By now, I hope all of you who received the Estee Lauder Companies Staff Sale tickets from Juniper’s Journal have gone for the beauty shopping spree of the year and found what they wanted. I arrived shortly after 6am since this year I was fortunate enough to be given VIP tickets so I knew I didn’t have to be there as early as previous years.
After queuing up for more than half an hour this morning, I was approached by reader Devika and we had a lovely chat. I was looking out for familiar faces in the queue but it is difficult to spot those I know as there were so many people all sitting down. Devika informed me that those right in front of her queue arrived at midnight and I find that remarkable as those at the front are arriving earlier and earlier.
I entered the ballroom just before 7am and the first brand I saw was Bobbi Brown. Since I was among the 1st batch in, there were many sets to be had ranging from eye palettes to shimmerbricks with the blending brush. There seemed to be more Bobbi Brown makeup this year than previous years.
Of course when it comes to makeup, MAC has the largest variety. I was fortunate to get 2 Archie’s Girls Collection pigments in the shades I wanted for RM30. I couldn’t believe my eyes, that is great value since pigments last a long, long time. I never finish any that I have.
My haul is very modest by comparison to the majority of fellow shoppers.
How was your shopping experience? I hope you will share what you bought as I am a busybody and nothing would please me more than to know what you all bought and was it a pleasant experience for you all today or was the crowd to much to handle? I was out of there by 8am. I get rather panicky when I am among a large crowd. I was standing quietly in a corner near a potted plant when a lady just plonked herself next to me and started to sort out her haul, that was the cue for my exit. As I left the room, the queue had only gotten longer!
