One of my favorite products lately has been this gorgeous ruffled makeup bag from the debut Christian Siriano Makeup Collection for Victoria’s Secret Makeup. While the bag looks pretty online in the official product images, it is waaaay more amazing in person!
These exclusive product photos and details from Meilily will reveal a more unique side of the Christian Siriano ruffled makeup bag, one that could only be discovered in person (and here)…
Fantastic and creative-yet-subtle design elements come together in this imaginative little makeup bag. Measuring approximately 5.5×5.5 inches, the Christian Siriano Petite Ruffled Makeup Bag is actually not that “petite” and can be better described as a square clutch that would work as an evening bag.)
- Divine Turquoise Satin Interior! Imagine my surprise when I unzipped the Christian Siriano Petite Ruffled Makeup bag to discover that the interior is covered with a beautiful turquoise satin fabric. It is simply gorgeous! What a fantastic touch to an already interesting makeup bag.
- Creative zippers are hot! There is actually a very unique edge to the zipper design of this makeup bag that can’t be seen in official product photos. Here’s what’s special about this Christian Siriano makeup bag: There is essentially one zipper accent that goes around the makeup bag, once for practicality, then twice for creativity and interest, continuing around again over the first zipper! It’s hard to explain how unique this effect is, but check out the photos below!
Bet you couldn’t see that in the official product images!
Not only does the antiqued golden zipper contrast perfectly with the black ruffles and brown fabric trim of the bag, but this kind of zipper-as-decoration is so in right now! (Was it Versace that started this zipper trend?)
- Quality worksmanship… ah so refreshing! The black fabric of this bag is smooth on one side and thick and somewhat plush on the other, and it maintains the zig-zag edge of each ruffle without a fray in sight! The details are truly lovely!
So, after seeing this item up close in person, I highly recommend the Christian Siriano Petite Ruffled Makeup Bag as a really fantastic gift for any makeup-lover or fashionista in your life!
*I was lucky enough to receive this Christian Siriano makeup bag as a birthday present (from someone who read Meilily’s raves here), and love everything about it! Thanks for the gift, dear reader : )
