M·Y·O Cosmetic Clutch came into my life at the perfect time. As I’ve often been mentioning I’m about to set sail on a 3 week journey. I am not a light packer by any means but I absolutely have to be for this trip. I don’t have the strength to lug around a lot of luggage and the airlines won’t let me do that anyway. So I’ll be a very judicious packer and M·Y·O is here to save the day/s.
The M·Y·O Cosmetic Clutch™, aka Makeup-Your-Own, is a magnetic palette that is sturdy as can be. In so many of my reviews I’ll mention if something is good for travel but this steps it up a notch because you can put in the products that you are afraid might be too fragile and have no fear that they’ll spill or shatter.sample
The palette can be used with the inserts or alone with any assortment of products you prefer. The clutch comes with 3 Beauty Pods, a double ended eye brush, and 2 magnetic style sticks. You also can purchase extra Beauty Pods when you are making your initial purchase. That would be handy since you can fit quite a few of those magnetic pods in to hold your foundations, potions, and lotions.
The bottom of the clutch is magnetic so it works wonderfully with eyeshadow and blush pans. And you can customize it more when you first purchase by choosing the color of the rubberized Cosmetic Circlet™ in either Black, Silver, Fuchsia or Turquoise.
What makes the M·Y·O Cosmetic Clutch™ perfect is that it closes shut so well that you’ll have no fear of things breaking or of the clutch opening. It’s very sturdy while being attractive too. There’s a full size mirror that is of great quality. And M·Y·O has a secure sliding latch that makes it perfect for home, on-the-go, and travel. It would be wonderful for a gym bag.
My plan is to take this in my carry-on since I have a fear of showing up without any makeup at all. I’ve filled mine with the following: 4 pan eyeshadows from Makeup Geek and Ofra, two foundations (Idun and The Ordinary), and a cream blush from Youngblood. I’ve also keeping the double sided eye brush, a flat sponge (not seen in the picture), my tweezers and my iLash comb in it. This will serve me well until I’m unpacked.
The Beauty Pods hold a surprising amount of product. Between the two pods I’ll have enough foundation for my 3 week trip, ditto the cream blush. I’m taking a full size eyeshadow palette but that’s going to be in my suitcase plus it doesn’t have enough light shades so I added those to my M·Y·O.
This takes magnetic cases to a new level and one that I’m excited to have in my life. I can use the style sticks to divide up products but even better the magnet on them is strong enough to pick up the eyeshadows so that I don’t end up digging my fingers in the color. It’s the little things that count. — Marcia
