Christmas e.l.f.

December 9, 2008

I was recently sent a chain e-mail telling me that Nordstrom acquired a makeup company called “Eyes Lips Face” and that the brand was now selling away all of its makeup at $1+ prices. I had never heard of Eyes, Lips, Face before, and after doing some research I discovered this:

e.l.f. Plumping Lip Glaze

e.l.f. Plumping Lip Glaze

The Nordstrom fact may or may not be true, but ELF prices have been the same for at least the last two years! Their philosophy is to provide their consumers products with the same ingredients and packaging technology as higher end, more expensive counterparts- but they sell most of their products @ $1 a pop!  I ordered a few things just to test them out (angle brush, blush brush, red “plumping” lip gloss, and brow pencil/highlighter) but I’m really not expecting anything phenomenal. They have been featured in magazines such as Allure, Okay Magazine, etc., but I’m still skeptical. The great thing is- if I’m disappointed, I’m only out $10! That can’t even buy me 1/3 of a mascara from my usual brands! Has anyone ever tried this brand? If so- leave a comment and tell me what you thought. I will be sure to update you when my shipment gets in.
