While there are plenty of beauty products that we go through by the bucketload and buy in bulk — shampoo & sunscreen, we’re looking at you! — we can’t deny the fact that pint-sized products actually own our hearts. They’re just so darn cute! Beauty minis aren’t just adorable, though; they’re practical, too. Smaller sizes of everything from masks to mascara mean you can travel lighter, easily carry must-haves in your purse for touch-ups, and — perhaps most importantly — try out trendy or spendy items for a fraction of the full-size price. (It’s so much less painful to discover that a lip color/moisturizer/serum/what have you isn’t right for your skin when it cost $15 instead of $50, and there’s only a little left to use.)
Another benefit to beauty minis? They make excellent gifts — and right now Sephora has loads of cute travel-size gift sets available to give to the beauty-lover in your life, from skincare sets to makeup mixes. Even better: Many of these beauty minis sets are on sale right now, and if you’re a Sephora Insider, you can get 20 percent off a one-time purchase from now through Dec. 12 — making them adorable and more affordable. So what are you waiting for? Keep reading for the cutest little beauty goodies around.
