Exactly What To Buy If Your Holiday Beauty Budget Is $50 & Under

When someone mentions Nordstrom, we're immediately catapulted into a flashback scene of prom dress shopping amidst all that sequin and tulle. But now that we've passed our teenage ballgown phase, Nordstrom is where we do the bulk of our holiday shopping. From mom's new shearling coat to dad's leather duffel bag, the department store has everything — including an entire beauty section filled with affordable gift sets.
We're decidedly too old for stocking stuffers, but that doesn't mean we're not looking for pint-sized prices on gifts. Think: deluxe-sized hairsprays, miniature candles (that somehow still last just as long as the jumbo jars), and sample lipsticks small enough to store inside our purse pockets year-round. Luckily, Nordstrom has all of that (and a little more), so you can check everything off your family's wish list without going — too far — over budget.
Ahead, the best under-$50 gift sets at Nordstrom.
