Do Not Want Subliminal E-mails from E.L.F. Cosmetics

dO nOT WANT E mail

Dear E.L.F.,

Do not want your silly subliminal messages e-mails. They piss me off.

k, thanks!

Seriously, they make me pissy when I get an e-mail with sale info that says “Do Not Share Me”. You’re trying to hard to be cute. Either that or you think we’re all stupid enough to NOT share your topic secret coupon code which 100,000 other people already know about. Oooo harvesting the power of subliminal messages in a not so subtle way. Bright!

Do not want dude, do not want.

Also please, stop sending “We Miss You” E-mails seconds after I load your website…..cookies is bad. I eats them for breakfast with milk! Imma block your cookies soon!

    I just got that same email and thought the same exact thing. Yeah, I’m not really gonna rush to blab to all of my friends that you’re shipping stuff for $2. It’s not that great.

    And I too get more than irritated that every time I hop onto e.l.f. to grab a link for a blog post, I get a stinking email.

    I’m totally with you!

    They are actually using reverse psychology; not subliminal messaging. They aren’t being subtle at all lol

    OMG hahah I agree. I’ve started deleting these emails every time I see them now, partly because the title makes me cringe and partly because the deals have all been BOGO 1/2 off lately, and that’s not enough to tempt me lol.

  • 6/8/11 22:31 Ty:

    I also unsubscribed. The think I hate the most is if they are say bogo half off they send me an email everyday day until the sale goes off!

      omg yes Court I hate those too!

  • 6/9/11 0:18 kali:

    OMG! Totally agree. BUT.. I do like when it’s from a brand I LIKE and they’re offering me a really awesome code.

    I hate ELF though.. Sure their prices are low but their customer service sucks. And for “so so” products, I won’t make the effort to come back.

    • 6/9/11 9:42 the Muse:

      hey kali…really? I haven’t had a prob with orders so never dealt with the CS. Products are total hit or miss imho :-/

    I used to LOL whenever I saw those cute e.l.f. e-mails about how you can spend quadrillion dollars buying Dior versus only $12 buying the “same” things from e.l.f.! I like some of e.l.f.’s stuff and love their Studio line brushes, but seriously, those e-mails… Totally with you on that. Also, they always send me the same e-mail twice. Happily GMail chains it all into one message, but geh.
