My Acrylic Dilemma: SOLVED

Hey everyone! A few days ago, I posted about an unfortunate travesty that had my life in shambles. Long story short: I ran out of acrylic space for my lipstick collection.

I just want to update everyone that the crisis has been averted! The situation is under control! Order officially reigns on my countertop!

I received my 24-slot, 4x6 acrylic lipstick case (Php 200, two days after I ordered it. Shout out to Jackie for recommending it to me! I'm happy with how well they packed it (cardboard box + giant bubble wrap + dense foam sheet) but opening the package left a little bit to be desired. The case felt thin and flimsy even though it was presented sans photoshop and false advertising on the site.

I try to comfort myself by thinking that I won't be banging it around, so it should manage just fine. This is a tradeoff I'm willing to take considering my other ~costlier options. Php 500 - Php 800+ for acrylic anything is BONKERS. Acrylic is just cheap plastic!


If my collection further expands, I might go with Juvy's recommendation: a 3x8 slotter from Apex which looks sturdier and costs only Php 180.
