High-End Minis You Can—And Should—Test Out

High-End Minis You Can—And Should—Test Out

I’m gearing up for some travel in the next few weeks. So, naturally, I’ve had a great time looking through the minis and travel-sized products at my favorite place, Sephora!

The section right by the register has always been a "must" for me, because on a college student budget I need to make sure that I really love a high-end product before I commit to the full size.

Here are my top 3 high-end minis that you can try out for yourself to see if they’re really worth the hype!   

1. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

This powder has an insane cult-like following. But even with the hype, I’ve always been hesitant to commit to a $40-ish powder. It’s translucent...what could possibly be so special?!

Well, if you’re a skeptic like I am, make sure to snag the travel sized mini of this beloved powder first. If you’re light handed with your powder like I am, this mini should still last you quite a while and you can see if this powder is the holy grail of all powders.

2. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter

I mentioned this kit before (around the holidays) and I still can’t say enough great things about this kit. Each kit comes with a powder and liquid mini highlighter and it’s honestly the perfect size. 

I don’t think I would ever use up the full-size Becca highlighters and I was able to test out both types of formula.  I totally prefer the powder highlighter with my skin. Opal Glow on the Go Kit is my absolute favorite and I’ve used the mini every day for months and months. 

3. Marc Jacobs Beauty Beauty On The Fly Eye Kit

I ADORE Marc Jacobs Beauty. I got my first Marc Jacobs product as a Sephora birthday gift and it was a mini red Marc Jacobs Beauty lipstick and I wore it All. The. Time. The formula was total perfection. 

You could really win with any of their mini sets, but the one I am most obsessed with is the Beauty On The Fly Eye Kit.

This tip totally applies to any mascara or mini eyeliner set, by the way. The Sephora Favorites Lashstash to Go Kit offers 5 different mini mascaras from 5 different brands; you even get a voucher for a full size of your favorite!

Give them a try when you get a chance!
