For anybody who doesn't know there's a great CCO inside of the Sak's "Off 5th" outlet store at Great Lakes Crossing Mall in Auburn Hills, MI. I was there yesterday and they had tons of chromeglasses, lipglasses, lipsticks, some blushcremes and powder blushes, cheap nailpolish, holiday and patternmaker palettes, lip palettes, eye kohls, glimmershimmers, pigment vials, a few brushes, about 9 or 10 different eyeshadows including black tied and zonk bleu!, fibre rich mascara, plus LOTS of powders and foundations.

All I bought was Show Coral chromeglass (LOVE!) but I'm thinking I may go back today.

much thanks to the original poster. i thought i would have to drive all the way to birch run to check out this store (2+ hrs away, the 1 in auburn hills is 30 mins away). they have a wide variety of mac makeup at reduced prices, i was so excited! i ended up getting only 2 things though because i plan to go all out for fafi. i do plan to go back soon though. i got liquid last liner in molten sol ($11.75, regularly $16.50) and mac couture lipglass, collection '06 ($14, regularly $20).

I was there on Wednesday (managed to restrain myself from buying anything though... gotta wait 'til I see how much Fafi I fork out for and what I have left, if anything) and they have Sunpepper, too! And the one that looks really similar to it... um, blue-brown? I think?

I also saw some Lightful and some Strobe Cream, but both were in very large tubes and I didn't wanna spend that much on a product I've never actually used on my face and made a decision about. Those are the only things I specifically noticed, but there was a bunch more - it's just separated out into two areas, with the eye/lip stuff in one display and the rest-of-the-face stuff in another.

Is that that older woman with short blond hair and glasses? If so, she must be the one who helped me today. She was sooo sweet and patient as I took forever picking out my things. Just an overall really nice lady.


Anyways, from what I can remember, they had...

-20+ shades of lipglass/lustreglass/chromeglass, including moonbathe & lure ones. Some of the shades I can recall are hothouse, palatial, show coral, pastel polish, and lots of others.
-20+ lipsticks, including ones from belle azure, lure, and moonbathe. Some shades I recall are flowerplay, pink cabana, up note, pink freeze, fresh brew, stroke of lust, goddess, morange, and tonnnns of others.
-All the lip varnishes, lots of pro long wears, and a couple of slimshines and tendertones (including "hush").
-TLC sticks (old packaging) and pots (new packaging).
-8 or so lipgelees, including most of the c-shock ones.
-15+ full size pigments. Most of the rushmetal shades, a few she-shines, plus accent red, jewelmarine glitter, and others I can't recall.
-15+ e/s, some shades I recall being black tied (lure packaging), mancatcher, aquavert, felt blue, fountainbleu, jewel blue, claire de lune, and a bunch of others.
-Liquidlasts (can't recall shades but there were at least 8 different ones) and fluidlines (including nightfish, rich ground, delft, haunting, blitz & glitz, and others).
-at least 8 different shades of paints.
-Technakohl liners.
-Brow sets in every colour.
-blushcremes in lune, blossoming, and cherche. Powder blushes in margin, fever, and a few others.
-Hullaballoo high-light powder and Star! IPP.
-A few odd shades of moistureblend (one of them was NC15, I remember) and studio tech.
-All shades of studio mist foundations and blushes. Several shades of SFF (although none lighter than 35-ish).
-Select sheer loose in NW15 and one other shade (I'm thinking NC40-something).
-Lots of skincare, including Fix+, green gel cleanser, clense-off oil, fast response eye cream, studio moisture cream, a try-on pac, etc all in old packaging.
-Lightful lotions & serums.
-A few brushes including the angled blush brush and a powder brush, plus some smaller eye brushes.

There was probably a lot more I'm not remembering, but that was the jist of it!

i was just @ the cco tuesday of this week. i got the last face brush set (excluding the display). i was super excited because i've been wanting it forever (i already have the basic & eye sets).

i looked on ebay and it was going for way more than it originally cost. i got it at the cco for $33.75, it was originally $48. i was especially excited because it had the 187 (which i have & love).

they also had other brush set available for those that are interested.

Has anyone been to the CCO at Great Lakes Crossing lately? I was hoping to trek down there this coming week (between semesters right now!) if it is worth it!

Anyone?


TIA!

I was there last week. They still have a bunch of leftovers from the royal collections from last fall/winter (I don't remember which one's which, but it was all the ones that ended in -tease. Curiositease, Antiquitease, etc.) I know they still had the lipstick/gloss sets left, as well as one of the pigment sets (I think it was the cool pigment set). They also have a random assortment of other stuff, but I've only been a MAC addict since last summer, so I really couldn't give you collection names for much.

They also have a second display area where they keep the more skincare-type products. They have a big healthy-sized thing of strobe cream and strobe liquid, they have some of the lightful stuff, they have a lot of the various creams/primers, eye makeup remover, liquid foundations, and blushes.

It's always worth going to sneak a peek, IMO.

  • Copperized
  • RushMetal
  • Gold Mode
  • Jardin Aires
  • Blue Brown
  • Dark Soul
  • Violet
There are also skincare products:
  • Strobe Cream

That's all I can recall
