Found out about Suria Meriang Staff Sales through Fiona of Street-Love.net and she said, “I went there at 5:30am last year”. Say whaaaaaat??? Never come across my mind to go shopping as early as that. I have never been to this sales before but I heard a lot of how great the deals can be and I definitely would love to go for it! Pardon the low quality photos, I was just using my phone and it was quite dim at the Grand Ballroom of Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel.
Thanks Fiona (if you’re reading this)!!! We arrived about 6am-ish at the third row of the queue, holy cow. There is another row of VIPs which we aren’t sure how people could get those tickets and they entered to the sales about 20-30 minutes earlier. Any idea anyone?
What to expect from this sales?
Since there is so many people, stocks are really limited. Once I have entered the hall, I just grabbed whatever I was interested, put it in the bag (plastic bag was given) and go on with other brands. I happened to let go a few items that I thought it was not so worth it. Do bare in mind, because people get so impatient during the sales, they will knock or step on you without apologizing.
Some anxious shoppers screamed right when the doors are open making everyone stood up quickly and start moving. Look at the crowd, its crazy! Apparently some shoppers tried to cut our queue just because we were moving more on the left side and yes, they were trying to cut on the right. They didn’t make it so clear of their motive but I guess they get us when we got back at the center and start saying ‘cut queue’ repeatedly. These girls do have to learn some manners. First come first serve, this ain’t no wet market y’all! I forgot snap any photos inside because I was busy doing my roundings on what to purchase.
Brands that was offered during the sales was Bobbi Brown (makeups), MAC (makeups), Clinique (skincare, makeups & fragrances), Origins (skincares), DKNY (fragrances), Coach (fragrances), Tommy Hilfiger (fragrances), Aramis (fragrances), Estee Lauder (skincare, makeup & fragrances). I’m not a huge spender but I did picked up some items. Plus, because I have to allocate some expenses for a trip end of this month.
Bobbi Brown Cool Lilac Long-Wear Eye Collection
I believe this collection was last year’s. The reason I picked this is because I wanted to try their cleansing oil and gel liner. What makes this set much more worth it is that it comes with a dual-ended brush. This set is for MYR100.00 and let’s see closely onto each product.
Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Liner in Caviar Ink
Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Cool Lilac
Bobbi Brown Mini Dual-Ended Long-Wear Cream Shadow & Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush
Also, a card to redeem complimentary makeup lesson and personalized face chart with Bobbi Brown. I also took a set of four of MAC In Extra Dimension Eye Shadows for MYR100.00. It was manufactured in 2011 and each of the eye shadows retails at MYR85.00. The eye shadows I took here are weighed at 2grams/0.07oz each, there is another set of the same range of eye shadow at the same price but lighter in weight. Let’s see what shade that I have here.
MAC Extra Dimension in Lunar
MAC Extra Dimension in Grand Galaxy
MAC Extra Dimension in Rich Core
MAC Extra Dimension in Warm Thunder
I accidentally damaged the eye shadow on my own with my finger nails. Dang!
DKNY Be Delicious Love Paris Limited Edition (blue)
I bought this for my BF because his birthday is in May and although this is a chic perfume, I thought the scent is still suitable for him because the scent is very elegant and sophiscated. Hey, this perfume can be unisex, doesn’t have to be for women only. I bought this for MYR115.00 and wrapped it immediately, gave him on that evening when I see him. He didn’t want to open it until the next day.
I’m totally looking forward for next year’s sales, hopefully I can get another an extra ticket for my BFF because she’s crazy in love with Bobbi Brown. I wasn’t aware that Bobbi Brown joined the sale and I reckon that I might haul more next year too. Will see how it goes, anyone else went to the sales?
