If you were a pre-teen in the 1980s or ’90s, you need no introduction to the Caboodle. You packed your blue eyeshadow and velvet scrunchies in that accordion-like storage contraption, gave your bangs an extra spritz of Rave hairspray and off you went to a sleepover that probably involved calling the local radio station to request a Paula Abdul song.

But for the uninitiated, Caboodle sells compartmentalized beauty cases that allow you to neatly store makeup and hair goods (or even crafting supplies). They came about as a genius storage solution in the mid-1980s after Vanna White was photographed using a fishing tackle box to stow and carry her makeup collection.

And now that you’re up to speed on (or reminiscing about) the almighty Caboodle, we want to let you know that Ulta Beauty has an amazing deal: You can buy a Caboodle that’s stocked with makeup (58 pieces!) for $23.99 when you use this 20% off coupon.

The coupon, which is valid through Oct. 24, is good for one item and can be redeemed either in store or online (use code 896529 at checkout if you’re shopping online).

The beauty box (originally $29.99) comes in green or pink and is valued at $183 when you consider all the makeup that’s stashed inside.

The Caboodle, of course, comes with the signature flip mirror and a removable accessory tray.

As far as makeup goes, the Ulta Caboodle is stocked with the following cruelty-free products:

  • 36-shade eyeshadow palette
  • One  face palette with two bronzers, two blushes and a highlighter
  • One brow trio with two brow powders and one brow wax
  • Two lip glosses
  • Two sheer lip glosses
  • Two lip oils
  • One eyeshadow primer
  • One brow highlighter
  • One dual-ended brow pencil
  • One watermelon facial mist
  • One liquid blush
  • One blush brush
  • One eyeshadow brush
  • One brow brush

Now all you need is a hair crimper. (Honestly, this Wave Artist Deep Waver from Bed Head, $24.99 at Target, comes pretty close!)
