This week my daughter has been home sick so my editorial calendar has fallen to the wayside. But I did realize that Valentine’s Day is coming and I had nothing planned to share for that holiday. Blogger fail. With that in mind I also got to thinking about how this day isn’t one where people generally think “beauty”. This is usually that flowers, candy and jewelry holiday. TBH I’m not one for any of those things. I love to get them (duh) but I love getting makeup even more. In this post I’m helping you to think outside the box for gift giving and wrap up one or two beauty items for your loved one – and they’re all $25 or less!
For your convenience everything is listed alphabetically by brand name. There is a lot… because it’s impossible for me to choose things so we just buy all the things. Some are limited edition… some are not… shop early, shop often. 😉
Buxom Plump & Contour Lip Trio ($20.00). This brand has amazing lip products and this set is a must-have if you love an amped-up MLBB look. You’ll get the lipliner in Dolly Danger, the Bold Gel Lipstick in Sultry Mauve and Lip Polish in Dolly.
Drunk Elephant Hit it Off Duo ($20.00). In this duo you’ll get the Beste™ No. 9 Jelly Cleanser and whipped moisturizer. I LOVE the cream included in this set and both products are formulated for ALL skin types.
ELF Rose Gold Beauty Set ($16.00). A beautiful, on-trend rose gold makeup set that includes the Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette, Blush Gems Baked Highlighter and Natural Lip Lacquer.
Essie 4pc. Mini Nail Lacquer Set ($18.00). This particular set is from 2017 but I’m in love with the bright shade selection and Essie consistently has excellent quality polishes.
FENTY Beauty Bomb Baby Mini Lip & Face Set ($23.00). Honestly if you buy one thing from this list make it this kit. That gloss is literally everything and the highlighters (in this set you get Hu$tla Baby) are awesome for the face (and eyes and body and etc!).
First Aid Beauty Mask Diaries ($25.00). If you’re into multi-masking this set is your dream. This 4pc set includes mini-sizes of the Ultra Repair Cream, Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask, Facial Radiance Intensive Peel and the 5-in-1 Bouncy Mask. It’s normally priced much higher and the set is limited edition so scoop it up fast!
Fresh Nourishing Naturals Lip Duo ($25.00). I bought this around Christmas and I’m obsessed with the smooth feel of both products and the gorgeous tint of the Lip Treatment. A must-have!
GLAMGLOW Sexy Contours & Glow Set ($25.00). GLAMGLOW is one of my favorite brands and carries my holy grail Supermud Clearing Treatment! This set is a great deal and has two products aimed at benefiting all skin types – the original GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment and GLOWSTARTER Moisturizer.
HUDA Beauty Contour & Strobe Lip Set ($25.00). As a huge fan of HUDA Beauty lip products this set is a must-have in my book. The sets are limited edition but as of this post there are several more still available and randomly things are still coming back in stock. It’s definitely a good buy and one to pick up ASAP!
Jack Black The Balm Squad Set ($20.00). You guys know I love this lip balm! When I buy, I buy in bulk to keep them all over my house, car, in every coat… this is a great set to buy and it’s also currently on sale!
Marc Jacobs Cream & Sugar Nude Lip Trio ($25.00). A necessary lip trio for all of those that love a more natural lip on the daily. You get a mini liner, gloss and lipstick ALL in the brand new shade Cream and Sugar.
Morphe Weapons of Mass Seduction Deep Smoky Collection ($15.00). This is a great “everything you need” date-night smoky eye kit. Just add mascara!
Origins Super Stars ($20.00). Origins is a fabulous skincare brand and this set includes some best selling products for all skin types.
OUAI To Go Kit ($25.00). I love this brand and this collection has some of their best selling styling products for you to try out. You’ll want all the full-sizes also, trust.
Sephora Favorites Beachy Waves Sea Spray Collection ($24.00). With the warmer weather approaching in a few months it’s time to decide on your fave beach wave spray. This set has several of my faves and I love the smaller sizes for travel (vay-cay!).
Sigma Mini Power Haul Collection ($15.00). I love Sigma brushes and their cleaning mat is a must-have! This is the perfect kit to start out with or for travel.
Stila Glitter on the Go Liquid Eye Shadow Set ($25.00). I’m so impressed with the Stila glitters and their new shadows! I got a set of the new shadows around Christmas and I can’t recommend them enough. This is a great neutral set to get yourself addicted!
Urban Decay Troublemaker Eyeshadow Palette ($19.00). Technically this is a $39 item but it’s on SALE! You’ll get the palette and a mini-sized Troublemaker Mascara.
Weekends & Chocolate Flower Bubbles Bath Fizzies ($25.00). Who doesn’t love bath bombs?! This is a lovely glass jar full of them. It’s available in several fragrances and IMO is better than flowers and candy. Just let me relax and life is good!
Winky Lux Kitty Glam Kit ($22.00). I love Winky Lux and I just thought this bag was adorable. There is one for dogs also! In the kit you get two travel-sized products – Pink Flower Balm and Radiant Pink Strobing Balm.
What beauty gift would you love to receive for Valentine’s Day (or really ANY day)?
