Most Helpful Positive Review Survived flying off a moving car
I have all of my everyday, important to me, make up in this case. I bought this in my local ulta store and was SOO excited and felt like I was back in my childhood when I seen them in the isle. (Side note, the color choice in my store was this or the classic coral and blue.. just seen online they have blue and purple I would have picked that color option over this one but the rose gold is still sickening and matched a lot of my other makeup related cases)
Writing this, I've had the case for about three weeks now and I hadn't needed to take it with me until recently. I live at the top of a hill with a large S curve on it before you get to the bottom of the hill. Well, I was taking my kids to my moms house for an overnight stay and we have a little mustang, so I was trying to organize everything in and planned on putting my make up in the trunk so the kids couldn't get into it while I was driving. I put the case on top of the car to help buckle the kids in and they are not listening so I'm getting frustrated (#momlife what's new? Nothing.) and forget about the make up.
I get in the car, my husband in the passenger seat, back out of the driveway, go down the hill around the S curve and stop at the stop sign.. went to turn left and I hear my make up scatter across the road. I could have died I was so mad I was so worried about the mirror and my pans of blush and highlighters, I just instantly stopped and pulled over, put cautions on, parked, and ran to my makeups rescue.
Let me tell you, it's been a day and a half since this happened and I'm still shook that nothing broke at all. Just some scratches on the corners of the case where it hit the road.
Thank goodness for this case!! Saved me a lot of money with it's sturdy-ness. Also after the flying lesson it took I realized the mirror has a lock hinge on the right side of it..this case has lots of room for all different size items large enough for several pallets and most importantly keeps things safe for the price!
Most Helpful Critical Review Will do for now
I purchased this as a gift for my soon to be 13 year old. The rose gold color of picture enticed me but what I received is not the same. The color I received is much more dull. The lid and bottom don't fit tightly. There were thumbprints all over the interior mirror. It definitely feels cheaper than the ones I had back in the day. However, it will do for now until I find a better replacement.

My daughter has all her makeup organized in the multiple compartments.
Absolutely would buy this again

This product was bought for a 9 year old girl. She loved it with the stuff put inside.
Great makeup organizer
I from USA
This fits all the makeup I use and my palettes. It's bigger than I thought and feels durable. I had a caboodles case as a kid and loved it. The mirror is huge. I'm happy with this purchase. It leans more pink than rose gold but I still love it. It's been sold out for awhile I'm glad I could jump on it when it came back in stock.
A little disappointed
Sarah from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
I was so excited to get this that I practically tore the box to shreds today. My first one in the 90's was amazing and built with quality. This seems flimsy, the mirror is falling out, I either need to super glue it or just return it. Also, the front snap isn't sparkly, it's a crooked gold sticker that is peeling. Overall, it will achieve what I bought it for but it's a little disappointing expecting something that you don't receive.
Love it !

It is a great purchase for organisation of makeup and it's great if you always wanna bring your makeup with you anywhere for travel.

Mine is missing the smaller tray in the upper compartment and the mirror is loose. For the price, it's decent but I'm not counting on it to last long.
Center decal is NOT what's pictured!!
S. Ferrell from Murfreesboro, TN
This product is exactly how I remember my old one when I was a teenager! However, the center decal on the "button" is not what's pictured. It's not the pretty sparkly sticker. It is a "mirrored" looking sticker and looks horrible!
I would buy this again
Shannon from Green Brook, NJ
I store my makeup in the container
Just like I remember!
Andrea from New York
Squeeeee! I am so happy to have one of these makeup cases again! I got my first one (it was dark purple and light green) in 1992 when I was a fifteen year old sophomore in HS and used it all the way into my mid-20's, but then the clasp broke and it wouldn't stay shut when I needed to go away overnight or on vacation, so sadly I got rid of it. For the last twenty years I've gone through dozens of makeup bags, but you just can't compare a bag to one of these. They don't have all the compartments, you have to rummage through them to find anything, and lastly they get dirty from the makeup and don't ever wash that well. This makeup case solves all of those problems. Recently, I ordered a Caboodle in plain pink for my tween daughter for Christmas and when it arrived, I realized just how much I missed my old one! I was a little reluctant to get the rose gold because of some of the negative reviews, but mine arrived in perfect condition. The color is a beautiful pearlized dusty pink (a great color for those of us who may be of, uh, a more sophisticated age) and the closure is metallic gold. There are no scratches and it seems just as sturdy as the original from what I can remember. It even has the spot on the lid where you used to be able to order a personalized name plate. I'm going to hop onto their site and see if they still have them and if I can get one for my daughter's! I hope she loves her's as much as I love mine!

