Ho ho ho! This is my last post of this weeks theme and it has been the one I have been most looking forward to. If your imagination is all “imaginated-out” here are my thoughts on beauty stocking fillers to please pretty much anyone.
High-end: Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze & Glow. Retailing at 65 Euros (Net-a-porter). This certainly is on the more expensive side, but who wouldn’t love to get that glow in their stocking? It comes it two shade combinations, medium to light and medium to dark. Boootiful!
Friend with expensive taste who wants Artis brushes? They don’t need an Artis brush for foundation, what they do need is: Etude House My Beauty Tool Secret Brush. This foundation brush is amazing. Everyone I have used one on has immediately fallen in love, it provides beautiful non-streaky coverage sheering out the heaviest of foundations to a beautiful finish. The brush is super soft, and cleans very easily. Compared to using a beauty blender I save over 30% of time using this brush. It is sturdily made, way better than the Artis dupes where the head snaps off. It retails at around 14 Euros/USD and is available via Amazon, but also seen on i-herb. You will not regret it.
Tarte have two mini palettes, each retailing at 23USD at Sephora each with their nice Amazonian Clay Formula. They are the Tartelette Tease and the Tarteist Pro to Go Amazonian Clay Palette.
Glamglow masks are pretty hot right now. Glamglow prides itself on offering instant results. I have tested 3 of these masks. They claim is true, they may not be miracle workers, but the masks certainly do work. They have small pots retailing at 22 USD (o.5 Oz – 15ml), just be sure to choose the right one for the skin type of the recipient.
Lush is a fabulous place to get Stocking Fillers, but even if the item is small, you want to be sure it is suitable for the recipient. Mask of Magnaminty is hugely popular and suits all skintypes. Smaller pots retail at around 15 USD. If you have friends or relatives who don’t like Lush which you’d like to convert, the bubble bars Brightside and the Comforter might be your best bet. As the user can portion them having multiple baths out of one bar, that way also being able to control the scent levels, the Comforter is a pleasant but not overpowering floral and Brightside is a pleasant citrus. Got a man not into all that girly stuff, win him over with an Intergalactic bath bomb, it exudes a very male aftershave aroma.
That’s all folks, happy shopping!
