To paraphrase Billy Shakespeare, though it may be little, it is fierce.

I'll admit, when something is mini-sized, I can't help but love it. Those tiny Vaseline containers? They practically send me into a tailspin. I don't know what it is. Imagine what happened to me when I found out that Stowaway's Creme Lipstick in Scarlet was going to be in our June Beauty Bag? Full-on freak out. And not just because the tiny lipstick is so stinkin' cute. It also conveniently fits into any clutch, is super comfortable to wear, and has pigmentation to die for. Obviously, I had to chat with Stowaway co-founder and CEO Julie Fredrickson about this perfect lil' lippie. Here's what she had to say.
