Stocking Stuffers for Beauty Lovers

Written on December 18, 2013 at 4:49 pm , by

Who doesn’t get a little giddy over a sock full of miniature goodies? No one does mini sized items better than beauty brands, which is why we’ve rounded up some of our favorite bite size beauty treats that are guaranteed to make any woman on your list happy this holiday.

Fresh Sugar Kisses Mini Lip Trio ($28, sephora.com)
Kiss dry lips buh-bye! Each tube is packed with hydrating sugar (sweet!), SPF 15 and sheer color (in pink, red and brown) so that lips are both pretty and protected.

Boscia Pink Peppermint Blotting Linens ($5, boscia.com)
Leave the shine for the tinsel—and dab away excess oil on your t-zone with these peppermint-scented blotting sheets. Each sparkly, pink package comes with 100 sheets, which reduce shine without messing up your holiday makeup (because we know how hard you worked on it).

Benefit Show Me The Love Set ($36, benefitcosmetics.com)
Every makeup bag could use this set of essentials. Primer, mascara and blush come in this cute pop art tin, which doubles as the perfect makeup brush holder.

L’Occitane Hand Indulgences Set ($28, sephora.com)
Hand cream is a good go-to gift and L’Occitaane has made it especially easy to give this holiday season with this set of three limited edition hand creams. In jasmine, violet and rose scents plus a formula made with 20 percent shea butter, the lucky recipient is going to have a hard time choosing which one to slather on first.

Marc Jacobs Rollerball Trio Gift Set ($39, nordstrom.com)
Meet a fragrance lover’s dream: each fragrance has a slightly different take on floral (think daisy, musk and jasmine) and comes in a rollerball applicator that’s perfect to toss in your gym bag or purse.

Tarte Rare Gem Limited-Edition Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler ($19, tartecosmetics.com)
Because when else can you justify buying a purple blinged out eyelash curler?! The sparkly beauty tool also comes with a tube of Tarte’s Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara so your lashes will stand out when standing under the mistletoe.
