On occasion ELF will have a Mystery box special. After you put $20 worth in your cart you can qualify for a FREE Mystery box using the coupon code. My total was $26.95. I placed my order and the next day they shipped it out via Fedex Smartpost. It took a couple days. I was shock at how big the box was!

Just the bag of what I purchased was big!
This is what I purchased:
- Pencil Sharpener $1
- Crease Brush $1
- Large Stipple Brush $3
- Concealer Palette Light $3
- Concealer Palette Medium $3
- Mineral Eyeshadow Primer $3
- Makeup Remover Cloths $3
- Eye Brow Kit Medium $3
Total = $20 + shipping and handling: $6.95
I really like the crease brush since it does exactly that. I do wish there was a brush available that was bigger like a tapered blending brush. I plan to get some of Wayne Goss brushes next.
I was impressed with the Makeup Remover Cloths. They really do work well. I have been having a problem with taking off all of my mascara and eyeliner. After washing my face with my cleanser is not enough and these cloths do a pretty good job. I would give them 4 stars because it isn’t perfect. I would probably buy these again.
I’m in LOVE with the Stipple brush! This is my favorite brush. I learned about the stipple brush from Wayne Goss and from MAC. MAC sells one that is $50-$30! I found this one for $3 and it is amazing. It works great on putting primer as well as foundation and blending to a flawless finish.
My favorite surprise in my selection was the Eyebrow kit in Medium. I had thought I would get this but I wasn’t sure if this would be a great color. The powder is too red/light brown for me but the gel is a great dark color. I plan on using the gel more and mixing it with some of my darker shades like the Maybelline single Taupe or Paula’s Choice Matte palette dark colors.
I wasn’t as impressed with the concealers as I hoped. I really wanted them so badly! I got both sets just in case and they are just so dark for me. I’m have very fair skin. I plan on working with them some more but I doubt I will ever by them again. They are very creamy and tend to fall into any wrinkle that I have. Bummer!
This is my Mystery Bag! Again, I was so impressed with the size of the bag.
This is what I received:
- Geometric Eyeshadow 36 colors Addition II $12 currently on sale $6
- Crystal Blush brush in Pink $5
- Crystal eyeliner brush in Pink $5
- All Over Color Stick in Toasted $1
- Shimmer Lipgloss $2
- Waterproof Eyeliner Crayon $3
Total Value = $28-$22 (depending on the sale item)
I really enjoy the Geometric eyeshadow set. I don’t like the size of the triangle shapes because it is hard to fit my brush in some of the colors. I probably won’t buy a set like this because of this but it is a great set to try and the colors are amazing.
I’m impressed with the Shimmer Lipgloss since I’m not a big fan of lip glosses like this.
I also liked the all over color stick. I will definately try this in other colors like the pink.
I still need to try the waterproof eyeliner crayon.
I wasn’t impressed with the Crystal Blush or eyeliner brush so I gave those to my daughter. She loves them to play with.
I would definitely do this again! Even if they aren’t my favorite I can give these to other people to try too.
