Gifts for the ones who don’t wear much makeup (or beauty newbies!)
Liquid Blush — $10
Our skincare-infused Liquid Blush gives a sun-kissed glow everyone's (winter) skin will love! With ingredients like Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E, our liquid blush gives skin a royal treatment while tinting cheeks to perfection for a gorgeous flush. It's the gift that keeps on giving - your friend will love the healthy-looking skin they get!
Luminizer — $7
Our luminizer gives the wearer a fresh-faced glow that’ll catch light in all the right places. The best part? It’s not super shiny or glittery, so it can either be worn on top of other makeup or alone to add a little radiance to dull, drab winter skin.
Lip Gloss — $8
Because everything’s better with glossy lips. And our glosses check all of the boxes — lightweight, non-sticky, and available in tons of different shades and finishes. From shiny clear (for a natural look) to shimmery red (for a brighter tint), you can grab a shade for everyone you know.
False Eyelashes — $6 (or $30 for all six styles)
Lashes are the perfect pick-me-up for cold, wintery days (you know, the ones that make you wish you could rather stay in bed all day). Falsies are an easy way to add some volume and length to your natural lashes. Grab MidtownGirl, Chelsea Girl, and Soho Girl for the natural-makeup-lovers in your life.
Blending Sponge — $5 (or $20 for the Box Set of 4 Sponges)
These sponges are an absolute must-have. Ideal for liquid foundation, BB cream, and tinted moisturizer, these sponges give a smooth, flawless application every time. No creases, no splotching, no problems. Get the individual packages as the perfect stocking stuffers, or the box set for the heavy sponge users in your life!
Everyday Makeup Set — $36 (plus free zipper pouch)
If you need a quick, affordable gift that’s guaranteed to win every time, pick up this customizable set. You can choose the shades of cream blush, luminizer, and matte liquid lip to fit the vibe of the person you’re gifting! It’s also a great collection of products for makeup beginners.
Gifts for the ones who love neutral tones
BKB Eyeshadow Palette — $12
You really can’t go wrong with a neutral palette. The BKB has six tones, in both matte and shimmer finishes, that are perfect for daily wear and soft shadow looks. This palette features cool-toned neutrals shades that look great on skin tones with purple, blue, or pink undertones.
Uptown Downtown Palette — $12
Uptown Downtown is another neutral palette, but with six warm-toned shades. Ideal for people with peachy, yellow, or golden undertones, these gorgeous shadows are bright but soft enough for day-to-day eyeshadow. And our formula is safe for those with sensitive skin, making it super giftable.
Moisturizing Lipstick — $7
Our lipstick is the ultimate fav-fave. Creamy, moisturizing, and pigmented, this lipstick is top-rated and loved by everyone. With 10 colors to choose from, there are plenty of muted tones for your neutral-loving friends.
A little tip? Everyone needs a bold red lipstick. “Everyday is Christmas” is an awesome shade for a pop of classy, holiday fun. Psst — all orders over $30 get this lipstick free from now all the way ‘til Christmas day (while supplies last). Add this lipstick to your cart and use promo code "RedLip" during checkout.
Holographic Lip Gloss — $8
This topper is everything. There are color-shifting, holographic, pigments in it that catch light in a unique way, giving lips a fuller and plumper look in seconds. The shade itself is a pale pink and can be worn alone or on top of a favorite lipstick.
Gifts for the ones who rock bold shades
Lady Liberty Palette — $12
Lady Liberty features 5 bright warm tones plus a vivid burst of blue, making it a great starter palette on the road to bolder makeup looks. These buildable, versatile shades are full of endless possibilities and make an awesome gift for those with an edgier side.
Concrete Jungle Palette — $12
Full of unique, striking colors, Concrete Jungle is for those who are truly daring with their makeup looks. So, if you’re looking for a gift for your brave makeup-loving friend, this is it. Oh, and the green shades are just begging to be used for themed looks this holiday season.
Eye Primer — $8
Our Eye Primer is the perfect gift for your bold eyeshadow loving friends! It's here to make all their eyeshadow dreams come true. This stay-all-day eyeshadow primer grips shadow for long-lasting looks that don’t cake, crease or run, and the lightweight formula has a non-greasy, powdery finish that creates the perfect canvas to make their shadow look brighter and bolder, just the way they like it!
Jelly Highlighter — $11
Gorgeous on all skin tones, our unicorn shade highlighter has an iridescent, glossy glow for the more adventurous makeup lovers. Soft but bright, this jelly gives a blue and purplish hue to the wearer’s cheeks — perfect for the winter.
Glitter Eyeshadow Set — $12
Pick up these intense, stunning shadows for the glitter-addicts in your life. With three shades — mild gold, ruby red, and spunky black — this set works with any eyeshadow look you can think of. These daring glitters make an awesome gift for the gutsier people in your life!
Metallic Liquid Lip — $8
Available in 10 brightly pigmented shades, this liquid lip is incredibly comfortable, long-lasting, and has a mind-blowing metallic finish that’s sure to turn heads. Not to mention anyone who has it on feels like a total badass. Every fearless person you know needs one of these lipsticks.
