Tested Thursday: Blank Canvas Cosmetics Travel Brush Case

blankcanvas-thI’m developing quite a collection of makeup brushes. I have them in many different sizes, different shapes and for different jobs. The great thing is, they also fit really happily into my Blank Canvas Folio case. But what happens if I am going somewhere and I need to bring some brushes along with me? Is there another option? Well, the Blank Canvas Travel Brush Case arrived on my desk recently, and it might be that option.

The Blank Canvas Travel Brush Case comes in the form of a zip up, black faux leather soft case. When zipped up it really presents as a tidy package. It’s neat and takes up no space at all. It also makes sure your precious brushes are safe from damage. I would hate having to ditch a brush from making a mess from the bristles in not transporting it properly. In that sense I can really see the benefit of this case.

Inside the case is where things get a bit more questionable though. The inside has a soft polyester lining, and on one half of the case an elastic fastening, stitched into two sections. My thought though, is that why doesn’t it run the full width of the case? Keep it in the two sections on one side, but then have smaller sections on the other, suitable for smaller brushes?

And here it is, seen with brushes inside. There are two large face brushes in here, along with one smaller eye brush. Looking at it, you can maybe get another small eye brush in there alongside the face brushes, and that’s it, unless you want to add in some loose brushes.

I think therein lies the crux of my problem with this travel case – it just isn’t big enough. I can quite easily go through 3 face brushes and a half dozen eye and lip brushes when getting ready. Unfortunately with this case I can see myself getting into the dilemma of do I bring the big case, or do I try to decide what to leave behind. In my world that is a very difficult thing to figure out.

One thing though that does hold up for it is that I can see a good use for it. It is a great size to keep brushes in my handbag for a night out. On a night out I will not need a huge amount of brushes, and this will certainly do a good job of protecting them! As for a travel case though, I’m not quite convinced.
