There are products, like eyeshadow, that even though they’ll take awhile to finish in the most common size (0.05 oz.), I don’t know if they would be that practical if they were smaller as they might break more easily or simply be so small in physical size as to make it hard to use. For other things, like highlighters, blushes, and bronzers, I think that they are often far larger than they need to be (from both a functional and usable perspective).

Powder Highlighters

I’m a huge fan! There’s little not to love except for the ones that have less base color and lots of glitter/sparkle that doesn’t bind with the base powder. I don’t mind sparkly highlighters, but they still have to go on smoothly and not have a ton of travel!
