Buy enough makeup or skincare and chances are, you never ever have to buy a makeup bag/pouch. Hands up whoever agrees with me LOL! :D I don’t know how it is overseas, but here, GWP (Gifts with Purchase) are common and a common GWP is a fancy makeup pouch. Heaven knows, I’ve collected, given away and used so many free makeup pouches in my time. It came to the point that I’d actually decline a free makeup pouch because I have a cupboard full of them!
Yet quite recently, I bought one.
I blame my friend Xin, who texted me one evening with her dilemma as to whether to buy this adorable makeup pouch she discovered at Muji.
It’s quite unassuming isn’t it? So we texted back and forth, she sent me a bunch of photos and eventually the clincher came – “It’s on 30% discount” so I said “Ok, buy me one and let’s see what it does!” I’m suggestible that way :D
But there was a reason I wanted it, and when I took it home during the Chinese New Year break recently, I discovered just what a nifty little thing it is. Yes, emphasis on little, because it isn’t very big is it? As you see in the picture, it sits in the palm of my hand quite comfortably and it barely takes up any space, yet it’s like Mary Poppin’s bag in there – it fits a ton!
