e.l.f. Cosmetics: 75% off + $10 Rebate + FREE Shipping + More!



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 being priced at just $1! However, most of their new Studio Line products are priced at $3 each... still not bad! The best part is they often have promotional codes that you can use on top of their bargain prices!

I have yet to try e.l.f. cosmetics, but with this new promotion (I'll tell you about below) I'm definitely going to purchase a few items! If you have tried their products previously, I'd love to hear what you like and don't like about them.

Dana emailed about this HOT new promotion available:

Right now you can use this code: WWYB75S to get 75% off the e.l.f. cosmetics Studio Line + FREE shipping on orders of $20 or more! On top of that, you'll also get a FREE subscription to Marie Claire or can instead choose to get a $9.99 rebate!

Here is what I did:
  • I went here and clicked on the Studio tab category
  • I ordered 27 $3 Studio Line products
  • My total before the promo code was $81
  • I entered the promo code( WWYB75S ) and it deducted $60.75
  • Bringing my final cost down to $20.25 with FREE shipping!
  • Below the coupon code box is a "Special Customer Benefit" section which offers the free subscription to Marie Clare. If you instead want the $9.99 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 $9.99!

My final cost for all 27 cosmetics items (valued at $81) will ONLY end up being $10.26! That equals out to just .38 per item! Wow, is all I can say! I can't wait to get my cosmetics and try out this brand!!!

(Thanks, Dana!)

If you use ebates, you can also get 4.0% back!

Amanda said...

5% back with cashbaq.com, or 7.2% back with bigcrumbs.com!

Sorry, I should have checked these all with my first post.

Hip2Save said...

The reason I didn't post going through a cash back site is because I'm pretty sure you won't get cash back. In the fine print of almost all cash back sites, it states that if you use a coupon code that is NOT provided by the cash back site, then your purchase will not qualify for cash back.

Amanda said...

I had no idea about that coupon policy. It certainly makes sense though.

I hope you like your new makeup stuff Hip2Save! Thanks again, for posting all these great deals for us.

LOVE E.L.F. !!!! I have gotten TONS of freebies with them (with only between $5-$15 purchases) - flip flops, mini makeup set, free shipping, etc. Just great!

Anonymous said...

I am excited. Never used these products before, but even without a discount they seem to have a great price. but wow. all that for only $10! I have decided that for Christmas I am going to be making everyone gift baskets. This way I won't break the bank, and everyone will gets lots of goodies. I am sure most will have pictureka games, and some of these little make-ups! lol Thanks for all you do!

Sharyn said...

Mine is not showing free shipping in the checkout. Do you have to do something else to get it? My total is over $20.00. Thanks!

Sharyn said...

Answered my own question....subtotal has to be over 75...Thanks!!!

rbabe1 said...

Their brushes are great! The $30 set for $7.50 is a great deal. I got a few for gifts.

Also, after you confirm your order it asks you to recommend three friends e-mails and you'll get a free gift included in your shipment. Put in DH or one of your extra spam e-mails for the gift!

I love the e.l.f. products. I have purchased the makeup brushes
lg kit and travel size kit. got several free lip glosses and other various different make-up products. All very nice, no complaints here.

About 6 mos ago, 2 of my girlfriends ordered from this same e.l.f site. AT that time, they too had huge discounts and deals. However, my friends never did receive their items even tho they were paid for via internet. Their issues are still not resolved and no money was ever refunded to them (yet). I just wanted to pass this along. Maybe some of you have purchased before and had better luck...?

Alina said...

I've ordered e.l.f. several times before and really like their makeup (especially for the price). They have a mineral line too which I ordered for my bday in March and have loved loved loved it. I hope you like yours as well.

Laurie said...

They used to sell ELF stuff at my Target - love everything I've bought by them, especially the cream blush and all their lip glosses!! The only thing I haven't liked is one of their lip glosses had a little "turney" thing to pump the gloss onto a little applicator and it broke on all the ones I bought, so the packaging may be a little cheaper but it's great stuff for the money.

Jannel said...

I did the same deal scenerio, but I got charged $5.18 for tax. Is it because I live in NJ? Did anyone else get charged tax?

Irish twin said...

I never tried this makeup line and hope I get my product. For that price you can't go wrong. I ordered brushes too.

Sarah&Dave said...

i got all the way to the last step and the web site crashed!!

jordanandlace said...

