e.l.f. Cosmetics: 75% off Mineral Line + $12 Rebate!


I'm sure most of you have heard of e.l.f. cosmetics by now. If not, though, they sell very inexpensive cosmetics products--with most of their items priced around $1-$3! The best part-- they often have promotional codes that you can use on top of their bargain prices!

Currently, for Cyber Monday (one day ONLY), you can score 70% off all e.l.f. Mineral products by using coupon code CM70MIN at checkout. On top of that, you can also score a FREE subscription to Vogue magazine ($12 value) if you spend $25 or more! If you don't want the magazine, you can instead choose a $12 rebate.

Deal Scenario:
  • Go here and clicked on the Mineral tab category
  • Order 25 $3 Mineral products
  • My total before the promo code was $75
  • I entered the promo code( CM70MIN ) and it deducted $49.99
  • Bringing my final cost down to $25.01 + $6.95 shipping=$31.96
  • Below the coupon code box is a "Special Customer Benefit" section which offers the free subscription to Vogue. If you instead want the $12 rebate, then check the box that you do NOT want the magazine and click on "Get details about rebate instructions". This just explains that you will need to send a copy of your order confirmation within 30 days of placing your order to ValueMags-ELF Program, 40 East Chicago Ave., # 429, Chicago, IL 60611 and you will receive a rebate of $12!

Your final cost for all 25 cosmetics mineral items (valued at $75) will ONLY end up being $19.69! That equals out to just $0.79 per item!!!! These would make great stocking stuffers items and would also be great additions to gift baskets!

I did the ELF deal last time and never got the rebate back. Anyone else ever have that problem. Plus it took 3 times to get my order right But the mineral makeup does look nice for the price!

This is the first time placing an order from E.L.F, hopefully all goes well. Plus you get free gift wrap with your order and if you refer 3 friends they send you a free gift. Let's see how it works out.

Thanks!

I was just thinking the same thing...I never received my rebate from my last order although my daughter loved the make-up. How long does it normally take for the rebate?

Betsy said...

I never received my ELF rebate either, even though I sent everything in as instructed. Compared to that, I just sent in about a month ago my SC Johnson Rebate and already got the check in the mail. Hmm.

I also did the last E.L.F. deal and never got my rebate. I wonder if there is anyone to contact? I was happy with the makeup as well but part of the reason I did the deal was for the price after rebate . . . bummer.

I did the ELF deal last time too and never recieved a rebate. i contacted ELF and they sent me a response that really nothing to do with my question. I doubt we'll see that money . . .

just wanted to chime in and say i never got my rebate from them either. it's been at least 2 months since i received my stuff. no word from them.. wondering why not.

just a thought! we should be thankful for this web site and for this makeup deal. if I was ya'll I wouldn't complain about the rebate. you are getting a smoking GOOD deal on all your makeup!

Jenna said...

I am very thankful for this website and all the work she does for us. However, I am wondering where my rebate from my previous order is just like everyone else. Since Collin has nothing to do with the rebates, I don't think it's wrong to comment that we're wondering where the rebate is. No one is being rude about it, just asking if anyone else has gottent their rebate yet.

Thanks for all the hard work today Collin!

Can someone tell me how the quality of the makeup is? is pretty good? Im not expecting it to be like MAC or anything but before I spend 20 bucks on it, is it pretty good

Ella said...

My local Target sells e.l.f. makeup and when I was there the other day, everything was clearanced to 50% off! Eyeliner pencils with a sharpener were .50. Lip gloss trios were $1.50 (plumping lip gloss, those lip sticks where you twist the color up onto the brush, candy flavored gloss tins) as were the 3 packs of nail polish which in my store were french manicure sets. For $2.50 they had 5 packs of the twist up lip sticks as well as full manicure sets with polish, toe separaters and clippers, file, etc.

Not sure if all Targets carry this but this way you can get the stuff for even cheaper by not having to pay shipping!

i got the elf mineral shadows and blush before and these are loose powders but super pigmented..in my opinion its worth the money

Kristin said...

I just placed an order and found this phone number for elf :

800-231-4732

I would HIGHLY recommend that everyone who didn't get their rebate call and give them an earful because that's a terrible way to conduct business!

I did the ELF deal last time also and never got my rebate either.

i just placed an order for the cosmetics yesterday. i ordered 25$ worth of products and printed out my rebate form....not sure when or if it will come through...but i purpposely ordered extra items to get to the $25 mark in order to qualify for the rebate. wish i had read this post prior to placing that order. on a side note, all their "create your own compacts" and cosmetic cases were 75% off with a code i found on retailmenot.com.
one problem with elf is that you cannot combine coupon codes...so no free shipping if you get the 75% off deal, and vice versa.
their quality is decent. i LOVE their all-over cover stick, but i use it for dark circles and as a shadow primer. and i also LOVE thier all-over color stick, which i use as a blusher and lip gloss.
their mineral eyeshadows are also excellent. i wasnt too happy with their mineral foundation, booster, or glow.
hope this helps!

I too am having a problem checking out. I have tried multiple times and have spent about 2 hours picking out items. I am getting the same error message. So sad! I was so excited about all the awesome deals!!

Abby C said...

I had trouble too, and they extended the sale one more day due to the problems they were having with the website. Yay!!!!

Anna Bellin said...

I just thought I would say that I finally tracked down the rebate folks for the ELF deal -- Value mags it is called. I contacted them about my rebate and they said they recieved it and will honor it and that the delay was due to an abnormally large number of requests. So - sounds like they are still on the way!

Jakie said...

I have been back and forth with Value Mags about this for weeks. First they said they got an overwhelming response and said to contact them again in four weeks. I did just that and this is the response I got:

Your rebate request was entered into our system earlier today as rejected because your order total didn't meet the minimum total.

Thanks for your patience,
