The interior features fitted inserts, which are detachable for additional makeup to be added after importation. The brushes will be imported with the case. The case is manufactured with an exterior surface of polyester man-made textile material. The case features a hinged lid, carrying strap and it is secured by means of a flap with metal snap fastener.

The applicable subheading for the vanity case (with brushes) will be 4202.12.8070, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for trunks, suitcases, vanity cases and similar containers, with outer surface of textile materials, other, other of man-made fibers.
