MAC Warehouse Sale - June 2010

So I attended the Mac/Estee Lauder Warehouse sale on the last day, which was the Sunday, with PN and a friend. (For those of you who have never heard of this, I have a video on it that you can watch by clicking here) The sale started at 9am that day, and we were in line by 8. It was really crappy/rainy weather, so there were probably only about 15 people ahead of us, and they opened up the building early so we wouldn't have to wait outside in the rain. Of course, by the time the sale started, the line was wound up in a quadruple S and was out the door. I actually spent quite a lot this time around, I really don't know what happened. :( My poor wallet. Now on to the haul! Get ready for a shitload of photos..

Eye products:








Smokes and Mirrors Holiday 2009 Palette

Swatches with non-flash and flash:




L to R: Bell-Bottom Blue, Gold Mode, Perky, Material Gold, Femme Fi (VP), Copperplate (M2), Of Summer(S)

Bell-Bottom Blue is a very sparkly, blue with a hint of purple, while Gold Mode is exactly that -- gold. Perky looks more coral in the pot, but swatches a true pink. Material Gold is a very sheer gold. Femme Fi is a shimmery white gold. Copperplate looks more brown in the pan, but swatches like more of a taupe (brown/gray). Of Summer is a lilac colour with a hint of pink undertone, and of course the palette doesn't need swatching because I'm sure there are 2390572348957 photos out there.

Face products:




Swatches with non-flash and flash:




L to R: Ladyblush, Improvise, Summer Rose, Medium Shimmer, Medium Natural

Ladyblush looks like a warm, medium pink in the pan, but swatches very cool-toned. Improvise is a shimmery coral, and Summer Rose is a sheer mauve (swatched heavily in this picture). The MSF shimmer side is very pigmented, while the natural was quite sheer (also swatched heavily).

Lip products:




Swatches with non-flash and flash:




L to R: Goldyrocks, Crosswire, Ever So Rich, Fierce & Fabulous, She-Boom!

Goldyrocks is a very sheer yellow with pink, purple and silver glitter (in my opinion). Crosswire a very warm strawberry colour, while Ever so Rich is a pale pink with a hint of purple in it. Fierce & Fabulous and She-Boom! are very similar in colour, a hot magenta, but F&F has more shimmer.

Charity package:


Swatches with non-flash and flash:



L to R: Lustrewhite, Pret-a-Papier, Taupe, Brill(S)

Lustrewhite is a clear gloss with multi-coloured sparkles, and Pret-a-Papier is a dark reddish-brown. Taupe is exactly that, and Brill is a frosty mint-green.

Miscellaneous:

Clockwise from bottom left: Duo sharpener, #20 lashes, Moisturelush Cream, Secret Crush See-Thru Lip Colour x 2, Danger Zone Eyeshadow, Sweet William Blushcreme Pearl x 2

These won't be swatched because it's either unnecessary, gifts, or future prizes.

This post is ginormous so I end it with a simple 'the end.'
