Last minute stocking fillers

As much as I love choosing the main presents, I do love trying to find all the filler presents for people. Whether they're funny ones, handy ones or just that little extra something. Sometimes I love the little filler presents more than some of my others, you can get some really sweet smaller gifts! I'm pretty easily pleased by just a candle (or lipstick).

Kylie Holiday Collection

Kylie Cosmetics Holiday Collection 2016

It's probably no surprise that I grabbed some of the Kylie Holiday Collection, I'm quite often raving about her lipsticks and practically wear one of the shades everyday. I just love the formula of them. I set my alarm (like the saddo that I am) to order these and in my panic forgot what I wanted and grabbed to two most obvious things. I also stupidly grabbed a lipstick twice so now I have two Vixens, impulse buyer problems.. that's even after thoroughly discussing what I wanted with Chapters of Kat! If I had an unlimited bank balance and didn't need to eat I would've bought the bundle cause I wanted everything, but I looove what I did grab.

One which I knew I wanted as soon as I saw it on Kylies snapchat was the minis, I mean why wouldn't I want to try loads of shades at once?! Plus there was a few shades in here I wanted to buy the lip kits for, but this was easier to grab (and cheaper). I am now currently regretting not getting the other set and the metallics though, boo. I've been desperate for Ginger and Kirsten for ages, so glad I managed to get my hands on them! Angel is a limited edition shade, it reminds me slightly of Smile I never managed to grab!

Another I grabbed, which for me is unusual, is the Naughty Gloss. I never ever wear gloss, so this one is going to take some getting used to, the pigmentation is perfect though. It is so much more opaque than I imagined, I remember glosses being so transparent the last time I wore them. This shade is going to be absolutely perfect for Christmas and will look fab over my Too Faced Lady Balls lipstick too!

Plus just look at the packaging?! Isn't it amazing! Vixen which I also have, comes in a fab hanging box to pop on the tree. So keep an eye on that one for a giveaway on Twitter coming up soon!

Left to Right: Moon, Ginger, Kirsten, Angel, Love Bite and Vixen

Nothing beats Ginger and Kirsten for me, they're my two all time favourites of the bunch. Ginger is very similar to Pumpkin though, but no one can have enough brown toned lipsticks! Vixen is very similar to spice, even more so in terms of application, it takes a lot of work to make sure it's not patchy but once you've got it perfect it's amazing on. Such a beaut vampy lip!

So glad I managed to grab a few bits from this collection. Did you manage to grab anything?

To me from me - Kate Spade Byrdie

I've been desperate for a Kate Spade bag for a while now, I could never quite decide which I wanted and really wanted to choose one in person! But seeing as I wasn't off to New York this December any more I thought I would treat myself to a small one. I was stuck between this one and the multicoloured Byrdie but everyone on Twitter swerved me toward this as it will go with everything!

Too Faced Merry Kissmas

Too Faced Merry Kissmas Christmas Gift Set

I can't resist Christmas sets, especially when it comes to Too Faced and Benefit. They do the best ones ever! I didn't manage to get any last year and I was still a little gutted up until I managed to grab these from Debenhams. I've always wanted to try Too Faced lipsticks as everyone seems to rave about them and well I just love Too Faced in general so I wanted them anyway..
