MAC Hey, Sailor! Gone Sailing Tote

MAC Hey, Sailor! Gone Sailing Tote

MAC Hey, Sailor! Gone Sailing Tote ($45.00) is a 10″ by 20″ navy-striped tote bag that cinches with a “gold” rope. It has faux leather on the bottom and along the top inch and a half of the tote with a glossy red interior for the same inch and a half (the rest is just the interior canvas of the navy-striped exterior).  The canvas portion isn’t super, super heavy, but it seems thick and durable enough for its purpose.  I bought one for myself, because I collect MAC’s summer totes just in hopes that I can fit Mellan into one of them, but then I received one from their press office this morning–so watch for a giveaway that includes the one I bought soon :)

MAC Hey, Sailor! Gone Sailing Makeup Bag Set($35.00) includes two coordinating navy-striped makeup bags. The smaller one is about 4″ by 5 1/2″, while the larger one is 5″ by 10 1/2″. They’re looped together with a “gold” rope and clip. Each bag has a “gold” zipper pull and metallic-navy nylon interior (well, feels like nylon to me). The exterior is thin canvas, and the area right by the zipper is patent red.  The makeup bags felt a little cheaper to me, and I don’t think they’d stand up to any heavy spills or the like. They should hold up fine with lighter usage.

    This is the sort of thing other cosmetic companies put out as a GWP, or at least PWP (with cosmetic products *included*).

    Aww Mellan , is like “Does it come in doggy size?” Cuteness.

  8. this bag is very chic!

  9. Not trying to criticize this item……However, no inside lining, the bag has no shape, no internal pocket….and now selling for $45.00!!!!  A great idea, but just doesnt hold up to the price….And no way can you take this to the beach.

    I ordered the makeup bags this morning. I love the stripes! I needed some new bags for weekend getaways with the hubby. :)

  11. The tote looks great and I would probably have bought it but I’m not sure about the shape.  I don’t like how long it looks and since I tend to carry a lot with me I know everything would be rolling around and getting jumbled.  Plus it can’t hold itself up and for me that’s a downside.  Also the price is a bit iffy.  It’s a shame because I like the idea and the way it looks, just not the utility.  There are times when I’m willing to buy something for looks alone (although I really try not to but sometimes I can’t help myself!) but a bag can’t be one of them and not for this price : /

    As soon as I saw these this morning I knew I had to have them – and I never buy MAC totes or bags, as much as I love the brand! I actually bought an Alexander Wang “Diego” bag that’s shaped similar to the tote, but is too nice to use to just knock around, and looks too heavy and not summery, so when I saw this I thought it was perfect!! The matching makeup bags were just too cute to resist.
    Also, I love how like, halfway through the video Mellan looks up and is like “no, Mom, I wasn’t looking through your bags, nothing to see here…”! I don’t have sound on my computer at work, so by visuals only he looks so adorably guilty! Mellan is just too precious.

    Ordered the tote yesterday!

    OK, had to buy the tote after watching your video.  My wallet does not thank you but my shopping heart does.  Can not wait to get this!!!!  I love summer….
