I’m noticing a major trend in the cosmetic gift giving selection this year. That’d trend would be minis!
I mean we obviously love full size products but hell don’t we love mini versions that we can tuck in our purses and makeup bags for touch ups here and there and everywhere?
Urban Decay has graced us with it’s mini 24/7 Kit which you can check out by clicking here.
Benefit has it’s new Powder Pop! palette available which contains mini versions of it’s popular powder line. You can droll over it by clicking here.
Stila has a mini kit of it’s lipglazes which I purchased yesterday! You can see my first impression here.
And now some more minis that are popping up at Sephora for the Holiday Season! Let’s have a look.
Napoleon Perdis Lip Couture Set for $35
Ok so these might not qualify for mini but I’m making the big assumption these aren’t the big sizes.
Next on our menu the Bare Escentuals Buxom Babes Lip Polish Set for $28
Next on our list of minis would be the Bourjois Paris Kisses From Paris Set for $18
A cocktail of lipglosses for you! Lorac Mini Mini Mocktail Bar for $25
The best deal yet (I believe this might be full size but don’t quote me on that) would be the Smashbox Light Speed Lip Gloss Collection for $29!
Tarte has a new trio of cheek stains as well which are $30 and entitled We Wish You Happiness Mini Cheekstain Set. This isn’t very new because Tarte has these as normal catalog items and plus they offer them almost every holiday season however from year to year the case they come in changes which is fun!
Minis aren’t new to Sugar Cosmetics but they always have some of the cutest minis I’ve come across This one is called Glitterati and has glitter on one end a light matching cream base on the other! The set is $32.
So..what’s so great about minis anyway? Well minis are great for toting around for touch ups plus they are so lightweight that they fit in the smallest of places which makes for easy storage! You also get a slew of variety and bang for your buck by purchasing these sets! It’s such a great way to try several items in one cute kit.
Get shopping Grab some of these as gifts while you’re at it!
I’m purchasing two items for a friend from Sephora today and since I’m diseased I can’t just purchase her items I have to go ahead and get a million items for myself!
I’ve limited myself and decided I’d only purchase one single item! Go on…tell me how proud you are of me!
I really don’t need a damn thing at the moment plus I want to save some cash for the holiday collections that should be cropping up very soon (Plus Alexander McQueen on Thursday) however one item did catch my eye.
Stila’s Gift of Glaze caught my fancy and for $28 I’ve decided I can’t live without it (don’t you love my inner drama queen?)!
Stila’s Gift of Glaze
I really enjoy the lip glazes and I understand why they are such a popular, best selling item! And hey these are 5 for $28 that’s like $6 per a gloss when you add taxes and such. Not bad.
The Muse has scored a deal!
Great gift set for yourself or to spoil a friend.
The Gift of Glaze is currently up and available for purchase at Sephora.
Sephora is slowly updating it’s site on the sly with the winter collection line ups!
Today the Muse happened upon some of Stila’s Winter Collection the Blanc & Noire palettes while wandering around on Sephora’s website.
Mmmmm…I believe there is more to the line but it hasn’t yet been added at Sephora…so far I’m not that thrilled with these which is a relief because that leaves me extra money for another Holiday Collection
How about you?
