You know that saying “It’s the little things in life?” Yeah, well I’m a big believer in the whole “less is more” area, especially when it comes to gifts. Whether you’re looking for a little something to add to your loved ones’ holiday gifts or want to stock your own stuffing this year, I’ve rounded up a few beauty goodies that won’t break the bank!
Are you a mascara junkie? Then you’ll love this fun and affordable limited edition eyelash curler and mascara duo from tarte! (tarte.com, $16) Prefer a bit more variety in your makeup? Check out this mascara, liner, lip gloss trio from bareMinerals (bareescentuals.com, $18).
Every year I get excited all over again to see what holiday products philosophy comes out with! This year, I’m totally crushing on their cinnamon buns shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath ornament (philosophy.com, $6). Another brand that’s hopped on the adorable beauty-filled ornament trend? AHAVA. Each of their decorative holiday tubes contains two of the brand’s top selling products, and they’re totally perfect for the traveling gal in your life. (ahavaus.com, $10)
The holidays are the perfect time to have a little bit of fun with your nails! Nail art anyone?! This season, give yourself the gift of beautiful nails with the best in holiday shades. Our picks? OPI’s limited edition Kardashian Kolor Holiday lacquers (Ulta.com, $8 each) or Jesse’s Girl’s JulieG Holiday Collection (Rite Aid stores and jessesgirlcosmetics.com, $4 each).
Too cute to pass up
Winter is going to be here before you know it, and you know what that means? Cold and flu season is coming with it. Ward off the seasonal germs in style with Bath & Body Works’ adorable PocketBacs in fun holiday flavors. Our fave? Vanilla Bean Noel (bathandbodyworks.com, $2)
And last but not least, if you haven’t fallen in love with the brand behind the amazing and cute egg-shaped lip balms, now’s the perfect time!
