The Make Up Box Shop Haul!

For over 6 months now, I've been storing my make up in two sets of 3 drawer office drawers from Red Dot. The two were stacked on top of each other and worked pretty well to store my make up. Well, until I completely filled them and they started collapsing, that is.

For ages I've been looking into acrylic make up storage but prices have always been an issue for me. A good set of acrylic make up drawers will set you back at least $150 and, up until now, I haven't had the funds to splurge. 

I recently got a new job, however, and I decided that some of my first pay should go towards this product I've been lusting over for so long.

Last Friday I bought myself the Large Glamorous Box from The Make Up Box Shop. Today, just seven days later, it arrived and I couldn't be happier.
The Large Glamour Box consists of six drawers. The first four doors are 3cm deep, the fifth drawer is 4.5cm deep and the sixth drawer is 7cm deep. The handles of the box are "diamond cut for that glamorous effect". The entire unit measures at 21cm wide x 24cm wide and 27cm high.

To be honest, I wasn't sure if all my make up would fit it here but it does. Just. The drawers in my old storage were each over 7cm in height, so I'm sure you can all understand my hesitation. When I was transferring my products across, I found myself throwing a couple of products away, which is great. 

I don't think I'll be able to fit many new products into the drawers so I'm considering buying the Small Glamour Box to place on top eventually, but I'm totally cool with that.

Would I recommend this? Definitely. I really love how neat all my make up looks now and I'm so happy. I'd definitely recommend people check out The Make Up Box Shop.

What do you think of my new storage? What do you think of the price? Would you consider something similar?

Stay tuned for a make up storage video.

  1. I have two sets of five plastic draws that are keji brand from Officeworks.
    I was going to get acrylic draws but for the price, Officeworks has theirs for $10 each plus they are stackable.

  2. Hi, Jaci, I had something very similar for about 6 months. As I mentioned in the post, however, they started to collapse after a while. I was no longer able to confidently open the drawers, as things would get stuck etc, so I decided it was time for an upgrade.

  3. I've had mine since last year and they look as new as the day I got them, if you go to Officeworks soon, check them out.

    They are pretty solid.
