Hi, I'd like to get some pretty make up / beauty sets for my sister (in her 40s) and niece (20). They are both into vintage-y type things style-wise, and I'd be willing to spend about £30-£40 each. Any ideas? Thanks!

I'm in total agreement with the pp. Benefit do lovely sets and I lust after the Paul and joe cat lipsticks

My DD asked for the urban decay naked palettes and the packaging and feel of them are lovely. £38 but always codes and chances are good deals on Friday when there is often blanket 10 or 15% off.

For your sister I like a lot of the sets Clinique does. I find chubby sticks very easy for everyday on lips and they do a few sets of a mix of colours. Not sure it's a very young brand though.

Got distracted by family things! These are great suggestions - thanks so much!

Bought the Paul and Joe set, but now want to keep it.... I'll probably also get the Urban Decay travel set. Thanks for the suggestions - they were perfect!

I bought these for my sister and SIL LM

I have one of these (after a rec on here) and they last all day. Great colours in this pack too.

M&S advent calendars all sold out online. Apparently some are left still in store.
I recently brought this Bellapierre set - lovely mineral cosmetics and a bit of a bargain. Is worth over £100 for £20. So I have ordered some more as gifts.
