For the Makeup Lover

What is the right age that girls should be allowed to wear makeup? It’s up for parents to decide. Always remind your daughter that looks aren’t the most important thing in the world – self confidence is. Some parents feel that 13 is too young for makeup and we completely understand why. 13 year old girls are not all grown up. Thanks to social media, friends, and the mass media, girls are growing up too fast. Feel free to skip this section.

At 13, some girls are just beginning to play around with cosmetics. It’s best to start out with makeup that looks natural and is age appropriate. Gift or starter makeup sets are perfect way to let her try out different samples to find out the ones she likes best. Here are the makeup products she is going to be asking for but some of them might not be appropriate for your 13 year old daughter.

  2. Bat November 21, 2015 at 4:17 pm #

    A lot of these are really great and good portion of my friends received these themselves. I do believe a larger section should be opened up and listed considering how much of the gifts focused more so on physical appearance rather then mentally challenging items. Or even some simple necessities or furnishing.

    • Tee-Lah-Yang April 1, 2016 at 6:26 pm #

      Same here xP

  3. Jenny March 29, 2016 at 5:36 am #

    I thought these were really good! I’m 13 and would love almost all of these if I got them as a present!

  4. Emmeline May 16, 2016 at 2:21 pm #

    • Mya August 9, 2016 at 7:14 pm #

      omg that’s the same for me!! I am looking for my b-day presents right now!

  5. Sarah May 23, 2016 at 8:37 pm #

    Yah I thought most of these were great cause I’m 13 turning 14 soon so I’ve got some new things on my birthday wish list now?

  6. Roxy June 7, 2016 at 4:16 am #

    All these things on the list are definitely on my wish list but I don’t think my parents are going to buy me anything that’s too expensive…

  7. A. L. June 10, 2016 at 6:49 am #

    These are the exact kind of things I’d want if I was turning 13! Great through list, gifts for every kind of girl! ?

  8. Amber July 21, 2016 at 1:30 pm #

    I’m going to be turning 13 next month and many people keep asking me what I want for my birthday and I have no other way to reply than “I can’t thibk of anything right now” or “I don’t care as long as it is from you!” which I am being honest but it’d be nice to have something on the mind. This list included many items that I am considering to mention to my friends and family to drop a hint so I don’t end up with a CareBear (which happened last year ??) Thanks!!

    • Datcoolciu September 10, 2016 at 1:28 pm #

      LOL, gg, I read that and was laughin so hard..It made my day.

    • Arden January 19, 2021 at 6:54 pm #

      Haha this is me all the time… I never get something I want

  9. Mya August 9, 2016 at 7:16 pm #

    im shopping for my b-day present right now!! 😀

  10. Fiona September 19, 2016 at 8:12 pm #

    I really think that these websites need to stop suggesting iPhones and makeup and things like that. What 13 year old looks so bad they need makeup. And do we really need a phone now? I understand if someone has to walk home from school or whatever, but parents can think of that. By putting those sorts of things on websites like this one, teens start to think they must need this sort of stuff.

    • Bree February 13, 2018 at 2:03 pm #

      They put things like iPhones and makeup on here because a lot of girls want them. It’s not that the girl is ugly or they have to have a phone. It’s that a lot of girls have fun experimenting with makeup and most kids in this generation have a phone by the age of ten and might want a new one.

      • Molly ;) November 21, 2020 at 4:50 pm #

        10? That’s too young. That’s when you start getting kids phones? I thought it was age 13 or 14 when you started getting them phones!!!

    • a November 14, 2019 at 2:13 pm #

      hahahahahahah this is from 2016 I am almost sure this person opinion has changed now cause almost every person in my school has a phone from their parents

    • Mia March 21, 2020 at 12:11 pm #

      What if they just want to put make up for fun they can and if there parents get them a phone it’s none of our concern

    • Sophie June 7, 2020 at 9:26 am #

      um well this was from 2016 but even then, idk one person over the age of 11 who doesnt have a phone, and not all 13 yr olds use make
      up, but a lot of them do. ive been using makeup every day since i was 11 soooooo

  11. Joleen October 15, 2016 at 10:57 am #

    I believe that the makeup actually looks good. Lots of makeup is cheap and isn’t in good cases. This site give me good quality and price which I truly love. Now I just hope I get this.

