Using for a Jewelry Case
I read the reviews before purchasing and have been looking high and low for something that is not big and bulky to use when traveling to put my jewelry in. This is almost exactly what I wanted! It works really well with three good sized zippered compartments and a tie closure. I easily can put a ton of jewelry in here. I also could just save one compartment for makeup and I would not have to bring two different containers. I bought this in Ellie Blue along with the Get Carried Away tote and both work wonderfully when traveling. I'm really glad I bought this piece!

Wonderful Cosmetic Bag
At first I was skeptical about this bag because I didn't know if all of my makeup would fit in it. Needless to say, it did, and I love it! The bag expands so that it will allow more things to fit in it and my makeup is perfectly organized and held together nicely and compact.
Vera Bradley has the most wonderful prints and I believe every woman should own at least one of these bags. A lot of bags or not made strong enough to support the weight that you put into it, all of her bags are! Also, they are all washable!

I bought this in Tea Garden on sale from my local store. I had read the reviews and was skeptical but it turned out to be the prefect size for my normal everyday cosmetics.
In the top pouch i have my highlighter pen, concealer, eye shadow primer and 2 makeup sponges. In the second i have 2 mascaras and 3 eyeshadow quads. In the last pouch i keep all my eyeliners and other various tools like tweezers and nail clippers.
I love that it lays flat on my bed while I am using it and then folds to hang on my door knob. Perfect little case :)

New favorite makeup case
This is my new favorite makeup case. It holds everything I need. In the top compartment I can fit...
My travel tooth brush, travel tooth paste, travel mouthwash, mini hand sanitizer, floss and tweezers
In the second compartment I can fit
1 eyeshadow pallet (Maybelline with 4 different colors. It's very small and flat) 2 lip balms, 2 mascaras, mini deodorant, 2 (very short and skinny) eyeliners, eyelash curler
In the bottom compartment I put my mac makeup brush, small bottle of liquid Neutrogena acne solution foundation, small zip lock bag with Tylenol, 2 Chanel lip glosses, 2 pads, and 1 tampon
This product is great and holds a lot! But the thing is, you must keep every things flat. I've tried having bulky things in it and it does not fold up well at all. You also need to position everything properly for it close up well which is some what a hassle. But I don't mind at all.
I use this as my everyday makeup bug. However, if I were to travel I would need a lot more and probably would bring something else.

Great for everyday make-up
I am a performer, and therefor have a LOT of make-up, which I keep in a large case. I was really sick of having to search through all that to find what I use everyday. This solved my problem! I use the bottom pocket for foundation, powder and blush, the middle for mascara, eye liner, eye shadow, and eyelash curler, and the top for hair ties and pins. My large face brush I just fold up into the bad, which protects it from the outside world but doesn't squish the bristles. Keep in mind that none of my things are very large (two color set of eye shadow, flat powder compact). It folds up really well into a semi-flat case, which slides right into my cubby. It is pretty enough to be kept out, put I like mine put away. It could also be left open and hung out. Overall, I really like this product and plan on using it for a long time, both at home and when I travel.

Perfect for all those cables and gadgets
I use this to corral my jumble of various USB cables, chargers, external batteries, USB drives/etc, adapters, and earphones. It fits easily in my VB backpack along with my tablet, Kindle, and other miscellaneous stuff I use during the day.

Doesn't work well for cosmetics
I have been using this for the makeup I use every day for a couple of weeks now, and it just doesn't work. I can fit everything in it, but it doesn't fit on my small bathroom counter when opened up, and I have to keep unzipping and re-zipping the pockets to keep things from falling out. It doesn't help that one pocket zips on the opposite end as the others. It takes me a lot longer to do my makeup than if I were just digging things out of a single bag. I do like it though, and I'm confident I will be able to find another use for it - perhaps for jewelry or my diabetic supplies.

Keeps makeup organized throughout the trip!
I just brought this on a long vacation in Europe, when I applied makeup twice a day. By always keeping everything in the same clear pocket each time, I could quickly find things and was able to put on my makeup in minimal time. Top section held eyeshadow 4 pk, concealer tube, pencils and a sharpener; middle had another eyeshadow 4 pk, blush compact and 2 oversize mascaras; the larger pouch held 2 makeup brushes, a loose powder jar, and a hairclip. I used to spend too much time digging around trying to find things, but this way everything is separate and in plain view. Love it!

Great for Make Up
I just got this in the mail today, it fits all of my make up great. I have my eye shadows in one section, eye liners, brushes, and mascara in the middle section, and my foundation, lip glosses, and blush in the last section. However, I do wish it was a little bit bigger so it wasn't so snug. It is great for throwing it in the suitcase without having to worry about packing my make up and forgetting anything.
