When it comes to holiday gifting, your BFF should be a no-brainer, right? You know her the best out of anyone, you have similar interests, and you don’t mind splurging a little if you find the perfect present.

But what happens when your bestie’s interests revolve solely around beauty products? What if her personal makeup collection looks more like a Sephora store than, well, a Sephora store does?

If that's the case, then it’s time to call in some beauty-obsessed backup.

Lucky for you, we've been on a mission to find the newest products fresh from our favorite brands, from limited-edition gems to expertly-curated sets.

And the best part? We can guarantee that your product junkie friend doesn’t own ANY of them (yet).

So when it comes to holiday shopping for your ride-or-die, don’t stress — frowning isn’t good for the face, after all.
