If you've ever been to Sephora and been totally overwhelmed, you're not alone. The sheer volume of products is hard enough to navigate, and then there's also the fear of wasting your money on an expensive product that doesn't work out. That's why you should never leave Sephora (or your favourite beauty store) without checking out the travel-sized section. Not only are these mini products great for (duh) traveling, but they're also ideal for trying something out before committing to the full size.

But what to get? Allow us to help you narrow it down. Here are 10 of the best travel-sized beauty products Sephora has to offer.

1. Lancôme Everyone Needs a Little Drama set, $15.

Mascara is the #1 item that you should get in a travel size. This way, you can try out more expensive options at a more affordable price, and you don't have to worry about a full-sized tube expring. This limited edition set contains minature version of Lancome's Mini Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base, Hypnose Drama Mascara, and Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover--so you have everything you need to apply and take off your mascara, all in very portable sizes.

2. Smashbox Try It Kit, $18.

 

If you're interested in trying out a few bestsellers from a popular brand that you've heard a lot about (like Smashbox!), a kit full of mini-size products is the way to go. This kit contains Smashbox Photo Op Eye Shadow Trio, 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer, Full Exposure Mascara, and Photo Finish Foundation Primer. (FYI: the foundation primer is a bestseller for a reason, and the different varieties all come in $15 travel sizes.)

3. Josie Maran Argan Bear Naked Nail Wipes, $9.

Ever show up for job interview or important meeting only to realize that your nails are sporting an old, chipped manicure? Rather than frantically trying to pick the rest of the polish off (and damaging your nails in the process), keep this pack of 20 nail wipes in your bag at all times. Not only will they remove polish, but they'll also strengthen nails and hydrate dry cuticles thanks to an infusion of argan oil.

4. Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder, $19.

This finishing powder has a cult following but the full-sized price can be discouraging to a first-timer. Try out the mini size first to see if you like it (and let's be real: .14 ounces will still last you a long time). You can wear it alone or over foundation to mattify skin, soften fine lines and pores, and set makeup.

5. Perfect Formula Nail Essentials Duo, $20.

This set of two gel coat formulas from Nail Essentials will help to strengthen your nails with the help of keratin protein. The pink gel coat is especially nice because it gives your nails a subtle rosy glow.

6. Tocca Beauty Violette Deluxe Miniature, $15.

Tocca makes gorgeous fragrances, but if you want to dip your toes in before committing to a full size bottle then you should purchase this 0.5 oz dabber. Not only does Violette smell amazing, but you'll also get to own a beautiful, miniature Tocca perfume bottle.

7. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, $12.

Urban Decay is known not only for their gorgeous eye shadow palettes but also their shadow primers. The original Primer Potion is a sheer base for your eye shadow that will keep it from creasing or fading all day, and the 0.2 oz travel size (in a handy little squeeze tube) is the perfect option for trying it out or taking with you on trips.

8. Supergoop! Forever Young Hand Cream SPF 40, $12.

There's plenty of hand creams to choose from, but we recommend this especially enthusiastically. With SPF 40 and antioxidants to protect hands from aging and sun damage, as well as argan oil and buckthorn fruit (which can lighten dark spots), this hand cream has everything you need to keep your hands looking beautiful. It even smells good; how could we ask for anything more?

9. MDSolarSciences Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 40, $18.

The #1 item you need this summer, whether you're going on vacation or staying home, is a portable sunscreen stick. That way, if you forget to apply sunscreen in the morning or just need touch-ups later in the day, you'll always be covered. This one is small, lightweight, and has an unscented formula of mineral sunscreen and antioxidants.

10. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Peel Original Formula, $16.

Facial peels can be great for your skin, but you don't want to waste the money on 30 or 60 expensive peels only to find after the first one that your skin doesn't like them. For less than $20, you can try out this popular peel five times before making it a permanent fixture of your skin care routine. And if you're ready to move on to the extra strength formula, you can do the same again!
