A few weeks ago I went to Cheshire Oaks, which is a “Outlet Village” – ie. there’s a load of discount stores in one place. To be honest it was pretty rubbish because places like that always depends on the time of year and what the mainstream stores are getting rid off, plus, with there being so many sales on the high street, you don’t necessarily notice much of a discount.
So generally…it was a sucky day. However! I did manage to haul something from the CCO (Cosmetics Outlet Store). They always stock Estee Lauder brands (MAC, Bobbi Brown, Origins, Clinique etc.) from previous seasons. You can actually find some Limited Edition stuff there – stuff I thought were sell outs like MAC Wonder Woman etc. were all there.
To aid an all together shiteous day (it was a seriously crap day – we were booked to go to the nearby Aquarium but they ‘didn’t have our tickets’ plus I had a run in with some racist Chavs…not good) I picked up some items:
MAC Snowglobe Eyeshadow Palette in Warm and two Dazzleglasses – I love Dazzleglasses although they are really immature lip glosses. So sparkly.
The packaging of the Snowglobe palette is of course quite quite, quite funky, also super tacky and heavy. Hmm.
The colours are Winterscape, Magical Mist, Patina, Buckwheat, Gaelic Gold, Midnight Flurry (Left to right):
Hurmmm despite not being a big MAC fan I usually like the eyeshadows I buy from the, but this palette just felt hard and a bit weird. It’s cool, it’s warm, it’s cool, it’s warm. I think a few of the shades are cool rather than warm anyhoo.
The Dazzleglasses I bought on the whim. One of my favourite lip glosses EVER is Baby Sparks. She-Zam is a silvery sheer clear gloss with pink glitters. You got the look is a orange with tons of multisparkle. I like orange in the summer so that is what this colour is for!
I think the discount was around 25% – 30% – so it’s not exactly free but the discount is ok. Actually people need to keep me away from discount stores because I can’t resist a “bargain” even if it doesn’t work out to be one eventually!
Have you ever hauled stuff from past seasons?
