5 Budget Makeup Products To Gift Your Glamorous BFF

By  | 

We’ve all been there. When you have a discerning BFF who simply won’t settle for a gift you give her. She will — and this is 99% of the time — return what you have chosen for her with (a lot thought and love) and replace it with something you have to smile politely at.

So we thought we would help you beleaguered ladies out this Friendship’s Day. We give you a list of affordable, amazing makeup products that your glamorous BFF will actually love. Throw the bill away. These are keepers!



L’Oréal Paris Mat Magique 12H Bright Mat Foundation (Rs 575)

See, we have to cover all the bases. So obviously, we start with a really good foundation. And this one from L’Oréal is a great way to get started. It offers you enough coverage to hide imperfections but it won’t leave your face cakey. She’ll love it.



Wet n Wild Photo Focus Concealer (Rs 399)

Have you guys been spending hours together discussing boys, the future, jobs, and so much more that you’ve skipped on sleep and now both of you look like racoons? This concealer will hide dark circles, blemishes, and if you want, hickeys too. Be a peach and gift her this.



Plum NaturStudio All-Day-Wear Kohl Kajal (Rs 495)

Open her eyes, literally. This all day kajal will last all night, and many hours into the morning. So do your BFF a favour and gift her this kohl. She’ll be thankful forever. Because this is dark, long-lasting, and possibly (and we say this with some trepidation) will stick around long after you will.



Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter (Rs 550)

You’re probably the highlight of her life. (We have gone into heavy corny cliche here, so let’s just back up a little bit.) But any glamour-loving babe will appreciate a highlighter, and this one from Maybelline can be used to guide planes on the runway — it’s that strong. It’s pigmented, flattering, and sexy. It’s the perfect pick.



Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream (Rs 295)

We haven’t met a makeup-loving girl who doesn’t love the Miss Claire Soft Matte Lip Cream. And at this price point, you can afford to be a little more generous and maybe buy her two shades. Give this one a whirl, she’ll love you for knowing what she loves. Thank us later!
