As you know, we were in New York a couple of months ago and when wandering through the little stalls at Bryant Park, I came across one that stopped me in my tracks. It was full of makeup bags of all sizes. I'm saying they're makeup bags, but they were really just pouches. In my mind though, I could only picture the makeup I'd put into them all, so I'm calling them makeup bags.
I digress though. Designer Pamela Barsky has pouches galore with witty, sassy phrases on the front and you can see the whole collection here in her Etsy shop. I wish I'd bought the one about the sisters now that I look through them! We'd laughed about it at the time but I ended up picking up these two and they're perfect for me.
They're just your run of the mill fabric pouches, but it's the phrases that make them special. I think I'm a little bit obsessed with these and they're both just under the €15 mark which makes them tres affordable.
Those of you who know me and have seen me without mascara knows why I needed to get this one. I look like a weirdo without my lashes fully mascara-ed and no matter how busy or late I am, mascara is a must. Hence this bag...
And again, if you know me, you know I'm obsessed with New York. I'm already planning on going back next year (if I can stop buying makeup) and I don't think it'll ever lose it's magical effect on me. So I needed this obvs...
I have deemed these my "good" makeup bags and only the best makeup will be allowed to live in there. Speaking of which, I must do a What's in my makeup bag post or video to show you what I'm testing out at the moment! I think I love these more than any other makeup bag I've ever bought because they have proper meaning for me. I smile when I see them and that's always a good thing right?
So tell me, am I alone in my makeup bag hoarding tendencies?
