28 of the Best Beauty Gift Ideas Under $50

They look luxe, but won't break the bank.

If your beauty budget has a $50 limit, not to worry! I've scoured the stores, and there's plenty of gorgeousness out there, for not a whole lot of cash.

Beauty gift sets will definitely give you the most bang for your buck, since they bundle multiple products for a lower-than-usual price. (I've got a few below, and also check out my big gift set round-up for more ideas!)

But I also think it's nice to treat someone to just ONE ultra-luxurious beauty item—like a Chanel lipstick or a Tom Ford soap—that they'd probably never buy for themselves. Quality over quantity, right?

Here are 28 ideas all ringing in under $50 Canadian:
