What I Bought – L’Oreal Warehouse Sale

Posted by danielle on October 7th, 2012. Filed under: I Buy Things, Recent Posts.

On Saturday, a friend invited me to join her at a L’Oreal warehouse sale. The sale was by invite only, and she’d scored passes though her employer, a fancy downtown investment firm.

There were some really great deals to be had, unfortunately they weren’t things I was looking for though. Despite that, I did have a pretty full basket at one point, but when the moment of truth arrived at the front of the warehouse, I doubled back to return most of it before checking out.

The few items that made the cut included: a Lancome eyeshadow compact, as well as a fun, sparkly Maybelline quad. I also picked up a few jars of nail polish and an eyeliner and highlighter combination, that according to the package, was made specifically for brown eyes. Finally, I bought some mascara, because I was almost out.

Overall, I spent considerably less than I’d intended. I’m actually really proud of myself for showing such restraint. I managed to get a few nice things without breaking the bank. These sales can be a bit of a trap for even the most informed consumer and it’s so easy to get caught up in the frenzy.
