So I attended the MAC Warehouse sale this morning! I woke up at 5 because I couldn't get back to sleep and left at 6:30 and got there for 7:30 and I was probably in the first 50-ish to get in..
so a little background on the sales:
It's an Estee Lauder and affiliated companies private sale, brands that are available at a CCO in the states are there but are usually even more discounted
Not just anyone can come. Tickets are given to Estee lauder employees and companies in the area of the sale that do work for EL.
Tickets are not meant to be sold but can be found on craigslist and kijiji for usually ridiculous prices. Beware of fakes.
It's held at Markham Fairgrounds just outside Toronto, ON Canada.
To the most of my knowledge, it doesn't exist anywhere else in the world.
I think there's something similar in NY but I have no idea about details.
I spent $298.32 before charity bags so $318.32 overall. My budget was $300 because I recently got paid for the worst summer of my life working and my grandparents came over and decided to give me some money for no real reason (school's starting, you need money etc.) And it sounds like a lot to spend in one go but the retail value of all the items easily makes it worth it.
I don't really wanna discuss prices; if you've been before you know what they are. If you really wanna know specifics comment below and I'll tell you :)I just don't wanna list the prices for everything off the bat because I'm too lazy :P
