MAC Cosmetics and Estee Lauder Warehouse Sale: March 5 – 7, 2010!


rsz_mediahp_fromourlips001

The MAC Cosmetics/Estee Lauder Warehouse Sale is happening again, this time March 5-7, 2010. This takes place at the Markham Fairgrounds, in Ontario.

Tickets are only available for employees and their invited guests. I know this sale is a hot hot ticket every time it’s on and many people look for tickets. These sales run every 4 months or so, in March, June, September & December. Please note, these tickets are not available by going to a MAC store or counter and asking for tickets, invitations are only available to employees. Your best bet would be to make friends with a makeup artist, if they have extra invites, it is up to them whether they share them or not.

*** Smartcanucks does NOT have tickets to give out/sell, this blog post is meant for information only and for discussion. If you want tickets, please check Craigslist and Kijiji. Please do not post personal information in the comments.

    That almost looks like Lady Gaga in the ad.

  2. NittyGritty says:

    I’m pretty sure that is Cindy Lauper and Lady GaGa, it’s a promo pic for some work they have done together. These pictures often have nothing to do with the topics. I work for a company that pops up on here often and none of the pictures are endorsed by the company!

    • Justine says:

      The Cindy Lauper and Lady Gaga pic is from the new viva glam lipsticks, MAC lovers would know this. There are new lipsticks out now, a red for lauper and barbie pink for gaga. All proceeds (100% of sales) go towards the MAC aids fun. This image is all over the internet.

      I don’t see how this picture has “nothing to do with the topic”… it’s the latest collection from MAC.

    • Justine says:

      NittyGritty – if you have a problem with pictures popping up by your company, you can take it up with the admin of this website.

  3. bargain_hunter_lola says:

    Justine – thanks for all your hardwork keeping us up to date with MAC promo’s and shipping codes. I know I’m not the only one that appreciates it! Thanks!

    NittyGritty – if you visit MAC’s website and go to collections, you will see the Viva Glam collection (and the pic) of Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga along with their respective Viva Glam lipsticks (named after them). The blog picture has everything to do with MAC since they are the current spokespeople for a very popular MAC product. HTH

  4. Jessica_25 says:

    MAC has been using many different celebrities in their adds to promote new products and the Viva Glam Collection for quite a while now. It is always on many of MAC’S advertising and on their website so it would in fact have to be endorsed by MAC.

    Justine – Thanks for posting anything ans everything to do with MAC! :)

  6. caramelle says:

    hey ash bash, can you please send me the ticket??? contact me at wafa47 at hotmail dot com

  7. tracy says:

    I had never had a chance to this warehouse sale.. I have saw this ware house sale since 2007 but never been. Erm.. can any1 bring me?

  8. Cheriese says:

    Hello I am looking for tickets for any of the days and would greatly appreciate if anyone could send some my way… THNAKS!

  9. NittyGritty says:

    WoW ladies! I did not EVER specifically say this is NOT an endorsed photo. I simply stated often that is the scenario not specifically that it was this time. I have NO issues with you using unsponsored photos it makes the posts more interesting I was simply stating an observation no need to jump down my throat about it.

    Let’s all act like the adults we are and play nice!

  10. Sunshine says:

    Hi Justine,

    I heard last year there was some trouble with fake tickets being sold online. I found someone on Kijiji who will sell me a pair of tickets for Saturday. Could you advise what to look for so I know they are genuine tickets?

    Thanks in advance!

  11. eleventhOfapril says:

    @Sunshine – i just got my tickets today for Saturday and Sunday. Saturday one is a lavender color and Sunday is a yellow ticket. They should have a “EL” sticker seal on it. Without that seal, it would be invalid or fake. It also has a serial number beside the address map in RED. I guess also make sure you check the date printed on them.

    TO ALL who asked for a ticket: I forwarded your emails to a ticket holder who contacted me if I wanted tickets but I already got some myself so, check your emails and you might be a lucky one ! The pick up is in MARKHAM. Hope this helps !!!

    eleventhOfapril – thanks for the info, I think that helps a lot of people. There are probably fakes going around too, you guys gotta be careful.

