Banish the bacteria - The perfect cosmetic organiser for all your essentials!

Ever since I read a post from Holly Arabella highlighting the amount of bacteria that can be lurking in  your make-up bag, i've been searching for suitable compact storage for my essential products. As I am constantly shifting between Southampton and Bournemouth i've got into a habit of keeping all my makeup in various bags and just taking them out when I need them. So after an extensive search I managed to find a brand of cosmetic organisers that don't break the bank.

They're called Glam and are found on Amazon, and they sell a range of cosmetic organisers in all different shapes and sizes. The organisers are made of clear acrylic resulting in easy location of products if you happen to purchase one of their 'four drawer' chests.

So here's the one that I bought:

As you can see it came very simply and clearly packaged, and I recieved it three days after it was ordered. It's the perfect size for storing all your essentials. It features:
  • 12 small compartments for lipsticks
  • Two taller compartments for taller products such as mascaras or brushes
  • A large front compartment to hold powders or blushes
  • A narrow compartment for extra storage.
As the organiser (And the entire Glam range) is made from clear acrylic it can match any decor and is easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth (No more bacteria on my brushes!). It measures 21.5 x 13.5cm, so it fits on my desk taking up hardly any space. Here it is with my products inside:

It easily fits all my essentials in it, and more! As you can see i've combined my lipstick compartments with my liquid eyeliner and lip stains etc, as I don't have a lot of lipsticks. They are also tiered so I can easily see all of the products. The back compartment holds my blush and foundation perfectly, with the two narrow compartments fitting my makeup brushes and mascaras in without any problems.
This is the perfect addition to any make-up lovers bedroom or bathroom, and it will probably reduce the amount of time I spent putting on my make-up as everything is clearly laid out right infront of me!

I'll definately be investing in larger units from Glam for the rest of my products, and i'm looking into finding a nice nail polish display rack also. The Glam Cosmetic Organiser retails at £13.50 and can be purchased here. Make sure you check out the rest of the organisers too, they have corner organisers and smaller organisers just for your makeup brushes.

I am so happy with this purchase, and I know you will be too!
