Estée Lauder Staff Sale 2015 Report and Haul

One of the most anticipated yearly event has got to be the one and only Estée Lauder Staff Sale, which I like to call it as the mother of warehouse sale. It is beyond just the massive discount offerings at the sale. To me it is the girly get-together day for me and my friends. It was fun!

I didn’t thought of writing about this year’s sale due to various reasons but since I skipped last year, I thought I might as well note down what went down this year for reference purposes. This may also serve as a ‘guide’ for you if it’s your first time on what to expect and prepare for the sale as I do receive loads of emails, PMs on Facebook on what to expect at the sale. It’s tiring to repeat again and again as I’ve written about it at this link as well.

Without further ado, here’s Estée Lauder Staff Sale for 2015!

Estée Lauder Staff Sale 2015 Summary
Every year I managed to secure a few tickets. I do not ask for a lot, usually just 4 tickets to prevent wastage. I know there are tons of you wondering how to get the ticket and some of you have been bothering or rather stressing and harassing me over emails and PMs on Facebook in giving you tickets. Yes. Not asking IF I have extra BUT demanding for it. First of all, I DO NOT WORK for Estée Lauder Malaysia Sdn Bhd. I too have to ask for tickets myself and I suggest you try it too. How? If you are a regular customers of any brands under the company, I believe you will have one BA (beauty advisor) that is particularly close with you. Ask from him/her! If he/she have extra, he/she will give you. However, no promise. It’s totally up to him/her if they want to give you. I remember my first year tickets was from a BA working in MAC. Anything is impossible if you try to ask. So please stop harassing me 🙂

MAC Paint Pot: 4 reasons why you need it in your life

I’ve been wanting to get MAC Paint Pot ever since I heard about it from various Youtube beauty gurus. Two of the most mentioned Paint Pot is Painterly and Soft Ochre, which unfortunately is not the two that I’m about to talk about today. I knew I would be going to the annual Estée Lauder warehouse sales so I hold on to my purchase at the store, hoping MAC would throw in a few pots at the sale event. I made a beeline to MAC right after stopping by Bobbi Brown. I was right alright. MAC did indeed had a box of Paint Pot on clearance. I managed to take my sweet time choosing the right pack with the right shade for me and so I went home with MAC Paint Pot Bare Study and Layin’ Low.

The reason why I chose this duo is because Bare Study is the lightest shade available but unfortunately it was paired in a pack with Layin’ Low. That’s how it is at warehouse sales. You don’t get the best of both world. All these while I know these pots as “Paint Pot” but Layin’ Low is labeled under Pro Longwear Paint Pot. I took a quick glance at MAC website and Paint Pot is now referred as Pro Longwear Paint Pot. Well, I’m just going to call these Paint Pot 😀

Suria Meriang Staff Sale 2013 Haul

I found out end of last week (12th Apr) that this year’s Suria Meriang Staff Sales is happening on the 20th April 2013 and I haven’t get any pass yet! I have only a week to get my pass and get a partner in crime. Quickly I sent an email to someone I know in Estee Lauder. She replied immediately, cc-ed the PR girl and told her to send me 6 passes. By Monday (15th Apr) I still haven’t heard from the PR and I dropped her an email telling her I can pick up those passes as I know they will all be busy preparing for the sales. You know what? The courier reached me in the afternoon on the same day. That was fast!

This year I re-invited my last year sales partner, Chin Ching but she is in India and her plane home is on Saturday itself. Her sister who is a reader of the blog doesn’t have anything to buy so she is not interested. Last year both the sisters were so sweet that they wanted to send me something as a token of appreciation which I turned down. I had a good time shopping with Chin Ching and they owe me nothing. Nonetheless I’m happy with their kind thoughts. No one actually do that to me. Normally they would just ignore me after that.

MAC Tips

Tips: How to Revive Hardened Gel Eyeliner

I used to avoid gel eyeliner as it’s troublesome to use and you really need to be good to use it. I’m nothing near to good when I first started with eyeliner even with liquid. I only got hooked to gel eyeliner after all liquid eyeliner smudge on me due to my eye’s tearing issue. After being persuaded by a friend then only I venture to gel. I did some research on how to use gel eyeliner and let’s just say since then I never look back. Gel eyeliner are much more natural-looking, way more easier to draw (if you know the trick) and staying power is far better. However there’s always a down side. Less than a month upon opening my new pot, the gel hardened. I tried a simple trick to revive hardened gel eyeliner which work perfectly. Here’s what I’ve been practising to revive my pot of hardened gel eyeliner and hope it benefited you too. It’s really simple.

All you need is a hair dryer and of course your hardened gel eyeliner.

Review: Loving & Hating MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural #Medium

Almost everyone I know own something from MAC. I don’t walk in to MAC previously and I’ve mentioned it in this post before. But my itchy hand just gotta get something from MAC and I came home with 3 new products back in August. I’ve always wanted to purchase their compact powder and here it is!

I was recommended Mineralize Skinfinish Natural #Medium (RM115) instead of Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation as it’s more natural coverage and it’s not cakey.

Let’s talk about the packaging. Nothing to shout about on the typical usual box packaging of MAC.

Review: MAC Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel #Ash Violet

If you ask a makeup artist which is the best gel eye liner, they’ll tell you MAC Fluidline. If you ask your friend which is the best gel eye liner, she’ll definitely tell you it’s MAC Fluidline. If you google, I believe the search result will only be MAC Fluidline. That’s exactly what happen to me. I sucks at drawing eye liner. Pencil is great but I tend to sharpen it a lot and it smudge. Liquid is easy and great too but tricky for a beginner like me. With Gel eye liner you need to work quicker. Otherwise when it dries up it’s harder to blend. Not only I know nuts about drawing eye liner, I have shaky hand and happiness tears problem. When I go HAHAHA while talking to a friend…tears will start gathering at the corner of my eyes. How weird is that? I’m laughing and I’m also crying. LOL!!

I’ve been holding on the purchase of MAC Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel as I wanted to get it from Suria Meriang Staff Sale. My wish came true as I managed to get it from the sales but it’s not black. Works for me!

MAC Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel #Ash Violet is a deep dark purple color. The one I have doesn’t come with a mini 209 SE brush. I got the brush from another set which I’m using to apply Ash Violet.


The pot is made from glass. It’s small so it’s pretty handy to put inside the smallest handbag for mid-day touch up. The amount of product is only 3g. I’m already making a small dent in the pot. I foresee myself finishing this and even getting the black one from Bobo; my friend at MAC Sunway Pyramid!
