Train case, worth it?

I've been wanting a Sephora train case for a while but they are soooooo expensive! I've seen people on here talking about Caboodle, which is much cheaper (but not as pretty in my opinion). Are the Sephora ones more sturdy? out of better material? I saw this and I'm tempted....SO tempted.....

(Personally I prefer a color other than pink. I used to be more tomboy and angsty, but BT has made me more mellow and all pink and girly...)

 

Persuade/dissuade me. >.<

Re: Train case, worth it?

It was from a while back so the powder is pretty settled in Smiley Tongue

Not to mention the powder happened to smudge when my case was closed (shadow cracked and made its way out of the case and onto the inside of the train case) and with it jingling around for a while I wasn't able to just lift it on a surface level.

Re: Train case, worth it?

In terms of durability, they're exactly the same. The only difference is how the compartments are arranged on the inside and the label on the box.

The smart thing to do would be to look at several different kinds of train cases to find out what best meets your needs, then go online to try to find the best deal on the case you decide on.

 

I have a fantastic leather Caboodles case that I bought because it reminded me of music gear. lol It keeps all of my stuff organized so I'm happy enough with it that I'm not tempted by Sephora's cases (which are really overpriced IMO).

 

What I mean is find one that meets your requirements and maybe complements your style.

Re: Train case, worth it?

anyone who was waiting on the traincase.....it's half off right now in the sale section! Go!

Re: Train case, worth it?

Like you I also did tons of research on various traincases. In my experience, traincases were either WAY TOO BIG and meant for professionals or small, dinky and poorly made. It was impossible for me to find a good, average size.

I LOVE my Sephora traincase.

It's lockable, has an extra strap for travel/the airport, has adjustable dividers that you can use to make the traincase fit your needs exactly. It can fit ALL of my accumulated makeup (and I have tons) and it's super sturdy and easy to clean. It's among my favorite purchases at Sephora. I actually wrote a glowing review for it. (I have the silver croc case.) Smiley Happy

Good luck on finding your dream train case! I couldn't recommend the Sephora one more highly. In my opinion, it's worth every cent. Smiley Happy

Re: Train case, worth it?

I noticed you said you were wondering if it was made of metal. It is. Smiley Happy I forgot to add that.

Last post, I promise!

Have you seen this?

If I didn't already have a traincase, I'd be buying this right this second. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Train case, worth it?

I was not going to buy anything else this month, ugh but this train case is on my loves list. Aaarrrggghhhh!

Re: Train case, worth it?

I'm stubbornly waiting for the discounts, and hoping the old perks link will get fixed, and hoping the $10 tweezers will come back. lol. Yes, I am stubborn and greedy. X.X

Re: Train case, worth it?

@beautytester - I'd say you are determined and on a budget Smiley Wink

Re: Train case, worth it?

That sounds much better, lol. I did grocery shopping today, that kind of put things into perspective. It's not the first time I see the traincase in sales, so if I missed it I won't feel like I'm dying inside. I'll let fate decide. =P

Beauty tester,

 

If you play the current (can't remember the name of it) bouncy ball promo on the left side of the front home page of Sephora, one of the prizes is a code for 10% off and can be used until 10/31.  

 

Now you have got me wanting the train case for storage too.  LOL

Re: Train case, worth it?

Well, it is a good investment. I'm considering whether to get the one on sale right now (as mentioned by half dozen posters here, lol) or the super pretty pink one. But with the % off......I might just get the black one, AND the pink one if that goes on sale. =X

Darn it, there goes my money.

Re: Train case, worth it?

The super pretty one is out of stock 😢

 

Re: Train case, worth it?

The pretty pink one is out of stock because it's new and not in yet. Sephora will prob make it available in a couple of month, and if Im lucky, then hopefully it will go on sale next summer. =)

Re: Train case, worth it?

There's an awesome train case in the sale section right now--half off! $55 

Re: Train case, worth it?

The traincases from Sephora are soooo worth the investment!  I have had mine for almost 4 years and it still looks brand new.  It is pretty durable too.  My boyfriend dropped it down a whole flight or stairs once!  He is still alive to tell the tale after giving me a heart attack when it happened.  It didn't break anywhere and also none of my products and tools inside broke either.  Well worth the money.
