My first e.l.f. order!

I got my first order from e.l.f. and I went a little bit nuts. It's hard not to when the prices are cheap. Of course, in the back of mind I was thinking there's a reason they're cheap. Nonetheless, I got a variety of things to try. All the $1 items were free. You could add 10 $1 items into your cart and get them free. I was sure I did pick 10, but I think I only counted 8. I don't really have any reviews yet, so I'll try to limit myself to no opinions, because it's very picture heavy. I'll just list the item and price on the site. I'll post reviews as I try the products.

First, I just wanted to share this picture with you. When my husband makes the bed in the morning he puts this stuffed giraffe on it. Everyday the giraffe is in a different funny position. He was standing on his head yesterday..hehe! :)

  1. Oooh I LOVE elf!! This looks like a good haul :) Their gel eyeliners are so good! I had the matte topcoat as well, but my sister took it! It separates after a while, so just shake it after to mix back together :P

    Also, I'm having my first giveaway on my blog! I have an ELF Nail Polish that is included.
    I'm giving away other nail polishes & jewelry made by my sister. Come check it out :)

  4. This is an awesome tip! I have heard of ELF but did not know it was this cheap! Scrolling thru i did notice it reminds me alot of AVON products just with a different logo. Especially that mineral eyeshadow! Hmmmmmm-just makes me think-do they have the same supplier on some things? Anyway thanks for the tip on this very reasonably priced product-i will definately be checking them out!

    1. Yes, it's super cheap. But, some products aren't worth it. I haven't used much yet (hehe) but I'll review as I go. The shine sheets aren't the best. I'll try the mineral shadow soon, so I can get a review up. Have fun checking the site out. Make sure to google coupon codes for them, they have something on ALL the time..or you can just ask me, I get emails excessively. :/
