Last week I discovered the Rephr Modular Vanity System and was intrigued enough to purchase a couple of sets.
The unique aspect of the system is that it’s “vanity system comprised of individual modular components that can be integrated together with magnets”
I have a few acrylic storage pieces here and there but very few match and it felt like it was just everywhere.
Each section is $20 but I purchased it when it was on sale (as of 10/24 the sale is still live).
I have a lot of palettes and brushes and store the rest of my makeup seperate so I wasn’t going to get components E or B but in the end I picked up one of each to test the entire system.
I picked up 3 of component “A”, which is two “cup” holders for brushes, two component “C”, designed for palettes and has a few staggered short fronts, two component “D”s which are described to be to extend component “C” and one component “E” and one component “B”
My packaged arrived fairly quick, within a week of ordering and I set it up right away. My immediate complaint is the frustrating packaging. Each component comes in a seperate box that has the little lip thing on the side that slides into the slot on the top. I ended up just ripping most of the tops off to get the product out.
Once I got everything out it was pretty simple to snap the pieces together. Like I thought though, component “C” and “D” don’t tie in together well. The different sizes of the front panels make it too awkward to use side by side. In hindsight I would get only component “C” or “D”, but I don’t think both are necessarily (or functional together). Since I purchased two of each, I placed each type together. One component “A” fits perfect behind two of the other components, which makes me wonder why those aren’t sold as sets of two as well.
The magnets are sturdy and the entire system holds together nicely. I love that I don’t have to worry about the individual components getting knocked around when I have products stored in them. I also thing the almost fully opaque black gives the system a sleek look. The three “A” components fit perfectly across my two cube bookcase.
As I was writing this, I realized components “C” and “D” aren’t meant to go side by side. “D” can be used to extend “C” in depth. I can’t set my components up like this because of the depth of my bookcase.
I used components “A” to hold slimmer palettes and brushes. And most of the other spaces were also used for different size palettes.
Overall I like the system, the way everything clips together with the magnets and the uniform look.
Do you need this? No. Are there more inexpensive options? Yes. But it’s a nice investment and I would definitely recommend it.
