Impromptu late-night lipstick Depotting.....

Hey Guys:)
After a highly unproductive (down-right lazy) day I suddenly got an itch to clean & tidy my little makeup space & desk (At 9.30pm!). Soon as I got to my lipstick drawer my focus shifted slightly and gave-way to a highly productive depotting session involving some yummy lippy colours. ^_^

I had previously been depotting my lipsticks into the 6 & 12 pan Muji travel pill cases,  available here for £1.50.....
..... But on my last visit to their Dublin store just off Grafton Street I came across these little babies available for £2.25 from their website..... http://www.mujionline.co.uk/

They are detachable 7-day pill cases that fit a full lipstick bullet each perfectly!! How handy is that. So you can join them up to make a palette of 7 or throw just one or 2 singles into your makeup bag on a night out.

And I also found this 7-day pill case below in my local "2 Euro" store here in Galway that is just as good for anyone who may not be able to get to a Muji or purchase from the site.

I personally hate having a tonne of single lipsticks crowding up my drawers and getting thrown all over the place in my kit, so for me, palettes are a must!!! And I tend to depot as much of my makeup as I can, including concealers, cream foundations etc...

You can see my old video on how I fill my palettes Here .....

And here's the finished product...... (Though I only filled 6 of them)

From Left to right..... 1. MAC "To Pamper" Lustre (Limited Edition)
                                   2. MAC "Riveting Rose" Frost (Limited Edition)
                                   3. MAC "Milan Mode" Lustre
                                   4. Barry M #62 Lip Paint
                                   5. MAC "Hot Sass" Dazzle Lipstick (Limited Edition)
                                   6. Gosh "Darling" #134 Velvet Touch Lipstick
                                   7. Coming soon..... ^_^

And that was my evening folks ^_^

Hope this inspires some of you to get your makeup in order too!! (It's loads of fun, I promise!!!)

Take Care & Chat soon.



  1. wow, you are so organized! i haven't tried depotting my lipsticks

  2. It's just very handy for professional kits! xx

  3. I am the same as you, depotting makes it so much easier to see them too! I think the Dublin branch closed down or moved? Great post, thanks for sharing x

  4. Oh no!!! I really hope it hasn't closed down! It was there a few weeks ago last time I was up. Oh well, there's always the website:) xx

  5. nice Idea, but I would be scared, that they'll dry out after a while... what's your experience with that?

  6. Nah, sure once the case is closed it's probably as air tight as in the tube, just don't leave the lid open all the time! x
