For the compulsive cosmetics gal

Gifts under 50 for the compulsive cosmetics gal

Buried under all my schoolwork, I hadn't realized that Christmas is upon us. I'm not so much for receiving gifts as I am for giving them, so every year I have fun creating gift lists and guides for my friends. This particular occasion I've decided to start with cosmetics, because I believe it's the easiest one. Make up stores this time of year are filled with value sets and it has been my personal experience that these are always a good buy. There's also a great variety of sample and travel sizes that are perfect for stocking stuffers. Here's what caught my eye this season:

1. Tarte's Fantastic Foursome 12 hour Amazonian Clay Blush set($39)- This has been one of the most impressive sets I've seen in a while. Each blush can run up to $24 by itself and here you have a selection of the 4 most popular shades for only $39. The pigmentation in these is incredible and the lasting power is superb!

2. OCC Lip Tars Set($50/$16 if you buy individually)- If you're looking for a vegan lipstick that just won't quit, then you have to get your hands on these. The selection of shades and the color payoff are great.  

3. Korres Lip Butter Collection($19)- These have been going around the blogger community for a quite a while and I found them quite interesting. They offer a very sheer color and some of these have a really lovely scent.

4. Urban Decay's Basic Naked Palette($27)- This palette is supposed to be the matte companion to the very famous Naked and Naked2 Palette. I think this is a perfect palette for someone who is in a more professional setting and needs something clean and classic.

5. Origins Minis($10-$17)- Origins has been a very sought after skincare brand recently, and the fact that they offer smaller versions of their most popular products is definitely a plus.
