Set and Ready To Go With Mecca Cosmetica’s Jet Set Travel Collection

Mecca Cosmetica Jet Set Travel Collection

Today’s post isn’t so much a review per se but something I recently purchased that I’d like to show you. In other words, drown you with lots of photos because my goodness, this one’s a beauty. It’s the Mecca Cosmetica Jet Set Travel Collection.

Now I’ve been lusting after the Anya Hindmarch Inflight Bag for quite some times now, but the thought of paying US$250 for a plastic cosmetic pouch is almost sickening to my ears, heart and wallet. So I watched blogger after blogger, YouTuber after YouTuber use this and I salivated in envy. That was, until a few days ago, when I was browsing the Mecca website and I stumbled upon the Mecca Jet Set Travel Bag. Now I haven’t technically seen nor felt the Anya Hindmarch bag in person but in photos alone, the Mecca Jet Set Travel Bag looks awfully similar. And it was only AU$50!

Unfortunately, the Jet Set Travel Bag is mighty popular; it’s sold out online and almost in all stores. I didn’t want to think too much about it given that I probably won’t be able to get it. That was until I stepped into a Mecca store and saw the Jet Set Travel Collection.

I must say, the bag looks far better in person than it does in pictures. The Travel Collection doesn’t only come with the bag but also a few Mecca Cosmetic items like the Lip de Luscious SPF 25 Lip Protectant (7ml), Soft Focus Smoothing Primer (15ml), Beauty Sleep Artistry Eye Brightener, To Save Face SPF 30+ (30ml), Clean Slate Remover (35ml) and Clean Slate Face Washing Cloth. The items were so tempting that I ended up getting the Travel Collection instead of just the Travel Bag.

I’ve only used the Mecca Cosmetica To Save Face SPF30+ sunscreen and while it’s not typically the type of sunscreen I’m drawn to, it’s actually not bad. I’m pretty keen on giving the rest a go.

The hardware for the bag comes in rose gold and while I’m not usually a fan of rose gold, I must admit that it looks really fine with the clear and black plastic. One compartment is deeper than the other. The zippers are sturdy and the bag can fit quite a lot of things.

The standalone pouch retails at AU$50 and the entire travel collection retails at AU$110. It’s actually not a bad deal given that these aren’t just deluxe sample sizes.

I can’t wait to bring this along the next time I travel. Sorry Anya Hindmarch, I’m over your Inflight Bag now that I have this. 😀

Have you seen this in store? Do you have that Anya Hindmarch pouch? What’s your favourite toiletries/makeup bag?

    I just saw this on their website. Looks very nice! I’ve only used a primer from their brand and am very happy with it. Hope to try some more of their products!

      I’m going to try out the primer for this weekend’s party that I’ll be attending. Let’s see if it holds up! 🙂

    Nooooo why aren’t you a fan of rose gold hahaha. Personally don’t see a need for designer cosmetics travel pouch since I just stuff my inflight stuff in a transparent bag that I got at Boots (similar style to the mecca one above without the fancy-schmancy zippers and stitching). Also heard lots of good comments about Mecca cosmetics, hmm maybe I’ll get a few of their stuff when I visit aus.

      Hahahaha yeah not a fan of rose gold. Rose gold doesn’t look good on me. I have very yellow skin tones so yellow gold looks far better. Having said that, rose gold homeware? Very pretty!

      Mecca is more of your Space NK than Sephora. Mecca Maxima is more Sephora-like. When you do visit Australia (particularly Melb), look me up!

    Oh my, this is certainly a beaut! I do admit liking the look of the Anya Hiindmarch pouch, but I’m a practical sort and know I’d never be able to use it, so my Ikea pouch serves me wonderfully! Partly because I like to pack all my shower stuff together too 😀

      I’m a collector of sorts; I also collect makeup bags. Hello hoarder! 😀

    I haven’t tried any of the Mecca line as I’m always distracted by Nars or Hourglass or Too Faced whilst I’m there! Will definitely have to check them out as I am loving the rose gold accents on that pouch! It looks stunning!

      Hahahah I know what you mean! I almost always overlook the Mecca Cosmetica brand because I zero in on, say, Sunday Riley, Dyptique, etc etc. I blame their newsletters. They always get me and my money. 😛

    This looks sensational! The bag does look great. I haven’t seen the Anya Hindmarch pouch but will certainly be googling it now! Love it when you find an equally good product at a fraction of the price! Woo! x

      Apparently this has been around for a while but I’ve never even checked it out because I was always distracted by other brands that Mecca stocks. Thank goodnes I didn’t end up getting the Anya Hindmarch bag because if I did and I saw this bag at a far cheaper price, I’d be kicking myself silly!

    Tine lovely, interested in a haul swap?? I’ve been lusting after the anya hindmarch bag too, this looks equally as good and I like rose gold! Will trade you stuff from London!!!

      Oooooh yes please! What you looking for? I’ve only ever done this once so I’m not too clear on the rules, etc. EMAIL ME! 😀 (

    I’ve been too scared to try Mecca Brand products, but maybe I will now, because look at that bag! So gorgeous, and that rose gold just sings to me!

      It’s gorgeous, right? As for Mecca stuff, they’re actually not bad! They’ve only brought out more of their own stuff about a couple of years ago. Previously there weren’t that many items. Their nail polishes are actually pretty good!

  8. Megan

    I picked up the makeup bag by itself last time I was in Mecca and think it’s brilliant! I had also been looking for a see through travel bag and this has become my go to travel bag now when I go on work trips.

    1. Tine

      It’s so pretty, right? I wouldn’t mind just getting the clear bag, to be honest, but hey, these Mecca items aren’t too bad themselves so I guess I’m all right. Quick question though: can I use this as my see-through back for LAGs on the plane instead of the ugly plain zip-lock ones? 🙂

      1. Megs

        I wish I could say yes but every airport is very different and some are pretty specific about using those crappy ziplock ones. Something like this would probably be accepted in the states but not the UK.

        1. Tine

          Hmm that’s true. I used a similar clear bag like this when I travelled to Japan and they wouldn’t allow me to bring it in. I had to empty the contents into a ziplock bag they provided before I could go in. Oh well, thanks anyway. Yeah I reckon this would be acceptable in the US.
