My Very First Makeup Traincase

First Traincase!!!


Hi lovelies! My aunt from NYC gave me money for a makeup traincase. I told her about my dilemma with regard the coming wedding gig and she asked me to get a traincase!! weeehh... I asked Camille of Littlebeautybag where she bought her traincase. I do not know if we bought at the exact same place though.. I saw a big one with a beautiful cover but when I looked inside it was really small. My palettes could hardly fit. There was also this huge leather bag which looks like a big lunch box which I wanted too but my mom told this looks more sleek. 


Can you guess how much this cost me?? hihi
Only 1200 pesos.. Nice bargain right?
I was supposed to buy online but I was not into the velvet lining.
My mom chose silver. I really wanted the black one.. Well.. Mothers know best right.. SO. I followed her. 
It has lock and key.. I will not use it though because I might lose the key and that will be very unfortunate!


This traincase has four layers. 
I love the fact that it has the plastic lining for easy cleaning.I hope you could see it in the picture.

My humble makeup collection.
YAY!! I only keep a few products and already threw and gave away a lot.
I do not think you need a lot of makeup products which all have the same shades only  different brands. That's clutter!
What is important is that you know how to make your products work.
The compartments are really roomy. 
I will add more lipsticks soon. I bought a few more from ebay..
I also need to figure out where to place my brushes.. Any suggestions?
The layered compartments are made of wood.
Now, my makeup looks so organized.
Thank you Tita!!!Love you much!

  3. Love it! it's so pretty and organized, great job. and you are very right, you don't need a lot of make up products. You just need to know how to work with it. sometimes its easy to fall into wanting to collect, but then you realize you do have it in the same color in different brands. >_<; good luck on your makeup wedding gig, hope to see a post on it.
