Inside the wallet there is a mirror on the left side and a clear PVC pocket on the right side. It also features an elastic band on the inside center of the wallet which is used to hold lipstick.

The applicable subheading for the lipstick holder of PVC will be 4202.32.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated, which provides for articles of a kind normally carried in the pocket or in the handbag, with outer surface of plastic sheeting, other. The duty rate will be 20% ad valorem.
