I Have the Beauty Bag Blues

Posted 12/13/10 at 02:40PM by Rebekah George

Lately I've been feeling blue, Tiffany blue that is. It all started when I first laid eyes on the venerable jewelry store's newest leather collection of totes and cosmetic bags designed by Richard Lambertson and John Truex (of Lambertson Truex). You see, I have this thing with my cosmetics bag -- I need to have a really nice-looking one. Why? Well, I'm constantly pulling it out, in all sorts of places -- like chi chi restaurants. So, I like something that is pulled-together, stylish and actually holds lots of loot.

Tiffany's Lambertson Truex bag meets all the criteria. It holds enough makeup and skin care products to get me through a major trip and the case -- in Tiffany's signature blue, of course, is beautiful enough for me to carry as a clutch. At $175, it's definitely an investment, but it's very well made and is definitely a classic -- that's how I'm justifying the expense anyway.

But, before you write me off for professing my love for a splurge-worthy item like this (it can be annoying, I know), let me tell you that I also found a wallet-friendly option. The BCBGGeneration Gigi Cosmetic Case in Emerald, $38 is similar in size, not exactly Tiffany blue, but still a fun hue (it comes in bright purple and coral too), and though you won't be able to have breakfast at Tiffany's while purchasing it, you will feel Holly Golightly chic carrying it.

So whatever your budget this holiday season -- this is a great gift to give (or get) to the beauty-obsessed woman on your list.

    I agree with the other members who have commented that both of them are expensive. I don't bust my cosmetics case out at the table--I bring it into the ladies room. It's good to have a chic, clean, makeup bag, but it doesn't have to be designer! Target does make plenty of cute ones--and you can get adorable ones as a gift with purchase too. I have dozens just laying around.

    Love the color, but as previously mentioned, it really does not justify the price. It is way to expensive.

    I am loving the color but that does not justify the price tag
