Stowaway Cosmetics


I don’t try a lot of new makeup. I tend to find something that works for me, and then stick with it (probably for far too long). So it’s saying a lot that Stowaway’s peony cheek & lip rouge is now my #1 favorite beauty product.

Have you heard of Stowaway? I’ve started carrying all of their products around in the last week or so. They sent over some samples, and I love the concept: “makeup you love in sizes you can carry and actually finish.”


I routinely smear lipstick on my the temples of my cheeks and rub it in instead of using blush, so it’s like this rouge was made for me.

I think one of the reasons I started making my lipstick work so hard was that I just hated carrying around so much junk! I would get out the mascara and the eyeliner for dates and like how it looked (think: I should maybe do this more often), and then leave it behind (to expire) in the box where unused beauty products go to die.

Now, most of the time, I have a large bag, but it’s packed with diapers, snacks, and (cute) miniature hats. I tend to relegate myself to a clutch I toss inside with my phone, some money, sunglasses, and keys. And maybe that hardworking lipstick if there were room.


It was a little bit awesome when their kit arrived—radiant complexion BB cream, creaseless concealer, eyeliner, mascara, creme lipstick and, of course, cheek & lip rouge—and it all fit into the palm of my hand. And even better when I discovered I really liked everything. (I may even wear mascara beyond date-night.) Definitely a new fan.

You can create your own kit with your colors. Huge bonus: enter the code HITHERANDTHITHER and you get three of their summer products for free with the purchase of a kit—a free fig lipstick, cantaloupe lip & cheek pot rouge, and an extreme lash mascara. $42 in value.
