    Toronto, ON, Canada & Area - Cosmetic Outlets

    Hi there,

    We don't actually have CCOs in Canada, but there are still cosmetic outlets. Unfortunately, they seem hard to find! This thread is specifically for cosmetic outlets in the Toronto, Ontario area.

    I will update the list in the front as you post:

    Cosmetic Outlet, Dixie Mall, Mississauga



    If you have others, please post in this thread.

    Never knew there was cosmetic outlets @ Dixie Mall lol

    I suggest :

    Markham Fairgrounds - Estee Lauder/M.A.C Warehouse Sale

    It only happens a few times a year though, so it's never open all the time.

    Cloverdale Mall - Vendor that sells M.A.C

    Heard from a friend, never been to it :-( Someone take me lol

    At Vaughn Mills there's a cosmetics outlet too; I can't remember the exact name of it but it's right next to the Johnny Rockets...Sometimes you can find MAC, eyeshadows are usually 14 bucks... I don't know about the other stuff;... All the drugstore brands can be found there as well...
    Powder Foundations:NC45 & NC43, Diorskin Forever compact 050, Cargo wet/dry powder 70

    They have 2 stores really in Dixie Mall... one near the Sears entrance called 'Cosmetics N' More for Less' and one near Urban Planet. Both sell relatively the same items. I've seen Almay & Revlon mascaras, Revlon quads, Covergirl items, Almay makeup removers. The prices are pretty decent. I've seen items ranging from $2.99 - 5.99

    Both locations direct to this website: Canada Cosmetics, Health & Beauty at discount prices at SaleEvent.ca

    I found this hair product that was discounted ... well stocked there

    I live fairly close to this mall and go almost weekly. I haven't seen a vendor that sells MAC here... unless you mean Sherway Gardens (Mall) which is about 2mins from this mall?

    To my knowledge, Cloverdale does not sell MAC but does sell NYX at the Rexall, and their Zellers has an incredible range of lines and very complete lines at that.

    There's only one cosmetic outlet in Dixie Mall now --- the one close to Sears.

    Not a M.A.C store but a private vendor that rents the stalls there. I heard it from a friend, I guess she sells it whenever she gets some M.A.C stuff.

    You're right, there are two in Dixie Mall. There are cosmetics in the old Pharmacy location --- I somehow missed that was there. It's fairly new and I don't usually go past Micheal's

    I just went on the Vaughan Mills website and the place is called DCW Cosmetics. I haven't been there before though so I will check it out when I go there next time. In the store description is says "Featured Brand Names:
    Revlon, Cover Girl, Red Earth, Almay, Neutrogena, and various perfume brands. ".

    It doesn't mention MAC so they may not carry it?

    Re: Toronto, ON, Canada & Area - Cosmetic Outlets

    I've been to the one in Vaughan Mills before, they have a great selection of nail polishes for pretty cheap. From my memory, drugstore brands were 3 for $5, and OPI and the slightly better ones were $7 each I think? I can't quite remember. They have perfume there too for cheaper than retail. Makeup wise, they only had a few baskets of random things from drugstore brands, like Almay, Revlon, Covergirl, etc. I didn't see any MAC at that time, so I'm not sure if they carry it. I would go there for nailpolish and perfume, but I wouldn't go there strictly for makeup!

    I havent been to the GTA since the spring, but when I was at Vaughan Mills, the cosmetic store there had NYX.. That's the only thing I remember from there..

    I went to the cosmetics outlet in Barrie, and judging by the items she had in stock at the time and a comment from someone working there, I am pretty sure she gets her items from the warehouse sale.. I asked the person at the counter when they were getting more stock, and was told that they were probably getting it at the end of the week and it should be put out early the following week.. which coincided with the next warehouse sale... so I'd try visitng this place the week after a warehouse sale and you might get a better selection..

    There are people selling MAC at Pacific Mall, but it's all horribly fake.

    I actually went yesterday because I saw the update on the website too. I asked the Sales Associate when they opened and she said last weekend. It's a nice clean, little store next to the Ted Baker outlet. I took some photos of the MAC display which I will post in a bit.
    They sell the usual Estee Lauder brands at about 30% off retail and of course only select bits of the full line or LE or discontinued items.
    Brands I saw at the store were: MAC, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Ojon, DKNY, Bobbi Brown, Origins, and Make Up Forever. There were lots of perfume sets too.

    I was at the Toronto CCO found the selection pretty disappointing if you consider the fact that they have that massive sale at the Markham fair grounds once a quarter it's not like they are low on local stock for the store.

    Wow, there's Make Up Forever there? Is that common? I'd love to know what kinds of products they had, especially the MAC!
