Travel-Sized Makeup: Carry-on Essentials (Stowaway Cosmetics Review)

Travel-sized makeup that actually fits in your carry-on! Stowaway Cosmetics makeup review.

If you're looking for a solution to overpacking when traveling, one of the easiest switches you can do is to pack smaller versions of your everyday items.

Typically I avoid overstuffing my suitcase by bringing travel-sized toiletries, compression bags, and packing cubes.

I was excited when Stowaway reached out to me to try their travel-sized makeup because I'm always looking for new ways to pack smarter.

Stowaway is a cosmetics company dedicated to producing travel-sized cosmetics you can actually finish (and are cruelty-free!).

Since I keep my makeup routine the same on the road as I do at home, I chose a few items from Stowaway that looked as close to the makeup I use every day.

That way I could compare the look and quality and see if it would be something I'd realistically bring while traveling instead of my regular makeup bag.

Stowaway sent me:

I was surprised by how much I loved the concealer! It felt full-coverage but not cake-y and blended well with my foundation.

The eyeshadow colors are almost exactly like the ones I use in my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. They went on nicely and stayed on all day!

I got a couple of compliments on my eyeshadow when I was out and about later.

I especially liked the maroon shade as that is my favorite way to add a pop of color to my crease on my eyes.

The mascara surprised me in a good way - I loved the mascara!

The lip glosses were smooth and I like having three colors to choose from - perfect for day or night.

 I couldn't get my camera to focus so I don't have a proper photo of the entire look! I liked the look though and would definitely bring this makeup along when traveling.
