ELF order came!

A few posts ago I mentioned a wonderful website called which sells bargain cosmetics, mostly for $1 each.

I placed my order on the 2nd and it made it to me on the 12th, but I’m sure part of the issue with the shipping length was due to the Labor Day holiday. I have heard people say in the past that shipping has been has fast as a few days and as long and 3 weeks.

This is what I received for a grand total of $17.45……

That’s a lot of stuff! I used a coupon code, which they have tons of different ones, and got $7.50 off my order which includes

Blending Eye Brush
Smudge Eye Sponge
Eyeliner Brush
Eye Shadow Brush
Brightening Eye Color Quad (in Drama)
Shimmering Facial Whip (in Toasted)
(3) Duo Cream Eye shadows (in Black Licorice, Mocha Swirl and Butter Pecan)
(2) Mineral Eye shadows (in Socialite and Glamorous)

I haven’t gotten to try everything out yet but I can give a little low down on what I have tried….

Duo Cream Eye Shadows – They are great! The pigments are good, not too intense but still very pretty. They are creamy and smooth and go on really well and have decent staying power. I wore them out today and they were still looking good this evening.

Candy Shop Lip Gloss tin (in Frosting Fanatic) – This stuff smells fantastic and offers a slightly golden shimmer to the lips. It is thick but goes on smooth. It smells so yummy!!

Plumping Lip Glaze (in Ruby Kiss) – The color side is lovely and sheer. As far as the plumping side goes, despite the tingling feeling I didn’t see a lot of plumping in my lips. I think as far as plumping glosses go I am going to stick with my Sally Hansen Lip Inflation. The packaging is also a bit deceptive. From the side it looks like there is a good amount of product. But when you turn it over and look from the bottom you realize that there really isn’t very much. But at the same time when you’re only paying a dollar for a product I suppose you can’t expect to get extremely large amounts but I do wish there were a little bit more.

Overall the quality is pretty amazing for products of this price and I’m really happy with my purchases. I will definitely be ordering from them again!
