Caboodles Pro Silver Ribbed Makeup Train Case

I got this for $20 at Walmart almost 10 years ago and it's still in really good shape. It fits my entire makeup collection in it and it's a lot sturdier than the old, plastic Caboodles cases of the 90's. It's completely full right now. In the four drawers I have eye shadows (top drawer on one side), lip glosses (top drawer on the other side), lip balms and lipsticks (the drawer under the lipsticks) and then the drawer under the eye shadows has my mascaras, brushes, eye liners and tweezers. The big compartment is perfect for holding my palettes, cotton balls and hair stuff. If it ever broke, I would definitely buy anther one to replace it. I love this case!

The caboodle I own is identical to the one in the picture. I don't have much space in my bathroom to store makeup (minimal drawers and minimal counter space and really no room to store things at my desk or turn it into a vanity) so I got it thinking it would be the perfect solution. It does not save space at all! And it is too bulky to store makeup or travel with. If you're a serious makeup artist, you'll most likely have high quality cases to take your makeup in. not a caboodle. The trays are too small to fit a lot of product! I can seriously only fit a 3 bronzers max in one of the trays. It is hard to see all my makeup in the overlapping trays and just a huge headache. It's not an efficient way to store product! The square trays are a horrible idea bc they aren't big enough for product I am back to storing my makeup in those clear, countertop rubbermaid drawers and a big vera bradley makeup bag. In theory this would've been great, but honestly it's not an efficient way to store makeup. Perhaps the caboodle that is slightly smaller and the rectangle trays open up to rest in the doors would have been better and more compact, but I'm not going to try that one bc I know I won't be thrilled with it.

I love my Caboodle! It looks good & stores my favourite & most frequently used cosmetics. I'm glad I got one; like most of you, when I was younger, I had an old/vintage/classic Caboodle. Now that I'm in my twenties & wear a lot more makeup, I have an Ultimate Train Case—Lovestruck. Description: six cantilever trays, spacious interior storage, two locking latches with keys, carrying handle. Dimensions: 11.75" x 8" x 10.25". Caboodles cost $10 to $40 depending on which case you buy. Mine was ~$20. Pro: It's stylish & in truth convenient. If you're like me & have enough makeup to give everyone in town a makeover, I definitely recommend having one or two of these in your home! It has a carrying handle so if you're an actual makeup artist, that's a plus. The case opens down the middle to display six useful storage trays. The best thing about it, obviously, is all the organization & convenience it offers. The bottom of the Caboodle is spacious as well. These are also easy to clean. A damp cloth will clean any leaks or spills. I use baby wipes. Con: While the one I have is one of the "better" ones because it has more trays than others, it's fragile. In less than a year, it started to give out; it definitely could be sturdier. The silver lining (lol!) of mine split & is peeling. The glue not holding up for a year infuriates me because I have read that some of you have the same Caboodle from 5 years ago! In fear of further damage, I don't carry or move it around too much. It's just organizes & de-clutters the vanity space in my bedroom. The Caboodle itself is 5 lipsticks, but because of how fragile it is—& I've read other reviews complaining of the same thing—it'll be 4. I'm not willing to buy a sturdier one with fewer trays because I have far too much makeup to sacrifice space for the quality I should already be bettering... unless I see one on sale.
