Give a little luxury to everyone this season with beauty products under $50 from Macy’s. Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers or something for Secret Santa and White Elephant exchanges, you’ll find an array of perfume, cologne and makeup under $50 right here.
Before you take a crack at that holiday list, check out our tips below.
Affordable Beauty, Perfect Presents
Macy’s offers a wide range of makeup products under $50 to keep your giftees happy and your budget under control. When choosing makeup or beauty items as a present, the most important things to consider are the age, style and personal preferences of the recipient.
Try picking up a multi-piece makeup set from an up-and-coming brand (a perfect present for trend-conscious teens) or a single full-size tube of lip makeup from a prestige label (a good bet for more mature relatives and friends who already have a defined look). Both cost around the same price—and they’re both beauty gifts under $50.
Can Inexpensive Makeup Be Good?
The answer is a resounding yes. Many brands use similar formulas for their face makeup. So when it comes to eye makeup, the difference between an $18 mascara and one that costs twice as much might be more about the cost of packaging and branding than the formulation.
Also, some people on your holiday shopping list might prefer receiving less expensive makeup. It’s more affordable to replenish when it runs out, and it’s buyable in multiples (for example: one to keep at home and one to put in a purse) if your present turns out to be a beauty product that they simply can’t live without!
Don’t Rule Out Fragrances Under $50
Even if the recipient already has a signature scent, you can still buy fragrance gifts under $50. However, it will be helpful to think beyond the usual standalone bottle of eau de toilette or cologne.
When looking for fragrance gifts, consider options like a trio of travel-sized sprays, rollerballs or a multi-piece gift set of perfume miniatures. A body lotion-and-perfume duo is another great gift idea under $50.
If these don’t fit the bill, there are plenty of brands that offer single bottles of perfume under $50, including scents from famous names like Guerlain, Rituals, Elizabeth Arden and Cacharel.
