Marvelous Minis

We just watched In Bruges the other night, a truly disconcerting movie in that I found it to be equal parts hilarious and disturbing. Definitely some parts were funnier than others, such as the following exchange between Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson:

Ray (Colin Farrell): What are they doing over there? They're filming something. They're filming midgets!

Ken: (Brendan Gleeson) Ray... [Ray runs off] Ray, come on. Let's go.

Ray: F*** off, Ken. They're filming midgets!

This is related in that I recently came across some very intriguing small-sized products that I thought were worth a mention.

The Tweezerman Petite Manicure Set ($20) is only 3.5 x 1.5 inches but contains all the necessaries for a manicure on the fly (nail file, cuticle/hangnail trimmer, pushy and nail cleaner) in a cute carrying case. I can think of so many uses for this: travel kit, stocking stuffer, thank you gift, emergency kit for a desk, purse, or briefcase, and camping just to name a few. It only has a little bit of pink on it so it might even be tolerable to a guy.

Anastasia Mini Brow Kit ($25), available exclusively at Nordstrom, includes my three favorite things from the Anastasia All About Brows Kit in miniature size: tweezers, clear brow gel, and the brow highlighter. I have some reservations about how easy it might be to use mini tweezers, but in a pinch it would work.
The Bourjois Mini Volume Glamour Mascara ($8 at Ulta but currently on clearance sale for $2 at Sephora) is a little gimmicky, but nevertheless cute. Essentially a charm for your cell phone, this is perfect for both the girl-on-the-go who loves to re-apply mascara and the girl-on-the-go who always forgets. Attach it to your cell and never again have an excuse for lackluster lashes. It's actually pretty good mascara, too.

Oooo, that mini brown kit looks fab! I've been wanting to try her products without buying the whole freakin' kit.

The Anastasia stuff is so insanely expensive. Even $25 for this little kit is on the high side, but it is better than the usual $65-75. BTW, I thought that this kit was exclusive to Nordstrom, but I see that it is also on the sephora website. Let me know how you like it.
