L'oreal Warehouse Sale Fall 2014 Haul ( Sept 20- Oct 12 2014)

Here it is, finally!!! :)  I've been waiting for this sale for the longest time. Everytime I go to Walmart I would stop by the L'oreal and Maybelline section to check out the quads and the infallible eyeshadows and never buy them coz I know they will be much cheaper at the warehouse sale. I was able to get a few Maybelline tattoos on sale at Target a few months back and loved it so much that I wanted more! So as you can see I hoarded the Maybelline quads and tattoos :) LOL.

Ok, here's what I got:
130,400, 300, 100, 200, 140
I got 6 Maybelline Quads for $2.75 each, reg $ 9.96. Thats is definitely a steal!

Here are the rest of the Maybelline products I got:
Master Glaze in Plums Up - $ 3.75, reg $9.96
Master Highlight in Nude - $ 3.75, reg $12.96
Baby Lips - $2.75, reg $ 3.96
Bigeyes Falsies Mascara - $3.75, reg $ 8.96
Dream Lumi concealer in Beige - $ 3.75 - reg $ 9.96
Color tattoos in Rich Mahogany, Edgy Emerald, Electric Blue and Mossy Green - $ 2.75 each , reg $ 6.96

Here's the L'oreal products:
Voluminous Power 24H mascara - $ 2.75, reg $ 8.96
True Match foundation in Suntan - $ 6.75, reg $ 12.98
Magic BB in Fair - $ 5.75, reg $ 10.96
Visible Lift in Classic Ivory - $ 4.25, reg $ 5.99 (
Youth Code BB Cream in Medium - $ 4.75, reg $ 19.96
Quads in Neon Skirt and Midnight - $3 each, reg $ 9.96
Infallible eyeshadows in Bronze Divine and Magnetic Coral - $3 ea, reg $9.32
Lipgloss in Infinite Fuchsia - $ 3, reg $ 7.96

A couple of Garnier products:
Hydra recharge - $2, also on sale at walmart for the same price!
Ultralift Eye roller - $ 4.75, reg $ 16.47

And lastly....
Lancome Hypnose Star mascara - $ 18.75, reg $33.50 - the most expensive one in this haul!

I am totally pleased with what I got and in total I saved about 60% off retail ( compared to Walmart prices). So again, never buy these products at full price! Be patient and wait for the warehouse sales! :)

The Revlon sale is also ongoing at the International Center, in case you want Revlon, Cover Girl and other P & G products...

Until next time...

L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint - Review and Swatches

Hey Glamourose peeps! It's been over a month since my last post and I have a lot of stuff I wanted to share with you :) First is this LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint! I've seen a lot of good reviews and I got curious about this product, however I can't find any Canadian reseller online! It's probably at the Designer Cosmetic Shop but I'm sure the price will be more than double ( sucks to be in Canada sometimes :( ) Anyways, I found it at and their shipping charges are very reasonable. They sell it for $2.99 each but  if you buy a set of 6 shades  ( which was the original release - now they have 18 shades), you can get it for $15.99 and shipping to Canada is only $7+! I got the shades Coy, Bombshell, Hot Mess, Baby Doll, Blushing and Pin-Up.

Here are the swatches:
LA Girl Glazed Paint Blushing

LA Girl Glazed Paint Bombshell
LA Girl Glazed Paint Coy
LA Girl Glazed Paint Hot Mess
Hot Mess
LA Girl Glazed Paint Baby Doll
Baby Doll
LA Girl Glazed Paint Pin-Up

My favorite is the shade Blushing - it's like a nude pink brown. Sorry the pictures does not do justice to the actual color :( Bombshell is Fuchsia, Coy is Purple, Hot Mess is Orange, Pin-Up is Red and baby Doll is Barbie Pink. All these shades are very opaque and pigmented. I used a lip brush to apply to kinda lighten it up, otherwise it will be very intense. It has a minty feel when you apply it  due to the peppermint oil but it does not feel dry even after hours of wear and no sticky feeling. It also has a long wear time and fades nicely. I would say it lasted about 3-4 hours on me, even after drinking and eating.

I really love this product and for the price I can honestly say, you get more than what you paid for! This is definitely a good buy for me! I hope to get more.... soon! :)

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....

NARS / Shiseido Warehouse Sale Spring 2014 Haul

So I went to the NARS sale yesterday ( Saturday) and after reading previous posts and asking pixelbunny about the best time to go there, I decided to go in the afternoon. I arrived at 1pm, there were about 10 people in the line and in less than 5 minutes I was inside! It was not as chaotic as some people had experienced so I was very pleased :) I went there with a goal, just get NARS products and stick to my budget! I'm proud to say I was able to do it! Woo Hoo!!

Here's an overview of what I got:
The Shiseido products are from the Gift bag that you can purchase at the cashier. They increased the price to $20 as they added a foundation refill and a concealer to the usual 6 pcs of eyeshadows, which is still good I guess..

Here's the details of what I got and their price:

Sheer Matte Foundation in Tahoe - $15 ( reg $ 55)
The Multiple in Maldives - $15 (reg $ 46)
Concealer in Ginger - $10 (reg $ 28)
Lip Gloss in Dolce Vita - $ 10 ( reg $29)
Lipstick in Tutti Frutti - $10 ( reg $30)
Eyeshadow Duo in Paramaribo - $10 (reg $ 39)

SHISEIDO - Gift Bag - All for $20!
4 x Simmering Cream Eyecolor in Black, Moss Green, Lime Green and Gold ( reg $30 each!)
1 x Hydro Powder Eyeshadow in Tiger Eye ( Copper - peach orange) (reg $25)
Perfect Smoothing Compact Refill in Natural Fair Ivory ( reg $ 36 )
Concealer in Light Enhancer ( reg $ 25 )

Here's the fun part, the swatches :)

The first 2 from left are the NARS Duo then the rest are Shiseido

Here's another view, bottom 2 are the NARS Duo

From L-R: Dolce Vita, Tutti Frutti, NARS Ginger Concealer, Multiple in Maldives and Shiseido Concealer

I must say the Tutti Frutti lipstick and Dolce Vita lipgloss are a match made in heaven! They are so perfect together, its the perfect pink brown color! All the eyshadows are great too. I purposely didn't get a lot of NARS eyeshadows coz I know I'm getting the eyehadow gift bag from Shiseido, and I'm not disappointed at all the colors I got. I will definitely use them all! The Multiple in Maldives is so gorgeous,its definitely perfect for summer!

One thing I noticed though is that the foundation and concealer shades are mostly for medium to dark skin tones. The lightest I found for the foundation is Tahoe, which is med-dark. I wanted to get Custard for concealer but they were already out so I got Ginger, which is almost my skin tone. Maybe they were sold out during the VIP sale?? They also have a sign about the NARS gift bag for $20 but the were already sold out :(

If you missed this spring sale, next one is in the fall, watch out for the announcement. In the meantime, you may want to head out to the MAC / Estee Lauder Sale on June 6-8. It's by invitation only and I still have a few tickets to give away, just follow my blog and like my facebook page and send me a message. 

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it! :)

Until then...
