With Christmas only 2 weeks away, we’ve officially entered the last-minute holiday shopping territory.
Some of you might not have checked everyone off your shopping list yet. As a procrastinator myself, I thought it would be helpful to put together some last minute beauty gift ideas!
Here are 7 amazing beauty gifts that are sure to please, whether it’s your beauty-obsessed friend or family member. And these fabulous beauty buys will arrive just in time for Christmas, thanks to the glorious free 2-day-shipping savior that is Amazon Prime!
So don’t stress even if you’re short on time before the holidays…you can order these from the comfort of your couch! Even better, almost everything on the list below is under $50! And, hey, I wouldn’t blame you for stocking up on a few for your yourself while you’re at it!
This limited-edition set features 3 stunning shades of the YSL Tatouage Couture matte liquid lipstick that’s packed with pigmented and stays put without drying out your lips.
Trust me, when I tell you that this is the first time I am LOVING all the shades in a lipstick set…they are gorgeous. This lip set sold out at Sephora but you can still snag it at Amazon or Nordstrom (even cheaper!) Grab it before it’s gone!
Give the gift of gorgeous hair with this luxe oil serum! No matter the hair type, this stuff is truly “liquid gold” and brings back life to dull, lackluster hair without the grease factor! With a blend of four precious oils, it adds shine and nourishment while smoothing and taming frizz.
Its versatile formula can be used on both wet and dry hair without worrying about hair being weighed down. And a little goes a long way, so it’s totally worth the splurge! Not to mention, it smells ah-mazing!!
Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask ($49, also available at Sephora)
Give this cult-favorite face mask to your BFF who struggles with super oily skin and acne, and she will love you even more for introducing her to this game-changer!
Made with super-powered Australian botanicals, this pore-refining mask unclogs pores, reduces oiliness and stops breakouts in their tracks. Like the pink sand from Australia’s iconic beaches, Pink Clay has a slightly gritty texture to gently exfoliate, remove blackheads and detoxify pores without stripping skin’s natural moisture. And it works amazingly well as an acne spot treatment too!
Packed with natural minerals (including Silica) and Vitamin C rich Kakadu Plum, it helps smooth skin while reducing redness, irritation and inflammation. Vegan and cruelty-free, this mask is now also available at the Clean Beauty section at Sephora.
IT Cosmetics Brush Believer Super Squad 5 Pc Brush Set + Vanity Tray (On SALE at Ulta Beauty for only $47.60)
You can’t go wrong with gifting fresh makeup brushes…who wouldn’t want and love a brand new brush set! And especially those from IT cosmetics which are the best makeup brushes I’ve tried so far!
This brush set with $168 value is a total steal under $50. It comes with 5 full-sized foundation, powder, crease, eyeshadow and liner makeup brushes with ultra-plush, cruelty-free hairs that won’t shed.
Complete with chrome handles, these makeup brushes attach to the matching magnetic vanity case (that doubles as a clutch!), storing them in an upright position for effortless organization and a beautiful display!
Another great gift set from IT cosmetics with an amazing value is the Superhero Lash & Liner Superpowers Eye Trio $29 ($72 value)! It includes 3 best-selling makeup must-haves including full-sized Superhero Volumizing Mascara (in Black) and Superhero Liner in Black and a travel-sized No-Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Black.
All perfectly packaged in a cute confetti cosmetic bag! Give the trio as a full gift set, or take it apart to use the pieces as individual stocking stuffers. Highly recommend this set if you are an IT girl like me!
Super-smooth skin without the hassle of waxing? Yes, please! This is the perfect gift for anyone who doesn’t have the time to fit in regular wax appointments.
Silk-épil 9 is the world’s 1st smart epilator with an innovative sensor that guides your epilation, ensuring the right amount of pressure is applied to remove even more hair in one stroke. It precisely removes even the shortest hairs that wax cannot catch (4x shorter hair than wax) for long-lasting smoothness. So you won’t have to wait for your body hair to grow long enough for waxing. No hassle, no mess, no wax appointments!
Not only that, this rose-gold toned epilator is 100% waterproof and can be comfortably used in the bath or shower too! And it comes with 7 extras, including a face and body trimmer for sensitive areas.
Gift-boxed for easy giving, this luxurious lip set from Jane iredale comes with two long-lasting, saturated stains and a clear shimmer gloss.
The two lip stain shades – Craving (light salmon) and Fascination (rosy pink) can be worn solo, layered or blended. Perfect for any lipstick addict on your holiday list!
If you have a green beauty lover on your list, this is the perfect gift!
