I receicved this cosmetic bag as a gift in Island Blooms and I must say that it is very useful. I was able to fit a four color eyeshadow palette,liquid foundation, EOS lip balm, 5 small tubes of lipgloss, a makeup sponge, face powder, a tube of mascara and an eyelash curler. I was really surprised that I was able to fit all my makeup inside it because it looks small on the outside but is actully big on the inside. I'm very impressed!!!

I hesitated to purchase due to concerns about the mirror from other reviews. Mine is fine, and I wonder if, perhaps, the protective cover film was not removed to prevent the mirror from being scratched in transit? It's not easy to see that there is a "film" over the mirror as it covers completely from all edges...I had to gently get a wrinkle in it to be able to remove it. Hope this helps, just in case that is the issue, as there is no indication of a protective covering. The mirror isn't top quality but it sure is serviceable for this cute case.

My new fav cosmetic bag!
This is my first Vera Bradley cosmetic bag, and I can say that it is NOW MY FAVORITE! I am always looking for a great cosmetic bag that is a cute color and has an easy lining to clean. I've been using Vera handbags for years but never owned a cosmetic bag - will never own any other brand now! I can wipe the lining clean and clean the outside!!! It is the perfect size to hold my essentials - mineral veil, buki brush, lipstick, gloss, lotion, eye drops, medicine tin, nail file & will now add a cosmetic mirror. I tried using the included mirror but it is awful, it give you a distorted view of yourself and makes it not very fun to use. That is the ONLY FLAW TO THIS BAG! I have used it in my Happy Snails 3 pocket tote, Rosy Posies Sweet Pleat bag, & Pink Cupcakes Gabby. It fits COMFORTABLY in all three bags along with my other essentials: carry it all wristlet, sunglasses case, a notebook & I have plenty of room left over. If you haven't owned this style of cosmetic bag I HIGHLY recommend it!!!

Great size cosmetic bag!
I just received the Mirror Cosmetic bag in the Camellia pattern (my favorite!), and LOVE the size - easily fits my Mary Kay compact (for powder touchups), a lipstick, lipgloss, lipliner, and mascara with room to spare. Perfect size! Like a previous reviewer said, the mirror isn't the best (otherwise I'd give 5 stars), but the bag itself is great!

Really cute and perfect size for essentials
Received this today in Ellie Blue....So cute and the perfect size for my essential cosmetics and hair accessories. It fits easily inside the Weekender in any one of the many pockets. I like that it can be wiped out inside, and that the little mirror fits neatly in an inside pocket. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the mirror is not very clear and distorts your reflection. It's ok for touch ups, but not very good quality, so it isn't something I'll turn to when I need an actual mirror for application. Fortunately, this bag easily holds my compact travel mirror. Overall, a really cute item for those who want a smaller cosmetic case.

Really cute and holds a lot!
I love my mirror cosmetic in Ellie Blue. There's elephants on both sides which makes me happy. It holds everything I need and more - several lipglosses, a small hand lotion, antibacterial handsoap, nail file, etc. The little mirror is a really nice addition! The lining inside makes it easy to clean. The mirror cosmetic fits in all my purses and goes with me everywhere. Highly recommend!
