MZ Wallace Medium Savoy Cosmetic: Review & What’s in My Bag

MZ Wallace Medium Savoy Cosmetic: Review & What’s in My Bag


hey everyone wanted to do a quick review
for you on an MZ wallace accessory piece this is called the medium savoy cosmetic
and I think it retails for about forty five dollars i happen to have it here in
the color river bedford which is a stunning bright cobalt blue color i am
just absolutely in love with it this is overall made of the MZ Wallace’s signature bedford nylon material so it’s just a nice smooth
coated nylon with that’s stain resistant water resistant and just perfect for all
your needs very lightweight love that about it so this is one of two sizes that I
believe they make at least only two sizes that i’m aware of at the moment
this is the medium and then I also happen to have the large size Savoy
cosmetic bag i’m going to do a more in-depth review on this particular bag
in a subsequent video but i just wanted to throw it into this video to give you
a size comparison of both you can see that the large is quite a bit bigger
than the medium much taller much wider and i like to use the large for actual
travel toiletries and cosmetics whereas this one I like to use as a grab-and-go
kind of hold all of my essentials together kind of bag that i can switch
in and out of all my different larger bags that’s what I like this one for the
medium so yeah you can see the large is quite huge and it’s the perfect size for
travel/cosmetic type things so i think this one retails for about 85 something like
that so anyway back to the medium size and
just getting into the features here you can see that it the exterior has two
nice little tiny pockets the back has a sort of flat small zipper
pocket and then the main compartment just
closes with a top zip here you can see that the silver hardware is just very
nice and shiny and it has MZ wallace on all of the zippers including the back
one there’s nice Italian leather trim on
the bottom with the MZ Wallace logo and then the designers were very
clever i think in including these little tiny d-rings on the sides of the
bag the bag doesn’t come with any attachable straps or wristlet straps
or anything like that but the fact that they did include these enables you to
just use your own so I happen to have a Petunia Pickle Bottom wristlet strap
from one of their wallets I think it was the “Whereabouts Wallet” so i just took
that off of that and I can clip it on here as i need and i can just grab and
go I often find myself throwing all of my
essential items in here and then just clipping on the wristlet strap and then
I can ditch my larger bag and just go with this one it’s perfect for that so I
thought it was very very clever and very nice of them i really appreciated them attaching these little d-rings on the sides you could if you really wanted
to you could attach a longer crossbody strap to these however I found that when
you do that because of the positioning of the d-rings is kind of low on the bag
it kind of hangs a little funny you can imagine so I don’t usually do that but
you could if you really wanted to and it’s kind of nice to have that option so
back to the pockets of this bag the two exterior ones i thought were so cute and
so adorable and such a nice kind of tribute or homage to MZ wallace’s very
classic beloved styles such as the Belle the Paige and the Hayley so I really like
how these two exterior pockets really reminded me of those really classic
styles that they make just really clever of them to do that and these two
exterior pockets are really really useful for holding a lot of your smaller
essentials and so we’ll just get into it right here you can see on the left side i have an EOS lip-balm, those little chunky eggs it fits really really nicely in there you
can see there’s plenty of room to spare I think these pockets are really really
good for small toiletry items small maybe sample size of toiletries or
sample sizes of cosmetics perfect size pockets for that type of stuff and then
on the right side i just have a bottle of eyedrops that I carry with me all the
time as well as an EOS lip a chapstick I got those in the front pockets
there super handy for grab-and-go then in the main compartment I just have a bunch of random stuff in
here I have some Colgate Wisp portable toothbrush things and you can see that a
big package like this fits perfectly in there with no problems then I just have
a couple of lotions in here this is an EOS lotion as well as an Aveeno like a
sample size Aveeno lotion and then I have a Marc Jacobs Daisy rollerball
perfume it fits great in there i have a taller lip gloss that fits great in
there another lipstick and then you can see whoops forgot the floss here always
have to have some floss with me and then at the bottom you can see it’s really
really random i know but these are just some office supplies that i find myself
reaching for constantly when I’m out and about or at work I just I don’t know for
some reason the highlighter and post it flags are items that I have always found
myself needing but not having so I wanted to prevent that by having that in
my bag at all times so you can see that this main compartment is quite spacious
can hold tons of things but in addition they also added a little flap for you to
like further organize and divide things which was just such another great
touch of MZ Wallace here so there’s the flap and back here i just keep some hair
ties and some band-aids so then we’ll get into the very back
pocket and there’s only one item that i usually keep in here even though there’s
room for a lot of other things but in here I just keep my handy-dandy little
purse hook so this is just something that is really useful for when I’m at a
restaurant or anywhere else where I want to keep my bag off of the ground I just rest this on top of a table and
then the hook hangs right off of the table and I can put my bag or hang it
off of this hook here and then to store it back it just folds right up and
secures together with a magnet so it stays closed love that and I always keep
it in the back pocket here so I always know where it is but the back pocket is
quite spacious I can fit the highlighter in there as well as the lip glosses
lipsticks rollerball actually the rollerball’s a little tight but all of
those things those four things i was able to fit in here into the back pocket
so just in case you really want to cram you can so good size but we’ll put the
purse hook back in there and then I’ll kind of just re-pack it for you just to
give you an idea because like I said about the grab-and-go option this bag is perfect for that so for
example even with all of these random things that I have in here i can also
put my phone which is an iphone 6s and if you’re curious this is my newest case
i have only had it for a couple of days this is called a loopy case which is
really handy for using your phone one-handed or if you just want to loop
it around your finger and go so this is the iphone 6s fits fine in
there i can grab my keys toss them in there and this happens to
be my wallet the current wallet it’s a very old thing that I just resurrected
out of the closet this is actually a Fossil coin purse super old but I do
like it and it’s just it’s a nice versatile metallic color and it has all
the compartments that I need I can put cash i can put coins in the front zipper
pocket i can put all of my cards receipts just stuff them into the main
zippered compartment and then the back has a window for my ID so that is my
current wallet and I can even wow it’s really crammed in there but I could
even stuff that in there too and fold it all up and then attach the handy
wristlet strap and I’m ready to roll so yeah this is just a super useful very
versatile accessory piece I think it’s a staple to have in any MZ wallace
collection i just i really hope they never stop making this style it’s
concerning to me right now because i’m always on mzwallace.com’s website
and I don’t see it currently listed there right now as of September 2016 so
I’m hoping maybe it’s just a little pause right now and maybe they’re coming
out with some fantastic new colors or something but i am a little bit worried
that they don’t have it on their website right now I’m hoping they are not trying
to stop making it and that it will be making a comeback soon but like i
said before I think it retailed or I got it for about forty five dollars off of
the mzwallace.com website i’m sure you could probably find more of these on
Nordstrom or Bloomingdale’s or other websites like that where they sell MZ
wallace products but right now they don’t have it on the website please MZ
wallace don’t stop making it please you’ll make me very sad if you do but anyway I
just thought i would throw my two cents in there about that so this is an amazing little accessory
piece it just holds a ton as you can see i packed to the brim because I threw
all of my random stuff in there at the end but still holds everything expands and just is just so insanely
adorable so if you have any questions or comments
feel free to post below i hope this video was helpful for you and thank you
so much for watching
