Melody's Makeup Outlet Partay!


Melody's Makeup Outlet
11 South 2nd St.
Alhambra, CA 91801
(626) 281-7707
(Tell them Vanessa from NessasaryMakeup sent ya to get yourself a discount!)

They have discounted items from well-known brands: MAC, Too-Faced, Smashbox, Shiseido, Shu Uemura, and more!

This past saturday, Melody's Makeup Outlet in Alhambra was fully staffed gearing to open their doors for the freebies they were giving out (which was NYX cosmetics and some false eyelashes), I went there and met up with Anne and met Miss Jaclyn Rose for the first time! I have known this girl online for a little over a year via MySpace, and we finally met! It was a true pleasure meeting her, she is so cute and super sweet in person!

The place was packed and there were so many people checking out the goods. I was being good since I am on a no-buy until August 1st because I am trying to discipline myself to be "good", and so far so good! Since I dropped $430 on the BF's new iPhone 3G (had to pay more to break his contract), that I was trying to recover by not buying anything I don't need. So essentially, I chatted with Anne and Jaclyn while THEY shopped, but actually walked out with NOTHING (shocker!). Even the BF didn't believe me and did a quick bag check to see if I tried to hide something in my purse, LOL.

We took a pic with the owners, of course who are so nice and now good friends and it was overall a pretty fun night! Parking was super hard to find since there was also a fair going on, but we managed to find a spot. Afterwards, we ALL went to have dinner at Noodle Planet (or Noodle World) with Anne, her BF, my BF, and Jaclyn. She wasn't the 5th wheel since she was MY date, I made my BF be the 5th wheel, LOL.

We had a lot of fun having girl chat, getting to know her and her family, her adorable boys, and just random things. We exchanged numbers and you can bet we are slowly forming a beauty blog clique! We will definitely hang out again!

Group pic! Did I feel like a ginormous giant? Yes. :)

that is so cool that you actually befriended the owner xD

i think there will be thousands of NessasaryMakeup readers floggin' to that shop (and Anne's too) LOL.

well done on resisting! I'm also on no-makeup buy too for indefinitely, i dont know how long i'll last!

I think it's very sweet of you to sacrifice your love of makeup for your bf's iphone! lol. he'll have to sacrifice something in return eh? ;)

I am jealous that there is a jewel of a shop like this and not near me! I'm on the hunt for something within the Seattle area. The closest CCO is in Marysville which is about a 45 min drive away from me. This looked like a fun event and hopefully the next time I'm down there, I'll be able to stop by!


christy. said...

Aya said...

You all look so pretty! I wish I could hang out too ;) Are you gonna go back to get anything?

Fabu-less Beauty said...

I have to check out this place...once my no-buy is over!

eBeautyBlog said...

wow, you're so tall!! That's so cool that you gals actually meet and befriend in real life. I wish I could meet you gals in person one day. You all seem so fun and down to earth!

Emilee @ GMM said...

Cool! I'll have to stop by and take a look sometime.
