There was a good reason for my excitement. The Cosmetics Company Store is an Estee Lauder brands outlet that sells makeup, skincare and fragrance from brands such as MAC, Bobbi Brown and Smashbox. I've only been to these stores in America and have always picked up a bargain. Over here, there was one in Bicester Village that I knew of, but it is quite a trek away. Clarks Village is a lot nearer to where I live and it means good quality discounted makeup is even nearer to home.
I had a really good browse and found some items that I liked. In the MAC section was quite a few items from limited edition collections such as Sharon and Kelly Osbourne.
MAC Three Ring Yellow Eyeshadow £8.75 RRP £13.00
MAC Bloomin Mad Eyeshadow £9.25 RRP £13.00
MAC Exotic Ember Mineralize Blush £14.00 RRP £21.00
Bobbi Brown Pale Pink Blusher £13.50 RRP £19.00
Altogether it all came to £45.50. I definitely got some good savings on the products and was glad to find discounted makeup not too far away from Cardiff.
