Perfect Makeup Storage

IMG_4188Hi lovies,

If you’re a makeup/beauty product fanatic [slowly raises hand LOL], you’ve probably heard of GlamBoxes. I’ve loved them for a while but couldn’t afford to spend $500+ (because I would definitely need at least 2). Right before I moved to my new apartment this past August, I new I wanted to buy them for my bathroom vanity but was determined to find a cheaper option comparable to GlamBoxes.

After a bit of online searching, I found a cheaper alternative – the Luxe Acrylic Modular System by The Container Store. You can CHOOSE which drawer sizes you need. I thought this was the best part because I could customize my container based on the different sized drawers I wanted for my makeup.

Having a slight case of OCD, I LOVED planning how many drawers I needed and which drawer would hold what products. I definitely recommend doing this if you decide to buy drawers from here to make sure you buy enough so they stack together correctly to create a whole container. [I included a picture of the drawers I bought as a reference]. The site also has a Live Chat which I used and ask the lady to confirm that I bought enough drawers and that they would align correctly.

Also, this is such a great way to easily see all the makeup you have and actually USE it. I used to just pull out the same 5 products all the time because I would be too lazy to go “searching” for anything else. This has been so helpful to find what I need and try products I haven’t in a while.

For the containers shown below, I paid $163 with free shipping. ALOT cheaper than if I went with the GlamBoxes. If you have Ebates, you can get 4% cash back on your total purchase. If you don’t have Ebates – OMG you need to get it. You’ll get $ back from your online shopping and with Christmas coming up – it’s the perfect time to sign up! It’s not a scam I promise – for some reason when I talk about Ebates to people, I usually get asked if it’s a scam. Not sure why! My mom, sister and I swear by Ebates. We get checks every few months of online shopping. Each store has a different percentage of cash back they offer. I encourage you to just check it out — pretty neat!

  1. Hi Stephanie! I’m so glad I ran into this post on your blog- I’ve been looking for a new way to organize my makeup but I can’t find anything I like! I love how you were able to customize your own, I might have to look into that! Great post 🙂


    1. Hi Ashley! I’m so glad you found it helpful! I was the same – always trying to find something to hold all my makeup. I love this organizer! Let me know if you decide to purchase it – I’d love to know what you think!


  2. This storage is perfect! Keeps everything so nice and in its place! Such satisfaction! I clicked the link to the container store with the hope that I could get something similar in Aus and to my glee, the first thing I see is a pop-up saying ‘NOW SHIPPING TO AUSTRALIA’ Yessssssssssss.

    Great post! X
