Sally Beauty may be known as the bargain supply store for amateur and professional beauty-aholics alike. But this holiday season, the national retailer is painting the town red with some of the best bang for your stocking stuffer buck.

We perused all the glittery offerings that just begged to be played with, and found our five favorites that all cash in under $10.

You know what that means, right? One for you, and two for me...

Real Colors Smoky Eye Kit in Amethyst Twist, $9.99

Each pretty, wearable shade has its purpose engraved in the hetch marks -- so you can go from base and contour to lid and light without any speculation. With eyeliner, mascara and written instructions included, no one would guess it's under $10.


Beyond Belief Holiday Lotions, $1.19 each

We were hit with sticker shock of the opposite kind when we learned that these pearlized tubes of yummy hand and body lotion were just under $2 each, and featured delicious scents of spiced pomegranate, gingersnap and French vanilla. The perfect little something to gift co-workers, friends or party guests as holiday party favors.

Femme Couture Holiday Mascara Collection, $9.99

The one makeup item most women say they can't leave home without is their beloved mascara, and this set of four includes black curl-sculpting, volumizing and lengthening formulas that you can wear alone or layer up for a more dramatic holiday party effect.

A sparkly new nail polish can transform an old ensemble to make it look fresh and new again, and this nail collection features this season's hottest shades. Choose from Mistletoe Mischief (evergreen), Merry Mittens (gold-flecked red), Holly Good Times (glittery gold), Mulberry Madness (deep scarlet) Just Plum Fun (grape purple) and Winter Wishes (sparkling silver).

Femme Couture Snowflake Mirror, $9.99

With a regular and magnified view, this gold and jewel-encrusted mirror makes a statement when pulled out of a clutch for a touch-up. And when someone asks if we scored it at that department store counter, we may be tempted to fib and say, 'Yes!'
