Best train cases for makeup?

I have quite a lot of makeup and have been looking for a good train case to store and organize all of it. I bought the $92 one from Sephora last night and was SO excited for it, but once I opened it up I was disgusted with the quality. It's total a piece of crap that felt like it was going to fall apart any minute. Not my idea of a good use of $100 bucks. Does anyone have one they recommend? I've been reading online that Japonesque has a good (though somewhat small) one, and MAC does too but it is super expensive. TIA

yeah I would have to say MAC.. they're like heatproof and bulletproof kidding about the bulletproof part, but they are made well and great quality, but yes really expensive You can buy traincases for like $30-40 on ebay that have quality that's pretty similar to Sephora's.

I got this one a few years ago. I thought it was pretty decent quality. I still have it but I don't use it very often.

I've been looking for one too, but they are all so expensive! I just can't justify it.
Beth, if you ever decide to part with yours please let me know.

I got one like this from Target and it is awesome! it has a lot of compartments and they lift out so you can see everything all at once.

I use the Free Bonus gift train cases from Estee Lauder, they are huge, but the 2 most recent ones I got, have no organizers.
There are good quality cases from Samsonite that have lots of compartments and decent prices. Maybe vintage cases would work for you.

I have this one and it is just okay... Does not hold very much imo even though its big and bulky. It serves its purpose though

My boyfriend got me the MAC one for my birthday It's pretty awesome, though I think the flimsy Sephora one actually holds more.
