It’s December so shopping for Christmas is in full swing. From office Secret Santas to filling a loved ones stocking we’re all looking for little gifts that won’t make a huge dent in our wallets. If you’re a little stuck for ideas look no further; I’ve compiled a list of items, all under £7, that could grace the stocking of any beauty fan.
Balmi Lip Balm (£4.99) – Balmi Lip Balms are fantastic little balms. Tucking neatly into handbags and attaching onto keychains; they’re perfect for on the go hydration. The unique, ergonomic shape makes the balm really comfortable to use. Available in strawberry, raspberry, mint, blackcurrant and coconut there’s a flavour for everyone.
Invisibobble (3 pack, £3.75) – The cult bobble that doesn’t kink the hair or damage the hair shaft, these are great for tying your hair back at night and are a Blogger’s favourite. I especially love this little festive edition pack containing three glittery gold and red Invisibobbles!
Cosmopolitan Beauty Kabuki Brush (£6.95) – Cosmopolitan Beauty is a range of quality, yet inexpensive, beauty tools and are ideal for anyone just beginning to experiment with makeup application as you can discover which tools are right for you without spending a fortune. This super soft Kabuki brush is perfect for blending and it won’t break the bank. It also comes with a pouch to keep the bristles protected and your makeup bag clean.
Makeup Revolution Hard Day palette (£6) – Makeup Revolution Salvation palettes are incredible value but don’t skimp on quality. They are raved about in beauty circles and some rate them almost as highly as more expensive brands such as Urban Decay. Hard Day is a brand new Salvation palette and contains a mixture of 18 matte and shimmer shades. With glossy black packaging, a large mirror and great pigmentation the Makeup Revolution Salvation palettes are fantastic. Priced at just £6, I seriously don’t know how they make them for the money!
Models Own Velvet Goth nail polish in Sardonyx (£5) – This full coverage glitter polish is stunning for the party season. A vampy, deep red shade it dries to a slight matte finish and looks so sophisticated. You can’t go wrong with this colour and it has just the right level of sparkle.
I know us ladies can be notoriously difficult to buy for but I don’t think you can go far wrong with any one of these beauty essentials. From some well-known and very current brands i’m sure anyone who is into beauty would be happy to find these gifts in their stocking. I do hope my little guide has inspired you!
