If you've never been to a Cosmetics Company Outlet (CCO) and you're a cosmetics junkie like me...well wait, if you're reading this blog I shouldn't have to defend my obsession to you because guess what? You're one too! As I was saying, if you've never been to one, see if there are any located near you. Or the next time you take a trip, do a little checking and perhaps you can locate one in your travels. They carry many, many lines produced by Estee Lauder and the prices are usually 30-40% off of retail. I've had pretty good luck finding some of my favorite MAC limited edition eye shadows and lipglasses/lipsticks, along with lots of other great products at great prices. They change their stock frequently and some locations are better than others when it comes to the quantity on hand of certain brands. If you go to Outletbound.com and type in 'cosmetics company store' or 'estee lauder' in the store locater, you'll find all of their locations. These are some of the polishes that I got for $7.00 each. I'm not a huge MAC polish fan, although I must admit, their formulation is improving. I needed 3 coats on all of these, but they do come out with some unique colors every now and again. I'll be posting the other 3 colors I got later this week, along with another post highlighting some more easy to find greens for your St. Patty's Day manicure, so check back soon!


  1. I love Fireball! It really glows. Haven't been to a CCO in years. I know there is one about 2 and a half hours away. Maybe someday I will go again. Now that I am a Mac nut it would be worth going.

  2. Ooooo, Violet Femme is calling my name!! Very pretty. I have never heard of CCO. I will have to check and see if there is one around where I live. Thanks for the info :)

  3. Lucy~get in the car and go! Now!
    Brooke~yes, check the link to see if there's one near you!
