GENERAL FAQ: Cosmetic Company Outlets/Stores (CCO/CCS)

post #1 of 124
Thread Starter 
What is a CCO?

CCO stands for Cosmetics Company Outlet.

What products do they carry?

CCO's sell Estee Lauder owned companies cosmetics, usually for 30% off the retail price. This includes discontinued items as well as some current ones. They do not have sales and they also impose a limit of 3 of the same product. Some of the brands include:
  • MAC
    Stila
    Estee Lauder
    Clinique
    Bobbi Brown
    Origins


Where can I find a CCO near me?

You can go to www.outletbound.com to look for the closest outlet near you. In the "locate-a-store" field, put the name Cosmetics Company or Estee Lauder, and you will get a listing of all the CCO's. Some CCO's are inside outlet stores such as Saks off 5th, Neiman Marcus Last Call, and Nordstrom Rack/ Last Chance. Others are free standing CCO's.

CCO/CCS do not do mail/phone orders. They are a walk-in store only.

I just want to make sure I understand... if I buy 3 blushes, same brand same color and 3 more blushes different color but still the same brand, is that okay?

I dont think I'd be much of a hoarder... but its good to know.. and how are the stores organized? Are all the brands in one section or just all over the place?

Re: GENERAL FAQ: Cosmetic Company Outlets/Stores (CCO/CCS)

The displays are grouped by brand then by product. And, you can get as many products as you would like, but not 3 of the same.

Re: GENERAL FAQ: Cosmetic Company Outlets/Stores (CCO/CCS)

The CCO i go to is not on the list, so I'll add it.

Its in the Harborside Financial Center in Jersey City. Take the subway to the WTC and take the Path train one stop. The CCO is inside the little mall just outside the PATH station. Worth the trip for anyone living in NYC

They will ask you for the name of the company you work for, to make sure they participate & also a company ID as proof. They never bothered me about limits.

Plenty of Bobbi Brown, some Aveda, Bumble & Bumble ... and naturally MAC, Clinique, Prescriptives

Hey sorry, quick question- I live by Jersey City--to get some makeup from this store, you need to be affiliated with a participating company??? Like something in the makeup business? Or can anyone get stuff here? thanks.

Hey, the CO at Jersey City is not open to the public. I went there this past weekend and they asked for a photo Id of a company you work for in/around the building. =( Any other suggestions?
