Lipstick Organization Tip!

 

Hey everyone!

I’ve been trying to find new ways to organize my makeup lately so that I can get more use out of products. I watched quite a few Makeup collection/organization videos and most of them featured drawers and desk organizers from Ikea/ebay – both of which one can’t get in India. Previously, my lipsticks were in numerous kinds of boxes – cardboard boxes, plastic boxes etc. and I was itching to find some sort of stand where I could store all of them vertically – it saves up so much space and also makes them accessible. And I found it by chance on flipkart.com!

The Lock & Lock Inplus Tray comes for Rs 245 in 3 colors – white, blue and brown. I’d picked the brown one because I was going to put it on a wooden shelf. I picked 1 brown one to try first and I’m quite happy with how my lipsticks have fit into it!

It is made of translucent plastic and is quite sturdy. It has 8 partitions which is excellent because if you’ve tried to store lipsticks in boxes with no compartments, you’d know how they tend to collapse if not tightly packed with no gaps! The only downside of this tray is that it doesn’t have a solid bottom, it has square shaped holes so you need to put a piece of card sheet or something.

I’ve arranged some of my lipsticks in it right now, its holding 87 lipsticksΒ (and lip glosses) at the moment. Depending on the width of the lipstick, each compartment can hold 6-12 lipsticks. I’d need 1 more of these at least to house all of my lipsticks. Sadly, the brown one is now sold out on Flipkart but the white and blue ones are available if you’d like to try this out for your Lipstick storage!

    Wow Ankita, you will never be able to finish these many lipsticks in your life time! But from where you got this box? It seems so handy and convenient to use. I too have a plastic box where I keep my lipsticks like the way you have done, but since there are no comparments, they keep falling when I pick up one or two. I don’t have those many lipsticks to create a wagon tragedy anyway!

    Nice! Right now all my lipsticks are stored within the cardboard boxes I got from online shopping parcels. πŸ˜€ I loved the boxes from Urban Touch, solid black sturdy boxes, it’s a shame they shut the website down.

    I use a box very similar to the one you’ve got Ankita, just that it doesn’t have compartments, and how right you are about lipsticks toppling over and falling down on each other….This box with compartment looks fabulous πŸ™‚

    Nice! I wish those acryllic boxes where easily available though.
    Currently I use the vellvette boxes for storing them vertically. πŸ˜‰
