When Julie asked me if I would like to review a cosmetic bag for her I jumped at the chance as i’m very girlie and always have a lippy, lip balm and eye liner at least dotted around my bag somewhere – where that is i’m never actually sure as they always get lost in the bottom of my bag never to be found again!
I must admit, I hadn’t heard of Julie Slater and Son before so I popped over to their website to have a look around. I was very impressed, their website is bright, fun and very easy to navigate and their range of goods looked great so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on my cosmetic bag/pencil case.
When the postman brought my parcel I couldn’t wait to open it and see this up close, I was greeted with a lovely sight when I opened the brown package, a beautifully wrapped present in a gorgeous turquoise thick paper tied with a luxury ribbon. It was almost a shame to unwrap this but I did and found a white sturdy gift box containing a beautiful pink leather cosmetic bag/pencil case.
The case itself is made from a soft pink leather and has matching pink stitching along all seams and also a matching pink zip beautifully finished with a pink bow. The inside is finished with a soft beige leather. It is very obvious that a lot of love and care has gone into these bags and the company’s name is proudly embossed on the front of this bag.
They may look small but are actually desceivingly quite spacious inside – I have put this to the test and took it to the Lollibops festival with me on Friday, where I managed to easily hold a lipstick, lip balm, hair band, 3 tampons, 2 pens, spare change and an extra dummy for Emmy!
These Make-up bags are perfect travel sized bags or could be used as pencil cases at work or at home and at a very reasonable price of £21.50 would make great presents for teachers or friends. They are Smythson quality products but at a fraction of the price. They also come in a wide range of colours – Pale Blue, Hot Pink, Poppy Red, Tan and Purple.
My Hot Pink bag is now a firm favourite of mine and I have already started picking out other items I NEED to treat myself to and adding them to my shopping list including a new purse with matching over night bag to start with.
