I bought this train case from KMart, from the brand Caboodles. I know that you can find these pretty much anywhere though and in many kinds of prints. The other day, I found one at Ulta in leopard print!
This train case is made from black leather and has white stitch trimming. It is very sturdy and made very well. It has two snap closures on top and a handle that makes portability easy. When it has makeup in it, it is actually pretty heavy. I like how sturdy it is though because that means my makeup is safe!
Here, it what it looks like when I open it up. The top folds away, and there are trays nestled in. These trays fold out and away, with two more trays on the bottom, and a larger storage area on the very bottom.
Here is the first tray, on the left hand side of the case:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Second tray, left hand side:
(w/Rice Paper, Patina, Sable and Club)
MAC shadow single in Show Stopper
CoverGirl shadow single in Tapestry Taupe
Wet 'n Wild shadow singles in Nutty and Creme Brulee
Prestige brow liner in Earth Brown
Wet 'n Wild pencil sharpener
Third Tray, left hand side:
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and Tough as Taupe
Wet 'n Wild Fergie Gel Liner in Little Black Dress
Duo Dark Tone lash glue
Lash Grip lash glue
Wet 'n Wild liquid liners in black & dark brown
Prestige eye liner in Brown
And now, to the other side!
Here is the top, right hand side tray:
Hello Kitty Mirror
Victoria's Secret blush in Fresh Love
Mac Blush in Blunt
Wet 'n Wild Fergie hi-light in Rose Champagne Glow
Khroma palette in Khloe's Kardazzle
Avon heated lash curler & extra battery
Second tray, right hand side:
The Balm's Bahama Mama Bronzer
Wet 'n Wild Mega Glow hi-lighter in Catwalk Pink
L'Oreal Projec Runway Blush in The Queen's Blush
Essence Twilight's Breaking Dawn blush in Renesmee Red
Elf Duo Blush and Bronzer
Third tray, right hand side:
CoverGirl lipstick in Heavenly
Elf Studio Glossy Gloss in Berry Blush
MAC lipsticks in To the Future and Angel
Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in #08
Rimmel lipstick in Airy Fairy
Urban Decay Lip Junkie gloss in Naked
NYX lip liner in Natural
Max Factor lip liner in Hipster
The very bottom of the train case:
Palladio Rice Powder in Warm Beige
L'Oreal True Match Foundation in Natural Buff
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transluscent
Boxed false lashes
And that's pretty much it! When I travel, I take my brushes with me and they all fit nicely into my Hello Kitty tin.
The bottom of the case has enough room for me to lay that tin right on top and so I have everything in one spot!
I have just been keeping all of my daily makeup in this train case. I figured I might as well use it, because it was just sitting, unloved, in the corner of my room. It is pretty big though, and won't fit under my bathroom sink, so I leave it right outside of my bathroom door. When I am doing my makeup, I just pick it up before I head to the bathroom and when I'm done, I just drop it back off. This makes it easy to see which products I have, and allows me to shop my stash more due to larger storage.
Please let me know if you have any questions on anything-I will be happy to answer them!
