June Mac Warehouse Sale 2010

Hey guys,

Sorry for the delayed posting of my (mini) haul from the Mac Warehouse Sale. Before I begin I just want to tell you all about my first experience there.If this bores you, feel free to skip ahead. So I went with my good friend on Sunday, June 6th and arrived at 7:50 even though it starts at 9am. It was raining that day but we're lucky because they let us wait inside. There were already about 50 people there. An hour later, they let our whole group in. There are three large rooms in there each filled with Mac goodies and other brands owned by Estee Lauder such as Clinique, Origins. I just focused on Mac. Overall, we spend around 2 hours there since there was hardly any line ups at all. Advice: just arrive early and bring paper and pen to write down the things you want.

There were three items that I regret not buying. First is the Eversun blush from the Style warriors collection which I instead picked up Blossoming Blushcreme. Second is the DKNY Be Delicious perfume. It was only $35 for the 50mL but it just wasn't my top priority. Third is the Mac Fix+ Rose. I'm also upset I didn't see the Mac Face and Body Foundation which I heard was there for only $10, originally close to $40.

Anyways, for the things that I did purchase was not that much. I'm overall happy about it since I saved a lot of money. By the way, sorry for the sucky pictures, lighting was not good.

Here's my collective purchases minus one since I sold my Sweet William Blush Creme to my friend.
Now my individual items:
Select Cover-up Concealer in NW25 (hopefully this is the right colour) for $7, regularly $20
Probably the best deal of the day other than the Charity Pack. Devoted Poppy: 6: Classic Eyes from the 2008 Holiday Collection? Love the jeweled packaging! On special buy 1 get 1 free for $15, so my friend and I bought one. Paid $7.50, originally $44 (?)
These two lipglasses cam in the Charity Pack. All money goes to Breast Cancer research. 4 full sized items for $5. Lipglass in Pret a papier, nice dark burgundy red and Lustreglass in LustreWhite, shimmery clear gloss.
Ohhh crappy photo. Two lipsticks both Lustre finishes for buy 1 get 1 free for $15. Left in Made with Love, right in A Rose Romance (pretty pink).
Brill eyeshadow, satin finish. Came in charity bag. Silvery blue colour.

Gorgeous pigment (in old packaging hurrah!) in Jardin Aires. Shimmery coppery champagne. Messy but oh so many uses. Paid $9, originally $23.
Cremeblush in Blossoming. Paid $12, originally $23 (?). Don't know if I should keep it, some people say this blush is glittery. Haven't used it yet.
Brow pencil came in Charity Pack. Colour in Taupe, universal colour.

So that's my haul! Hope you enjoyed. I'm going to have fun with these products for a while.
Talk to you later
