♥ GlamCubes – A girl can never have too much makeup right? That only means that you are going to need somewhere to put it all. And in walks Glamcubes….

The one i have has a flip lid compartment and 3 drawers. The bonus with Glamcubes is that is comes with drawer dividers !!! I got 3 with mine, i choose a 4, 6 and 8 dividers.
