Home and Away Cosmetic
I was first drawn to the Home and Away Cosmetic bag for my makeup because of the layout and design. My first thought after I received it in the mail however was that it was way too big and would take up too much room while traveling. I was on the fence about returning it and decided that the only way I would know if I liked it was to try it so I loaded it up and used it on a trip this summer.
What I discovered is that I LOVE the Home and Away Cosmetic! As stated, my first draw was the layout and design. I wanted a bag that had an open area where my loose powders, bronzer, larger palettes, etc. would be able to sit upright instead of on their side. The open area is perfect for all of my larger packaged cosmetics and palettes. The pockets along the side are perfect for my individual eye shadows, blushes, lip balms, pencil sharpener, and more. I used the zippered pocket on the lid for all of my pencily type products like eyeliner, eyebrow pencil, mascara, tweezers, eye brushes, tube of eye primer, lip gloss, etc. I put my makeup brushes in the open area on top of my loose powders and palettes. My makeup fit perfectly! What I discovered - it was big in all the right areas without being too big for traveling.
What's to LOVE about the Home and Away Cosmetic:
- The layout and design allows for easily finding what you need without digging through products.
- Feels more like a makeup drawer instead of a makeup bag so traveling feels more like home.
- The pockets on the outer wall and zippered pocket keep you organized without having too many separate areas to open and close.
- It is not overly structured and constrictive. The bag will conform to what you put inside it.
- The handle on top lays completely flat for easy packing.
- Wipeable liner keeps it clean.
Like so many other products, the Home and Away Cosmetic could be used for various items. I could see my daughter using it for her hair accessories with hair ties, bobby pins, clips, color chalk, etc. in the pockets, larger headbands, bows, and brushes in the open area and combs in the zippered pocket. It could also be used for jewelry, craft tools, sewing, and more.

Perfect travel cosmetic
I got this before I went on a week long trip to Boston. This fit everything I needed and more. I was able to fit two travel size shampoos, two travel size conditioners, two travel size body wash, a travel size deodorants, my toothbrush, toothpaste, contact solution, extra contacts, my glasses in a hard case, q-tips, hair ties, pain medicine, and my prescriptions. This cosmetic held a lot. The handle folded down flat without sticking up which was nice. It didn't take up a lot of room in my suitcase which was super packed with two sets of clothing for each day. I love this case it can hold everything I need. I can even store everything in it until I need it agin and not have to repack it. Great cosmetic.

Perfect for home and away!
I bought this in the pattern Va Va Bloom and its been a wonderful companion. I currently live in two places and this works perfectly for me. It fits all my make up, lotion, and jewelry and I never have to worry about packing and forgetting something. It fits nicely in my suitcase as well. Highly recommend it!
