You Need This! Oversized Lipstick Organizer


Regular readers will know that I never tout a product as an absolute necessity. Have I gone on and on about things I simply love? Sure. But I try to avoid the words “you need this” because, let’s be real, we rarely need any of the items we covet. Well, that changes with this post. Because I’ve recently discovered a product/accessory that, in my mind, every makeup lover should own.

The ByAlegory Acrylic Oversized Lipstick Organizer is like the heavens parting for anyone frustrated by oversized or odd-shaped lip products that don’t seem to fit anywhere. You know the one’s I’m talking about.

The Culprits


Sure they look pretty, they’re different, we love the formulas…and the shiny, luxe packaging. But these non-traditional, larger than average bullets have been the bane of our existence. They don’t fit into the “standard” sized lipstick holders. In fact, personally speaking, even though there are formulas here that I adore (YSL Rouge Coutures), I’ve not repurchased because of the storage issue. Am I the only one?

Anyway, when I saw the solution to my “problem” on sale for $13.99 USD (or ยฃ13.99 ), I couldn’t pass it up. Actually, I didn’t even know such a thing existed. Though, surely, if any company could have foreseen the storage needs of a makeup junkie, it would be ByAlegory. I own several of their acrylic containers and am very impressed by the quality for the price. And this one, which can house 12 very large lipsticks, is no exception.

Preferring simplicity, I choose the clear version of the oversized lipstick organizer- but it is available in purple, pink and black as well as a solid white and solid black.

Bottom Line: You need this lipstick holder in your life! The best part? ByAlegory is sold through Amazon and, therefore, pretty accessible internationally. You can find ByAlegory products on Amazon,  Amazon UK and Amazon Canada…and some of the EU Amazon sites as well. Go get you some! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow now I’m almost envious of anyone able to fit their lipsticks into a 12 pocket container ๐Ÿ™ Ive seen this around here but Im waiting to buy the large ones from Zarahstore – probably when I go to the US later so I can just get it shipped there instead of to Canada! Gorgeous lipsticks in the first pic btw:)..I dont have a a Kevyn Aucoin one as yet…gasp!!

    1. Well, actually, I can’t fit all my lipsticks into a 12 holder…I have seperate ones for my regular sized lipsticks…a 24 holder and an additional “normal” sized 12 holder…and there’s probably a few lippies that don’t have homes. But I don’t have that many of the “oversized” lipsticks so for now this 12 holder for oversized lipsticks does the trick. ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

    I could use some like these! But I’ve been spending too much on beauty instead of actual storage I’m afraid. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe this summer I should invest in some! Liking the look of these! xx

    1. I know how that is…I can be the same way, lol. Why is it that we don’t flinch (as much) about buying an expensive lipstick but we get cautious about spending money on actually storing it. #beautyjunkies ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I have to say that I do need something like this in my life ๐Ÿ™‚ I have so hard time organizing my lip products x

    1. I have two additional lipstick holders and I’m trying to keep things under control because I’m running out of space, lol. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is a great idea! I am not sure if I have any over-sized lipsticks but it’s possible lol. I have a regular sized acrylic lipstick holder and I love it! Though if I do come across any large size ones then this would be a great option! Thanks for sharing! I didn’t know they made these. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. You’re welcome, Katie! I’m glad the post was useful. ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  3. I have considered getting this but I have a whole makeup case of lip products, that it would take more place to stack it in these. :-/ I might pick up one of this so I can place lipsticks that are in my weekly rotation, that might work.

    1. Yeah, one holder definitely won’t be enough for anyone with a very large collection…but this is nice for someone’s whose collection is more modest or for someone who want’s to display their larger and more awkward sized lipsticks. I think there are close to 50 lipsticks in my collection but only a handful of them are oversized so this container is perfect me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. This is a really great idea! I love to organize as it is and organizing even the smallest things make me happy!
    Thanks for sharing on the Wake Up Wednesday link party!
    Hope to see you next week at 8 pm!

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Kate! This definitely made me so happy…no more need to worry about odd-shapped lippies not fitting anywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I really need to pick up a couple makeup organisers to fit all my makeup on! They are very great to clean up the clutter! thanks for reminding me to get some ๐Ÿ™‚

    Serene xoxo


    1. You’re welcome, Serene. Definitely great for clearing the clutter! xo

  6. oh i need a lipstick holder to house those awkward sized lipsticks that never seem to fit the standard sized containers! Then i can finally have all my lipsticks on display!! Adele xx

    1. Right? I was so happy when I discovered this I had to share! xo

  7. You’re right…I DO need this! ๐Ÿ™‚ My lip products are currently stashed in a mini basket which is fine, but it looks a tad messy and can be difficult to dig around in ๐Ÿ™‚



    1. When I see my lipsticks on display, it definitely reminds me to use certain ones more often. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Just clicked through their organisers and there’s so many that I want haha. But I have actually got a pretty good way of storing all my things at the moment. Will keep it in mind for the future though x

    1. Aren’t they great? I’m a fan of the blush/highligher compact holder as well. One day I’m going to have to transition to a larger storage system though, lol. ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  9. Hey Kimmy, wow thanks for the heads-up! I’ve been toying with the idea of getting some lipstick organizers. This one will probably work best for my Rouge G’s and so on (which are quite huge)!

    1. You’re welcome, Sunny. I’ve yet to own a Rouge G, but judging from what I’ve seen, they are on the larger side. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I have a couple of these – it’s the best way to display things nicely whilst being able to see what you have ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  11. This is a great way to organize lipsticks, I have mine in a box and it all is so chaotic ๐Ÿ˜›
    Nati xx

    1. Agreed. I’m so happy to have something to house my awkward but lovely lipsticks.

  12. Wow, I do need this!! My lipsticks are very unorganized and I have to search for the one I want. I’m going to order this. Thanks!
    XOXO Betsy

    1. You’ll love it Betsy, especially if you have large lipsticks that won’t fit anywhere else. ๐Ÿ™‚
