Don't say we didn't warn you. Racked reporter Elena Adams just stopped by the Korean beauty sample sale to find this huge crush of people waiting to get in for $5 makeup and $10 skincare items. And it doesn't stop there—word on the inside is that it could take 45 minutes just to check out. If you're planning to head out of work early to try and beat the crowds, know that you probably won't be alone (and that you might not be able to grab any of those $1 masks, either—a tipster said that they're no longer available, unless restocking happens). See time and location details in the Dealfeed below.