  14. SuzieQ says:

    @eleventhOfapril

    Thank you for the info…

    I am dying to get a ticket! I will beg, borrow or steal!!! lol… Let me know what I have to do!

  15. eleventhOfapril says:

    Oops SuzieQ. I hope I didn’t make it unclear. I am not the one who has extra tickets. I was able to get 5 tickets from someone who was kind enough to respond to me first !!! Unfortunately, I have the other 4 tickets sold to my friends already.

    Sorry ladies :( Keep looking on kijiji or craigslist or anywhere about mac warehouse sale discussions. POST an ad of your request on kijiji.

    Gosh, I’ve never been to any of these events but it must be pretty
    good from what I’m seeing here!
    So how much cheeper do you actually get your purchases?

  25. momof3 says:

    I don’t understand why people are selling these tickets!!!
    They are given to employees for free!!!!!!!!1
    Why not pass on the joy of shopping to others and feel good that you are making someone happy!

  26. Julie says:

    Mine have gone now. Thanks

  27. Julie says:

    Oh yeah, and I didn’t sell mine, I gave them away.

  28. Noreen says:

    i went to this sale last spring (a friend gets tics at her company) and it was truly amazing. the prices are crazy low and they don’t put out the cheap, passed over stuff. it’s all current merch. i did my Christmas/birthday shopping for the year. bypass the first room with the perfume boxed sets (lots of those, but you might be into that) and get to the last room filled with lipsticks, gloss, nail polish, foundations, eyeshadows. the lot. I spent about $250 but easily would have spend $600-700 if it was regular price.

    • Justine says:

      if anyone happens to go, can you pick me up some stuff, I’ll totally pay you for it. If you you’d like to arrange something pm me on smartcanucks please!

  29. Donna P says:

  33. Comparing the Abbyy solutions to the rest of the market, it’s great to see what others think about the assorted competitors. Do you plan on doing a side-by-side matchup?

  34. danielle says:

  37. lulu says:

    the tickets are now gone. thanks for the emails.

  38. jubjub says:

    How much are you willing to pay for the tickets?

  39. danielle says:

    why are people charging so much….they were free $15.00 okay but why $35-50 each….i think that is so wrong..Karma will come back to those!!
    Just think it is unfair…sometimes in life when you give good u get it back…
    IF i had i won’t charge..i will just let someone have a go shop until they drop.
    I am a single mom and won’t spend $35.00 for a ticket someone got FREE.
    that money buys food for my boys.
    I hope i can find 1 ticket for $15.00 so i can treat myself to something new…..that’s my thougts…Good luck ladies…maybe we will get lucky!!

  40. Viv says:

    How long is the line to get into this sale? If I want to get in at 9am, what time should I be there?

  41. Jiya Jiya says:

    I have two Firdays ticket at very cheap… pick up in Scarborough. Sale ends at 8pm so still alot of time to go.

  42. Becca says:

    Just curious as to how good the sales actually are as to warrant paying for a ticket…

    • Justine says:

      becca – sales are really good, compared to cco prices in the states. I have never been, but I want loads of girls do their hauls from this on youtube and it’s pretty incredible.

  54. poohbear2973 says:

    so was the sale worth going to?
    did anyone get any good deals?

  55. icy says:

    I went there this morning, most of the GOOD stuff were gone already.
    There were a lot of MAC cosmetics though… like

    eye-shadow: 1 colour costs 9 buck
    DUO eye-shadow $12
    Lip-gloss and Lip stick cost $10 (buy one get one free)
    MAC brushes set costs $30.
    Perfumes were cheap too.

    The must have item was the MAC donation gift set, $5 each
    1 eye-pencil
    1 lip stick
    1 blush
    1 eye-shadow

    It was a great shopping experience, as the lineup wasn’t really bad, things are really well organized. The best thing was, they gave-away free gift at the exit!!! I got a MAC glow lotion!