The site must be overloaded! I hope I don't miss out on this deal!!

stephanie said...

I think there are alot of people on the site. It's taking a long time to load

Nicole said...

I love their products and have ordered a few times. The only thing I haven't liked is the eye liner that I got.. but that's personal preference. Read the reviews though if you are ever "iffy" about the product. I got the mini makeup collection with my last order and love it! I've ordered their brushes too and they are great!

The Esparza Family said...

E.L.F. always have great prices and promotions so I ordered a bunch of stuff from them last year & HATED everything I got! It's definitely cheap product. If you're ok with that, then go for it, but if you enjoy nice makeup, don't waste your money! I ended up selling the stuff I got at a garage sale.

Anonymous said...

I never heard of Elf. I'm a MAC kinda chick. LOVE my MAC makeup. Since this makeup is "cheap" then I wont even bother. I'm in need of brushes so I will buying a few of those. Thanks!

JENNA said...

I got my order in! After rebate I'm spending $15.50 on over $100 of makeup, score!!!

Beth said...

Has anyone ever used any kind of concealer in this product? That's what I really need and am totally willing to orders lots of other stuff if it gets me concealer. I am looking for a very think, barely notice you have make up on, type of feel. I currently use Clinique "Almost MakeUp" but am trying to find something cheaper. Any input would help!

It looks like you have to sign up for their Shoppers Discounts and Rewards - in which you have to supply a credit card number. Not cool. STILL - $80 worth of product for $20 is an awfully good deal :)

Anonymous said...

i am charged for the shipping. How to avoid it.

Anonymous said...

is there a special code for free shipping?

Tara said...

I can't get free shipping either!!

Kristin said...

I can't get free shipping either!

Betsy said...

At first my cart deducted the shipping, but now it's not. Looks like they took the free shipping away :(

Betsy said...

Hmm the free shipping is back, but now it's not accepting my CC info for some reason...

Betsy said...

Finally got it, think the site is just running slow. I got $81 of make up for $12.51! (after the rebate) Awesome!! Thank you so much!!

Anonymous said...

I can't get the free shipping? It was there earlier in the day, but I had to wait to order, now the shipping is charged.

Deal Finding Chik said...

Charging me for shipping too. =(

Anonymous said...

If you don't apply the code at the beginning and wait until the very end to do it, it will leave the shipping off.

Alisa said...

I have ordered from them before and have been pretty happy. It took FOREVER (like 3 months) to come in, but for the price you cannot beat it. Plus, all those freebies the other reader was talking about is that they send you emails everyday about a new deal. It is fun to see what new things they are offering for free!

Verna said...

Hi! This is my first time ever leaving a comment but here goes. If you make a purchase of the $1.00 items and it reaches $25.00 just enter the name carolina and you will get 50% off. So then they will be 50 cents each. I placed an order before I found this on snopes. I was looking there to see if there is some kind of scam with ELF. So everyone better buy up GREAT stocking stuffers for your teen daughters. Thanks for all the hard work you coupon Moms do. I have 10 adopted children and you have taught me how to save a couple bucks. Have fun shopping!!!

Tara said...

Mine also kept adding the shipping. I waited and added it at the end. It's still there.

Maria said...

I tried out this makeup through a promotion and didn't get one of the gift cards I was supposed to. I emailed ELF and they resolved the issue quickly. They send out a lot of spam mail that always seems a little shady to me. Good products though.

Angela said...

I can't get the free shipping, my subtotal was 81 and it said my shipping was free then I entered in my code and it took off $60 but it added the $7 for shipping back on there. How do I get free shipping.

Anonymous said...

Must be over now, becuase I tried it this morning and it didn't work. Bummed I missed out!!!

Jenn said...

Free Shipping!

Re enter the code in STEP 3 of the checkout and it will give you the discount and the free shipping.

Make sure your sub total is $75+ before discount and if you're doing the rebate, that your final total is $20+.

Hope that helps :)

Anna said...

LOVE their brushes and also the oil blotting papers! I carry a pack in my purse at all times. I used to use Clean and Clear blotting sheets, but the e.l.f. brand works just as well for a whole lot less.

Anonymous said...

I waited to add the discount code until STEP 2 and got the free shipping and the 75% off. Thanks for the hing to wait until the end to get the free shipping.

