Haulage! SaleEvent.ca (Feb & Mar 2017)

Since I don’t have a car, it can be pretty hard for me to get to warehouse sales and discounters out in suburbia, which is why SaleEvent.ca is an online store I love to shop at for cheap nail polish and other makeup items. A lot of it is discontinued stuff, as well, so it’s a good source for harder-to-find products and shades.

I’ve also had nothing but positive experiences with the shop—with my most recent order, I experienced a technical browser error, and their customer service dealt with it superbly. My orders always come well-packed and the items are always in fine condition.

Here are my combined two most recent orders, from February and March, made partly because I found out that my favorite drugstore foundation (Revlon Nearly Naked in Nude) was discontinued last year and I wanted to stock up.

All prices are in CA$.

Haulage! SaleEvent.ca — Discount OPI, Revlon, Milani (October 2015)

I’m on a makeup low-buy, but this haul still stays within my month’s fun budget! It may look like a lot of product, but it was all on clearance and I ordered it from a site that’s very new to me.

A quick Googling of “toronto discount cosmetics” (I was trying to find out about a makeup warehouse I’d visited well over ten years ago) brought me to SaleEvent.ca (not affiliated), a local beauty warehouse that sells some of their products online. I figuratively jumped out of my seat with glee!

SaleEvent.ca has actual warehouse locations in Toronto, the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and Ottawa, but as I am without a car, I rarely venture off the subway line. Incidentally, I don’t think this was the same warehouse company I visited all those years ago: that store was downtown.

An additional visit to their Facebook page convinced me that that the site was legit, so I placed my first order. They offer free Canadian shipping on orders of $49+, and free US shipping on orders of $75+.
