Beauty stocking stuffers

The best beauty stocking stuffers under $20.

I may be biased, but I happen to think that beauty gifts make the sweetest stocking stuffers. Even on a strict under-$20 budget, there are plenty of amazing prodz out there. Here are my top picks for 2014: 

1. Sonia Kashuk Golden Age Four-Piece Brush Set

Sonia Kashuk Golden Age Four-Piece Brush Set

Sonia Kashuk Golden Age Four-Piece Brush Set, $19.99

This had me at the tassels. They're adorning this darling black and gold pouch, which you get with four of Sonia Kashuk's famously excellent makeup brushes.

Where to buy: Target

2. Essence How To Make Nude Eyes Make-Up Box

Essence How To Make Nude Eyes Make-Up Box

Essence How To Make Nude Eyes Make-Up Box, $9.99

I'm getting a Benefit vibe from this adorable eyeshadow set, which contains six ultra-wearable neutral shades in matte and shimmer finishes.

Where to buy: Shoppers Drug Mart

3. Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo

Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo

Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo, $8.99

Batiste's dry shampoo is a total classic, and now it comes with a soft floral fragrance and in a super-cute flowery can.

Where to buy: Well.ca, Drugstore.com, Amazon.com

4. Flower Beauty Cherished Rollerball

Flower Beauty Cherished Rollerball

Flower Beauty Cherished Rollerball, $9.99

This scent is SO pretty. (Hard to believe, I know, considering the price and where it is sold.) But truly, it is a real find—notes are lily of the valley, vanilla and sandalwood.

Where to buy: Walmart.ca, Walmart.com

5. Philosophy Purity Made Simple Ornament

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Ornament

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Ornament, $13

Perfect for travel, this three-in-one product acts as a cleanser, makeup remover and toner, and it's suitable for all skin types.

Where to buy: Nordstrom, Amazon.ca, Amazon.com, Macy's

6. The Face Shop Bebe Lip Mask

The Face Shop Bebe Lip Mask

The Face Shop Bebe Lip Mask, $2

No, that's not a typo. This really is $2. It's a made-in-Korea nourishing lip treatment—i.e. a sheet mask for your lips!—that contains hyaluronic acid and marine collagen. Amazing, right?

Where to buy: The Face Shop

7. Essie Nail Polish in Jump In My Jumpsuit

Essie Nail Polish in Jump In My Jumpsuit

Essie Nail Polish in Jump In My Jumpsuit, $10

The most festive shade in Essie's winter 2014 collection is this juicy red. Santa would approve!

Where to buy: Nordstrom, ULTA Beauty, Amazon.ca

8. Bioderma Sensibio H2O Wipes

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Wipes

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Wipes, $14.95

I already raved about my love for these cleansing cloths—the cult Sensibio micellar cleanser in face wipe form. They're safe for sensitive skin and hey, Scarlett Johansson uses them, too.

Where to buy: Amazon.comMurale, Shoppers Drug Mart

9. Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio, $16

I'm a huge Pixi lover, so I use these lip balms—both regular and tinted—all the time. This three-pack is a wicked price, and I'm coveting that raspberry shade so hard.

Where to buy: Target 

10. Ours by Cheryl Hickey EveryBody Lotion

11. Bliss Lemony Trinkets

Bliss Lemony Trinkets

Maybelline The Smokes Eyeshadow Palette, $13.99

Remember The Nudes palette? Well, The Smokes has just landed in Canada (it's been out in the U.S. for a little while), and it's only here for a limited time, so RUN. You just can't beat 12 smoky shadows for this price.

Where to buy: Amazon.com, Shoppers Drug Mart

13. Shiseido Facial Cotton

Shiseido Facial Cotton

Shiseido Facial Cotton, $11

I blab about these things all the time because they really ARE the best cotton pads. And I did the math—believe it or not, they're actually the most economical, too.

Where to buy: Sephora, Amazon.com, Macy's, Saks, Hudson's Bay

14. Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, $9.99

16. CoverGirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara

18. Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, $7.99

You can't go wrong with this classic hand cream, one of my all-time drugstore faves. It's fragrance-free, rich in glycerin and highly concentrated—so a little drop goes a long way.

Where to buy: Well.ca, Drugstore.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.com, ULTA Beauty

19. Sephora Collection Clean Machine Konjac Sponge Duo 

Sephora Collection Clean Machine Konjac Sponge Duo
