More Make-up Minis Please

Oh how I wish that  more make-up products were available in mini sizes.


"She must be crazy!"

"Why would a make-up artist(MUA) and enthusiast want less make-up?"

"The more make-up the better."

I'm sure these thoughts and more may have just crossed your minds, so let me explain.

The regular sizes are great for my MUA kit, but my personal collection is overflowing, and that is what I want the mini sizes for.

I currently have enough lipsticks, lip glosses and eye-shadows to last me a very, very, very long time.  And I know that I will buy more because new products and new colours are launched frequently; that's just the way the make-up industry is.

For My Lips

For My Eyes

For My Eyes

For My Face

Another reason I would love minis is because make-up, like most things in life, will not last forever.  You see, even make-up expires  and should be discarded; unless you want bacteria/germs on your skin which usually leads to breakouts. Make-up expiration and hygiene was the theme of my booth at the Jabez House Fundraiser.  From the response of the public it's something most persons aren't aware of.  In fact, I only found out about it late in my make-up journey.

I'm happy to see that OCC now has Mini Lip Tars  because you only need to use a tiny drop and that is enough to cover your lips.  I have three of their regular sized products Stalker, Hoochie and Meta which I hardly use because even though I only have one pair of lips, I have a multitude of lip products to choose from.

Believe it or not I still have quite a few items on my make-up wishlist.  So if I don't need it I try not to buy it but sometimes I want it so bad that I can't resist.

What about you?
