Review: It has EARS!

earsbagweb

Ok, so I know I have tumblr-ed and tweeted about this bag already, but come on! Look how adorable the thing is!! I just had to do a proper post about it.

I grabbed this from a little shop in Lincoln called Ruby Red Boutique which is up The Strait if you fancy a bit of a hill climb. The shop was really lovely, the staff friendly, and it had some nice clothing items and gifty bits. Definitely worth a look if you are in the area. 

I spotted the bag as soon as I stepped into the back room on a table full of purses, and literally grabbed it to give it a squeeze, it was just so darn cute and very me. 
It is made by Cheeky Budha, a brand I had never heard of before but a quick Google has shown it is stocked alongside higher end brands. The bag cost £10 which at first I thought was a little much considering I already have lots of makeup bags, it wasn't something I actually needed. I think it is actually supposed to be a purse (it would be a really big one though, with very little organisation) so it doesn't have a wipeable lining, but for something which is a bit out of the ordinary I didn't mind spending a bit extra. 

Once I realised exactly how much stuff would fit in this thing though I really thought I had got a bargain. Tardis is most definitely the word. Currently inside it I have a blusher, nail polish, a mascara, my Garnier eye roll on, two concealers, lipstick and lipgloss, a paint pot, an individual eye shadow, two single eye shadows I am planning on reviewing (both in pot like containers) my MSF natural, kabuki and eyelash curlers. AND THERE IS STILL ROOM!
One of the main reasons I don't carry makeup around with me, even if I think I will need to touch up during the day, is because it is such a bother trying to get everything I need to carry to fit into a bag, and usually I have to slot them all in perfectly to get the thing to shut. This just happily zips closed. Perfect!

I have a feeling this little guy will get a lot of use.
