I haven't been to a MAC Warehouse Sale for a while now. The last time I was there was September of 2010. Check out this post for my haul last time. It wasn't a surprise to me that there were some pretty intense price increases... but nonetheless, prices are still unbeatable compared to the retail store. I did spend more than usual at cosmetic sales this time, but as always, I didn't spend a lot on make up items.
I was super surprised to see Bumble and Bumble products at the sale! I've been on a hunt at Winners for their shampoos and conditioners! Why Winners you may ask... that's because I'm a cheapass lol. Paying regular price at Sehpora is too expensive for me! I literally got way too excited when I saw them yesterday... I was holding way too many bottles in my hands. At last, I settled for two 1L bottles - the Seaweed shampoo ($35) and the Thickening conditioner($45), and one mini size of Straight Shampoo ($4). I know, it's still a lot of money for just shampoo and conditioner, but I've been eyeing these for a long time and my hair has been acting weird lately so I decided to give it a try.
MAC eyeshadow quad in "In the Gallery" ($25)
Lightfall / At the Eyes
In the Gallery / Private Viewing
While everyone and their moms are obsessed about natural eyeshadow shades similar to ones in the Naked Palettes, I find that nude and brown shades don't flatter my eyes too much... However, I can always count on purple. I think it's because cool tones look better rather than warm tones on me.
Naked Honey Body Wash / Naked Honey Hand and Body Cream ($15 buy one get one free)
Plumage / Phloof / Naked Lunch / Satin Taupe ($4 each)
Clinique 3-step home & away set ($40)
The 3 steps include: Liquid Facial Soap, Clarifying Lotion, and Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel with Pump, and their respective travel size - plus a huge make up bag.
I used to use the moisturizer when I was young (before age 13), but never tried the complete skincare. Since I've heard quite a bit of good things about the 3-step system, and being such an adventurous skincare try-er, I've decided to give this a go!
Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Extreme OverNight Ultra Firming Creme ($45)
Another splurge item of the haul! I've been trying the infamous Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum lately so I'm quite curious about the other skincare products in the line as well. I checked at The Bay today and this same creme is selling at $92! Insane I know. I'm glad I got a deal on it even though it's still costly.
Each person gets one free gift right before you exit the building with your ticket. Since I went on Friday and my mom went on Saturday, I now have 2 pairs of lashes. Both are quite awkward for everyday use in my opinion. The top one is short and way too dense for its length. The bottom one is extremely dramatic - I'll probably use this on Halloween.
Charity Item: Mineralize Face + Body Lotion
My mom and I went quite late on both days of the sale so only the lotion was left. I know other people who went early got a hold of the other awesome charity items such as lip glosses and eye shadows, and I'm utterly jealous!!! I guess it's not meant to be :(
If you went to the sale, let me know what you got! :)
