I briefly mentioned my new make-up bag in this post. I had been lusting for the Sephora "Poppy" Make-Up bags since they came out in February or March but knew they'd go on sale so I waited. The collection included make-up bags of various sizes (large travel, medium, pencil, etc.) and came in yellow, green, pink, and lavender in choices of solid or floral prints. I got this bad at a steal. It was originally $40 but I got it for $20 (on a giftcard) so it was kind of free. =) I was sad that they didn't have anymore of the green in store but lavender was my second choice so I got it anyways. (All the large sizes sold out online just days after they went on sale.) THEN, I went to Sephora last Tuesday and saw the green!! I almost went ahead and bought it but I talked myself out of it because there was a teensy tiny mark on it. EW! Anyways, here's the bag..
I don't really like the little pink flower keychain and matching zippers but they can easily be replaced.
Look at the inside! on the left is a huge clear zipper bag that you can take out. Then you get another medium sized clear zipper bag that attaches in the center. There's also a mirror with a lavender frame included. Then on the right is a zippered compartment (same size as the removable bag on left) but you can't take this one out. It's part of the bag. What I don't like about this is that if there's any spillage/mess, you can clean the plastic clear part but can't clean the fabric part that is part of the bag. I wish it was plastic-y all around.
This is what it looks like with the bag on the left taken out.
Fabric floral print.
And look what I found! A mark! This is smaller than the mark I saw on the green bag but I was seriously contemplating on keeping the bag because of this stupid pen mark. I hate when you buy something new and it had marks/loose threading/missing buttons/etc. Come on!! We're paying for something new -not something broken/stained/etc. If that were the case, I would've gone to a thrift store or the flea market.
Overall, I like the bag -with the exception of that pen mark. It would be better in green but lavender was better than pink and yellow would've gotten dirty. I do wish that the one compartment was all plastic-y and not half fabric because it's way easier to keep clean. It's a little big -something that I'd probably take as a carry-on or keep with me instead of squeezing it into my suitcase. This really isn't my ideal bag though. I'm looking for one of those oval-ish traincases where there's 3 compartments -1 on top, 1 in the center, and then a large 1 at the bottom. Haven't had any luck yet. I'm going a little crazy with the make-up bags though. This should be my last one for awhile. The majority of them don't even get any use! ..But I'm still looking for The One.
