useful, but for different reasons
This bag is pretty big for cosmetics. I bought mine for road trips and college and it holds everything...makeup, toothbrush, toothpaste, full-sized shampoo and conditioner, perfume, brush, deodorant...everything. I wish it was slightly more compartmentalized as it only has 2 small pockets on one side and the clear bag on the other. I put smaller things in small cosmetic bags, then in this bag. I find the clear bag to be rather useless - it's stiff and fits/attaches awkwardly inside plus it isn't a TSA approved quart sized zip-top bag and they can get fussy about that. Overall it is a good way to keep everything you need to get ready in one place, especially when you're sharing a bathroom.