    • Ashley Mailloux December 9, 2017 at 8:01 pm #

      Yeah, no. I need makeup because I look ratchet and I have a phone at 13 because I do Cheerleading and I need to text my mother on it.

  12. Martha November 3, 2016 at 4:45 am #

    The duffle bag and pink clothes, Polaroid, go pro, uggs and shower speaker are really awesome.

    • Sophia VanDerMaelen June 7, 2020 at 9:29 am #

      that was the most 2016 sentence ive ever heard anyone say lmao, but it was 2016

  13. andrea November 15, 2016 at 4:17 pm #

    love this i am 13 i have a page of stuff i want so cool

  14. Allie November 17, 2016 at 7:10 pm #

    YOU JUST GAVE ME A WHOLE BUNCH OF IDEAS!!!!!!!! I lovveee all of them so much i could ask for all of them for christmas!!!!

  15. Anonymous November 20, 2016 at 3:53 pm #

    I am 13 and already have a lot of the stuff on here. I have a fjal raven kanken bag, go pro, mac book air, wireless beats, iPhone 6s, pandora bracelet, lulu lemon leggings, fitbit, UGGs, GOOD quality makeup, ray-bans, etc, etc. Also i’m completely renovating my room not as a christmas present. This website should lose the cheap drug store makeup and perfume. For Christmas i’m asking for a Cartier love bracelet, Tiffany and co. ring, La Mer products, glossier products, Kylie cosmetics holiday edition, MVMT watch, Moncler and Canada Goose Coats, etc. Also your shoe selection sucks, at least put down super stars, stan smiths, stuart weitzman boots or yeezys. All in all, this website didn’t help me at all; people may think I already have a lot on my list but this is just the beginning.

    • Kathy March 17, 2019 at 7:12 am #

      that is called being rich

    • S February 20, 2020 at 2:48 pm #

      Snobby Much?

    • Sopha June 7, 2020 at 9:32 am #

      omg you are literally such a spoiled rotten snob. get out you rich spoiled brat

    • Arden November 12, 2020 at 1:56 pm #

      Rude much? Get a life, no one wants to hear how spoiled you are!

    • Jayleen November 28, 2020 at 7:24 am #

      That’s fine, because I don’t have a tenth of the stuff on this list, and I probably won’t get any, but I am okay with that because I am satisfied and grateful for what I got. Let me tell you, you can go around and brag about everything you have and make it seem as if you are superior and not be humble- but that is on you. At the end of the day, have all the stuff you want and trash talk all you want, it is on you. Being mature, grateful, and having the gift of humbleness is more valuable than being rich. I hope you use your fortune to not gain in life- but to give. Also, to the publisher, spontaneous job on this list, it is evident that you worked very hard, took a lot of time, and put in a lot of thoughtfulness to create such a descriptive list! Thank you!

        Hi Jayleen, Thank you so much for your kind words. We read every single comment good and bad and try to improve our lists. Our list is not perfect and not everybody is going to find it useful, but we try to cover many different interests as possible within the limitations of our platform. Happy Holidays!

    • Alex November 28, 2020 at 10:34 am #

      Wow… spoiled alert

  16. taylor November 21, 2016 at 10:29 pm #

    I want something for my birth you know my phone but my mom said if i get a new phone then i cant celebrate my birth day. what should I do? Should i get a new iphone 7 or have a party for my birth day.

    • Marie December 10, 2016 at 6:23 am #

      Go for the party. 10 years from now you will still have great memories of a fun party with your friends, but that iphone will be completely forgotten.

    • Lillyyy November 19, 2019 at 3:13 pm #

      iphone bc then you can call and text your friends to meet up somewhere to make up for your bday party!!!

  17. Lucy November 22, 2016 at 3:47 pm #

    This made my list so full so quickly

  18. MacKenzie December 3, 2016 at 8:47 am #

    I am 13 and LOVE this article! So many of these just landed a spot on my Christmas list! Thanks!😘❤️

  19. trinity December 3, 2016 at 7:11 pm #

    most of this stuff is on my X-Mas wishlist!!

