Beauty: [noun] The quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit.
When you read the definition, it’s little wonder why we’re so drawn to beautiful people and things. And we’re not just talking about the physical. This attraction applies to the inner allure and grace that can be almost spellbinding when it hits you. With the holiday season upon us, we’re all seeking out that magic in a bid to bring back the sparkle after a challenging year and sprinkle it over our loved ones, too.
If you’re looking for a gorgeous gift for a beautiful friend this year (but you also want to keep your credit card happy) then you’re in luck. We created a spreadsheet and asked the Camille Styles team to add all of their favorite beauty products so we could compile the ultimate beauty gifts for under $100. But be warned, you’ll want them for yourself too.
If you haven’t tried this game-changing twofer beauty tool then it’s high time you did. Honestly, it gives you a salon-worthy blowout in zero time and it’s half the price. Buy one for yourself and your friend or loved one this year and save yourself major money.
Since we’re all spending more time at home these days we’re also looking for tools that can treat our skin and give us that much-needed self-care moment we crave. Give the gift of smooth skin with this dermaplaning tool—it totally changed Camille’s skin.
This lip sleeping mask is always on every editor’s must-have beauty product list and with good reason—it works! Apparently, the impossible dewy softness is a result of the Laneige Moisture Wrap™ technology with hyaluronic acid and minerals which form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients. All we can say is, sold!
There is so much to love about Chantecaille. From their skincare to their makeup, everything has been given the attention to detail we expect from our modern beauty brands. This lip veil is quite possible the perfect nude hue and a must-have for everyday wear (from zoom calls to that grocery run or a social-distanced coffee).
If there’s one thing we’ve come to expect from all beauty brands moving forward it’s clean ingredients that don’t compromise on quality or efficacy. Tata Harper ticks all those boxes and we’re just in love with almost everything they do but this cream blush really is the perfect little pop of color.
We’ve tried a lot of hair care brands at CS HQ but nothing works as hard as Olaplex. This hair perfector really does what it says—repairs, strengthens, and protects—to ensure your locks are luscious and vibrant. Now, that’s a gift we all want to receive.
We’ve never met a more perfect eyeshadow palette than the Voyageur from Nars. Honestly, have you ever seen a prettier group of earthy-toned natural hues? We think not. These shades look good on everyone, too.
With our stress and anxiety levels on high this year, we’re all looking for ways to enhance our rest and encourage sweet Z’s. Not only will you have sweet dreams with the Slip silk pillowcase but you’ll also wake up with a smile on your face after having the best beauty sleep of your life. Okay, so we’re exaggerating slightly but we really rate this pillowcase!
Just seeing Drunk Elephant and Dewy together in one sentence is enough to get us excited. This is for the skincare-obsessed friend or loved one who is just as addicted to Nam Vo #glowjobs.
Take your self-care routine to the next level with this purifying mud mask. Why? Well, the question is, what doesn’t this mask do? It hydrates, draws out dirt, oil, and impurities while delivering moisture and vitamins all at once. We love a multi-tasking product.
We could wax lyrical about how life-changing this product is but we’ll let the clinical studies speak for themselves. The high potency lactic acid treatment is proven to plump the look of fine lines and wrinkles in as few as three minutes. What did we tell you? Sold.
We’re all seeking solace at home right now to regenerate, invigorate, and calm the senses from the chaos of the world outside. Taking some time to give back to your body and soak your bones in a restorative tub is so healing.
We’ve tried every cleanser out there and we understand how confusing it can be to find the right one with so many on the market. That’s why we love cleansing balms. They deliver hydration and clean skin all in one product. Like all of the Beauty Counter collection, this one is packed with clean ingredients.
This is no ordinary bath. This is a detoxifying, remineralizing treatment for the body, skin, and scalp. We love a hardworking beauty product. We also love a brand that honors the environment and prioritizes sustainability and locally-sourced ingredients. Ayla responsibly features California’s incredible natural resources like the giant kelp from the Santa Cruz coast and sea salt from Big Sur.
This product is for beauty fans who love to treat themselves to a spa-like daily ritual. This luxurious 10% Glycolic acid gel gently resurfaces the skin, leaving it smooth, clear, and bright while the soothing rosewater base (which smells insane!) will keep skin hydrated and soothed while you exfoliate.
Also know as unicorn tears, this opalescent serum will forever change the way you think about eye creams. On top of being incredibly hydrating, it also acts as a highlighter with its light-reflecting particles. Buh-bye dark circles.
If, like us, you love to watch makeup tutorials then get yourself over to celebrity make-up artist’s Instagram or newly launched YouTube channel to see the master painting the faces of some of your favorite creatives, then recreate it at home with his own product line. The lipstick is soft and velvety but doesn’t dry out your lips.
Taking care of our health is of utmost priority these days and everyone knows our wellness starts in the gut. The Beauty Chef products are all targeted towards gut health and beauty from the inside out. This powder tastes so delicious and dissolves easily in water or is a great addition to your smoothie recipe.
This iconic makeup line just relaunched with Violet Grey alum, Carrie Barber at the helm. This sculpting lash and brow gel will tame your brow hairs and keep them in place without feeling crunchy.
There hasn’t been a body care line that has disrupted the space as much as Néessaire. Their iconic packaging is just the beginning. Their products also feature clean, potent, high-performing ingredients that smell just as good as they work.
