Stowaway Makeup Kit

Cosmetics startup Stowaway is on a mission to rid the world of bulky makeup bags and semi-full mascaras that are past their prime. They make beautiful makeup that’s half the size of typical products — perfect for stashing in your pocket, purse or luggage…

Stowaway Lipstick

Stowaway works with top labs to create creamy, long-lasting formulas in gorgeous colors. (Joanna regularly wears this lipstick in Raspberry.) Because of the portable size, you can carry and finish their products before they expire. Here are a few more things we like about Stowaway:

  • They use clean ingredients you can trust (no parabens or phthalates, and their products are free of over 1,300 more ingredients banned in the European Union).
  • Their products create less waste and clutter because you will finish them before they expire; they also offer a recycling program for empties. As they say, “half the size and none of the waste or worry.”
  • They offer a satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t like something, just send it back and they’ll send you something else you’d like to try at no cost.
  • Your entire beauty routine fits in the palm of your hand.
