Mac Cremesheen Glass in Crème Anglaise (and The Cosmetics Company Store at Cheshire Oaks)

I made such a great discovery last week when I went to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet for the first time ever (sorry this is going to sound like I’m on this companys payroll and I’m really not) – The Cosmetics Company Store.

OH MY GOD. It’s full of discounted (I assume overstock/discontinued/end of line) cosmetics from brands like Mac, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Prescriptives, Clinique etc.
The stock is a bit hit and miss and haphazard but if you look there’s some great stuff – don’t be put off by the fact that everything there looks like a well-used tester, if you pick up the product and colour that you like and take it to the counter, you get a brand new fresh one in new packaging from the sales assistant. I nearly didn’t buy anything because I thought you had to buy the manky old used ones!



For example, this Mac Cremesheen Glass in Crème Anglaise that I bought for £9 usually costs £14.50 and is a really nice neutral “my-lips-but-better” colour that lasts pretty well for a gloss. I really wanted a Mac lipstick (see my wishlist) but I didn’t really fancy any of the ones available so I got this instead. It also has a yummy vanilla scent and (I think) it tastes like ricepaper - which is totally fine by me as I really like ricepaper :-)

They had Mac stuff from the Dame Edna and Hello Kitty collections, as well as some of the more staple collections and some stuff I didn’t recognise. I’m not mad into Mac, as I don’t wear eyeshadow (one of Macs strong points I believe) and only really bother with their lashes. But pffft, when it’s discounted…count me in!

There’s also a Revlon store at Cheshire Oaks as well which I stayed in for as long as my boyfriend would let me (aka not very long). And if you go to the Cheshire Oaks website and register, you get a 10% discount card that can be used at selected retailers.
