I think it’s a very nice set.

Personally, I don’t wear makeup often, and if I do it’s a quick swipe and I’m out the door, so maybe this wouldn’t be the best/most useful gift for me. You know your bridesmaids best, so if it’s something they’d use or appreciate, then go for it, it’s a steal!

*And I’m always an advocate of a hand written, heartfelt letter to each gal thanking her for her friendship and her support on this special day. Thriftiest gift you can give them in addition to the other gifts and I bet they’ll love it.  🙂

I’m with @indibee:  I don’t wear makeup so this gift would be useless for me, I’d probably end up regifting it.  So just make sure all your girls are into makeup and you should be fine.  It looks like an awesome set if you’re a daily make-up person : )

wow that is really thoughtful! I would very happy to receive that. So far my bridesmaid’s gifts tend to be “the jewelry you wear the day of the wedding,” which is nice but not nearly as thoughtful as this gift.

Do you know anything about the quality of ELF? (I don’t so it might be fine?) But I’d consider getting a known name….What about this?

I prefer to buy my own make-up products b/c I’m picky.  I also would prefer a heartfelt letter.  How about a cheap pair of earrings instead?

Agree with the bee’s above.  Don’t get the brush set.  I got a really nice card from a friends weekend a stood up in a few years back and I still have it!  She mentioned all the things we’ve done together and how much our friendship meant to her.  If you still want to give them a gift as well perhaps something homemade (knit a hat or homemade soap?).  I hope that helps!
