The Hold Me Bag is a makeup bag for home and travel use that is handmade in the USA and available in 3 sizes. What makes this bag different is it’s open at a glance design in an expandable zippered section with incorporated covered brush storage. It is styled after a vintage schoolgirl’s book bag. It closes via a wrap around tie that makes it very flexible for how empty/full you pack the bag.
I tested the original Hold Me Bag ($85 US) which is the biggest of the three available sizes because I tend to over pack when travelling. It measures 10″H x 7″W x 2.5″D closed; extends to 22″ fully opened. There is an expandable center section, the “Heart” of the bag that is fully zippered. There is a removable and reversible liner that you can put on the base of the large section or use it to separate larger makeup palettes on the bottom from smaller items on top. There is an open pocket on the inside of the lid for light weight storage for one large palette or smaller items. The covered brush section has 12 sleeves to hold single/multiple brushes up to 9″ long. You can also put liners etc. in this are. Bag exterior is crafted of vegan suede, a sleek soft black fabric with superior cleaning and shape retention. Fun, wipe-clean cotton prints highlight interiors.
I love this bag. It is what I have always needed. Usually when travelling I pack a separate brush roll. Even for weekends away. Maybe that’s a little crazy but when I’m going away I don’t want to be without all my favourite brushes. Now I can pack them in my one travel bag. The large area holds SO MUCH STUFF. The pic I’ve shown (sorry its a little messy but I didn’t plan on taking the picture but then said hey it’s packed what the heck) is what I packed just for a weekend away. It includes a lot of makeup, skincare, and medical items and I still had extra room! I just can’t believe how much I can pack in this bag yet it doesn’t seem overly big and bulky. Plus it is so easy to see and access all the stuff in the Hold Me Bag as opposed to some taller/deeper styled large cosmetics bags.
If you don’t need quite this much room there is also a Hold Me Middle Sister Bag ($75 US) which is the mid-sized Hold Me Bag – measures 9″H x 6″W x 2.5″D closed; extends to 20″ fully opened. As well as the Hold Me Baby Bag ($60 US) Smallest, purse-size Hold Me Bag. Measures 7″H x 5″W x 2.5″D closed; extends to 16.5″ fully opened.
The Hold Me Bags are available in a huge variety of prints. I was so impressed with the selection. The polka dot one shown here is called Minnie M. You are sure to find a design that speaks to your tastes and personality. You can find the bags on their website HoldMeCompany.com as well as at Naimie’s and Amazon.com.
