To depot or not to depot...

Once again, I am considering changing my makeup storage. I've gone from the 2 metre MALM dresser from IKEA, to the 'Micke' desk (from IKEA) with two drawers, and I also have the 9 drawer Alex unit from IKEA. Yes, I love IKEA! I really really want to streamline my collection now though. I plan on purchasing the dressing table below along with 4 sets of the wide Muji drawers. Whatever I can't fit into these drawers will be thrown out/given away etc..
The main point of this post is to ask "Would you depot your MAC blushers to save space"?  It sounds MAD but I really do love seeing the neat little rows of blush, BUT they are taking up a great deal of space.

Also what about the Mineralize ones? Will I forget about them?

If you have depotted your MAC blushers before have you used them more or less?

Basically do you prefer your MAC blushers in a palette or in their pots?
Let me know your thoughts!

Thank you for reading

  1. I would never be able to depot all of those, they are too nice and pretty in their own containers!

  2. I wouldn't depot them of it were me as I like them individually.

  3. I prefer my blushers in the pot! They look nice like that and you can always pick one and stick it in your bag if you want to take it out whereas if it's in the palette then you'd have to take the whole thing.. I guess the palette is good for when you're travelling though!

    P.s. I have the MUJI drawers! Love them :) xx

  6. you are me two years ago, i had a huge collection and didnt want to depot them ! but my storage space was so limited, i put them all into mac palettes and now i get more use out of all of them ! because i dont end up grabbing my fave every time and chucking it in my purse, so i know you dont want to but i recommend depotting !

  7. I prefer blushers in the pot. I dunno why but my kryolan palettes of blushers, they always seem to break and then all get messed up, whereas eyeshadow palettes never do. SO yeah I never depot blushers. They do take up a lot of space though, it's annoying.

  8. haha aww I'm the same as you on this one, I'd like to depot all of them to save space but I also like seeing them all lined up in their pots lol.
    plus I like to be able to pop one in my bag when I'm going out and if I depotted I wouldn't be able to do that.
    I've got a lot of mineralise ones too that wouldn't depot well so I think I'll just be keeping them as they are.

  9. i like to depot mine. i actually get more use out of them that way instead of always picking the same one all the time. plus with the b2m program you can turn in 6 empties for a free lipstick or shadow which reason enough to depot right there :)

  10. I'm obsessed with Ikea too. I would live there if I could haha.
    I am so jealous and overwhelmed of your blush collection. I'm in love! I wouldn't depot them. Yes it would save space but look how amazing they all look in pretty rows.
    I couldn't comment on the other question as I don't even own one MAC blush, (though I would love to) so I wouldn't know if you'd use them more or less. haha.

  11. Hmm its a tough one, they look nicer in their own pots, but I think you would probably use them more in a palette as you would see a lot of them sat before you at once and may be more inclined to pick one randomly rather than going for the same few all the time. Dont forget about the mineralise blushes though! You could sell the ones you never use but keep the ones you like in their pots :)xx

  12. I depotted then all, they took up too much space as individuals but its such a long boring process and I hated spending money on empty palettes :( so I get why some people just leave them xx

  13. I am in love with the dressing table! so cute!
    Depot for the '6 empties into a lipstick' scheme! seems like a good enough reason + saving space! xoxo

  14. I got the bigger version of this dresser from Ikea with the 3 large drawers underneath which is great for makeup storage :)

  15. I have palettes of my most used ones, that way they can sit out on my desk without getting lost in all the others. The only trouble is I find that they are all I reach for and all my lovely ones in pretty packaging or really unusual colours often go unused :( it DOES save a lot of space though as my blushes can now fit in one drawer instead of spilling over into other ones.

  16. i'd depot but im in a bit of a "i hate looking like i own so much stuff" mood recently.
    i'd probably use my stuff more often if it were in palettes cos you can see more of the colours together instead of looking through individual pots :)
    jealous of how many nice products you own :)

  17. Wow serious blush porn :p First I weould sell the ones that never get used, there are always a few. I would keep your favourites in the pots and depot the rest. That way you will see them better and get more use

  18. I love Ikea! I currently have the malm dresser. I really like this White dresser though. Muni is also very handy for storage! x

  23. I love IKEA.. always great stuff and pretty inexpensive. Also, I have to say.. I'm not a makeup person, but I'd so much rather have them in their pots instead of a palette - easier to find in my opinion.

  24. They do look cute in the pots, but it would be easier having them in a palette. Plus you might use colours you haven't used and be able to mix it up abit

  25. in a palette! i had anxiety issues at first about depotting but it is so much more convienient and easier to decide which blush to use when you have them all open in front of you!
