Best Buys, Under $50

Yesterday, I gave you some ideas for great beauty gifts under $25.  Today, let's up the budget!  Here are a few of my faves under $50.

Laura Mercier 'Rich Berries' Mini Lip Glacé Collection ($48)
I have this collection and I love it.  The colors are insanely flattering. Tailored to shade preference, the Rich Berries Collection offers bold, bright hues in deep rose, red and plum shades. Wear solo for a soft-shimmer tint, mix together to create your own personal shade or layer with your favorite lip color.

Marc Jacobs Rollerball Trio ($38)
Rollerballs are awesome.  They're an economical way to really road test a fragrance, they're easy to use, and they're compact and a snap to store.  This set includes three killer Marc Jacobs fragrances, Daisy, Daisy Eau de Toilette, and Oh, Lola!  Daisy is a sparkling floral bouquet, spirited and fresh, wrapped in comfort and warmth. Daisy Eau de Toilette is the whimsical interpretation of the original Daisy fragrance. Its light, woody base infuses a subtle but sharp glimmer of musk for an unexpected twist of radiance. Oh, Lola! bursts open with a bright and thrilling effervescence, harnessing the playful scent of peony at its heart.

Urban Decay Naked Palette ($50)
Do I really need to tell you about this cult-worthy palette?  It's freaking amazing. This long, lean, and seductive case comes packed with 12 gorgeous neutrals that work for absolutely everyone. Shades range from delicate champagne to gritty gunmetal, and feature five stunning new shades. A variety of textures, including glitter, shimmer, and matte, ensure that you'll never get bored. This versatile palette can go from office appropriate to a night on the town. The mirrored case also features a new professional-quality, cruelty-free Good Karma Eyeshadow Brush, plus a travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion in original formula.

NARS Andy Warhol Photo Booth Nail Polish Gift Set ($35)
Andy Warhol believed a trademark look was essential to achieve superstar status. Certain to make its mark as a cult classic, NARS' exclusive polish set smolders in camera-ready shades from tomato-soup red to scintillating silver.  These colors are amazing and this would be a great gift.

M·A·C All For Glamour - Gorgeous Bronze Face Kit ($49.50)
MAC is legendary.  Here's a great way to give someone some of the best makeup on the market. The modern, high-luxe compact too pretty not to show off, includes Bronzing Powder in Golden, eyeshadows in Hearts-a-Flutter, Romance Me and Shadowy Lady and lipsticks in Headturner and Barely Lit.
