Gift Guide: Truffle “The Clarity Clutch”


Today I’m featuring Truffle, a clear PVC pouch with leather trimming. I first discovered this pouch through Sabrina at The Beauty Look Book and I couldn’t help but swoon all over it. I wanted to purchase this for over a year now, but I was having trouble justifying $42.00USD plus $12USD for shipping (and potentially duties and taxes). One day I decided to pull the trigger and say goodbye to my money.

(P.S if you sign up for their mailing list, they’ll email you a coupon code for 15% off.)

I’ve been a fan of clear makeup cases for some time now – but they’re quite hard to find. I’ve also been eyeing Anya Hindmarch’s In-Flight Patent Leather Trimmed Travel Case but the $250USD price tag makes it too hard for me to justify. I’ve also seen cute make up pouches by Marc Jacobs, Ted Baker and Kate Spade – not in clear plastic though.

After receiving this in the mail yesterday, I’m quite happy with my purchase. It’s perfect for travel or throwing in a large handbag. I love the clear portion because it beautifully displays makeup packaging. The leather detailing is nicely done with neat stitching and it features a high quality zipper. With that being said, I wanted to do a gift guide around The Clarity Clutch (in size Small) – which is one of their best sellers. I also want to note that the small size is TSA approved and measures at: 7 1/2” H X 9 3/4” W

This gift guide is meant for someone extra special in your life. Whether it’s for a sister or best friend, or you’re looking for birthday or bridesmaid gift ideas, here are my suggestions:

“Weekend Getaway” – Under $100

If you check out L’occitane they usually have gift sets available with travel-size items. One of my favorite scents from the line is Amande. This is also a perfect way to fill up your Truffle Clarity Clutch.
