Home and Away Cosmetic
Great for Meds and Supplements!
I bought this on a whim for cosmetics but found it works well keeping all my supplements organized. If you take a lot of pills, this case is perfect. The shape accommodates the bottles perfectly and the side pockets can hold any droppers, spoons or smaller packets. Super-handy! (I may just buy another for my actual cosmetics!)

Amazing Make-up Bag
I'm a college student & my university apartment doesn't have much bathroom storage space, so this bag is perfect for holding all my essential make-up & products I use on a daily basis. I keep the bag in my room & whenever I'm getting ready I bring it to the sink area with me & I have all my products in one area. This is when its really nice to have the handle feature on the top.
Also a plus is the pockets that line the inside. They're great because the tops have elastic in them so you can stretch the pockets to fit whatever you want. I can fit so much in this bag, its seems a lot bigger than the dimensions given. When I go on a trip I can fit all my makeup & brushes, full size hair brush, toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant, full-size contact solution bottle, several bottles of nail polish, several medium size bottles of body spray/hair gel AND there's still room in the middle for my small cosmetic bag that holds my jewelry. For travel, the bag fits perfectly into the side pocket of my Vera extra large duffel bag.
I've had this bag for about a year now & I use it constantly, but it still looks brand new. The white background of the pattern isn't dirty at all, great quality. This is a must buy for any college student or person who loves to bring everything with them when they travel!!

I put my makeup brushes in the zippered top compartment to keep them snag free.. I LOVE the side elastic pockets!! nice for makeup removal wipes and jewelry.
Mine is in Tutti Fruitti. after the trip you just wash and hang dry.. this is MUST HAVE!

Good for those who love organization
I just got this bag, and I love it! I really like my stuff to be organized, and all the pockets of this cosmetic bag make keeping my makeup organized really easy. It's also a lot bigger than I anticipated, which is great! All my brushes fit nicely, so I don't have to worry about the bristles getting bent, and I have plenty of extra room, even after all my makeup is in there.

Cute Cosmetic Carrier
I have found myself really loving this cosmetics carrier. It looks so much bigger than what the measurements are and how it appeared online! I absolutely love all the separate pouches for my lip gloss, bronzer, blush, eye shadow, mascara,and small hair bands! If anyone was wondering i purchased this in Lola (which is probably cutest in this!) Also i should mention very easy to clean in case of any spills.

I have loved every Vera product I have bought (and I have a LOT) until this purchase. And I have been wanting this for so long! I finally bought it when there was a sale on Canyon (just to see if this was worth paying full price for a print I liked better), plus I had a coupon, so I got it so cheap I won't bother to return and will use it anyway. But I will definitely not use it for a travel bag, it is WAY too small. I am just really surprised at how small! I have the Grand Cosmetic and it is sooooo much better for toiletries for travel. Not only do I not like how short this thing is, I don't like how the top is attached, and it is NOWHERE near looking like it does in the picture....it does not stand like that it squishes into itself. First Vera product I don't like. I will just use it to store some makeup.

Great Cosmetic Bag Plus...
I purchased the Home and Away Cosmetic in the Midnight Blues pattern. I also purchased several other travel pieces including the Grand Traveler and Weekender in the same pattern. I absolutely love it. I have managed to fill the entire bag with cosmetics but in an organized fashion. The pockets around the inside perimeter are deep enough to secure lipsticks, blush sticks and other cylindrical shaped items as well as bottles of foundation without them moving around. I particularly like the zipped pouch in the lid. I am now able to keep my brushes and liner sticks separate.
In addition to the obvious reasons I purchase VB, like quality, colors, and patterns, the versatility of a VB product is remarkable. As I stated earlier, I originally purchased this product for its marketed purpose. I have decided since to order the same product for my cosmetics in Olivia pink and use the first Home and Away as a carrier for my travel C-PAP machine. The machine and cord are a perfect fit and can be carried on an airplane. How stylish is that! Thank you VB for another fine product.

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.
