Estee Lauder / MAC Warehouse Sale!

A friend of mine I work with was able to get me a "golden" ticket to the MAC warehouse sale! 
I have been to warehouse sales before but I rarely purchase anything. 
This was my first time going to an Estee Lauder and Co. "invite only" and wasn't expecting much except big lineups.  But, I quickly realized there was a lot of MAC stuff that I loved or couldn't get anymore! I ended up getting a lot more than I thought and I can't wait to go again! 

Here is the stuff I purchased and closeups of what I think will be my favs!

left to right starting at the back
cute bag for $2, MAC bag (great for eyeliners), mac volcanic ash exfoliator, mixing medium, lustre drops, all woman eye shadow quad, eyeshadow in sparkle neely sparkle! estee lauder eyeshadow base, dipdown gel liner, blush in pink swoon, blush in poised, blush in taupe (great contour colour), bronzer in bronze, brush #'s 184, 272, 311

 I was so happy when I saw this #184 fan brush!  I wanted one for awhile
 I didn't know MAC had a angle shading brush, so naturally I got it
 I was keeping an eye on this one, perfect for lip or eye lining

cute $4 bag for eyeliners!

great eyeshadow palette, called All Woman and colours I don't have!

thought of my Aunt when I saw this colour, she looks fab in warm browns
this one is called Sparkle Neely, Sparkle! 
great for fall

 Estee Lauder double wear stay-in-place eyeshadow base
I am always a sucker for eyeshadow base, I hope it holds up!

Mmmm lustre drops! great for a highlighter on tanned or dark skin

already have this Volcanic Ash Exfoliator and love it!! I think I should got a couple more

 always wanted to try this, it's a Pro product so only available on Queen St in Toronto or online
now I can play! 
Formula to dilute and mix with M·A·C powder or liquid makeup. Used to create effects from sheer to opaque. Perfect to decorate the face or body. Mix with pigments and powders to create a number of custom shades and colours. It offers sheer, even coverage and long-wearing attributes. Create custom body lotions or use to thin down heavier foundations such as M•A•C Full Coverage Foundation. Use alone to give the skin a satin glow.


  1. Always a fun time and some good buys. However, this time they cheaped out and did not offer a thankyou/goodbye gift when you checked out. As well, the charity bag contents sucked. Prices are going up but the selection is going down. Let us know if the Estee Lauder eyeshadow base is any good - I almost bought it but wasn't sure.

  2. thanks for your comment. Now I wish I was able to go in the early days ;)
    I do love the brushes and my new eyeshadow quad! I will let you know how the EL e/s base works...

  3. how much did you get the eyeshadow quad for ?
