New Year, New (organised) You! WIN a Makeup Box Set for 2012!

31 Dec



If I had to pick only one favourite product from 2011, I’d honestly have to say it was my Glamour Makeup Box Set from The Makeup Box Shop. You might recognise these makeup storage units… yes they are VERY similar to the ones used by the Kardashian sisters as seen on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The Makeup boxes are made of high quality 5mm thick acrylic and are very sturdy. Very much worth the investment.

My little acrylic family consists of a 5 drawer Glamour Makeup Box (AU$124), brush holder with beads (AU$15 with any box purchase), and a nail polish stand (AU$21) and I have to say… I’m madly in love with my little acrylic family. Before they came along, the state of my bathroom drawers were atrocious and my brushes were squished into a pencil holder… horrible I know!! I couldn’t even consider getting more brushes or makeup in fear of trying to find a place to put them.

And here’s a confession… I’m a massive product packaging hoarder. I’m the girl who keeps all my new makeup in its original packaging and will continue to do so until the box is so tattered it looks horrible or it starts to annoy me. I just found that I could stand my blushes up in boxes in my bathroom drawers and read the names on the top, making it easier to know what’s what. Oh and also because I like to know what ingredients are in what… who knows, I may need to look at some of them if needed in a blog post.

So as you can see below, the Makeup Box holds A LOT of products. It so fun organising your makeup into it, I call it ‘Makeup Tetris’ lol. Having this storage unit was also the push I needed to get my products out of their packaging and into their new home! You can see from the last square that I got rid of a LOT of boxes. It was very therapeutic and great to clean and sort out my product stash. It’s amazing how much room the boxes were taking up in my drawers!

This is a snapshot of what products each draw holds… top drawer – eye shadows, second drawer – blushes, third drawer – lipsticks, fourth drawer – mascaras, concealers, eyeliners and primers, and last drawer (the deepest) – my box-o-powders, foundations, powders, illuminators, Illamasqua glosses, bronzers.

This is my little acrylic family… the brush holder comes with the beads and the nail polish stand holds 12 huge OPI size nail polishes (or more if smaller bottles). The Makeup box is also great to store perfumes on top, in full view when you’re getting ready in the morning, so you don’t forget to spritz yourself – and it also saves bench space. Yey!

To get your hands on these awesome makeup storage units, check out or head over to the Facebook or Twitter pages. The Makeup Box Shop does free shipping* within Australia (*NT, SA, WA & TAS Customers please add an extra $7 for shipping).

Thanks to The Makeup Box Shop, I’m running a New Year, New (organised) You competition! To help you be the very best, organised you in 2012, you could WIN a 4 drawer Glamour Makeup Box, Foundation Blending Sponge and Brush holder set (RRP AU$139). Here is the 4 drawer glamour box:

  3. Katelyn December 31, 2011 at 12:36 pm #

    My NY resolution is to not sleep with my makeup on.

  4. Katy Potaty December 31, 2011 at 12:52 pm #

    My NYE resolution is to begin the year with a healthy new diet and exercise plan. As I’m marrying my lovely husby-to-be in April, there’s a lot to do to be in the best shape possible for the wedding!

  5. Katy Potaty December 31, 2011 at 12:53 pm #

  8. rhubarb whine December 31, 2011 at 1:02 pm #

    I am laughing at Katy’s entries above. I have done the same (but under my real name) so not sure how that works 🙂

    My NY resolution? To put some effort into looking more put together when I leave the house. Somehow, after my years of raising a family and holding down a job I have let myself go to the pint where a hair brush and shower is what gets me out the door. I want o leave home with a ‘face’ on, keep my nails polished and pedied, and not look like the mum of teenagers, rather look like a woman that cares!

  9. annasamara December 31, 2011 at 1:08 pm #

    My NYE resolution is to do a half marathon in under 2 hours. And I figure that the training required for that should also help me towards a goal of being generally fitter and healthier 🙂

    Also, to stop buying shoes that I don’t wear!

  10. Bek Woodbine December 31, 2011 at 1:08 pm #

    My New Years Resolution is to be more organized!

  11. Gladys December 31, 2011 at 1:41 pm #

    My New Years Resolution is to power through any insecurities, obstacles and mishaps that lie in my path to building the business that I want. After three years of research and planning it’s so easy to fall into the “I’m still creating it” thinking. Well that ship has sailed, I am now the owner and creative genius (he he) of my own cosmetics company!!!! Time to live the dream!

  12. miss chew December 31, 2011 at 1:57 pm #

    Wow what an awesome comp, I have been wanting these for agggggggggges!!
    Ok for my New Years resolution, I have actually teamed up with 2 of my girlfriends to form a 2012 weight loss group where we each will support each other and weigh in once a week to help encourage each other to become healthier. I also will be running my first marathon this year which this in itself will be a massive acomplishment!
    I follow you and makeupbox on facebook and on twitter and I have twetted about the competition as well!
    I hope I win!!!!!!

