How I Store My Makeup | Part 3?

Thank the makeup storage lords, I have come a long long way from how I used to store my makeup. Face palm. If you really really want to see, then I suggest you click on my first ever makeup storage post here and then a quick one from last year here. Thought I'd update the How I Store My Makeup with a quick little post...

There's no denying, I love Muji and last week I popped in on my way home to their Tottenham Court Road branch and picked up some more. My lip products are getting out of hand, as you may have guessed from various obvious clues, I used to work for Rimmel London, well still kind of do. So I have sooo many lipsticks and liquids, balms, you name it in my bedroom. Hence why I have so many lip products which is why I picked up another set of the 2 drawer acrylic box.

Lip products are good to keep in the big drawers, especially if you have a lot like me. You can line up the shades nicely so you can see the shade names/numbers and let's just face it, it looks nicer!

Eye and Concealer products are good to keep in the smaller set of drawers, purely because you can't fit too much and it doesn't need to look neat and tidy like lip products do.

Makeup Brushes/Foundation/Primer products are good to keep in the 6 compartment acrylic box as you can take the glass panels out and create your own kind of thing. These are my go-to products and tools for everyday use!

Palettes/Other products are kept in my vanity drawer as these are the things I don't use everyday, however like to be kept safe. So this includes eye palettes, blush palettes and also all of my hair-care products. The drawer is currently WIP as it's a mess most of the time to be honest, but I am looking to buy the compartments that go in here so everything can look just as pristine as the outside!

Hope you enjoyed the latest update on my collection (THANK GOD it's better than 2013/2014) and let me know what you think below!

Bourjois | Rouge Edition Velvet

Left to Right: Fun-chsia, Maquillage, Hot Pepper & Red-evolution.
Hot Pepper
I had the opportunity to try out the new shades of Rouge Edition Velvet* by Bourjois, which I was so excited about as I have heard nothing but good things, plus I love a matte lip product!

Rouge Edition Velvet is a matte lipstick which offers comfort, longevity and of course a gorgeous lip colour. Matte liquid lipsticks have been a thing for a while and I really think they are the way forward and may even replace the classic matte lipstick #justayin'

The packaging is cute and matched the colour of the product, the small applicator is also great as the shape of it makes it easier to apply the colour. I like how it feels as if you don't have any product on the lips, as it dries really quickly which made my lips feel really comfortable. Unfortunately it's not magic so it will come off if you're eating/drinking or smoking shisha in my case. The colours are super bright and pigmented, and I'm loving every single colour at the moment!

For £8.99 I feel like the product could be slightly bigger in size however the colour pay off and wear makes it worth it! Out of 10? I'd give it a strong 8.

This can be purchased from either Boots, Superdrug, ASOS or Feel Unique.

Have you tried Rouge Edition Velvet? Would love to know your thoughts, leave a comment below.

Anastasia Beverly Hills | Dip Brow Pomade

It's true what they say, Anastasia Beverly Hills is the Queen of brows. Her products can do no wrong! I recently purchased the famous Dip Brow Pomade in Medium Brown from Beauty Bay as well as the Mini Duo Brush.

Dip Brow Pomade is a brow cream which helps shape brows in a natural way, giving them definition and structure. Now I'm a fan of both pencil and cream textures as I find them both easy to work with and find they give me a natural brow. It's best to use the Mini Duo Brush with this product as you have a double sided brush which allows you to apply the cream and brush the brows which I do before and after. Before, to make sure hairs are in the correct place and after to blend out the product.

The one thing I love about this is that it's waterproof and smudge-proof once it's applied and dried. As mentioned above, I got the Medium Brown as my brow hair is much darker than my natural hair colour. However it is a tad darker than I expected so I recommend to get a colour down, as you want your brows to look as natural as possible.

What are your favourite Anastasia Beverly Hills products?
