first compartment contains bronzers and a highlighter. The one on top contains all my stocks – unused, unopened makeup.

I haven’t given up on my old lipstick organizer from my Caboodles set:

I put it beside the Muji organizer and it houses all my lipsticks, eye liners, mascara and concealers. There are prettier lipstick organizers out there but this one is still in good shape that’s why I’m keeping it. Plus my grandmother gave me the Caboodles set.

This organizer is very versatile. You can also put it up right, standing up but I prefer it horizontal as I’m paranoid that it will fall and break all my precious makeup.

Another thing that makes me happy is the light that MB installed on my vanity. It really lights up the space and makes everything prettier. So, thank you MB! When are you going to install the other lights? Haha!

My collection has since grown and I’m thinking of other ways to organize them. How about you, how do you organize your makeup? Share!


  1. I found the Muji organizers to be a bit price-y. Is it worth the extra bucks?

  2. I would say, it depends. For this particular organizer, I already scoured the Metro and didn't find anything like it so I shelled out P975 bucks for this. It's well worth it.

    There are other Muji organizers that have cheaper counterparts in department stores, saizen and Japan home center so I would advise that you scour these shops first before going to Muji so that you have an idea of what's out there and how much they cost.

  3. nice collection you have in there.

  4. i don't have the make ups, hahaha, but at least i organize my toiletries same way you did with your cosmetics. just lip balm, lip gloss, concealer, loose powder, and perfumes are what i have. and some facial scrubs, toners, moisturizers, and stuff too.

  5. bilib talaga ako sa iyo john ray! metrosexual! di na uso ung mga guys na sinasabing pangbading lang ang pag aayos ng sarili. men should take care of their health and appearance too! ano, girls lang ang mageeffort??
