This week I am bringing to you a gift guide for stocking fillers, however saying that some of these would also make great actual gifts on their own too. They would also be perfect for those Secret santa's where you are on a budget. They are all beauty related so if it ain't your thing then click away now!
1. Stila - Written in the Stars Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow set (£25)
This is such a beautiful gift set. It contains three of the magnificent metals liquid eyeshadows in mini format. For the price I think this is great as it allows you to try three different colours for around the same price as what one would usually cost. The effect these give is stunning and so sparkly I just can't get enough. This is one of the pricier items on my list and would equally make a fab christmas present or stocking filler.
2. Kiss - ImPRESS Gel Fake Nails (£7.99)
Such a lovely stocking filler. Not only am I 'impressed' (excuse the pun! Come on, it is christmas!) by the range of gorgeous designs, but also how secure these feel on the nail. I think I can honestly say these are the best false nails I have ever tried. They fit my nails so perfectly and they have been designed to look like a gel nail. They appear so professional and would be a hit in any beauty lover's stocking. I really enjoyed wearing them myself and have a pair ready for Christmas day!
3. Kiss - Lash couture (Midnight, £7.99) & Natural False Lashes (Shy, £4.99)
Who doesn't love false lashes? Well whatever lash effect you want, from dramatic to natural, Kiss have you covered. I was particularly wowed by the Lash Couture range as they give a faux mink effect. They are 3D and also have a mix of brown and black coloured hairs in them to make them look even more effective. Gift one as a stocking filler and do yourself a favour, buy a pair for you too.
4. Leighton Denny - Two of a Kind Nail Polish Duo (Real Treasure & Down Memory Lane, £10)
Without fail, every year I get some sort of nail polish combo as a gift and out of a lot of sets, these limited edition colours really stand out to me. Leighton Denny is a great nail brand and you can rely on the quality of the nail polish. You get two mini nail polishes for £10 and I think the colours are great for the festive season. The packaging also gives me christmas cracker vibes so it's a hit for me!
5. Spacemasks - (£3.50 each OR £15 for pack of 5)
So this might not seem like an obvious stocking filler but let me tell you whoever is on the receiving end of these will thank you! If you haven't heard of Spacemasks, it's essentially an eye mask that when you apply to your face, start to warm up using some kind of crazy scientific power (iron filings react to oxygen creating heat). The end result is a warm soothing eye mask with the added extra of Jasmine. I suggest buying a box of five and adding one to everyone's Christmas present!
6. Charlotte Tilbury - Mini Celebrity Lipstick Charms (£29)
This is one of the most expensive items on the list. And to be honest I would be happy with this as a christmas gift rather than stocking filler because of the price and size (each lipstick is 4cm in length.) However saying that, the colours included are some of the most popular from the Hot lips collection and I absolutely love mini's as it allows you to try a range of colours. From left to right you get, Kim K W, Carina's Love, and Secret Salma, a great mix of colours.
7. So...? Fragrances - Body Mists (£3.99)
I featured these fab body mists on my blog a few weeks back (click here) and I think they would be a perfect addition to any stocking. Lovely mists that are light and fresh. There are a range of scents to choose from to suit whoever you are purchasing for. Mine have constantly been in my handbag since I got them so would definitely recommend as an add on to a christmas gift.
And that's it for my stocking fillers post. Just a few items I think any beauty lover would be happy to receive. Have you started your christmas Shopping yet? I haven't! Eek, I better get on it!
