I visited the Livingston Designer Retail Outlet a couple of weeks ago and was incredibly excited to see that there is now a ‘Cosmetic Company Store’ there!!! If you live in the USA, you may have seen The Cosmetic Company Stores. This store is the first of its kind in Scotland (yaaaaay!) and so I was thrilled to see there is now one within driving distance for me.
The CCS sells premium brand make-up at reduced prices. The brands that I spotted on my visit were MAC, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Smashbox and Bumble and Bumble. The products are genuine and there is nothing wrong with them. They tend to be those from limited edition ranges, surplus stock from existing ranges and shades which are being phased out by the make-up brands.
I picked up five different MAC goodies while I was in the store (read on to see what I picked up). I think I may have to go back in a few months again and see what new stock they have in!!
