Beauty Buys, Under $25

The holiday season is upon us!  For the next several weeks, I'll be focusing on all things holidays.  Today, I'm focusing on great gift ideas that won't bust your budget.  Here are five of my favorite beauty gifts under $25:

Emi-Jay Peacock Hair Ties (3 pack, $6.50)
Regular ponytail holders pull hair and leave annoying dents.  Plus they're kind of boring.  These hair ties are super cute.  They're soft and stretchy and are pretty enough that you can wear them as a bracelet when they're not holding your hair up.  They elevate the ordinary ponytail holder to a whole different level. 

Cinderella Brush with Fate Nail Polish Collection (6-piece mini-set, $24.50)
Let's be honest, no matter how old we are, we all want to be a bit of a princess.  This collection of 6 cute polishes is glittery and fun, but also wearable enough to still be taken seriously when you're wearing them.  

Sephora Collection Blinged Palette ($15)
I love this all-in-one collection. This jewel-covered palette includes eight harmonious, blendable shadows come in a range of matte and shimmering shades and the convenient slide-out drawer features five moisturizing lip colors and a pretty, pink blush. This palette also includes a mini blush brush and a mini, dual-ended shadow and lip brush for easy application on the go.

Sephora Houndstooth Brush Set ($25)
One thing I've learned over the years: you can never have enough makeup brushes!  This set includes six brushes and a pouch.  Brushes include: powder brush, blush brush, shadow brush, small shadow brush, and a brow brush/comb.

Clarins Cleansing Duo for Normal Skin ($21)
Leaves skin pristine-clean when you're on-the-go with a full-size Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed for Normal to Combination Skin and travel-size alcohol-free Toning Lotion with Camomile for Normal to Combination Skin.  This is a great duo--your skin will thank you for this gift.
