Eyes Lips Face - Awesome Make-up for Fabulous Yet Frugal Friday!

Another edition of Fabulous Yet Frugal Friday... Make-Up Time!!!

A couple weeks ago I co-hosted an Eyes Lips Face (E.L.F.) Make-up at home party with Day Tripping MomELF generously gave us a ton of make-up to play around with.  Oh my gosh, I am in love with their products now!  I must admit only a couple months ago I had never heard of the company, but now I'm hooked.  I've been an avid MAC cosmetics girl for over a decade due to my insanely sensitive skin (I seem to be allergic to just about all skin products... just betting it's the fragrances).  I'm just not that open to playing around with new make-ups since there is a pretty good chance I will be allergic to them!  So the opportunity to play around the products without having to buy them was an opportunity I was not about to miss! 

ELF products are like a hidden secret because they don't do a lot of the heavy marketing we are accustomed to from cosmetic companies.  ELF also relies on its (aggressive & successful) social media strategy to gain new customers.  It won't take long if you take a peek at their website to get the itch to pull out your credit card and buy some.  When someone told me how much the items cost, I seriously said "Yeah Right!" but was more than pleasantly surprised... I was FLOORED when I saw for myself.  The average price is between $1.00 - $3.00 each item.  And no, that is not a typo!  The high end product is the AWESOME minerals line. And remember, high end cost at ELF is $3.00/each. I have never used the more expensive Minerals line make-ups before (again, I'm just not in to spending a gazillion bucks on something just to find out I'm allergic to it... been there... done that. *ahem* Coco Chanel). 

For $20 you can buy the entire set (including brushes).  If you become a fan of ELF on Facebook you will be the first to hear about exclusive deals ranging from deep discounts (Yeah, as if the products aren't a steal already!) to free shipping codes.  Also be sure to follow them on Twitter.

My husband is pleasantly surprised at the dramatic decrease in my spending on make-up.

I've heard of E.L.F. products, but have never tried them. I love great, affordable finds - make-up, even better! Thanks!
