Here’s something you should know about me: I’m an avid TikTok watcher. During the pandemic, I found myself perusing the app for funny, lighthearted videos to pass the time. However, the notorious algorithm got the best of me and began to show me videos of things that I found super relatable and, inevitably, kept me hooked.
The funny thing about TikTok is that it’s become a commerce platform of sorts — especially as of recent, with the rise of online shopping and people following “influencers” for top products and gifting ideas. So, naturally, while I was scrolling one night, I came across this TikTok of a shockingly spacious makeup bag that would be perfect for all my beauty products and travel needs. The best news? It’s available at Amazon for less than $25.

The Pocmimut Makeup Bag is made of a high-quality and soft faux leather fabric that’s waterproof, durable, and lightweight, making it easy to tote while in transit. It has a large main pouch that is expandable to fit way more than you think and zips closed to keep your products safe and secure. It can hold skincare items such as cleansers and moisturizers, and it has two internal side pockets for serums, spot treatments, or makeup remover pads. Plus, the inner material is easy to wipe clean should you experience any spills or makeup stains.
The bag’s discreet zippered bottom is equipped to hold eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, eyeliners, and mascaras, and even has a pouch designed specifically for makeup brushes with five slip pockets. There is even a clear plastic flap to ensure that your brushes (especially if you haven’t washed them in a hot minute) don’t make a mess in your bag. The makeup kit also comes with a drawstring bag for additional protection and a compact mirror for doing your makeup on the go.

As I’ve been on the move more than ever this year, I’ve needed a makeup bag that can store all my favorite products. When I traveled home for the holidays recently, I had to learn how to pack lightly, considering I could only bring so much on the train from the city to the suburbs. But, thanks to this genius and spacious makeup bag, I was able to fit all of my essentials — from full-size cleansers and moisturizers to mascara, lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, and more —and even had space to bring back post-holiday beauty gifts.
Amazon shoppers also can’t stop raving about this TikTok makeup bag, with many claiming that while it’s “perfect for travel,” it’s so good that they actually “use it every day.” One customer shared that it’s “super convenient,” adding that it’s “nice and roomy” and that they love that they can “grab the whole thing and take it with me when traveling.”
While users are impressed with how much the makeup bag can fit, quite a few highlighted how useful the separate brush holder pouch is. One shopper said, “This is a daily makeup bag for me. Plenty of space and I love the sleeves for your brushes. The handle on top makes it great for traveling.” Another wrote, “I love how the bottom unzips for separate storage for makeup brushes.” And yet another added that they liked how it kept their “makeup brushes clean during travel.”

Australia Implements New Travel Bans Ahead of Christmas Due to COVID-19 Outbreak
Victoria, Queensland, and the Northern Territory temporarily banned arrivals from Sydney. Digital road signs warn against travel to the Northern Beaches in the suburb of Crows Nest on Dec. 20, 2020, in Sydney, Australia.
Australian officials have begun implementing interstate travel restrictions as a COVID-19 outbreak grows in Sydney, the country’s largest city.
The most recent outbreak in Sydney has been linked to 83 new cases, which trace back to Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The state of New South Wales conducted a total of 38,000 COVID-19 tests within 24 hours to track the spread of the virus, which does not seem to extend beyond the Northern Beaches.
Up until this new outbreak, Australia had gone more than two weeks without any local transmissions and most travel restrictions had been lifted ahead of Christmas.
“2020 is not done with us yet,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said, the BBC reported. “The events of the past few days… are incredibly frustrating and disappointing for people all around the country who had plans in place to get together and move in between states.”
Victoria, Queensland, and the Northern Territory temporarily banned arrivals from Sydney on Monday while South Australia and Tasmania imposed a mandatory 14-day quarantine for travelers from the capital. Western Australia implemented a hard border closure.
The Australian Capital Territory (ACT) of Canberra warned outside travelers to not visit, or they would be subject to a 14-day quarantine, according to Reuters.
The measures were announced over the weekend, offering travelers a short window to travel before the new rules were put in place. Airlines also canceled several flights from Sydney Airport.
In New South Wales, holiday gatherings are limited to 10 people in households and 300 people in public establishments. Residents are urged to wear masks while in public, although not required. Rules regarding Christmas gatherings are expected to be released later this week, according to Sky News.
Australia has become known for its strict response to COVID-19 outbreaks. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the country has reported about 28,100 infections and 908 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Hotels.com Is Giving Travelers $5,000 to Go on a Vacation Based on Their Literal Dreams
Winners will connect with expert dream interpreters for a virtual consultation before booking their literal dream vacation.
Sleeping in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives, admiring the northern lights in Alaska, and sailing around the Amalfi Coast — bucket-list trips like these usually come to mind in conversations about dream vacations. But what about a getaway based on your literal dreams? Where would you go if the stories your brain spun at night were leading the way?
Well, five lucky people are about to find out, thanks to the latest travel giveaway hosted by Hotels.com.
