My vanity has gotten messy with overflowing products that I just throw into drawers. I’ve kept things somewhat organized with different categories for each drawer; lip products have their own drawer, as do eye products, face products, samples, and daily makeup.

Video: Black Friday Haul

I went shopping on Black Friday …….. and on a lot of other days too. I’ve just been a shopping machine and it’s exhausting! I’m glad I don’t do it too much on a regular basis.
