Hello! Yup, another post today! Still Father's Day, still gorgeous outside, and I'm still sitting inside at my computer because that's what I like to do with my life. I did actually go out today and spent some time at the mall, so I'm not a complete shut in...
I bought my very first e.l.f. cosmetics makeup! I have a few of their brushes from the Studio line (and I really like them!), but I've never used any of their makeup products. People speak very highly of e.l.f. products (most of them, anyways. Like any cosmetic company, they have their hits and misses) and all their products are very affordable. I was browsing the e.l.f. website and they were having a deal where you could get a Summer Siren set worth $28 for just $3 with any $25 dollar purchase. The Summer Siren set included a baked eyeshadow palette, one of the items I was interested in trying, so I figured now was a good a time as any to place an order! I ended up spending $35 to get free shipping because as you guys know, I hate paying for shipping.
My order came pretty quickly; it shipped FedEx and was then transferred to my local post office for delivery. Everything arrived safe and sound, though the packaging was a bit sparse. My order was divided into two different clear plastic drawstring bags; one was my order and the other was the Summer Siren set.
And now in no particular order...
Now for the Summer Siren set! As I said, with a $25+ purchase, you could add this $28 kit to your cart and get it for $3. Since I really wanted to try a baked eyeshadow palette, and those by themselves are $10, I went for it! There was one more item that was supposed to be included with this set, but shortly after my order shipped I got an e-mail from e.l.f. saying that some of the kits were mispacked and were missing the eye makeup remover pads. To make up for it, they gave everyone who ordered the kit a $5 gift card. I didn't even want the eye makeup remover pads (they don't have good reviews or good ingredients), so I kind of look at it as I paid $3 for $26 worth of makeup (the eye makeup remover pads are worth $2) and got a $5 gift card. Neat.
We also got three baked cheek products:
And that concludes my very first e.l.f. order! for only about $37 (taxes and all that), I feel like I got a lot of neat stuff I can mess around with and, if I don't like it, I'm not going to feel like I wasted my money. I already placed another order with e.l.f. since they were having a special for Friday the 13th where you could get free shipping with any order $13+ and I had that $5 gift card to burn. I look forward to getting that order and giving those products a try as well.
Thanks for reading! <3
