Beauty Mark It! Cool Stocking Stuffers Under $10

Along with the holiday gift guides I've been putting together, I thought it would be fun to come up with a few inexpensive stocking stuffers. This set from C.O. Bigelow is my pick because it's cute, retro, and affordable. The Soda Fountain Mini Mentha Lip Shine Trio ($10) contains three milkshake-flavored lip shines in Vanilla Malt, Double Chocolate and Strawberry Shake. (Double Chocolate smells the best.) They're a little tingly, and they moisturize while adding sheer shine. On its own, it's already a budget buy—but if you divvy up the three lip shines, it's downright cheap.

So that's my suggestion for a beauty stocking stuffer that costs less than a ten-spot. I'm sure you have tons of ideas, too. So for this week's Beauty Mark It challenge, let's all band together to come up with cheap, cool stocking stuffer that costs $10 or less. Share your favorites by tagging your choices with the phrase "under 10." I'll feature the readers' favorites on BellaSugar next Tuesday, December 5.

I LOVE the mentha lip shine products! They have ones with tint....its awesome. Great hint of color, shine and peppermint feel on your lips. It's my favorite! I stock up on these things everytime Bath and Body Works has a sale.

Please keep posting these. I have a million people to buy for this year and I'm on a budget. I love these though, I'll definitely have to buy them for the my 17 year old cousin. :)

I love stocking stuffers more than anything! Seriously, skip the gifts and give me a stocking full of beauty goodies and I'm the happiest person ever! I went to CO Bigelow last week for stocking stuffer ideas for my mom. I like how you think Bella!

I have that Soda Fountain trio...the new ice cream flavors smell SO good! It's the perfect stocking stuffer for sure.

B&BW sells other flavours, too. The orange creme is really very nice. The cherry cola made my tongue feel weird and had an off-taste. I used it only once. This looks like a great set, though! The strawberry sounds yummy.

Sephora has great stocking stuffers too! Check out the Beauty-To-Go kiosks in the store. Sure, most are over $10, but worth it! end Sephora plug. Haha.
