When I was 15 it was all about Avon, Boots No 7 and that was about it. It's my neices birthday soon and I'm guessing a Heather Shimmer lippie isn't quite going to cut the mustard so I'm looking for ideas. She's daft about make up.

Urban decay, Mac and benefit.

If you're used to Avon prepare for a shock 😁

My 15 year old cousin uses Benefit

I can't usually get past the MAC counter for teens.

eatshitderek I think you're taking about the urban decay naked palette?

I agree, the naked palettes are popular with teens but pretty expensive.
MAC products seem to be universally liked by under 20s.
For cheaper products bourjois, rimmel, loreal, revlon

Shit, that's all really expensive stuff! I don't want to be the 'embarrassing auntie' though! grin

That shade of orange and those eyebrows need heavy duty paint, "Whatamess" grin

Try NYX. Its much more reasonable, I think boots sell it now, and my 16yo likes it

Makeup revolution is popular. The new palette fortune favours the brave is decent and the radiance palette
Sleek is a good one too
NYX for lip stuff

Revolution at Superdrug. Have to crowbar my way through hoards of teens to get a look in!

Younger teens: stuff from Claire's and Maybelline

Oh god I feel old - why would you want to put anything on your face with "decay" in the name? confused

Um, I have a fair amount of urban decay make up...I'm old, well definitely not young, lol.

They do good colours and it goes on well and stays on.

My 17 yo dad uses Mac

Ludwsys Thu 24-Mar-16 23:36:59

DSD, my dad only wears make up at weekends! Lol

skippy67 Thu 24-Mar-16 23:46:05

My 15yo loves kiko make up.

If you're unsure maybe a gift card would be better? Large Boots stores sell Benefit and Smashbox and MAC cards are available from their site with free delivery.

Just ask her if there's anything she's got her eye on, no point spending ££ on items you don't even know she will like. What colours does she wear and what brands does she already use.

In some branches of Boots you can get 4 small pick and mix Benefit products in a free make up bag for £15. Would be a pretty cool teen present perhaps?
