Into the Gloss is a beauty site that I read, and they posted that they were having a ridiculous beauty sale with the proceeds going to charity. So I was like why not? Let's go. It was at the Jane hotel which was all the way on the west side. Blerg. Ok, we're in NYC we know how to walk, so we'll walk.
I don't think the people who were working there knew what was going on. One girl was sitting on the couch near the make up with her drink. We didn't know if she was trapped there or not. It wasn't clear. But apparently she worked there and you paid her. Though she was a bit tipsy because she tried to give me back my change twice. I was like no girl, you already did. It's not even 9 yet and you're pretty much gone.
There were a lot of drug store brands there. And a few high end ones. You really had to be in the first group of people there and knew which table you wanted to go to and grab whatever you could, otherwise it was pretty much a wash up.
(these aren't my pics, these are pics I found online. I wasn't able to take pics because all I wanted to do was get out of there, i twas a crazy madhouse! but yeah you can see there was stuff for $1.Don't get mad if I didn't give you credit, again I found them online, and I'm not taking credit for it.)
This is the smashbox palette I got for $5. and the eyelashes were $1
And then afterwards we went to get these tiny donuts at the doughnuttery in Chelsea Market. Overall the day was not wasted. So if you're thinking of going, just be prepared to get there early, run in, know what you want, get it fast, and get out. You've been warned!
