Today I drove to the outlet malls to check out the CCO (Estee Lauder brands) and DF&CCO (Lancome brands). I was hoping to go to catch in on the Memorial Day sales but the idea of going to an outlet mall swarming with people was not my idea of a good time. I hoped that some of the sales would still be in place today and I lucked out at the Lancome branded outlet (the normal CCO almost never has sales aside from the meager 10% off on Black Friday).

$2.99 La Roche-Posay Gentle Cleansing Bar (retail $9, regular price at DF&CCO $7.20)
$2.99 Lancome Feuille D'or nail polish
$2.99 Lancome Color Design eyeshadow in Vue
$1.99 Ralph Lauren Wild EDT mini .25oz
Then at the CCO I went a little bit of neutral crazy. I picked up, Time & Space, Grand Entrance, Night Manoeuvres, Silverthorn and Magnetic Fields
All but the one with the tag showing were $10.25 - Time & Space was $10.00 -
And 2 more pigments for my happy pigment family: Gold Mode & Lark About
And one mineralize blush: Daft Pink

I clearly spent more than I really should but there was so much stock I couldn't help myself!

While I was there, I went ahead and swatched the pearl glide liners they had in stock (bankroll, molasses, fly by bleu (?), black russian and the reddish one) and don't kill me, but I don't know what the fuss is all about. Yes they were creamy, but they did not stay put. I swatched them on my hand, waited, blew on them, and rubbed and they were gone, well aside from the microglitter, that stuck around! Colors were gorgeous though.

Have you hauled anything lately? Did I do good?

OMG that's a great haul. I have & love all of those MAC e/s. You will love them too.

Maggie said...

OMG! Awesome haul, I need to get to a CCO stat. (Oh, the woes of not having a car!)

Great deals on those items in the first picture. I was just at the CCO for the Memorial Day weekend. No sales at the CCO but I did pick up some Mac products. I was about to pick up Daft Pick too!

Arianne said...

Oooh la la! Great haul! I expect some swatches. ;)

Great haul!

I was at the CCO the other day, I had to try really hard to not go crazy! I ended up getting a Rose pigment and some other stuff... ah I wanted more pigments but I must have self control!

Oh wow what an amazing haul! There isn't a CCO anywhere near me :(

@Aly: Yay! Gotta love pretty neutrals. =)

@Maggie: Aw. No one to drive you? =/

@Miss♥Nikka: I saw your post! Great stuff. Was totally tempted by the sets but I had to restrain myself! Another time perhaps.

@Arianne: Oh gosh, I'm awful at swatches. Are you sure? I bet they'd all look the same.

@Marie: I definitely know what you mean. There were others I didn't have but I really couldn't afford to go absolutely wild. Plus, they limit how many of a certain code you can get - not sure how it works though. My $100 cap just didn't feel like nearly enough!

@Lillian: =/ I always feel badly that you UK girls miss out on some of the deals we get in the US.
