MAC Warehouse HAUL + some issues there + MUCH MORE!!

I had a absolute blast with my best friend in NY! I don't get see her that much, so we always do a lot when we are together! oh AND boy do I have a story to tell you about the MAC warehouse sale!

SO YEAH..this is a long post, set aside a good 5 min if you want to read the problem we had at the warehouse sale..what a doozey!! lol

So I will start with my LOTD

Inglot 06 AMC Shine on lid
Inglot 379 Matte and 441 Pearl in Crease
Inglot 40 AMC Shine in Outer V
Inglot 352 Matte as a Highlight
Inglot 24 AMC Shine in the inner corner and lower lash line


Then we headed off! We left at 7:00 am and the warehouse opened at 8:00 am, but I read that there are always lines and to get there early. My best friend has a a little boy who is 3 years old. She had arranged to get a babysitter for him, but something happened to the babysitter last minute, so we had to take him with us.

My friend felt sooo bad about, but I soooo did not mind, but I know she probably wanted a day kid free.

So we get to warehouse and start to wait in line, witch is all the way out the door when we got there. The security guard there tell us that the baby can not go in the warehouse. We both were like, OK, but can he wait in line with us and then we can swap him off with each when we get in. He said nodded ok.
Once we got in, there were two other lines. One for our tickets and then one to get into the actual sale.

So before we even gave our tickets in, I asked the security who was accepting the tickets about the baby and to make sure it was ok if one of us went in and the other watched the baby and swapped off like that. He said, oh yeah, no problem, JUST make sure he does not go into the sale. He took our tickets and then we waited in the line to get in. Once we got up to the door, a manager approached us and said, WHOA, the baby can not be in here at all, not even to wait in line. I said, well I spoke to two security guards prior to this, just to avoid a problem like this and they said it was no problem. RIGHT AFTER I SAID THAT, the original security guard I spoke to outside, came up to me, pointed HIS FINGER AT ME and said, YOUR A LIAR! I told you he could not come in!! WHOA not come up to me like that! I was shocked!! You best believe I told him off! I said, DO NOT CALL ME A LIAR, YOU SAW US WAITING IN THE LINE THE WHOLE TIME!! We told you what our plan was and you nodded. HOW DARE YOU CALL ME A LIAR! At that point, my friend was like ok, I'll just wait in the car with him. I was like, oh no, you are going in to this, you waited in line with me and that is NOT RIGHT! So I talked to the manager and he agreed to let her right in after I was done and I then I could watch the baby in the car while she shopped. LIKE REALLY! OMG! What an experience that was! When she left, the women around us could believe how they acted and said they completely understand what it is like when you can not get child care because they are parents themselves and that they handled it so wrong. They were so worried about if they were going to let my friend back in. I explained to them that they would, BUT the manager overheard all that too and jumped in..all nice of course..and said, oh no, she is coming back, we just don't want the baby to get hurt..blah, blah, blah...I get it! I don't want the baby hurt either and that is why we were NOT going to let him into the sale! URGH! That experience was EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!! YOU HAVE NO IDEA! but it all worked out and we both got to go ON TO THE HAUL!!

I got the DKNY Red Delicious perfume and lotion set for $30, I am King Set for my boyfriend for $30, three Bobbie Brown Lip pencils + sharpener for $30 and the MAC Eye set for $20

Bobbie Brow Lip Crayon- Amazing formula- Naked Pink, Pink Raspberry, Sugar Blush

MAC Eye set- Violet Pigment, Micoviolent Fluidline, Zoomlash sample, small eyeliner brush and the cosmetic bag. I gave the mascara, bag and brush to my friend..I so do not need any more brushes or
The swatches are (top to bottom) Macroviolet fluidline, Violet pigment, and then Violet pigment on to of Macroviolet fluidline (I think this combo is so pretty!) 

I also grabbed the GRAB BAG at the end of the warehouse. It was $60, but it had a ton of full sized products, so I thought it would be fun to see what was in it. When I got to the register, they ended up only charging me $20 for it! I was so happy!! This is what came in the grab bag.

