Let's talk stocking fillers. The brief when it comes to beauty is compact buys that don't cost the earth. Fortunately, the beauty industry has excelled itself this year, and there are a whole host of limited editions and gift sets available that fit the Christmas stocking filler bill.

Think beauty Christmas crackers, Christmas tree baubles filled with beauty cult classics and mini discovery sets - there's sure to be something for anyone. Consider your Christmas shopping - and self-gifting efforts, of course - well and truly sorted.

Highlights include Champagne-themed eye gels, a small collection of hero products from the luxurious Bamford, a Christmas tree decoration that houses a cult classic from Caudalie and you can't beat the annual Charlotte Tilbury Christmas gifting offering. This year, expect a dinky lip oil and lip liner duo.

Not a Christmas stocking devotee? Consider these buys the perfect solution to the Secret Santa gift you've been roped into hunting down.