I never knew I was missing out until I bought this right before taking a long road trip, and found myself needing something larger than just my cosmetic bag. This fit all of my brushes, some eyeshadow pallets, blush, several lipsticks and lip liners, bronzer, etc, etc, etc. I love the separate compartments, and having a mirror in case I needed it. It's sturdy and fits everything I need without being too large.
Brings Back Memories
TinLiz from Kentucky
i purchased this for my granddaughter for Christmas. My daughter(not her mom) had a Caboodle when she was a teenager and loved it.
Nice for the price!
Lena from Georgia
Nice basic train case for how inexpensive it is. I have had mine for almost 2 years, used to store my regularly used makeup and tools and it is still sturdy and holding up. I am upgrading soon for something bigger and trendier but overall I loved my purchase for the price!
did not come as described
kerri from montana
came with bumps and scrapes, extra plastic from when it was molded, no sparkles just some cheap, plain gold stickers slapped on, the mirror is barely held in with a foam sticker, smells like burn or melted plastic, doesn't lock or click closed very well, doesn't like to open.
I was So excited for this and then it came. 100% let down and disappointed. The only reason I gave it as many stars as I did was because it came when it said it would and all the parts are there.
2/10 would not recommend to anyone.
I bought them for gifts
Terry from Rancho Cucamonga
I actually have to buy another for myself, I gave them for gifts, I liked the product except for the mirrors were loose on both.
Very nice color
Jays mom from Orlando, FL
I bought this as a gift for my 14 year old niece. She loved the color and all the compartments. It's a very nice rose gold.

Sarah from Chicago
I read previous comments saying it didn't arrive as pictured. I ordered anyway hoping it would come as shown. The button on the clasp is not the same as pictured, and was put on crooked and off center. Disappointed in the product.
Tarabug79 from Lumberton, MS
I haven't had a caboodle since the 90s, so I'm reliving my younger days with this cute caboodle! I love the rose gold color and it holds my used makeup really well! Good quality!
Perfect for all my make up!
Michelle from Alexandria
Perfect size and color!
Not as advertised
Alex from Chattanooga, TN
I bought this twice thinking I had bought the wrong one because the clasp in the middle was an irredescent light gold and not the pink sparkles as advertised. It also looked to be a lighter color.
BKbeauty from VA
This carrier does not have a lot of space but it is durable.
Love it !
Lauren from CT
I read the negative reviews about this rose gold caboodle but I totally disagree! The color is gorgeous and mine has a sparkly handle/clasp. Also the quality is great so I don't understand what all the bad reviews are about. I just ordered the mini rose gold caboodle and I can't wait !
Angel from Youngstown, Oh.
I had one when I was a girl. So I wanted my 5 year old to have many of the same memories. Plus its a great place for her to store her nail polishes and "makeup" lol. She absolutely loves it!!
Love my rose gold Caboodle
Yanikee from Newport News,Virginia
I bought this super cute Caboodle in the store last year and what catches my attention is the sparkly handle. It's definitely perfect for storing not only my makeup, but for my skincare stuff as well.
Sarah from Virginia
I love that they have extra compartments for brushes and what not but it's kind of like playing tetris to get everything to fit
