The holidays are as good as an excuse as any to splurge on your loved ones (or yourself, really). And makeup gift sets are one of the best places to start. Whether you’re looking to save money on a set or treat a friend, we’ve rounded up the best makeup gift sets this year. From brow kits, holy grail introductory products, to a set of red lipsticks. Take a look at our picks here.
For the friend with perfect brows or the one who wants perfect brows, this limited-edition kit features a brow gel and brow pencil to help them get there. The Dipbrow Gel has a highly pigmented waterproof formula that withstands Singapore’s heat and humidity and their easy-to-apply formula is fitting for any beginner. The Brow Wiz is an ultra-slim and fine pencil that adds precise detail even for fine hair.
Maskne’s calling all attention to the eyes and for the friend who loves to play with colour or eyeshadows, this set is the perfect pair to gift. The limited-edition Snap Shadow palette features six brand-new shades: from shimmer and sparkles to mattes. The colours range from an iridescent purple, gold, and crimson to buildable nudes. Paired with the ultra-lightweight Full Frontal Mascara, this helps get every little lash defined and volumised.
This limited-edition BHG-exclusive set has three NARS cult-favourites. Blush in Orgasm X, Powermatte Lip Pigment in American Woman and Lip Gloss in No Regrets, plus a $10 voucher off your next NARS purchase. This one is for the friend who loves the glitz and glamour. With a punchy and natural-looking blush, sultry lip pigment, and rich chocolatey gloss – the three are perfect to help you go from subtle to statement.

For the friend who wants it all but doesn’t know where to start, this Holy Grails Makeup Set has six mini-sized products of Benefit’s well-loved products. The POREfessional Pore Primer and Pearl Primer to keep the appearance of pores to a minimum, a Hoola bronzer to create a bronzed glow, Badgal Bang, Gimme Brow and Goof Proof to keep your eyes and brows in place.
