E.L.F. Eyes Lips Face 55% off Cyber Monday Haul

When E.L.F. was having their 55% off Cyber Monday Sale I decided I had to order some stuff. By some I mean a bunch of stuff. I decided to show everything I got, and because I'm lazy didn't want to do a video haul.

I ordered on November 29th, E.L.F. didn't mark my order as "shipped" until December 15th, more than two weeks later. This was kind of frustrating, but apparently for some people it took even longer. After it was marked as Shipped I got it in two days simply because I live just a state away.
I'm just going to post some pictures of what I got. I will most likely do individual reviews on everything eventually.

Two random E.L.F. EYES LIPS FACE eye set reviews

First I picked up the e.l.f. Essentials Eyes Quad Collections Limited Edition in the Neutral Colors. $5.00
I just checked and it seems these are no longer available They look just like the set above except the colors are neutrals. The set comes with 4 eyeshadow dos and an eyeliner/brush. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and I love them. I haven't used the eyeliner or brush, but the  eyeliner glided on smoothly when I tested it on my hand and the brush feels very soft.

Next I got the e.l.f. Essentials Eye Combo Limited Edition $3
I love all three of these products. The mascara is fantastic as well as both the eyeliners. I love love love this set.

E.L.F. Eyes Lips Face Studio Minty Lip Gloss Review

E.L.F. Studio Minty Lip Gloss $3.00

"The sheer glossy color conditions lips with a minty fresh taste. Can be worn alone or layered with other lip products. Give your lips a beautiful sheen and freshen your breath for instant gratification." 

-eyeslipsface website

I bought two of these lip glosses when E.l.F. was having their 55% Cyber Monday Sale. The colors I choose were Boston and New York City. The online swatches honestly look different than the actual product so keep that in mind when buying online.

Boston and New York are actually really similar in color. Boston is a darker red, but New York City appears to be the same red just a tiny bit lighter. I don't mind this much because I actually do like the colors.

Aside from the difference in advertised color, I really do like these glosses.

They are both very shimmery, which I love. They taste and smell EXACTLY like a candy cane and I really love the taste. If your not a fan of minty things this is not the product for you.

On your lips they do have a very light pigmentation, but as they are glosses, by nature they are very sheer.

I would definitely repurchase these and next E.l.F. order I plan on buying more and different colors.

E.L.F. Eyes Lips Face Studio Lip Balm Review

 E.L.F. Studio Lip Balm $3.00

"Relieves and soothes lips with a drench of moisture. SPF 15 helps to shield lips from harmful sun rays. Softens lips to prevent and temporarily protect against chapped, cracked or chafed lips." -from the eyeslipsface site

A few weeks ago, I used this product for the first time. My lips have been very dry and chapped lately due to a combination of the weather and a passing cold. After applying this, my lips immediately felt and looked much smoother. I was highly impressed with this product.
The SPF 15 is just an added bonus. Some people get the impression that the Sun's rays only affect us Spring-Summer. However, everyday the Sun rises it's rays still affect us. This provides us a little protection.
It also has a very minty taste, almost like a candy cane which in the winter time is a yummy treat.
For $3 it's a bit more than a regular chap stick. But this product is so worth it's tiny price tag.

E.L.F. Eyes Lips Face Mini Dollar Line Haul Review

            For those of you unfamiliar with ELF, they are a discount makeup brand. And when I say discount I mean it. They have so many products for only $1. The dollar line includes lipstick,eyeliner, eyeshadow, and even brushes. They also have two higher end lines the Studio line, which starts at $3 and the Mineral line which also starts at $3.
             They sell these products in Target and K-mart. However, if you buy online, your in for even lower prices. The website always has some sort of promotion going on. It's not rare to find an online coupon for 50% off of the studio or mineral lines.
             The first time I purchased from E.L.F. was in a local store. I was in need of some makeup for an upcoming party and I figured for a dollar even if I didn't like it it was worth a shot. A bought one total face brush, one super glossy lip shine in watermelon, one regular and water proof mascara duo, and one natural radiance blusher in shy. All these products were a dollar.
  •     Total Face Brush   $1.00   I must say, I was not very impressed with this brush.  It was very soft, however it did not work well for me. I only tried it once though. So it may work well, I just didn't like it. On the other hand, the studio blush brush, which i actually just tried today, is amazing.
  •     Super Glossy Lip Shine $1.00  This lip gloss is amazing. It does live up to it's name, and is extremely glossy. Also, for a gloss, it is very pigmented. I liked this gloss so much, that in a recent online e.l.f. order, I bought it in every color available
  •     Regular and Water Proof  Mascara $1.00  Unfortunately, out of package BOTH sides were dry. So I don't know how this product works. This was a waste a $1. However, this may have not been the company's fault, as I did buy it in a retail store and this store may have had it on the shelf for a long time.
  •     Natural Radiance Blusher $1.00  I actually really like this blush. It is a bit powdery, but I don't mine. It is very pigmented. I highly recommend this blush. Also, for $3 the studio blushes are excellent.
       So overall, my first e.l.f purchase was kind of a hit and miss. I have recently placed an order from because I felt it was worth trying a few other products. I am currently still trying everything out, but the things I have tried so  far from my recent purchase are A M A Z I N G.

I think that you should try eyes lips face out. Even if you don't love everything you buy, for $1-$5 it's a steal.

1/15/10 Mini Kmart "Haul" 50% off boxed gift sets

   Today I went shopping with my mother and my boyfriend at Kmart. Not the most exciting way to spend my Saturday. I did pick up two things that I wanted to share though. The  gift sets were 50% off and all the other Christmas stuff was 75% off. So yay!

           The first thing i picked up was this massive makeup set for $7.50 (originally $14.99). I've never heard of this brand, but I'm excited to try everything out and test the quality.

           The second thing I picked up is this body spray set for $5.00 (originally $9.99). I love body sprays because regular perfumes are usually to strong for my tastes.

So yeah
that's it xD
told you it was mini!
