Like Daughter, So Shall Go Her Mother!
Travel-sized beauty products are perfect for jet-setting, I wouldn’t argue that. They’re also great for toting around in your totes (laugh, please, I bet you). But I have another reason to love them. It’s because I can get my beauty fix in smaller ‘portions’ that I use up and can throw away. You see, I have a problem – I tend to hold onto makeup past when you’re supposed to throw it out (you know how it goes – such and such expires in x amount of months, blah blah blah), and that’s not good. But I hate the thought of throwing out something! Tell me you can relate?!
This is where these smaller-sized products are a handy device that literally relieves my soul! Or, something. What’s amazing is that my mother is going on a trip to visit her sister (my aunt, who happens to make the most delicious blueberry muffins…Mmm…) and I can score brownie points with her by sending to her a package of plane-approved beauty she can take along. So really, this isn’t selfish shopping!
Something I will buy for me is the Stella Eau de Parfum Roll-On ($16.00) from Sephora. It’s the perfect size to put in any purse, or even in my top desk drawer to easily apply. The price is very friendly-looking, too. I’ve never owned this fragrance before, but I’ve tried it on so many times I’m almost positive I’ll love it. The pro is that if for some reason I don’t like Stella, I haven’t committed a ton of cash to the purchase.
Update: Lola saw this post and is ordering the Essie Fall 2008 Mini Pack right away. Copycat! Kidding, kidding.
