Hello my loves I feel like it's been ages since I've blogged, I've been so busy I haven't had hardly any time to sit down and blog. I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend. I have a really exciting post for you today, well if you are anything like me (A total make up junkie and storage geek) then you I am sure will appreciate this post. I was contacted a few weeks ago by a company called CoolKubes, they specialise in luxury acrylic make up storage. For the last few years now I have used Muji's clear acrylic drawers to store my make up but I have to be honest and say that I found them pretty difficult to use. I found the concept was perfect but they were just too small for the amount of make up I personally own. I also found that the drawers were diffiicult to pull out without them actually falling out. The Muji drawers I had also had the top which you could lift up which good at times. I liked the fact they were stackable so you could add to them and the fact that they were affordable, other than that they just became harder for me to store my collection. You can check the Muji drawers here HERE.
The inspiration for the design of the CoolKubes comes from the make up storage seen in Keeping up with Kardashians.
CoolKubes are designed to store cosmetics but I think they would be fab for anything, especially accesories! The Kubes are hand made from high quality acrylic. The depth is actually double the size of the Muji drawers which is amazing. The CoolKube measures 30x30x30 Cms.The Cool Kube comes in two designs the K5 is 5 drawers with a fixed top. I however opted for the K3 which is ideal for me. It has 3 drawers and double height bottom section, with removal top for larger products. You can see the full selection on the Cool Kubes site HERE.
If you are after something slightly smaller the CoolKube LITE 24cm (SRP £195 in either Blue or Pink) is constructed to the exact same quality with the same thickness acrylic as the K3, are also available at launch price of £135.00 + £18.00.
Head over to their website HERE or alternately drop them an email at Simplykubes@gmail.com. This is a MouldyFruit exclusive and I am so privileged to be the first one reviewing the CoolKubes make up storage, I honestly love mine!
I had such a productive day clearing out my make up and reorganising it, this is how I have seperated it.
In the top section with lift up top I have put al my face products. Primers, foundations, concealers and highlighters.
In the second drawer are some of my lip products, I love the divider in the drawer it makes organising so easy. I have colour coordinated the lip glosses and some of my lipsticks.
In the third drawer I have my blushers and bronzers (Minus two blush MAC palttes which aren't photographed here)
In the fourth double size drawer I have stored all my eye shadows and primers etc. I love the depth of it, it can store loads I currently have 6 MAC pro palettes in there and there is space for more.
Although the CoolKube can store most of my make up I am still using a few other things to store the other bits.
My brushes are stored in an acrylic stationary holder from Muji you can check it out HERE.
After completing my CoolKube transition I didn't really know what to do with my old Muji storage so I decided to keep it and sort out my nail polishes. Seriously I know this may be geeky but I am so in love with what I accomplished haha. I colour coordinated these also.
Look how pretty it looks!!
I love nothing more than being able to see what I have, otherwise I forget and end up neglecting!
So there you have it my updated make up storage, my LOVE for my new CoolKube K3 and my new use for my Muji storage system! Ahh I love organisation..
Lots of Love
The K3 was sent to me for review purposes, but my review was honest as always!
