Do the E.L.F. Coupons Really Suck Lately?

ELF

I placed an order for some of the new E.L.F. goodies that recently launched like the Jumbo Eye and Lip Pencils but dude, what’s with the lack of coupons?

I used to get all sorts of cool 50% off your total order coupons but now all the coupons are 10 to 15% for new customers only.

I miss those killer deals E.L.F.!

Anyone notice the lack of coupons lately?
