Whether you are making up a stocking for a friend or a daughter you want to keep it pretty budget friendly because filling up a little red sock can become rather expensive so I have gathered a few of my top budget buys of 2014 that I think every beauty lover will adore.
The Bold Lip Lover: Maybelline Colour Drama Velvet Intense are literally the winner of 2014 in my eyes, these little pigmented pencil like lipsticks are perfect for anyone you know who loves bold lips. Yes they do actually do less intense shades but if you are looking for a great staying power lip product then you need these. My fave is 'In With Coral'. €6.49
The Blushaholic: NYC Cream BB blushes are so gorgeous. They literally glide over the skin and produce amazing pigmentation. They are easy to use and dry to a powder finish so they are guaranteed to give you long wear. My fave shade is 'Never Sleeping Pink'. €3.49
The Skincare Fiend: Know someone who loves a good face mask, well lets face it we all do. This one from Quick Fix Facials is perfect mask for acne prone skin, its gentle, helps with blemishes and doesn't leave the skin tight. If you don't have acne prone skin fear not as they come in other formulas to suit your needs. €6.49
The Nail Lover: Everyone loves a good set of quirky false nails. I know myself that I suck at nail art and so rely on false nails to get my nails looking bang on trend. This set from Primark are super affordable and are great quality. They offer non Christmas ones if you know someone who isn't that festive. €1.50
The Brush Fanatic: Every wondered around and needed to fix up your makeup but have no brush? Real Techniques have you covered. This wind up kabuki brush is amazing quality and super soft. Also its pink what more could you want. €14.50
The Palette Lover: Again NYC have this great little eyeshadow quad that is so impressive for the little amount that it cost. The palette comes with 4 neutral toned shadows so it is perfect for everyday. Highly pigmented and buttery in texture this is sure to brighten someone's day. €3.49
The Lipgloss Lover: I don't even like lipgloss and these are incredible. First off they smell incredible and they are super buttery so they aren't your run in the mill sticky glosses. The pigmentation is great, they last a good amount of time on the lips and they are just gorgeous. Fave shades are Peaches & Cream & Tiramisu. €6.49
The False Lash Addict: We all love a good set of false lashes but sometimes if your a regularly wearer I can imagine it gets rather expensive. So good old Primark have these super cute set that are actually good quality. I mean for €1.50 you wouldn't expect much, but you would be surprised.
So there are my top picks for a beauty lover's stocking, anything here take your fancy?
