Serendipitously, I received this box of tasty herbal teas from my parents for Christmas a few years ago:
Once the teas were finished (which didn’t take long, but again, that’s another blog!), I knew the box had to find itself another purpose. A touch of inspiration and a ton of organizing later, here’s the result (*choir of angels singing*):
A veritable treasure trove of wonder and beauty! Ok, so maybe you’re not as excited about it as I am (few people would be!), but hopefully this spawns some creative storage ideas or even just a touch of zest for lipstick in general. While lip glosses have gained incredible popularity over the past couple of decades, with many seeing lipstick as dated or passé, I’ve always had a soft spot for lipstick. Maybe it’s my propensity for anything with a vintage aesthetic, or maybe it’s just that some of the greatest makeup brands make such unique, iconic shades that are irresistible to resist (MAC and Chanel being at the forefront, in my opinion).

My collection is filled with every price range, from the most luxurious designer-label hues (check out Chanel Rouge Allure in Boudoir, $37 CAD, available at The Bay or Holt Renfrew) to the most frugal drugstore finds (seriously, I could write a whole entry on how much I love Revlon lip products- maybe I will! Try Revlon ColourBurst Lipstick in Rosy Nude, approx $10 CAD, available at Shopper’s Drug Mart). Take a look through my stash and let me know if anything catches your eye. I’d be happy to answer any questions you have- especially those that may foster your own appreciation for lipstick J
