Product Review: Juicy Loves Sephora Hard Train case

Juicy Loves Sephora Hard Train Case

There may come a time (Or many times) when there will be a very pretty (And expensive) something that maybe completely useless to you. I'm sure many people have seen this pretty little traincase on the Sephora website (Used to run for $348 USD now on sale for $261 USD).


Quality: 3/5
Price: 0/5

Now, I'll be honest. This product was not what I expected it to be, I've heard it was small but it's actually a fairly decent size for travel (10 x 6 x 8.5). It's a bit heavy it's not that big a deal. What did bother me about this train case was the quality though, I had expected it to be VERY high quality for the price ($355 CAD?!), the outside is covered with plastic and though there is fabric underneath the coating it's shiny and feels a bit cheap (Even the "leather"). The inside is quilted but it's just cloth, nothing special. There is one pocket in the back and 4 elastic straps on the sides, good for foundations and such. On the heart shaped mirror is printed "I am the fairest..." and the outside has the Juicy couture logo printed on the front.

Now I know a big factor for this economy is the price, is this product worth the price? Hells no! Honestly for this price I could have gone to MAC, bought myself a nice carry all case (with lots of dividers and stuff) and still have almost 100 bucks left in my pocket (This was a gift from my hunny for our anniversary though <3).>

ONE THING ABOUT THIS TRAINCASE, I spent half an hour trying to figure out how to open it and I've noticed one or two reviews on Sephora saying that it was "broken" and I'll tell you now it's not, nor is it crappy quality, the lock is actually one of the better qualitys and if you push the left side nob that has no use to the right while the case is unlocked it will pop open no problem. Yeah, I felt pretty stupid too.
