Mary Kayís Compacts Minis are not only handy but environmentally friendly too!

If you have a good deal of makeup, like me, you really begin appreciating how handy it is to have palettes of different varieties. I love having a travel palette, an eye palette, a blush palette, even a concealer palette. They just make organization and travel so much easier. This season, Mary Kay has two gorgeous Mini Compacts that come with gorgeous colors, but you can also add to them with other Mary Kay colors that you might use more. These little palettes were so handy for me while I was in New York for Fashion Week that I just had to write a little something extra about them.

Each Compact Mini has room for three eye shades as well as one blush. Underneath the colors is a bit of extra room for the Mary Kay applicators, if youíre not one to carry additional brushes around in your purse. Of course the eye shades are lovely and nicely pigmented so you donít need to touch up too often, but when I was going from a day event to a night event, these things were an absolute lifesaver. Iím really into these refillable cases as well – there is a lot of waste in the beauty packaging industry, and refillable compacts just appeal to my inner ecological activist. These compact cases are very solid; they lasted an entire ten days in my bag without showing any signs of wear, so durability definitely isnít a problem. I also love how the shadow pans are not exceptionally large. I know others may like more product, but Iím always concerned about how long to keep something before it goes bad, and I like to switch my colors out every season. The colors Iím using right now are absolutely perfect for fall. So my beauty tip of the day? Look for refillable compacts or palettes like the Mary Kay Compact Mini. Not only are they gentle on the environment, they are also gentle on your wallet.
