Hey guys, sorry it took so long for me to do the 2nd installment of my Pretty & Practical Storage, I promise that they will be coming more frequently now.
So my last Pretty & Practical post was all about rings, and today's is going to be about lipstick!
Seriously if you had looked at how many lipsticks I owned a year ago, it would've been about 4. Now I've got well over 20 and I don't even know how that happened, they just seem to multiply when I'm not looking! With this sudden increase in lipsticks I had to find a better way to store them than shoving them in a bin where they were all toppled on top of each other and the ones at the bottom weren't getting used.
So that sent me on the hunt to find something to put all my lipsticks neatly in. I had my eye on the Lipstick Holder from the Container Store, but really there's not one near me and I just didn't think the acrylic would look that nice if I kept it on my vanity.
When I nixed that idea, I happened to come across the Black Nickel Willow Square candle holders while in Bath & Body Works. If you remember I did a post called "$6.50 Lipstick Storage"in September that was about this little handy tip.
I believe this particular candle holder is permanent at Bath & Body Works (at least for now!) because I've seen it there for months now and it hasn't been listed as 50% off which usually means an item is getting the axe. But you know how Bath & Body Works is, they discontinue things left and right so if you like this exact holder grab it while you can!
So there you have it guys, an affordable way to house 25 of your lipsticks that still looks beautiful kept on top of a table. What makes using these Black Nickel Willow Square better than acrylic holders that have little slots for your lipsticks is that this candle holder can be re-used again and again for different things (hey you might even use it for a candle one day) and still look just as beautiful! Plus you can't beat the $6.50 price tag.
