If you grew up during the ’90s, chances are you had a Caboodles case or two. The perfect place to store your makeup, scrunchies, and even the keys to your Lisa Frank diary, they were the ultimate accessory of the decade. You may have thought they were a piece of history you’d never get back, but I have good news: you can order a vintage Caboodles makeup case on Amazon RIGHT NOW. Victory is yours!
- The color combo is to die for. Caboodles came in plenty of different colors, but the sea foam green and lilac colorway was pretty much the best. Thankfully, it’s available in 2019 to make you into the mermaid princess you wanted to be when you were 12 and have hopefully become in your 20s (or beyond).
- They come in tons of other colors too. If you decide the sea foam/lilac combo isn’t for you, no worries! You can also grab a Caboodles in black and white, hot pink and black, peach and seafoam, robin’s egg sparkle jellies (!!!), or hot pink. The choice really is yours!
- It’s actually incredibly functional. While most of us had a Caboodles as kids when we didn’t really have that much in the way of makeup to add to it, it’s surprisingly functional for our more adult collections. It holds plenty of lipsticks, blushes, foundations, and whatever else you want to throw in.
- It’s easy to clean. I don’t know about you, but my makeup bags get messy as hell when lids come off the lipsticks, the blush palettes accidentally open, and other random stains happen that I don’t totally understand. Because Caboodles are made of plastic, you can wipe them down with a damp cloth and voila, they’re like new.
- You can travel with it! If you’re someone who likes to travel and has a lot of stuff to bring with you, the Caboodles could be a good travel buddy. In addition to your makeup, it can also hold some mini bottles of shampoo and conditioner, soap, travel size hairspray, and some other goodies.
- $16.99 is a bargain to relive your youth. At the end of the day, I’d probably pay triple the asking price to recapture some of the magic of my youth. Thankfully, Amazon only wants about $17 ($15 for some of the other colors!) for a slice of childhood, and I can’t think of a better bargain.
