Christmas is approaching fast, I can almost hear those sleigh bells already! How are you getting on with your Christmas shopping? Are you organised with your gifts and ready to go, or struggling knowing what to buy for people? Whether you're putting together a stocking for someone or are looking for some inexpensive pieces to include as part of a main present, these are all brilliant products that cost under £5 each. Even if the person you're buying for isn't a beauty fanatic in the same way that us bloggers are these are still nice things to receive as gifts, and whether it's for your friends or relatives they'll surely go down well with any female you're buying for this Christmas.
Lush is typically quite expensive especially for the full gift sets, but there are a few little inexpensive items you could pick up. For example a 100ml bottle of Snow Fairy is £3.50 and Father Christmas bath bombs are £3.25 each, and would be lovely as part of a main present. Their lip scrub comes in at just over a fiver, this is a great product to banish dry lips at this time of year!
Who wouldn't want to find a couple of Barry M Nail Paints in their Christmas stocking? There are lots of pretty glitter finishes which are great for Christmas, as well as your typical brights, pastels and darker colours. Barry M Nail Paints are usually £3, but Superdrug's ongoing '3 for 2' offer means you can get three for £6. So they work out at £2 each!
If you know the person you're buying for wears blush or is new to makeup and would appreciate a new product to try, you can't go wrong with these compact little blushes by Sleek. There are ten colours to choose from, and the product itself is beautiful quality.
Everyone loves Soap and Glory products, and they're always popular Christmas gifts. They definitely have the edge over other brands with their cute packaging, and at just £5 these would be perfect to pop into a Christmas stocking. Figs and Rouge also do lip balms in pretty tins using all natural ingredients, if that's the type of thing your recipient is into.
MUA palettes contain twelve excellent quality and highly pigmented shadows. Whether your recipient loves bright and bold colours, pretty pastels or likes to play it safe with neutrals there are so many different palettes available you're bound to find one they'll like.
