The Cosmetics Company Store (The CCO)

The Cosmetics Company Store (nicknamed the CCO in some places) is a discount store that sells Estee Lauder brands at a 30% discount. Sometimes the items in the store are discontinued and other times they are just overstock items that you can still find. Brands like MAC, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Origins, and Smashbox all fall under the Estee Lauder name. For more companies owned by Estee Lauder you can click here.


In case you are curious about these stores, I have been to two of them recently. I have listed below what I can remember as well as what I purchased. Hopefully this will give you an idea of what they have to offer.


Silver Sands Premium Outlets - 10562 Emerald Coast Parkway Destin, FL 32550

They had a good selection of MAC lipsticks, Estee Lauder pure color blushes, Estee Lauder lip products, Mac eye shadows, Clinique nail polishes, and they had 2 Bobbi Brown Corrector colors (almond & very deep bisque), a couple MAC Blushes, a small selection of MAC mineralize Skinfinish Natural in lighter colors. Keep in mind there are alot more products, this is just what I can recall.


Here’s what I came home with.

- Bobbi Brown Corrector in Very Deep Bisque ($17.00 normally $24.00)

- MAC Lustre Lipstick in Desire ($10.50 normally $15.00)

- Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup Lesson Kit in Intensity 5.0 ($29.75 normally $42.50) This kit comes with a full size double wear light foundation, a mini double wear conealer, a mini matte perfecting primer, and sample of advanced night repair eye, a foundation brush, and a how to DVD. The foundation itself retails for $37.00 so even if you paid full price at Nordstrom or Macy’s you’d still be getting a good deal.

Of course they have alot more products than this, I just listed the few things I can remember for sure.

I’ve read about bad service on some online forums, but I did not experience that at either of these locations. The employees were friendly and willing to help. Both locations have plenty of testers out so you can swatch and sample to your hearts content. To find out if there is one near you click here.
