It always happens to me — I specifically look for something and I end up buying something else.
The something is a makeup brush holder and the something else is this makeup caddy:
This means, as of this writing, I still don’t have a container that will hold my brushes in a way that I will see all of them, without them collecting dust.
BUT, it’s ok.
Because now I have this nifty storage thing to hold all of my makeup (plus my sun care products, nail stuff, kabuki brushes, and dry shampoos). Yes, ALL of them. While I’ve been really really bad at not shopping, I’ve been good at letting go of makeup items I’m not making the most out of. Hopefully, I’d be able to limit myself to this container.
Here’s the Glam Caddy filled in:
The box says the Glam Caddy can fit 200 items. I don’t have time to count, but it sure can fit a lot of stuff. If that’s not enough for you to buy it, maybe the Lazy Susan feature will get you to head over to Lazada. It turns a full 360!!!
For people who own way more makeup than I do, I can imagine this could work as a storage solution for products used on a daily basis. It’s difficult to lose stuff in this, you absolutely can see everything.
I noticed a few areas where this could improve on in terms of quality.
All in all, this is a good concept. I just wish the makers thought of using acrylic instead of typical transparent plastic (I don’t know if acrylic is a type of plastic). Also, it makes a squeaky sound as I turn it. It’s not disturbingly loud and screechy, but there is a sound. I really hope this lasts me at least a few years.
This has a weight limit of 10 lbs. That’s almost 5 kgs. My makeup is composed mostly of low to mid-priced products. I only have a few items that fall under the luxury side of the spectrum. I don’t recommend this to people whose makeup collection is mostly luxury items. We all know how big and heavy most of them are. I’m almost sure 200 luxury items weigh more than 5 kgs. I’m basing this off of a tube of Lipstick Queen. It fell on my foot from chest-level height and now I know that beauty truly is pain.
This might not be a good storage option for eye shadow palettes. I don’t own a lot of eye shadow palettes but I think the slots can only fit smaller ones. For reference, see Wet ‘n Wild Comfort Zone palette in the photo.
Despite quality issues, I’m happy with this purchase. Every time I see it, I’m inspired to play around with stuff.
Will this keep me from buying stuff? We shall see.
Lazada sells this for Php 499. It’s the best deal I found online. They shipped it within the promised 5 working days — a little longer than what I’m used to but they kept me updated with the shipping status. Also, shipping fee would be around Php 200 if your total purchase amount doesn’t exceed Php 1k. I had to bully Husband into looking for stuff he “needs”.
