I’ve wanted this makeup portfolio for so long that when it finally hit the UK I jumped like cat that got water gunned.........ok I’m exaggerating.
Anyway, I decided to get the portfolio for a couple of reasons :
* I deserved it :)
* Its unique compared to other travel makeup cases.
* It’s an excellent/stylish way to travel with my makeup ( I move around alot so its PURRFECT).
* Its a beautiful dark brown textured material that I can’t really describe.
The portfolio comes with 4 zippered mesh bags, 2 Medium bags , 1 large bag and 1 small slim bag. The mesh bags are magnetic and can be removed or reorganised as you please. It has a removable brush/pocket holder that fits in between both sides of the portfolio. An empty refillable 6-well and 3-well palette which is very beautiful but will not be getting filled anytime soon because I think their eyeshadows/lipsticks are a tad pricey + I don’t need any makeup at the moment.
The portfolio is actually bigger than it looks in pictures but not bulky + it’s made of a hard shell that prevents your makeup from getting crushed while you travel. Surprisingly it fits more makeup than I anticipated, if I pack exactly all the makeup I need to travel, I will be able to neatly pack travel size skincare products.

Having all my makeup neatly packed in one case is a dream because is the past I had two separate awkward shaped bags for travelling with makeup. As for mesh bags, only one side is meshed and the other side is not.
I filled up the portfolio to give you an idea of what the case will look like with products in it. I really really love the case and even though I thought really hard before I bought ( almost returned) the £65 case that does not come with makeup, I still think it was a good investment. I’m a sucker for anything related to makeup/organisation. Both the interior and exterior of the portfolio is made of really good quality material, the exterior zip feels/looks like it will last a long time. FYI there is a smaller version of the Portfolio :) .
