With a prevalence of lime green I couldn't help but humming the Harry Lime Theme while unwrapping my purchase. Soundtrack aside, I was instantly pleased with the appealingly versatile fabric designs and the general color theme of blues and greens suits my taste as well. Once I puffed one of the pouches into shape it revealed a perfect size for toiletries too. Then I discovered that they have no lining. Picture me puzzled. While the bags seem sturdy enough this was rather unexpected. Of course, maybe I'm just too much of a s(ew)nob to even mention this.
Verdict? A fun boxy fabric surprise at a great discount!
Side Note: The option to additionally purchase a lining has now been added to the listing's text, probably courtesy to my respective review.

Personal Favorite? Blue and Purple Floral Pouch

Are you as fond of cute little bags as I am? Would you declare such a boxy pouch a keeper and fill it up with make-up and stuff or generously give one as a gift to someone dear instead?
