Makeup Gift Ideas For Every Type Of Friend

With all the drama that’s been going on in the KarJenner household over these past few years, it comes as no surprise that the latest scandal between Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods have indeed sparked another series of chaos in the town of Calabasas. You’ve probably heard about it all on Instagram, memes flooding your timeline on Facebook, a heck load of shade-throwing tweets on Twitter and of course, article after article of Tristan cheating on his beau with her sister’s best friend. Oh, the horror…

In case you missed out on the news: Tristan Thompson, aka Khloe Kardashian’s “baby daddy”, was allegedly rumoured to have hooked up with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods, at a party late last February. All of this happened just days before the Kardashian gave birth to her daughter. Could it get any worse than that?

Bridges were burnt, hearts were broken. But if there’s one thing this saga has thought us, it’s probably the power of true friendship. Don’t get yourself confused, we’re talking about Malika and Khloe BTW. To show your appreciation to your beloved friend (or frenemy), here are a few thoughtful gift ideas for every type of friend that you have.

The LOYAL Friend

BECCA x Khloe Kardashian & Malika Haqq Bronze, Blush & Glow Palette (Limited Edition), $66. Available at Sephora.

What does it mean to be a loyal friend? In our opinion, being loyal to a friend means listening to them, being there for them when they need you, (and of course, not cheating on your best friend’s sister’s beau). In Khloe Kardashian’s case, it’s safe to say that she’s definitely blessed with a loyal babe like Malika Haqq that she can always count on.

Besides their admirable friendship timeline, the two even have their own collab together with BECCA Cosmetics! One of the key highlights to the collection: their Bronze, Blush & Glow Palette, fo’sure!

BECCA x Khloe Kardashian & Malika Haqq Ultimate Lipstick Love (Limited Edition) in Khloe’s Cupid’s Kiss, $36. Available at Sephora.

And if you’re looking for a fail-proof lippie to match, then this lipstick from the collab might just work for you (and your bestie)! But if this isn’t your shade, fret not — it comes in 4 different shades, so if the MLBB shade isn’t your kind of hue, then their range of fiery hot shades might just fit your pick.

BECCA x Khloe Kardashian & Malika Haqq Glow Letters (Limited Edition), $28. Available at Sephora.

This one’s for that one friend that we’re oh-so-thankful for. They’ve been there for us through thick and thin. Take, for instance, Malika’s undying loyalty to her Kardashian bestie.

So what better way to show your appreciation to your best friend than to get your glow on with these innovative mini baked highlighter letters from their recent BECCA x Khloe & Malika collab. Each jar is unique on its own as each letter is hand-pressed and is distributed randomly across. Pat it on your cheekbones, eyes (and whichever area you wish to highlight) for a soft focus glow.


Kylie Cosmetics x Kourtney Kardashian Collab, USD16. Available at Kylie Cosmetics.

We all have that one friend who always has something up her sleeves. A secret or two perhaps? We’ll never know for sure. But lesson learnt: when it comes to telling the truth, it’s always best to tell the full story. Sadly, for many like Jordyn, she had to find out the hard way.

Now, Jordyn may have denied hooking up with Tristan Thompson during her interview on Red Table Talk, but could it all be true? Even if that’s the case, her lips are sealed. We may (or may not) be throwing shade here, but uhm… we’re kinda diggin’ this French Kiss shade. Don’t you think so, Jordyn?


Kim Kardashian West Beauty Glam Bible Mascara, USD18. Available at KKW Beauty.

There are times when we fall into the deep trenches of conflict and we’re always looking for a shoulder to lean on. If you’re looking for a gift for that one friend who’s always got your back (no matter how troubled you are) then this mascara’s the one. Apart from the fact that it gives your lashes some volume, this mascara also holds your lashes in place!

While the cheating allegations of Jordyn and Tristan are ongoing, Kim Kardashian’s reaction to the whole saga was very on brand for the reality star. After falling out with Tristan, Khloe sought support from her sisters, especially Kim, who has been supporting her through constant contact. Now men may come and go, but the bond that you share with your girlfriends will always hold strong (okay, maybe not for Jordyn’s case).

The SASSY Friend 

Lip Ammunition in Unicorn Blood, $32. Available at escentials Paragon, TANGS, and

Load up your puckers and set fire with these hot Lip Ammunition by your favourite cult beauty brand, Jeffree Star Cosmetics. Now we’ve all seen how dramatic things have spiralled over the past few days and when it comes to drama, you can bet that Jeffree’s always in it.

If you’ve no clue what we’re talking about, here’s the latest 411: Celebrity, makeup artist, model, and entrepreneur, Jeffree Star, took to Instagram recently after the scandal broke and revealed that Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson have been hooking up way long before the party started! All hell broke loose and the Internet went crazy over Jeffree’s claims, with many doubting what Jordyn claimed she didn’t do on that fateful night with Tristan. Ooooh, how juicy…


By Terry Baume De Rose Lip Scrub, $50. Available at all escentials stores, TANGS and

For that one friend who knows what she’s worth. When it comes to looking for a man, she’s got her expectations and she won’t settle for less — no scrubs, please and thank you. (BTW, shoutout to all the single and independent ladies out there, you know who you are!)

If you want kissable lips that speak volumes, you might want to consider prepping them with this Sugar Lip Polish from Fresh. Made with brown sugar crystals, this lip scrub helps to exfoliate and condition with shea butter and jojoba oils, leaving your lips incredibly soft and smooth…

The EX-Friend

Kylie Cosmetics Jordy Velvet Liquid Lip Kit Set (SOLD OUT)

Best friend? More like THE END. Jordyn Woods and Kylie Jenner have been inseparable since they met in middle school and we’ve always dreamed of having #friendshipgoals like theirs. Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever and sometimes the friendships that we hold close to our hearts live a lot shorter than our heart’s desire.

Slather on Kylie Cosmetics coveted Velvet Liquid Lip Kit in Jordy and kiss your friendship goodbye… Although these lip kits may have been sold out ever since the scandal broke (and after Kylie slashed its price into half), we’re still convinced that this shade would have made a cute hue for your puckers.

Kylie Cosmetics Jordyn Palette, USD45. Available at Kylie Cosmetics.

On the other hand, the ex-BFF palette is still available on Kylie Cosmetics and surprisingly it isn’t on sale! Say whut? Break up or makeup, whatever the case is, it’s hard to deny that this eye-conic palette does make a great addition to your stash.