Julie said...

great make-up! I order from them often and once you place your first order,you get emails often with different deals and coupon codes!

Anonymous said...

No free shipping for me either. I waited until Step 3. Oh well.

itscindisworld said...

I did this deal, and came here to read comments to see why it wasnt doing the free shipping and if anyone else had the same problem, and I saw the comment saying to wait til the 3rd step to enter promo code, I did that, and your order is complete at that point, so my order went through at full price....luckily I was able to call the company and they are going to adjust the order with the 75% off.

leah said...

yay! i looove their studio line i recently got an order from them and i ordered studio and the mineral line and i love everything i have! check on youtube for great reviews!

Anonymous said...

So do you have to actually spend $75 to get the free shipping? Mine still shows a shipping cost when I do what you suggested. Thanks

Kermitonly said...

Just ordered their 10 piece brush set and a case. The reviews for the brushes were all very good. I'm excited to get them at such a great deal!

trash2cash4u said...

I can't get the free shipping, either. Help!!! With my first attempt, I had $80 of Studio product prior to entering the coupon code and the shipping was automatically taken off.When I entered the code, the 6.95 shipping was added back in. After reading the comments, I removed the coupon code and added it in step 2 ( I did not want to add in step 3 after clicking Place Order as I am pretty sure I would be charged full price at that point). Finally, I added an extra product to have my pre-discount total over $80 and after discount over $20 and tried both ways and it still didn't work. Any ideas?

if you start getting a random magazine in the mail it is from this company. somehow they sign you up for a magazine subscription and it automatically comes off your credit card. it happened to my friend. it took her forever to figure out how she was getting a magazine that she didn't subscribe to.

Anonymous said...

I was wondering how you got the free shipping because I did exactly what you did and got my total to $81 and then it took the 75% off but it was still charging me the $6.95 for shipping. Shouldn't it have taken it off?

Enzo said...

I couldn't get free shipping either, after ordering the exact amount of $81 and 27 units from Studio. Gave it up because shipping would be 30% of order ($6.95), which brought the unit price to over $1. So I passed.

trash2cash4u said...

I guess I will have to pass, too b/c I don't want to pay that much for shipping. I don't have to have the products, but like e.l.f. and thought I'd try some new things.
Anon, do you know what magazine that your friend received? I started receiving a "W" magazine that is a large oversized fashion/artsy mag and it had some pornographic photos in it and I have been trying to trace where it came from. Haven't seen any charges to my card, but wondering if it could have been from e.l.f.??

Anonymous said...

I'm ordering now. I put in the 75% off code and it's only taking $10 off and it's putting the shipping charge on. Help!

Anonymous said...

I also tried ordering product and entered the code and it is only taking $10.00 off. It says 75% off Studio line, but it is only giving $10.00. I double checked to make sure that I only order Studio line. Please help!

Anonymous said...

I just contacted e.l.f who advised that this coupon was not meant to be shared and "I apologize however the maximum discount is $10."

Bummer...

Feed the Moose said...

same problem here. wish i'd read all the comments before shopping. oh well...

Anonymous said...

I received my e.l.f. order today.I am pleased with the quality of the products and thrilled that I paid only $11.00 for it all.

I was so excited when I saw the large box and discovered all my goodies inside. It was like Christmas for ME!!!

FYI - scammers. After they charge my cc I never got anything. Checked my account and the order wasn't there. So contacted them and said my order was lost in transit, but then they were able to produce my complete order sheet in 1 second. So basically they were hoping I didn't recognize I didn't get anything. Sounds like they didn't want to fill my order. They said they will credit my cc - but we will see. Never again.

i never received my rebate from this deal. i already got a ton of free mags in the mail so i'm not sure if i started to received a new subscription or not.. really sucks because i would't have ordered this if i wasn't going to get the $10 rebate

Kristin said...

Anon - I was coming here to say the same thing. I did this deal back in August and haven't gotten the rebate back either. Pretty disapointing....

Beth said...

I too, did not get my $1o rebate. Does anyone know where to contact about this?

Anonymous said...

If you are having problems getting your rebate you should call them. I found their number searching teldir.com. The reason they didn't send my rebate is because they thought I didn't spend enough for it. They were not counting that I used a shipping code to make my shipping $1.98. My total order was $21.98 and they were counting $6.99 of that as shipping so I would not qualify. If you call them they can fix it if this is your problem.
