Beauty Sale Loot: Guerlain Cosmetics

At least every quarter, Luxasia, a distributor of high-end perfumes and cosmetics, holds a sale in various parts of Metro Manila. For several years now, my friend L and I anticipate Luxasia's booth at the lobby of the Pacific Star Building in Makati. On various occasions, I got Shiseido liquid and powder foundation and tinted moisturizer at 40 to 60% off. Last December, the hubby and I chanced upon their annual warehouse sale at the FMF Compound along Pioneer in Mandaluyong. Even he didn't go home empty-handed. Last summer, L and I chanced upon them at a bazaar in World Trade Center and I scored Guerlain Kiss Kiss lipsticks for 500 bucks.

And so when I found out about this Pre-Christmas Warehouse Sale last Thursday, L and I didn't hesitate and trooped over to Pioneer. We were there at around 3 pm and to our utter shock, some of the sales assistants whom we knew by faces informed us that a number of items were immediately sold out earlier that day. Buyers lined up outside that morning and hauled off the most coveted scents and shades. Nonetheless, I wasn't disappointed with what I got:

"If there were a dictionary devoted to beauty, listed under the word 'classic' you'd find Guerlain. This purveyor of luxury fragrance, makeup, and skincare has consistently defined—and redefined—our standards of beauty for over 175 years. Since 1828, Guerlain has guided us through a remarkable series of firsts, including industry standards like lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, and scientifically based skincare. And that's just the beginning: Their fragrance house has created over 700 perfumes, several of which are considered masterpieces. An enduring symbol of style and innovation, it's nearly impossible to imagine life before lipstick—or Guerlain." (source: Sephora)
