Makeup bags kind of come with an expiration date. Once you start piling all your crap into one, it’s only a matter of months—and road trips—until it starts to look a little worse for the wear, with lipstick smeared on the inside and the outside collecting the dirt you didn’t even know you had at the bottom of your purse.

That’s all the more reason to keep your cosmetics bag game on the up-and-up by replacing yours as necessary—i.e., you totally could use a brand-new one. These 15 choices are perfect for traveling, or just tossing in your purse when you’re on the go. They’re also legitimately cute, so you’ll actually want to have them hanging around … unlike that old one with the eyeliner all over it.
