They say good things come in small packages and, in this instance, they’re spot on. A pretty little fuscia pink noodle box landed on my desk recently, which I eagerly opened expecting it to be jam-packed with lollies or chocolates. There were no chocolates however, it was stuffed full of sweet delights of the cosmetic kind – an array of brightly-coloured mini make-up marvels.
I have to admit I’m a bit of a sucker for prettily-packaged or super-cute beauty buys as they make for fantastic gifts for girlfriends and this new Beauty Style Petites collection definitely fits into the perfect-for-presents category.
My favourites include the dinky Double Lash – a black mascara and gold glitter duo barely bigger than my pinky finger; Kiss me – an especially adorable sweet-flavoured lip gloss housed in a red lip-shaped compact (seriously too cute!); and Luxe Dust – a loose shimmer eyeshadow that can be used both wet and dry.
Minis make for perfect purse pals as who wants to be lugging an oversized tote with them on a night out?
Thankfully there’s a myriad little beauty loves to choose from like Bloom Mini Nail File Book – no more irritating snagged nails; Evodia Frangipani Mini Body Mist; Manicare Mini Retractable Lip Brush – for perfect-looking lips on the go; and VS Sassoon Mini Pro Ceramic Straightener – leaves no excuse for a bad hair moment!
Move over full sizers, I’m all for the mini movement!
