Day #3 of Holiday Gift Guides. As mentioned yesterday, today’s post covers beauty under $100. With items ranging from $25 to $99 (most in the $50ish range), you’re sure to find a great gift for the beauty buff on your list. Tomorrow I’m having surgery (nothing major), but probably won’t be able to get a post up until Friday and that one revolves around hair and body/fragrance gifts (so stay tuned). Alrighty, let’s check out my ten favorite beauty gifts under $100.
1 – Palette + Eye Set, 2 – Nail + Lip Set, 3 – Facial Scrubber, 4 – Sleeping Mask, 5 – Beauty Blender Set, 6 – Beauty Gift Bag, 7 – Lip Discovery Kit, 8 – Eyeshadow Palette, 9 – Brush Set, 10 – Glossier Set
This online only* gift set features the super-popular and coveted Tartelette eyeshadow palette for a multitude of eye looks, as well as an eyeliner and top-rated mascara. Pick it up online here.
If you’re looking to gift something classy and high-end without breaking the bank, these three YSL lipsticks are a cult favorite alongside some gorgeous nail polish shades. It’s a steal at $78 when one YSL lipstick will cost you $37! Get yours here.
This waterproof facial cleanser is giving the Clarisonic a run for its money with its hygienic rubberized material and ability to hold a charge for 300 uses/5 months. Comes in plenty of colors, too. Order here.
If the $99 silk pillowcase from yesterday’s post was a bit of sticker shock, this sleeping mask is less than 1/2 the price and still provides anti-aging protection in the eye area, which is one of the first to show signs of aging. Comes in three pretty pastel shades.
If you haven’t tried the original beauty blender yet, what on earth are you waiting for!? Yes, I do agree the Real Techniques sponge is a close second, but nothing totally beats the original. The solid cleanser is known to be more effective than the liquid cleanser, so this is a great set to pick up for yourself or a friend who wants flawless foundation application every single time. Find it here.
Ok, so this one has to be purchased alongside anything else Lancome (so you can buy a mascara or eye makeup remover for yourself to qualify…). This set has everything and also comes with the cute travel satchel.
Currently marked down to $28 from $39, this is the set to get – for sure! It has my all time favorite Bite Beauty shade in Leche (pretty nude peach/pink), along with a few other gems. Order now while it’s on sale.
No one can go wrong with an all matte palette – flattering on all ages. This palette has a nice mix of warm and cool shades to flatter everyone’s skin tone and I’ve seen nothing but amazing reviews and looks created with it. Great for a beauty newbie. Get it here.
I liked this set because I felt it would allow you to create an entire look, plus, at $65 it’s much more affordable than the high-end set I recommended yesterday. IT Cosmetics brushes are crazy soft and well-made and the synthetic bristles are easier to clean! Pick it up here.
I am loving my Glossier Black Tie Set, personally. The nail polish is incredibly long wearing (and who doesn’t love an opaque, pale pink). The graphite eyeliner is creamy upon application but blends out and sets all day long and the clear gloss is sticky, yet comfortable to wear. The Haloscope highlighter seems super white, but it’s actually more ‘dewy,’ less shimmery than their other shades – so anyone can use it. I’ll be sharing more of this on Instagram and Snapchat soon!
Which of these gifts caught your eye… let me know in the comments. Remember, tomorrow I won’t have a guide up, but I hope to have my hair/body/fragrance guide up for Friday. Wish me luck with my surgery! <3
