A quick list of products that will make great stocking stuffers at a variety of price points. Click through to see my recommendations. A guide for larger gifts is also on the way!


Lush Lip Scrubs - $9
Available in four delicious flavors to satisfy everyone's sweet tooth, Lush's sugar based lip scrubs are a yummy way you spoil lips, especially in the winter months when chapping and peeling are common problems [review]

Lush Creamy Candy Bubble Bar - $7.40
 A cute, multi use bubble bath with a sweet candy fragrance. Any Lush bubble bar, especially the seasonal ones would make great little gifts, but I think the scent of Creamy Candy would appeal to most girls [review]

Lush Fun Soaps - $7
A great bath gift for kids (or adults) - this soap can be used to wash hair and body, as a bubble bath, and it can be molded like Playdough. I bought this as my gift for my 7 year old niece. Available in 6 scents. [Review]

Big Sexy Hair Spray&Play Hairspray Mini - $6

Jesse's Girl Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner - $7 
I haven't had this pen form liquid yeliner for long, but I know its a winner. This eyeliner is easy to apply, long lasting, and very pigmented.

Three shades of excellent, moisturizing, buttery smooth lip glosses. Split the set up or give three glosses to one lucky lady. [review]

  1. Is the lip tar set still available? I grabbed it a month back or so, but when I went to check and see if the larger one was still at Sephora, both were gone. :(
    P.S. As much as I love the set, you get stiffed a bit because the tubes aren't all that full. I mean yeah, it'll probably take me months to even empty one, but still it is a bit of a bummer.

    1. All of the Lip Tar sets were in stock on Sephora's website when I put this post together on Sunday, and in stock in my local Sephora as of today. As for getting stiffed I kinda agree .. the four add up to be equal in amount to 1 full size Lip Tar...but for $2 more.

  2. I have not tried and Lush products yet, I'm definitely going to try that lip scrub.

    1. The Lush lip scrubs are really a fun way to spoil yourself. And I think there's a flavor to appeal to almost everyone. I really want to get the limited edition cherry pop flavored one. :3

  3. That brush set looks amazing for the price. I'm adding it to my Christmas list right now!

  4. A lot of these products are on my Christmas wishlist! I love the NYX butter gloss in particular and its lovely shades (not to mention some of their yummy names).
