‘Tis the season of giving…so if you haven’t done so already, I highly suggest you check out Spoiled Pretty’s Holiday Beauty Gift Guide.
To supplement my gift picks, I recently asked my fellow Daily Makeover Beauty Bloggerati to weigh in on their favorite stocking stuffers under $15, and this is what they had to say:
I love the L’Oreal Clean Artiste Makeup Remover Pen ($11). It cleans up all liquid liner mishaps in a flash and doesn’t irritate my eye area. Best of all, the fact that it’s called Clean Artiste, as opposed to simply Clean Artist, is so Hollywood Montrose from Mannequin. –Beauty Blogging Junkie
I love anything from E.L.F. (Eyes Lips Face) for stocking stuffers, because they have entire kits of makeup (for example, a standard/waterproof mascara, eye liner, and eye brightening pencil) for $3. Their individual products are only $1 each, so you could literally fill a stocking with products, without having to go over $10. Is there anything better than that? –Makeover Momma
I love the mini Sephora palettes. They offer such incredible value – this one has 8 eyeshadows, four glosses and a blush for $15! –The Jet Set Girls
I love to give essential beauty items to my step-daughter to stock her up. Yes to Carrots Lip Butter ($3.69), Gillette Venus razor and refill cartridges ($10.99-15), Neutrogena Body Oil ($13) and Pantene Pro-V 5 Minute Strengthening Mask ($4.50) are a few of my favorite stocking stuffers. –A Mom in Red High Heels
Everyone in my family loves the single note essential oils from Aveda ($13) especially the eucalyptus. There are so many ways to use them; but we keep them by the bedside and dab a few drops between our hands and inhale before bedtime. It’s part of our relaxation ritual. –The Jet Set Girls
Nude Lips is an adorable stocking stuffer for all lips – this organic cupuacu and Tahitian vanilla monoi lip balm melts at body temperature ($14) for the prettiest gloss and most kissable lips. –Talking Makeup
What are some of your go-to beauty stocking stuffers?
Dear fellow Starbucks addicts,
Just thought you’d like to know that our favorite coffee joint just added a new caffeine concoction to their holiday drink lineup: the Caramel Brulee Latte.
They combined Starbucks espresso and steamed milk with a rich caramel sauce and topped it with whipped cream and shimmery pieces of caramel topping.
Update: I just tried it and it is delish!

Amber from Beauty Blogging Junkie scored an exclusive interview with lead makeup designer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Norma Hill-Patton!
Marina from makeup loves me finds the perfect gradual self tanner to maintain her summer glow all year long.
For some Twilight fans, the books and Team Edward t-shirts just aren’t enough. So their parents have taken to buying them removable, customized “vampire veneers” that cost $250! Spoiled Pretty has the story.
