I dread shopping for a new makeup bag because I'm never happy with them. Once I find one that I actually like I will hold on to it until it is literally falling apart because it's so rare for me to find one I like. All of that being said, I love this little bag. I bought it on a whim because I needed something quick to replace my existing bag. It looks pretty small but it holds a lot of stuff. It is just the perfect size to hold all of my daily essentials. The wire in the top allows you to open it up & see inside easily while your putting on your makeup.
