Honest reviews


good for the price

I do like this make-up bag. It’s compact yet holds a lot. Ironically, a seam that separates the brushes ripped today. Not the end of the world especially given the cost of the bag.

I did not receive what is pictured.

The bag I received is the same size, color and outside appearance- However, on the inside, the zippered compartment is Netted- not clear plastic like in the photo. As well, the other side has Pockets- not stretchy holder rings. There isn’t a large ring on the protective flap either. I had to cut open two of the smaller pockets to make one big one, which tore the material. Speaking of material- the polyester is flimsy and has already torn in a couple of places.Overall the bag is too small to fit my daily carry-along items, and I could have paid less for something better. Don’t waste your time or your money.

Holds almost enough

I really like the bag and it holds almost everything I need. Just wish it would hold a little bit more. I would love to be able to add eye shadow, liner and mascara to the case..

Great makeup bag

I ordered this bag as a gift. I haven’t given it to her yet, but I think she will love it. I previously ordered one for myself and it is perfect for all my makeup products as well as the brushes and small mirror.

pocket was broken

Pocket was frayed on edged, so it wouldn’t close and everything falls out. I wasn’t given a receipt so I am unable to return it.

basic makeup bag

great basic makeup bag to keep your portable stuff in. I bought this for the car, the “emergency” kit and it works great. couple spaces for brushes, it expands if you want to put more stuff in… it’s just a basic bag, but has a couple bonuses.

Bare Escentuals makeup bag

This makeup bag is nice and I like a lot but its extremely small. Although I make good use of it. love the brown color on the outside of this makeup bag overall I make good use of this makeup bag. But I must tell u to this bag is not that pratical. Kristen

Perfect little make up bag for me.

I really wanted a simple make up bag that could keep my brushes separate from my make-up.This make up bag was perfect for it. I don’t like opening up the extension because it makes the bag seem a bit flimsy. If you are someone who is going to carry a lot of make up this probably isnt the bag for you, but if you just need it for the basics (powder,blush,mascara, eyeliner, concealer, lip balm …) then this bag is perfect for you.

Great Compact Makeup Bag

I use this bag when I travel. It holds brushes well and since it’s expandable it also holds a lot of makeup. Well worth the price.

I have to totally disagree with the person who said the picture is deceiving and the bag is too small. I was so surprised when it was delivered. It is big enough to hold ALL of my makeup and ALL of my brushes and that’s not an easy thing to do. I have 5 of the big brushes, you know like the ones you apply foundation, mineral veil, blush, Luminizer, etc. It has slots big enough for all of them. And I am a Bareminerals collector. I have it all and it all fits in this bag. I am so glad I did not read that review until after I had ordered the bag. Get it, you won’t regret it.

Fits the basics!

Before I became a lipstick and eyeshadow hoarder, I used this to store all my brushes and makeup. Now I just use it when I’m traveling. It’s big enough to hold all the basics — I can fit the six brushes I use, my primer, my foundation, two blushes, contour-er, highlighter, and mineral veil, along with a few small eyeshadow palettes without overstuffing it. Sometimes I end up overstuffing it (makeup is like clothes! You don’t know what you might want or need to wear! Really!), but it’s never broken and I’ve had it for probably at least five years. It’s a good bag for when I’m just staying somewhere for a night or two.
