It’s a situation any Sephora shopper knows too well: you meticulously place each product you have listed on the “to buy” list on your phone into your basket, only to be tempted last-minute to throw in some miniature travel-sized products from the checkout line.
Besides being adorably cute and tiny, these products are usually cheaper than their full-size counterparts and are a great way to test whether or not you like a product before splurging on the full-size. And of course, you can use them for all your upcoming vacations and carry-on only getaways, as they’ll make it past security with no issue. Keep reading to find out which items we recommend that you definitely pick up on your next trip to Sephora.
- LIVING PROOF PERFECT HAIR DAY DRY SHAMPOO MINI
True fact: there’s nothing worse than being on vacation and not having time to wash your hair. Which is why this mini dry shampoo by Living Proof is an item you’ll be thankful you packed in your toiletry bag. Oh, and it smells amazing too.
- CAUDALIE BEAUTY ELIXIR MINI
Sure your friends and family are great, but Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir Mini is the ultimate travel companion. The lightweight mist is perfect for priming/setting makeup, and refreshing your makeup throughout the day to make it look like it was just applied.
- MAKE UP FOR EVER ULTRA HD MICROFINISHING LOOSE POWDER MINI
This finishing powder by Make Up For Ever has a cult following – and for good reason. It adds a sheer layer to help set your makeup flawlessly, and softens fine lines and pores in the process. Since the $44 full-sized version can be intimidating to a first-timer, we recommend trying out the mini version first to see if you like it (also 0.14 ounces is still going to last you a really long time).
Buy it: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder Mini, $24.00, at Sephora
- LAURA MERCIER TINTED MOISTURIZER MINI
Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer is an old faithful in the beauty community, as it gives lightweight, flawless coverage while providing SPF protection. And seriously, how cute is the travel size?!
- BECCA GLOW ON THE GO HIGHLIGHTER SET
This set lets you try two different formulas of Becca’s iconic “Opal” highlighter shade. Try mixing the liquid highlighter in with your foundation for an all-over glow, and then dabbing a bit of the pressed powder above your cheekbones and browbones for an even glowier effect.
- SEPHORA COLLECTION READY IN 5 EYE BRUSH SET
They may be little, but don’t discount them just yet: Sephora’s “Ready in 5” eye brush set has received stellar reviews online. The set also comes with a cute little pouch, making it extremely travel-friendly.
- NARS BLUSH/BRONZER DUO MINI
This mini Nars compact is a great way to try out their “Orgasm” blush and “Laguna” bronzer before committing to the full sizes. Which you are inevitably going to end up buying after trying this baby out.
- MAISON MARGIELA ‘REPLICA’ BEACH WALK ROLLERBALL
As we all know, rollerballs are extremely travel-friendly – which is why we’re grateful that Maison Margiela has bottled up their ‘Replica’ Beach Walk scent into one. It’s pretty much the perfect vacation scent if you ask us!
