I’m not sure about you, but I think beauty products make the very best stocking stuffers! They’re small, but are some of the best gifts you can get (and give!) I’ve rounded up my very favorite beauty products that are sure to bring joy to your favorite lady’s stocking. (And even to yours, you know, because we all shop for our own stocking stuffers…right?)
I used to be a Clarisonic fanatic, and then I tried Clinique’s sonic brush, and I’m officially converted. If you’re on the hunt for gifts for beauty product junkies (who always want the latest and greatest) they’re definitely going to love this! A few reasons why I love it so much: it’s much smaller, lighter, and you have to charge it like once every three months!
2. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair
I’ve received a lot of questions from my fellow mid-late twenty/thirty something ladies asking for the best anti-aging serums. I can’t say I’ve tried THAT many, but this is definitely one that stands out. It’s not cheap, but a little goes a long way, and it’s totally worth the price tag.
Another hall of famer on my beauty product list–perfect for the girl who is obsessing over her skin. This magic formula event out skin tone, clears acne scars, and even diminishes freckles. (Although, I don’t know why anyone would want to diminish their adorable freckles, but that seems to be a pain point for many ladies.)
When winter weather takes it’s toll on my skin, it gets horribly dry and chapped, resulting in a very unfavorable flaking off (ew) result when applying foundation. The best defense? Primer! I’ve tried dozens of brands, and this one always stands out as a frontrunner.
This heavenly body butter is worth every penny. I love all of Kiehls products–their lotions especially, but this is definitely the best and most luxurious of them all.
This multi-purpose, cream to powder formula highlights, contours, and adds the perfect amount of color to cheekbones, lips, and eyes. It comes in shades from sheer shimmer to bronze to the perfect pinks. Favorite shades: Copacabana, Orgasm, Na Poli Coast.
One of the best longwear lipsticks around–I have this formula in several different shades. I love how matte it is, and it stays on incredibly well (especially when paired with the Pro Longwear Lip Liner below!)
I’ve loved this scent for years. I mean, literally–years. Perfume is really hard to buy for others, as it’s such a personal preference, but I’ve never heard of anyone not loving this light, fresh, and subtle fragrance. I love this gift set mini that comes in an adorable ornament–it’s the perfect size for a gift!
Another one of my lipstick staples–NARS Matte Lip Crayon! My favorite is the shade, “Cruella” but also love “Bolero” and “Dragon Girl”.
The secret to long-lasting lipstick is to fill your lips in with this lip liner. Try to buy the shade closest to the lipstick you plan to layer over the top–I promise, it’ll last you hours. It’s magical. (Even better, prep lips with MAC lip primer beforehand.)
