Ola bonita chiaca’s! How is everyone doing today? I am writing this post over the weekend and I’m relaxing for the few minutes I can as I write this. I love my time just zoning out and writing these reviews for you guys. I hope you too are enjoying your weekend where ever you are, and unless you live down under are finding ways to keep cool in this blistering heat! I have something really cool for you today, something that I myself really always wanted! Let us get right to it!
This black brush caddy is 10 inches long and 4 inches in diameter and perfect to hold all your makeup brushes no matter what length or width while travelling. It easily fits into your check in luggage and is pretty trouble free to fit in your hand luggage while travelling as well. This is a little bit big to fit in a purse though so watch out with that.
My Experience with Sephora PRO Brush Caddy:
First of all, I am having a hard time explaining what material this brush caddy is made of, because to be honest, I do not really know. It’s not like leather but not like plastic either. I think it is like a fabric material, but it is very strong and non bendable at the same time. So, it has to be reinforced with something. Whatever it is, it is pretty good, because with the whole effect of the fabric plus the reinforcement, it is not very heavy either.
Sorry, let me back up a little and start with what this actually is. So, this Sephora brush caddy is a cylindrical container device to help you carry around your makeup brushes when you travel. You can also store them at home in this contraption if you would like I suppose! The best thing about it is that if you open it up, then it converts into two brush holders to easily place on your hotel dresser or the one you have got at home.
The brush caddy can also be easily carried and it has a sling on the top of it for that purpose. The length of this sling cannot be adjusted however and it secures to the top portion of the brush caddy. The caddy closes with two click locks (I do not know the official words for these things, so I just made up “click locks,” I hope my pictures explain it all) on both sides which are pretty secure and have never opened on me no matter how roughly I have transported this case. Also, I have never noted any dents or bumps caused to the material when I have carried this in my hand luggage or checked in bags.
I had seen Inglot’s leather brush caddy, but that was too expensive for me at $36. I was also initially very hesitant to buy this because the Sephora website did not have the dimensions of this listed and I almost bought Make Up For Ever’s Dany’s Pouch for $31, but eventually decided to gamble on this one because it was much cheaper and I am really glad I did. I love carrying my brushes in this rather than in a bag or a roll up case because they get squished in those things. This way, they remain nice and fluffy and damage free! All my make up brushes fit in here individually regardless of their size and at a time I can carry 15 to 20 brushes in this thing.
One of the funny things about this brush caddy is that the click locks can be adjusted for size, as in you can pull out the extra fabric to elongate them, but I do not understand the purpose of that because it just makes the locking mechanism loose which can cause the brush caddy to open. So, I keep it on its tightest to keep my brushes safe. This is also water resistant as I found out accidentally one busy tea-filled morning or tea spilled I should say 😛
The best way to get my brushes in this I find is to carefully place my brushes upside down in the bottom container first and then close it upside down before I flip it the right way up and just jiggle my brushes around making sure that none of the hairs were caught in the seal. I am really surprised by how non heavy this thing is as well for how absolutely sturdy it is!
Pros of Sephora PRO Brush Caddy:
- Fits makeup brushes of any size.
- Very tough and sturdy.
- Locks well.
- Can also be carried by itself.
- Fits in hand luggage for travel.
Cons of Sephora PRO Brush Caddy:
- Not available in India yet!
Would I Repurchase Sephora PRO Brush Caddy?
I hope I do not need to repurchase this anytime soon and this lasts a good time, but I have done my research for brush caddy’s in the market and this is the cheapest, lightest and most durable (so far) product I have found, so I highly recommend it!
