We’re getting dangerously close to that time of the year again and I know you are already stressing out about what to buy the makeup junkie or skin care addict in your life. Well, fret no more. Here is my list of 10 holiday gifts under $30 that will make any beauty lover glad you are in their life.
Pixi Hello Glow! Kit – $22
This cute little kit contains a liquid highlighter (which can also be used as a primer), a powder blush/highlighter duo and a lip plumping gloss. Pixi is usually considered affordable (although that term is very subjective), but this $22 bundle is definitely a bargain!
Includes 8 customisable highlighting and contouring shades. A huge advantage is that if you run out of one shade, you can buy them separately as singles! This contour palette is one of my holy grails and I’ve already talked about here.
The highlighter and the gloss are two of Fenty Beauty’s most coveted products and will surely not disappoint.
Contains the famous C-Firma Day Serum which will firm and brighten, and the B-Hydra Serum whose job is to quench and illuminate the skin. These two products are good for all skin types. Drunk Elephant is normally a very expensive brand and it’s such a treat to see that it’s accessible to more people and a part of this ‘holiday gifts under $30’ post.
Natasha Denona is another one of those brands that not many people can afford if there isn’t some kind of holiday sale or travel size set going on. You cannot go wrong with these warm shades. They will suit all skin tones.
These are glitter eyeshadows infused with light-reflecting pearls to create high impact. They can be used on top of other shadows or just by themselves.
I think $29 is a great deal for five lip products, especially from these brands: Tarte (hydrating lipstick), Makeup Forever (liquid matte), Huda Beauty (liquid matte), Stila (liquid) and Boxom (lip polish). This set contains two full-size products and three minis, with different finishes.
Caudalie – Vinosource Holiday Cracker – $16
The French pharmacy favorite set contains a micellar cleansing water, a Thirst-Quenching serum, and a Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet, all in travel sizes. Another amazing bargain in this list of holiday gifts under $30.
There is a range of 5 eyeshadow palettes, each one packed with 9 super pigmented eyeshadows. The one in the picture is the Amethyst palette, but there are four others you can choose from, each one with a different colour story (green, blue, red or orange).
This is a sampler kit with six of Peter Thomas Roth’s most popular masks to detoxify, soothe, hydrate, and polish skin. Peter Roth Thomas products are well-loved by beauty junkies everywhere and have a great reputation. This kit has a $44 value, it’s worth a try!
