3. Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil

When I think of Benefit the first thought that comes to my mind is brows. They really are the kings of brows. With all their different options and colours to choose from you can spend a looong time on their site. One of my favourite brow products from them is the Precisely My Brow Pencil. It comes in 6 colours and is really easy to use. One side is the fine tip pencil and the other side has a brush. It draws really precise lines that are hard to believe aren’t really there. It’s a twisting pencil so it doesn’t need a sharpener. It lasts amazingly and there’s no smudging:) But best of all is that it’s affordable and does the job you want!

4. NYX Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

NYX highlight and contour palette

This is another one of my favourite beauty products. I actually use this contour palette regularly. I love the variety of colours, and the contour has the perfect shade for pale skin like mine. More often than not, contour shades come out orange on pale skin, not the NYX Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Pro Palette.

The palette comes with 8 shades, 4 contour shades and 4 highlight ones. Perfect for any occasion, there is a shimmer highlight for glammed up looks and matte ones for everyday ones. The palette is refillable but honestly, I’ve been using mine for over 6 months now and I am nowhere near finished with any of the colours.

Spice up your holiday season this year with these coloured eyeliners! With 50 shades to choose from, you can be sure there’s a colour for every taste and every mood! These eyeliners are made to stay, they don’t budge, even for those with oily eyelids. In fact, they are the holy grail eyeliner for many who struggle with oily eyelids. They have a waterproof base as well as impressive moisturising ingredients. It’s easy to see why they’re bestsellers and they would make great gifts too:)

My all-time favourite setting powder is now available in festive gift packaging to hang from your tree! The Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder is the answer for flawless makeup. It blurs and smooths the skin giving you a matte finish and the perfect base to apply your makeup on. It makes a great gift because it’s translucent in colour and works on any skin tone and age.

8. Jane Iredale Magic Mitt Makeup Remover

Jane Iredale Magic Mitt Makeup Remover

One of the easiest ways to remove makeup and cleanse your skin at the end of the day is with a makeup remover cloth. Like everything, there are better ones and worse ones. What makes the Jane Iredale Magic Mitt Makeup Remover so great is that it doesn’t affect the skin’s natural barrier. This is essential in a makeup remover, because damaging the skin’s barrier, damages your skin. Yep, that’s a no-no! The Magic Mitt Makeup Remover is easy to use, all you need to do is rinse it after use and hang it to dry. And it’s as good as new! Save your friend or loved one’s time with this easy-to-use makeup remover!

    I want them all! i totally love benefit and they are truly the kings of brows, i had no idea nails inc were doing lipsticks, those are gorgeous! i’m going to forward this post to my husband, is not preassure at all, just something he could read to have an idea of what i want for Christmas… but it’s not preassure.

      Good idea! Although my experience with men is that they don’t take hints too well, it usually needs to be spelt out! Good luck and let me know how it goes:)

    I love all these suggestions for great stocking stuffers! The Benefit brow pencil and 24 hour brow setter look amazing! The lip gloss from Nails, Inc. is somewhat hard to find since it just came out last month and most colors are out of stock. The Caudalie hand cream holiday gift set is so cute and I know several people I can buy these for. The Zoeva palettes are $45 on Amazon but worth it for all that you get. I like how there are five shimmer shades and five matte as opposed to only one shimmer shade and seven matte on the NYX palette which is $21 on Amazon. I have a personal preference for shimmer but those who like matte can save bucks on the NYX palette which is very nice. Can you recommend a good brand of skin primer? I have a make-up setting spray I use from NYX but I am looking for a good primer that isn’t too heavy. Thanks for all this great info!

      Thanks for stopping by! 

      There is no need to spend so much buying these products on amazon when cultbeauty.co.uk ship worldwide and they often have free worldwide shipping. 

      My favourite skin primer is Nude by Nature perfecting primer. It’s all natural and so it is really good for your skin. You can read my full review here.
