The Etude House Princess Makeup Table I recently purchased is one of those items that leaves me wondering, “Did I really need this?” I’m a child at heart so needless to say when I saw the Etude House Princess Makeup Table I had a little SQUEE moment! They recently released this with the Etude House Princess Happy Ending Collection and I instantly had to have it. So, I had a very good friend of mine in Korea pick it up for me.
It’s kinda expensive if you’re grabbing it from friends/family or if you’re going the online route for a purchase from say E-bay. Reason being is the shipping kinda kills ya here. I believe it set me back like $12 or so dollars but with shipping it came out to more like $30.
Absurd? Probably since it is kinda a childish makeup organizer AND it’s plastic AND it’s not very sturdy AND I actually already have a very good 360 degree spinning organizer from Lori Greiner that Pursebuzz gifted to me for Christmas a few years ago!
But the heart wants what the heart wants….!
The Etude House Princess Makeup Table comes in a cute little box with pop up bow handles and a little white kitty! Inside you’ll find the table is in about two million parts (Not really, I just hate putting stuff together and it felt like a ton of different pieces). Technically it’ll take you 6-7 minutes to put together at most! It does come with a tube of crazy glue which is pretty essential when putting this together because I find the main frame work is very weak and wobbly if you don’t add a little glue to the base to keep the “walls” steady. There are also several shelves which you can switch and swap around as you see fit. I like the fact you can move the shelves around as needed but some are weak so you might want to glue them into place once you have them set up in the way you want. They include instructions for the putting this together but sadly, they aren’t in English. But no a problem as it is pretty self explanatory and simple enough to put together!
The unit is supposed to spin 360 degrees but it doesn’t spin as freely as I would like and drags a little depending the surface you set the organizer on.
I know I’ve ranted a lot so on to the good stuff….
It’s really cute isn’t it?
It’s pink! Ahhh! Needless to say once you have it glued together correctly, the unit shapes up well and makes a really pretty display for your Etude House makeup and skincare. The top portion has a spot for larger bottles or to store brushes, lipsticks, glosses, and eye pencils. The shelves can be used for jars, compacts, eyeshadows, etc….! I think my Lori Greiner Organizer holds about three times the makeup that the Etude House Princess Makeup Table does but heck, it isn’t as cute!
Do you need it?
But if you’re an Etude House fan, well, I can’t really blame you for wanting it!
