My new amazing traincase!

Hi Bellas,

First all I just want to say, "We did it!" Last night's Presidential election marked history. Remember this day so that we can one share it with our grandchildren. Don't lose sight of your passion and initiative with politics and to exercise your right to vote. "Yes we can!"

Back to the post!

Ever since my first youtube video on my traincase I received dozens of emails and youtube messages on where they could purchase one like it. Unfortunately, I had purchased mine from an Ebay Seller...the kind that sells items for random people. There weren't any other traincases like mine that I could find anywhere on the internet. However, when people would ask me about it, I would always refer them to This is the best site for finding affordable, quality traincases.

For the longest time, I've been wanting to upgrade my traincase. When I do large weddings and fashion shows my single layer traincase was getting harder to pack with the key essentials. You guys know I love to be prepared! It's also a lot quicker to clean up after gigs when you have a little extra breathing room in your traincase. I find myself struggling to fit everything like lego pieces in my kit when I'm done...and i'm not always successful!

I had been eyeing this traincase for months! It's the Pro Rollng Black Makeup Train Case TS-36 for $169.95. It's also the best selling traincase on the website!

Here's what the website has to say about it:

Pro Aluminum Makeup Case Black TS-36

The ultimate professional makeup case kit. It has compartments and trays that are convenient and endless. It has trays that you can pull up and out of the base to hold brushes or pencils. A deep bottom big enough to hold your bottles and palettes. In line skate wheels for easy mobility. This case is a must have for the professional makeup artist.2 Cases in 1High quality black aluminum textured finishReinforced steel corners for extra durabilityTelescopic handle with in-line skate wheelsExtra lid included Vinyl lined interior for easy cleaningHeavy duty ergonomic locks with dual keysAdjustable tray dividers

Removable tray w/ dividers in lower storage well-13.5" L x 8.75" W x 4" H Bottom Portion of Case - 14.25" L x 9.5" W x 17.5" H Top Portion of Case - 14.25" L x 9.5" W x 10.5" H Top Tray on Left Side - 12.5" L x 4.25" W x 3.25" H Top Trays (2) on Right Side - 12.5" L x 4.25" W x 1.5'' H each Top Portion Lower Compartment - 12.5" L x 4.25" W x 6" H Hollow Space in Bottom Compartment - 14"L x 9" W x 11" H Overall Case Dimension - 14 1/4" Lx 9 1/2"W x 28"H

Check out what this traincase really looks like in my youtube video. I even packed it to show you how much you can fit inside.

The traincase has a lot of qualities that I like:

1) It is a rolling traincase. This means, you can pull it like a luggage. This is huge for me because makeup gets really heavy...the traincase alone is pretty sizeable. A rolling traincase is essential to saving your back and making travel much easier.

2) I like how the traincase is black. The edges are reinforced with silver metal to keep it sturdy. I think black hides dirt and scratches better than silver. Plus, it matches my other traincase! It's like a little luggage set :)

3) The traincase is huge! As you can see in the picture, it has two stacking parts. The top can be used on its own and is the typical traincase with sliding out trays that are tiered. It also has a padded strap so you can carry it on your shoulder. The bottom piece has a tray with sections that can be removed, and then the bottom part is very deep...big enough to hold hair products, an airbrush compressor or bottles of makeup remover and alcohol. It also has its own cover so you can just use this bottom rolling section if you want.

If you are running out of space for your makeup (hello makeup addicts) or like me, want a larger traincase for big gigs...this is the best traincase for you. The website also has this traincase in silver, pink, and burgundy. I spent several hours researching other traincases on the internet, and this is the cheapest and most legit of them all. Also, there's free shipping! That alone saves you at least $30. The site also has multiple other traincases of different sizes and colors for you to check out.

On top of it, I also worked out a special deal for you guys because I love you so much.

Makeup By RenRen readers can purchase a traincase at a 10% discount if you type in the code RENREN.

That means you'd get this traincase for $152.96 including shipping! If you've done any type of traincase research you know that this is a steal.

Have fun shopping!

great deal! you are awesome. i've seen ones that are that tall, never looked inside though. never imagined that i'd need one LOL!

i've been meaning to show you mine cuz you asked a while back, but it's so pitiful. LOL! my gigs are pretty small so my case has been sufficient, but it would be nice to have an upgrade.

I think I'm going to convince my sister to get me a traincase for all of my makeup. I had one of those old-school soft-sided traincases (with just a top and bottom section), and its already overflowing - I've had to stash my non-regular makeup into travel cases all over my bathroom!

I LOVE this traincase. I bought the pink croc skin one a few months ago and it holds so much!

Hey just discovered your site and your videos are great! Learned a lot from them thanks so much! A question though: can you carry this traincase if you cannot wheel it (eg. you are in someone's house or going up the stairs). Just wondering if it's realistic to be hand carried for a short period of time at all. Also, is the handle for the cover of the bottom compartment sturdy enough to be carried for a short period of time again? I'm definitely wanting to expand my train case but not sure if I can carry this one around. Thanks so much!
