My life is now complete! The Lay-n-Go® COSMO Plus Cosmetics Bag

Ok, this is no joke. I seriously feel like my life is complete now.

You know how sometimes you discover something new…it seems so simple, like why didn’t someone think of this a long time ago? And where have you been all my life??? Those are the thoughts that ran through my mind when I discovered the Lay-n-Go® COSMO Plus, the perfect travel cosmetics bag.

I travel a lot for my job and because I am a beauty blogger (as well as a self-admitted cosmetics hoarder) I take a TON of products with me. Then, in the morning at the hotel, I dump everything out onto a towel in the bathroom. I fight to make sure nothing rolls off into the sink as I go through my products one by one, using each item, then I throw everything back into my travel bag. Then next morning I go through my whole routine again. The Lay-n-Go has completely changed this goofy routine and made traveling a total pleasure!!

The Lay-n-Go is a cosmetics bag that lays flat, but it has a lip around the edge so nothing will roll off and into the sink. It holds an incredible amount of stuff as you can see. It has spaces for brushes as well as zippered storage for items you want separated – you can even put your jewelry in there. Laid flat, it keeps all of your items in a wonderfully safe on a clean area that is washable and can be wiped down. Then, you just pull the drawstring to close up the mat into a storage bag with handles! The storage bag is super durable and easy to carry and stow. The original Cosmo comes in three sizes:  13″($19.95), 20″ ($29.95), and 22″ ($34.95). Also offered is the Lay-n-Go® COSMO Plus which is 21″, which is the one I was sent to test.  Right now, there is a two for one special on the Cosmo Plus ($58.95), a great idea so you can purchase one for your mom for Mother’s Day and keep one for yourself!

I love how once I lay this out, everything is right there – I am not rummaging around in a deep bag for my blush or my mascara. I love how I don’t have to worry about my stuff rolling off my towel into the sink or worse, the toilet. I love how easy it is to have everything in one place and then with one motion, it’s all in a bag to be stowed away so easily and quickly! And if there is an accident like a blush breaking or a foundation spilling, everything is washable.

I am beyond excited about the Lay-n-Go® COSMO Plus. It’s truly a game changer. A life changer. You want this. You can find them online at  – Lisa

    I’ve seen these type of makeup bags before and I see the appeal of being able to see everything laid out. But I still wasn’t sold. Until this one! The fact that it has bands to hold your makeup brushes plus a zippered pocket addresses all the issues!

    Heck, I could’ve used this cool travel bag on my trip last week! Oh well, I’ll know about it for next time

    Have to admit when I looked at the picture of this bag I could not figure out why it had you so excited. BUT then the more I read about the bag the more I liked it. Going to order a few of these for upcoming birthdays.

    I have the older version and I love it, but I’d love to try this one – looks like it has new features!

  5. Cindy | 3rd May 18

    Does it take up much room in your suitcase?

  6. Miranda | Slashed Beauty | 3rd May 18

    omgg!! I used to love my Lay N Go but this new design looks SO much better with the features to keep some stuff in place!!!!

  7. The Jedi Wife | 4th May 18

    Ahhh! I need this in my life, especially since I’m doing a lot of travel now! I hate dealing with makeup when traveling, and that sucks to say as a beauty blogger!

  8. Chelsea | 4th May 18

    Omg this is genius!! I am forever fighting with my products rolling around the sink, knocking them off the sink, and occasionally breaking great eyeshadow palettes (the worst!) so this is perfect. So convenient for traveling!

  9. Esther | 4th May 18

    This is cool.

  10. 25 Sweetpeas | 4th May 18

    OK this is kind of brilliant!

  11. Katie Nystuen | 4th May 18

    I’ve seen something like this before and it looks so handy. I hardly wear makeup but when I do want to bring some along on a trip I can never find a makeup bag to hold it all…until now.

  12. Babi | 4th May 18

    This is a super cute idea! Totally perfect for my overloaded purse!

  13. Lola Seicento | 5th May 18

    What an ingenious design! I would love using this when I travel!

  14. beautyin | 5th May 18

    Cindy it really doesn’t take up much room at all. The material is soft so it conforms to any angle you need to squish it into while still protecting the goods inside. I am completely sold on it — I can’t gush enough about it!

  15. Yvette Price | 5th May 18

    This is so great for travel, I really like that you have holders in the center so you don’t have everything loose.

  16. Polished Hippy | 6th May 18

    What a cool idea! I am always frustrated by digging through my travel bags for things.

  17. Nina | 7th May 18

    What a great idea!! This would be perfect for travel!! I hate the time it takes to unpack and lay everything out, this would be amazing to have!

  18. Julie Waldron | 8th May 18

    I love this! Whenever I travel, I’m always having to dig through my makeup bag to find what I want. This would make it so much easier.

  19. Calvin | 15th May 18

    A pretty bag that transforms, never seen anything like it.
