BudgetConsumer – Sasa Factory Outlet, Sungei Wang Plaza

Sasa Factory Outlet!
I was killing time waiting for my favourite nail polish supply shop to open when I saw the sign “Sasa Factory Outlet”.  I never knew that Sasa had a factory outlet!  I had to go in to investigate. 

Bad news first.  Despite the signs saying “Urban discount store” and “Factory outlet price”, the whole store is not a factory outlet.  About half the store carries normal-priced merchandise like any other Sasa.  More bad news:  most of the discounted goods are nearing their expiry dates. 

The good news is that the discounts are up to 70%.  I didn’t look at fragrances carefully enough but they were marked at flat prices (still at least MYR150 though).  There were a few testers available for makeup as well. 

What I spotted, from memory (I couldn’t take any spy pictures because the famous Sasa sales assistant hovering is not discounted in the factory outlet):  
  • Pupa pencil eyeliners (I assume they are the Pupa Multiply Triple-Purpose Eye Pencils) mostly in brighter colours.  Expiry date: December 2015.  Price: MYR15. 
  • Pupa blushes and eyeshadows (not that many)
  • ArtDeco eyeshadow singles, 3 for MYR12, expiring in December 2015
  • A few ArtDeco foundations and loose powders at 70% off (not worth it, in my opinion)
  • BeautyTalk whitening mask MYR 1 each (I think).  Only 1 piece per package. 
  • Giovanni hair and body travel kits MYR10 each.  Some expire in September 2015, some in December 2015.  Each kit has shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion. 
  • A lot of Swiss Rituel stuff
  • A few random things like eyelash curlers, exfoliating gloves etc.  
So what did I get?  I was very tempted to get the Pupa eyeliners but decided against it as I probably won’t use them.  I would’ve gotten them if they were cheaper though!  I ended up getting 2 Giovanni travel kits as I already use Giovanni products and the small sizes mean that I should be able to use them up quickly.

In conclusion, I don’t think that you should go all the way to Sungei Wang Plaza just to visit the Sasa Factory Outlet.  However, if you are already planning a visit to Sungei Wang Plaza, you might want to stop by to check the store out.  Do remember to check the expiry dates of the products before you buy!
