Makeup Junkie Bag For Family Travel

Don’t let the name fool you…Makeup Junkie bags can hold far more than just make-up.

Personally, I don’t travel with a lot of make-up, but I do have a collection of cosmetic and toiletry items I’ve been wanting to consolidate into one easy-to-keep-clean location when I fly carry-on only.

I tested out the Mommy Junkie Bag, which has a waterproof waxed liner, and while I don’t have babies in diapers anymore, I’m finding it’s perfect for stashing make-up, other toiletries, and first-aid supplies for the whole family.

If you do travel with a baby or toddler, the Mommy Junkie Bag will fit wipes, diapers, creams, a few clothing items, and even shoes and snacks.

When I travel, I find it fits my make-up, non 3-1-1 toiletry items, hair accessories, hair brush, and the small first aid kit that I always travel with (and previously carried separately).

I love that the bags feature very cute and original patterns (mine is a pretty bird pattern), and each has a pretty tassel that makes zipping the bag open and closed a breeze.

On the Makeup Junkie website, you can customize your tassel color, too. The inner waxed liner is really easy to wipe clean, just in case you have a leakage in the bag.

TheĀ  Mommy Junkie bag is 12 inches long and about eight inches across, so it’s oversized for a make up bag. It folds down completely flat, so it won’t take up extra room in your carry on or tote, either.

At home, it could even double as a bag for your car, carrying wipes, bandaids, and the like. It’s overall a nice all-purpose bag that can grow with your family, from babyhood on up.

If you don’t want the Mommy bag, there’s also a luxury line and a signature line to choose from, as well as a man bag line. Bags are around $35 each…the Mommy bag is $34, and there are several patterns to choose from.

Pick up a bag on the website, or check on Amazon, too!
