So I don’t know about you guys but a lot of my makeup is really BULKY. As in it takes up way too much space in my purse and even more-so when I’m traveling! Well, when I came across this company called STOWAWAY COSMETICS who boasted travel-size, compact cosmetics I was definitely intrigued. BUT being that I have my makeup favorites I was also extremely skeptical about how these would stack-up to what I’m currently using but I wanted to give it a shot!
When my box arrived I was definitely impressed! The packaging was adorable. And as you guys know, I’m a sucker for packaging. I love the clean, crisp minimalistic design. And true to their word, the size of everything was cute and compact!
Up first is the CREASELESS CONCEALER. I received it in “light” which was a little too light for me and I think I’ll need to “color up” for my next order. The coverage was incredible though. It didn’t feel too heavy, my skin didn’t feel greasy, it went on really smooth – I was impressed!Next up is the CHEEK & LIP ROUGE in the Burnt Rose color. It is GORGEOUS and I loved that it was a creme, because let’s be honest when you’re on the go and you need to re-apply your blush a powder just isn’t very practical. Next up is the CREME LIPSTICK in Scarlet. Y’all know I’m a sucker for a good red and this one does not disappoint. It’s definitely creamy, didn’t dry out my lips, but stayed on pretty strong throughout the day. Plus, you can beat it’s compact sizing! Eyeliner, one of my favorites and this EFFORTLESS EYELINER in Jet (black) was perfect. The pencil is fantastic, it goes on nice and smooth and the color is dark and creamy! Again, the sizing is perfect. Not too small that it’s hard to apply but small enough that it sneaks into your bag with ease. This DEFINED VOLUME MASCARA is fantastic! I was using it for a month before I got my eyelash extensions put on (you don’t need mascara when you have eyelash extensions) and I was a big fan. The brush really helped
Who doesn’t love a beauty balm cream? This RADIANT COMPLEXION BB CREAM in medium is amazing. I actually use my BB Creams as a make-up primer and this one was fantastic as well. The color was perfect and great to wear as a make-up base or alone!
All in all guys, I definitely recommend Stowaway Cosmetics! Not only from a cute, compact, travel-friendly make-up perspective but just from an all-around good quality make-up perspective as well! I definitely recommend checking them out! They also have some really adorable HOLIDAY GIFT PACKAGES, too! ANDDDD you can get 20% off with code JENNRICHARDSON on checkout!
