I got the small cosmetic thinking that it would be big enough to fit my nail polish. Fortunately it does but there is not enough room for growth. I can fit 5 essie nail polishes and two nail files. Anything more would be pushing it. I do love it though and I got it in Priscilla Pink.

Perfect purse cosmetic
I love this cosmetic bag! I own it in two colors & it fits perfectly in my purses (the draw-string cross body & the saddle hipster). It holds a fold-up hairbrush, travel- size body spray, two lip glosses and a powder compact with no problem. Our daughter & granddaughter also use the small cosmetics & love them. They make wonderful gifts!

This was my first Vera piece which I received from a friend. At first I was unsure that I'd ever us it, but it soon became on of my favorite bag. The only downside is it's just a little small, it's difficult to fit my liquid foundation in with my powder foundation, eyeshadow, and other 'bulky' things. I love how it has a plastic lining on the inside, which makes it so easy to cleanup spilled makeup! Perfect gift.

Great for everyday!
I carry this in my On the Go bag, fits great! I keep my lipgloss, lip balm, travel size medicine bottle, tissues and more in it. It also makes changing bags very easy. Just grab it and put it in your other bag! I really need to buy other colors. My current one is Portobello Road. I think these would make an excellent gift.

I just bought my 10th small cosmetic!!!!
These little things are so so so practical! I get a new one each time I buy a new Vera Bradley bag to match! They are the perfect size for makeup, meds, spare contact lenses, travel sized cosmetics, hand sanitizer, lotion, wet naps - just about anything small you want to carry with you! I even use one as a coin purse in my car because the plastic lining makes these easy to wash and disinfect! Definitely looking forward to buying more when the new colours are released next week!

Wonderful for notecards!
I purchased two of these smaller bags for random small items. I use one to store an electric shaver and cord (great fit, just the right size) and another for note cards for school. I was in desperate need for something to keep my note cards organized for class and this was the perfect size for them. I couldn't be more satisfied.

This was the first Vera Bradley I ever got. I was a tween, so it was perfect for my small make-up needs, like a few lip-glosses, mascara, blush, and eye-shadow for sleep-overs. Sadly, I outgrew it, but upgraded to the medium cosmetic. I now use my small cosmetic for a pencil bag at school. It works perfectly!

I have many of these because I buy a matching one with each new purse I buy (so about one a year). They are the perfect size for holding all your little things in your purse/bag. I love that it has a plastic lining in case your lotion explodes or something. I love that I can just pull out my little cosmetic bag and easily find my little things. It's always packed full (headache medicine, lotion, band-aids and neosporin, nail clippers, floss, eye drops, a few cough drops, a couple of hair bands for my daughter, concealer, a couple of tea bags because I love my tea). I can't have a purse without this!

Great For Everyday Essentials
I had just left college, and this bag was a lifesaver when my schedule was really busy. I had it in Canyon, and it housed my powder, concealer, lip balm, lip gloss, eyeliner, mascara and eyelash curler. It was cute....but then I got bleach on the outside of the bag from bleaching my hair white. Oddly enough, IT LOOKED BETTER AFTER THE BLEACHING HAD HAPPENED. That little bit of bleach gave my cosmetics bag hues or oranges and yellows, reminding me of a sunset. I think that Canyon Light should be a new color!
