Should I get a train case?

I'm going to do some shadestick swatches soon, I promise! I'm so busy with trying to decide what to bring to Los Angeles since I'm going on Friday! It's hard to decide what makeup to bring! I don't want to bring too much. I'm afraid it'll all melt or something down there in the 100+ degree weather lol. I think I should look into getting a train case too, but they're so pricey! and I only need a small one for my trip... but I want a big one just cuz... you know, for storage or something. Lol.


$39 @ Sephora. It's a mini train case, but it doesn't say how big it is so I'm a little wary about that...


$90 @ Sephora. Size: 13.75 x 8.5 x 9.25"


$74.50 @ cococosmetics.com. Size: 14 1/2" wide x 9" deep x 11" high


$84.50 @ makeupcreations.com. Size: 14 1/4” x 8 1/2" x 9 1/4”

hmmmm..great question.
I have sephora traincase and love it.
it is roomy, many compartments and i've had for 2 years now
it is great for moving and storing stuff..but i have to admit it will be too heavy to carry it as a carry on...well for me, i have back problems...
i think a traincase is a good investment.
Plus it helps me to not buy make-up all the time because at this rate, i need another traincase....

Oh that pink one is divine! I don't have a train case (as I've got way too much makeup to fit in one) but I've always thought they were a great idea...especially the little ones for travelling.
Please post lots of pics if you end up getting one! :)

Ohh they all seem nice, I love the 2nd one alot. I like pink one but it doesn't seem that strong. I do not own traincase yet. But, I went to some stores and I tried to open their traincase and it was not strong enough to hold all the different layers. I think it's a good idea to have one :)

oooooooo i like the pink one!!
i would just get a small one if i were u, cuz really u've got all kinds of storage at home so u dont really need a huge train case just so that u can store makeup at home. and think about it, it's gonna be sooo inconvenient for u to bring such a huge train case to travel! so i think a small one would be nice :)

oooo have fun in L.A.! =] how long are you gonna stay there?

I think the pink and the black train case attracts me most lol I like the price of the the mini one most, but I have no idea how "mini" it is lol

I've been looking for the perfect makeup storage case forever! This is a great question, hahaha. I love that last one cuz of the color... normal train cases look so ugly to me. Yuck.

wow..it is quite expensive..I am a traincase lover and I would say go for the traincase..but I just can't decide as all of them are expensive! Well it's ok as long as it is durable !

hmm i have a sephora traincase and i USED to really love it.. but it became such a hassle when i was in a hurry to go out and i had to take it out of its nook.. open it, close it and put it back! hehe. i love my handy dandy drawers now bec i can just pull out the items anytime i wish without taking sooo long! but if you're going to use it for travel etc etc.. then i suggest you go for it! :) its quite an investment! i still use my traincase but i store the makeup i dont use on a daily basis! :D
