Christmas Gift Guide ¦ Affordable Beauty

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets: The beauty world went wild when Bourjois launched their liquid lip stains this year and with good reason. Super pigmented and longlasting, any lip product addict would love to find one of these in their stocking. We particularly love the matte Nude-ist for the ultimate 90s lip.

Pixi Glow Tonic: For the skincare buff in your life, a bottle of Pixi Glow Tonic will always be appreciated. This cult product is a bit of a faff to get our hands on here but, as one of our favourite chemical exfoliators, it's well worth the hassle - trust us!

This Works Dream Team: Have we mentioned what huge fans we are of This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray? Neither of us are ever without a bottle beside our beds and this super adorable duo contains minis of both the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and the Deep Sleep Stress Less - perfect for a stressed out hostess or for ensuring the overworked one in your life catches some quality Zs this festive period!

Sally Hansen Miracle: Dee was blown away by the longevity of Sally Hansen's answer to a salon two-week mani earlier this year. Combine that stronghold wear with a super glossy finish and you've got the perfect stocking stuffer for the nail addict in your life. Oh, and you can enter to win FOUR shades right here! (Review)

Dr Bronner's Mini Soap Trio: Soap? For Christmas? Bear with us on this one. Dr Bronner's is famed for being a use-it-for-everything type product but, we particularly love it for getting make-up brushes squeaky clean. Gift this trio to the brush fiend in your life or split it up, paired with some of the brushes recommended in our Beauty Tools Gift Guide and, hey presto, three pressies in one!

Barry M Natural Glow Palette: Another doozy of a budget eyeshadow palette. It's definitely Naked-inspired but, at a fraction of the price! A perfect one for the stocking or it would make an equally lovely gift for a younger girl just getting into make-up. 

The Balm Mary Lou Manizer: This highlighter from The Balm has been on the tip of every beauty addict's tongue in 2014 and for good reason. Buttery smooth, finely milled, it delivers the perfect champagne glow. Not to mention the packaging is pretty darn cute too! 

NYX Butt Naked Palette: This little release from NYX really surprised us. While the bronzer and blushes are really nice, it's the buttery soft eye shadows that steal the show - and all for less than €30! Urban Decay eat your heart out!

Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Pencils: We talked up the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in our luxury beauty guide last week but, these Maybelline newbies are an incredibly good dupe. We love the uber vampy burgundy Berry Much - perfect for the Christmas season!
