Thanks for the pics- I think I see Magnetic Fields e.s from style warriors there:) I have been looking for that lately since I've seen one of my fav Youtubers using it constantly. Going to make a drive up there today I am thinking... I can let you guys know if there's anything new

Went to the ones in Orange and Cabazon this weekend but they had the same stuff at both :( the one at Las Americas Premium Outlets is REALLY GOOD!

I stopped this morning on the way back from a convention in San Diego. Wasn't really impressed with the selection, although the sales associate was really nice.

What I saw:

lots of Tartan Tale sets
Holiday 2011 pigment sets (bought Smoky Berry)
4 brushes (bought the 189)
about 8 Big Bounce eyeshadows
about 12 of the larger/mineralize eyeshadows
about 10 regular size eyeshadows
maybe 10 lipsticks
maybe 10 lipglasses
a few foundations (none for anyone less than NC/NW45)

Hope this helps

Thanks for the update! The CCO at the Las Americas outlet usually has a better selection but the SA there are SO RUDE. The SA in Carlsbad are a breath of fresh air compared to them.

Any new updates? I am wanting to go but am trying to decide between Carlsbad and San Ysidro. I don't really like being that close to the border so I prefer Carlsbad, even though it is a good 45 from here. Does San Ysidro have better selection? I heard they aren't the nicest down there. Any help would be nice. This would be my first time going. Also do they accept debit, or cash only?

I heard Carlsbad is a smaller location and has few variety of products but honestly, I am so iffy about going to the San Ysidro one. I went to the outlets down there once and vowed to never go back. HOWEVER, since there's a CCO down there, it might be worth it...
I am looking for brushes. Did you find any at either location?

I was thinking about going but decided to go the one by the border instead. I heard they have a better selection of lipsticks. If you go, I'd love for you to say what you saw! Last month I went to SY and it was alright, but kinda wiped out from Christmas.

I live like 5 min from the SY one I go waaaay too often lol. I pretty much know their entire stock plus the employees know me and show me things before they put them out because they know I'm a crazy collector!! Lol. That's why I wanted to see what Carlsbad has that SY doesn't. But the drive is what's making me hesitate. Wouldn't want to waste all that gas and find nothing good !

Oh okay. Yeah, I live like 10 min from the boarder but what's crazy is that I have been a beauty blogger for a year and a couple months and barely went to a CCO last month...crazy right? I can't believe I didnt taken advantage before. Im itching to go again. I was contemplating on going to the Carlsbad one but since I haven't been to the SY one for a month, I might make the shorter drive and go to the SY one. I heard the Carlsbad one has less selection so I might just make the SY one my default. Have you seen anything good at the SY?

:eek:1. Carlsbad California Outlet Location I walked in there today intending to buy quite a bit of items but there were three ladies never even acknowledge me they were talking about parking and Thanksgiving - chitchatting about a lot of personal things but no good customer service- I walked around the store several times even looked at all of them but they looked away and continued to chat . I will not spend my hard-earned money on a place that doesn't even knowledge customers not sure why they're working there it was evident they didn't want to be there, all three of them. I will Absolutely call their corporate office (I think it's in NY?) and let them know they're paid employees are just a little bit too laid-back I have several friends out of work that would love to work there and give great customer service they will earn their money
