Has this ever happened to you? You have the perfect lipstick, liner or shadow somewhere, but your makeup drawer is so disorganized and overstuffed that you can’t locate that perfect shade? Need to carry your makeup when you travel, or for doing makeup for a big event like a wedding? Those makeup bags that come with GWP offers are often pretty but don’t hold makeup well when traveling. We recently tried the All The Things Professional Makeup Case and found it holds our makeup securely and has a spot for everything so we can locate just what we need when we need it.
- Four Large Adjustable Trays to custom fit palettes and brushes
- Deep divided bottom compartments with removable and adjustable dividers to fit even a hair dryer or curling iron
- Secure locking hinge top closures
- Easy to clean dust-proof acrylic sheeting
- High-grade aviation aluminum is lightweight but sturdy
- Custom over the shoulder harness strap with padding
ABOUT THE DESIGN
The 14-inch long design is big enough to hold multiple palettes, brushes, hair products and powders but it is not cumbersome to carry either by the handle or the shoulder strap. I have a Pro case from a known cosmetic brand that is larger but without the adjustable trays, it actually holds less than this All The Things Professional Makeup case does.
HOW MUCH IT HOLDS
The fold out two-tier top compartments come with multipleÂ and adjustable dividers, so you can create any kind of space you want by sliding a divider into any side crevices.
Here I placed the dividers to provide enough room to hold my Urban Decay Naked palettes (about two Naked palettes fit per tier) with a smaller compartment large enough to hold lipsticks or two Nars blush sized single palettes.
The tiers are also large enough to hold my brushes including foundation and blusher.
The bottom is a deep multi-section compartment where any of the larger padded dividers can be removed and repositioned to create a variety of spaces to hold hair dryers, hair styling products, curlers, curling irons, large brushes, bottles and larger containers that hold powder or product. If you prefer an entirely open bottom compartment, that is possible as well.
I put my unusual shaped palettes in the bottom section, it holds the IT Cosmetics Contour Palette, the Ulta NYX Birthday Eyeshadow Palette, The Urban Decay Naked Matte Palette, the UD Naked Basics amongst others.
In the other compartments, I keep hair products, a larger limited edition ByTerry Kabuki brush that I don’t want to be crushed by other brushes, and finally my larger creams and lotions including my trusty Creme de la Mer Concentrate and Lordsbury Retinol C+ Cream Moisturizer. I like that the compartment dividers have some extra padding to keep expensive and fragile products safely cushioned.
MY EXPERIENCE: PUTTING THE ALL THE THINGS PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP CASE TO THE TEST
The case is sturdy, it’s easier to transport than the old vanity style suitcases yet it holds my makeup more securely than just packing it in a suitcase. I’ve invested so much in my makeup, tools, and brushes, including limited edition palettes and brushes, as well as fragile bottles such as the Mac Prime and Prime, or perfumes that I prefer to keep my makeup with me as a carry-on or safely in the car with me while traveling, and it stows away nicely underfoot. If you prefer to carry your hair supplies in here, it is a safe way to transport high-end hair dryers and curling wands such as the T3, CHI or Dyson.
The handle is sturdy and secure even when I overpack the case with heavier items.
The key works without sticking and keeps the case secure. The padded shoulder strap is a nice addition as it reduces the strain on my shoulder and does not wrinkle clothes. The handle is sturdy. It is easy to clean any powder or spills off the surface of the case due to the special coating on the dividers and inner lining.
The All The Things Professional Makeup Case is a highly versatile and sturdy case for organizing makeup, brushes, hair products, powders, palettes and makeup within four pull our tiered compartments and the deep lower compartment that can be divided in any number of ways. Ideal for keeping makeup organized and secure while traveling or at home, the All The Things Professional Makeup Case is an excellent value that will securely and neatly hold your makeup collection for years to come, so you can find just the right shade when you need it!
