I pulled the ELF plug

Sorry for those who read my latest post r/g $1.00 make up. You know the old saying... if it appears too good to be true, it probably is! I did NOT do my homework but I DID place an order with them so we'll see how this all pans out. There are several of articles online saying it's a bunch of BS and I certainly don't (and refuse to) endorse BS. So the long story short is I will either a. be looking beyond fabulous in a few weeks with all my new make up or b. I'll be $30 dollars in the hole. Stay tuned... xo, Brie

PS thank you Five Tomatoes for the heads up!

I'll cross my fingers that it's awesome for you - I checked it out before I ordered because I am broke as a joke and I was trying to talk myself out of it! Maybe you'll get really lucky and it'll be awesome makeup and then we'll all have more money for shoes!

Hmm I didn't see the original post but my sister and I both order from ELF and love it!

that's good to know! I had given them a plug regarding their 1.00 which an email I received claimed they were purchased by Nordstrom and were in the process of a rebrand. Nordstroms has this posted on their site:

ELF cosmetics really do cost $1 for everything in the line, but it has nothing to do with Nordstrom. That's just their regular price. And there is even a discount from that price right now. Check out snopes.com:

I'm right there with you sister...I too will either be looking fab in my new makeup or I'll also be $30 in the hole. I guess the other option is that we will get the makeup and it will cause a horrible rash or something.

Oh well! Like I said before, it's just makeup. I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. It's not like you were wheeling and dealing nuclear energy. However, if you come across a great sale on that will you pass it my way. I'm always looking for a deal on nuclear energy and it's hard to come by!
