This time Makeup Wars is focusing on how we beauty bloggers store our vast and ridiculously large makeup collections. I have an old “secretary” desk that belonged to my mother, I painted it turquoise blue and then distressed it. I’ve been using it for makeup storage and a vanity but then I ran out of room and my organization went buh bye and it ended up looking like this.
My friend Blushing Noir told me about the Sherrieblossom ICEbOX Makeup Organizer and I couldn’t be happier! I don’t have much room to display my makeup so I chose the ICEbOX Skinny. I just received it over the weekend so I haven’t had time to organize as much as I would like. I will do another review when I have everything exactly as I want it.
The Sherrieblossom ICEbOX comes fully built and with dividers so you can customize each drawer to suit your needs. It sits easily on top of a flat, hard surface and is made with extremely high quality acrylic material with flawless seaming so there are no rough edges. My entire stash didn’t fit, mostly because I had so many large eye shadow palettes, but now all I need is this one organizer on my bathroom counter and I’m set.
What I love most about the ICEbOX Skinny is that I can fit all my skincare (and that’s a LOT) in the top compartments. It comes with a lid but I fold it behind the unit so my taller skincare bottles can fit. I have cleansers, serums, moisturizers, primers, eye creams, eye makeup removers, night & day creams and I even have room for more!
In the first drawer I put some of my single eyeshadows and a few palettes. I have tons of eyeshadow palettes I use on a regular basis so I will probably rotate the ones for this drawer.
In the second drawer I’m storing my blushes. I divided them into powder and cream, although I have powder spill-over. The drawer actually fits all my blushes so I’m thrilled!
The third drawer has most of lip products. I’ve made four sections; two for lipsticks and two for glosses. This needs a little more organization–I need to go through the lipsticks and separate them into colors. These drawers really hold a lot!
The fourth drawer houses my eyeliners along with stick eye shadows, eye highlighters and brow pencils.
The fifth and last drawer houses my bronzers and highlighters on one side and my chubby lip pencils on the other.
The Icebox even comes with it’s own cleaning kit (the Novus Starter Kit which includes Plastic Cleaner & Shine, Fine Scratch Remover & Heavy Scratch Remover).
These are the sizes and prices for Sherriblossom ICEbOX organizers:
