Cosmetics Company Store
This store is good for the bargain/treasure hunter that doesn't have a particular product in mind. They carry the overstock or discontinued stuff from a few high end brands. So, if you go to any CCO, bear in mind that it's self-serve to an extent. The colors/shades/products they carry are somewhat random and vary from store to store and even week to week (esp. MAC). Once in a while you'll score with some nice shades and/or nice brushes at a discount.
The employees try to be helpful but they don't seem to really know about the product lines they carry (Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, MAC). That being said it is, afterall, an outlet store and not the brand's actual counter. General questions are addressed pretty well ("I'm looking for a blue eye liner") but more specific questions ("What's the difference between this powder and the one next to it?") they may or may not be able to answer.
