Mmm E.L.F. has spiced up their offerings for Holiday 2011. You can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig….so I’m not sure how everyone will feel about E.L.F.’s venture into the world of creating a gold lame packaging for their Holiday Collection but props for trying to spice things up in the beauty budget world.

Well, I admit, they did a fine job with the packaging. It’s hard to do gold without looking cheesy and cheap but this does have a certain elegance to it. However, the pricing threw me as essentially the items are almost all available already in a different format or have been before for far less than these prices. For example, I don’t think I’m willing to shell out $24 for their 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette, wasn’t that $10-$15 or less before? I can add a few dollars to that $24 and get a higher quality brand’s palette that I know will have good quality shadows in the mix.
It’s tempting and they’d make nice gifts for a budding makeup junkie but not sure I need them.
