Sephora Mini's to Try

When checking out at Sephora I'm always letting others get in front of me because I spend way too much time perusing the aisle of the mini products! In fact, most of my makeup right now is mini sized and I don't mind it one bit. I'm able to try out new products and less of it goes to waste because I end up using all of it. I'm also able to get more higher end products without the guilt of spending a fortune on them! Here are some of my tried and true favorite Sephora Mini's as well as some others I can't wait to try!
  • Summer Friday's Jetset Mask || This moisturizer / mask is a holy grail item for me! It's pricey at $25 for the small tube, but so worth the price. It works wonder at keeping your skin hydrated and I have one in my makeup arsenal at all time!
  • Fenty Beauty Instant Retouch Primer || This primer from Fenty Beauty is the first thing I've tried from the makeup brand but it wont be my last. It goes on silky smooth, doesn't have any weird smells and my makeup goes on flawlessly after! Definitely going to be a repurchase for me!
  • Better Than Sex Mascara || I love mascara and often have three or four tubes that I'm using at a time. The one that I always make sure to have is Too Faced Better Than Sex. The smaller tube doesn't dry out and is used up in a few short months versus having to throw a half used tube out after 3 months, which is the desired shelf life of mascara.
  • Cover FX setting powder || It took me a solid 3 years to get through my last setting powder so wanting to try something new, I went for the Cover FX setting powder which does a really great job especially with setting concealer - no cakiness over her! 
  • Urban Decay Heat Petite Palette || This is one of my most used mini palettes! Super easy to travel with and perfect for fall / winter looks. One I'd really like to try next is the HUDA Beauty palette in Mauve. 
  • Kiehls Avocado Eye Cream || One of the best eye creams out there! A little goes a long way, so even though it's pricey, you'll have this for a good long while! It doesn't have a weird smell and you can absolutely see a difference with fine lines after repeated use!
  • Watermelon Moisturizer || My friend got me the larger one as a birthday gift and once it ran out, I bought the smaller one to have. It's so lightweight and perfect to slather on for your nighttime routine before bed. 
  • Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks || These are my favorite eye shadow sticks and are very long wearing as well as pigmented. This is a new mini collection that includes 3 of my go to colors! Definitely an add to cart item for me! 
  • Bite Beauty Mini Lipstick Set || I'm lipstick obsessed and pretty sure I get a new one every two weeks and then never get to fully use them. When I can, I opt for mini sets and Bite Beauty always has my favorite colors. This is one of my favorite gifts to get!
  • Too Faced Concealer || I have the full size version of this concealer and if I could, I'd go back and get the mini, only because I know it'll take me forever to get through it all. It can be used as foundation as well, but because it's super thick, I like it as a concealer. If you're a fan of shape tape by Tarte, this is a nice alternative. I also really like the doe foot applicator. 

Would you rather a full size or mini size product? Any favorite from Sephora right now?

  4. I'm obssessed with looking at everything in the Sephora checkout line too! The Bite Beauty mini lipsticks are my go-to especially around the holiday season because they are always fabulous colors. I like that mini naked palette too!

  8. I LOVE mini lipsticks! I never go through a whole tube, so it's so fun to change it up all the time...and they fit in clutches better. Bare Minerals does a mini holiday pack that is AMAZING!

  11. I've heard so many good things about that concealer - I might have to pick up the mini version to try for myself!

  12. These are great picks. I love the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks and my daughter swears by the Better Than Sex Mascara.

  13. I forever scoop up the minis! I only use high end mini mascaras. I refuse to pay $25+ for a tube I know will get thrown away half full. Better Than Sex is always in my drawer for sure. Same with the setting powders (I have a Kat Von D one right now that I am enjoying.) I love the drunk elephant baby facial mini. Perfect size! I need to get the naked heat petite!

  16. I love trying minis since I usually never finish a whole bottle of something. Definitely have to check some of these out!

  17. I'm intrigued by the Laura Mercier sticks. I really need to go in and get a complete makeover and try some new products. Everything I have is pretty stagnant (and probably well outside the wear date, lol). I just find the whole idea of choosing beauty products so intimidating. The minis really are a great place to start.
