My Favorite Thing This Week:

Definitely one of my favorite things from this past week is my new makeup case that I purchased from Winners here in Canada (similar to Marshalls).  Gosh I love that store!  I’ve been looking for something to house my growing makeup collection for awhile now.  Until the last couple of years I never used to wear much makeup.  I think I had maybe four or five things I put on and that was it.  Then I turned 40 and well let’s just say more color, coverage and highlighting is now necessary :)  The last little while my makeup has outgrown it’s old case and was spilling out. Plus I had to dig to find what I needed.  I don’t like to dig, it bugs me and makes me cranky.  I like to keep my makeup accessible plus I only have one drawer in my bathroom so that is why I keep it out on the counter.  Here’s the old look.

Time for an upgrade!

It has two rows with divided sections which I love.

      Do you mean the makeup case? I mentioned that but maybe you didn’t see it. It’s from Winners here in Canada (Alberta).

    I’m in love with that makeup case! It would be perfect for me! Does it have a brand name or is it just Winners brand? Thanks!

    What is the brand of cosmetic case and does winners have a site to purchase?

      There is no brand on it…it’s one of those stores like Ross that never carries the same things…you never know what you’re going to get :)
