Caboodles Are Now At Urban Outfitters And They’re Surprisingly Cheap
Organize your makeup like it's the '90s again!
A few years ago, my makeup spilled all over my counter and out of every makeup bag that I fruitlessly used for storage. I found myself hunting hopelessly for a makeup organizer at Target because I was sick of the mess.
I remember cursing aloud to my husband, “Whatever happened to Caboodles!?”
Of course, he had no idea what I was talking about. And granted, Caboodles is a bit of an odd word, but if you grew up in the ’90s you know exactly what I mean!
Those colorful plastic containers were like first aid kits for every pimple that teenage hormones tried to throw at you.
Need me to jog your memory? Here’s an Instagram image from the account RealCaboodles that shows how to keep your makeup organized.
They came in all shapes, sizes and colors, so you could really show your ‘individuality’ and make sure that your little sister didn’t get her paws on your Hard Candy nail polish.
Best of all, the storage solution just worked: You had two swiveling shelves for your small eyeshadows and your lip glosses, then the big bottom area where you could keep everything from foundation to hairbrushes to, yes, scrunchies!
Well, good news, my friends: You can now get a ’90s-style Caboodles makeup organizer exclusively from Urban Outfitters for only $10.
There are three pretty pastel hues that have me drooling: lavender and teal, mint and peach, and pink and poppy. I want one of each, please!
Here’s the lavender and teal color.
Here’s the mint and peach color.
And here is the pink and poppy color.
If I could make one small complaint, I wish the cases came in larger sizes.
This version is only 3.75″ tall and 9″ long. Am I crazy or didn’t Caboodles used to come bigger than that? Or have I just gone from using four makeup products to 4,000?
(You can find out where to buy larger Caboodles cases, as well as train cases and travel totes, on the Caboodles website!)
Other ’90s-Girl Items At Urban Outfitters
By the way, Urban Outfitters has some other pretty awesome throwback products as well.
This fuzzy scrunchie is just $6 and comes in three colors: purple, black and pink.
There’s also this set of “Days of the Week” scrunchies for $12. There are several color schemes to choose from on the Urban Outfitters website.
They’ve also got some pretty velvet scrunchies for $12.
Thank you, Urban Outfitters for bringing these pieces of our ’90s girlhood back to life. Now, excuse me while I go apply my Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker and listen to some Brandy.
