The Best Cosmetics Storage Holder - According to Me and Others!

Makeup Cosmetics Organizer

Even though I don't wear much makeup, I do have specific items for that 'five-minute face.'

For decades, the frugal me would use little storage baskets or small decorative gift boxes with lids to store cosmetics. The problem with putting makeup in a box is digging to find what you need and forgetting about the items buried in the bottom.

A Five Drawer Stackable Transparent Makeup Organizer

After researching various products, I decided to get "A 5 Drawer Stackable, Transparent Makeup Organizer." The one I purchased on Amazon Canada is here. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the exact same one on Amazon USA; however, I did locate an even larger acrylic stackable makeup holder on Amazon USA here.

Be sure to check out the sizes. I have two stackable items that fit low enough against my mirror.

The Organizational Problem I Solved

To do my five-minute face, I use specific items and pulling each one out was taking up surface area on my vanity table. 

I've wanted a better organizing system for cosmetics for years but was never willing to treat myself! I'm so glad I finally bought myself this bonus gift!


As you can see in the above photo, each cosmetic drawer is sorted according to what I use. Best of all, when I need something, I simply pull the drawer open, use the item, put it back, and close the drawer. Nothing has to go onto the vanity table, taking up space.

Here's How I Sorted My Own Personal Cosmetics Unit Based on What I Use:

  1. The top drawer has eye makeup
  2. The second drawer has lip related items, nail files, scissors, and clippers
  3. The third drawer has blush and brushes
  4. The fourth drawer has mascara and my favorite under-the-eye brightener. 
  5. The fifth drawer holds some musk oil, some cream, and hair bands
Since I essentially use everything until it's gone, I don't have drawers or containers filled with old, unused makeup. For that reason, two stackable organizers are perfect.


In the above photo, notice that the bottom drawer is deeper. That's another reason I selected these two stackables. The top stackables are narrower drawers, but I needed at least one deeper drawer.


Here's a close-up photo of the narrow drawers. As you can see, the cosmetics in this drawer (mascara and under the eye cream) fit perfectly fine.


What I like about this unit is being able to put an eyeshadow collection box directly on top. It fits nicely. I made sure the width of the organizer would comfortably fit the eyeshadow box.


Notice the thickness and quality of the plastic. This is NOT a cheap flimsy piece of plastic. When you slide the drawers open, they stay in position nicely. Don't pull them too far because they'll come out. However, that's not an issue either because they quickly go back in place. 

Notice the non-slip black sheet that's included in each drawer. The non-slip insert is not only ideal for keeping things in place but also adds a decorative element.


You don't have to stack them. If your space is more conducive to a side-by-side storage system, you can position them beside each other.

Where to Get This Cosmetics Organizer - A Re-Cap

The makeup organizer above, that I purchased on Amazon Canada is here. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the exact same one on Amazon USA, however, I located an even larger acrylic stackable makeup holder on Amazon USA here. It's just as nice.

  1. I will have to have a look at this for my daughter and daughter in laws! My five minute routine involves a tube of lipstick! So no drawers needed for me, but my gals use much more makeup and I'm sure they would love something like this. Thanks Barbara. I like that it's easy to see things in there!

  2. The makeup storage containers you review here look perfect for my daughter-in-law. She has a small vanity table in her bedroom without a lot of space, so this would certainly organize her cosmetics. Great gift idea too.

    1. I like the vertical storage to save space on my vanity table which is also quite small. It's certainly an affordable gift - handy too :)

  3. This organizer would make the countertop so much easier to clean too! I love the way this organizer works for you. I have an acrylic tray that I use so I can leave my cleaners, hair-spritz & moisturizer all together in an easy lift tray for cleaning under all at once, but my makeup items are all stuffed in the vanity draw. Your organizer would be much more convenient and easier to find the exact item I need quickly.

  4. I have a much larger makeup collection that I have been trying to winnow down, especially now that I am home more. If I can ever get myself down to a really streamlined set of makeup necessities, like yours (I have a weakness for eyeshadow palettes, lol), I would love to use a pair (or trio) of these excellent stacking organizer drawers! I do have some clear acrylic makeup and skincare organizers on my vanity already, including one that holds my lip liner and eye pencils vertically and a rotating, adjustable, multi-tier carousel for my skincare and sunscreen products.

    1. You could just get a few units and put the products you most frequently use in them (since you have so much to sort) - I love to organize and sort, so if I had as much as you did I'd probably buy more lol!

  5. I would love this for storing make up and skin care. I love its organisation. It looks all very accessible, visible and easy to use. I do think it would make a lovely gift idea as well! Thank you for a great review!
