eDiva Duchess | Review

I was gifted the eDiva Duchess for my birthday this year and I am beyond excited!!!  I have wanted one of these bad boys ever since I saw them on Saaammage's channel on YouTube (her organization tips on them in her makeup collection videos are great so check them out).  I do store my makeup in an old vanity that used to be in my grandmothers house but I wanted something that I could put on top where my go-to products would be to streamline my process.

The Pros and Claims:
- Stylish and cute with rounded corners
- Dividers included to organize drawers
- Super durable 1/2 inch acrylic 
- Guaranteed against nicks, chips, etc.
- Shipping is super fast and FREE

Because I wanted to put it on top of my vanity, I chose the Duchess size which is the smaller out of their two sizes [the Princess being the larger].  It measures 10" x 10" x 12" and is made of high quality acetic with rounded corners.  For someone who is a tad clutzy like myself, especially when rushing to get ready - I won't nick myself on any sharp corners.

With the way I used the dividers I had enough for thee drawers worth, which worked perfectly for me.  I tried to pretty much organize the drawers in the order I would put my face on in with a few slight exceptions that dividers made a bit tricky.  I think the end result was pretty darn good and I am super happy with it!

Here is a quick rundown of my drawers from bottom to top:

First [Bottom] Drawer: Foundations

Second Drawer: Concealers, Powders, Mascara

Third Drawer: Blush, Highlighters, Fave Lip Products

Fourth Drawer: Eyeliners, Eye Bases (stick & pots), Single Shadows

Fifth [Top] Drawer: Palettes, Double Ended Brushes

On top I have a letter divider I picked up at Marshall's with some palettes I love and use a lot in it, a bowl that was my grandmother's with my beauty blenders and a few small brushes in it, and some Urban Decay Primer Potion.

I am simply loving the eDiva Duchess.  It streamlines my most used and favorite products and makes it so easy and quick to find what I need.  The quality is so much better than the acrylic boxes I have seen at Marshalls or Target.  Also, the fact that eDiva has a payment plan is a great option that I haven't seen anywhere else.

eDiva's organizers are amazing for a variety of people from those who have a small makeup collection thst just want to keep everything consolidated on a dresser or in a bathroom without a vanity to the makeup extrodionIre who wants to showcase high end makeup to those like me who are the happy medium and just want to streamline the process.

Check out eDiva on their website here.

I hope to do a whole vanity tour soon - it's a vintage mirror and vanity set that was my grandmother's and it means so much to me.