  13. Melissa December 31, 2011 at 2:16 pm #

    Great competition! The makeup boxes look fab!

    My resolution this year is simple – be the best version of myself I can be! I know it is quite general but I like that it is all-encompassing and applied to every part of my life.

    I have entered the comp using all of the methods above! I like and follow both sites and have shared on twitter and fb.

  14. Kimmi @ The Plastic Diaries December 31, 2011 at 2:22 pm #

    Never thought of drawers for makeup…that seems so much more convenient!

    My new years resolution is to enjoy life more, take things less seriously and have lots more fun with my makeup and experiment more with colours.

    I keep buying it and stuffing it into a box and dont see what I have, I will spend more time on myself and less on reorganising my cupboards (even though they dont need it!).

    Smile more, eat less.

    This is my fave bblogger comp I’ve seen this year 😉

    I am conveniently already a follower of you both on the Twitterverse and ‘liker’ on FB. I think I tweeted this when you first mentioned this post just cause I was keen to see how beautifully organized your MakeUpBoxAu drawers were haha.

    I am Dustyn Rumble on FB and @wtmontana on Twitter. I have a Resolution List that consists of 12 items as it is 2012 after all!
    1. Blog more over at Blackberry Beauty Junkie and purchase a domain for it too.
    2. Finally learn how to drive manual instead of an auto car.
    3. Save enough coin to be able to self gift at Christmas 2012 a LV Speedy bag (my first designer item) and afford to go to Europe or Japan/America in 2013.
    4. Be a size 12 by February 12.
    5. Turn 23. Relatively easy, I hope.
    6. Shop my stash.
    7. Work out my ultimate HG skin care routine.
    8. Declutter and reorganize my life, one square inch at a time.
    9. Stop eating McDonald’s for all of January.
    10. Attend IMATS Sydney in September.
    11. Bring in the New Year of 2013 with a kiss from my partner – in four years he has been home from work for New years Eve once o
    12. Let this year be a year of debt free – emotionally and financially!

    Cannot wait to see how everyone decks out their makeup drawers – with or without the MakeUpBoxAu! Best investion ever (besides the vegetable peeler and water filters, cause they’re pretty amazing..) where would we be without organization!? Hmm, this comment has inspired me to go sort out my Google Reader subscriptions and work on Resolution #1! 😉 sorry for the huge comment!

  72. ClassicJac January 7, 2012 at 6:58 am #

    This year I have one big resolution, to put myself first for a change. I than have many smaller goals to do with my resolution. I want to spend more time learning what clothes, colours and makeup works for me; learn to run, lose 5-10kg, take a holiday without the kids and to find a new place for us to rent.

    I have followed and shared on Twitter (@ClassicJac), liked and shared on FaceBook (Jaclyn Fahill).

  73. GlossQueen January 7, 2012 at 3:34 pm #

    I so want one of these!

    My new years resolution this year is to socialise more. Since I had bub our social life has taken a huge dive (it’s non existant) and this year I’m going to make the effort to socialise more.

    I have tweeted about this awesome comp and I follow both you and Makeup Box on twitter 🙂

  74. beastandbeauty January 7, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    I have a few resolutions…

    #1. I will achieve my goal weight but I won’t be obsessed by it and it will not define me.

    #2. I will fall in love with someone who loves me back the way I deserve.

    #3. I will not be consumed by work and will have and maintain a life outside of work. I will learn to say ‘no’ to people’s demands and I will learn to say ‘yes’ with an open mind.

    #4. I will explore new places and meet new friends and rediscover the beauty of old places and old friends.

    #5. I will buy less random stuff. Shopping will be a reward, not an emotional experience.

    #6. I will save 10% of my pay for a rainy day.

    #7. I will make a decision to focus on my career, explore the world or buy my own home.

    I have also liked both on Facebook (Account: Through My Looking Glass), followed on Twitter (@miss_kms) and Tweeted here:!/Miss_KMS/status/155911490384302080

    My New Year’s Resolution is all about ME!!

    I’m going to put myself first.

    This means to eat healthily and exercise regularly. It also means taking the time to stick to my skincare regime, do my hair nicely and try new makeup looks.

    If I’m happy, healthy and feeling good, it will not only benefit me but those in my life.

    2012 is the year of me!!

    (I follow @hipandhaute and @TheMakeupBoxAU on Twitter and have tweeted this competition)

    This is such an exciting giveaway! I could so use this to clean up my ridic amount of make up stashed away in drawers that I neglect. I blogged about my resolutions recently, my biggest resolution is actually to finally design myself some new business cards!

      Oh darn, I just realised this is AU residents only, bummer! Still a great giveaway though, I’ll let my Aussie friends know 🙂

    I love this! And I thought I entered damn IPhone! Better late then never I say, but my new years resolution is to change my spending habits! Quality over quantity, that applies to makeup, food, clothing and friendships, a complete over haul! Hopefully that way I’m always feeling great! Already liked on Facey! And of course I follow you on twitter!!

