Always Have Your Fave Cosmetics Close by with Tartan + Twine - #Review #Giveaway #HolidayGiftGuide

Do you toss your favorite or must have cosmetics into your handbag?  I know I do and to be honest, I can't remember what color the lining was originally.  It looks like a clown threw up inside my bag, every color of the rainbow all mixed together!  After hours of cleaning my handbag, inside and out, I was determined to keep it that way.  Luckily, I found Tartan & Twine and their trendy organizers were just what I needed to keep my cosmetics all in one place.

What is Tartan + Twine?
According to their website, "A modern twist to a classic.  Tartan + Twine is a collection of beauty and travel storage solutions designed for fashionable women that love to be organized.  Made of classic, yet innovative prints and patterns woven into shapes of subtle and smart femininity, each piece is designed to hold everything and anything, beautifully."
From chic clutches, trendy train cases and unique organizers to pretty pencil cases, wonderful weekenders and more, Tartan + Twine has something for everyone. 

Gift Ideas from Tartan + Twine
After browsing their site I fell in love with almost everything they carry.  They have many different styles and sizes to choose from so you're sure to find the perfect gift for yourself or someone special.  Here are just a few of my favorites:

Tawney Steppe Weekender - $30
I absolutely love cheetah print so this weekender caught my eye right away.  It features two full-zip compartments, one clear and one mesh which is perfect for travel bottles, jars, tubes, compacts, etc.  It also features a thin, double-sided zip flap pocket that's great for makeup brushes, pencils and other smaller items and it's convenient handle makes it easy to just pack up and be on your way.  Made from textured cheetah nylon and is 12.5" x 3.5" x 8".
Cosmic Divide Medium Clutch - $24

I love this design and the metallic colors on the black background!  The Tartan + Twine Beauty Clutch is a simple yet roomy beauty organizer.  It's a single zip bag that features a useful mesh divider that separates the inside into two sections.  Perfect for travelling, place toiletries on one side and makeup on the other.  Best of all, it can also double as a fun, fashionable clutch.  Made of PU with metallic foil details and is 9.5" x 3.75" x 5.75".
Ellsworth Wane Valet - $25
This colorful organizer is ideal for those that like to have all of their beauty essentials accessible and completely off their counter tops.  It features one clear zip pocket, two thin, mesh slip pockets, one deep, mesh pocket and two thin, clear zip pockets.  Once you fill it up you can use the built in hook to hang it from your towel rack or carry it with you for the ultimate makeup organizer on-the-go.  When you're done simply fold it up and close it using the elastic bands.  Made of microtwill with a PU trim and is 11" x 2" x 6.75".

My Review

I received a beautiful Gwynn Check Small Organizer.  I love the green and metallic gold colors and it's compact enough to fit in  most handbags but roomy enough to fit my essential cosmetics.  It has a single zipper and a single interior slip pocket.  It's 5.5" x 2.75" x 4" and is made of cavlar textured PU.  While I made sure to place some of my makeup sticking out of the bag, I was able to fit my eyeshadows, eyeliners, lipstick, lip gloss, compact, a few brushes and my travel perfume in this small organizer and I no longer have to worry about makeup spilling into my handbag.  I also love that it's versatile.  If I want a small bag to carry just a few essentials, I can simply take out my makeup and put in my keys, money, ID and anything else I need and use this instead of lugging a large handbag around with me.  Best of all, this adorable organizer is only $12!  I highly recommend Tartan + Twine organizers to anyone looking for the perfect gift for the fashionista in their lives or someone trying to keep their cosmetics or other small items a little more organized.

  1. I love the Caitlin Grove Double Zip Train Case and Tawney Steppe Weekender :) Thank you for the chance to win Happy Holidays!

  2. Definitely the Tawney Steppe weekender. With a preteen blossoming fashionista in our house, we never have enough room for her supplies. They are literally everywhere. lol

  3. Blue mercury has swept nearly half the nation, opening stores in 20 states across the country. But according to Beck, like the best ideas, the industry juggernaut’s origins were nothing more than a simple aha moment he experienced while passing an independent beauty boutique on a stroll of his neighborhood click here….…...
