What To Get Your Friend Who Wears Too Much Makeup (But Still Wants More)
November 16, 2010
Have a friend who lives for (and in) Sephora? Well, any beauty maven is sure to love these ultra- giftable beauty sets that not only provide endless color options, but also make chic additions to any vanity or makeup bag. You may just want to pick one up for yourself.
With 32 eyeshadows, 8 glosses, 5 liners, a bronzer, and highlighting powder, Tarte’s Jewelry Box ($52) is the mother of all beauty gift sets. To boot, the gilded case comes with a chain necklace that we’d actually want to wear.
Sparkly nails are everywhere this year, and no one does them better than Deborah Lippman. Gifting this “All That Jazz” Color Trio ($40, a $54 value) means your friend will have the perfect accessory for every holiday party.
The MAC Tartan collection is my new favorite; you will love the cool plaid case of this MAC ‘A Tartan Tale – Dazzle the Lads’ Lip Bag ($36).
Napoleon Perdis Limited Edition Gilty Pleasures Deco Deluxe Lip Gloss Pack ($20) is perfect for your friend who changes her lip gloss every hour. Aside from the flattering shades, the tube’s luxe gold design makes these glosses look a lot more expensive than they are.
Have a friend who is always running from the office to post-work drinks? Clinique’s ‘Pretty Day Into Night’ Set ($36, a $75 value), which includes Clinique faves like High Impact Mascara and Cream Shaper for Eyes liner, comes in a clutch she can easily toss into her bag.
Not only does this tokidoki Robbery Palette ($49, a $140 value) feature highly pigmented colors in a number of options (we’re big fans of the green-and-black smokey eye quad), we also can’t get over how cool the box is.