    I need to stop being so negative and angry and start being positive and happy. If my family could just listen, then I wouldn’t have to be so angry

  87. fashionfantabulous January 15, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

    My New Years Resolution is to get off my arse and get active..a very hard thing for me to do cause I love nothing more than chillin out on the lounge with trashy reality TV lol So far I’ve been quite good I’ve used my gym membership which had been hibernating and collecting dust the past year!

    I already follow you and Makeup Box Shop on Twitter and Facebook and I will share news about the comp NOW!!! 🙂

  88. Sharmaine D M January 15, 2012 at 4:04 pm #

    My resolution – to have more FUN! And by fun I mean being organised so I can spend less time on tidying and more time on looking fab.

    I completed ALL steps and I have at least 10 entries. Over achiever, I know.

    Thanks lovely!

  90. Jessica Murray January 15, 2012 at 7:19 pm #

    My New Years Resolution is start my Cinemagraphic Makeup Carreer with a film finally!!!

  91. Katherine January 15, 2012 at 7:55 pm #

    My NYE resolution is to embrace the fabulousness within! Essentially, this means to stop wanting and wishing, and to start loving everything I already have and being thankful for my friends and family.

  92. Christina @ Hair Romance January 16, 2012 at 6:45 am #

    MY NY resolution is to wear more hair accessories, blog full time & become fluent in Italian.
    Great comp! I’d feel so organised with this. I’ve followed all the entry steps x

  93. Michelle V January 16, 2012 at 6:52 am #

    I have completed all four steps.
    My New Year’s Resoultion is to not say anything about someone that I wouldn’t say about them if they were in the same room, ie. not back-stab anyone. Proving to be real difficult so far!!

  94. Calli January 16, 2012 at 6:54 am #

    My new year’s resolution is to kick butt in college and make my study abroad an unforgettable experience!

  95. Kim-Marie January 16, 2012 at 7:15 am #

    I have shared on Twitter as @kimbalikes, on my Kim-Marie Williams Facebook page, liked both Facebook pages, and followed both on Twitter. For some reason, I was no longer following you. Damned Twitter bug! I have now rectified that situation!

    My New Year’s resolution is to keep on top of my health. I was very sick a few years ago and have managed to put myself into remission, and now I’m dealing with another (non life threatening but bloody annoying and life affecting all the same) condition. My New Year’s resolution is to stay on top of my health as I know how important it is. I’m maintaining my “drink lots of water” resolution and slowly but surely stepping up the “do more exercise” resolution. I’m not aiming to lose weight, as I find the negative connotations don’t work for me, but it is an added side benefit of my resolutions! 🙂

  96. Paige Russell January 16, 2012 at 7:35 am #

    My New Years resolution is to travel as much as possible when I am in London.

  97. Nadia January 16, 2012 at 8:07 am #

    Good morning.

    I am hoping to do something cool this year, don’t know what yet, but something great 🙂

    I have done number 1 & 2.

    Cheers, Nadia.

  98. Megan January 16, 2012 at 8:14 am #

    New years resolution is no alcohol for 3 months, possibly more, so far, so good 😉

    I carried out steps 1, 2 & 4


    • Megan January 16, 2012 at 8:20 am #

      Make that steps 1, 2, 3 & 4 🙂

  99. Suzanne January 16, 2012 at 10:16 am #

    Good lord – mighty openended, but my NY resolution is to learn to be content. For the most part I’ve got it pretty good, I just need to silence the inner voice that says I need MORE.

    And I follow both twitter accounts, as @HogSandwich ! Awesome giveaway!

  100. Anne Smith January 16, 2012 at 10:36 am #

    My New Years Resolution is usually to GET FIT… been doing that for the last 5 months… This year My New Years Resolution is to STAY FIT….

  101. Minn January 16, 2012 at 11:49 am #

    What a fantastic prize!
    I have a couple of new years resolutions, My first ny resolution is, I want to look after my skin more, I’m blessed with lovely skin, but I don’t do anything to look after it. So I’m planning getting into a routine for addressing that.
    And secondly, I’ve just graduated uni, so I’m in the process of finding a job that I enjoy and starting a new chapter of my life.

    I’ve followed and shared this on twitter, and also emailed it to a friend who I’m sure will want to enter!!

  102. Michaela January 16, 2012 at 12:13 pm #

    These look absolutely fab! My New Year’s resoloution is to polish myself up. Only buy clothes I love and that are well-made, and treat myself well by putting only good food into it.
    Also I WILL wash my blush and powder brushes more often, and get around to using shadow brushes instead of just my finger…

    Also tweeted 🙂

  103. Jennise January 16, 2012 at 12:25 pm #

    My NY resolution is to learn to love my newly single life and do more of the things I love and fear, travel to Europe, move interstate and just be happy.

    I follow you and makeupbox on twitter. I have liked the makeupbox facebook page and I have shared this comp.

    Thanks Sarah 🙂
