What's In My Traincase?

Hi dolls.  Today, school was canceled due to freezing, below zero temps.  That meant, I had some extra time and decided to do a What's in my... post today.  I decided to feature my train case today, just because I had used it to pack up all of my makeup for my long weekend in MN earlier this month, and just never transitioned back into my old daily makeup storage.
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.
I can fit a lot inside of it and it holds all of my necessities, plus more!  I listed everything in each of the trays, and painstakingly linked back to my blog on each product if I had reviewed it or talked about itYou'rewelcomeverymuch.  :)

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
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:
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 

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  
Elf Lip Locked -Depotted
Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick in Mocha Muse

The very bottom of the train case: 
Palladio Rice Powder in Warm Beige
Sephora Mineral Powder in Tan
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! 

Meanwhile, check out my other What's In My...posts!


  1. I can't believe you took the time to do all of that and you linked back to the products! Wow! Thank you so much! What a nice traincase and you have everything! I want a traincase, but I don't have nearly enough stuff to put in it and I'm afraid I'd tried to fill it up! LOL Thank you again for sharing...that must've taken you forever!

    1. Crystal,
      It did take me forever, but it was fun going through all of my makeup. Also, seeing old posts made me sort of cringe-I think I've come a long way! lol. I'm glad you liked the post!
