Orla Kiely Sweet Pea Double Train Case

After a month of scouring the shelves of every Target I passed and stalking the website, I'm finally the happy owner of the Orla Kiely Sweet Pea Double Train Case ($19.99). This was the only bag in the collection that wasn't being sold online, so as soon as it was, I ordered it immediately. I first heard about Orla Kiely's cosmetic bag line from an organizedlikejen video (this video) and took it as a sign to upgrade from my flimsy makeup bag to one with a little more oomph. 

What really attracted me to this case above the other ones in the collection are the two compartments. I hated having to carry my brushes separately from my too small makeup bag, and this train case still keeps the separate, but I don't have to carry two different things. It also keeps the brushes safe. I use the zipper pocket in the top pocket to hold bobby pins and hair ties. The bottom little pocket by the seam is used to store enough foam wedges for the week. 

This bag is spacious, adorable, and overall perfect. It was completely worth the hunt. I'm no longer trying to fit just one more lipstick into my tiny makeup bag. There's plenty of room for my favorites as well as new products I'm giving a go.

What do you look for in a makeup bag? Are you happy with your current one?

  1. Ah I LOVE this! I so wish we had Target in the UK, they've had some great collaborations. I managed to get an Orla kiely scarf when she did a collaboration with Uniqlo a couple of years ago and I love it xx

  2. That case is adorable!! I will definitely be looking as I love all the compartments!! Would be perfect for dance makeup! :)

  3. So pretty, I currently use one from Paul & Joe when I travel, it's like a flilofax as inserts can be clipped out, plus there's a place for brushes, I love it :)
