Holiday Gift Guide: Budget Friendly Gifts | Clozette
When it comes to giving gifts for Christmas, it's not always the price of the gift that matters, but the amount of thought and effort put in the gift. In Part One of our Budget Friendly Gift Guide, we covered all things fashion. This time, we've gone all makeup-obsessed for Part Two!

So if you have a makeup loving friend who loves all things makeup but you're on a tight budget or are just looking for small makeup items perfect for stocking stuffers, then we've got the gift guide for you--featuring quality makeup at a steal!


Just because you're on a tight budget doesn't mean you can't gift quality makeup. This Lancome Sensational Eye Effects single eyeshadow pot would make any makeup-loving girl happy.

Who knew that a little pink sponge could do such wonders on how your foundation looks on your face. This little gem is designed to give you a finish that looks perfectly airbrushed no mater which foundation you use. Who wouldn't love that?

Got a girl friend who's still on the hunt for the perfect eye primer? Surprise her by throwing this Eye Basics Primer from Laura Mercier in her stocking. Not only does it create the perfect canvas for smokey eyes, but it can also be used as an all-over lid colour for basic, nude eye looks. Best thing about it: it has skin-friendly ingredients!

Mascaras make great stocking stuffers. After all, with its short shelf-life once opened, one can never have enough mascaras ready on hand. This NYX Le Frou Frou Boudoir mascara is great drugstore mascara for longer, fuller lashes that remains smudge-free through the day.

If you really want to cheer someone up this holiday season, gift them a shiny lipgloss. There's just something about adding a pop of shine to one's lips that somehow instantly brightens up the day. So if you've got a friend who needs a little pick-me-upper, this Magnificent Metals lip gloss from stila would be the perfect item to quickly throw into their stocking.

Did you know that dry and dehydrated skin are actually two different skin conditions? Dry skin refers to skin that has less oil, and typically feels tight and stretched after a shower, while dehydrated skin has less moisture in the outermost layer of the epidermis which manifests in rough, flaky skin.

Soothe and nourish dry and dehydrated skin with the rich Melvita L’Argan Bio Organic Body Oil in Cream. Made from 100% organic cold pressed argan oil and enriched with nourishing sunflower oil and beeswax it melts into the skin leaving it soft and supple. Its high concentration of fatty acids helps rebuild the hydrolipidic film that locks in the moisture making your skin smooth like velvet. Apply this lush product immediately after your shower and your skin will feel intensely hydrated and comfortable all day long.

The L’Argan Bio range also includes a Velvet Hand Cream and Gentle Shower Gel. Shop the entire range of skincare at
