Sephora Gift Guide - Makeup Under $10

 


Hi, friends! As the holidays are approaching, how many of you have started holiday shopping yet? I know, it’s only September, but hey, it’s never too early to start!

Sephora just released their holiday gift sets, but unfortunately none of them are under $10. However, that doesn’t mean there already isn’t a ton of awesome things to buy from Sephora that are under $10!

I thought it would be a cool idea to browse the website and pick out the things I thought were the best gifts at every price point. (Gifts for yourself or gifts for others – no judgment here.) This list will consist of the top 10 makeup products available at Sephora for $10 or less! (Skincare will be its own post!) Some of you may not believe that they even have 10 things for $10 or less, but they do!

The items on this list are the perfect “something small” to show someone you care about them (assuming they like makeup, of course). They would be perfect as stocking stuffers or as small gifts for your friends and co-workers.

If you’re reading this before 11/19/18, be sure to take advantage of the annual Sephora Fall VIB Sale! More information on the sale can be found here.

So, without further ado, let’s get started!

This post is NOT sponsored by Sephora – my world just revolves around makeup and I want to share my world with you. However, affiliate links may be used in this post. Read my full disclosure here. All photos are from the Sephora website.

Also, any time you are planning on making an online purchase, don’t forget to use Ebates! AND SEPHORA IS A PARTICIPATING STORE YAY! Use Ebates every time you order something online so you can get a bit of your money back! (Some stores even offer in-store cash back) I’ve made over $500 in cash back from Ebates since I started under 2 years ago and I literally only buy makeup LOL so if you’re not using it, you’re totally missing out! I wrote a review on Ebates when I first started using it here.

Benefit Cosmetics - Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation Mini Size | $10

benefit-cosmetics-hello-happy-soft-blur-shade-1-mini-fo-d-2018042714584038_616168.jpg

I absolutely love when brands offer mini sizes of foundations because sometimes it’s just not possible to physically go to a store to get a sample. And how cute is this packaging?! I’m sure any beauty lover wouldn’t mind trying out a new foundation!

 

Sephora Collection - Colorful Face Powders – Blush, Bronze, Highlight, & Contour | $14 on sale for $7

I’ve tried a handful of Sephora Collection products and I was pleasantly surprised by how well made they are, so I have no doubt that these face powders are great. And they’re rated over 4 stars on Sephora! They’re currently on sale for $7, but I don’t know how long they will be, so go get them now!

 

Sephora Collection - Colorful Eyeshadows | $5-8

I actually really like the Sephora Collection eyeshadows even though I’ve oddly never talked about them on this blog! They’re honestly just really solid eyeshadows especially for the price. Bonus - casing is made to easily de-pot them to make your own custom palette! Who hates buying an entire palette only to really use a few colors? Make your own with these!

Shop on Sephora: $5 Sale Shades | $8 Shades
 

Sephora Collection - Long Lasting Kohl Pencil | $10

Another solid product from Sephora Collection. This pencil is great for the waterline and works really well for the price. It comes in other colors, too! Sephora Collection also has a waterproof pencil that looks very similar to this one, but be warned that some people are sensitive to waterproof formulas, so it depends who you’re shopping for!

 

Sephora Collection - Miniature Palette | $10

Umm, how amazing are these mini palettes?! 6 shades for $10 is a value that can’t be beat! And with the little photos accompanied with directions, it’s the perfect gift for someone just getting into makeup. I would have totally loved to get one of these in my stocking when I was little!

 

Kiehl’s - Lip Balm #1 | $9.50

kiehl's lip balm #1

This is seriously one of the best lip balms I’ve ever used. It’s perfect for those cold winter nights because it really does an amazing job in healing dry, cracked lips. I’m a huge fan of wearing it to sleep!

 

Sephora Collection - Mesh Sponge Case | $8

For anyone that has traveled with their makeup sponges, you know the struggle of doing your makeup before leaving, then washing your sponge, and then wondering how you’re going to pack a damp sponge. In the past, I’d just pack a brand new one then toss it when packing to come back home. But, not everyone has that luxury! Especially if you’re just going to stay somewhere overnight - you don’t want to use a brand new sponge for just one night. This solves the problem. Put your damp sponges in, hook it onto your purse/bag and let it air dry! No more worrying about gross moldy sponges.

 

Tarte - Tarteist Pro Lash Adhesive | $9

Rated as one of the best of beauty in 2017 by Allure, this is the perfect little something for the false lash lover in your life! Sure, it might be a little practical and unexciting, but it’ll sure be put to good use!

 

Sephora Collection - Perfect & Restore Sponge and Solid Brush Cleaner Set | $14 on sale for $9

sephora collection perfect & restore set

I love using a solid brush cleaner and this one is actually the one that got me into using them! In my opinion, it does a way better job of getting the brushes/sponges clean than a liquid cleaner because I like to rub the brushes/sponges against it.

Also available: Sephora Collection - Solid Clean: Solid Brush Cleaner Mini Size | $8 (cleaner only)

 

Sephora Collection - Beauty On The Fly Bag | $4.95

How cute is this little bag? It’s the perfect pouch to put beauty necessities in and then toss it into a bag/purse! It’ll be especially perfect if the beauty lover in your life travels a lot - perfect to throw into the hand-carry bag!

 

And that’s it for my under $10 Sephora makeup shopping guide! Did it help give you some ideas for your holiday shopping? I sure hope so! I know I’ll be picking up a few of these items for small gifts (or maybe for myself hehe.)
