ELF Haul

Waiting for my ELF package to come was definitely theeeee longest I've ever waited for a package to process and ship. Their website says that their processing time can take anywhere from 7-14 business days and mine took 14. They sent me an email the day before they shipped it apologizing for the delay so I thought they were going to take even longer, but they did manage to ship it out the next day. My order is also MISSING 2 things!! They aren't backordered and I've been charged for everything I ordered so I guess they just missed it. I did email them about it though and they said they'd refund whatever is missing... I haven't gotten it yet and it's been like... 2 weeks now? I do want to make another order from ELF though, but I want to clear this one up first. I really want to try their eye shadow brushes. Have any of you tried them before?



This is what I got:
Eyelash Curler
Dramatic Lash Kit
Luminance Bronzer
Shy Blush
Glow Blush
Brow Gel
Tweezers
Brow Brush
Natural Lash Kit (missing)
Natural Lip Liner (missing)

That's the only reason why I don't want to order from ELF. I heard the shipment takes forever and people have had bad experiences with the customer service. If this wasn't the case, I might order some you know.

Their eye shadow brushes are good except the Blending Brush, that one is awful. Also I have a review of all my elf brushes here http://shimmerkisser.blogspot.com/2008/05/review-elf-face-brushes.html

Hi Lily! I tried the ELF brushes (all of them) and they were all a bit stiff and hard to work with in my opinion, like the bristles were kinda scratchy. I hate ELF(no offense), but their products totally fit the "you get what you paid for" scheme.

ohhh you guys have really cheap ELF products and you don't have to buy it personally!!! ours available at the mall for approx $2.00 each! so i would rather spend it to other drugstore brand :) I've used a couple of their products, they're ok, but I want to see your review on them :)

I have never bought anything from ELF before, since they don't sell them at my local drugstores. I might want to try the brow gel, I'm not sure yet. Tell me how well it works when you try it out =]

I agree it took for ELF to send their items out. Sorry about the missing items. But I really like that curler! I had an affair with it for awhile and really felt guilty towards my HG curler.

elf has the worst shipping I have ever encountered. It took a month, yes a MONTH for me to receive my entire order. I requested that my shipping be refunded. It sucks that their shipping is so high when the products are so cheap. I've only ordered the empty eye shadow pans.

ELF missed one thing from my package tooo when i order. and i emailed them and they sent me the item they missed....but then they end up sending me the wrong thing again. i didn't bother complaining again.

I've tried nearly all of the ELF brushes, and I like using the flat eyeliner brush for cream/gel liners (some have complained that the brushes are too rough) and even using their concealer brush as an eyeliner brush, because it's so small. Definitely stay away from the blending brush - the hairs are rough & coarse, I don't see how anyone could use it to blend shadows.
