For the longest time I’ve been thinking about buying the Mary Kay travel makeup bag. I forget where I first heard about it. Maybe YT? Makeupally also has favorable reviews.
Basically it has 4 prism-shaped compartments that roll up into a square:
Compact, space saving, and with clear zippered compartments so you can see everything! That way you can separate each pouch for a different purpose: face, eyes, lips, etc. So everything you need is clearly visible and you no longer have to go digging and searching blindly.
The best thing about this bag is that I don’t need a separate bag/pouch/case for my brushes. One pouch is large enough to store a set of everyday makeup brushes and maybe even room for a few extras.
Luckily I found a dupe at JCPenney for a mere $6 on clearance! The only real differences are that its brightly colored, and the sides are not clear. It was by Elle (fancy that!!) but I’m unable to find it online unfortunately. I will link similar products below if you’re interested.
Bright punchy pink and orange! I do wish the sides were clear like the Mary Kay bag, but then again it was only $6.
Pouch contents from left to right:
Face, eyes, brushes, miscellaneous.
