Oprah says this makeup bag duo — down to $32, an all-time low — 'is ideal for travel'

The Mali + Lili Lola Beauty Bag Duo made Oprah's Favorite Things list in 2023, and you'll love it for 2024.

Makeup bag starting to look a little grungy? We've got just the replacement for it. Well, actually, Oprah does. The Mali + Lili Lola Beauty Bag Duo made it onto Oprah's Favorite Things 2023 list, and it's easy to see why. For starters, it includes not one, but two adorable bags, the larger of which can be converted into a crossbody. (We love a versatile accessory!) Plus, the timeless set comes in a slew of gorgeous colors, all of which are currently marked down during Amazon's Winter Sale. At nearly 30% off, grab one for yourself and one as a sweet Valentine's Day gift for a loved one.

Keep your cosmetics nice and contained with this oh-so-pretty set.

Why is it a good deal?

According to our price trackers, this is the lowest price this set has ever been marked down to — when you apply the on-page coupon, it's just $32, down from $44. That's pretty insane, considering you're getting two bags. We might not always be able to afford Oprah's go-to products, but this affordable duo won't break the bank.

Why do I need this?

When Oprah gives something her seal of approval, we listen. "This vegan leather set is ideal for travel — with a smaller pouch perfect for makeup and a larger one for accessories," she said. "Savvy folks cinch that one, transforming it into a going-out bag."

The compact pouch conveniently fits into the larger bag; you can store loose items like keys and lip balm in the smaller one to keep things more organized. The larger bag has a chic drawstring closure to keep items secure, and comes with a detachable strap should you want to wear it out.

Because it looks like leather, you'll easily be able to dress the bag up or down — and with 10 color options, spanning neutrals and brights, good luck choosing just one.

What reviewers say

"This purse is perfect and exactly what I needed," gushed one satisfied shopper. "The material is soft and the makeup bag is the perfect size to not take up too much space in the purse. I like the versatility of being able to carry the purse without the strap."

"I don't use it as a cosmetic bag, I use the large one as a purse," shared another happy customer. "I can't begin to tell you the number of compliments that I get. It is a great crossbody bag and the perfect size. Not too big and not too small. Can fit lots of stuff in there, and I don't lose things at the bottom of the purse."

"Despite the fact that I didn't realize that vegan leather is actually not leather (of course it isn't!), I do love this little two-piece bag," wrote third reviewer. "Well made, versatile and easy to carry. Oprah had it on her list, so now I am putting it on mine!"

"Very nice quality," raved a final fan. "I can see why it was one of Oprah's favorite things ... It would make a nice gift for that special someone."

Another on-sale Oprah fave? These ultra-cozy Barefoot Dreams socks:

Made of a fluffy poly microfiber, these socks earn high marks in the cushy department, making them perfect for walking around the house. Thanks to their longer length, you can also wear them with boots — though we suspect that once you have them on your feet, you'll want to forgo outdoor activities and stay comfy inside.

"I have these blissfully soft socks in a basket by my front door so people don’t have to wear shoes," shared Oprah. "Trust me, the homebodies in your life will want a pair, or in this case, three!"
