Christmas shopping can be a major headache, especially when your list of presents to buy is never-ending. Trying to figure out what to get people is often the most tedious part of the process. I know the struggle of trying to figure out what an aunt, niece, or cousin might like, especially when you’ve got a pretty specific budget.
Fret not! We’ve got a series of gift guides to give you a hand with the process, starting off with this list of the best value beauty gifts under $30!
#1 Burt’s Bees Classics In Your Purse, $22. There’s no better way to introduce someone to your favourite brand than with a collection of classics or best sellers. This Bee Merry classics set from Burt’s Bees contains a lip balm, cuticle cream and the signature Res-Q Ointment, as well as two hydrating face masks.
#2 Sephora Color Wishes 5 Eyeshadow Palettes, $29.This set of five individual eyeshadow duos is the perfect purchase. I especially love the fact that each duo makes a pretty great gift on its own if you’re looking for some really cute mini presents. They’ve even got little inspiring titles like ‘Be a Role Model’ or ‘Be a Rockstar’.
#3 Bare Minerals Dashing Duo, $28.Sometimes all you need is the perfect lip colour and a foolproof mascara. This mascara and lipgloss duo is absolutely adorable, and all you need for a great no-makeup-makeup day. You might even be tempted to treat yourself to one of these, and we don’t blame you!
#4 Tarte Fanciful Favourites Deluxe Discovery Set, $29.Some of the best types of gifts in the beauty world are deluxe-sized products. The recipient gets to try out the item without worrying about wasting a full-sized product. This set from Tarte contains deluxe versions of three of their signature products: The Maracuja Oil, a limited edition Amazonian Clay Blush in Fanciful and the Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara.
#5 Stila Huger Than Huge Extreme Lash Duo, $25.Another deluxe set comes from Stila, with their Lash Stunner Extreme Lash Primer and Huge Extreme Lash Mascara. I love deluxe mascaras more than most beauty products because mascaras have such a short shelf life. If you’ve gotta throw it out after three to six months, less wastage is always best!
