Makeup Storage - Muji!

As you can imagine, I have a lot of makeup items – all of which need to be stored, so I’ve been looking into various storage options but keep coming back to the same thing... Muji!

My storage needs to look good, it’s going to be visible in my bedroom so I don’t want something that is just functional (which is what I currently have, in many forms that will find their places in my wardrobe as hidden storage when the time comes) and the Muji acrylic range just seems to tick the boxes.

These are the options that I’ve been considering:
Acrylic Partition Desk Tidy £6.95 – I was thinking about using one of these to store my brushes and pencils.
Acrylic Stand, Large £5.95 – I’m considering using one or two of these to store my perfume bottles on, and possibly any palettes I have too.
Acrylic Box - 2 Drawers, Wide £10.95 – I think I’d like 2 of these for general storage of individual pieces of makeup.
Acrylic Box - 2 Drawers With Flip-Top Lid, Wide – This would go on top of the other 2 drawer units as mentioned above as I just think it would be nice for more general makeup storage that was accessible from the top rather than a drawer. It would also stop me using the top as a dumping ground for other bits if it was to be needed to be kept clear to access the top compartment.

This all comes to a grand total of £57.20 which is quite a lot really... well for makeup storage anyway and I’m already thinking about the makeup I could buy with this money; however I think it could be money well spent as I’ve seen it on a few other blogs and it always looks so lovely, and I think my makeup would be better protected in there too.

What do you think about Muji storage? Do you think it’s worth paying extra for this kind of storage or would you prefer to save the cash and spend it on something different? Have you got any other options that look great and are still functional for your storage?

  1. Great post!! I am actually redoing my office at the moment (blog post to come) and it has been an extremely horrible process. So far I have resorted to mostly Ikea storage for larger items, but now I am getting down to smaller things like eyeshadows and lipsticks. These Muji items look perfect for the smaller stuff but I agree it is quite pricey, and it would be even more for me to get it to Australia.

    I do suggest stalking Ikea regularly but I am always on the lookout for new ideas.
