Caro London Beauty Bags

By Mag Teo
One of the pleasures of owning beauty products is the availability of cases in which to store them. Choosing which one is sometimes a conundrum, given the number of storage choices we are faced with, but if you're partial to feminine frills and quirky fashion prints, Caro London beauty bags are a good bet!

All hand-crafted and individually-quilted in the United Kingdom, these 100% cotton printed cambric cases come in different sizes to suit your needs. Taffeta piping and frills, together with beaded zip pulls, add a delicate touch to the bags. The practical is not overlooked in favour of aesthetics, though – these washable bags all have a waterproof polyester lining to prevent leakage, in the event of product spillage.

Size: L25 x H16 x W13cm

A convenient handle on the lid aids portability, while zips on both ends are perfect for ease of opening. A reinforced base also allows you to hold weightier items. In addition, these bags have four elasticised internal pockets – two on each length of the case. I particularly like the fact that the pockets are expandable, thanks to the elastic.

Caro London Overnight Washbags (S$42)
Size: L22 x H14 x W11cm

Ideal for overnight travel, these soft yet structured bags are perfect for holding toiletry items and makeup. I like that they don't have a floppy base, which means they can stand up sturdily on tub/shower sides or bathroom vanities for easy access to bath and body products. An outer pocket with a magnetic clasp also helps you to reach essential makeup items quickly, while you are on the go.

Size: L19 x H9 x W6.5cm

These practical cases not only fit easily into carry-alls, their roomy interior holds a fair amount of beauty products, despite their seemingly compact size. For the beauty maven who travels light, they can fit a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, hairbrush and the like.

Caro London Shell Bags (S$26)
Size: L17 x H13 x W8cm

As suggested by their name, the feminine curves of these cute bags are reminiscent of mollusc shells. Like oysters, they comfortably house beauty gems. Their broadened base carries a lot - lipsticks, lip balms and other daily makeup fit snugly in these cases, not to mention keys, coins and mobiles.
