Best Christmas makeup stocking fillers for £10 or less
As you’ve probably noticed, it’s become increasingly difficult to find good makeup gifts for under a tenner as prices have jumped up so much in the last year. However, I have persevered and found you some excellent little beauty stocking fillers that come in at £10 or less, either at their standard price or reduced in latest offers.
Kits and baubles
Most department store mini gifts have well and truly broken the £15 barrier in 2022, but there are a few gems here and there, plus the high street’s come to the rescue with bigger gifts that represent excellent value.
Clarins Lips and Lashes Bauble
A little bit of luxury at a low price with these nicely packaged minis. Contains Lip Comfort Oil in Honey, 1.4ml and Supra Lift & Curl Mascara, 3ml.
RRP £10.00, best brice £8.80 at Escentual. Worth £13.30.
Revolution smokey eyes gift set
A generous gift if you buy direct from the brand: Revolution 9-Pan Shadow Palette, Revolution Mascara Black, Revolution Khol Eyeliner, in a shiny glam gift box.
RRP £10.00, and reduced to £5.00 at Revolution Beauty. Worth £15.00.
There is limited supply of this kit, so snap one up soon if you want one. The Revolution shop has many other great kits for £10 and under if it does sell out though.
Eyeshadow sets & palettes
Beautiful quality eyeshadow is hard to find on a budget, but these three stocking fillers caught my eye. Wink wink.
RuPaul Eleganza Extravaganza Liquid Eyeshadow Trio

Three liquid metallic shadows in silver, gold and rose nude for sparkling nights out or days when you’re feeling a bit extra. Oh yes she betta do!

You can get exactly the same duo – this time in the new Xmas gift packaging – at Boots for £10.00 but it’s in the 3-for-2, which would work out cheaper than the Sephora price if you’re doing a larger shop.
Phew! That was a tough stocking fillers roundup to put together at that price point, but there are definitely some lovely treats in the list. I’ll be doing a roundup of larger beauty gifts soon too.
