  • Remington T Studio Pearl Ceramic Straightini And Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Penetrating Oil

    Keep this six-inch Remington flatiron in your top desk drawer for emergency frizz situations or taming unruly bangs. It heats up to 392 degrees in 60 seconds, and the ceramic plates -- infused with crushed pearls -- provide a smoother glide. Or rub a few drops of this travel-size Moroccan argan oil into your palms and run them over your hair to eliminate flyaways, smooth split ends and add shine. Flatiron, $18, <a href="http://www.remingtonproducts.com/womens/ProductLines/TStudio/TStudio-Pearl-Ceramic-Straightini.aspx">RemingtonProducts.com </a> Oil, $4, <a href="http://stores.ulta.com/store/">Ulta.com</a> for store locations

  • Almay Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks

    Sometimes little mistakes leave a big mess. If you don't have time for a do-over, snap the end of one of these swabs to release a blend of aloe, cucumber and green tea, which will clean up mascara smudges and eyeliner flubs -- without removing the rest of your eye makeup. $6, <a href="http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=359490&catid=183591&aid=337953&aparam=almay_makeup_eraser_stic&CAWELAID=913173063">Drugstore.com</a>

  • Jouer Mini Luminizing Moisture Tint And Laura Mercier Undercover Pot

    We love how Jouer's tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 evens our complexion and gives an amazing glow -- but we don't like lugging a big tube of it on vacation. Each scaled-down tube in this set of four contains a week's worth of product, takes up a quarter of the room in our makeup bag and won't get swiped by the TSA. To camouflage dark circles and blemishes, try Laura Mercier's all-in-one pot, which comes with two shades of concealer in the cap (so you can blend them to match your skin tone) and a setting powder in the base. Moisture tint, $20 for four, <a href="http://www.jouercosmetics.com/products/79/cartlist.aspx">JouerCosmetics.com </a> Concealer, $34, <a href="http://www.lauramercier.com/store/shop/FLAWLESS-extras_Undercover-Pot_prod220016">LauraMercier.com</a>

  • Tweezerman Mini Brow Rescue Kit

    You'll find everything you need to tackle a Groucho brow situation in this pocket-size kit. It comes with tiny tweezers (to pluck any strays), a brow brush (to comb hair into place), brow gel (to set the shape) and a champagne-colored highlighter crayon (to brighten eyes and disguise any redness along your brow bones). $25, <a href="http://www.tweezerman.com/store/product/mini-brow-rescue-kit/">Tweezerman.com</a>

  • Tresemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

    Whether it's hat hair you've got or post-workout frizz, try a few spritzes of this mineral clay formula to boost limp roots in seconds. $3, <a href="http://www.walgreens.com/storelocator/find.jsp?tab=store%20locator&requestType=locator">Walgreens.com for store locations</a>

  • Michael Kors Leg Shine Mini To Go

    If you're going without stockings, add a subtle bronze sheen to pale legs. The mess-free stick makes it easy to apply, and it's small enough to fit in a clutch. $10, <a href="http://www.sephora.com/leg-shine-P20355?skuId=1000744">Sephora.com</a>

  • Philosophy 27 Wishes Skin Nurturing Balm

    This multipurpose moisturizing salve is a mini workhorse -- it fixes everything from new-shoe rub to dry knuckles. We like to apply it generously to chapped lips and use any left over on our cuticles. $18, <a href="http://www.philosophy.com/">Philosophy.com</a>

  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara

    The tube may be tiny (about as tall as your pinkie finger), but the brush is full-size so that you get the maximum amount of eye-opening volume and length in one swipe. $10, <a href="http://www.sephora.com/they-re-real-mascara-mini-P306403?skuId=1395482">Sephora.com</a>

  • Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips

    These give you results comparable to what you'd get at the dentist's office -- minus the co-pay (or time spent clock watching in the waiting room). The layer of peroxide on the strips whitens teeth in two hours, and results last up to three months. $55 for four doses, <a href="http://www.drugstore.com/crest-3d-white-whitestrips-2-hour-express-whitestrips-dental-whitening-kit/qxp319105">Drugstore.com</a>

  • Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix To Go

    It's not fun to spend 20 minutes in front of the mirror only to realize an hour later that your foundation has faded and your perfectly applied smoky eye has creased. Mist this weightless spray over your face to help your makeup stay put. $8, <a href="http://www.sephora.com/mist-fix-P169813?skuId=979229">Sephora.com</a>

  • Chanel Multi-Use Makeup Palette

    Get everything you need to touch up on the go inside this sleek, lightweight compact that includes two lip glosses, two cream concealers, three eyeshadows, cream blush, two glosses and a berry-colored lip color -- plus brushes for applying each. The only thing missing: a pocket-size makeup artist. $85, <a href="http://www.neimanmarcus.com/product.jsp?itemId=prod48190066">NeimanMarcus.com </a>
