Let’s face it, behind every great man is a great woman and the same rings true for makeup, that is, behind every great makeup collection is a great makeup case.
So whether at home or on the go, having a reliable makeup case is just as important (if not more important) then having reliable makeup – I mean, the last thing you want is to open up your makeup case mid-day only to find out your Becca Cosmetics champagne pop has cracked all over your Nars Ita brush… not a pretty picture – I know! As such, having a dependable makeup case is a fundamental ingredient to any [perfect] makeup recipe.
So if you love your makeup then you’re going to love this! The Dollup Case by makeup artist Nikki Hynek is truly a staple constituent in any makeup lover’s collection, whether just an enthusiast or a pro – this case is an absolute essential! Not only is it super sturdy meaning your makeup is sure to stay in one piece, but the case itself is a masterpiece; and come on, who isn’t a sucker for chic packaging?! Conveniently located under an interior drop-down vanity mirror, this portable vanity has a magnetic base palette on one side designed to house your favorite powder, blush and shadow pans. And on the other side are elastic holding bands ready to secure your favorite brushes, glosses and liners in place. Measuring at around 7.5” x 4.5” x 1.5”, it’s not too big or too small – in my opinion, if it can fit my daily essentials than I’m sold. And it can!
The structured frame offers maximum protection unlike other makeup cases that are simply made from a soft fabric-like material. So you can already tell at first glance that this case is not only built to last but will make your makeup last too. It really looks like a box clutch, which to me is a brilliant feature because there is nothing more chic and classy than the timeless box clutch. So all in all, it’s pretty evident that this case was clearly built with durability and strength in mind but the fact that it just looks so damn sexy is a massive plus! The exterior is made from premium synthetic leather and the interior lined with 100% polyurethane. And the most important component – the pièce de résistance – is the gold toned hardware. Details are everything, and nothing speaks louder than gold!
All in all, The Dollup Case is beautiful, elegant, convenient and reliable. It is a definite staple necessity in every makeup lover’s kit! I trust this case to protect my makeup while on the go and I always love showing it off because, what can I say, it’s just so glam!
