Luxe Acrylic Modular System
Great makeup storage option!
This unit is pretty awesome! I was contemplating on several different options for my make up storage, and then ran upon these items in The Container Store. I will have to say that I absolutely love it! The pieces are easily stack-able - without moving or sliding around. Also, it gives me the ability to add the unit as I grow my makeup collection. Unlike other similar units that come in one box and you have to purchase an entire new unit to add more. With this Luxe Acrylic system, I can just buy another drawer, stack, and save money! This system is awesome and I would recommend to anyone!

So glad I got these
I was looking at these and thinking about buying them for the longest time. I am SO glad I finally did. I love how organized my makeup is now. I have a makeup table my husband made for me, and I love it. I was not willing to get something new, I just needed more room on my existing table. My collection was overflowing all over the place and my table was always a mess.
I do feel now that i have them that the flat drawers are actually more useful than anything. A lot of the bottles I have don't fit into the taller drawers (liquid foundations, perfume, sprays, primers). But the flat ones for palettes, shadows, compacts, paint pots, liquid eyeliners, pigments, etc. are perfect. I think I prefer having my makeup laid out flat so I can find everything easy. The real short skinny drawers for pencil shaped products (eyeliners, lip liners, mascara, glosses etc) and then the full and half length short ones to lay out everything else. I did use the taller drawers for nail polish, but that is the only use I found for them that I really liked.
One other benefit of the flat drawers is I have been able to collect products by brand and type together which is so helpful. So I can put all Mac pigments together, or all gel eyeliners together and see all the colors easily.
The top organizer you can get separately to sit on the top of this set is wonderful too. I can organize the things I use every single day on there and organize all the bottles that don't fit in the drawers.
Attaching a photo of my table. I created 2 different stacks on either side of my table. I am already planning my next purchase to add on to these!
Side note: I ended up buying this online for curb pick up.. that process was so easy and convenient. I got these over the holiday, and being able to drive up to the store and have them bring my purchase out was sooooo nice. I didn't have to worry about shipping or lugging everything to the parking lot. So convenient.

I wanted to love them but..
I purchased these in addition to the Luxe drawers I already own to use as storage for my lip liners and eyeliners. Unfortunately the sizing is off. I have invested several hundred dollars into my makeup storage and when these came out I jumped at the chance to further organize my makeup.
The problem is they are slightly off in height making the top trays impossible to align If you have more then 1 as I do. I'm sure they would be great if you only have 1 stack of the Luxe acrylic system I however have 4 rows of this system set up on my vanity. Sadly, I may need to return them as they just don't work out with my setup.

Love that they are stackable and you can add on as your collection progresses, but I just hate the price :)
They fit a lot and highly recommend for the girl that has a lot of makeup!
