    it is a great idea, as if they don’t like it they can exchange it for other items. i love the kit,

    It’s too early in the morning so I accidentally clicked no on the poll, but I really meant yes. I think it’s a fun gift and different than traditional and sometimes boring gifts. And if they have a gift reciept to exchange it? Fantastic….I can’t imagine that someone won’t find something they want at Sephora…

    I got one of these as a gift last christmas and I absolutly love it! I use it all the time. One thing I really liked was it came with a color guide (like, how to combine the colors going up and down rows to get certain looks) and it came with makeup tips. 

     

    If I was a bridesmaids and I got one of these I would be so excited!

    I would love it, but I think the gift receipt is a great option! I would think a $40 gift is pretty generous but maybe that’s just me.

    I love it and I feel like with you having 10 BMs if they found out you spend $40 a piece they would still be happy because from my past experiencemy bridesmaids gifts I’ve received have ranged from 30 to 50 dollars

    I like it- especially if you included the receipt. I think $40 for a gift is generous for a bridesmaid- I sincerely doubt anyone would be offended.

    I also think $40 is generous, it looks like it costs more that $40 especially from Sephora, and if I did return it to find that you only spent $40, I would moreso be in admiration of your mad shopping skillz! I don’t know about your girls, but to me it is the quality of the gift that counts not the actual monetary expense.

    I don’t really wear makeup but I would like something like this. Even if it’s not something that I’ll use a lot, it would be way more worthwhile than some piece of jewelry that I’d wear for the wedding and never think about again. Like a PP said, this isn’t something that I’d ever buy for myself so I’d say that would make a pretty good bridesmaid gift. And $40 is fine, especially if you have 10 bridesmaids. The total that you’re going to be looking at (roughly $400) is around how much I spent on my 3 bridesmaids. When you’re talking about a Bridal Party in the double digits, I really don’t think anyone would expect you to spend a fortune on each person.

    Who would think spending $40 each on 10 BM’s was being cheap?

    They need to get a life.

    @soy:  

     

    I think it’s awesome.  If anyone is offended that you “only” spent $40 on them they must be pretty shallow so who cares what they think?  It’s the thought that counts.  Nothing wrong with scoring a good deal on top of it.
