Now I know what a lot of you are thinking – does this girl really need any more make up bags?! – but can you really blame me? I mean just look at this beautiful bit of beauty brilliance.

Some of you may remember the slight obsession that I had with the similar Paul & Joe Floral Make Up Baga much small – yet equally as wonderful – filofax-style make up organiser that I picked up a few months ago. Since finally laying my mitts on it after a rather extensive search, it’s seen an unbelievable amount of use, my one and only issue with it being its slightly small size. ‘If only they had a bigger version that I could use on longer trips away,’ I thought to myself.

Enter the Laura Mercier Custom Artist Portfolio AKA the make up bag of dreams, first spotted in one of Fleur de Force‘s videos a wee while back. Just short of being A4 sized, this make up portfolio comes complete with four magnetised pouches – two medium, one small, one large – which pop in and out of the case quickly and easily, making them incredibly accessible and simple to access. In addition, the portfolio houses a removable middle sleeve to house your make up brushes and a palette or two in the back. In other words, pretty much all the storage you could need to house every possible beauty bit necessary during a week away.

The only drawback to this piece of beauty genius is that it is quite difficult to get hold of. I managed to track mine down on Amazon – the seller has now sadly sold out – but there are also a few available on eBay and, if you are quite as hefty a packer as I, try out the mini version of the portfolio which is currently on sale at House of Fraser and includes a beautiful mini palette and lipgloss.

Needless to say this beauty bag has well and truly fulfilled all of my organisational dreams…

    now you have this, would you ever sell your paul and joe one? i need it in my life and after stalking selfridges i’ve had no luck! i’d pay brand new price! (worth a try)

    1. I’m so sorry but I still use my Paul and Joe one all the time for quicker trips as it’s a bit smaller.

      If you’re desperate for that sort of make up bag though (I know I was!!) try the petite version of the Laura Mercier or Trish McElvoy does a similar one too! Xxx
