5 Stocking Stuffers for Beauty Lovers

It's that time of year, the time when gift giving is upon us and the budget you want to spend is
varied so I have put together stockings stuffers (or just small in size gifts, really) that fit a range of budgets, whether this is a main gift or the little something extra I would be pleased to receive any of these.
Tarte Gifted Mascara - Mini: Priced at $10, this mini tube of the Gifted mascara is perfect for the makeup lover or even someone just getting into wearing makeup as it give them a chance to try a new formula in a mini size. What I like about Tarte is that their minis work as well as the full size version, with other brands I have found them to not always work as well as the full sized counterparts.
Lush First Snow: Priced at $7.95 and inspired by the movie Frozen this dusting powder is great for young and old as long as they enjoy a citrus-y, bright, champagne smell and a pit of frosty, silver/white glitter (food grade glitter so it is eco friendly) that leaves skin with the twinkle of freshly fallen snow. Ps, there is a bath bomb and a lotion with the same scent.
Eylure Pro-Lash Individuals: Priced at $4.99 these are for the advanced beauty enthusiast, as it does take a touch of skill in application. There is a permanent glue included that last about 3-4 weeks of wear or you can use temporary glue, which is my preferred method as it is less damaging on your lashes.
Marc Jacobs Honey Perfume: Priced at $24 this is a great way to give a friend new fragrance as a full bottle could be risky. I also think this scent would be nice as it is fresh, fruity, with a smooth woody smell. It's a fragrance that I think most people would like and is light and not over powering. It's also travel friendly, so it works if the gift recipient is visiting from out of town. 
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms: Priced at $39 this is the ultimate little gift. Now I do think this little number is not necessarily priced for stocking stuffing, but it is a cute, small (in size) gift. Charlotte Tilbury screams luxury which is a great thing to scream when you're a gift. This set of three mini lipstick are so adorable and small enough you could tote around the whole set in your bag and it takes up about as much room as one and a half full sized tubes of lipstick. The colors are lovely and the formula is amazing. You could also split up these little tubes or lipstick and tie there ribbons onto the bow of another gift as a little something extra. (I may recommend you order a set for yourself too.)

Happy Holidays and I hope this gives you a few ideas on gifts this season or just adds to your
own collection! Which of these beauty items would you want in your stocking? Tell me in the comments, I'd love to know what you'd be interested in. If you enjoyed this holiday post click here to see my cute and eco-friendly gift wrapping guide.
