I was at the Albertville, MN CCO yesterday, and they had:

A ton of the Natural MSF's... I'd estimate 10-12 in each color. They're $17.25.

The new Chromeglasses from Chrome & Creme, I was really surprised to see these here already. I believe they were $10.25.

All of the e/s from the Lure collection (around $10)

A lot of fluidlines - New Weed, Nightfish, Non Conformist, Lithograph, Brassy, Shade, Blue Peep, Iris Eyes, Frostlite, Rich Ground (around $10)

They had a ton of lipstick, I'd estimate 40-50 colors. I noticed Blonde on Blonde, La Di Bra, Lingerie, Pink Maribu. They also had a lot of lipglass.

Other e/s: Moon's Reflection, Love Bud, Falling Star, Da Bling, Vellum, Contrast, and a few others I don't recall the name.

The lip palettes from the Nordstrom Patternmaker collection

Several brush sets from past collections, not sure which ones though

Lots of shadesticks and paints (they always have quite a few of these)

Along with all that, they had their usual items... foundation, powders, blush (no cream, just powder), lipliners, mascara.


If you're interested in Stila, they had more in stock than I've ever seen. They also had appx 10 Sun Showers e/s palettes, and appx 10 Rain Showers e/s palettes.


It was a nice surprise to find so much yesterday. I haven't been in a month or two due to my work schedule and it being 40 miles away. I definitely need to make a point of going at least 1x/month.

(There were several others, but I can't remember. There was a pretty good selection for 10$ each!)

Hullaballoo Hi Lite Powder from Balloonacy
Novel Twist Warm Eyes Palette
A bunch of lip palettes from Novel Twist

Was there last week, and this is what I remember (I spent an obscene amount of money):

Pigments:

Kitschmas
Golden Olive
Pastorale
Provence

LOADS of Plusglass, Lipglass, Lip Gelées, Lustreglass (probably a good 50% of what a counter would have in stock)
Loads of lipsticks -- standouts being Dubonnet (hiss which I just paid full price for), Hug Me, Twig, Snob, 15 Minutes, Myth, and Freshbrew
Three-packs of clear lipglass ($24 -- stood out as a great deal to me)

No Barbie shadows (sad me), but they had a big selection of other eyeshadows:

Swimming
Jewel Blue
Claire De Lune
Sushi Flower
Beauty Sleep
Eye Popping
All of the Lure shadows

That's nowhere near all of them.

Almost all of the paints
Almost all of the shadesticks
A lot of Fluidlines -- the only notable absence I found being Blacktrack (they had Graphic Brown, which I snagged)

Mineralize Satinfinish Foundation in almost all of the colors
Select SPF in just a few colors
StudioTech in NC/NW 50 & 55

A Viva Glam palate thing that I a) didn't know they would ever sell at a CCO and b) didn't know was ever made.

There were a few quads but nothing that stood out as "OH GOD! MUST BUY NOW!"

Prep & Prime Face Protect SPF 50

All of the Charged Waters

LOADS of eyeshadow. I mean LOADS.

I ended up with Silver Ring, Wondergrass, and All that Glitters (got the last one though, sorry
). I remember Eyepopping, Carbon, all of the Lure Shadows, Firespot, Claire de Lune, etc.

Beauty powders -- don't know which collection.

Loose powder.

They also had Global Glow MSF, Northern Light MSF (I got the last one they had in that day; they may have received more), and Gold Spill MSF (same).

ALL of the Antiquease stuff (brushes, eyeshadow compacts).

Take Wings Quad.

LOADS of lipstick -- almost all of the Lingerie lipsticks.

The Nordstrom liglasses with the bubbly stuff on the tubes (it was the anniversary collection I think 2 years ago?)

All of the charged waters and a lot of the skin care line.

Quite a few fluidlines, almost all of the paints, all of the browshaders, blot papers, trios of clear lipglass and lipgelees, LOADS of lipgelees in general, a few lipliners, a few eye kohls + brow pencils + softsparkle pencils... it was AMAZING on Saturday.

Hope you have fun! I'm sure there's LOADS of eyeshadow left. I'd never seen that many shadows there. Probably 30?

Oh, too cool! Thank you! I think I'm going Thursday---the credit card is melting already, LOL!

Back from an *interesting* weekend with my folks. Only now getting around to sorting out my CCO haul.

Origins:
A Perfect World lip treatment
Ginger Musts (Ginger Souffle body cream and Incredible Spreadable Scrub)
Rest Easy (Make a Difference hand cream, Sleep Time massage gel and Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind)
Sole Searcher (my second tube---got totally by mistake, thought I was getting cream instead of scrub. Oh, for dumb!)

MAC:

Clare de Lune eye shadow
Satellite Dreams eye shadow
Petalescent eye shadow
Zonk Bleu! eye shadow
Fertile eye shadow
Beautiful Iris eye shadow

Plum-Like lipstick
Creme de la Femme lipstick
Blast O' Blue lipstick

Smoothberry Cremestick liner
Beurre Cremestick liner

Opal Lustreglass
Pink Meringue Lipglass
Springbean Lustreglass

Just had to have Blast O' Blue---it's impractical but so unique! And while I prefer neutral eye shadow, I could not resist Zonk Bleu! Such a pretty teal that I had to get it.

Didn't see anything new other than what Baroquely mentioned. A few MSF's but none that interested me (no Northern Lights, bummer) and some darker shades of foundation and concealer.

Still, not a bad haul!

Sales tax is 7.0%...I'm not sure about the duty-free thing.

I just went yesterday, picked up Rule e/s, Raven kohl power, and Mystery kohl power.

They had sooo many things I wanted to haul...had to budget!!!
