Whether you’re planning on giving the gift of beauty for the holidays, or searching for some new products to try for yourself, beauty kits are the easiest and most budget friendly way to find what you’re looking for. While some kits are out of range for us beauty junkies on a budget, I’ve taken out the hard work for you and gathered our top Trend Hungry approved beauty kits that give you the most bang for your beloved buck (all kits are under $50!).
1. e.l.f. Studio Favorites Gift Set, $25.00.
I’m a HUGE supporter and believer in e.l.f. products. Extremely affordable ($3 gel liner anyone?), and quality products make it easy for me to fill my cart within minutes while shopping their site. This kit pieces together seven products, including all of my personal favorites, as well as e.l.f.’s best selling products for a teeny tiny price of $25.00!
2. Benefit Primed for Lovin’ kit, $42.00.
I’ll start by saying this kit includes Benefit’s “they’re real!” mascara (full size!). If you haven’t tried this mascara yet, you MUST. Hands down best product out there for full, false looking lashes. Not only do you get the mascara (a $23 value), but you also get their outstanding POREfessional primer ($30 value). The kit already pays for itself with these two products alone, but your ALSO get High Beam highlighter ($26 value) and a Sugarbomb lipgloss sample.
3. Smashbox Try It Kit, $19.00.
5 products for less than 20 bucks? This is a great starter kit to test out Smashbox’s most popular products. They are best known for their amazing collection of primers, and this kit lets you try out not only the best selling foundation primer, but you also get a lid primer. Top it off with purse friendly Full Exposure mascara, Limitless eye liner, and a Lip Enhancing gloss.
4. Lorac TANtalizer Glow to Go Collection, $25.00.
Going on vaca? Wishing you were going on vaca? Want to look like you’ve gone on vaca? Fake it (an island tan that is) till you make it with this stunner of a bronzing collection from Lorac. Bronzer, body luminizer, gloss, and three warm shadow shades get you in the beachy mood and give you that sun kissed glow even in the dead of winter.
5. Stila Holiday Essentials Kit, $19.00.
For a brilliant and beautiful holiday look, snag this must have kit from Stila which includes liquid liner, the perfect red liquid lipstick, and a gorgeous shimmery shadow. All of these products are sample size, so they will fit perfectly in your party clutch and are great for on the go. At such a great value, you can pick one up for you and spread the holiday cheer a friend (or two).
