Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Make-up Storage Ever Since there isn't a Container Store in my country or any store that offers good affordable storage solutions, when I saw this online I knew it was perfect to store my small make-up and accessories collection. Now everything is neatly organised and easily accessible. Need to get another for stationery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love I bought this for my bathroom sink area to keep my makeup organized. Although it looks a little frosted on the picture on the website, it's definitely a clear acrylic as you can see by my photos. This fits all my makeup perfectly. For reference, in the bottom drawer, I am able to stack 3 long eyeshadow palettes like the Naked palettes, and stack 3 smaller Too Faced palettes behind those. On the other drawers, my compact foundations, primers, blush, lip glosses, etc. all fit beautifully. (I added a makeup organizer on top of the box to store brushes, etc.) The drawers are sturdy and well made. The only thing I changed is to add some drawer liners inside so that the makeup wouldn't slide around. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for makeup storage I wish I had purchased these when I first heard about them! They are perfect for makeup storage and attractive looking on my bathroom counter, I also have the Muji drawers. I purchased 4 of these and stacked 2 high. The top also serves as extra space for even more storage or organization. They are very deep and the large drawer on the bottom is so useful. They are clear from the front and just a small amount of frosted look from the sides which does not bother me. The item picture used as a paper sorter does not do them justice. I recommend these over the Muji drawers because the value is excellent, I recommend these over the Luxe Modular drawers from Container Store that are mediocre quality which I returned, see my review. You will love these whether your makeup collection is small or ridiculous, lol! Love, love, love!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Purchase Love this for my desk. Very sturdy can see through which is convenient.Store cardstock in mine for easy access.The top is divided into fourth which allow for a calculator and other odds and ends without rolling off. Just a great addition. Wish it was stackable. Has front opening. Give it a try you will also love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear 4 drawer organizer I saw a youtube video using this product. I had been searching for a reasonably priced option to organize and store my makeup and skin care products. There were some nice options but very expensive. When i saw this on youtube i had to try it out. Let me tell you it was the best decision ever! I got two and perfectly contains all my products. Plus they look just as good as the high end organizers I found in my search. Highly recommend this to anyone needing a really nice looking way to store makeup in a small spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It!!!!! I am actually using this product to store my cosmetics. It is wonderful to have and was available at such a great price. I had been looking for months for a nice makeup organizer, but did not want to spend hundreds of dollars on one. I will be purchasing another one very soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life of Riley We purchased your 4-drawer desktop paper organizer, item #10062371, to sort out our different sheets we use for printing. Even though it is classified "desktop," we have a storage area in our desk where it fits perfectly. It is so convenient to just pull the drawer for the paper we wish to use rather than having to pull all the packs of paper out to find the one we want. Thanks for helping me be more organized every time we visit your store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great makeup organizer!!! Don't believe the description. This not only organizes paper and office supplies, but also makeup. I had been looking for 4 drawers FOREVER. I could only find 3 or 5....which was either too few or too many. I wanted FOUR. Perfect for the sink top in my bathroom. It's not too big or bulky. It's sturdy and easy to clean. I also bought the Cosmetic Stax Makeup Pencils & Brushes Tray Clear and it it perfect for keeping eyeliners, brow liners and lip pencils in line and perfectly organized. Highly recommend.

Community Q&A

What EXACTLY is the INSIDE height of the top three drawers? There are conflicting answers below. Are they 1" or 1.5" high?

The inside height of the drawers will make a big difference for my needs. Thank you.
Asked by: ProsperityMentor
I think I see the cause of the conflicting answers. The sides of the drawers are not one uniform height. If you measure at the middle of the sides, the drawer is 1” deep. But if you measure at the front, it is 1 & 3/16” deep. Additionally, each drawer does not quite touch the bottom of the drawer above it. There is a small gap between each drawer. So the distance between the bottom of a drawer and the one above it is 1 & 3/4”. What this means, is that if you are using a drawer to store paper, you can store a stack of paper that is 1 & 3/16” thick - if you go any thicker the sheets on top might slide over the front of the drawer. But if you are storing something solid (in my case a USB hub) you have 1 & 3/4” of room.

is this all one unit or does it come apart? - looking for all one unit piece

Asked by: shopper2747
It is all one unit. The drawers are removable if you wiggle at them a bit, but it all came as one piece.

Can the drawers be easily removed?

Asked by: caha
Fairly easily. They won’t remove simply by pulling on the drawer. But if you look at the side of the set of drawers, you can see where the plastic piece prevents each drawer from being pulled out all the way, and then it is pretty easy to gently push the sides of the structure apart enough for the drawer to wiggle out. It is more obvious when you are looking at it than my explanation my suggest.

Photos differ?

The product page photo does not look like the photos posted by some of the users, which looks more like a clear, hard plastic. Which is correct?
Asked by: hermione33
The drawers themselves are clear hard plastic, but the framework that the drawers fit into is frosted. So if you look at the set of drawers face on, you will see completely transparent plastic, but if you look at it from above you see frosted plastic and the contents will be more obscured. The difference in plastic types is not that noticeable unless you look for it, particularly in my situation where the drawers are placed on a shelf - I didn’t notice that they were different types of plastic until I read your question. But I think that explains why it looks different in different photos. You can kind of see the difference in the product page photo, the front of the colorful paper is very clear, but the top of the unit is frosted.

Do these stack?

I am wondering if these can be stacked. Also, how deep are the drawers?
Asked by: Pheebers
I would not recommend this item for stacking since the top of the draw organizer is a bit smooth and doesn't have any grooves to lock a second stack of draws into place. The inside depth is 12 3/4 inches and 1 1/2 for the first three draws and 2 3/4 inches in height for the bottom draw.

Do you have a container to store 8 1/2 x 14 or 11 x 17" paper?

Asked by: EmilyWillard
I don’t think the Container Store sell drawers that fit legal paper, or if they do, I cannot find them under “paper and file storage / drawers.” The Bisley drawers had me hopeful, but the interior dimensions of the drawers are described as 13-3/4” - just short of 14”. If anyone from the Container Store is listening, I would definitely buy a paper drawer that fits legal paper! I have a paper cutter that is 14” long, and I find drawers much more convenient than stackable boxes. As to a drawer that might fit 11“ by 14“ paper, I would suggest checking out a store that sells art supplies.

What are the inside depths of theses drawers?

It is often necessary to have inside dimensions to decide if an item is usable for the purpose one has for it, especially depth/height of inside drawers, cubbies, etc. It would sure be handy if you'd make it a policy to add this info. to your descriptions!
Asked by: GrammyB
The dimensions are as follows: Bottom: 9'' W x 12-1/4'' D x 2-3/4'' H Top, second, and third: 9'' W x 12-1/4'' D x 1'' H
