So...what do you think about this new beauty subscription service from e.l.f.? Think you might give it a shot?

Thanks again, Katrina and "Unknown" for the heads-up about this one!


  1. hmm. While it may be worth it for what you get, to me that's on the expensive side for a subscription service. But since it's every 8 weeks I guess it's ALMOST comparable to Ipsy. However with all the sales and coupons Elf offers all the time, I'm not sure if the price is worth it when you don't know what you're getting. Just my opinion :)

    1. I agree, I will have to see some actual shipments with reviews on quality first.

  2. I think I'll skip out on this one. As much as I love elf products, I'm not much of a surprise girl. I think I'll stick to Julep and the occasional ipsy box.

  3. $26 seems like a lot when my experience with elf products has been pretty hit and miss. I would rather just read some reviews/blogs and purchase just the products that get good reviews for a few dollars every now and then.

  4. Interesting. I just bought one month to see what it's like.... I will report back once I receive. ;) I'm such a sucker for these mystery box things!

  5. I stock up on my fav elf products like, once a year and I barely pay more then 40 bucks. I think I'll be passing on this one... I mean, who really needs a new giant Elf palette every 8 weeks?? Not me!

  6. I bought it the first second I saw it. I'm also getting ipsy, but the idea of trying out some ELF stuff that I might not buy myself was interesting. I received it earlier this week. Loved it. It was exactly $40 worth of products. (Of course you get a lot of sales on their website). I did get about 3 things I already owned but I just gave them to my mom as she'll like them. I also found a couple of things that are things I wouldn't have bought - for example the Makeup Removing Wipes. I think they are completely comparable to the Simple wipes. Removes eyeliner and mascara with no problem at all.

  7. E.L.F. has some really nice sales. I can't see myself buying this because I can get my E.L.F. products on sale for half price.

  8. I think this is an awesome service/idea for people who may not have tried elf before or are not that familiar with the brand but are curious to try it, because for me I'm an elf addict and have tried a million of their products so most likely I will get duplicates of items I already own from elf.

  9. I have to agree with others - I was surprised to see the price on this, since ELF is known for their affordable products. I mean, unless they're always including palettes, it seems as though most bundles would include at least 6-10+ products, and after a while it wouldn't be as interesting anymore, in my opinion. I thought it would be $10, and if it was, I would've tried it, but $20 is eh, and $27 because of shipping is way too steep for me (considering the context).

  10. I was super excited to hear about this, but that's way too expensive for an ELF bundle. Idk, I guess I'll see whats in the first bag or two and decide from there if I want to subscribe.

  11. That just seems....weird. Like do I need that many tools every 8 weeks? I mean it seems like you'd run the gamut pretty quickly and with the sales the have you can STOCK UP on elf for hella cheap (lord knows)

  12. Omg!! I'm so excited about this!!! I do agree on seeing the quality of the products first....but I'm looking forward to maybe purchasing this subscription one day..

  13. I feel like with the weekly sales, this is not worth it. I just spent $40 in their 50% off everything sale a few weeks ago. I was able to get $80 worth of products half off and I got to pick and choose what I want. I don't think you can beat that, tbh!!

  14. I have to agree with most of the other posters on this one..elf is so cheap and with their just seems WAY expensive for a "mystery" selection. I love elf, but their palettes are not what I buy when I get elf products. I like their blushes, brushes and mostly stuff that I can find at Target for like 1$ I'll be passing on this one.

  15. I signed up for this a few weeks ago and got my first box over the weekend. I have to say, I'm not very excited about it, but I don't hate it either. I got a baked eye shadow palette ($10), the st. lucia bronzer/blush duo ($3), a trio of bright summer nail polishes in beach party ($3), the studio lengthening and volumizing mascara ($3), the eyeshadow C brush and the blush brush from the studio line ($6 total), the lotion wipes ($3), the makeup removing wipes ($3), the mineral lipstick in party pink ($5), and the glossy gloss in funky fuschia ($3). That's $39 of product. But like the rest of the comments have said, I could have probably purchased all of this during the right sale for under $20. I'm excited to have the eye shadow palette and the blush/bronzer duo, but I think I'll cancel the subscription going forward.

    1. I forgot to mention the shimmering facial whip in pink lemonade. That brings it to $40.

  16. From a financial perspective you are only saving 32.5% since if you bought the same products outright shipping would be free. If you bought them on sale the free shipping would not apply since you can only use one coupon code with ELF and all their sales are applied via coupon code. Perhaps if they offered some LE items, early access to new items/colors, or partnered with some other companies to provide other products it would be worth it... as is though a 30% discount in exchange for no choice of product/color is not a deal to me especially since I own quite a bit of ELF and have found it very hit or miss in the past.
