Beauty sticks are perfect for a grab-and-go approach to beauty. Not only are they time-saving but they’re fool-proof too. Forgiving, blendable formulas that have multiple applications mean not only can you skinny down on your packing for summer travels, but you can also cleverly invest in fewer, higher quality products to streamline your cosmetics bag.

How Do We Love Beauty Sticks? Let Us Count The Ways

Security: Beauty sticks, because of their solid state, don’t have to be scanned at security, meaning you can breeze through without a plastic bag in sight.

Spillages: Liquids be gone. Sticks’ solid formulas mean you don’t have the mess or the fuss of worrying about leaks in your luggage.

Size: If you are packing light, slimline beauty sticks are perfect for popping into compact luggage.

Staying Power: Balm formulas are usually more concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Money-saving too!
