I finally found a CCO close by! For those of you who live in the Inland Empire in Southern California, there is a CCO (Cosmetics Company Outlet), or more specifically a CCS (Cosmetics Company Store; same thing) in the Ontario Mills mall. But instead of being its own store, this one is inside Off 5th, the Saks Fifth Avenue Outlet. They had tons of stuff from limited edition MAC, and even discounted permanent items, as well as a large selection of items from other brands such as Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Stila, Clinique, and Origins. So I bought two LE items and one discountinued item I had been wanting. Here is what I got:
Pictured: Paint Pot in Rollickin (LE Fafi Collection), Highlight Powder in Golden Nectar (LE Naked Honey Collection), and Shadestick in Lucky Jade (discontinued).
I’m loving the Highlight Powder. It is a golden shimmery powder that leaves a pretty golden frosty sheen when applied above the cheekbone and blends beautifully with bronzers. This will look especially pretty on tan skin tones, but it still works on my current pale skin.
Rollickin Paint Pot is a gorgeous teal with a hint of shimmer. It works great as a base for cool toned eyeshadows, not something I wear a lot, but still great to have.
The Shadestick in Lucky Jade is so pretty! I am a sucker for greens and this is a perfect base for green eyeshadows.
Swatches from left to right: Shadestick in Lucky Jade, Paint Pot in Rollickin, Highlight Powder in Golden Nectar (swatched much darker to show the color; it is a lot more sheer when used normally).
