Along Came the Estee Lauder/Mac Warehouse Sale (Haul)

Hey Everyone! It's been AGES since I've posted on the blog or been active on Youtube. I've been busy with school and then I got sick. =( Now, I'm feeling much better and I even made it to the Mac Warehouse Sale yesterday in Toronto (Markham). YAY! My AWESOME friend Minnie hooked me up with complimentary tickets to the sale. I was so thrilled to hear that she had extra tickets for me. I really appreciated it and it was my first time going so the experience was amazing! Thnx Minnie! You're the best!!! <3

On the topic of Sales:

Mac will be having the Sumo Big Savings 25% off Sale for 3 days June 16-18
I'm assuming it will be online only.


So stay alert for any future Mac email notifications.

Here's my Mac Warehouse Sale Haul.


I went on a Sunday so many items were sold out but it's all good...I still got many great products. The best day to go is on a Friday. The maximum spending was $600.00 this time and there are limits to the number of products you buy as well. Obviously, I didn't come no where to that. My haul total was about $200.00

The lashes and mini Fix+ bottles were only $3.00
Lash #41 - Chill Collection
Tiger, Tiger, Hue, Gladiola, Prestigious, Posh, Monodramatic

These lip products were $10 each. Buy 3 get 1 free.
Of course, I just had to stock up on Gladiola lipstick. It my HG hot pink lippie!
I LOVE IT THAT MUCH!

Other Worldly Blush, Stark Naked Blush, Two To Glow Mineralize Eyeshadow
These compacts were $12 each. Buy 3 get 1 free.

They even had MSFs there but many were sold out. =(

Other Worldly Blush
: My Other Love! I had to buy backups of these babies too.

Stark Naked Blush: I can't believe I missed this beautiful blush during the release. Also, the gorgeous Ricquetta was raving about this blush so much...I just had to give in. Thnx for the rec hun!

Cash Flow Paintpot, Vintage Gold Pigment, Reflects Bronze Glitter, Bronzescape Solar Bits, Sea Me Shadestick

These eye products were $9 each.

I didn't bother getting any eyeshadows this time since I tried to get items that had more retail value like the pigments/paintpots. If I ever end up going again, I'll definitely be buying more pigments next time.

There are charity bags that are only $5.00 and these proceeds go to The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundations. It's always good to give!

This one contains: Charged Water, Magnetic Fields Eyeshadow, Think Tan Slimshine, #249 Brush

Blot Film Sheet, Flip Eyeshadow, Marquise 'D Lipstick, Mousse Slimshine

Mac Wipes, Deep Shade Eyeshadow, All's Fair Lipstick, Intimidate Slimshine

These are all the lipsticks I got from the charity bags. =D

As for Style Warriors...I only did a One Item Haul!

I initially had plans on purchasing three prducts from Style Warriors Collection.
Brave New Bronze lipstick, Purple Rite lipstick and Bright Future eyeshadow. The other items I already had but in different packaging. I had the bronzers and Eversun blush and some similar eyeshadow colours. Now, I'm trying hard not to buy such similar shades.

Brave New Bronze lipstick was similar to nude peachy pink lipsticks that I already have so I passed on that. (Kinda Sexy, Cherish) BUT...who knos I might grab it during the upcoming Mac sale...lol I love NUDE LIPPIES!

Bright Future Eyeshadow is a bright, vibrant yellow shade but as I was swatching it, the colour payoff wasn't so impressive. I thought it would a glide on smooth type texture since it is a veluxe pearl. I might just buy the Bright Sunshine pan eyeshadow from the Mac pro store later on.

The solar bits from this collection are quite pretty. Especially, Impassioned! I may consider it during the sale.

Now....*drum roll*
The Star of Style Warriors Collection is...
Purple Rite Lipstick
(Yes, according to me it is..... My One Item Haul)

It's a gorgeous lavender frost shade. It's a shade I don't have and it's quite unique. I'm not a big fan of frost lipsticks but this was an exception.

I have fallen in love with lavender shades lately and I'm totally DIGGIN' them.

The love started from Up the Amp, Lavender Whip, Fashion Mews and now...Purple Rite lipstick.

OMG I need to move to either the USA or Canada I guess, they never have sales like that here in Holland.. :( Can you make a Swatch in pruple right? I saw it yesterday and it looked to dark for my nw40 skin.. Instead of that I bought the Sunsational L/s and the refined golden bronzer

Definitely keeping my eyes open for that MAC online sale. Can't wait!!!
