Set up: The Stila, Tocca, and Dr. Jart sample sale was a truly pleasant shopping experience! From the extremely organized table displays to the plethora of different kinds of colors, this sample sale hit the “beauty” jackpot! All of the tables were perfectly categorized by both brand and product. All of the items were laid out nicely and were easy to identify. There were fantastic aesthetics around the room, that lit up the entire space. The sample sale was also not too crowded, which made it enjoyable to shop. It was easy to find a specific brand or product that you are looking for, and the staff was also VERY nice and helpful! There were around 2-3 staff members behind each of the tables, and they were more than happy to answer questions.
Merchandise and pricing: There was A LOT of merchandise. It looked as if all of the products were high in stock, and not going to run out anytime soon. Also, all of the products looked very high in quality, and brand new. From sparkly eye shadow to the best scented candles, this sample sale had it all. As far as pricing goes, everything was reasonably priced. For Artis: the elite smoke collection did not exceed $30, the Brushcraft collection ranged from $9-$14, the Elite Mirror collection ranged from $18-$180, and the Fluenta collection ranged from $20-$225. Dr. Jart prices ranged from $1-$28. Now onto Stila: Their prices ranged from $4 to $15; Sponges were $4, concealer and lip coating $5, liquid lip, eye shadow, and lip coating $8, and the brow pencil $9. Lastly, Tocca had A LOT of candles that smelled terrific. Each candle was $18. Tocca had candle scents such as vanilla jasmine, grapefruit melon, and patchouli amber. Tocca also had a ton of different body creams- they had a few tables that were ONLY for the creams! Tocca also had AMAZING options for holiday gifts, such as a 3-in-one set that had creams and fragrances inside. This set was originally $38, and was now $15. The ONLY negative side about this sale was that it was rather difficult to identify the prices of the products. Not every table had the prices written on them, so that led to a lot of customers having to ask for help. There were signs on the wall that said the categories and prices, but it was still rather hard to identify which product went with what category on the list.
Rating: 9/10. There were a lot of beautiful products, and everything was reasonably priced. They had a variety of great options and even had holiday gifts for both friends and family. It is definitely worth going!
