I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

*yaaaaaaaaaaaay*jumps and rolls around happily* I was unable to resist the sephora traincase in the sales section and brought it. I was surprised! It was heavier than I expected, but I suppose that's expected of a sturdy case. It's the large size so the buckles are on the side rather than under the handle. The edges are metal and the rest are quilted thin leatherish fabric.

Everything inside is covered with foam, the trays, the dividers, and everything (top, bottom, side) inside the case. So if you have a powder spill, better vaccum it up asap and if you got cream/liquid on it....well then, graffitti style it is.

The reviews were right, you can't see everything on the 2nd tier and it's kind of inconvinient taking out dividers unless it's the top row. When you pull it up, it hits the bottom of the tier on top before it comes out completely. You have to kind of rotate/tilt it bottom up trying to slide it out side ways. =/

Anyways, I wasted no time jumping into one of my favorite past time, organizing things. =X

I'm surprised I was able to fill it (above are all unopened cosmetics, a couple new things coming in, and I have the same amount opened on my vanity). If you have a lot of makeup this is better for storage than everyday use. If you don't have lots of makeup, you can put frequently used on top, rarely used and new on the bottom. Overall it's a pretty good deal for ~$45. =)

 

ps. The case also comes with key! So if you don't want curious little kids to play dress up with your makeup when you are not home, or your nosy friends/hubby to know how much makeup you have, you can lock it up. =P

 

pps. If you are beating yourself up for not getting one, don't. This is the 2nd or 3rd time I see one on sale, so if you are patient and vigilant there will be others coming.

Hi BeautyTester, how exciting!  I've had my Sephora train case for 5+ years and it's still going strong!  I use it to carry all my makeup that I use for freelance work, so it has traveled near and far.  You're gonna love it.  Smiley Happy -Laura

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Nice!

Looks like you have not wasted any time filling that beauty up! Glad that you are happy with your purchase Smiley Happy

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Congrats!  I was actually going to buy this last night with my FF sale coupon, but it had just sold out.  Snooze, ya lose. 

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

It looks so organized! So much makeup! and are those mini perfumes? Or the regular ones? Because then that is a lot of space!

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

@Jenblush. The only mini in there is the Dior on the top tier. The MJ on the bottom are full sized. There are a lot of space! But you'd be surprised how much makeup you have as you are filling it. =X

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Ooooooh... organized makeup... So prettyyyyyy...

 

I'm on an Organizing My Makeup kick right now and I've been thinking about a train case. But I think I'd rather have something open so I can get to it all easily. And I want it to be clear so I can see everything easily.

 

But all those nifty compartments make me want one!

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Your train case looks really nice, @beautytester!  I hope you enjoy it!

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Thank you for sharing pictures! I was thinking of buying one of these for my collection. 

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Nice!

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

I spy with my nosy little eye.....Rosebud Salve! I cant live without that stuff, am on my second tin right now.

 

Thanks for sharing! Traincases are just not for me, they are too small for my makeup stash and I like having everything in one place. But they truly are genius. My friend has this big metal caboodles one that she'd had for years and its still in tip top shape!

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Lol, spy as much as you want. That's Smith Rosebud salve brought on Sephora. I am finishing up the last bit of C.O. Bigalow one. I'm afraid they are no longer enough for my increasingly dry lips in the winter, so I'll be switching to TokyoMilk Dark lip balms and won't be opening that until Spring. 

 

Yeah my stash is twice the size in there, and that's not including the nail polishes. It is a but clunky and heavy for my taste, but great for organized storage. =)

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

it looks so pretty! i would definitely be checking the sale section every day just so I can get my hand on this gorgeousness!!!

 

thanks for the review, beautytester! Smiley Happy

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

It is pretty edgy. It's sturdy, dark and studded. It meant business. Altho is it bad that I'm waiting for the pink one to go on sale so I can grab it....despite the fact it's not even released yet? o.o

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

I'm loving my new Sephora traincase that I got during the sale too! Though I stuffed the bottom of my traincase chock-full of deluxe samples... divided into skincare with spf, skincare without spf, makeup, and my stockpile of false eyelashes!

I have been watching Youtube videos and blogs about how to organize the Sephora train case. It's really varied out there seems like -- some give their own unique pile of makeup/skincare some organizin' lovin', some actually pack it for travel and some are makeup artists who have totally different priorities of what needs to be in their train cases.

 

Me personally, for everyday, I already have the basic makeup on my vanity and skincare in the bathroom mirror cabinet. Previously, I put everything else in 5 different little bags. I love that now when I have some time on my hands, I can open the train case and have everything in view, and ready myself for some beautifying/pampering experience, be it putting on makeup for a night out, or choosing a different mask to try for a night in Smiley Happy

 

Now the question is, what am I going to organize using those makeup bags now? =X

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Yeah so neat and beautiful. Love it.

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

You can use your extra makeup bags for organizing your purse- that's what I do. I have some thin cloth/ plastic ones that stack really nicely within my purse, so I can keep it clutter free (quite a feat when I use my bigger ones). 

 

In the small mint one I keep pens, my phone earbuds and a charger in. In the clear one, I have one of my favorite rollerballs, lip balm, a flattering lip stain that works with everything, some contact wetting drops, a hair tie and my John Masters Lavender Hydrating Mist. 

 

Those first two I keep in my purse always and never switch out their contents. Inside the taller, leopard print one, I keep makeup that I'm using that day, just in case I have any touch-ups that need to be done. So, right before I head out, I'll usually grab the concealer, lipstick & gloss, blush and eyeliner. 

 

Its an amazing way to stay organized, so if you do have extra bags, I definitely recommend doing some thing like that. Smiley Happy

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Wow. That is a seriously impressive set up. 

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

Does anyone have one of these and a caboodle/something to do I side by side comparison with? I would love to see that. Please, wink wink. Smiley Wink

Re: I got my Sephora traincase! (a review)

It's sooo pretty! I love it! Thanks for the review!
