4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully presented, 25 Jan 2009
This review is from: Beauty-Boxes Valene Rose Cosmetics and Make-up Beauty Case (Personal Care)
This make up case comes to you extremely well packed. No doubt due to the easily dented nature of aluminium and protection against gorillas in the postal system. No less than three cardboard boxes including the outer Amazon one! (A pity then that the same couldn't have been said for the appalling way my order for £600 worth of VCR/DVD recorder was packed which I immediately returned to Amazon for refund as it was damaged).
Product Features are somewhat misleading though not deliberately so, I think;

* Stylish design, absolutely!
* Strong chrome hinges, yes
* Lockable catch, prevents other's from using your stuff but not a determined thief/sister etc
* Soft lined internal compartments, slightly coarse but attractive black nylon lining
* Deep internal drawer, no drawer. Non removable spacious lower compartment for bottles and hairbrushes
* Make up case
* Cosmetic case
* Nail accessories
These last three do not exist as separate items. I can only think the description meant storage compartments for these items.

My only major niggle? The box we received had a detached cantilever which swings the upper trays in or out as you open and close the case. It had never actually been attached as the locking nylon washer that holds the lever in place was still on its fixing rivet. It was an easy fix of half a minute or so but may have spoilt someone's surprise had it been sent directly as a gift to a friend. Not wanting to finish on a negative point I will say that the rest of the box is so beautifully crafted that I can only assume that this error is completely untypical of this manufacturer. Inside you will find two keys, carbon/silica gel, inspection slip, and a small catalogue of some of the other equally impressive products by Beauty Boxes.com which also includes a £5 off voucher towards a future purchase from their website.

It's real value for money when compared to plastic items you find in bargain stores which start at £15. It packs away a lot of otherwise fiddly stuff for its size and is comfortable to carry thanks to its slightly oversized handle. It also looks expensive, which is important for some.
Although these boxes are available in black/silver, pink/silver and all aluminium, I chose the red one as it's the only one where the order is stocked and fulfilled by Amazon and I had some Amazon vouchers to play with!

I had the same problem with the levers for the upper compartments, they don't seem to swing up and out properly and are crooked. How exactly did you fix this?
