Budget Beauty Holiday Gift Guide, Part 1

The holidays can get expensive with so many people to buy presents for – your mom, your sister, your cousin, your boyfriend’s mom, aunts, grandma, and your BFFs – it can be tempting to  take the easy way out and buy a few boring lotion giftpacks that no one will ever use. Fortunately, we’ve scoured the web for beauty-related gifts $25 or less that every girl on your list will love!

1. Too Faced Easy on the Eyes Gift Set ($10 at Ulta) – This kit contains two amazing products from Too Faced, their Lash Injection mascara and Eye Shadow Insurance, in a cute pink bag. The mascara is long-lasting and doesn’t clump, and the eye shadow primer keeps shadow from creasing or smudging – perfect for looks that need to go from day to night!

3. Clinique Limited-Edition Long Last Shine Set ($25 at Clinique) – If you’re going to give lip gloss as a gift, make sure it’s high quality. Clinique’s gloss has a high shine and stays put all day, making it an ideal inexpensive but luxurious gift.
4. Tarte Three Carats Mini Cheek Stain Set ($25 at Sephora) – Tarte’s cheek stains are amazing. You can take our word for it, or you can look at all the beauty awards its won! This set contains three new shades that will flatter most skin tones (and it’s all-natural).
