Muji Acrylic Makeup Storage - The Clear Cube Dupe

For all you makeup lovers out there who have craved The Clear Cube seen on Keeping Up With the Kardashians - never fear - a more affordable alternative is out there. In New York City I stumbled across the Muji Store in Times Square (there are 2 other NYC locations as well) and I saw an entire display of these acrylic storage cases. They have single drawer, 2 drawers, 2 drawers with lids, 3 drawers and a 5 drawer case. The 5 drawer case resembled The Clear Cube but with smaller drawers while the 2 drawer cases were much deeper. They are easily stackable to make it convenient for you if you want to build upon it. The Clear Cube is around $300 for only 5 drawers. I don't know about you but I need much more than 5 drawers. If you remember the episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, the sisters have a few of these and not just one, but of course, THEY can afford it.

Look how easily you can stack them!

The prices for the Muji Organizational Cases are a lot more affordable and are made of the same durable acrylic except they don't have knobs to pull out the drawers but have a little cleft for your finger to go through to pull it out, but for the price you can't beat it!!!!

All of the different sets of drawers are in the range and can be found here:


These badboys are a hot commodity so the best thing to do is call their Chelsea location since they are the store that ships out to you if you can't find them online and as long as they have them in stock. I am not 100% sure if their other locations offer to ship them to you for about $10 Fed Ex shipping but you can always call them and ask. Happy Makeup organization Ladies.

Sigma Sigmax HD Brushes

I recently purchased Sigma's new and innovative Sigmax Synthetic Brushes. There are 3 different brushes in their new Sigmax line.
To order these brushes go here: http://www.sigmabeauty.com/?Click=57286

The entire set of these brushes is $42 which is completely worth the price considering that one brush alone in MAC will run you about that or even more depending on their brush and their brushes don't come close to buffing out makeup as these brushes do. Kudos to Sigma!
Each brush alone is $16 so you are saving some money if you buy the entire Synthetic Face Kit set. =)

Look how DENSE these brushes ARE!!!!

F80 Flattop Kabuki

The F80 Flattop Kabuki is by far their best-selling in this line and was introduced first. It is perfect for applying liquid, cream or powder foundation and buffs it out on your skin flawlessly. This is my personal favorite in buffering out my liquid and cream foundations!

F82 Round Top Kabuki

The F82 is the Roundtop Kabuki brush and with its synthetic fibers can be used exactly the same way in buffing out liquid, cream or powder products. I especially like using this brush since the head is smaller, it fits better on the crevices of your face, especially around the nose areas!

F84 Angled Top Kabuki

The F84 is their Angled Top Kabuki and is used for perfect application of cream/liquid or powder products on the cheeks without any harsh lines. Perfect for any cream bronzers or blushes you want to use!
These brushes are amazing and get them while they are still in stock because they run out FAST!!
