Storage: Drawers (and regarding email questions)...

.

So since the inbox has been backed up since December of last year, Erica is helping me answer some of the emails some of you have sent, so I apologize for the delayed response on some of them! But I wanted to mention that there is a search box and labels to the right and they are there for a reason! So if you ever wanna search for something, swatches, etc. feel free to look around to save you some time in case we can't answer your email(s) fast enough; usually you will find the answer. Also some people ask me about makeup shows, shipping from online companies, etc. and honestly I don't own these sites nor am I affiliated with them, therefore I highly suggest you ask THEM directly to ensure you get the best answer straight from the source.

My experience of course is solely my own with that site(s), so if your package arrived late, I don't know what to tell you other than to contact them to see why. I think it's weird when people email ME asking why their package is late since I got mine on time...lol. I am just trying to avoid having Erica sift through emails when the answer can clearly be found by doing your own research first, either by perusing this site or checking out product reviews. If you can't find your answer, then shoot us an email! Also if you wanted recommendations on colors to complement you, please include a clear pic of your face so that we can recommend appropriate colors/products. :)

Also, many of you leave comments with questions but there's no way to contact you, so be sure to leave an email or I will just reply in the comment box.

And to A, sorry if it came off the wrong way! There was no animosity at all, I was just speaking from my end, my experience with this product and just as a heads up to people who might want to buy it or use it, it might work better for them. Of course with makeup there's no right or wrong from a makeup artist's perspective, it's really just trial and error depending on what works for the client. So as much as you pointed out that it's dewy, for me personally, it was shiny. I am in no way under estimating you or your lesson from MAC. I hope all is good! :)

Anyway, I went to the Container Store last weekend and bought some clear drawers (they were on sale!) for about $9, and I like them because they are obviously "clean looking" since you can see right thru 'em which makes it easy for me to find things. I use it to store all my MSF's and MES's (Mineralized Skin Finishes and Mineralized Eye Shadows), as well as palettes, and some lipglasses.

Jamilla Camel said...

I love the clear drawers! I got non-clear drawers for my makeup, but then I only paid less than $8 for mine, so I guess I can't complain!

Here's my storage from Staples:

The closest store to me is an hour and some change away. I can find the drawers on their site. Can you help. So far, I've used "clear" in the search engine.

I love those drawers! I've been meaning to pick some up but I'm definitely getting some this weekend. I wish there was one that wasn't enclosed but maybe there will be one there that just pulls out.

Mi said...

Quick question, what are the actual measurements of these drawers? The only ones I found at the store were kinda small.

Vanessa said...

Hi Kim, I didn't know how to contact ya personally but I think they may be: 6.5 x 6.5 x 6.5 inches, there was no sticker or info when I bought it other than the sticker with the price on it so I am not sure exactly, and it's no longer on the container store website so I couldn't double check, but I found something on Amazon and those are its dimensions....

bugzbuzzer said...

hey Vanessa those dimensions u gave for the drawers still look really smaller than ur actual drawers....can u maybe measure urs? lol and maybe u can tell me somewhere else that has these drawers? thanks so much! u can email me at cmiele115@yahoo.com
