E.L.F.: 75% Savings On Eyes Lips Face Makeup

by Tara Kuczykowski on August 17, 2009 · 39 comments

E.L.F. has a fantastic deal going on right now – you can take 75% off any purchase of their Studio Line products priced at just $3 each. Plus, orders over $75 are eligible for free shipping!

The $75 free shipping minimum is calculated pre-discount, so here's how you can get $78 worth of makeup for just $6.51 (plus tax):

  • Visit the Eyes Lips Face website and add 26 items from the Studio Line to your cart (or any combination of items from the Studio Line that makes your total above $75).
  • Enter promo code WWYB75S at checkout to deduct $58.50 from your total.
  • Check the box under "special customer benefit" to indicate that you do not wish to receive a subscription to Marie Claire magazine.
  • Pay just $16.50 at checkout with FREE shipping.

This will bring your final total to just $6.51 (plus tax) out of pocket!!! What a bargain on an already inexpensive but high quality makeup line!

Thanks, Pocket Your Dollars!

Is anyone else having problems getting the items to "stick" in their shopping cart?


2 Kate August 17, 2009 at 1:03 am's not giving me free shipping after I enter the promo code.
I'm sad. :(

Subtotal $78.00

Promo - 75% Off Studio items! - $58.50

Shipping $6.95

Total $26.45

Well, bummer – I wonder if they changed it?

Sandi, I had that problem too, but they were all there when I clicked on the shopping cart.


4 Danielle McGuire August 17, 2009 at 1:31 am

Yes mine will not add to cart either and when I click on the cart it is empty even though there is 1 item in cart. I want some of this because there is some awesome stuff here but frustrated that they wont stick in cart.


5 Sarah August 17, 2009 at 1:45 am

They are not letting me do the free shipping with the discount. There is free shipping until I add the 75% off coupon :( my order total is ~25 after the 75%.


6 Mom to 3 August 17, 2009 at 2:22 am

Yes, exact same scenario as Kate's... $26.45 out of pocket!! This rebate seems a little tricky also. I wonder if it will truly be a rebate check for $10, or $10 off a future order? This was not what I thought I was spending my money on; and I really shouldn't have spent $26.45 on so many items that are not "needed". ;( Wish I would've just gone to bed and saved the money!

So, I saw the problem! The deal was from a few days ago and was originally done with $20 free shipping, and it looks like people got that to work with tax.


8 Kristin O'Rear August 17, 2009 at 5:37 am

the problem with the free shipping not working with the 75% off promo code may be because e.l.f. only allows you to use one promo per order and they probably consider the free shipping another promotional offer


9 Amanda August 17, 2009 at 6:53 am

The free s/h isn't working anymore. However, you can also get 4% back with an Ebates account. The $10 rebate is off your next order, not cash back.


10 Amanda August 17, 2009 at 6:54 am

Wait, I might be wrong about the rebate. Looks like if you mail in the form you might get cash instead.


11 Jaclyn August 17, 2009 at 8:01 am

I saw this a few days ago on Hip 2 Save. She said to put in $81.00 worth of product before entering the code. Maybe that will help with the free shipping?


12 Betsy Madison August 17, 2009 at 9:47 am

Mine did not take off the shipping either. I have emailed them. The $10 coupon is not the same as the rebate. Back where you click that you DO NOT want the magazine subscription, click on the rebate DETAILS. This takes you to directions for the rebate. I could not get the page to print directly from that spot, so I copied and pasted it into a word doc and printed. Even without free shipping, if the $9.99 rebate comes through, it will be $16.46 for 26 fun items. That's not bad!!


13 Jennifer August 17, 2009 at 10:31 am

I put in the promo code but it only took off $10. Anyone have the same problem??

Subtotal $45.00

Promo – 75% Off Studio items! – $10.00 (remove)

Shipping $6.95

Total $41.95


14 Ashley S August 17, 2009 at 10:35 am

The most it will take off for me is $10. When I enter the coupon, it no longer gives me the free shipping & it says 75% off studio; however, it won't take off any more than $10 no matter how much I get.


15 Danica August 17, 2009 at 10:48 am

When I go to "checkout" it shows there are no items in my cart. How do I fix this?


16 (Via)Maria August 17, 2009 at 11:19 am

I'm only getting $10 removed as well and shipping reinstated. Ugh!


17 Deanna August 17, 2009 at 11:34 am

Not sure how- I remember getting an email that had my friend's name on it from ELF a couple weeks ago - I am getting *so* much spam from ELF. And I have never ordered from them. And to my personal and private email address, not my junk mail email address.
Be Aware of this!


18 Angie August 17, 2009 at 11:39 am

I'm having the $10 issue too! :( Is the offer no longer good?


19 Angie August 17, 2009 at 11:42 am

They changed the offer. I chatted with someone on the site...
[Angie] Hello, I am using promo code WWYB75S which takes 75% off of studio items, I have $78 worth of studio items in my cart and I'm only getting $10 off of my order??
[Esther] We apologize for any confusion regarding this coupon code. This was a limited coupon code which was offered to a limited amount of our customers and not meant to be shared. Please feel free to use the coupon code, but we have now limited the discount to a maximum of $10.


20 (Via)Maria August 17, 2009 at 11:49 am

Thank you, Angie! I was debating whether to contact them. I had a feeling this is what happened. They really need to reword it or just state code is invalid and give new code.

I have never ordered from E.L.F. since I know others that had problems with items being in stock and E.L.F. not letting them know until they filled the rest of the order which messed up the promos. I was willing to take a chance on this deal especially when I saw the Studio Brush line.

