I have a huge collection too. I do occasionally use them as handbags--especially if I am going somewhere and I think there is a possibility that something could happen to a really good bag and I would be left devastated. I have a cute Prada-esque suede tote with a silky print lining from Victoria's Secret as well as a denim tote with black corset lacing on the front. My most recent tote is a cute linen woven with gold threads and velvet trim that came from Crabtree and Evelyn. I am definitely going to use that.

I love the makeup bags and have several really cute ones from L'Occitane. I use them to carry makeup in my handbags and for travel. In my classic collection, I have a set of small and larger Chanel cases with zippers and a pastel print of camellias. I never tire of receiving them.

^Sorry if that sounds confusing about the Chanel bags. I have had them for a long time and I believe they were gift sets that were simply a purchase. I am not sure if they still do something like that. The larger bag held a Chanel No. 5 eau de toilette and lotion. The smaller was nice because the bag contained an eye pencil, lipstick nail polish and mascara.

Clinique generally do a nice make up bag which is pretty ideal for travel etc, but in terms of day to day I would stay away, mostly due to the quality and the possibility its going to randomly fall apart on you!

I definitely use these, but not as a purse. I haven't ever received one I liked enough as a purse. I use them as a tote for an overnight stay somewhere where I can pack light, or to the beach, or anywhere I might need a light tote bag. And the makeup cases, I use for packing and organizing.

My tote from Lancome is really nice quality, and I have cute makeup bags from Lancome and also Givenchy.
