A few years ago, I discovered E.L.F. (which stands for Eyes, Lips, Face) just in time for stocking stuffers at Christmas. It’s a great, cheap product line if you are interested in checking out new techniques and don’t want to splurge on department store brands. I especially love their super sparkly mineral eye shadows. Last week, I came across a deal on one of the savings blogs I read that had a coupon code for ten (TEN!!!!!) free mineral eye shadows with a $25 purchase. I couldn’t pass up this great deal. These shadows are only $3 each, but that meant $30 in savings!

I bought all this loot for $25, which included free shipping thanks to a coupon code I found on


That’s ten mineral eye shadows, one pressed shadow duo, mineral foundation, mineral veil warmth, mineral blush, four nail polishes and one gel eyeliner. I also got a regular self-sharpening mineral eyeliner.

Here are the shadows I got:

Left to right: Caffeine, Celebrity, Confident, Earthy, and Golden

 DSCN0819 DSCN0828

Left to right again: Sassy, Smoldering, Socialite, Trendy and Wild

I tried out the nail polishes also.

Left to right are Passion Pink, Copper, Fire Coral (which is close to my favorite OPI color, Cajun Shrimp!), and Fluorescent Pink. The only one I ended up not being crazy about is the Passion Pink. It looked to have an iridescent tint to it, but it looks a little matte on.

I recommend you check out E.L.F. if you’d like some cute new colors!

Wow, what a deal! Do you think the quality is comparable to MAC?
