Photos of Your Stash

I saw a thread a while back on here about counting your makeup products.  It was amazing to see those numbers!  While I was reorganzing and going through my makeup since I have moved on to Sephora, and since some things expired and I learned that the hard way lol, I got the silly idea to take a picture of it lol. So if you're bored or just reorganizing your stash, feel free to take a picture and post it!  Smiley Happy My collection is in the little league range at the moment lol

 

This is my stash after I went through stuff.  I don't use my Victoria's Secret kit much anymore since I discovered Sephora, but I still do use the blushes in it and the lip products when I'm at home for the day.  The main two palettes I've been using are from Urban Decay and Kat Von D, and I love both!

 

 

 

Here's my stash back to organization on my spinny organizer my granny gave me for Christmas.  It works well for the moment, but there's no way I can fit my polishes in it lol.

My 'Currently in Use' stash click to zoom in

 

This is a picture of my "currently in use" stash.  

 

(I copied it from my MUA profile.  I don't know how to make it bigger to show more detail.)

 

The drawer at the top has all my current rotation of lipsticks and glosses.  The drawer on the left is my "face" drawer.  It contains foundations, highlighters, primers, blush, and powder.  The middle is the "eye" drawer with shadows, eye liners, and mascara.  Then the right drawer is palettes.

I saw that MAC suitcase on wheels too! It was in a magazine where Carrie Underwood talked about her must have products! ( She liked a Chanel eyebrow pencil as well) Its very very cool but I dont have NEARLY enough makeup for that. I dont even have enough makeup for a traincase. But if I find a pic I'll post it here. Its similar to this $250 one I found at beautycasesonline.com

Re: Photos of Your Stash

@sephoramusthave  The pic of that traincase is nice!  I don't think I have enough for one either.  I'd take the $250 and do some serious Sephora shopping lol

Re: Photos of Your Stash

Alright. Here is the actual travel makeup suitcase thing that I saw in Glamour magazine. The company is called Zuca and they make these makeup suitcases in many colors. Its $285 ( yeesh!). I like the pink one Smiley Very Happy

Re: Photos of Your Stash

I really really want a Zuca Bag!  *sniff sniff* I know its ridiculous but the more I look at it the more I want it. I wouldnt use it as a makeup organizer but if I had as much makeup as tenngal I absolutely would. There's the original Zuca bag and the Mac for Zuca bag and the only difference between the 2 is the MAC logo and for that reason alone it costs a lot more. It has a stack of large zip up drawers, I think you get 5 drawers and a large plastic bag. When you open it up its like a drawer cabinet and it has tons of other pockets and places to shove things into. If I had a ton of makeup I would put eye shadows in one drawer, face products in another, skincare products in another, lip products in another and accessories in the last one but since I dont I would use it as a travel bag instead. I travel at least twice a year and this would perfectly organize everything and nothing would spill on my clothes, break or get wrinkled because every item would have its own space.

@sephoramusthave:  Thanks for posting the photo of what a Zuca bag looks like because I'd never heard of one before.  And now that I've seen it, I want one, too, ha ha.Smiley Very Happy  Seriously, that is such a neat organizer stacker / bag.  One of those would not only be awesome for storing your makeup, but also you could use other compartments for your hair accessories and tools, scarves, sunglasses or so many types of things!  Oh my gosh, I am already thinking about what all I could store in each bag, ha ha, and I've never seen one in person!  I'm guessing they are expensive and with me trying to stick to the "No-Buy" I shouldn't even be thinking about it.  I can see why you want one and I hope you are able to get one.  If I were you, I wouldn't pay more for the MAC one just for the MAC logo if the other one is just as well made, either.  Keep us updated and let us know if you get one!  I'll keep my fingers crossed that you can find a good deal on one!

Re: Photos of Your Stash

I want one but I dont think that I will actually get one because its $285 and with shipping its probably over $300. Smiley Sad You can customize your own bag at their website, they come in sooo many colors. You choose the color of your bag and the color of your rim. And the wheels light up! Youtube has the Zuca Bag commercial and a bunch of other people on there posted their Zuca Bags and what they are using it for. The people that are using it for makeup have a TON of stuff and they are able to fit it all in there, its really amazing. You can sit on it, it holds up to 300 pounds and it comes with a "cover sheet" so that the bag doesnt get dirty when traveling. I would never get the MAC one because I dont see the point and since I wouldnt be using it for makeup organization it would just be kinda stupid carrying clothes around in a MAC bag...however I still really really want to try some Mac makeup( lipsticks and cream shadows) but not this year because I dont need anything.

 

Tenngal you could fit everything in this one bag and just put it aside and it wouldnt take up so much space like the plastic drawers do.

Re: Photos of Your Stash

@sephoramusthave:  I went to YouTube and looked at some of the videos on how people have used the Zuca bag for storage and came across The Clear Cube, which aparently is another very popular makeup storage system that I had never heard of before until today, too.  Anyway I fell in love with The Clear Cube, but it's way over-priced so I guess I'll stick with my current storage system since it works and that way I can stick to my No-Buy rule.

Re: Photos of Your Stash

tenngal---I just looked up "The Clear Cube" and I dont like it AT ALL. Its just a stack of clear drawers and its $300-350 depending on whether you want 4 or 5 drawers....ridiculous. Who would pay for this? I could find something very similar at Target, Walmart or even Big Lots. If I'm going to shell out that kind of money I'd rather get a Zuca Bag. At least the Zuca has many uses and its portable. And I can shove the Zuca in my closet whereas the The Clear Cube would take up SO much space in my bathroom and it wouldnt be pleasant to look at everyday.
