Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers

I hope you've been enjoying my gift guides so far! Today, I am focusing on stocking fillers. The stocking was always my favourite part of Christmas presents because I loved that there were so many little gifts in there and, to be honest, I am still the same! My Mam still gives individually wrapped small pressies because she knows how much I love them! I have eight products to share with you today that I think make ideal stocking fillers!

I think that you can't go wrong with a hand cream and I particularly love those from Korres because they all have beautiful scents, they absorb quickly yet are very nourishing, they are affordable and these 75ml tubes fit in my handbag. 

Another great offering from Korres is their "Oh little stars" gift set, which contains two 40ml shower gels in the Japanese Rose and Basil Lemon scents and two matching 40ml body lotions. These are ideal for short breaks and layering the scent by using both a shower gel and body lotion in the same fragrance means that it lingers for longer on the skin.

A Stroke of Genius from Temple Spa nourishes the lashes as it coats them and the result is soft, fluttery, lengthened and defined lashes. It builds well but never clumps or flakes.

Huda Beauty Lip Contour Set is something that I think most makeup lovers would love to find in their stocking! This set contains one full sized lip liner and two mini matte liquid lipsticks. The lip liners from Huda Beauty are pigmented, creamy and easy to apply and the liquid lipsticks are non-drying and very comfortable on the lips. There are four colour options available and the liner in each set works with both liquid lipsticks.

More budget friendly lip products can be found at Kiko, yet they look and perform like high end products. This Asian Touch lip pencil and Asian Touch Matte Liquid Lipstick are priced at less than half the price of the Huda set and are just as pigmented. I wouldn't say that the liquid lipstick is quite as long-lasting but it is still amazing quality for the price.

For those who don't like matte lip products, I can highly recommend Too Faced Melted Latex Liquid Lipsticks as they give the shine of a gloss with the wear time of a liquid lipstick, without drying the lips out. I will be rocking this bright pink version over the holidays!

Every makeup lover needs a Beauty Blender in their life! Other beauty sponges just don't compare in my opinion! With the Beauty Blender, you can achieve a flawless, seamless base quickly and foundation appears undetectable on the skin. A must have!

Finally, I don't think there is anybody who wouldn't appreciate a bottle of Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist, especially in the limited edition packaging! This mist is so fine that it is perfect for using to refresh your base but it is also the perfect post acid step to rebalance the skin. It is alcohol-free so it won't dry the skin out and the rose and neroli scent is faint but still detectable and very refeshing.

Would you like to find any of these in your stocking? I'd love to hear!
