Whilst I love big and extravagant presents as much as the next girl, I also have a soft spot for bite-sized items… especially those of the beauty variety! Since Christmas is coming up soon, I thought it would be a good idea to curate a list of miniature beauty products that can be used as stocking stuffers. Read on for my recommendations.
1. GlamGlow InstaMud
Formulated with bentonite clay, kaolin, witch hazel and aloe vera, this purple mask is great for those with combination-to-oily skin. In just 60 seconds, it foams up and unclogs the pores to deliver a smoother and clearer complexion.
2. Bobbi Brown Mini Shimmer Brick
This cult-favourite compact is quite the multitasker. Sweep a brush over all the hues to get a luminous glow or use the shades individually to get a pop of colour on your eyes or cheeks.
3. Moroccanoil Treatment Original
Don’t let the size of this bottle fool you! The argan oil formula works quickly and effectively to soften, detangle and defrizz hair, whilst leaving behind a beautiful sheen.
4. MAC Mini Lipstick
When in doubt, stick to lipsticks! These teeny tubes look absolutely adorable and pack a real punch with their pigmentation. I’m a huge fan of ‘Velvet Teddy’, a deep beige, and ‘Ruby Woo’, the blue-toned red that is loved by celebrities all over the globe.
5. Tom Ford Cream Color For Eyes
If you are planning to splurge on a gift, you should definitely consider these luxurious eyeshadows. The creamy formula glides on to the lids to deliver a soft, metallic finish like no other. If you are confused about which shade to get, you can’t go wrong with ‘Spice’, which is a shimmery bronze hue.
6. Kiehl’s Cactus Flower & Tibetan Ginseng Hydrating Mist
Have you got a friend that’s constantly catching flights? Buy her a travel-sized version of this mist. The cooling formula keeps the skin hydrated, whilst delivering a burst of vitamins and minerals. Every time she spritzes on the formula mid-flight, you can be sure that she will remember you.
7. Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumising Eyebrow Gel
It’s pretty clear that the brow trend is going nowhere! This tinted gel tames and builds up the hair to give the illusion of fluffier and more defined brows. It even comes in 8 shades so that you can find the perfect match.
Honestly, I wouldn’t blame you if you just bought these beauty products for yourself! They really are too cute to handle.
