Sometimes Santa needs a helping hand, so we bring you this list of superlative stocking thrillers (see what we did there?).

Any make up maven with a playful personality will have their heart set on Benefit’s {Makeup Shakeup Cracker}.

You know what to do, Santa!

There’s lip balm, then there’s SUMMER FRIDAYS’ {Lip Butter Balm}. Perfect for topping up hydration on-the-go or indulging in an intensive overnight lip mask, this silky formula forms a flexible barrier to heal and restore even your most parched, winter lips.

Your favourite skin care obsessive can’t fail but be delighted by Kate Somerville’s ultra-savvy {ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment Duo}; it stars a full and mini size of the bestseller that’s bound to restore a glow-ho-ho to dulled or winter-wrought complexions — all at a saving of 20%! *adds to basket*

For those who crave the limelight, ensure your mini diva outshines even the well-tinselled Christmas tree with Nudestix’s {Magnetic Nude Glimmer} – liquid radiance that’s a little more than just ‘glow’ but a little less than a glitter, this gorgeous hybrid creates luscious, luminous light on eyes, cheeks and lips. Blindingly brilliant, there’s nothing not to love about this glimmering line-up of sparkling hues that will transform your look from ‘meh’ to magical.
