The products include overstock, discontinued colors, and limited-edition items that have been taken off department-store shelves priced 10 to 50 percent off retail.
I realize you don't all have access to an outlet mall, but if you do, I highly recommend you pay one a visit. It's my new favorite place to spend my lunch breaks, and since I know you're going to do exactly as I tell you, here is the list of all 74 locations.
I present you with my favorite recent purchases from CCS starting with the MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow Duo color I found there in "Illusionary Burning Ambition", which I wore to work yesterday:
I'm a natural blonde, so my eye brows are basically non-existent. I've never really done much to fill them in because I feel like a drag queen when I do and am petrified of looking chola. Well, the Bobbi Brown Eye Brow Kit in blonde/wheat caught my eye while I was there, so I purchased it for $24.50 (from my online research it appears it was originally around $38 to $40 full price).
The kit has two eye shadows for filling in brows, a mini eyebrow brush and mini tweezers. You can actually see my eyebrows now and the best part is, I don't even look chola:
Last but not least, I couldn't finish this post without sharing what's on my lips because it's such a good deal. It's actually this lip balm called Gentle Lip Care Pearl & Shine from Aldi's beauty line, Lacura.
Do you want to know how cheap this stuff is? It comes 3 to a pack for only $1.49! I have one in my purse, make-up bag and bedside drawer.
Now you can't say I never told you anything!
p.s. A few of you little bargainistas have mentioned I should do a make-up tutorial, so I've been thinking about doing a vlog (shoot me now) or step-by-step tutorial on my make-up routine. Any thoughts on this? Let a girl know!
