I have not been going to Prestige Warehouse Sale for a while, the last visit was in 2008 which i spent $1.6k hauling mostly perfumes together with Givenchy and Paul & Joe Makeup and a nice staff helped me to carry my goodies to the main road to take a cab. I must say the prices this year is much cheaper compared to 2008 as some of the perfume i bought are now $29-$49 compared to $69-$79. Makeup and Skincare prices were about a couple of dollars cheaper now. As i still have lots of perfume from the previous sale, i hauled from the cheaper range on offer mainly Banana Republic, Gap and Mango to be used as air freshener as i dont fancy the smell of commercial ones.
For Paul & Joe, i purchased my favourite Treatment Peel Off Mask, Body Mask, Sparkles Collection Lipstick 065, Limited Edition Powder, Cat Vanity Case and Nail & Hand Care Kit. I also purchased Givenchy Blanc Parfait W4-L Masque Noir as there was only 1 box left and Givenchy Couture Makeup Palette Eyelet Edition.
I love Paul & Joe Treatment Peel-Off Mask with the signature Orange & Flora Scent and its leaves my skin so clean and silky smooth ! The fantastic thing is that this is a rather new product range from Paul & Joe and its still retailing at the counter at S$66, now its at an amazing price of S$20 !!! Its like getting 3 products for the price of 1 ! The Body Mask retails at S$63 so S$20 is an absolute steal too as its 200ml. Paul & Joe is the only counter brand that have a full body range that includes Body Mask. Love the refreshing orange, honeysuckle and floral scent and you definitely wont regret getting these 2 star products !
I only bought 1 Paul & Joe Lipstick as i have loads of lipsticks. This is from the Sparkles Collection #065, its a very pretty mauve pink and now only S$10 instead of S$39 when it was launched at the counter last year !
Paul & Joe Nail and Hand Cream Set is a gorgeous set that includes a nail protection coat that you can use as both top or base coat, a lovely handcream and a pair of butterfly motif gloves complete with a butterfly metal tin. Retailing at S$68, this is only S$30 a set so i bought 2.
Cat Vanity Case – i love to collect bags and pouches so i bought another 2 to store my Paul & Joe Makeup. The counter retail price was S$60 which is a bit steep for a vanity case but hey its S$25 now!
Givenchy Blanc Parfait W4-L Masque Noir and Givenchy Couture Makeup Palette Eyelet Edition
Givenchy Couture Makeup Palette All-In –One pouch includes Prisme Again ! Face Powder in Elegant beige, Prisme Again Eyes Purple Couture, Eye Fly in Black 11 and Pop Gloss Crystal in Rose Couture. Pretty practical colour kit, great for travelling or on the go.
Paul & Joe Fragrances, Mango, Banana Republic and Gap Perfumes.
My favourite perfume purchase was Paul & Joe Set from Christmas 2009 collection. It consists of a solid perfume, fragranced body lotion and fragranced body powder in a pretty purple drawstring pouch.
Banana Republic and Gap Perfumes
Banana Republic fragrances in Rosewood, Malachite and Black Walnut.
I would say its worth making a trip down for the warehouse sale as the perfumes are really really cheap. Compared to previous sales, its much more organized as Prestige now provides shopping baskets so its easier to shop around. A few huge fans were installed for better ventilation. Makeup and skincare, you need to queue and the staff will put your purchases in a ziplock bag and give you a number tag. While you are in the queue approaching the cashier, a Prestige staff will comeby and ask for your tag and give your shopping to double check before payment. Only grouse perhaps is there is only 2 cashier so you might have to wait some time to make payment during the peak hours. I went in the afternoon so it was a breeze to make payment. Enjoy hauling !
