Spotted: e.l.f. Display in a College Bookstore

Over the past few years, I've blogged about e.l.f. expanding to select Walgreens stores, 7-11 stores (yes, 7-11!), Old Navy, Walmart and lots of other retailers. But this one's new to me:

e.l.f. display inside a college bookstore

Thanks to reader @lacquermehappy on Instagram for sharing the above pic of an e.l.f. display she spotted at a local campus bookstore. How awesome is that?

If you're a college student (or faculty, admin or any other type of college employee!) I would love to know if you have e.l.f. at YOUR campus. It's been a long time since I graduated from college, so I'm pretty out of touch with the cosmetics brands that are available on college campuses these days. I know that SDSU had a MAC counter for a while but I think it closed.

Thanks again, @lacquermehappy, for the great tip and pic!

  1. I think we used to have a display of Sinful Colors nail polishes or something like that, but thats pretty cool that they have ELF make up.

  2. My school has a Clinique counter in the student bookstore actually! I've also spotted elf products in a spinning stand just like this one in the grocery store near my college.

  3. Not a bookstore, but I've seen this exact spinning display at a grocery store near me -which is totally awesome because I'd have to go 20+ miles for drugstore beauty otherwise (80+ for a Target)! I'm just sad there were no nail polishes...

  4. I've seen little elf single-sided displays at 7-11's near my house (long island, NY)

  5. I've seen that display at a grocery store in my area. There are only two or so of that chain around, and that's how I first got started on e.l.f. Couldn't resist those dollar buys!

  7. Ha! I noticed the other day when I went to buy a phone charger in the bookstore that they had a whole e.l.f. rack. Nice, especially since Ricky's is no longer carrying e.l.f.

  8. St. John's University has a Butter London display in their college bookstore! I was surprised by it, but I'd be so happy if they started selling ELF. C Brushes for daaaays!

  9. I wish we had makeup stands like this when I was on campus! Would have given me more incentive to hang around more lol

  13. Mizzou has a Clinique counter, along with several Boots, Butter London and Smashbox products :). There might be more by now (that was in December) and I just haven't been to look.

  14. As far as I know there are no elf stands in Ireland :( I would love one on my campus, we only have Rimmel, Essence and Catrice

  15. I think its a smart move on e.l.f's part. Their price point is perfect for the average college student.

  16. I've seen some of the products at the Iowa State bookstore.
