Clear Cosmetic Bags: Practical And Stylish In Equal Measures

By Tamara Corin | 25th September 2023

Do you spend ages rummaging around in your toiletry and makeup bag in desperate search for a specific product, only to end up spilling out the whole contents in frustration? Well, the short answer is to invest in a clear cosmetic bag so you can clearly see the contents – a gamechanger for whether you’re at home or on-the-go, storing and transporting your beauty essentials has never been easier (or chicer!).

Simple, classic and 100% PEV (free from PVC) this vegan leather-trimmed cosmetic bag is great if you’re a minimalist. Fitting approximately 4 travel-sized products with perhaps a little bit of room to squeeze in a mascara and lipgloss too.
If you’re after a cosmetic bag to throw in all your products before a gym session, this medium-sized transparent bag will house all your bits and bobs. With vegan leather trim, this lightweight design helps keep your cosmetics neat, clean, and visible. And we’re loving the chic bronze colourway.
This wipe-clean clear PVC makeup bag has double-ended zips for easy access and slightly larger than your average pencil case, making it a perfect choice for storing and transporting makeup and brushes (rather than larger toiletries).
If you can’t leave home without half the contents of your bathroom, this clear cosmetics bag will allow you to shlepp all your beloved products with you, whether you’re going to the gym, catching a plane, or travelling to the office. Featuring faux leather accents and fully wipeable PVC panels with ample space for even a beauty junkie and lots of pretty shades to choose from.
For the ultimate in-flight sophistication, this chic leather trimmed cosmetic bag may even help you get an upgrade. With two compartments (very handy indeed), leather trims with a blank nameplate on each side, so you can emboss a name, label, or message, plus designer branding. You’ll look out of place anywhere but in first class. We’re obsessing over the Clear Blue shade.
Perfectly sized for your daily go-to’s, this mock-croc bag with patent trimmings (plus a signature gold VIEVE badge) won’t hide your must-haves in any hard-to-reach, dark corners. Easily visible and grabbable and great for touch-ups on the go. Make sure to pack this mini Vieve best-seller in your bag.
This affordable buy has two-tiers making it extra spacious and gives you no excuse not to be organised. With a handle at the top and two large compartments, plus a two-way zip running all around, it’s a storage solution that won’t break the bank. At this price, it’s hard to find fault.
If you’re more of a brush than a fingertip kinda gal, this brush set will ensure you’re super organised when it comes to your makeup application. Plus, it can double up as a cosmetics bag once the brushes need replacing, so you get your full money’s worth.