Thanks Tara for trying to share the deal with us.


21 Emily Lauren August 17, 2009 at 12:28 pm

Hmm... I couldn't get 75% at all, just saw a $10 rebate.
Too bad.


22 Jana M August 17, 2009 at 12:35 pm

I get the free shipping, then when I add the code, it said "75% off Studio Line-$10 off!"
HUH? Subtotal $71.95.


23 vanessa August 17, 2009 at 12:50 pm

i asked elf and they imposed a $10 maximum on the coupon...
I dont think its fair to impose that after others got a larger discount but what can we do.
Also no free shipping so at this point not worth it anymore


24 Teia August 17, 2009 at 1:17 pm

I just wanted to say that I bought some on thier make up a few years back and I did not like it at all.


25 michelle evans August 17, 2009 at 1:49 pm

Wish it would have worked!


26 Tracie Merritt August 17, 2009 at 3:18 pm

I tried ordering from ELF they said it was only for certain people and they were not suppose to give out that savings code.Anyone using it will only recieve $10.00 off. Bummer.I tend to purchase from people who give you great deals to try.


27 Tiffany Color August 17, 2009 at 6:51 pm

The code is only taking $10 off off after I add the code. & no free shipping & handling. I'll check back later to see if anyone has figured it out.


28 Shelby August 18, 2009 at 12:14 pm

Only getting $10 off too & no free shipping.
Thx Angie for the info.


29 Nightingale August 18, 2009 at 12:38 pm

Yes, not working. 10$ off and no free shipping. Thanks for the info. I talked with live chat to customer service & it says, it is for some customers and they r not supposed to share it cms..


30 emily August 18, 2009 at 10:15 pm

hi - just wanted to pass on that this is a FANTASTIC site right now! almost all the regular nail polish and makeup is $1.00!
Coupon code: carolina will get you 50% off any order up to $15.

and for the person that got spam mail - that was because when you order with elf, they will give you a free gift for giving them three email addresses of friends/family. so blame your friends!


31 fletchen August 19, 2009 at 6:36 am

Pocket Your Dollars posted yesterday that the deal has changed. Now the coupon code just takes $10 off.


32 Joy August 19, 2009 at 10:54 pm

I ordered from them once in the past and NEVER AGAIN! Their customer service is a joke. I tried to cancel an order minutes after placing it because I forwarded my "great deal" onto a friend who sent me links to hundreds of blogs and chats about how crappy the e.l.f. company is. The customer service person said that the order was cancelled and I asked her for proof with an email to me stating that fact. She said that it would show up on the order status eventually. Well, it did show up as cancelled, but my card still got charged over $80 anyway. When I went back to check it again it showed up as delivered! I called again and said - it has over a month, I had cancelled it but got charged anyway and never got the items either. Their answer was NO RETURNS and that there was no one on staff that could authorize anykind of returns since they have a strict no return policy. I argued that I was not "returning" that I never got anything to return and that the order had been cancelled. Then they wanted me to provide proof that it had been cancelled. My only proof was gone because I never printed the screen that said "cancelled" in the order status. They took my info. to have some ficticious person call me back to resolve teh complaint - which, of course, never happened. I ended up getting the huge box of junk in the mail a few days later. Broken items with at least 11 things missing completely from the order. I ended up having to get my bank involved. They said they would refund me and then go after e.l.f. for the money and all I had to do was pay to send it back with a registered mail receipt/signature confirmation and provide a copy to the bank. It cost me almost $10 for postage and hours of headaches for nothing. SOOOOOO not worth the excitement of getting so much for so "cheap."


33 ME August 21, 2009 at 10:31 am

Well, I was all geeked, spent about 20 minutes picking out stuff. Was planning of using much of what I was going to order for stocking stuffers for friends and family before I realized you didn't get 75% off of the entire order.

Emptied my cart, still wanted to try their mineral makeup (looking for a cheaper alternative to Bare Minerals), so I got a few things & used the "CAROLINA" code to get 50% off of the first $15. It worked, but it only pretty much covered the $6.95 shipping plus a couple of quarters. So, I'm basically getting about $29 worth of makeup for $21.45. Since I ordered over $20, I believe I'm still eligible for the $9.99 rebate on the magazine that I don't want.
We'll see how the rebate turns out, I'll try to come back with an update!

Never ordered from elf, so I figured I'd give them a shot. The grocery stores around here carry a limited amout of elf product, and I've never had a complaint on what I've used (brushed and nail polish). I was also excited that I didn't have to use my credit card to order; you can use Paypal or Google checkout instead!


34 emily August 21, 2009 at 2:34 pm

I just got an email from ELF with a new coupon code: NEWMINB50

50% off minerals with a $20 purchase.



35 Linda August 21, 2009 at 8:49 pm

This offer isn't working for me either. Will just take $10 off; S/H remains. I tried this a couple of days ago as well and it said the coupon code was invalid.


36 Amber August 22, 2009 at 11:49 pm

It's only giving me $10 off with the 75% off promo code??


37 Amy August 23, 2009 at 7:19 am

the ELF coupon code is only good for $10 off, not 75% off, which
isn't such a deal


38 Mo November 14, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Didn't work! Really sad because now on the website there is,only 50% off:(!


39 Stacy December 6, 2013 at 11:22 pm

I had a couple items that weren't studio and it said could use coupon but I had to have all studio product so I went back and corrected that and when I typed in promo code again it said that coupon had expired!!!! I knew it was too good to be true. Thanks cuz I totally enjoyed wasting 2 hours of my night for nothing
