Are the latest beauty and wellness products worthy of a spot in your teensy carry-on? T+L Associate Editor Kathryn O’Shea-Evans shares her take.

The product: Kjaer Weis Organic Mascara, $38

Pros: The Land o’ Lashes is typically strewn with synthetic polymers and plastic tubes that are relegated to the landfill every few months. Enter Italy-made Kjaer Weis Mascara, with a certified organic formula and re-fillable metal packaging that’s actually glamorous.

Cons: My only beef? I love it so much that I’ll now be forced to buy refills at $24 a pop, instead of my cheapie drugstore brand. But if every time I pull out the sleek tube I feel like Grace Kelly—which I do—it’s worth it, wouldn’t you say? 

Verdict:  Packable.
