{Organizing} Kardashian’s Acrylic Makeup Storage + Cheaper Alternatives

October 21, 2010

So I don’t know how many of you watch “Keeping up with the Kardashians” on E! Network- it’s my guilty pleasure- but in this most recent season, an acrylic makeup storage is shown in almost every episode on Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Kris’ bathroom counter. I am always searching for the perfect storage solution and I’m always re-organizing everything so every time I see this makeup storage I stare closely trying to examine it and find out how big it is, what it’s made of, basically as much information I could grab from a glance and then I went on a Google hunt.

Here is a clip from the show where the storage was first shown (it is 25 seconds in if you want to fast forward):

It is the perfect makeup storage solution. Makes for easy access and you can see everything, yet it still looks great sitting on a counter. Much better then those awful, cheap plastic drawers. So after a long search I was finally able to find it, only to discover the bad news. This five-drawer clear acrylic storage “cube” is $290! Ridiculous. But possibly worth it? I have yet to decide.

It is exclusively sold through a Website called The Clear Cube and this is the only product they make and sell. The five-drawer “cube” is 12″ wide x 12″ deep x 15″ high and each drawer is about 2″ deep. It has five drawers and a top compartment with a hinged lid. So technically you have 6 compartments and they are pretty large compared to most storage solutions. It really is perfect. However, a bit too pricey. Click here to check out the infamous “cube.” They also ship internationally for all you lovelies outside of the US.

There are a few less expensive alternatives, and although they aren’t the exact same thing, they are still pretty close and are just as great. Here are just a few I came across:

Acrylic Case 5 Drawers- $23.95 (Muji)
3-Drawer Clear Box- $9.99 (The Container Store)

    Also, be sure to have comfortable walking shoes at your workplace in case an evacuation requires walking long distances.

    Hi girls!

    I just got this organizer off ebay. It was only 139 for a 6 drawer with lid and dividers. Put in 6 drawer acrylic organizer w/ lid in the search bar. You won't be disappointed. I ordered it on 5/26 and got it on 5/31. The seller was extremely helpful too. It is very well made. My friends are gonna drool over it once they see it :). If you have any questions or would like to see it, let me know. I'll be happy to help out.

    I am personally selling the same unit advertised on

    For 174.99 which also included 2 X and 2 Grid dividers. What good is a organizer with no dividers?

    My eBay store is;=170645218261&ssPageName;=STRK:MESELX:IT

    I can go down on the price if you wish to go outside of Ebay and pay direct with paypal (which means you are secured)

    Contact me

    I only have a limited amount so if you really want one contact me right away.

    I can get you guys the 5 drawer acrylic makeup organizer for 130 $ plus shipping and handling. But I need to know how many of you will be interested in buying this. The seller in the link is selling the same for 290 $ which is rediculous. This is not like muji one which is very very small. This is 12"W, 12"H and all the drawers are 2".
