Organization: Makeup

This weekend, I found myself on the hunt for a bigger makeup box/carrier/whatever you want to call it. For years, I've been storing my makeup in this little tin carrier that I got from JC Penney and this week was the breaking point to buy a new one. I could no longer close it because it was so full. I found a nice one from Marshalls yesterday for $17:



It came with makeup already in it, but I kept some of it, and gave away the rest.

I then walked over to Big Lots to pick up a few things for the house, and I discovered that they sell E.L.F cosmetics. I'm probably late on this, but it's news to me. They didn't have a big selection, but I still picked up a few things.



The items came two to a pack- the two lip glosses, the bronzing powder came with a powder brush, the eyeshadow came with the eye pencil, and the mascara came with clear brow/lash gel. They were $1.80.


I also picked up this cute compact mirror for $2:

What a great idea, buying the big box o' discount makeup just for the case. And what a nice case it is, too.

i love big lots, but they don't regularly carry certain items, like this e.l.f stuff. i bet when i go back there, it'll probably all be gone, lol.

OMG! I've got to check out my local Big Lots. I wonder if they carry the brushes too?
