One episode of that forgettable, trashy, so-called reality series, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” was enough for me to find something better to watch on my television. I have to admit, however, that I couldn’t forget about the Kardashian acrylic makeup organizer. Seriously! If you’re anything like me, I have bottles of nail polish, tubes of lipstick, and makeup brushes scattered all over the place. I have stuff in bathroom drawers, my medicine cabinet and in little containers under my bathroom sink. I always manage to drive myself crazy trying to find something!
An acrylic makeup organizer with drawers is a great idea, but who can afford the kind of cash that trashy tv trio wants for the Kardashian Clear Cube? Not me! I decided to go shopping and I manage to find a product that was very similar, but had a more reasonable price tag.
Acrylic Makeup Organizer Cube by SourceOne
This clear makeup organizer with drawers, five in total, measures 12 x 12 x 15 tall . Each drawer is about 2 1/2 deep.
The first thing you will notice about this nifty organizer is that it doesn’t have a lid, or what some people call a “cubby”. At first, I thought to myself “How stupid is that?” Then I realized that it’s a great place to stash stuff that I use often and that might be too big to fit into one of the drawers.
This clear acrylic makeup organizer is sturdy. I always thought that acrylic was just cheap and flimsy plastic. No assembly is required other that screwing in the drawer handles. As I noted above, each drawer is about 2 1/2 inches deep. So exactly what can you stash in there?
For starters, you can stack four Mac sized eye shade pallets on top of each other with room for another stack of four – so that’s eight in total.
Some consumers have noted that the drawers make a funny “squeaking” noise when you pull them out. But honestly, how serious of a problem can this really be? Some eviews have noted that this makeup organizer with drawers emits a strange odor. However, those same reviews note that it disappears in about a week’s time. New cars have a smell, so would I throw it away? No! I don’t really consider this to be a product defect.
This handy organizer is really roomy and I like the fact that I can instantly see everything I have stored inside. The price is a bit hefty, but it doesn’t come anywhere close to the cost of the Kardashian cube.
It regularly sells for about $300, but you can buy this acrylic makeup organizer at Amazon for 40% off. So you can snag one for $180.00. A nice bonus is that you get free shipping.
