Cosmetics Company Outlet Goodies

A couple of weeks ago I headed to my local CCO to take a peek and I picked up a few items.  For those who do not know what CCO is...well, it's one of the happiest places on earth!  HA!!  No seriously, it is! 

CCO stands for Cosmetics Company Outlet and there are several throughout the country.  I don't know of any outside the US but don't quote me on that.  At CCO's, you can purchase discounted (at least 30% off) high end brands such as MAC, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, etc.  Most of the items are surplus and/or discontinued items and they are genuine products.  It's great!! 

Here are a couple links to where you can find your local CCO: Cosmetics Company Outlet Stores and  MallSeeker .  Now, I don't think this is 100% accurate.  The CCO that I go to in Auburn Hills, MI is not listed in either of these lists.  You can definitely use this as a guide though. 

On to my goodies!  I only picked up 3 items.  I will do swatches and a look using them in another post.   I got 2 eyeshadows - Fashion and Love Lace and 1 Mineralized Blush - Buddy Up

Each eyeshadow was $10.25 and the blush was $16.25.  You gotta love the prices!  Normally MAC shadows are $14.50 in the pot and Mineralized blushes are between $21-$23.  Not too shabby, huh?

Well, I gotta youngest rugrat needs to be tucked in!!
