The Lipstick League - Week of 8.24.15

The Lipstick League Question of the Week

How many makeup products do you use for an everyday face? 

G's answer: For my regular, "nothing fancy, just get the job done and look professional" face, I require nine products: foundation, concealer, setting powder, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, brow pencil or gel, and lipstick.

NEW from NYX: Slide On Lip Pencils (Long-Wear Waterproof Matte Lip Liners)

So I was cruising the "New" section on the Ulta website this morning, as I'm prone to do a few times a week, and I stumbled across something absolutely new to me (I can't find a single mention of these on the internet, aside from on the Ulta site, as of the time of this post):

Free Shipping On All Orders at e.l.f. (Plus: New Mattifying Blotting Papers)

Free shipping again at e.l.f.! So soon? Who's complaining, right?

Right now on the e.l.f. website, receive free shipping on all orders, no minimum required, no code required. This offer includes new items, like the brand new Mattifying Blotting Papers pictured above (click here for more info about those). The e.l.f. email I received did NOT list an end-date for the free shipping promo, so I do not know when it will expire.

PS: Since there's no code required to get free shipping, I tried one of the codes on the Retailmenot site ("22FREE" to get a free mini palette with any $25+ purchase) and it would now allow me to have both the freebie and free shipping. So you cannot combine the free shipping promo with any codes. It's an either/or situation.

The e.l.f. Skincare Line Has Landed at Walmart

Until very recently, I think we all collectively looked to Target to get the newest e.l.f. products first (before any other mass retailer). But lately, as in REALLY recently, Walmart seems to be getting certain e.l.f. products before Target. For example, Walmart now carries the new-ish e.l.f. Essential Fan Brush, and I haven't seen that at Target yet (as of last week, my Target didn't have it).

And now, this:

e.l.f. Skincare Collection at Walmart 
(retail: $5 - $12)

Thanks so much to longtime photo contributor Tara (@taraaroth on Instagram) for letting me know that she spotted the entire e.l.f. Skincare collection at her local Walmart this week. As far as I know, this line is not yet at Target (I just checked and it's not on the Target site as of the time of this post). Interesting, right?

I hope this is good news for those of you who were waiting until this line was in-store before trying it out! Hopefully this means it will be at Target soon as well.

For more info about the e.l.f. Skincare collection, CLICK HERE.

Thanks so much, Tara, for the fantastic sighting and pic!

Spotted: NEW Olay Active Botanicals Skincare with Snow Mushroom

I've been hearing some buzz about this new skincare line from Olay for a few weeks now, so I'm excited to let you know that it's now hitting stores!

Thanks so much to longtime photo-contributor Tara (@taraaroth on Instagram) for this one:

Spotted: NEW L'Oreal Voluminous Superstar Liquid Eyeliner

Last week I showed you the new L'Oreal Superstar Mascara (CLICK HERE if you missed that post), but did you know that there's also an eyeliner in this line? I sure didn't! Thanks to longtime photo-contributor Tara (@taraaroth on Instagram) for this one:

NEW L'Oreal Voluminous Superstar Liquid Eyeliner in 202 Black
"Winged Liner Look"

Tara spotted this new eyeliner next to the Superstar Mascara at Target this week. This is a fine-point felt-tip liquid liner designed to give you a "winged liner look." After some digging, I discovered that, just like the mascara, this liner has been out in the UK for a few months. You can check out UK blogger Really Ree's review of it HERE

Have you spotted this liner (or the new mascara) in your area yet? Thoughts?

Thanks again, Tara, for the great sighting!
