Get Ready for Back-to-School with e.l.f.'s Birthday Makeup Sale

There is just about one month left before school starts up again and even less time for those who need to head off to college orientation.  In addition to the usual school supplies and a back-to-school wardrobe, the start of school is the perfect time to clean out your teen's makeup drawer and replace old eye makeup, lipsticks, brushes and applicators . . . all things that need to be clean and germ-free.  The fun of choosing new makeup is just an added bonus!

Since e.l.f. is likely one of the most-used brands of cosmetics and beauty tools in your home, the e.l.f. birthday makeup sale would be the perfect excuse to get started on replacing some of your or your daughter's old and outdated cosmetics.  e.l.f. is currently celebrating its 8th birthday with 8 weeks of special promotions.  For example, the e.l.f. Studio 11pc Brush Collection (regularly $30) is only $.88 with your purchase of $60 or more when you checkout with Code: BDBRUSHES or you can receive Free Shipping on your order totalling over $25 when you checkout with Code: SHIP25.  Both promotions end on August 5th, 2012 and you can only use one promo code with each order.

Since the beginning of July, I have been starting to think ahead for Christmas.  Stocking stuffers would be so much easier if my daughter were old enough to wear makeup.  Now is the time to take advantage of e.l.f.'s birthday promotions to pick up a few bottles of nail polish and some glitter eyeliner for your teen's stocking.  For more ideas, visit to checkout their "Gifts for Teens" category.
