AMW Reviews: Charm PRO Makeup Artist Toolbelt

I have been using the most inexpensive toolbelt for quite some time!  It has helped me breezed through various gigs and don't get me wrong, I am very happy with it!  

BUT, 

I've encountered some shoots that demand "more touch ups" and there were times that I don't have enough space on my tiny toolbelt for bronzing powders, setting powders or bulky body glitters and lipsticks!  I tried to steer clear from the regular makeup toolbelts sold in the market as they are mostly meant for holding brushes! (and I don't need just that!)

When Sophie and I met up for The Hunger Games premier night c/o Nuffnang Philippines, she brought 2 Charm PRO Makeup Artist Toolbelts.  One in black and one for pink.  Everyone would think I'd go for pink but I honestly thought of going for black as it looks more professional!  *teehee*  I guess the "unprofessional-look during professional work" is what I'm aiming for! :)  But seriously, the hot pink got me!

Charm says ---
  • Made with handpicked fabric, design that is elegant and professional at the same time.
  • Made with a premium fabric that is light.
  • Made with textured fabric that is really, really easy to clean. Its textured fabric quality makes it easy to clean, as easy as just using wipes! You will never have stain woes on your makeup toolbelt again!
  • 20 slots for makeup brushes ( that one slot that can fit 2-3 small makeup brushes or one big makeup brush for each slot ) and lots of extra slots and pockets that you will love utilizing - for your tweezers, scissors, and other beauty tools!
  • Comes with a flap for that extra hygiene and will not cause your brushes to get scattered in your bag when traveling.
  • A zipper at the back of the toolbelt that you can even put in your palettes and some makeup there!
Dimensions :
Width : 13.5 inches

Pros
  • I've seen both black and pink and they are both good-looking!
  • The fabric used is indeed very easy to clean.
  • The brush pockets are wide in space so I can easily put back the brushes with not much effort.
  • I can store a lot of tools (tweezers, eyelash glue, scissors etc..), I can also store a whole makeup palette at the zippered portion.  
  • I love the space where you can put your business cards!
  • The zippered space at the back side is a nice BONUS!  I can put more makeup or even hair clips here! (I even put my mobile phone here! hehehe)
  • The flap is fold-able, you can fold it to protect your brushes and unfold it when you're at work!
  • The belt is adjustable and very comfortable to use.
  • The color is unique and eye-catchy!
Cons
  • I can't seem to find one for now.
Overall
I have used this on one very important shoot for a client, the touch up area and makeup area is quite far so I'm glad I have the Charm PRO Makeup Artist Toolbelt which saves me from going back and forth to 2 different rooms! 

Tips
  • I still prefer to put used makeup brushes on one side so I will know which brushes I need to clean at the end of the day.
  • Wipe stains immediately with brush cleaner wipes.
  • It would be cute to put your own "buttons" or clips to personalize your toolbelt!
Will I repurchase?
Not for now.  This one seems like it's going to last me for long! :)
