A little e.l.f. told me...


…that Nordstrom is NOT changing the logo on their makeup packaging, and not responsible for clearing out all inventory of "their" (not their) e.l.f. cosmetics line for $1. That's the rumor that started (re)circulating this week. BUT -- everything is available online at e.l.f. for a buck (apparently always a dollar online, per my commentor Marie. Thanks for that, Marie!) and I will say this...I own e.l.f. tweezers (I paid more than a buck. $3 or $4?) and they are very good (I'm a little brow obsessed). So I'm not feeling bad about buying 5 pairs today (yup; obsessed :-) and some face blotters. And when I entered “CAROLINA” in the area marked for coupon code I had $7.50 knocked off my bill. That part is for real.

So, regardless of where you choose to buy your facial supplies, the timing may be right to treat yourself to a tube of glossy lip stuff. A while back I learned about the “lipstick index” – a cold economy warms lipstick sales. Why? Big-ticket purchases get shelved, but women turn to a colorful tube of lipstick as an affordable luxury that will enable her to feel like all’s well with the world. I guess if we’re going down the crapper we may as well look good for the trip, right?

Ouch, the Nordstrom website says it's a hoax. You might want to check that out!

I *think* this is incorrect. E.L.F is ALWAYS $1 on their website, if I remember correctly. I am shocked to hear that Nordstrom would carry it.

I "sleuthed" this during my break -- I know e.l.f., and I likie but it ain't no Nordstrom. Was also suspect when nothing on e.l.f. site had any mention. SO -- looks like Nordstrom part is a hoax...but I have e.l.f. tweezers (that I paid more than $1 for) and they are so much better than my pricier ones. So a few pairs (yup; I'm brow obsessed) at a buck a pop I'm OK with.

THAT said...I don't want to lead people wrong. So I'm updating the post.

Thanks, ladies!!

This sounds fun, but I've never tried elf...are they any good. What do you compare them with? I just hate not being able to touch my cosmetics before I buy.:) Let me know how you like your stuff.

My favorite super-cheap make up is Jordana's "terra cotta" lipstick. If I could have only one piece of make up, it'd be that shade of lipstick.
