Beauty Steals and Splurges: 12 Products You Need this Christmas

I love gifting beauty products as Christmas presents! Ulta has the best deals during the holiday season (sorry if you’re a Sephora gal), and I usually go crazy buying stocking stuffers and splurge items. I’ve included many items I own already in this list, because they are just that great, along with a few others that are currently in my cart. If you’re stuck on what to buy your girlfriend for Christmas, makeup is always a great choice.

  1. Tula Insta Bright Mask $26: Would make a great stocking stuffer!
  2. ABH Glow Kit $24 (BLACK FRIDAY DEAL) or $40: This is such a steal! ABH products are amazing quality and these highlighters are so pigmented. $24 for 4??? Grab one while you can!
  3. OPI Nail Polish $5 (BLACK FRIDAY DEAL): Love OPI colors. Grab “OPI Funny Bunny” for a great neutral or “Lincoln Park After Dark” if you’re into darker colors.
  4. CHANEL Mademoiselle Perfume $90+ (is in select Ulta stores): I bought this as a gift for myself after finishing grad school and I’m obsessed! It’s a splurge for sure, but the scent is amazing and definitely makes me feel more of an adult. Goodbye middle school Juicy Couture perfume!!!
  5. First Aid Beauty Ulta Repair Cream $30: My sister recently recommended this to me, so I’m super excited to try it!
  6. Morphe 9pc Brush Set $19.50 (BLACK FRIDAY DEAL) or $39: If your girlfriend, sister, best friend, mom, etc. looks like they might need a new set of makeup brushes, this is a great set at a great price point!
  7. LovingTan 2 Hour Express Self-Tanner $40: Love this stuff! I use it quite regularly and the color is great. It doesn’t leave streaks and, unlike other self-tanners, doesn’t have an overwhelming smell.
  8. Jade Roller $12: I’ve been wanting to start using jade rollers to decrease puffiness in my face for a while now! Grabbing this one on Amazon for myself and maybe my sisters! It would make a great stocking stuffer.
  9. Buxom 6pc Lip Kit $40: Buxom lip products are some of my favorite. They make your lips look so plump!
  10. Petite Heat Naked Palette $15: I need this! This would be the perfect palette for spicing up your everyday makeup routine.
  11. Lorac PRO Palette $44: My go-to eyeshadow palette!
  12. No7 Early Defense Skincare System $56.99: Mom bought me this last Christmas and I love it! It’s never too early to start preventive skin care regimens!
