For all of the gift with purchase cosmetic cases that we have accumulated over the years, none of them really fit the bill when it comes to carrying skincare and makeup essentials for overnight trips or emergency mid-day makeup overhauls. A makeup bag needs to be compact enough to fit into an overnight bag, satchel, gym bag or to stash away in my desk drawer, yet still roomy enough to hold the essentials including a small brush or comb, an eyelash curler, a few vital palettes, dry shampoo, some hand lotion as well as the makeup essentials. And it needs to be sturdy. And durable. And preferably attractive without drawing excess attention if I need to haul to the ladies room for an emergency quick-fix. These needs are all met in the OLPR Leather Goods Co. Leather Dopp Kit. Dopp Kits are not just for the boys, they are darn useful for an on-the-go lady to hold all your go-to glam stuff in one convenient case.
ABOUT THE OLPR Leather Goods Co. Brown Leather Dopp Kit
A standout feature of the OLPR Leather Goods Co. Brown Leather Dopp Kit is the leather itself, a soft, supple leather with a rich grain that will come to patina to a nice finish without signs of damaged wear.
The leather has a suede inner feel to the inside of the case.
Each OLPR Leather Goods Co. Brown Leather Dopp Kit is made to order, and it shows. The leather is bound well so that it does not pull or wear unevenly, the stitching is impeccable.
EASE OF USE
The pull tab is generous and easy to maneuver.
The metal elements and zipper are of sturdy construction and an attractive oversize look that adds to the aesthetic.
The size is generous, at 7.5″ x 3.5″ x 3.5″, and has some give to fold in the traditional rectangle shape or shape taller to hold larger items.
HOW MUCH CAN IT HOLD?
For the purposes of scale, when folded up, the case can hold a 2.8 ounce cream pump bottle of lotion or cream(the white bottle to the left), a hairspray styling product mini (the orange pump to the right), an full size makeup up palette such as Urban Decay Naked Palette square (seen peeking out of the bottom), several smaller bottles and tubes of makeup, an eyelash curler, lipstick, gloss, and hand cream (Bliss blue tube) with room to spare. When used in the traditional square shape, it can hold several more compact shorter items. I like the ability to carry my pricer eyelash curlers such as Shiseido, Shu Uemura, Surratt or Kevyn Aucoin curlers (seen between the white bottle and blue tube) without crushing their delicate shape as can happen in some makeup bags.
This bag also fits the traditional Dopp bag uses of overnight travel products such as mini travel size shampoo and conditioner, full-size soap, deodorant, toothpaste, razors, and brushes.
PERSONALIZATION: The OLPR Leather Goods Co. Leather Dopp Kit can be personalized for free with up to five letters, ideal for a monogram, initials or a name or nickname. How about giving it as a groomsmen or bridesmaids gift for a destination wedding, or monogram it with “BRIDE”, “GROOM”, “DAD”, “MOM” or GRAD?
Unlike the endless GWP makeup bags we accumulate over time, this bag is an investment that will last for years and wear beautifully. A highly attractive leather Dopp kit of excellent construction and materials that is worthy of carrying the makeup collection of a beauty connoisseur and keeping it safe and secure, ideal for travel, the gym, for an overnight bag, or to keep all the essentials like dry shampoo, makeup, spare toothbrush and paste and other essentials in your desk. If you carry expensive skin care products with you when you travel, this Dopp bag can keep them safe and secure. Makes for a lovely gift!
