Tis the season for last-minute shopping and wandering around the mall aimlessly. Yea, that doesn’t sound fun for me either. I get as much of my Christmas shopping done before hand as much as I can. While you’ve still got a few weeks, the malls are nuts, and if you’re like me, you’ll avoid them as much as possible! If you aren’t done shopping yet, and you still need a few ideas, I gathered a few stocking stuffers for her in my beauty gift guide below! Just a small disclaimer, I never recommend products that I haven’t tried or are willing to/going to try, so everything listed below is personally recommended by me!
Beauty Gift Guide: All Under $50
Ok to be fair I haven’t exactly tried this yet, but its on its way to arrive on my doorstep in a couple of days! I have many MAC products that I enjoy, so when I saw the sale (plus free gift) on Cyber Monday. It was one of my last purchases of Cyber Week, and the words FREE GIFT caught my eye. I’m a sucker. Regardless of need I am definitely interested in trying these in the 3 different scents!
When I started building this guide I had at least half of it as lipsticks and glosses. Honestly, I am most comfortable talking about lip products. It’s the one product I love to buy, and have always loved to buy and try. I got the bare minerals matte liquid lip color a few months ago at a launch party for their new BarePro Performance Wear Liquid Foundation (which I also use when I’m not using this powder). I didn’t even know they had products other than foundation. This matte lip color stays on all day long, through eating, drinking, and anything else once it dries. It’s my favorite to wear when I don’t want to think about my lip color all day.
I told you this was full of lip products! Bite Beauty is another great lip brand. I’ve tried a few of the crayons and lipsticks, and they are such great colors! They are clean and smooth to put on, but I use them for quick, bold colors, but only for a few hours. I need to re-apply after eating and drinking.
I use the Naked palette linked here daily. I do love eyeshadow and trying new colors, but I always seem to go back to this one! Plus it lasts forever! I got mine for Christmas a few years ago and I have years left on it. This palette even survived my dog chewing on the edges!
I have such confidence in Bare Minerals products, I want to try all of the products! I always look for a great finishing touch on my look, and I’m hoping to try this one! Plus, how pretty is the packaging?
I partnered with L’Occitane earlier this year, and I could not stop using the products after the partnership was over! I love this brand and cannot rave enough about it! The hand cream is seriously the best I have ever used, and everything smells so good! They have really cute sample and full-sized gift sets. Check them out, and get them for all of the women on your list!
Mascara is the other beauty product that I have been trying more and more of each year. I randomly stumbled upon this mascara in a beauty box of some sort. I can’t even remember which one now, but it is the most consistently awesome mascara I have in my rotation. Instead of choosing between lifting, lengthening, and thickening lashes, it does them all. It’s the top of my list!
I wrote about Formula 10.0.6 this summer when I was having a girls night! These masks are inexpensive and fun for girls, teens, and women alike. The ones I tried made my skin softer and smoother, and most importantly, they were fun!
This duo is made up of Philosophy’s famous Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath and Body Lotion. While I’ve never tried this scent, I’ve never smelled a bad scent from Philosophy! My mom gifted me a Christmas scent over Thanksgiving, but I couldn’t bring it with me back to Dallas since I didn’t have a checked bag. I cannot wait to use it when I’m home for Christmas, though and that time I am definitely bringing it back with me!
This was in the same purchase as the other MAC set above, and I purchased it for many of the same reasons… A free gift, and that it was Cyber Monday and what would a few extra dollars be at that point? Plus, it’s rose gold which I’m definitely obsessed with. Stay tuned to see what I think of the colors and products on insta-stories!
11. NARS Lip Gloss
Another oldie but goodie. I received this lip gloss as a gift a couple of years ago from my boss from my job at that time. I have it in a deep burgundy color, so I like to wear it when I go out. It goes on smoothly and hold color well for a gloss. I usually wear it a night due to the dark color, but I think the colors in this set would be great for any time!
As I was writing this I realized that most of these products that I had already were gifts, and I would have never found them otherwise. Gifting beauty products may not be your first inclination, but it is absolutely appreciated and they are fantastic stocking stuffers for her! Plus this time of year when everything is on sale is the time to try new things, so treat yourself to something as well!You can click on the image or the header of the product description to shop any of these products in my beauty gift guide! Everything I linked is under $50 for the holidays. I loved sharing my beauty picks with you in this gift guide! Is there anything you would add?
