Lipstick Storage

WTF, Grey's Anatomy season finale ending. SERIOUSLY?! How could they end it like THAAAAAT? Do we really have to wait until the new season starts to find out what happens? BLEH.

ANYWAY,



I made this about a year ago, and I don't know why it never occurred to me to show it off. I got the idea from a Specktra user. It's a cheap, easy, and not to mention eco-friendly way to store your lipsticks. I just cut MAC lipstick boxes in half and taped them together to make a little lipstick rack. I made one for my lipglosses too out of MAC lipgloss boxes. It's really simple and it's easier for me to keep track of my lipsticks without having to dump them in a drawer somewhere.


This is what the bottom looks like--all taped up to make sure it's stays sturdy.

P.S. I want to give a quick shout out to my new followers. Thanks for taking interest in my blog! :)

What a cool idea! This is very good cause' after a while the stickers on the bottom of the lippies tend to rub off. ^_^ I'm a proud follower of your lovely blog!
