MAC Warehouse Sale Weekend December 2013

Hi Sparklies

I can't believe it's been A YEAR since I last gone to the sale! I have been super busy with work and missed many of them! I always say this: the sale is not as good as before, but over the year I've heard WORSE things. Regardless, here's my coverage and I hope you get the most out of it =)




This is the first time I actually saw them list out what's located in which room! I still remember my first year going to the sale, I literally drew out a map based on all the videos and blog posts I watched/read to gear up for a game plan lolol!! So here you are!

$15 for Face Powder and Blushes
The Selection was very small in my opinion compared to previous years! Considering I'm a blush freak, I was pretty disappointed. They had MAC Pinch O' Peach, MAC Taupe Shape, MAC Immortal Flower (I thought were pretty nice hehe)

$12 Liquid Foundations Make Up and Assorted Mascara
As usual, they have some very very dark Bobbi Brown shades, my favourite light shade one is totally gone. There are many Clinique, MAC and Estee Lauder foundations. To my surprise though, I actually saw a few Smashbox primers this year but it was the purple one.

Perfumes and Gift Sets
It's crazy how much more gift sets for perfumes they have now! Michael Kors, DKNY, Clinqine, Elizabeth Arden.. the list almost seems endless! I'm not a fan of gift sets and I'm very particular about my perfume collection so I didn't find this a good deal for me. Most of them are ranging from $30 - $50 and there are also some Buy 1 Get 1 Free deals. 



My first time seeing Smashbox at the sale!

Sorry, my picture for the charity bag is a little confusing! 
Stupid me, I only had $10 cash so I was only able to get 2 charity bags on friday. 
They are $5 each and limited to 4 per person. 

Bag #1
MAC Minerialized Skinfinish Blush in Rio
MAC Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolour in Boss Brown
MAC Eyeshadow in Wrinkle (satin)

Bag #2
MAC Minerialized Skinfinish Blush in Rio
MAC Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolour in Boss Brown
MAC Eyeshadow in Beluga (veluxe)

I'm seriously in love with the blush omigosh!!! I'm going to wear it when I go to Rio heheh! :) 

Overall:

Overall, prices has gone up (like WAY up). My ultimate favourite Bobbi Brown Cleansing Oil is now $45 for 400ml while I used to buy it for $20-30 max! There are way too many perfumes gift sets and Bath+Body gift sets. My favourite is to drool all over the colourful make up and skin care but they all are too overpriced for a warehouse sale now. 

Another thing I noticed while I was in line was that, Estee Lauder gives out WAY too many tickets out now! I was chatting with random ladies and so many of them never been to the sale before! Their friday ticket number turned out to be 22000+!! I almost feel like this sale is not exclusive like before anymore (hence, they keep raising the prices)

Anways, I hope they never take out some of the traditions though such as the $4 bins section and the charity bags. And I hope they would stop raising the $4 bins as well (used to be $2 like 4 years ago)! It's getting super unreasonable! 

HAPPY SHOPPING!
