Calpak Small Clear Cosmetics Case


As of now, the small clear cosmetics case is the bestseller of the bunch. It’s sold out in the classic shades currently but is still available in four limited-edition hues. Carry it by its convenient handle.

“The clear viewing windows are great for seeing where everything is,” a reviewer says. “Love the storage bag it came with and the lay flat handle. Also, the way the inside unzips makes it easier to pull out your items versus if it was just a top zipper.”