Full Size:
- Tom Ford lotion for men
- Mac of Summer eyeshadow
- Clinque Turnaround 8 week System
- Clinque Even Bette Skin Tone Corrector
- Grassroots Super Anti-Oxident Duo
- Estee Lauder Basil Dreams Perfume
- Clinique Step 1 Clarifying Lotion for Dry Skin
- Ojon Flexible Finishing Hair Spray
- Mac Super glass in Sweet Tart
- MAC Holiday Collection Lip glosses, with 5 Lip glosses!!
- Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss Stick in Mauve Mirage
- Two Estee Launder Eyeshadow
- Estee Lauder eyeshadow compact for Micheal Korrs Very Hollywood

PHEW! That is a lot of stuff for $20!! I told my friend to grab that grab bag to, but they tried to charge her $60 for it. So when we got back to her house I gave her all the Estee Lauder eye shadows, the MAC eyeshadow, and 3 out of the 5 MAC glosses. I have so many lip glosses and eyeshadow AND got such an amazing deal on the grab bag that I had no problems giving her that stuff. She is trying to build up her own collection, and I am more than happy to help her do that!!

Here are the swatches of the lip glosses I did keep:

Top to bottom: Estee Lauder Mauve Mirage, MAC Totally it, MAC Beaute, MAC Sweet Tart

Oh and I almost forgot..they gave out free gifts as you left..

Estee Lauder Nail polish in Black berry and trial size Clinque All About Eyes

All in all, everything worked out and we had a great time!


When we back to her house, I did her makeup. She is not comfortable with brights yet (which I totally get because I wasn't at first either) SO I gave her a nice neutral look.

Inglot 435 Pearl on Lid
Inglot 419 Pearl in Crease
Inglot 363 Outer V
Inglot 352 Matte Highlight
Inglot 06 AMC Shine in the inner corner and lower lash line
Bobbie Brown Lip Crayon in Naked Pink on the lips (she bought the set too!)
Inglot 29 on cheeks-Matte peach 

AND SOME random pics of us

Her son! Luv him..he is such a cutie!

We finished the day hanging out her house, we watched TRON, went to TARGET (so she can get the Sonia Kashuk Makeup Brush, then went a party at her friends house. Before I knew it, I was on the ferry back to CT :(

Sorry for the long post, but love sharing these things with you all!! I hope you enjoyed it!!

Wow, you got some really awesome things!...and Sorry you had to deal with such handled the situation really well though. Better than I think I would have.

Robyn said...

I love your Inglot look.

How bullshit about the baby. What did they think you were going to do, let you kid get mauled for the sake of some discounted perfume?! *shakes head* Awesome haul though, I'd be stoked to just get those 5 MAC glosses for $20!

MissBrittanyBoo said...

People can be so ignorant sometimes. I swear they need to feel like they have power. Awesome haul!

And what a cutie your friends son is! Love his curls :)

Staci said...

That sucks that they wouldn't let you in together :( I'm glad you both still got in, but it's always nicer shopping with your friends. Great products! I'm jealous of the sales.

the Honey B said...

that is an AMAZING haul you got! I cant believe you got away with that grab bag for only $20! I would have paid $60! The security and management of the sale sound like a nightmare but i am glad you got in and had fun. YOu are such a good friend!!! I bet your friend really appreciated all of that! I know i would!

Jessi M (Lacquered, Painted, Polished) said...

Aw, it sounds like you had a great time despite the BS from the security guard and stuff. I don't get why people have to act like that, if it was just that he misunderstood what you were asking why couldn't he just have said, "I guess I misunderstood what they said," instead of accusing you of lying?! I'm glad you were able to get a lot of nice things and spend the day with your friend. :)

Amalia J said...

wow what an ordeal!! You all look fabulous though, sorry you had to go through that!

DazzleGlam said...

The nerve of some people... If that happened to me I would've done that same thing. Some people have no integrity what so ever. It's amazing people like that can get jobs.

I know it was your friend that bought the brush set, but I've been eyeing it and was wondering what you thought of it..

Glad you got lots of goodies!! Thanks for the pics!

How lame that the security guy would challenge your character like that. And to come right up to your face and call you a liar? I would be so annoyed! I don't lie so if somebody were to call me a liar (especially when they KNOW I'm not), I think it would really hurt my feelings and then I'd get mad haha. You got a lot of great stuff though!

The Peach said...

Wow! What an ordeal! I probably would have been so pissed I would have said F-it and left! But what a score on the grab bag! Glad you got to spend some time with your friend too!

Mama Laura said...

What an ordeal! I can't believe you were treated that way! Glad it worked out in the end, though.
