Best Beauty Gifts Under $25

Christmas is next week, which means we are in crunch time for finishing up those lists! If you’re still shopping for a beauty junkie or just need a few good stocking stuffer ideas, this list will definitely help! I’ve combined ten of my favorite makeup and skincare products (under $25 each) that are easy to find in stores so there’s no added stress of shipping costs or delayed arrival.

1.) Lush Bubble Bars

Bath bombs are great, but bubble bars are better! They still provide a colorful bath with a delicious scent, just with a lot more bubbles...who doesn’t want that?! I definitely recommend the Lush ones over any other brand because they’re made with more natural ingredients, which is pretty important when we’re talking about soaking the body in it for 20 minutes. My favorites are The Comforter, Milky Bath, and The Brightside.

2.) Pixi Beauty DetoxifEYE Hydrogel Under-Eye Patches

These are the best under eye patches I’ve ever used. Besides making a noticeable difference in firming the under eye area in just 15 minutes, they’re also incredibly comfortable because they’re very thin and completely gel. Some under eye patches will have paper or foil on one side, which can stab into the skin and create an unpleasant experience.

3.) Evian Facial Spray

This makes for a great gift because it’s something you really don’t understand or think you need until you try it. Even I thought it would be a waste at first, but it quickly became one of my favorite products. The mist is very fine, which makes it great for melting makeup into the skin or to provide a quick refresh throughout the day. 

4.) Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer

I didn’t think much of this primer at first because it’s not the best at controlling my oil, but it has still become one of my favorites because of how well it blurs the pores. As soon as this is applied to the skin, pores and fine lines are visibly erased! This is good for all skin types and will make a difference with or without the addition of makeup.

5.) Elf Bite-Size Eyeshadows

These quads are only $3 each and would make great stocking stuffers or could be combined and gifted as a set. I have three of the eight shade options available. Cream & Sugar (shown first in the photo below) is definitely my favorite, although they’re all great quality!

6.) Wet n Wild 10-pan Eyeshadow Palettes

Wet n Wild is known for having one of the best eyeshadow formulas on the market and they’ve consistently stayed one of the most affordable as well. For example, these 10 pan palettes are only $5 each! These shadows are easy to work with, they have great pigmentation, and offer a variety of different shades to choose from.

7.) Pixi Beauty Eye Reflection Palette (Natural Beauty)

There are two shade options for these Eye Reflection palettes, but Natural Beauty is my favorite because it offers more variety between finishes. It is a more cool-toned palette, but I like that it has a variety of both mattes and shimmers. The quality is great and it makes for a perfect gift idea because it has everything needed to create an entire eyeshadow look without the addition of any other products.

8.) Makeup Revolution x The Emily Edit - The Wants Palette

This palette is a great gift option because it offers such a wide variety of shadows for only $20! The quality is amazing and the mirror is one of the best I’ve ever seen in an eyeshadow palette. This can be found in Ulta stores and even qualifies for coupons!

9.) Eos Stick Lip Balm

Everyone can use a good lip balm this time of year and the Eos stick balms are the best! They’re less than $3 each, they come in a variety of delicious scents, and they feel incredibly lightweight on the lips. I keep one with me at all times!

10.) Maybelline SuperStay Ink Crayon

Matte lip products can be incredibly dry and uncomfortable, but these Maybelline crayons have found a way around that. They’re insanely pigmented, yet are completely transfer-proof! The two shades I have are Trust Your Gut and Stay Exceptional, but there are plenty other colors to choose from and they all have such inspiring names.

Bonus: Kiss Impress Press-On Manicure

I couldn’t help but include a bonus product because these press-on nails are just so good and would make such a great stocking stuffer! There are tons of different shapes and designs to choose from, and they last an incredibly long time. They don’t use glue, so they won’t cause any damage to the natural nail. It’s easier than nail polish and more affordable than a salon!

As the beauty market continues to grow, so do the prices unfortunately. Even though these products might be considered more budget-friendly, they have the same amazing quality as much pricier options. I’ve used many of these products for years, have repurchased multiple times, and would recommend them for any beauty lover you might be shopping for!
