Glitzy Glam Waffle Weave Makeup Bag

Now I have had this lovely addition for over a year now and I thought it was about time I got around to sharing my views on it with you all! 
So we all know who Elle and Blair are right? And we all know about their online store Glitzy Glam? Well it is full of all sorts of cute personalized girly things that make great gifts to your friends  to your self! 
I was a bit hesitant to purchase something off the site at first because I was skeptical about the quality and of course just skeptical about the entire website! But I realy really really wanted one of these makeup bags so I took the plunge and look what I got!


I love that I pretty much designed the look of my bag. You can choose a colour combo, the font you want, the pattern on your ribbon, if you want your entire name or just an initial and I saw that you can also choose between the waffle weave and terry (which was not an option when I ordered this a while back!)

I went with Black & White because I really do love all things plain and pretty. The colours are classic and to be honest I get bored of pink sometimes and I am a bit too old for a polka dot ribbon (though I don't dare judge if you're older and like them!)


Now one hugeeeee benefit of this make up bag? It's not just a makeup bag! Its a ginormous makeup bag that you could fit enough crap in there to weigh down a hippo. It is certainly big enough to fit one of those 88 palettes, you can see from my pictures I have 2 mac palettes in there plus all my other bits and pieces that I need for 4 weeks of travel! 


The lining on the inside makes it very easy to clean, after over a year of use I think I ought to do something about cleaning mine! But all in all I am very impressed with the quality of the product and I can see me using this for years to come (and holiday after holiday)!



What more is there to say?! I recommend it as a gift to yourself or a gift for a girlfriend or sister or even Mum!  In terms of shipping etc, I received it from USA to Australia in less than 2 weeks, it came gorgeous wrapped in clear plastic with a bow on it like a gift and service has been great. I also was emailing them about another product they used to have listed and I think it was Elle and Blairs Mum who was responding and she was very prompt and extremely helpful! 

You can purchase the makeup bag HERE.
