Spring 2011 Shiseido / Nars Sale Haul

Last weekend, I went to the Shiseido / Nars Cosmetic Sale in Markham. This sale seriously has some awesome bargains for makeup!I think I did pretty well this time! I only picked up a few makeup products for myself because I think I'm good for skincare for a while.

This sale took place last weekend on
Friday (VIP ticket required)
Saturday
Sunday

I went on Saturday, which was the first day that was opened to public. My mom and I got there at 7:50am thinking that we were super early since the sale starts at 9am. And we were so wrong, there were already tons of people lining up! We got in at around 9:40am which wasn't too bad.


Shiseido Makeup Silky Eye Shadow Duo in S17 ($8)
Silver Thistle / Rose Chardon

This product is available on the YesStyle site for $38!! Being able to get it at $8 makes me insanely happy :D I wanted a grey matte eyeshadow for a while, and I realized I don't have any pink e/s in my collection so I went ahead to grab this one.


Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in GD804 ($8)

This type of e/s palettes was not available in the tester area for some reason. A girl asked for it and the sales lady brought back a box from the back with these palettes inside. She opened each one for her to see. My mom saw one in PK403 and fell in love so I immediately helped her asked for it, then I saw this one in GD804 and got it as well. I'm not sure why they held these at the back without having testers for them :S

On the official site, this palette is available for $40.


Shiseido The Makeup Shimmering Lipstick in SL12 ($10)

I think coral lipsticks are in this summer? I picked this one up because I didn't fall in love with the really pigmented lipsticks there. This one is quite sheer but also buildable. I'm not a big fan of my lip shape so I try to stay away from bold colours (even though I love them on other people).


Shiseido Pureness Blemish Clearing Gel ($12)

When I went to the sale, I had a huge painful cystic pimple on my chin. My mom found this gel for me and I decided to give this a try. I'll do a review on this in the future.


Much Love.

I just "got over" a cystic pimple. I never knew what they were until now! =/ Are they pimples underneath the skin?

@Rainy Days and Lattes Yes they are the pimples deep under the skin! They're so evil and painful :( I hate them!

i heard the shiseido pureness blemish clearing gel is good. I have used the boscia one you can get @ sephora. it works pretty well. it definitely does reduce the scar left behind. so if this one doesnt do the job, go to sephora to ask for a sample of the boscia (the sample is more than enough to last you) then decide if you want to purchase the full size.

7:50 is too early, but hey, things we do for makeup, right?!;D

Oh wow, those are some really good bargains! Love the colours of that Shisedo eye colour trio

In reply to your comment: I'm 161cm (5' 3") tall :)
Also, I'm going to do a proper review on the clothes after a few wears and washes, if you're interested. I think I was really lucky to have got a good batch from AFW, but yes, wholesale websites generally have bad rep, so it's a bit of a risk, really.

If you do buy anything, do show off your AFW buys :)

I went to the sale too! And I think I saw you (;
At first I didn't know where I have seen you before... but now I do! (;
I should've said Hi ><"

Rinny said...

You got some really great deals! These type of sales always seem to draw a lot of ppl but I guess if you're willing to be patient you can walk away with some great bargains :)
