So, you’ve gotten most of your holiday shopping out of the way, but you’re still looking for a couple smaller items? Or maybe, like me, you’re a last minute shopper and put it all off until now. Allow Liza, Christine, and I to recommend our top five cruelty-free stocking stuffers, conveniently available at the drugstore.
WET N WILD Color Icon 8-Pan Palette in Comfort Zone Let’s start with a reliable favorite. The Wet n Wild Color Icon Palette in Comfort Zone has earned a sort of cult status among budget beauty enthusiasts. And it’s easy to see why. The mix of shimmery-sheen to all out glitter, the wearable yet far-from-boring shades, the beautifully pigmented smooth texture… And did I mention it’s $5?
FLOWER Beauty Nail’d It Nail Lacquers OK, so the FLOWER Beauty Nail’d It Nail Lacquers are only sold at Walmart, but it is at drugstore price points. The colors and quality are totally on par with higher end brands. I usually struggle with getting a neat finish, but this formula and brush makes it easy. Pictured above are NP 2 That’s Just Dan-De-Loin (my review), which I received from FLOWER, and NP17 Make My Daylilly, which I purchased myself.
MILANI Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Wear In the world of jumbo eye shadow pencils, Milani Shadow Eyez rank among the best I’ve tried. Milani has been releasing number of new shades lately, my favorites being those in the the LE Naturally Chic Collection (my review). They’re creamy, smooth, richly pigmented, and last until you take them off.
EOS Lip Balm Spheres The EOS Smooth Lip Balm Spheres‘s cute packaging makes them a fun stocking stuffer. Plus, lip balms are always a safe gift, and these are particularly well-formulated, effective ones.
ECO TOOLS Day to Night Clutch Set I reviewed the LE Eco Tools Day to Night Clutch Set earlier this year (my review) and when I started brainstorming good drugstore gifts, it immediately came to mind. Happily, it’s still available. All the brushes in this set are high quality and are basic shapes that most everyone would find useful. The round powder brush remains a staple in my everyday makeup routine.
