Goodies to fill BM gifts

Hey girls! I got the bms those monogrammed cosmetic cases and I want to fill them with a bunch of cute stuff, but everything gets really expensive. I don't want to do jewelry, I was thinking more makeup and fun stuff like that!


Any thoughts what I should put in them? Where are places I can get more bang for the buck (dirty - don't laugh!) I was thinking E.L.F. but I didn't know if it was any good.


Thoughts?


TIA!!

yeah, i agree...unless you really know what shades your girls like, actual makeup might be tough.  but fruity lip balms, nail polishes, etc are great.  or you could find inexpensive compact mirrors to put in them...kinda like these...

d1rty: i think she thought you'd laugh cuz she said "Bang". HAHAHAA..


ELF is a good choice. I like their lip gloss that has a little brush at the tip. Their eye shadows are cute. I wouldnt recommend their eye lash curlers cuz someone said they chopped thiers off. Oh! I really like their brushes! you could also go to target. they have cute stuff in their travel section!

I love my ELF.  $1 each and their lipglosses are the best!

I'm using ELF as part of my girls' gifts - I love the makeup. I'm steering clear of eyeshadows, etc., because I don't want to pick shades for them when I don't really know what they'd like. They're getting a couple of nail polishes, lip glosses, and the shine eraser sheets.

Perhaps check out what's on sale at Bath & Body Works and The Body Shop looking for some fru-fru body wash, etc. Also check out mini bottles of random stuff from Avon.com. They often have some good prices. Also check out Target.


I ordered a bunch of stuff from E.L.F. a while ago, and the quality was better than I expected. Perhaps stock them up on lip gloss (the cell phone charm lip gloss is cute!), nail polish, brushes, oil blotting sheets, etc. All the little necessities that aren't color specific. That cuticle pen would be good too... I think I'm going to order one...


Good luck!

I am doing this too but more like a survival kit for them to have throughout the day, have been collecting things when I find them on sale.


So far have bought some cute little diamante compacts and will engrage their name on them, mini bottles of perfume, clear lipgloss, party feet. I still plan to get a cute little pack of mints, bottles of water, mascara, and will probably get them a nice clutch too.
