I, by a complete fluke of luck, discovered that this weekend in montreal there was a warehouse sale for Annabelle and Marcelle cosmetics. This is a semi-annual sale (which i will store in my memory for november) and the prices are like stealing. All annabelle makeup is 1.50 and all marcelle makeup is 2.50. Those are amazing since annabelle retails for between 4.99 to 10.99 and marcelle cosmetics are a little higher at around 8-20.
I found out a bit late, the night before the last day of the sale so who knows how much was there on the first day, but there seemed to be plenty left when i got there on sunday afternoon. It was pretty basic, and i didn't have my camera to take pictures inside, but it was just a bunch of tables covered with cut open boxes and each box had a different product/color inside to separate them all. This is a limited edition summer colors eye shadow/bronzer compact called Ibiza from annabelle, a pink/bronze marbled blush from marcelle called summer chic (there are 2, as i bought one for my sister as well). and 2 lip glosses from annabelle in metro mango and vivid volume. To be honest, the packaging on these is complete rubbish, but they do feel nice, but not super pigmented more of a color wash.
This is the other marble blush (for my lucky sister) some of their mono eye shadows in a quad that i also picked up for my sister in the colors buff naked, so foxy, jazzberry (LE) and Ka-ching. Those are 4 smudgeliners in honey (golden at top), extra celestial, Wahine blue, and smokey blue, below that are 2 mineral eye dusts in quicksilver and sunkissed(both LE), a bronze/blush in bali bronze (LE) and a studio pigment in aurora (LE)
Also from the first picture (i didn't get a close up as my memory card was full) are a package of makeup remover cloths 15 count, i bought 20 of these packs because hey were 5 for 1.50, and 2 lipgloss pens from marcelle that were in morning dew and pink flash.
since i am curious i will be going over the prices i want to compare what i actually paid to what it is worth.
this list can't be perfect because some of the limited edition products i can not find the actual retail price of anymore so i wll estimate based on items that are still or sale in similar products.
marcelle summer chic x2 12.99
marcelle lip gloss pens x2 estimate 8.99 each
Annabelle volume lip gloss x2 8.50 each
annabelle monoshadows x4 4.25 each
annabelle bali bronze estimate 8.99
annabelle studio pigment 8.50
annabelle ibiza estimate 12.99
annabelle mineral pigments x2 8.50
annabelle smudgeliners x4 8.95
20 packages of 15 wipes (sold in 2 packs retail) x10 8.99
retail total= $251.14 before taxes
I paid 38.50 before taxes
