What's In My Makeup Bag? // Orla Kiely Review

Finding a make up bag that fits all of my make up in has always been a struggle. They are always too big or too small for all of the items I want to carry but since I have had this Orla Kiely Wash Bag* in my life I have been using it non stop and it is the perfect size for my handbag too! This print is gorgeous for the sunnier weather too.

Orla Kiely Washbag Review
This wash bag is perfect for any Spring trips you may be going on. The print is a gorgeous square flower design with pops of bright orange which I am a little bit obsessed with. The wash bag has a matte finish to the outer material and is actually wipeable which is perfect if you have a spillage or leave it in your handbag like I do and it gets a little bit dirty. The wash bag itself has two main compartments, a large one at the back and a slim one on the front of the wash bag. Inside the back one is a small open pocket which I use to keep hair bands and travel make up brushes in so they don't get lost within all of the makeup. The front one is perfect for keeping those items you want quick access too. 

What I really like about this wash bag is that both of the zips to each of the pockets goes all the way down the sides of the wash bag making it easier to get your products out and find them. Each of the pockets has two zips on it which I really like as you can make them meet in the middle which looks cute. The inside of the pockets is a beautiful blue colour which I love because it makes the products stand out more, nothing worse than having a black lined make up bag and not being able to see what your looking for! 

You can see from the two images above just how much this wash bag actually fits. I have full size palettes, multiple concealers, too many lip colour options and powders. All of the make up products are kept in the back larger compartment and in the front pocket I keep a perfume atomiser with Zoellas fragrance in, a Roger and Gallet Hand Balm and finally I have a hand gel. There is more room in that front pocket so I am sure it will get filled with even more things soon! 

This Orla Kiely Wash Bag is priced at £28 and is available at John Lewis.

    Love the idea of the front pouch on a wash bag too - so convieniant especially for the smaller items that get get lost amongst the rest.
