Elf Bundle Review and Unboxing July





Elf just came out with a beauty subscription that is $19.99 + $6.95 ($26.94) per shipment every 8 weeks. This sounds high considering that elf products are often $1-$5 at target but the box comes out to $13.47/mo which is in line with most beauty boxes. Caution: spoiler/unboxing below.

***Elf is offering a 20% discount see bottom










e.l.f. Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette - California $10



This eye shadow is so pretty I am a bit hesitant to use it! I saw something that looked identical at Sephora for $21! Elf is such a good price and I love that they are cruelty free. Anyways I will update when I use this. Also I like the fact that its such a neutral pallet so most of their subscribers should like this. 



e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder - St. Lucia $3 


I like this blush/bronzer duo; its a nice color. 



e.l.f. Essential 3-Piece Nail Polish Set - Beach Party $3


I like all of these colors! 


e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip Pink Lemonade $1



e.l.f. Studio Lotion Wipes - Vanilla & Coconut  $3


I have never heard of lotion wipes. The idea of them kind of bothers me because its a bit wasteful. Why not just use lotion and so you don't through away more cloth? Then I tried them and I get it. So for example you get home from work and are all sweaty and don't want to take a shower because your hair looks good and a hair cap would still let team on your straight ironed hair and mess it up? If you use a washcloth or wet wipes then it dries out your skin. 


I had this happen to me yesterday and decided to try wiping off my arms and legs but with the lotion wipe instead of a washcloth. This worked great. The cloth wiped away any sweat on my arms and my skin had barely any lotion on it but just enough. I won't use these all the time but its nice and filled a need for me.  

e.l.f. Studio Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths $3


I needed some makeup remover. Again these are great if you are super tired and want to just fall into bed and take off your makeup there. Lazy? Not when you are that tired. Love these. 




e.l.f. Studio Glossy Gloss - Pink Candy $3

e.l.f. Waterproof Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara $3


e.l.f. Mineral Mineral Lipstick - Party Pink $5



e.l.f. Studio Eyeshadow "C" Brush $3





***Elf is offering a 20% discount for your first purchase when we referrer friends. I am not sure if this works for the bundle or just regular purchases but either way let me know you want this and give me your email and I will send it from their site.

Total Value: $40+ 6.95 shipping. However, I found a coupon code a few weeks back for 50% off site wide so the value is only $27 to me. Basically the stuff can be found at the same price if you wait around. However, that being said I will hold off my final verdict until I have tried more of the products. The idea of a curated box has some value too so I may still keep getting this bundle actually if I like the products.
