A Look Inside My Makeup Bag.


I recently ordered a handmade makeup bag on Etsy.

It's an oilcloth makeup bag by Lucy Blaire (her seller name is LucyBlaireCreations), and they have a few different prints listed but since I wanted this specific combination (olive colored zipper with the polka dot design), I ordered it through her 'custom' listing.

My bag is the large size and it measures 9.5" long, 4" wide, and 5" tall. The normal large bags retail for $18, but the custom large bags retail for $19. 

The bag itself is really cute and the oilcloth material means that it's shiny on the outside and can easily be cleaned and wiped down. On the inside, however, the bag is not lined and the material is not the same as it is on the outside (not shiny), and I'm not sure it can be cleaned or wiped off as easily. To me, that's a bit silly because if your makeup ever spilled and your bag got dirty, it'd be dirty on the inside, not the outside, and it's more important to me that the inside is easy to clean than it is the outside. Also, the bag is very thin and a bit flimsy - I just hope it lasts a decent while. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, but I feel it may be a bit overpriced considering how thin it is and the fact that it's not lined.


A look inside...

The bag is very big inside (hence the large size), and all the products I have in it right now only fill it up a little more than halfway. I like to keep my current favorite products and products I'm currently using in my makeup bag for easy access so that I don't have to dig through my entire makeup collection everyday to find them, but I keep the bag at home on my dresser. I don't actually take it with me in my handbag or anything :)

  1. Great post! I really must try the sheen supreme lipsticks :o)
    I think it's just me, but After an unfortunate incident where my fave mac blush got all smashed In my makeup bag, I'm kinda too scared to carry my good stuff in my handbag... I'm starting to think my fear is irrational though :) I just need a secure place to store them! :o)

  4. @Hannah and Phoebs: I use this bag just to hold products I'm currently using/loving, but the actual bag sits at home on my dresser. It's just easier to access them that way rather than having to dig through my entire makeup collection everyday trying to find everything. I don't actually take the bag with me in my handbag - it's far too big for that :)

  11. I think I'm the same skintone as you, could you tell me the shade of your MUFE face and body foundation? thank you! <3

  12. @LVMAKEUP: I agree :(

    @Janalyn: The horizontal zipper on the side doesn't zip or unzip; it's just there for decoration or in case you want to hang up your bag on something :) I think it's cute how they used extra zipper for that though!

    @thu: My shade is #20 :)

  20. Hi everyone! I just wanted to pop in and say that although the makeup bag isn't lined on the inside it is still fully washable as the fibers you may see inside are just like a gauze that keeps the oilcloth together. Essentially it's a framework for which the vinyl is laid around making it fabric like and sewable! I've also taken into account the "flimsy" problem and have switched oilcloth manufacturers for future bags so they have a bit more weight to them.

    Thanks so much for reviewing my makeup bag and I hope you're still enjoying it!
