Newsflash - this makeup bag holds makeup! Right, that's the intro out the way, I've been sitting here for the last hour with loads of stuff I want to type about this bag, but failing to think of a way to introduce it... bad blogger I know.
So this little beauty is by Marc Jacobs, it's somewhat smaller than my old makeup bag, but that's a good thing, god knows I carry FAR too much makeup around with me and almost never use it, so this was a good opportunity to slim down my collection to the bits and pieces I'm most likely to use.
Ever heard of neoprene? Yep, me too. Did you know what it was? Nope, me neither. Well, I do now since this is a neoprene makeup bag, in a crocodile print. It's well padded/cushioned and has a nice tie on the zip to make it easier to open and close.
Across the front in a little gold coloured strip is the 'Marc by Marc Jacobs' logo/branding. As much as I haven't photographed everything I've managed to fit in here, it does fit quite a lot. One of the things I loved about receiving this was the beautiful packaging it came in - a Harvey Nichols bag, tied at the top, then this wrapped in tissue paper and a ribbon, all very pretty and felt very luxurious.
When I was asked to pick which colour makeup bag I wanted, I nearly opted for the pink, but I thought I'd go outside my comfort zone and pick the green one instead and I'm so glad I did, as bright as it is, I really like it - why stay safe all the time with these things eh?
Harvey Nichols currently has this on offer, reduced from £55* to £11 (bargain!!!!), have a look here. I'm not sure how long it'll be at that price, so if you're in the market for a new makeup bag it might be worth snapping up (don't worry, I'm not on commission, I just really like it) :)
If you haven't checked out the Marc Jacobs collection over at Harvey Nichols, there's a nice selection of sunglasses, perfume and a few other bits if you want to take a peek :)
