ELF Makeup coupon code

photo by Porcelaingirl

I posted last Friday about what's in my makeup bag, and much of what resides there is
ELF makeup, short for Eyes Lips Face. Here is a little more background information, in case your interested. At the bottom of the post, I've included my picks and a coupon code!

From their website, "...Beauty comes from feeling and being your best, an inner confidence that translates to the outer-world as attractiveness...We at e.l.f. believe that innovative technology, quality ingredients and superb delivery systems should not be limited to prestige retailers."

ELF products have been featured in Parenting, Fitness, Everyday with Rachel Ray, and Self, just to name a few. They were also featured on the show "How to Look Good Naked" the last time I watched. (which was some time ago, back when I was up most nights feeding the newborn!)

The products are not tested on animals and there are several products that support charities. Their nailpolish is free of toluene, formaldehyde, and DBP (dibutyl phthalate).

This was enough, paired with the *can't go wrong for $1* price to get me to try a slew of products about 2 years ago. I signed up for email alerts and generally buy when there is a good coupon code out there. I have been known to go in with several friends since most coupon codes require a $25 purchase, and I'll be honest, I just don't want that much makeup!

My picks:

Brightening Eye Color - I love these. Probably a tie for my favorite product. These come in a great variety of palletes and are long lasting. They don't tend to form a line in the crease of my eyelid, which is a pet peave of mine!

Theraputic Conditioning Balm - I was a tried and true chapstick girl until I discovered these. My favorite is the orange, I love the feel and the balm stays on well and smells delicious!

Plumping Lip Glaze - I haven't worn much of this since Sweetpea was born, but I love the feel of it on my lips. It lasts well through the day and helps keep me from licking my lips, a bad habit of mine!

Nailpolish - I really like these polishes. They last well and I appreciate that they are free of some of the more nasty chemicals you can find in other nailpolishes.

Brushes and Tools - I love the blending wedges, brushes, eyelash curler, and tweezers.

Next time I purchase from ELF, I'm going to try the new bath and body line. If you've tried it, please let us know how you like it!

Things I'm not a fan of: I am not a fan of the foundation, mascara, or concealer. On the upside, I wasn't the least bit upset to discard them for the price!

Okay, now for the coupon code. Purchase $25 in products between now and the end of this month and get $2 shipping using code: EGSHIPT at checkout.

Hi Steph,

I'm really new to this blogging stuff and I accidentally deleted your comment instead of posting it. Sorry.

Where do you get your photos for your blog from? I've gone through several out there, and I can't tell if its "legal" to use on a blog that will be eventually monetized? Thanks!

Hi Monica! It looks from your blog archive like we started our blogs at about the same time, I can totally relate to being a newbie about a lot of this stuff! If you email me, I'll send you the link to a great article along with some specifics regarding where I get my pictures and how to make sure you're using them legally. My email is in my profile. I'll leave this comment on your blog too.
