Makeup isn't the best gift in my experience. There are a brazillion shades of lipstick and eyeshadow and all that stuff, and you're never going to guess the right one. Anyway, I think shopping for that stuff is a big part of the satisfaction for the chicks. The makeup shop is full of stuff designed to pump up the fantasy of beautification -- "Buy our shiat and and you will be transformed from a pimply, premenstrual hippo into a living sex goddess with underwear models massaging her ankles!" is their message. Makeup is the stuff of dreams, so if a dumpy, ordinary farker rolls up and chucks a compact at the GF saying, "Got some face-stuff for ya, hon!" she's apt to be disillusioned, even if he got the colors right.

If you are going to do it, I'd say leave the receipt in with it so she can go exchange it for better stuff. It worked for me once, but she did end up exchanging for a costlier item and having to make up the difference and blaming me for "making" her waste money on an unplanned purchase.

And hay makes lousy makeup, and chances are there's nothing at the feed shop she wants to exchange it for. Don't do it.

HOTY material, right there. Subtle, yet effective. I'll bet half the people that post on the front page don't even see it.
