It's like a Canal Street Louie- you're not fooling anyone.
The case has a nice finish and the interior is lined with a thin leather like paper which is nice so you can wipe the case down if needed but that's about it when it comes to good things to say about this case.
I received the case yesterday. The box was so heavy I could hardly lift it which was already a red flag. the case itself had to be about 30-40 pounds easy and that's the empty case. I can't imagine how heavy it would be when it's filled. I'm sure some of you are thinking but it's on wheels so why is that a big deal? My response to that is if you ever have to carry the case up stairs, good luck.
When I took it out of the box, immediately I noticed the top was dipped and the French doors on the bottom were not properly aligned. When I took the case apart to inspect further, I could see the glue that held the liner to the case separating (see photo). This isn't just a sign of poor quality, it's a sign of bad design. Because the top detaches and can be used as a separate case, when you carry the case by the handle glue does not provide the proper support- that is why it's separating.
The expandable trays in the upper case are also extremely flimsy and the metal that connects the trays are easily bendable which is a problem because the trays don't glide to expand smoothly.
If you're looking for something expensive, massive, looks good but will fall apart and provides no functionality then this is the case for you. If you're looking for a quality case- you will be disappointed.

My Favorite of all Makeup Cases!
I have several makeup kits and luggage to travel with. I am always searching for the most convenient way to travel and work out of my luggage. I LOVE this piece!! It really is at a decent height for me to work out of. The doors below have drawers inside that store plenty of space for me to store thing in and work out of. It is the easiest of 3 other kits that I have bought from other makeup shows. This is also easy at work to just move around. I am a hairstylist also, and I don't want to just leave my makeup everywhere. I like to keep organized and pack up quickly to store away. It also locks!
The only thing I feel that I have to be careful with are the bottom doors. They are a lighter weight material. I am very careful with them. Other than that, I just can't be more excited about it! It also has a mirror that will slide up. This works great for pageants or dance recitals when girls need to check themselves out before heading out on stage!
This is definitely one of " my favorite things " !!!

Pretty, but not practical for air travel
By Taylor Dodson
Got this as a gift for my wife. As other reviewers have noted it is really heavy empty, we didn't even load it up, with all compartments filled can only imagine how unmanageable this would be to actually use for travel. something that would make this case better is if the top could be detached and both pieces still be used (IE have the top case be your carry-on for the cosmetics you can't leave up to airlines mishandling or losing on a trip).
It looks cool, just not practical for our use of frequent air trips. I couldn't see how everything would get jumbled in the main compartments if the case was turned upside down or sideways and doubt it would have handled even one trip through a baggage claim carousel.
