For the person who can’t stand endlessly digging through their makeup bag in search of that one, tiny eye pencil, there’s this genius invention: the Lay-n-Go Cosmo. When you’re on the move, it transforms into a travel sack that keeps all your things contained, but when you reach your destination, it unfolds into a 20-inch mat so you can see everything all at once. There’s even a raised lip to avoid rolling, a zippered pocket for safe storage, and a built-in elastic strap that acts as a handy brush holder. Oh, and it’s machine-washable in case of spills.
This classic, no-frills makeup case from Tartan + Twine keeps things simple. Its boxy shape makes storage a breeze and the top handle makes it easy to tote around. Inside, you’ll find four nylon straps that’ll keep fragile glass bottles in place. (Hello, expensive skin-care products.) The Basics Black Train Case also features a zipper-lined pocket to store your brushes, liners, and other slim products.
Away’s The Hanging Toiletry Bag is great for those who want to keep all their beauty products in one place — yet neatly separated and organized. With three compartments, you can have all your makeup, skin-care, and hair-care products with you at all times. Not to mention, this bag is ready to be hung up in any bathroom you travel to.
Reminiscent of your favorite puffer coat, the Caraa Vanity Kit is made of plush waterproof nylon for fashionable protection from the elements. This beauty tote has nine divided compartments to carry your entire makeup stash (even full-size bottles), no matter where you’re headed. Use the removable shoulder strap to sling it across your body for hands-free carrying. Then, once you’re ready to get ready, its hanger-like hook allows you to hang it vertically from any door, handle, you name it.
Made of vegan leather, the Rose Inc Structured Beauty Clutch is so chic, we would even consider using it as an evening purse. This bag keeps its shape whether it’s open or closed, no matter how much you stuff it with your items.
Constructed from easy-to-clean neoprene, Dagne Dover’s multitasking Hunter Toiletry Bag might just be the most durable of the bunch, with room for essentials like a razor, a full-size fragrance bottle, or even your favorite hot tool. Plus, the high-tech, water-resistant fabric is both breathable and hand-washable, making it the perfect addition to your prone-to-clutter gym bag. In addition to an interior slip pocket with organization-friendly elastic loops, the self-cushioning kit also has two fully removable mesh pouches with zip closures, so everything will be right where you need it post-workout.
