I’m doing some early holiday shopping and bought a Stila lip gloss sampler and a bareMinerals eyecolor set to send to two silbings (one is 20 and the other is 24). I know the younger one wears eye make up and I think the older one would use the lip gloss (but I’m not 100% sure). I figure, at the very least, they can swap with each other…. I could also send them one of each, but I think that’s overkill (and more than I wanted to spend).
So, my question is: which gift would you prefer?

Do they enjoy having make up bought for them? I never have like either of those brands or products and would prefer people don’t buy me make up. I think maybe a Sephora gift card is a better choice unless you’re sure they like those products.

I’m kind of with theshannondee: in the fact that I LOVE wearing makeup but I am super picky about what brands and colors I choose. I do like both of those but i would probably use only 1 or 2 of the glosses and not sure about the eye color as I’m super picky about what colors I wear.
Try and opt for something not so tailored to a personal taste, unless you know they LOVE those particular brands AND colors.

theshannondee: MrsTtoB: Super helpful! I don’t know if they like either of those brands, but I know the eye color would work… and I figured with the lip gloss there’d be something in there they’d like in the set… but I could see a lot of them going to waste.

oracle: I know if it was me I would rather pick out something special I would use myself even if it was $15 rather than a predetermined palette.

The eyeshadow kit! I love that brand & I have way too many lipglosses already.

Are these the colors you want to give ? If so, the eyeshadows are good neutral, and I would love to have these. I’m not a big fan of lipglosses, I have long hair and if it’s a bit windy outside, it sticks to my lower lip and I find it very annoying. Based on the picture, the colors are also too ”girly” for my taste. When I put lipstick on, I opt for a natural or a more sophisticated color (classical, like burgundy shades or red), not glittery or bright pink. Again, it depends on your sister’s personality and style, but at 24, I wouldn’t have used half of these colors to be honest.

I also hate my sister buying me makeup and honestly most of my makeup that I didn’t buy sits there unused.

I voted for the lip gloss, I rarely wear eye make-up though.
