I then debated my plan of attack. What do I need? Shampoo, hair dye? What kind of makeup do I need? They do not always carry the same things on each sale. Last sale, I stocked up on hair dye, this sale, I stocked up on makeup. It all depends when you go and what they have. I then debated on when I should go. If I go on my lunch, there are less people. If I go right after work, there would be maybe less people. In the past, the huge crowd shows up after supper time. If I go Saturday, unless it is super early right when they open, I will have to wait, outside for about 45 minutes in the cold!
I decided since I need makeup. I had virtually no make up left and those counters take a while, to not risk being late for work after lunch, I will go Friday after work. I invited my niece along who likes to stock up on shampoos and conditioners. I think she really likes to come because she gets a kick out of watching me flip out over the makeup. I am really like a kid on Christmas!
|I just felt like I did a nice job on my makeup that morning that I would share here! Bad hair day but at least i had nice makeup for work|
We were lucky, we didn't have to wait in line in the cold. The inside was packed. Be prepared to squeeze in at the counters and people will run into you. People go crazy there! I sometimes refer to it as a mini mosh pit. I checked the Lancome counter but there wasn't much there. I realized I missed a counter because there were so many people there. They had my beloved BB cream. In stores, I pay $12.99 for this tiny bottle, they were $5.75 each. I stocked up on 6! There were no hair dye this time. I did see a few boxes when we walked in but they were not really the ones I like.
Needless to say, I got quite a good haul. I even bought my son shampoo. I saved lots of money and won't need to buy makeup or shampoos/conditioners for a while. I couldn't resist. Most of them were $2.00 a bottle! We were exhausted by the end of it but we decided to go eat at the Chinese buffet afterwards. We then proceeded to go to Target and Walmart.My niece helped me pick out my sister's gift.
|Even my son got shampoo!|

I also came across this video on my Facebook feed this morning. I thought it was pretty neat. It is about 100 years of beauty. This model is showcasing makeup/hairstyles though out the years. I love the 20's,30's,40's and 50's!
