I had to get online ASAP and talk about how much I love the Grand Cosmetic! Finally! I have been a Vera fan for years and have many items in many patterns. But the one thing I've always wished for is a toiletries bag that was bigger than the Large Cosmetic. It was just not quite big enough for travel. Now I can fit all my products, including full size products, hairbrush, medicines, and still have room! Plus I love that it has handles and pockets inside. Other features I always wished the Large Cosmetic had.

Perfect size for full-size shampoo bottles!
I bought the grand cosmetic in Blue Bayou. It's amazing! It fits full-size (not costco size) shampoo and conditioner bottles as well as anything else you might need for a short getaway! Inside, there are two slip pockets on one side and three slightly smaller slip pockets on the other. A word of caution though, unlike the other Vera Bradley cosmetic cases, this one is not lined with a thick plastic (it's like a thin polyester type of material) so if anything spills, it's more difficult to clean. The shampoo and conditioner bottles only fit lying down, not upright, so there is the risk that they could spill. I still put them in plastic zip lock bags before packing them in my grand cosmetic just in case they leak. Overall, a great travel accessory though. Blue Bayou is a lot brighter in person than online.

Holds a Lot!
I've been looking at this for some time wondering if I could get all of the "stuff" in it from my V.B. large hanging organizer (It takes up too much room in my suitcase#. Today, I bought it #Midnight Blues), brought it home, laid out my hanging organizer and began distributing everything from one to the other. Everything fit in those elastic compartments. I couldn't believe it. There's room in it at the bottom for my hair brushes. I'll probably purchase a small cosmetic for my makeup. That'll fit also. I don't know that I would recommend it for full-size bottles, though; they make not fit depending on how many you use. I use the travel size shampoos, etc. Anyway, I'm delighted with my purchase!
