The only flaw in this is the second tray doesn't seem to hold my double eye shadow, but I'm perfectly fine with that because it fits great in the bottom with my brushes and other larger items. I'm very pleased with this case. My fiance calls it my tool box. It's a great buy.." — Amber maddux, Amazon Reviewer
