    I would definitely use it, but more than that, giving them the gift receipt would also make it worthwhile. If I didn’t want the kit, being able to return it and get something I do want from Sephora, would be awesome.

    I think it would be a good idea for the 6 Bridesmaid or Best Man that are into makeup, but maybe not so much for the ones that aren’t. PP had a good idea with the gift receipt if you’re comfortable giving it to them – then if the Bridesmaid or Best Man who aren’t that into makeup want to get something else, they have that option.

    @soy:  I don’t think they’ll be offended, especially when they think about the fact that you had 10 Bridesmaid or Best Man (and if you get them something else!). I’m not sure what the overall budget of your wedding is, but I don’t think they’ll be insulted by it 🙂

    I don’t wear a ton of make up, but I’d be stoked to get this, mostly because it’s not something I would buy for myself, and to have the option to play around with it would be something I would enjoy. 
    I would never be offended to find out someone “only” spent 40 bucks on a gift for me. It’s a gift, I’d never question the price of it. Even as Bridesmaid or Best Man. The fact you’re giving them a decent gift that isn’t something they HAVE to use in the wedding is enough for me.

    Completely agree with Cirk. I wouldn’t buy that for myself, but I’d love to get it as a gift.  I think it’s an awesome idea, and I don’t think the bridesmaids gifts are about the amount spent…plus I’d definitely think that cost more than $40!

    @cirk:  +1 

    I totally agree with cirk on this one, and would feel very flattered if I had gotten a gift like this if I were a bridesmaid. Being a bride; however, I ended up making two shirts for each Bridesmaid or Best Man and Maid/Matron of Honor.

    I would absolutely die (in a good way!) if I received that. Years ago I was super into makeup and always wanted a huge palette like that. Something that nice might make me actually get into it again. And like you said, if you give them a gift receipt, they can always trade it in for something else if they dont like that. Win win!

    I’d buy one for myself first to make sure that the product is good and the pigments were long-lasting. I got something similar from Ulta a few years back and it seems like the eyeshadows wore off after like an hour. But if it’s good stuff, then yeah, I’d be over the moon about receiving this.

    i personally would love this gift because i love makeup! i’m not too sure about giving it to the 4 bridesmaids who don’t like makeup. sephora does have nailpolish like you said and a lot of face care products. if they are into that then yes i think you should give it to all 10. if not, then maybe another gift for the ladies who don’t like makeup.
