How is it already December 11th? Are you thinking that, because I certainly am! Just in case you're starting to feel the pressure too, I've rounded up 10 perfect presents that won't break the bank. From full makeup palettes and delish bath & body goods to Bobbi Brown's latest book, you'll feel great about gifting any of these beauties and they all cost $25 or less!
Stila's Holiday Lip Glaze Set ($25) is one of my favorite gifts to give every year. You get 8 gorgeous glosses to gift as you will! Give the entire set to one lucky person, or break them up and add a few shades as a glamorous add-on for four of your friends.
How this Eye & Cheek Palette only costs $23 is beyond me! Honestly. You can't see it from this image, but the top is a gorgeous quilted gunmetal grey that just looks expensive. Then inside you have 16 shimmering neutral shadows, 3 flattering cheek colors, and a mirror that's actually big enough to use! And if you're looking to spend even less, the supremely chic and compact Eye, Cheek, & Lip Palette is only $15.
I'm not sure Philosophy makes a bath & body indulgence that I don't adore, but peppermint is one of my favorite holiday scents. This tub 'o Candy Cane Salt Body Scrub ($25) tops on my list! It smells ahhh-mazing, leaves your skin feeling super smooth, and moisturizes too. And if you have someone who needs a little more spice in their life, try The Gingerbread Man Ginger Hot Salt Scrub instead.
If you want even more Philosophy goodness for less, The Cookbook is now only $24! With 4 recipe-inspired shower delights including eggnog, peppermint bark, cinnamon buns, & hot buttered rum, it will make the ideal gift for your friend who believes that variety is the spice of life!
Packed in a stylish red & white tin, Smashbox Studio Pop for Eyes ($24) is ideal for the liner lover. With 4 travel-sized limited edition shades and Full Exposure Mascara, the gift of glam eyes is all wrapped up.
From natural to bold, Bobbi Brown's Pretty Powerful Book ($24.95) takes a fresh approach to finding your makeup style. Packed with celebs like FEED Founder Lauren Bush, actress Gabourey Sidibe, boxer Keisher McLeod-Wells, and singer Estelle, along with dozens of other inspiring women, this book is an amazing gift for anyone on your list. Regardless of whether they're beauty obsessed or all-out sporty, they'll discover how to feel more comfortable, confident, and beautiful my making makeup work for them.
Of course butter LONDON has lovely, sparkling holiday lacquers that are under $25. My boy Jack the Lad and any of holiday collection shades ($14) would make perfect gifts, but I wanted to focus on this Holiday Remover Trio ($19) instead. First, I think it could make a hilarious gift for the holiday hater with a little note like, "Get lacquered as often as you'd like this holiday season!" Second, we all know someone who hates the smell of polish remover??? Well, no more! It's straight-up cray how good these smell. I realize that may sound weird, but get one whiff of these scented removers and you'll never look back.
Since we're on the topic of nails, this Tweezerman Mini Nail Rescue Set ($20) is so cute and little and PERFECT for throwing in any bag. It's ideal for friends or family who think meticulous manis are a must have!
I was just on set at a photo shoot yesterday talking about the importance of eye cream and SPF, so imagine how excited I was to find this Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Eyes Must-Have Holiday Set! Black Lash Extending Mascara, Eye & Lip Makeup Remover, and Ceramide Lift & Firm Eye Cream with SPF 15 for just $21.50. I know, bananas, right...
And all the Benefit Babes will experience pure bliss when they unwrap this Feelin' Cheeky Trio ($15). Benetint, Posie Tint and High Beam have been purse-sized and packed together just in time for holiday happiness!
