Set of 2 Quilted Cosmetic Cases by Lori Greiner
Awful smell, cheaply made!
Really disappointed with the quality of these cosmetic cases. First of all it literally STINKS! I don't know what type of plastic it's made of but the smell is so dominant that I actually get headaches when I open it to use my make-up. I sprayed perfume into the compartments which by the way are very small. The pockets fill up with just one of my Laura Geller pressed powders and one bare minerals concealer.
As another customer mentioned the velcro scratches your hands when getting your makeup in and out of these TINY pockets.
I totally lost my money here because to top it of my return slip was missing from my package so I didn't return it and I regret this purchase imensely :(
So Sad Didn't Work
I ordered this because I needed to bring it with me on a trip to Texas. I thought it would be perfect to bring my makeup, skincare products, toothpaste, tooth brush, etc., but, so sad it didn't work. These compartments are all the same size - small and so you just can't fit too much in them and especially items like makeup brushes, for example and tooth brushes. Anyway, I should have read the reviews better. This could be a great product because I think most women do need to carry all their personal care products in one place, this just needs some tweaking, in my opinion, for my needs.
I have only been using this bag for about 2 months and it is starting to get big rips in the flaps from turning it back and forth. Needs to be better made, higher quality. I would send it back but I guess im to late.
When I bought this I thought it was fabric on the outside because of the quilted pattern. However, It is made of some sort of plastic. The velcro openings to the pockets are somewhat scratchy to your skin when you reach your hand in a pocket to get something out. I do like that it has many pockets, I have not used mine yet but I'm anxious to try.
I'm so sad..
I was so looking forward to using this as I have lots of lip glosses & use almost all the Bare Minerals products and thought what a wonderful way to get my makeup organized finally. But, the bag is not good quality. You may be able to get your fist into the pockets as shown in the demonstration but, good luck in closing it. The plastic seems to be a very low quality and I would be afraid if I had something oversized it would rip like I have see in some of the other reviews. As for the small one, the pockets are much smaller than what they looked like on the show. Where this idea is amazing, the product just needs to be better quality. I would even be willing to pay a little more if the quality were better & it's going to last me for years. But this is going to have to go back. Love, Love, Love Lori on Shark Tank as she has some awesome ideas. Keep up the good work!
not as expected
I was so looking forward to getting this cosmetic case so i could finally organize my makeup. I was so disappointed .The workmanship was very poor and the case did not appear as large as it was in the presentation. The smaller one would be ok just for a few items or used as a jewerlry holder.Sent it back. Wish it would of worked.
love the idea not happy with the quality
I ordered these because I have other Lori Greiner products that I love. Unfortunately I'm not real happy with this product because the plastic used is not heavy enough to truly hold up. I travel a LOT and keep my basic needs in the biggest case so I don't have to pack and unpack what I need every time I go on a trip. By my 4th trip the plastic began to rip at the seams on the bigger pockets. I didn't have it stuffed because I was afraid this might happen (it didn't look like it was going to hold up). I love the idea and how well it organizes your makeup but am not at all happy with the quality of this product.
I use the large one every morning, love the large capacity! Have not used the purse sized one yet, but will as I carry a large bag. I have the leopard and love that it can be wiped down. The only thing I would change would be the velcro, or just make the strips smaller. Even better to use zippers and gusset the sections. This saves me time in the morning as I don't have to dig in a drawer, sooooo organized!
Seems practical, could be made better
I ordered these to take with me on my upcoming cruise. They seem very practical, but I can already tell, the plastic is very cheap. Im hoping it does not rip. I will revisit after my cruise and update my thoughts on how well it holds up to usage.
Just OK, Could be great
I've been looking for the perfect makeup bag for a while now. I wanted something that would separate and organize my different tubes and compacts and still keep everything visible to me. There's nothing worse than a bottomless makeup bag with no compartments. When I saw this, I figured it would be the perfect solution. In many ways, it's the perfect makeup bag. It fits all my everyday essentials and I'm able to keep everything organized and visible-check, check, check!
BUT, the inner materials do seem cheap and poorly made. I worry that after a few weeks of use, it may begin to fall apart. The clear plastic is not thick, nice plastic, but something I have seen on items in the dollar store. It's thin and crinkly. Also, if I were to fill all the pockets to capacity, the bag itself would never zip closed. It would be nice if the depth of the bag could accommodate everything I could fit into it.
The small bag, while cute, is almost useless. It's too big and clunky to carry in a purse, yet to small to hold much at all. I've decided to store all my perfume and makeup samples inside it for now. It may make a good bag for a couple bottles of nail polish, a travel remover and some cotton balls when I go away. It could also make a good first aid kit or hair accessory organizer, but as for makeup, it doesn't hold enough to be utilized that way.
All in all, it's an ok item. I will keep it and use it for my makeup. If the problems were fixed, I would give it five stars without blinking. Also, if well made, a bigger version would be nice to have, as this one cannot hold larger palettes or big tubes. Bottom line, the idea behind this is brilliant, but it's poorly executed.
Cheap, waste of money
This is so cheaply made with cheap stiff clear plastic on the inside dividers. I am very disappointed in this. I would be ashamed to put my name on this. Now I have to PAY postage to return it! Most of Lori's items seem to be cheaply made.
Leopard looks cheap
The leopard set looks really cheap. If you buy it.... the black or pink might be
a better choice. Not sure I'm keeping them.
