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 lipsticks (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!
