Help Me With Makeup – Where to buy Makeup Kit?

Apologies for being MIA for this weekend but I am back!! I had been at my mum’s place and had 2 of the most laziest days of my married life spent there.. 😉 ..but Girlies I need your help today!! 🙂

I am looking for a makeup kit with the basic essentials like Lipstick, Lip gloss, Lip Liner, Eye liner/Kohl, Mascara along with Makeup base like Foundation concealer, compact.Actually I have to gift it to some one who is not at all a makeup enthusiast, so no eye shadows and blushes.

MAC Big Makeup Kit

I looked for it online but couldn’t find one. Something similar to these will do, but any of you MAC lovers has an idea if there is a possibility that I can get my customized kit made from M.A.C.


Price is actually not a constraint and I am ready to spend on brands like L’Oreal, MAC, Estee Launder, Bobbi Brown etc.

Don’t Miss to Checkout:

What would you suggest shall I go for a kit or purchase them individually and assemble in a gifting box. I am totally confused and out of ideas. So, all your suggestions and Recommendations will be highly appreciated!

    I suggest is to better purchase them individually and gift pack them.,.. that would give you many choices to choose from 🙂

    I think You Should Go For a VanityBox/Train Case. That Way You Can Not Just Customize Your Products But Also Organize Them Well.. You Can Get Very Good and Affordable Ones From Kryolan

    Btw, Whos The Lucky One? 😛

    • poonamSeptember 17, 2013 at 3:51 PM - Reply

      Ohh yes.. another amazing suggestion!! now I dont need to worry about packaging and vanity box will be a great help too!!
      Haven’t purchased any.. do you have one or saw something on google that you would like to recommend.. 🙂 .. Krylon have vanity cases too?? then I gotta pay a visit really soon!!

      Heheh.. it is for my SIL honey!! she is blesses with a baby boy 🙂

      • HeenaSeptember 22, 2013 at 1:33 PM - Reply

        I Went To Kryolan, Lajpat Nagar Few Months Back.. I Saw Train Cases There in Various Sizes.. And Theirs Are Affordable and Sturdy Compared To Other Options I Have Even Seen

        Awww!! So Cute! God Bless Her 🙂

          Thank u so much Heena.. now I will be getting one from Krylon only .. 🙂

    I would suggest to personally pick the items often times I have noticed not all the things in the kit go well along and as you said no eyeshadows and no blushes , it would be difficult to find a set without these two items. Also selecting every item would make the gift more personable. All the best, its a tough task.

    • poonamSeptember 17, 2013 at 3:54 PM - Reply

      Yes sugu.. I think customized option will work better..!!
      me too found lots of eye shadows and blushes in thekit which would be plain useless!!
      I am so hand pick all the favorites!! ..I have so much to do ..I need your best wishes!! .. thnaks a lott sweety! 🙂

    I dont know of any makeup bags but I’d say go with a customized bag! 🙂
    Colorbar Lippies, Glosses by Lakme, Blushes by MAC or NYX, Colorbar Kajal, Mascara & Foundation by Maybelline…Hope it helps! 🙂

    Normally you get a free makeup pouch from brands like Mayebelline( which is very cute) on spending certain amount… if you havent bought the products then maybe you can buy all from one brand and enjoy the free gift too 😀

      I am yet to start with purchases and yes if i cross that threshold amount I would love to grab these cutie gifts!!
      thansk for the recco dear.. 🙂

    • poonamSeptember 18, 2013 at 6:21 PM - Reply

      I will be going for assorted one for sure.. just getting through all the brands and shortlisting the products!!

      I just hope she like it and i could make her feel happy with this.. 😀 😀 She is really adorable and extremely courteous.. and I am so glad that finally i got a chance to do domething for her.!!
