Stowaway Cosmetics Puts a Makeup Counter in Your Pocket

Think about all the lipsticks and mascaras you chuck into your bag, just in case. Now think of how many times you’ve actually finished one.

Stowaway Cosmetics gives you the product you’ll want to take out with you, at the size and price that actually make sense. I have four or five of their lipsticks (which have lasted through a couple rounds of drinks), each with a permanent place in a different bag of mine, and I’ve re-bought their flake-free, lightweight mascara twice. They’ve become as much of a purse staple for me as extra tampons and a hair elastic.

Stowaway also gives you the option to buy their pint-sized products in sets at a discount, all nestled into a carrying case. You won’t end up with lipstick on your fingers or a broken compact at the bottom of your bag.


While their formulations may not hold up as well as other brands, Stowaway’s small pricing and stature make way more sense than carrying around precious products in your bag. You won’t want to leave home without them.
