Guaranteed Super Hit Make Up Gifts For Panic Shoppers!!

You’re still no where close to buying those Christmas pressies are you? Let me help you with Make Up Gift ideas that are guaranteed to be a ‘Super Hit’!

There’s not much in make up that you could buy without doubting your self or wondering wether the person would like it. There have been times when I’ve recycled makeup gifts cause it’s just not my type! Not all make up can be or should be gifted. Here are a few things which are always welcome. You can easily pick either or all of these to gift this Christmas. I promise you, it’ll never get recycled.

Red Lipsticks

Wether it’s a glossy red, or a matt or a liquid lipstick, a RED is always a staple in a makeup kit. Go for a known brand / brands so that it doesn’t look cheap. You don’t need to go luxury if you do not have a budget. The drugstore brands are super affordable and last a very long time! I personally have 4 Luxury Red Lippies and probably a dozen drugstore ones. But you know what? I’ll still be dancing with joy if I receive a Red Lipstick!

Rimmel Matte AED 47

Available at Lifestyle, Max, Boots and Carrefour.



Lipstick Queen Jumbo Lip Pencil AED 125

Available at Areej, Bloomingdales, Harvey Nichols & Paris Gallery


Nebu – AED 215

Available exclusively at Paris Gallery.


Bourjois Rogue Edition velvet AED 79

Available at Lifestyle stores, Boots Pharmacies & Wojooh.


Girls love to contour. This isn’t a quote, it’s a fact! The moods for contouring change and so does the shade of the bronzer. This makes it safe for you to pick up any bronzer of your choice as a gift to your MakeUp Junkie friend! Go ahead and buy it, she’ll love it!


Urban Decay – Sephora


Loreal – Lifestyle Stores


NYX – Lifestyle Stores


Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte – Sephora


This again is one of those staples that you can have more than one of in your make up bag. You get volumising one’s, you get lengthening ones’s, you get both these qualities in one. There are a lot of options. You can’t go wrong with a mascara. Try not to gift a water proof mascara. Most women may not use water proof eye make up. stick to the regular ones and you’ll be fine.


Bourjois Volume Glamour Push Up AED 69


Rimmel Scandaleyes AED 45 – Lifestyle stores


Maybelline Colossal Volum Express – AED 45 – Lifestyle Stores


Benefit – They’re Real – AED 60 – Sephora


Eye Shadow Palettes

I have 3 or more palettes open in front of me when I decide to doll up. Really! Diffrent Palettes have diffrent shades of shadows. Some are themed some are random so no palette will be unwelcome. this is a fool proof gift for the Make Up Addict!


Misslyn Palette AED 57 – Lifestyle Stores


Naked Urban Decay AED 249 – Sephora


Inglot Freedom Palette – AED 35 per Eyeshadow


Tarte Amazonian Clay Palette – AED 215 SEPHORA


Anastasia beverly Hills AED 262 SEPHORA

Make Up Brushes

We love a good set of brushes. The lifeline of a makeup brush is approximately a year or maximum a year and a half. So gifting a brush set is always a good idea. Unless it is a very cheap set of brushes, this item is highly unlikely to get recycled.

A Beauty Blender

An absolute must have. Any makeup lover will vouch to have at least one in their make up kit. There are various brands who have beauty blenders. Choose what ever you like, it’ll always be welcome.

Eye Pencil

The safest bet for an eye pencil would be either a black, blue or a brown. This is providing we’re playing the safe game. You cant go wrong with an eye pencil. I suggest buy all the 3 colors.

About Kunjal

I believe that Dubai runs on 2 parallel universes. I have 2 blogs catering to each sphere of these universes. My love for the Dubai 'BLING' & extravagance is the soul food for the DazzlemeDubai blog. Interiors & beauty constitute most of the posts on this blog if not all. Fashion adds the oomph quotient to this over the top, high end & luxury blog. The need for everyday necessities & best buys or new products on the aisles of supermarkets, drugstores & hypermarkets made me start the second blog - aisle101Dubai. This blog covers all the must haves for day to day living with exciting offers, first day sale previews and loads of information on the correct product within your budget. Like every blogger, I'm hoping that everyone enjoys reading both these blogs as much as i love writing them! Oh Yeah, The Disclaimer - The views are all mine on all my blogs, nothing to do with my employer!!
