I caught wind of this amazing warehouse clearance this Friday afternoon :-

sale flyer, heat warehouse

As you can see, this sale is only on for 3 days.  I was itching to go…but I had to persuade the Husband to take me there.  (I am a newbie to Melbourne and I only know how to drive to Westfield Shoppingtown and my workplace!)  I used my female manipulative powers and we got there at 8.05pm – 25 minutes before closing time.

The place was HEAVING!!  Women here, there and everywhere with gazillions of cosmetics at reduced prices – CoverGirl, Max Factor, Bourjois, Ulta, etc – from $2AUD to $15AUD.

What did I buy?  Check it out

make-up haul from heat warehouse sale

5 x nail polishes, 5 x lipsticks, 2 x mascaras, 1 x mineral foundation, 1 x blusher, 1 x eyeshadow, 1 x lipgloss, 1 x lip brush, 1 x sponge applicator, 1 x facial massager.  (Brands are CoverGirl, Max Factor, NYC, Ulta, essence and elite.)

For the grand total of $51AUD.  Bargain or what?

I’m definitely not a cosmetics brand snob and I will use drugstore to luxe products.  And hello, I love bargains!!!

Anyway, I won’t be keeping this all to myself.  I’m going to give some to my girlfriends…and also, I will be doing a giveaway next week featuring some of these products.  YAY!  I love doing giveaways because it’s better to give than to receive.  And I promise that I will make the rules plain and simple.  So please keep your eyes peeled for the giveaway next week.

Melbourne girlies, please go and check out this warehouse sale if you like cheap affordable drugstore brands and are prepared to browse with lots of people and then queue for a long time.  Props to the Husband for driving me there and for queueing up while I shopped around.

Have a lovely weekend!

      @Tines, He queued for 45 minutes before he got to the front…and then the checkout lady said that he was the first guy that she had served that day. He said he had to point out all that makeup was not for his private use, haha.

    Nice haul for such a great price. They never have cool sales like this in the US.
