This is no NORMAL lipstick tower! Let's take a minute to "admire" the beauty and size of this giant against a Muji 2-drawer acrylic box, before I tell you all about it :)
I won the auction for $30.99 + $39 shipping/ customs (from the US, with tracking, via Pitney Bowes Canada as part of the Global Shipping program), totaling $70/ CAD95. How about that?
Now it is a tower alright (15.5"H x 10.25"L x 10.25"W) with 4 sides, 6 horizontal slots on each side (fits up to 17 lipsticks each). I could stack up 14-15 standard lipsticks (Revlon/ Maybelline/ L'Oreal) in each, as shown, or around 340 lipsticks all together.
There are 24 extra slots on the top of the tower (left pic below) for lip glosses (not big enough for lipsticks). You can even place a small square tray in the middle for more storage, if needed.
The acrylic frame and base (right pic) are thick and seem to be sturdy enough to support the volume of products (I only filled about 70% of it for now) and the rotating mechanism works seamlessly too. It does get pretty heavy.
Despite that fact, I still love this huge "house" for all my drugstore lip products to bits. The seller I bought it from (luckydays-13) seems to only have 1 unit left for "Buy It Now" at $70 (CAD93) + $26 extra charge for Canada at the moment.
