Name one thing better than holiday beauty gift sets. Go on, we’ll wait. The holidays are, in our opinion, the most exciting time of the year for many reasons, but makeup is high on our list. Nearly every brand has an array of offerings meant to get us more excited than ever before: carousels of lippies, confetti poppers with makeup inside, holiday ornaments full of product and more. So, instead of spending your entire paycheck on pricey holiday gift sets, we’re here to inform you that there are a ton of beauty product stocking stuffers under $30 that will make your beauty-lovin’ friends and family freak out. We rounded them up, ahead.
We can all use a little pick-me-up in the mani department. With the Ace of Shades deep burgundy red nail polish hidden in their stocking, it will be hard not to stop everything and have a little DIY mani session right then and there.
The gold foil packaging makes it hard not to rip this festive lip duo open on the spot. Inside is a velvety Suede Matte Lipstick and matching Suede Matte Lip Liner to help them pull off the perfect rich statement lip for dinner that night or New Year’s Eve.
The Winter Wonderglam Mini Eye Kit features three cult-favorite eye products from Maybelline New York to help your giftee create an eye-catching look this holiday season. It’s a great present for anyone looking to discover their new favorite mascara or for tried-and-true fans of the products.
For a lipstick that’s almost too pretty to use, the cult-favorite Lancôme Absolu Rouge lipstick in a sparkling silver, holiday-edition packaging fits the bill. Just wait to see their face light up when they find this pretty little tube at the bottom of their stocking.
From the tree to the lights outside, the holidays are all about sparkle. Now with the limited-edition Seeking Sugar set from Urban Decay (with a Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner and Perversion Mascara inside), your giftee’s makeup can match.
For the jetsetter on your shopping list, this hair-care gift set is the perfect match. Inside a cute little pouch is a Mane Magic 10-in-1 Shampoo, Conditioner and Primer.
We can all use another brush set, especially when it comes to eyeshadow. This four-piece gift set from E.l.f. Cosmetics has a blender brush, eyeshadow “C” brush, angled brush and eyebrow duo brush.
If they haven’t discovered the magic of a lash primer yet, get ready to blow their mind with this glitzy stocking stuffer. The Lash Paradise Primer paired with the Lash Paradise Mascara is a recipe for voluptuous, feathery-soft lashes.
If you change out your candles or fragrances for the holiday season, why not your deodorant? This limited edition holiday scent from Nala smells like winter spice — a blend of cinnamon, sweet orange and cloves.
