Review: MAC Softsac Carry All
Ok so I totally forgot that I'd been meaning to do a review of MAC's Softsac Carry All traincase that I got, so here it comes. I got this about a month ago, when CreamTeam was released. I had actually been eyeing it for a few weeks and had heard great reviews on it. However, I didn't feel like I had $55 to blow, but then I got a $20 Nordstrom Note gift certificate, so that made it $35, which is a steal. And now that I own it, I have to say this is WELL WORTH even $55. I mean, considering that the brush roll is $45, an extra 10 bucks for a whole case is sweet! Or even the Hello Kitty vanity case is $55 and so much smaller.
ANYWAYS, back to the amazingness that is this Softsac Carry All. The thing that most stands out to me is all the storage space in here that is sized exactly for MAC products. Here it is open:
It can hold so much stuff- there are about 4 or 5 lipstick pockets, about 4 powder/msf/bronzer/etc pockets, a zipper pocket for whatever you want, 2 large pockets one on either side, and tons of room to pile stuff in in the main character. There's also a really nice mirror (mine still has the plastic covering).
K so here's one side, with the lipstick pockets and one large pocket:
The other side in which I put a couple quads:
ANDDDDD, what's more, I can fit my ENTIRE brush roll in, and zip the lid without any bulging or overstuffing! My brush roll is really dirty, but you get the idea:
There's also a really nice adjustable strap so you can carry it wherever. And it's the same fabric as the brush roll- which is nice b/c they match, but can also be not so nice b/c that fabric collects dirt easily- but anyways, I LOVE this case!
