img_1287-2We’re now less than a week from Christmas, so it’s time for some last minute beauty gift suggestions plus ideas of what to put in those stockings.  The best part:  each one is less than $15 USD!

Let’s get straight to it and begin with the stocking stuffers that would also be a nice reasonably priced gift for a coworker or friend.


First up are Olivia Garden Hair Brushes*.  The Holiday Gem brush comes in red or white, work with any hair type, and are great for anyone.  They’re perfect for your handbag or backpack, travel bag, gym bag, car, desk, or just about anywhere.

Olivia Garden also has a convenient folding On-The-Go brush as well as excellent brushes in other styles.


You can find Olivia Garden at Ulta in store or online in the U.S.  For other locations, or if you’re not in the states?  Check out her website at on where to buy her brushes.

Next up are two kits from e.l.f. cosmetics:
