Machine-Washable Makeup Travel Bag: The Last One You’ll Ever Need

Machine-Washable Makeup Travel Bag: The Last One You’ll Ever Need

Kusshi Makeup Travel Bag

When it comes to travel, I’m always looking for convenient accessories/gear to make my life easier. I also travel on mostly budget airlines so I need to make sure everything is small and compact.

For all you ladies out there, packing a little bit of makeup is key and most of you wouldn’t leave home without it. I remember the one time my dad saw me without makeup and told me I looked “sick”. Yaaaaa, like I said, I would never leave home without it! Thanks a lot dad! Anywayz…

As a travel blogger, we are often offered free travel gear/accessories. However, I’m extremely picky and tell the company I can try it out and IF I love it I would be happy to provide a review. If you notice, I don’t have any reviews of travel gear on my blog as of yet. Not one. Like I said, I’m extremely picky and I would only promote something I realllllly love.

Well, I found something I am completely obsessed with: the Kusshi Makeup travel bags. Here are 4 reasons why (trust me, they are all you need).

1. They’re Washable. I repeat, they’re WASHABLE!

Where have you been all my life? Seriously. I am always spilling makeup inside my bag and it becomes super messy. When I’ve had enough, I eventually throw it away and start with a new one. Repeating that cycle is getting old (and expensive).

The makeup bag folds down if its not full so you can pack it down into a tiny carry-on suitcase!

With the Kusshi makeup travel bags, you just toss them in your washer on low temperature and voila! You have a shiny new makeup bag! No need to scrub yourself and no need to buy a new one! It also retains its shape after the wash (I’ve already washed mine a few times and it held up perfectly). Just make sure you line dry and DO NOT use the dryer.

Note: for the leather bags, there is an insert that you unzip to wash, you DO NOT put the leather bags in the washer or it will get ruined 100%. (See photo below where the red part of the bag is the part that unzips and you put into the washer. It’s basically the inside liner).

2. Zips Down on Both Sides So You Can See All Your Sh*t!


With zips on both side, you can zip them down and it basically flattens down and opens up so you can EASILY see and access all your makeup. It’s so nice to not have to stick your hand in a tiny makeup bag and have to shuffle around trying to find everything. I might love this feature even more than the fact that it’s washable! 

3. Separate Brush Holder Case

It’s really nice to have the brushes separate from all your other makeup to keep them clean and also to protect the bristles.

The really cool part is that you can “unsnap” your brush pouch and place it into the little clutch or snap it into your makeup bag if you want everything all in the same place. I love having options! There is also a little pouch where you can keep your jewelry.

4. A Bonus Cute Little Clutch!

The brush holder also double as a stylish little clutch for that random night out on the town. Not having to pack another purse into a tiny suitcase will save some stress for sure.

I’m using the red leather clutch above in Croatia and the blue fabric clutch below in Morocco.

Bottle Protectors

Kusshi now offers neoprene zip-up covers to protect your bottles during travel! These bottle protectors are so useful and now I don’t have to worry about my tiny glass bottles breaking or my hair serum spilling all over everything else (which has happened a few times before). I took these on my last few trips and had no accidents! I absolutely love them and think they are an essential item I will always take with me on all my trips.

Choices, choices: Sizes and Leather vs Fabric

Kusshi makeup travel bags come in leather or fabric in a few different colors. I originally chose to go with the fabrics on both since I knew they would compress down better and weight a few ounces less! The crazy light packer in me haha. 🙂

I’ve had the fabric ones for a few years now and I can honestly say I absolutely love them! When I received the Signature makeup bag, I was initially a little worried because it was bigger than my regular travel makeup bag. But then I noticed you can fold it down if it’s not full and fit it into little spaces in your suitcase, which worked out perfectly.

The leather Everyday bag and the leather Clutch Cover

I have since added a few of the leather makeup bags to my collection and I love them even more! The quality is so nice and I know they will last even longer than the fabric ones.

I would highly recommend these makeup travel bags for the avid traveler, but also for every day use! Anything that makes your life easier is a winner in my book!

Makeup Bag Sizes

Everyday (5” h x 7 ½” w x 3 ¼” d): great for a short trip and if you don’t wear tons of makeup.

Signature (6” h x 11 ½” w x 5” d): the perfect size to store all your makeup while you travel or on a daily basis. 

Vacationer (7” h x 13” w x 5 ¾” d): the biggest makeup bag that’s great if you want to bring a lot of makeup as well as beauty products all in one bag.

Quality vs Price

I want to make it clear that these travel makeup bags are considered “high-end” makeup bags. But you are paying for the top-notch quality which is super durable and will last you through years of wear and tear. I am not big on spending much money on material things, but I am a firm believer in splurging on “staple items” you will be using everyday and that will need to last longer than a few months/years. So yes, I think these makeup bags are an awesome investment and I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone.

  1. Thank you for sharing this! I’m new to the long-term travel life and already wish I had this. Currently carrying one makeup bag with brushes and everything together; it’s a mess already. This would be perfect. Especially with the added bonus of being extra light and a clutch. Yes please! 🙂

    • Haha yeah, carrying it all together can become a total mess! These bags are awesome and the fact that they can be tossed into the washer without me having to do anything had me sold! 🙂
