Maxwell Designs Cosmetic Bag #Review

I recently received a cosmetics bag from Maxwell Designs to review.  Maxwell Designs (aff link) creates beautiful, designer bags, wet bags, and diaper clutches.  I was really impressed when I received this bag: it was wrapped, tied professionally with ribbon, and had a thoughtful note from the designer on it.  I wasn't sure what fabric choice I would receive, but I was very excited to open the package and find it was a trendy, green and pink moped print. This adorable fabric is made from organic cotton. I immediately noticed that the bag was lined with a waterproof PUL layer that seemed very soft and pliable.  I liked that the zipper on the bag was high-quality and made of metal.

Maxwell Designs Cosmetics Bag:

  • Zipper closure ensures everything stays inside.
  • Wipe clean interior, or machine wash warm/cold, hang to dry or tumble dry low.
  • Pouch size approx: 10″ long x 5.5″ tall x 2.25″ wide
  • Organic, designer fabrics
  • Available for $18
I managed to fit quite a few items into the bag: an electric toothbrush carrying case, makeup, deodorant, and more. In fact, this is probably more makeup than I would bring on a weekend trip, but I was easily able to fit everything into the bag.  I really hate trying to over-stuff makeup bags when I'm packing.  I also love that this bag is waterproof and washable.  There were so many trips where shampoos and other liquids spilled into my cosmetics bag and leaked onto other items in my suitcase.  Now I can keep potential spills contained with this waterproof bag.
There are so many wonderful products available from Maxwell Designs, and there is something for everyone.  These cosmetic bags make great gifts! 
I was provided the above cosmetics bag for the purpose of this review.  I was under no obligation to provide a positive review, and this review reflects my honest opinions about this product. Maxwell Designs links are affiliate links


  1. I LOVE using wet bags for carrying bathroom goods on trips. They're fantastic. And Maxwell bags are even better.

  2. I've not thought of using small wet bags for my own items when traveling - I need to check out MD's bags, thanks!

  3. Wow! So cute! I need a new cosmetic bag too! Will definitely be checking these out!

  4. This is adorable! I love the vespa fabric, its a very unique print! I'd love to get one of their change pads, I love how they roll up and fasten :)
