Clean Up Your Act! (GIVEAWAY!)
I try to keep all my frequently used products in a makeup bag that I can tote around with me. The problem with this is that my bag tends to get overfilled quickly as I add new products, and things seem to get messy. There is nothing worse than opening up a bag that looks good on the outside only to find spills, stains, lint, pencil shavings, and other mysterious messes junking up the bag lining.
I recently received a new makeup bag to try out, a Vemayca Cosmetic Bag with a removable Soft Peal Lining. This is a new kind of bag designed to help us with our cosmetic cleanliness. The outside of the bag is quite lovely. It's soft but it also feels sturdy and substantial. It has a plain but stylish gray exterior and two generously sized pockets. It also comes in a bright, feisty red. The inside of this bag, though, is what makes it innovative.
The lining is made with a flexible but durable liner that snaps in and out. You can use the bag without the liner, remove the liner to clean it (in the delicate cycle with a mild detergent), or replace the liner entirely if it gets really messy. Nice! I don't know how many cosmetics bags I've thrown out because they're messy beyond help on the inside. That seems like such a waste, especially when the outside of the bag still looks good.
I really like the look, feel, and function of the Vemayca Cosmetic Bag. The bags cost $25 or $35 (depending on the style you go for) and the linings are $7.50 for one or $15 for a pack of three.
Want a Vemayca Cosmetic Bag of your own? Thanks to Emery Lane PR, I'm giving one away. To enter, please leave a comment below, like Vemayca on facebook and/or follow them on Twitter. This contest is open to US residents only. I'll pick a winner at random next Wednesday. Good luck!
