  1. Hi - can you enter more than one video?

    1. Hi, unfortunately we can only accept one entry per person :)

  2. Love your hair colour, it's amazing especially with that colour of lip stain!

  3. I think it's very unfair that almost all of your competitions involve making promotional videos. Just because I don't own a camera or don't want to get in front of one for the whole world to see, doesn't mean I love E.L.F. products any less :(

    1. Hi there thanks for your comments, we do always try to incorporate a variety of competitions for our fans to take part in! We have ran plenty of giveaways that didn't involve creating a video in the past such as our weekly Friday Favourites giveaway on the blog. I understand your concerns about being in front of a camera, however the video entry need not feature you yourself, you can be creative and prepare a slideshow with text of your fave elf hero if you much prefer! :)

  4. I completely agree with the other Anon, I hate making videos and I don't have Facebook..

    1. Hi, we're so sorry to hear that this competition isn't something that will enjoy, we try to satisfy all our fans who come from so many different platforms including blog, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube or even Pinterest. However I hope that you can appreciate that it can be difficult to cater for all our platforms in one competition. We run regular competitions and if one competition is not suitable I hope that you will be able to participate in the next one :)

  5. Haha, just re read the rules, i thought it was minimum 30 seconds, i completely rushed. Now i realise it's max. Oops!!

    Hope i can still keep it as is! Though it is 29


We would love know what you think! Leave us a comment below it will make our day! :0) Thanks!
