E.L.F. Cosmetics 24K Holiday 2011 Collection

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.

Take a look, you tell me what you think!

E.L.F. 24K 32 Piece Eyeshadow Palette $14

E.L.F. 24K 47 Piece Makeup Clutch $18
Includes:

  • 32 Eyeshadows
  • 6 Lip Colors
  • 2 Blushes
  • 1 Bronzer
  • 1 Eyebrow Powder
  • 1 Eyebrow Cream
  • 1 Face Shimmer
  • 3 Dual Ended Eyeshadow Applicators

 

E.L.F. 24K 100 Piece Eyeshadow Palette $24

E.L.F. 24K Eyelash Essentials Collection $14
Includes:

  • Mascara
  • Signature Golden Mini Curler
  • Signature Golden Large Curler

E.L.F. 24K 6 Piece Shimmer Eyeliner Collection $10
Includes:

  • Black Shimmer
  • Gunmetal Shimmer
  • White Shimmer
  • Bronze Shimmer
  • Purple Shimmer
  • Teal Shimmer

E.L.F. 24K 4 Piece Glitter Gloss Collection $14

E.L.F. 24K 15 Piece Eyeshadow Collection $14
Includes:

  • 15 Eyeshadow Shades
  • 2 Dual-ended Applicators
  • Built-in Mirror

 

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.

Thoughts?

    Hmm…some of the prices are a little confusing. Like why does it cost the same ($14) for a 15 pan eyeshadow palette as for the 32? And for $4 more, I can have that whole huge set with glosses, blushes, etc.
    Either way, I have to say I was super impressed with the last 32 pan palette I got from them. It was cheaper than these ones and the colors are very pigmented and blendable. I know all too well how hit or miss their quality is, so I was pleasantly surprised!

    I really am liking the design on that first palette (the “clutch”). Even if they’d released that one before, if you didn’t have it already, that packaging might be worth a couple of bucks.

    I have never tried ELF, my local Target doesn’t seem to get anything of theirs in now (though they recently added back in a 4-foot general display in the regular aisle). However, I am very attracted to the words “glitter gloss” and may hunt those down if I can catch a favorable review of them somewhere.

    Whoa…the packaging is nice but the pricing is NOT ok! I’m all for E.L.F. if i can get stuff for $1-$3, but for that kind of money I could practically go to Sephora! haha

    Just wondering your thoughts on the quality of ELF products? How’s the color payoff? Was wondering if you could ever do a post on good budget makeup lines/best values? Thanks for the info on storage, that was very helpful. :)

    “You can put lipstick on a pig but it’s still a pig” – except when it’s Miss Piggy, she is so fantastic!

    with make-up and a lot of other things, you get what you pay for. I’ve tried a couple of their products because of the budget friendly price, but the quality isn’t there in the items that I’ve tried.
