Pleasant Surprise Purchase #1:
Lush-N-Lilac Lip Liner (3), this liner was either LE or discounted, but to my surprise they store had three left and I brought them all.

Pleasant Surprise Purchase #2:
Nail Polish in $$$ Yes and Lucky Number and Surprise Me lipstick. The NY MAC Pro store released their holiday items about 2 weeks early.

Estee Lauder Warehouse Sale (NY Haul Part 1)

Over the weekend, my best friend and I went to the Estee Lauder Warehouse Sales. This event is not open to the general public, an invitation is required for entry.

At 6am, we headed for New York. The drive from Philly wasn't too bad. I set the cruise controls and relaxed on the journey up the NJ Turnpike.

Once we arrived at the location, we parked and went inside. We presented our tickets along with our id's. We grabed a box (used for our finds) and headed in.

My first stop, the MAC eye shadow bin. This was a metal bin filled with pre-packaged MAC eye shadows; there were three in each pack for $10.00. Next, I found myself at a section of the warehouse that contained all types of Bobbi Brown makeup cases; I picked up a brush box for %5.00. I then headed arounfd the corner and picked up a Sean John Fragrance gift set for $45.00. My last stops was a table filled with items from the MAC Couture Collection and MAC brushes. . I got a MAC 182 brush from the Couture Collection for $15.00 and Magnificient Lipgloss from the Couture Collection for $6.50. I also picked up 2 MAC 187 brushes for $20.00 each.

Here's some pictures-
