Anyone ever purchased $1 makeup from teh internets?

I came across ELF cosmetics, and it looks all pretty and non-sketchy and all their makeup is $1. That could be a major savings over Sephora, but all the reviews I've found have been hugely varied. Some people say it's pretty high quality and reliable, other say it's a scam and they don't ship your stuff. Anyone had any experience? The lipgloss tempts.

The other problem here seems to be that shipping is $7, so in order to make it worthwhile, I'd have to buy about $30 worth of cosmetics which, even if I used tons of it all the time to begin with, would be hard given that everything is $1. The paradoxes of internet cheapness...

ELF is really stellar, especially their eyshadows. Have you looked around local drugstores to see if they stock it? They have it at the one near me (but then, I'm out east).

You don't have to spend $7 to ship Alberto Vo5. dave.s.

Helen: Oh, good! Have you ever ordered from their site?

I have, a while ago, when they had massive sales. Some of the products are ok, some are really disappointing (i.e tiny, poor quality).

Tip from a co-worker for buying ELF online:

When you check out there is a space for a coupon code. Use CAROLINA and save an additional $7.50 if your order is over $15.00.
