I was really happy to receive one of the makeup mats by Messie Mats. Just the other week when I went away for the weekend, I had been doing my makeup terrified that there was going to be some sort of makeup explosion and I would have to explain why there was a funny looking powder sprayed across their bed. These mats are one of those things that you can substitute with an old towel, but the wipe clean surface on the mats makes life one step easier. Who wants a scraggy rag to put their nice UD Naked palettes on anyway?
There are 6 different designs; Darcie, Millie and Rosie are all floral; Roxie, Lexie and Kimmie feature chevrons, stars and leopard print. I love that all these names are spelt with an ‘ie' instead of a 'y'. We have a tradition in our family that everybody's name is spelt with an ‘ie’ at the end; a bit like the Kardashians with their 'K' name tradition, but sadly that is where the similarities with Kardashians end.
These mats fold into a neat little rectangle which are easy to carry round and if you fold it correctly you have a little pouch that you can use to hold a few bits and bobs like your makeup brushes. These don’t just keep your surfaces clean; if you are a blogger these would be a great alternative surface for your blog photos.
