Love my VB Large Cosmetic!
Originally, I purchased the Large Cosmetic as a birthday gift for my sister. She fell in love with it, and so did I! I ended up buying one for myself in Provencal later this Summer and it is such a convenient bag!
I can easily fit my VB Medium Cosmetic inside, which holds my makeup. The Large Cosmetic goes on all overnight trips with me, where I easily fit my toothbrush and toothpaste, travel size shampoo and conditioner, and other little things like tweezers, ponytails, headbands, cotton balls, Q-tips... Basically everything I need in small proportion.
The one thing I did not like at first was that there are no interior or exterior pockets for separate storage; this is why I also bought the Medium Cosmetic, so it wasn't so cluttered!
Another plus: When it is zipped, it's shape holds well. And when It is unzipped, the top easily widens so that I have easier access to everything inside and I don't have to dig around so much.
Also, the interior is a wipe-able plastic material that is see-through, so you can still see the interior design. Although I have yet to use the exterior loop for its original purpose, hanging the bag, it is great to clip bobby pins onto! Now they don't get lost in my cupboard.
As always, love the colors and patterns! It is a great cosmetic and I know it will be around for a very long time. My only recommendation is to get the medium or small cosmetic if you would like to get rid of some of the clutter. Other then that, FANTASTIC purchase.

Perfect for tanning!
I use this as my bag for the tanning salon. I can fit all kinds lotion bottle sizes in it and can usually fit about 3 bottles, a face lotion, and even a lot of sample size packets, goggles and any other small thing that I need. I couldn't complain about anything and LOVE that it's lined in case anything pops it's easy to clean. I have this bag i the small and the large and I'm considering a large one again for my gym things.

Quality bag, with protection!
I recently bought this large cosmetic in Plum Crazy, and am totally in love. I use it for liquids and girly unmentionables. I never have to worry about spillage because the lining would clean up easily.
I have referred friends and they use this bag in the same way now. I also plan on purchasing my mother one in Canyon, and another to match my large duffle in Cocoa Moss solely for traveling.

Love it soooo much
I got the large cosmetic bag for my daughter in the pattern of tutti frutti,because she needed a large pencil bag and this was the closest I could find and it's a very vibrant and pretty pattern!!! I just love it and it is HUGE to fit all her necessities for school! I highly recommend this as a pencil bag and a make up bag!!!!! I have lots and lots of of other vera bradely stuff and it's just gorgeous but very expensive although it's worth it's price $!!!!!!

Large Cosmetic...Very Pleasantly Surprised!
I have been a fan of Vera Bradley products for many years now. My first VB cosmetic bag was a gift, the “Small Bow Cosmetic” in 2009 and it is still in great condition after years of constant use. I had the pleasure of getting the “Trip Kit” during a retirement sale at my local VB retailer a few years ago in my favorite VB pattern to date, Purple Punch.
Recently, there was an online promotion involving certain patterns, so I decided to try the current version of the cosmetic bag and purchased both a large and medium in Very Berry Paisley. I have to say, I am so pleasantly surprised at the function/size of this large cosmetic bag! For years, I have been using a cosmetic bag (as my toiletry kit for travel) that was a gift with purchase with some perfume and it was honestly my favorite travel accessory. I loved the size of the bag and how it fit perfectly in the corner of my luggage (note: I don’t check bags when I travel, so maximizing space is really important to me). When the VB large cosmetic arrived and I opened the box and saw it, I was nervous that all of my contents would not fit. Well…not only did everything fit, but there’s so much room to spare! I have already transferred all of my items out of my other bag into this one and it is ready to go on a few trips (2 domestic and 1 international) that I have over the next few months. I’m so excited about this purchase! Thanks, VB, once again for wonderful travel and organizational accessories! I’ll be back for more!

I have lots of girly gear!!!
I ordered this large cosmetic bag in the 'Portobello Road' pattern and it was a great purchase! When I travel I always use this bag to put my shampoos, perfumes, soaps, and makeup in. I love the plastic lining because if one of my soaps spill, I can just wipe the plastic clean. The print is cute and the bag fits everything you need in it.

The name says it all
"Large Cosmetic?" "Go Figure!!"
These were my thoughts when I went into my local VB store and notice these wonderful goodies. I instantly purchased one and started using it as a bag to hold all of my hair stuff for ballet (I'm talking: 3 brushes, large can of hairspray, a Brush and Pencil pouch, baby powder, ect.). WONDERFUL!!The only dislike that I have with this bag is that after almost constant use, the top corners of the bag (the plastic lining) has cracked and split!! :( A wonderful product otherwise.

I love the large cosmetic. I had one in Call Me Coral that went along with my laptop back and other items. But recently my house burned down and my call me coral items were in it. Luckily I managed to save my laptop backpack but that was it :(. So I just got a new one in Va V Bloom. I love it so much! I use it all the time because it can fit all of my items!
-my electric tooth brush
-my full sized toothpaste
-two shampoo and conditioner which are full sized
-plenty of hair bands
-my bed head tigi after party
I would definitely recommend this cosmetic bag to all of my friends!

Good for my dance recitals!
It's easy to use and holds a lot. I used it for my dance recital along with the small and medium cosmetics to hold hair nets, bobby pins, etc. It was great, but I wish it was just not as big and easier to carry around. Btw I got it in Ellie Blue. The large cosmetic would be great for traveling, but not to use everyday.

Perfect "Cosmetic" Bag!
Honestly, this bag is great for ANYTHING. It is a great size. I originally ordered the medium, but I decided it was too small so I exchanged it for this size & it is perfect. I am having a baby in a few weeks & I used this to pack all my of necessities for the hospital. It can fit all my travel sized cosmetics, my iPad charger, my laptop charger, my camera, camera charger, extra batteries & there is room for much more! I highly recommend! You won't be disappointed.
