Hello my pretty little petunias!
My boyfriend and I went to Target this weekend to get workout pants, tools, and makeup. And can I just say: out of all the modern convinces my generation and those since will be fortunate enough to have at their disposal the one we take for granted THE MOST is the genius concept of the one stop shopping experience. Let us have a moment of silence for the time-saving bargain hunting Utopia we have probably come to take for granted…
For those of you who don’t know you can find a brand called E.L.F (stands for eyes.lips.face) at Target. To my knowledge it is the only retailer that you can purchase them in person from. Otherwise you have to go online to http://www.eyeslipsface.com/ I HAVE TO SAY: There are tons of reviews and complaints floating around the internet about the lack of customer service when buying from them on line. I read at least ten different stories while researching the company about people who received an order that was only half there…OR the wrong things were sent. Maybe the company got wind of these problems and up’d their game a little since…but just in case I thought I would warn you 🙂
The GREAT thing about E.L.F is the price. You CANT beat it. The products range anywhere from $1-$10. I personally havent seen any of the products go for more than that so it makes this line PERFECT for the budget conscious beauty addict. The prices also make it ideal to load up your basket at target and try several items at a time. And if you don’t like any….your only out six bucks. For me…thats amazing. Because as I’ve said before there is NOTHING I hate more than picking something up, getting it home and HATING it. Once again, that is the huge dis advantage to buying at drugstores/target/Wal-Mart.
I was able to pick up 7 different items from ELF for about $25. Some were permanent staples that I always see in the ELF section…and then to my surprise I turned the corner and found a WALL of ELF gift sets. Everything from eye palettes, to eye liner sets, lip gloss collections, and more. Nothing was more than $10. I’m not sure how long they will be doing this so I would rush over there and check it out if I were you 🙂
I’m pretty happy with the items that I picked up. Most of them I chose because they are dupes for high-end items that I have had for quite some time and really do enjoy. I am SOOOO excited to see how well they hold up to each other. Since I did JUST scoop these goodies up, I’m not going to share my thoughts on them just yet. I want to have enough time to see how they look on the skin, how well they blend, and the staying power of each item. So please keep those pretty peepers open for the final say on the products!
I hope you all had a WONDERFUL weekend and are gearing up for a wonderful week! I have lots coming up for you guys!
