Happy short week Thursday! Just a short post for today to end the work week. I usually head over to the L'Oreal sale a few times a year and the one I attended on Wednesday was the first of 2013. It also happened to be opening day, which I have never gone on. All the Shelves seem stacked pretty well, with unpacking and stacking being done while I was there, close to closing that day.
If you are unfamiliar with these sales, they are invitation only and basically offer L'Oreal branded (umbrell, garnier, lancome, Essie, Redkin and Maybelline just to name a few) cosmetics, perfume, haircare, skincare, etc which are overstock or discontinued at a discounted price. The prices usually very product to product and year by year. My sister found some great deals on lipsticks ($2.00), lip stain ($3.00), Maybelline discontinued eye tattoo pots ($3.00) and a various face and eye cream set.
I am all about the nail polish, of course. They had a better selection this year than they have had in the past, brands included L'Oreal Paris ($2.50), Maybelline Colour Show ($3.00), Lancome, and what I was hoping to pick up, Essie ($6.00)! They had a promo on Essie polishes and treatments, buy 5 get 1 free, not bad. They had some nice liking base treatments and cuticle moisturizers, however none of the polishes really wowed me. I either had them already, ones similar or just plain didn't like them. Such a shame!
So what did I end up getting... Unfortunately, this year I got nothing! The good news is that I can still visit the sale should I want to return before it ends at the end of the month.
Were you invited to the L'Oreal sale this year? What did you pick up?
