1 Lizly What A Lovely PaletteThis much-loved palette is essential for the colder months with it’s warm colours that are sure to keep you feeling extra toasty on the inside. With six gorgeous colours, create looks that are perfect for any occasion, and its compact size is perfect for putting into stockings too! We tried it out for ourselves and it’s a definite must-have in any beauty lover’s stash.
2 Tony Moly Mini Berry Cherry Lip Balm
How cute is this little bomb! Get mistletoe-ready with this sweetly packaged lip balm that’s infused with a berry complex to hydrate and repair dry pouts. It’s sweet fruity scent and hint of colour is the perfect thing to combat cold, dry days that can be harsh on chapped lips. It also has an SPF of 15 to keep them shielded from the sun, so you don’t have to worry about them even when you’re out and about.
3 IOPE Air Cushion Blusher
Colder months can wreak havoc on the skin, and the last thing we want is to have to give up makeup during such an important time of the year because our skin feels flaky. This cushion type blusher has a liquid formula, which applies evenly onto the skin minus any dry cakiness, giving your cheeks a natural looking flush. The packaging of this is smaller than that of a conventional cushion too, making this perfect for stashing into a couple of stockings this year.
We know how tempting holiday food can be, especially when it’s home-cooked and eaten with loved ones! Don’t worry, here’s a little secret weapon to keep those cheeks in check: contouring! This handy duo comes with a darker shade on one end to shadow areas, and a lighter shade to highlight the high points of your face. Just a couple of swipes, a little blending, and ta-da! You’ll get chiseled features in no time (shh, we won’t tell!).
This is definitely one of the more luxurious items on our list, but the beautiful packaging really does have strong festive vibes! This lush gel-type cream is rich in traditional nourishing ingredients like ginseng, boxthorn, acanthopanax and wilfordi root extract that has moisturizing and anti-aging properties. It even comes with a specific way to use it on the skin: apply an even layer to the face and gently massage into the skin in an upward motion for best results.
6 Etude House My Little Nut Lucky Cheek Beam
Speaking of holiday vibes, this limited edition Christmas cheek highlighter from Etude House really knows how to make our hearts flutter like angel wings! This liquid gold glides on like a shimmery dream, and is really handy to carry around too (hence, the stocking stuffer suggestion). We love dotting this on the high points of the face and blending out with fingers to give us a candlelit glow from within.
7 It’s Skin Power 10 Formula GF Effector
Dry, patchy skin is the last thing you want to worry about during the festivities. Save yourself the trouble with some help from the GF Effector serum! This potent concentrate moisturizes the skin and contains licorice root extract to soothe skin irritations and redness, leaving you with a bouncy, glowy complexion. It’s lightweight texture absorbs quickly into the skin too without making it gross and sticky, making this a great gift for everyone all year round.

Oh, these cuties are giving us warm fuzzy feelings on the inside! Packaged in baby animal versions of Russian doll-shaped containers, these super cute hand creams are formulated with organic olive oil and shea butter to moisturize dry, rough hands, keeping them soft and smooth (perfect to hold a loved one!). They smell lovely and have a unique shape to them, making them a great gift for recipients of any age.
10 Rire Lip Manicure
A chic, bold lip is always a great way to end any look in our books! This liquid lipstick dries down to a matte finish, so it doesn’t transfer through light drinking and eating as long as oil isn’t involved. We love 05 Muse Red for a brighter daytime look, or 10 Wine Burgundy for a sultry, nighttime one. Channel your inner diva or challenge someone to take on bold lips with this adorably sized stocking stuffer!
