Miniature Beauty Products

I love miniature sized products, who doesn't right? The fact that these iddy biddy little products are not only fabulous for travelling, but also gives you a chance to try out some products. The worst is when you have purchased a full sized product and ended up not liking it.

When i was in New York, i was in awe of the caddies beside the tills, which had an endless amount of miniature products from skincare, to nails, to makeup. I find that here in the UK, the only way to get pocket sized products is either from gift with purchase, or if a sales assistant is generous enough to give you a couple of free samples. Nonetheless, in New York they were super generous with samples, but you also had the option to purchase the travel size product from Sephora and Ulta.

The other way to try out new products is when you receive a deluxe travel size with a full sized product. The Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer came with the Lorac Pro Palette, and i am eager to see how it compares to my other eye primers from Tarte and Urban Decay.

I was fortunate enough to be given the following minis and you can see that these are pretty generous sizes, and will be perfect for popping into my travel bag.

  • Tarte Maracuja Oil
  • Buxom Full Bodied Lip Gloss (Katie)
  • Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Natural (N9)
  • Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara
  • Benefit Pore Professional

Do you have any miniature products?

  1. how do you find tarte maracuja oil?

  2. I feel the same way, we (UK) should be given the option of trial sizes especially with the high end stuff. SpaceNK i find are quite generous in giving samples. A good way of getting samples is subscribing to a beauty box which is what I did but i'm all sampled out now. Fab post as always xxx

  3. Out of these I have only tried the Porefessional - which I'm still on the fence about. Would love to see an in depth review because I really trust your opinion!