  20. Macy A Taylor March 26, 2017 at 10:38 am #

    This actually hits the spot on gift giving! I am turning 13 this April, and I saw that a lot of these items were items that are on my WISHLIST! I love how there are categories separating gift items. I will definitely mark this site as a 10/10!

  21. Clr May 15, 2017 at 8:45 pm #

    I am 13 and I would love these.

  22. Luiza October 29, 2017 at 8:47 pm #

    Some of these are absurd. First, don’t encourage 13 year olds wearing make up, that’s way too young.

    • mm
      Toy Buzz November 15, 2017 at 10:10 pm #

      Hi Luiza, thanks for the comment and feedback!

    • Ashley Mailloux December 9, 2017 at 8:02 pm #

      No it’s not. Maybe for you, but not for 90% of society.

    • Halina March 21, 2018 at 12:05 pm #

      Hey sorry but I am a thirteen year old and wear makeup quite often it is quite a normal thing nowadays and I think that it is wrong for parents and other people to think that girls “just wear makeup for boys” I personally think that the majority (not all) 13 year olds would really like some nice makeup for their birthday or for Christmas. I know that this is your personal parenting decision but I just wanted to give my point of view.

      • Arden November 12, 2020 at 1:59 pm #

        I would love like mascara for example but I don’t think my mom would approve at all even though I am 13.

    • Emma ball June 20, 2020 at 1:44 pm #

      ok you obviously have very strict parents because I am 12 and have a lot of makeup and wear it all the time so if you don’t like it then go to a different site

  23. Dylan November 15, 2017 at 4:42 pm #

    I am thirteen, and I am making my Christmas list right now, half of these went on my list! This was a help to me, and I bet a ton others!

  27. Phoebe June 23, 2020 at 12:44 pm #

    I was looking at the list and it definitely did help but some of the items were also on the other lists so I was finding a lot of the same items. Overall it did help.

  28. Milla July 10, 2020 at 10:52 pm #

    I LOVE this list- literally everything I could possibly want was on it
    Not many lists are so good!

    This is such a great list! Thank you so much!

  31. Arden November 12, 2020 at 2:01 pm #

    Thank you for making this list! Even though a lot of this my parents wouldn’t approve, it is really nice to have a “one stop” website that has literally everything girls would want!

    • Arden November 30, 2020 at 12:59 pm #

      Somehow I am still struggling as to what I want, I guess there’s a lot of stuff I want but feel bad or weird asking for it 😐

  32. Priya November 14, 2020 at 6:09 am #

    these were all really good… but tbh some of them are slightly irrelevant
    i really want the zen as f*ck book but i don’t think my parents will let me have it lol

  33. Sophia December 2, 2020 at 12:53 pm #

    I like to read anime and manga a lot. I know this list doesn’t have much on it, but from an adults perspective do you think that it’s okay for kids my age to be watching and reading this kind of stuff? Personally, I think that some of the things I come across would probably make my parents question what I’m watching, but I also don’t know. If you’ve ever watched/read anime/manga, you realize that Japanese culture has no problem creating the ideal story targeted for a teenage audience. And that includes everything. Like normalizing how a boys mind starts drifting towards girls at that age, so they like to sexualize women a lot in anime by giving them large proportions and revealing clothing, and how girls minds start drifting towards boys, so they like to make a lot of them very fit and be topless a lot. Personally I don’t care that they do this, because it doesn’t phase me, but I think that if my mom walked into my room and saw (for example) Momo Yaoyorozu’s hero costume from My Hero Academia without knowing the reasoning behind her revealing clothes, she would most likely tell me to stop watching that show. Although it has never happened, so I’m not sure because at this point my mom doesn’t care if we watch rated R movies with gore and nudity (but that’s live-action stuff). I just want an honest opinion from an adult’s perspective of if you would be okay if your child openly watches and reads that sort of thing. I always get my eye caught on merch, figures, and posters of my favorite anime/manga, but I’m too afraid to ask my mom/dad if I could by any of it.

    I loved this it was so helpful.
