How awesome would it be to receive a make-up gift basket full of goodies?
I would LOVE it! Especially if it contained products from some of my favourite brands, such as, MAC and Smashbox! 😀
A friend of mine asked if I could create a make-up gift basket for his wife to give as a birthday present. I excitedly agreed because I love shopping for make-up, especially if it’s not for myself!
I checked out his wife’s current make-up bag and let’s just say, she was in need of a new…uhhh….EVERYTHING!
Here is what I came up with:
- QUO Eye lash curler
- Red Earth eye make-up remover
- MAC Select Moisturecover concealer
- MAC Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 foundation
- MAC Blot Powder
- QUO Double-ended Brush Set with embelleshed brush case
Smashbox Kit includes:
– Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss
– Lash DNA Mascara (Jet Black)
– Eye Palette (Encore) which includes a black jet-set liner
– Photo Finish Foundation Primer (Travel Size)
– Blush/Soft Lights Duo (Style/Icon)

For those of you who know me, you know I LOVE a great deal!! Everything you see above was purchased on sale or with a discount! I purchased the QUO products on sale at Shopper’s Drugmart and the MAC products were purchased with my PRO discount. The make-up remover and Smashbox set was purchased from, “Lisa’s Cosmetics”. Every year I always look forward to going to the “Lisa Cosmetics” sale! It’s open only on two sets of weekends (at the end of November and beginning of December) . . . just in time for Christmas shopping! The Smashbox sets were on sale for $27 each which normally sell for triple the price in retail stores!
Oohhhh…and not to forget, the case I put all these goodies in is just a small, silver CD case which was also bought for an affordable price!
How awesome is this gift basket!!!?
It covers everything from the face primer (first step of the make-up application) to the mascara (last step)! I love it and it didn’t even cost close to as much as it is worth!!!
