So here is my third christmas gift guide and one for those who are trying to watch the pennies. If you're like me you will be now well into last months pay and this months wont be coming until right before christmas and you still have a number of christmas presents to get.  All of these picks are under £15 and can easily be picked up from the high street or ordered online in the UK.

Morphe Rose Gold Brushes 

Any beauty lover would love to find some brushes under the tree and in my eyes you can never have enough. Morphe have really great brushes and they are all at affordable price points. Their new rose gold collection are not only good quality and work well but they will also look adorable on you dressing table. Morphe Brushes are available from Beauty Bay and Cult Beauty and if you ordered now you'd definitely get them in time to give them as a christmas gift.

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse | £7.99

This is definitely a product that would be useful under most peoples trees as I always seem to run out at an awkward moment so a back up would be perfect. Cocoa Brown is definitely one of my favourite tans and it doesn't haven't that awful biscuit smell. I tend to favour a mousse as I find it glides on easier and doesn't go patchy.

MUA Luxe Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette | £6.00

This beautiful palette is such a steal for £6 and a great dupe for the Hourglass ones. The formula of the eyeshadows isn't the best but for the price you can't complain and all of the shades work well together. 

Milani Baked Blush | £8.00 

These blushes are so pretty they are sure to put a smile on the recipients face. These baked blushes are in such a pretty array of colours and one to suit every need and skin type. My favourite has to be Dolce Pink, which is a rosy pink shade with a soft shimmer to it. As these are baked they are quite a powdery texture but still really pigmented.

L'Oreal Golden Highlighter | £6.99

If you're buying a present for a beauty lover this year you should snap up this limited edition highlighter quick. This is available only at Superdrug so i'd head to your nearest store now to pick one of these up. This is pretty much identical to the Colourpop ones so if you're not keen on ordering from the US then try this one out. The shade is a true gold shade and the formula is that spongey creamy texture but applies like a powder.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara | £7.99

Anyone that loves long and full lashes will need this under their tree. This is hands down my favourite drug store mascara and I would say it even rivals high end ones. This mascara has a silicone brush tapered at one end that ensures all the lashes are coated. The formula itself it infused with oil so it keeps your lashes moisturised and coats them easier.

I Heart Makeup Naked Chocolate Palette | £7.99

Say hello to a total dupe for the Too Faced chocolate bar palettes thats under £10 and still good quality. There is several different styles of these palettes, my favourite is this white chocolate style one that is a selection of earthy browns, golds and champagnes. The formula of these are quite velvety and blendable although they aren't the most pigmented you could find.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate 15 Year Collection | £6.49

You normally have to pay a lot for pretty lipsticks like these but these are readily available and affordable from most drug stores. These special edition rose gold lipsticks are to celebrate Kate Moss's 15 years with Rimmel and it's a selection of nudes and reds. I really love the formula of these Rimmel lipsticks, they are really creamy and pigmented.

Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette | £9.99

This highlighting palette is such a bargain for the 4 shades you get and the quality of them. In this palette you 3 three powders and 1 cream highlighter in peach, purple, gold and silver, so there is a shade for every occasion. The powders are baked so quite a powdery formula but so pigmented and you need very little to make an impact.

Will you be picking up these gifts for anyone?
