18 Dec Affordable Beauty Gifts For Her
Check out these beauty gifts for her.
Are you shopping for a travel addict this holiday season? While many would immediately gravitate to things like travel accessories and luggage, I think beauty products are the ultimate gift for frequent fliers. After all, traveling is terrible for your skin and a long flight leaves you looking tired (hello, under eye circles) and feeling like you’re in major need of a hot shower. Travel lovers rarely splurge on themselves because they’d rather save up for the next flight – so when you give them something to treat themselves with, you’re truly giving a gift they’ll appreciate, but would never buy on their own! Here are five gift ideas for those jetsetting beauty lovers on your list:
Japonesque Pixelated Color Eye Shadow Palette – $38 at Ulta
When you’re traveling, there’s no time for a complete make up routine. But everyone likes to get a little glammed up for a night out on the town, and this lightweight palette from Japonesque is all you’ll need to create a bold evening look in seconds. The color selection is great, and the shadows highly pigmented. Plus, they’re long lasting, meaning you won’t have to tote this thing around with you and keep reapplying.
Patcholgy Hydrate FlashMasque Facial Sheets – $50 at Neiman Marcus
Frequent fliers will love the packable Patchology Hyrdrate FlashMasque facial sheets as a way to fix dried out, jet lagged skin fast. The masks’ material accelerates the delivery of ingredients in just five minutes for dewy, moisture-balanced skin. This mega-dose of moisture creates the perfect canvas for make up – fantastic for a quick pick-me-up after a red eye flight! The mask’s ingredients include hyaluronic acid to even out skin tone, arginine to encourage collagen production and betaine for long lasting hydration. They even smell delicious, too: Lychee, Soft Rose & Orris notes are both an East and West accord, blending Asian fruit with a soft, modern floral that is feminine and refreshing.
EOS Lip Balm – $2.99 at Target
Lip balm is a great stocking stuffer for anyone – you can never have enough, especially in the winter! EOS offers stylish, sphere-shaped lip balms in fun, bright colors. But they’re not all about the aesthetics: the new Visibly Soft balms are enriched with natural conditioning oils, moisturizing shea butter and antioxidant vitamins C and E. And even if your recipient doesn’t have a tropical getaway planned this winter, the Coconut Milk flavor will transport them with its yummy scent.
Edge ICONIC Make Up – $16 to $22 at Dillard’s
Any beauty addict loves to try new products, and the Edge ICONIC make up line from Dillard’s, which debuted this year, has already received rave reviews from beauty bloggers thanks to its high-end look mixed with affordable prices. Two of the best items for gifting are the lipsticks and the blush thanks to their ultra cool packaging. The lipstick is high shine and leaves lips looking soft and hydrated, while the blush is sheer and luminous for an instant natural-looking glow. A few fun items from this new collection will make the perfect additions to your giftee’s travel make up bag.
Foreo LUNA™ Holiday Cleansing Collection – $199 at Sephora
Traveling wreaks havoc on the skin, and if you have a splurge-worthy jetsetter on your holiday shopping list, the Foreo LUNA Holiday Cleansing Collection is the ultimate gift. The Foreo LUNA is a unique device that pulsates as you use it to gently dislodge dirt and make up from pores – the ultimate in cleansing. The holiday kit also comes complete with three full-size Boscia products that are perfect for combination skin types. The 5 oz Purifying Cleansing Gel gently cleanses while maintaining natural moisture, while the Oil-Free Nightly Hydration offers weightless hydration through the night. The Vitamin C Brightening Hydrogel Mask brightens, firms and hydrates the skin – great for some R&R after your recipient returns from a long trip!
