Elf’s Beauty Squad

So I recently had the pleasure of utilizing the points for Elf’s Beauty Squad feature. it consisted of me getting excited and having a cart of $80 dollars worth of stuff. I was under the impression that I could utilize the points towards the redemption of some of the goodies in my basket. This was due to the the reason the page at the time said that 6 points = 1 and since I was in the A lister category I had a ton of points. The rewards was obscure and I went into the FAQS for clarification.

It was highly disappointing for me to find out that I could choose one item for five hundred points. For five hundred points I could choose only only gifts that were up to $7 and they weren’t attractive items. At the time ELF had a code that everybody could have utilized which gave three free makeup items and also magazines which was worth way MORE. The redemption codes for the Beauty Squad aren’t befitting the amount of points you need to give up. As the following states :

The first one for 150 points is okay. For 500 points you also get a gift with purchase difference is you can choose it. The 350 points gift is a mystery. 750 points helps you attain 25% off your purchase. Is it for all of ELF items? I don’t know. As new items are not part of promos or redemption’s which makes the Beauty Squad program a complete flop. This is due to the fact that ELF has regular promos for regular items for 40% to 50% off. So its meaningless to have this program and in no regards make me want to spend more money as a consumer just because I am a beauty squad member. Mind you I am an “A” Lister.

My suggestions allow your system to accept two promo codes. Change one of the promo codes, in the Beauty Squad rewards, where the consumer gets gifts. If the consumer does choose gifts for 500 points, let them choose up to $16 dollars worth of items, which is based on the value Elf gave to 150 points. The choose your sale day should encompass all your items on the website. This exception should only be done for the Beauty Squad rewards. Which also means that the consumer can choose their gifts from the new items section as well!

I did end up purchasing some goodies. Especially some new items. Let me know if you would like a review or if you’d ever used the Beauty Squad points before?

 

Wet n Wild Lipsticks

Ranters I have to convey my latest Rant on how GREAT these lipsticks are! They have been compared on YouTube to Mac Lipsticks plus they are Cruelty Free. Save the Bunnies Peeps. The cost is inexpensive $1.99 and at times 50% off at any local drugstore. Sweet!

My fellow blogger BMJ2K was very passionate not too long ago about Wet n Wild. So there will be other episodes or blogs dedicated to this brand as they have launched new items recently and were brought to THIS RANTER’S attention by Mr. BMJ2K ! Just kidding but he does like giving me the push I need to rant to my hearts content LOLS.

This brand takes it upon itself to put itself out there regarding how it represents itself and its image to customers. The ingredients are mentioned in the FAQ’a which is easily accessible. They also have a vegan list in the FAQ’s which makes them an even more valuable brand which great prices and values.

Without further ado lets begin………Here are the swatches of all the nice MegaLast lip colors that I currently own:

Lipstick Swatches

  1. 24 Carrot Gold: Its a Great summer color that is always in my purse.
  2. Pink Suga: Awesome nude shade if your looking for one. Goes with mostly all skin tones
  3. Purty Persimmon: I heard is a great dupe for some Mac shades. I have no idea which shades but I bought it anyway. You can probably do a search on YouTube for the exact shade
  4. Pinkerbell: Love the name! What a fairy tale?! Where the hell is my prince charming people!
  5. Bare it All: Oh ya going Nude is the way to go
  6. Just Peachy: is perfect lip heaven. It goes great with Lip gloss
  7. Dollhouse Pink: is NEON pink. Excellent shade for the summer.
  8. Raven Raisin is such a unique  color. Great for Halloween or if your into Wicca. Beautiful and bold for a daring look.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Beautiful lip colors all in their own right. I also want to talk about their packaging. Packaging is very cheap with the top coming off damaging my lipstick. It was upsetting since it caused the lipstick to break from the bottom like it was on a roller coaster ride. Also the lipstick does get all over the top cover like no tomorrow.  So cheap packaging is given but then again you do get what you pay for which is $1.99 BUT Wet n Wild’s Silk Finish Lipsticks is only $0.99 and the packaging is way better. So I think they can actually make their MegaLast Lipsticks packaging more durable. I hope Wet n Wild will consider my suggestion.                                                                           Last and not least I would like to say I am not being sponsored to rant my innermost thought.  Let me know what colors you have. How you feel about Wet n wild or just say Hi as a ranter!
