Beauty Junkie

Okay, I promise this isn’t some long-ass Holiday Gift Guide. I’m here to get to the point, because we don’t have all day. AMIRIGHT?!

And as previously mentioned in my last post, I’m just not a believer of ‘stuff’ anymore. I’m over it to be honest! I don’t want gifts on gifts that are cluttering up my home, and things I’ll never use. I want PRACTICAL shit. I want shit that I’m going to actually use. DAILY.

So I’ve put together the ULTIMATE list of stocking stuffer ideas that any beauty junkie will love. And no, an eye shadow palette that has over 50 colours in it is NOT included on this list. Because in reality, if you’re not a make-up Youtuber, you are NOT using 50 different colours of eye shadows.

I use TWO. Two colours of eye shadow ever. Maybe three if I’m feeling fancy. But like, let’s be honest, most of us don’t have the time to “blend blend blend the 14 colours together.” (Clearly, I’ve been watching too many make-up tutorials…) They are addictive to watch – I will admit that.

Anyway, let’s get to this list, because even if you’re not a beauty junkie, you’ll want some of these items. They are totally useful, small and compact, and you’ll use them for a while.


I’m starting with my favourite beauty tool ever, of course. If you guys don’t know the ice roller by now, I don’t know what to tell you. Except, GET ONE. It’s just the perfect beauty tool anyone can use. Even men! In fact, Andrew loves the shit out of this. He’ll casually come near me when I’m rolling this on my face lol. **I can take a hint, babe**

If you know nothing about the ice roller, head over to this post. I’m breaking it down for you. But in a nutshell, let me list the benefits:

  • It firms, tightens and lifts your skin.
  • Great for anti-aging.
  • Perfect for getting rid of zits, because it cools down the inflamed area.
  • Shrinks pores
  • Reduces redness and puffiness in the face.

It’s also amazing for hangovers!! Wakes you the fuck up, and you can carry on with your productive day. Trust me! { grab one here }


If you’ve been following me on Instagram, then you know I’ve been LOVING this brand lately. Every product of theirs starts with 100% pure, organic coconut oil sustainably sourced from small family farms in the Philippines. Coconut oil makes skin everything you want it to be—glowy, healthy, hydrated, young, supple and smooth. It’s made mostly of fatty acids. There are a few products I’ve been obsessed with lately, and their natural deodorant is one of them. I of course, have the full sized one, but the mini is what I carry with me in my purse. It’s VERY convenient when you’re go-go-go.

Here’s why you need this:

  • 100% plant based. Works with your body’s natural functions to aid in odour reduction.
  • Clear formula glides on smooth without leaving sticky, white residue.
  • Blend of coconut water, coconut oil, and sage oil conditions and soothes sensitive underarms. It’s like skincare for your pits.
  • Obviously aluminum-free!

Guys, trust me – I have tried and tested over 20 different natural deodorants, and there are only a couple that I absolutely love. For years I roamed around smelling like shit because I refused to wear deodorant with aluminum in it. LOL. Now I smell like a beachy coconut – lucky Andrew. { Grab it here }

Also, while we’re on the topic of coconut – have you guys tired Kopari’s Coconut Love Melt? It’s coconut oil lube. I’m SO into it. I don’t want nasty-ass chemicals down there, you know? I just want the purest coconut oils in that area. Trust me when I say, sex is just so much better when you use this.

Sorry I got side tracked here. Coconut oil lube is for everyone, not just beauty junkies.

Oh my! If you already use this then you know how well this blends your make-up. Guys, do not get the shitty $8 beauty blenders from Walmart. Get to Sephora or grab this on Amazon, and you’ll notice SUCH a difference. And you only need one! These little pink blenders last forever. I’ve had mine for over a year now, and other than it turning a bit brown-ish from the foundation, it’s in perfect condition.

If you have a hard time blending in foundation, concealer, or even highlighter, use the Beauty Blender. I absolutely hate seeing harsh lines on someone’s face. You can tell right away that they have a ton of make-up on. I love a natural glow. Like, I always want to look like I’ve come from the beach. LOL. And beauty blenders help you achieve that look.

HOT TIP: Make sure you always, ALWAYS wet your beauty blender before using it on your face. If you use a dry beauty blender on your skin, you aren’t doing anything. The BB needs to be damp. Run it under the tap and then gently squeeze some water out of it with a towel. { Grab one here }


Every beauty junkie needs a cute case to put all their shit it. It’s needs to be practical, obviously chic, and a good size for traveling. Well, I have found the perfect one. This adorable Louis Vuitton-ish one is MY FAVOURITE. I bought it off Amazon, it was $29 bucks, and fits all my beauty goodies in there perfectly. It’s also nice because it doesn’t have some weird imitation logo on it. If you have the Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote (I have the real one lol) then it’s also super cute to throw it in there.

Anyway, I love little travel hacks, and I think this is the perfect travel case. { Grab one here }


Okay, I’ve talked about Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Pillow talk’ lipstick on the blog before. BUT, I have found an even better Charlotte Tilbury nude lipstick. It’s called ‘Super Nineties’. Oh my God!! This colour is amazing. It’s the absolute perfect nude, it’s darker than Pillow Talk, and is perfect for anyone with slightly darker skin tones.

Now, if you are lighter skin-toned, then you may actually prefer Pillow Talk. But I’ve had a couple people with darker skin tones, tell me that Pillow Talk is a little too light for them. Obviously I went on the hunt to find something for darker skin tones, and viola!! ‘Super Nineties’ is GORGEOUS. I’m totally obsessed with this one.

I also love the Charlotte Tilbury brand for lipsticks because I find that they don’t dry out my lips. Lot’s of lipstick are made from ingredients that totally destroy your lips, and I hate that! I’m constantly working to keep my lips soft and smooth, and I don’t feel like ruining them with shitty lipsticks. So, spend the money and get Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. They are FAB.


And since we’re on the topic of soft lips, I should let you know that I’ve been using Kopari’s Lip Glossies, and loving every bit of it. SO hydrating and yummy. They are also the perfect shine. I have them in clear and Birthday Suit for some colour. They are made with Shea Butter and obviously coconut oil!

They are also Dermatologist-Tested, Non-Irritating, Non-Allergenic, cruelty-free, vegan, paraben-free, silicone-free, & phthalate-free. LIKE, YAS PLZ.

So, if you are a beauty junkie, or know someone that is, this is the perfect list to go from. They will love ANYTHING here. I of course have and use everything on this list, and love love love them all.

What are you beauty favourites? Do I need to add to this list? Share below.

Wishing you guys an amazing Holiday season filled with more memories and fewer gifts.

Xx, kim
