[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Aside from Benefit’s Hello Happy, there really aren’t many ‘mini’ foundations around but I like the idea of them a lot. If you’re not a regular foundation wearer and only dip in now and then, a mini has the benefit of being finished before it goes past its best – I’m acutely aware of the foundations I have probably needing to be thrown before I can use them all up because I’m using so much less. Assuming we can travel again one day, I like them for portability (I try to travel carry-on only) and also for blending – despite all the colour choices that we now have, tones change throughout the year and it’s not a bad idea to have a couple of minis at hand to colour shift as the season goes along – maybe one a shade lighter and one a shade deeper.
There are 21 shades in the 13ml Long-Wear Weightless formula (matte) which costs £19 HERE.
I’m forever a fan of an eye stick as a quick lid topper – if you’re a glasses wearer, these are make up salvation because they don’t require the same accuracy as blended shadows and are a soft and creamy formula. It’s pretty much one swipe and you’re done. I think they’re good value at £12.50 each in Golden Bronze and Golden Pink HERE.
I’m also a fan of Illuminating Moisture Balm – a bit less strobey than Strobe Cream but in the same family. It’s perfectly moisturising and gives your complexion a hint of lightfulness on bare skin days when you want a subtle glow. This mini isn’t quite so mini in price at £28 HERE (full size is £45) but again, because it’s something of a summery product you will probably be able to finish it up and not have it lounging guiltily through winter.
