Willing to travel for a good beauty deal? Then mark your calendars for Saturday, June 13th, because that's when Estée Lauder's next warehouse sale is scheduled at its Long Island facility in the town of Melville. The good news is that Mizhattan has the details on how to get into this typically private sale, which has huge discounts on products from the myriad brands in this beauty giant's stable—Clinique, La Mer, Tom Ford, M.A.C., Bobbi Brown, and Aerin are just some of the names that could appear alongside the main line.
The bad news? This is a serious trip. You'll spend an hour on the train from Penn Station, plus endure a bus ride and some walking, too. And you'll want to get there well before the 3:30pm closing time, since previous iterations of this sale have had long lines. Your best bet would be to start cozying up to that friend with a car (offering to buy her morning coffee and a lipstick wouldn't hurt, either).
