MAC Warehouse Sale Haul - June 2014 (75% savings!)

The MAC - Estee Lauder Warehouse sale started yesterday ( Friday, June 6) and this is my first time going on the first day of this 3-day sale. My sister-in-law and I went there in the afternoon, around 1:30, to avoid the crowd and the typical long line-ups, and we were successful, there was no line up at all!

Without further ado, here's the snapshot of what I got:

Here are the prices:

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion - $10 ( they sell as 2 for $20) ( reg $ 30+ each)
Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay All Day Foundation in Tawny- $12 (reg $ 44)
Tom Ford Foundation Stick in Caramel - $15 ( reg U$ 78!)
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Warm Natural - $ 12 ( reg $ 53)
MAC Snow Globe Warm Palette - $12.50 ( they sell as 2 for $25) ( reg $ 38)
Bobbi Brown Ultimate Party Palette - $15 ( they sell as 2 for $30) ( reg $ 65)
MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre - $ 12 ( reg $ 20)
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lighscapade - $ 15 ( reg $ 32)
MAC Brush in 266 ( not in the picture coz its for my friend) $ 12 ( reg $20)


The FREE gift when you surrender your ticket at the exit is the MAC Prolong wear eyeshadow in Always Sunny ( reg $ 21)

The Charity Bag ( the items in the plastic bag), which costs $5/bag, includes MAC Fluidline Gel Liner ( reg $ 16), MAC Lipstick  ( reg $18) and MAC Mineralize eyeshadow ( $21)

And here are some of the swatches:



So again, I am very pleased with what I got and for the price I paid! I won't be able to purchase any of these items if it's not on sale or heavily discounted like this! :) Although these are from past releases or from Holiday collections from past years, they are not expired and being a  high end make up, the quality remains the same. The no 1 reason why I went on a Friday is to get a glimpse of  a Tom Ford make up, I was hoping there was a lipstick , but I'm happy with my foundation stick, which never in a million years will I buy at a regular price!

As I previously mentioned in my post, they also have brands like Origins, Bumble and Bumble, DKNY fragrances, Clinique, Smashbox, Coach Fragrances, Michael Kors fragrances, and a lot more which some of them I haven't heard of,  basically  all the brands under the Estee Lauder group.

Although I am happy with my purchases it is kinda disappointing that their prices are continuously going up!They don't even have the $4 bin section this time. :( A few years back I was able to buy 3 MAC eyeshadow palettes for 3 for $35 now its $25 per palette, their pigment set used to be $18 nowt its $25! I also don't understand the idea behind the "2 of the same item for a discounted price" deal?! Why can't they offer a mix match deal like before?? Sorry if I'm ranting here, just saying... LOL

Anyways, my make up junkie friends, I hope you enjoy this haul and I really hope you don't buy your make up at full price! :) Schedule your make up purchases around these warehouse sales and you will save a ton of money, I promise! Next Estee Lauder sale is around Sept. There will be another Lancome / Loreal Sale sometime in October, then NARS , Shiseido Sale in November and the last of the MAC sale for the year is in December. There's also the Revlon Sale in between these months.

Until then....
