SOHO Beauty Cases Traincase Review

Looking for a cute, affordable traincase to store all your beauty needs? Then SOHO Beauty Cases is perfect for you!

SOHO Beauty Cases

Available in a variety of portable sizes, these traincases come in the cutest designs like zebra prints, polka dots, girly kisses to glittery and metallic pinks, your classic black and more. Prices are super affordable and range from $9.99 for the smallest size (5″ x 4″ x 4.75″) to $39.99 for the largest (11.75″ x 8.75″ x 9.5″).

The Square Medium, part of a Target Holiday collection, measures 9.5″ X 6.5″ X 6.75″ and comes in black with a snakeskin pattern. There are three tiers with two pull-out trays that can fit more than I need for a short trip with plenty of room left. The lock also comes with keys that I personally don’t care for, but it is a nice touch if you require added security.

The Petite ($9.99), which measures 6.5″ x 3.5″ x 4.25″, is a smaller version of the Square Medium, minus the trays and tiers. It can hold up to a foundation, a few eyeshadows, concealer, mascara, eyelash curler, eyeliner, blush and a couple of glosses, which is perfect for a sleepover or a weekend getaway.

Both cases are very light-weight and easy to carry around. While they may not be the sturdiest compared to more expensive brands, they do a very good job for the price you pay. I never have a problem closing them or with the trays bending or breaking. The locks also keep the cases shut really tight, so there is no need to worry about your makeup spilling everywhere even if you accidentally drop them.

Bottomline, these are a great deal at this price. I will definitely pick up a few more of the bigger ones during my next trip to Target.


The SOHO Beauty Cases are available at Target, Walmart and Bed, Bath and Beyond. You can also go to to check out the different styles and sizes.
