Acrylic lipstick storage for under £3!

Acrylic lipstick storage - £2.98, available here


Ever since I started buying a lot of lipsticks about two or three years ago, I've struggled with a way to store them. They used to live in an old Glossybox but I've now got so many pretty ones that I decided I wanted them out on display for everyone to see. I'd seen a lot of other bloggers using Muji and other types of acrylic storage but I can't really afford to spend £20 on a bit of plastic to house my lipsticks so they carried on living in their battered old Glossybox.

That was until I decided to do an eBay search and I found these acrylic lipstick holders for under £3! I featured them in one of my eBay wishlists and a lot of you told me that you'd also bought them as well. They took around a month to turn up but I didn't mind waiting.. you can't really complain at that price, can you? They turned up in one piece as well which I was pleased about as the Royal Mail isn't exactly careful with packages.

Most of my lipsticks fit in this holder, including MAC, Illamasqua, Chanel, YSL and Revlon but there are a couple of brands that are too big, such as Burberry and Yves Rocher and have had to go in a separate acrylic organiser.  I soon filled up all 24 sections and now I'm thinking about ordering another one as they're fantastic quality for the price and look great on display in my room.

How do you store your lipsticks? Will you be getting one of these bargains now?

  2. I have this too (from ebay) and absolutely love it! It's SO not necessary to spend over £20.00 on lipstick storage when you can get it for just a couple of pounds. xo

  3. Ahh I'm so excited now, I ordered two yesterday! I've been storing mine in a discontinued Ikea lipstick holder, but it was getting a bit impractical and lots of lipstick brands don't fit in it! These look perfect! :) xx
