E.L.F.


I got this message from Megan who got it from Lauri and I was intrigued so I checked it out. "go to www.eyeslipsface.com and check it out. Nordstrom just bought this company and they are liquidating their current inventory. Everything is $1 and then you get an extra 50% of of your order of $20 when you put “carolina” where it says promotional code. I just got some fun stuff! Have Fun!"

Uhm, so I am under a severely strict budget right now, and #1 I am trying to break my habit of "buying ahead" (like hitting the end of summer sales, for next summer's sizes of the kids. Not for me, oh I haven't bought anything since Nordy's sale, which all was returned, and before that, who knows when, I am still wearing my Diesel's I purchased after I had H - remember Ryan and Rachel? I digress in degrees, so my kids are constantly wearing clothes too large, because they last longer right? Yes, like when I see an old picture of H, at our old house, which means he was like 3, in the same shirt he was wearing today, yes, I have a problem. Poor Pe (my little girl who I am estimating will be in size 18-24 months next summer, by the way.)) So on a budget, yadda yadda, but I see $1, and since I am trying to also stick to rule #2 $5 items really add up. I thought about all of those $3 or $5 Target purchases that really add up, so I see $1 and think I can hang with that, wrong! But I will certainly let you know if all of the nail colors in the e.l.f. line, the lip plumper colors they had left, and the 3 different types of foundation, blush, eye shadow compacts, 12 brushes, and 1 Ultimate kit work out. Seriously though, if you have control and you are in need of anything, everything is seriously $1. And I've already found out they have excellent customer service, since I forgot to add the coupon code, so I emailed them for forgiveness, and they promptly added it right into my order (yeah $10!). I am kind of wondering if the make-up is like sample sized or miniature of something?!

Me too. Amen to it all. And spending $50 on A TON of crap (sort of). Although it will be fun to play with and look pretty...or something. Until Ryan figures out the $$.

Thanks for the tip! I just placed an order and can't wait to get it!!! It's so easy to spend just a $1 at a time!!! ;)

MarySue said...

On my way to check it out. Thanks for the heads up...we older gals need more of this "stuff" to look good. Oh forget that lame old gal excuse, I've been plastering on make up since I was a kid. Just plain love the stuff. Sign me the painted lady!

Boy did I have fun shopping the $1 store. Even got a make-up bag and thanks for the code word. That helped. Here's to looking beautiful to all you girls!

Wow! Thanks for the nice link, I'm excited!!! I love new makeup, but I hate paying for it. This will be perfect! I hear you on the shopping thing. I am trying to tell myself that I don't need to buy clothes just because they are a good price!

Do you know how long it's been since I've gotten make-up? I can't even remember. Thanks so much. Went shopping from home and loved it.

Annette, I want you to know that I feel very honored to have my name posted on your blog! Megan gave me your address and I have been catching up on the Stayners all day. So HELLO Stayners!!! I love you guys!!! And can I just say that you all make very cute babies!

I don't think you're along in justifying the $3 and $5 stuff at Target. I too am on a budget- just getting ready for baby minus one income. But when you see a cute outfit, how can you resist? BTW, I love all of your cute comments on blogs!

JoJo &/or Bob said...

Yeah... I totally bought a ton, too. I love makeup! It's true! I'm excited to see how the products work out... And I will for sure blog my analysis. :)

Marie said...

Kristen said...
