Budget Friendly Beauty Gifts That Won’t Break the Bank!
Budget Friendly Beauty
It’s that time of year again! The Holidays are creeping up on us fast this year and the beauty industry has some great gifts this year! Now we all know that makeup and skin care can get really expensive so I thought I’d find a few great gifts to share with you all that are under $30. I know a lot of people are thinking under $25 and I was too until I started making this list and found that there were some real gems in that $25-$29 range that would make great gifts so I broadened our scope a tad. Our list contains both luxury and drugstore brands and I believe we covered all the bases, so let’s just dig on in and because this my dear is a pretty big list!
This is a nice little set. The Best of Brights contains the cult classic Glow Tonic Toner, Glow Mud Cleanser, and Glow Mud Mask. This set is perfect for skin brightening thanks to the punch of glycolic acid. $22, Pixi Beauty
*Tip* If your loved one has rosacea or other skin condition try the Rose version.
This set is perfect for the bath lover on your list. I find that a nice soak in a warm fragrant bath help my anxiety and just over all peace of mind. So in the interest of peace and tranquility I buy a lot of bath bombs! This lovely set includes 5 bath bombs in upscale holiday fragrances like Whipped Vanilla Crème & Pomegranate Prosecco. $18, Ulta Beauty
I couldn’t do a beauty gift guide without adding some brushes. The Lavish Elegance brush set is very different from the run of the mill pinks and golds you see on other brushes, The Champagne, lavender, and stone gray makes this brush set super unique! I love BH Cosmetics brushes because they are adorable yet don’t skimp on the quality. $29. BH Cosmetics
The Desert Oasis palette is a great universal palette for the winter months. It has a nice mixture of mattes and shimmers plus 5 Highlighter shades. It’s perfect for beginners as you can pull off several looks with this one palette, $22, BH Cosmetics
The Nars Orgasm blush is a cult classic. I am obsessed with the peachy pink shade that adds just the right amount of color to your cheeks. The lipstick is a high quality semi-matte vitamin E enriched formula in the same Orgasm shade. Both in mini sizes that make the set more affordable and travel friendly. $24, Sephora
It’s no secret here that I am a BIG Too Faced Fan! This cute little set contains 4 stocking sized melted matte liquid lipstick in holidays scents. $25, Sephora
