I LOVE ELF products! Their blush / bronzer duos are some of my favorites and excel in pigmentation and quality. One of my favorites is Fiji which is shown below. Another great shade is Antigua.
One of my FAVORITE drugstore polish brands is definitely JulieG. You can find her line exclusively at Rite-Aid stores or on the Jesse’s Girl website. The formula on these is incredible and I have been using her new top coat nonstop! With over 30 different shades, these are a fabulous little stocking stuffer!
This was probably one of the most popular ELF gift sets this year and unfortunately is sold out online. I did find it still available if you click the link above (non affiliate) The brush in the kit is just so-so, but the palette itself is definitely worth the $5!
Of course I had to include ColourPop! But I wanted to solely focus on Frida, which my good friend Dani over at CoffeeBreakWithDani helped create. Frida is a warm mid toned nude pink with a satin finish that looks good on pretty much every skin tone. If you are looking to try ColourPop this year, I would definitely recommend grabbing this shade! I am so proud of her & hope I am as awesome as she is one day and can create a shade of my own! 😉
How cute is the packaging on these? Youtube Beauty Guru, Ingrid Nilsen, teamed up with Yes To & design students to create these LE wipes! They are perfect for removing makeup or just refreshing throughout the day!
These sets from Bliss would be awesome teacher gifts! I have a few stocked up for Rylan’s preschool teachers this year! They smell amazing and really hydrate your skin during the Winter months.
I love that BITE came out with these mini lip products! They already come with a To & From tag plus a string in case you want to give your very own lipstick tree to a girlfriend! How fun would that be? There are 8 shades in all and range in shade.
The gold packaging on these lipsticks is so luxe! Gerard Cosmetics glosses & lipsticks are VERY hyped up in the beauty world, but for a good reason! Their glosses apply and wear like a liquid lipstick and are incredibly pigmented. Same goes for the lipsticks! They have a ton of package deals on their website and I also have a coupon code for you to use to save even more money!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are an amazing lip product at the drugstore. I love that they packaged up 3 of their best selling shades into one convenient gift.
Brushes are a GREAT gift (in my opinion) for a hardcore makeup fan or someone who is just starting to build up their collection. All of these are under $20 and really awesome quality. The beauty blender is a definite must have for sure!
Another great drugstore brand which you can find at Ulta, is Jane Cosmetics. They have fabulous quality eyeshadows and blushes! So silky smooth and easy to blend out.
For the makeup lover who loves to a good mascara and liner, I would definitely recommend this great duo from PurMinerals. The Big Look mascara has been one of my faves lately and gives my lashes a crazy amount of length!
How stinkin cute are these palettes from theBalm? Perfect for traveling and they have the coolest drivers license design on the front. Both palettes contain blush, highlight & eye products. These are exclusively at Kohls & Kohls.com
I spotted this palette at my local Sephora and was blown away! For $15, you get an incredible amount of shadows, blushes & highlight products. I’m VERY surprised this is still available online, so I would definitely recommend grabbing it while you still can!
If you don’t want to splurge on the full size of the On The Rocks palette from Smashbox, this is a great alternative! It has the same quality shadows for a fraction of the price!
How beautiful is this blush from Laura Geller? The star is a shimmery highlight in starlight & the blush shade is Lychee Rose. Combined with the sparkling cocktail lip gloss, your recipient will be party ready!
Perfect for on the go, this duo from bareMinerals contains a mini illuminating touch up veil & brush. It gives you just the right amount of glow!
Blush lovers rejoice! These blushes from City Color Cosmetics are SO intense! Very pigmented and smooth – You would never guess this entire quad was $6!
That wraps up my Stocking Stuffer gift guide! I hope this helps in last minute shopping (And maybe you added a few ideas to your own wish list as well!)
