Note: my experience was with "shop & save". I don't know about any other sellers.
I have tried to order this cosmetic bag twice and both times, they sent the "Ecotools Alicia Train Case" instead. And it is a pain to return/exchange it. Amazon will give you credit, you have to print the shipping label, re-package the train case, bring it to a UPS store/drop off, and place another order for the cosmetic bag (because I thought maybe it was a fluke that I was sent the wrong item). Apparently, it was not. My replacement arrived yesterday and it was, again, the train case. Maybe they are out of this item, so they are sending the train case instead. But I wanted this item, in addition to the train case. I had also ordered the train case and received that item as expected. If you want the "cosmetic bag", go look at the "Ecotools Alicia Train Case", because it appears that is what you will get. Very disappointed. I wish they would just say they are out of it, rather than repeatedly send the wrong item.
One of my makeup bags recently fell apart after years of use, and I was in the market for a new one. My friend had previously purchased the Ecotools Alicia Deluxe Pencil Case, Beige/Sage, One Size for me, which I keep my eye shadows and pencils/extra makeup brushes in, and I decided to get this case, which matched it. I received the design that is pictured, and found that it's the perfect size to hold all of my makeup essentials. The design is cute, and the eco-friendly factor is a plus! The only problem I foresee is that the hemp exterior might eventually get a little dirty/stained from makeup, but it seems like it would be easy to clean per the instructions in the item description. Overall, it's a lovely cosmetic bag for a great price!
I used this bag as a pencil box and it works great! It is very pretty and roomy. It does get dirty kind of fast, though - I've had it for about 9 months now and the color's a bit crude. It should be easily washable.
I've been using this makeup bag every day to hold my everyday makeup, and I love it so far! It's very spacious and very cute; I can put several eye shadow palates and all my random pencils and mascaras and my eyelash curler. The hemp material is eco-friendly and overall it's just an awesome makeup/cosmetic bag! You should get it if you want a medium sized makeup bag for travel or everyday use!
I have been very pleased with this lovely make-up bag! It is well-made, chemical free and very cute. The zipper works well with no catches, and I can stuff quite a bit of make-up into this bag. For example, I have 2 face powders, some mineral makeup foundation, a mascara, 3 four-color eyeshadows, 4 eyeliner/brow pencils, tweezers and 4 lipsticks in my bag right now. I am quite happy with this purchase :)
Have you ever noticed how some make up bags have a chemical, plastic-y smell? And that smell ends up tainting the products you put within said bag...gross! Not this lovely little eco-friendly creation.
As one who's slowly trying to incorporate more earth-friendly and eco-kind items into her everyday life, I jumped on this item when shopping for a new bag to house my travel make ups. It's durable, roomy enough for the essentials, and as a bonus, pleasantly designed. Definitely one of my fav purchases of late. :)
First let me say that the bag pictured is NOT the bag I received. That is the reason I only gave it 3 stars. It is similar, with a very cute flower design. Instead of just an image, it has some embroidery around the lines of the flowers. The colors are different as well, although the bag itself is still off-white. It's a nice size that accomodates all my at-home makeup, including long brushes. I recommend this bag if you can be a little flexible on the appearance. It's really cute, functional, and appears well-made.
