Great Make-up Deals!


I originally received an e-mail about this cosmetic line, e.l.f.; though the e-mail's origins are proved to be false, e.l.f. really does offer $1.00 only products. *In the e-mail, e.l.f. was affiliated with both Nordstrom's and Bloomingdales, however, they are in no way connected. You can find lots of these products in your local drugstore.*
I'm a make-up junkie, but hardly ever buy any because they are sooooo expensive. Just go to www.eyeslipsface.com to order yours. You can enter "carolina" into the coupon code at checkout to receive 50% off of orders up to $15.00. Enter "winnerelf" to receive 50% off of orders of $15.00 or more. I don't know if you can use more than one coupon code for one order, but you can sure try. There are several codes I found on this website ("freemini" for a free miniature makeup kit, and "gtlbangle" for 3 free gold bangles, etc.).
I've already made my purchase. With shipping, each item came out a little less than a dollar each; you can't find that kind of deal at most drugstores, either. I'm not too sure about the quality of the make-up, I'll probably end up getting what I paid for- hopefully not. ;) I just hope that all the items were in stock and shipping doesn't take too long. Thanks again, Aimee. I usually use Snopes.com to verify most e-mails, but just failed to do so this once. But hey, I still got a great deal; I just hope I like the make-up. tbd

Just FYI e.l.f. cosmetics aren't changing their name. They have and always will be e.l.f. that email was a hoax. You can buy e.l.f. at lots of drugstores. You can get good deals ordering online though. I have tried several of their products though and some of them I like. Though I am somewhat picky. Their professional make up line is the best for your buck. There are some definite things that I like of theirs though that are only a dollar BUT I don't like all of their regular products. Oh and also shipping takes forever with them and sometimes you don't get everything you ordered or a refund.

I better get everything I ordered or I'll go down there and beat someone up, lol. Thanks for the heads up, I just edited my post. :)

Hahaha, I don't mean to scare you (I hope I didn't), I just want you to know so you can make sure to check that you have gotten everything. I almost did a review on this brand but I wasn't sure if anyone would benefit. I will say though that it's all pretty fun stuff for the price. I really like the bronzers and some of the eye shadow quads are nice. All of their stuff is very pigmented, it's just finely milled so you don't need to rub your brush in a lot for color payoff. The eyeshadows are good as long as you have a good base. I also love the clear eyebrow gel/mascara. I don't use the mascara I just use both sides for my eyebrows. The lip plumping glosses are decent. I have like 4 of those. And like I said a lot of their professional line items are pretty good too. Anyway, have fun with your stuff. It is nice to have stuff to practice with and play around with too that's not horrendously expensive! Oh and the packaging is pretty crappy but for a dollar you really can't go wrong.

Let me know how you like it. Then I might order some. LOL Seriously, I looked on their site and they have alot of stuff. So much that I was having a hard time deciding what to get. I ended up just getting off and saying I would do it later. Let us all know when you get it.

Good Luck. You will have to let me know how you like it. I will be looking for updates...

I got an "amended" email from the girl who sent it to me yesterday. Although the original email was pretty much bogus, the makeup still is $1 and still is pretty good apparently. I was told you could buy it from stores, but who wants to drive to a store when you can get it online!!! Let me know what you think once it arrives. I'll make my decision then... :-)
