Paul & Joe Make-up Bag

After looking for a new make-up bag for a while, I came across the Paul and Joe Make-up folder type cosmetics bag but unfortunately, I was too late on the hype and it had been discontinued. So, this little paisley print number was next on the list. 
If you saw my Birthday Wish list, you would have seen that this was on there and I was lucky enough to get it for my Birthday off my Mum and Dad! 

 The beautiful paisley print is one of my favourite things about this make-up bag and the fact it comes with a little brush holder is an added bonus. The only problem is that it doesn’t fit Real Technique face brushes because they’re a little too chunky. I’ve popped 6 eye brushes in there though and few bigger crease brushes from Crownbrush and they fit ok - the flap just doesn’t come down to where it should slide into the ribbon holder. I guess smaller travel brushes would be more suited for this. 

You can fit quite a lot in it though! I’ve managed to get (for blogging purposes to let you know how big it is) A MAC MSF, A Real Techniques face brush and Buffing brush, A Porefessional primer, a MAC Quad palette, a 17 On the Spot Foundaton, a Phoaar Paint concealer, a Mascara and Eyeliner, a set of Eyelash curlers, a Nanshy eye brush and blending brush, a MAC lipstick and a lip balm. So, the essentials for a basic face can all fit in easily and the zip closes easily too so you know that nothing is going to fall out! 

It’s the perfect size to pop in your handbag or to use for travelling. You can buy it for £20.50 or pop into your local Selfridges or Paul and Joe stockist.
Have you seen any other Make-up bags that you love!?
