The Cosmetic Company Outlet Cheshire Oaks ft Bobbi Brown & MAC

I Went on a little mission to discover this cosmetics store at Cheshire Oaks Outlet Village. 
Didn't realise that there was a cosmetics company store not too far from me. 
How did I not know?!

The cosmetics company store cheshire oaks outlet


Has discounted products from these brands:

MAC, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Origins, Smashbox, Bobbi Brown


Pleasant make-up and skincare store, it doesn't carry the full range of products... just a select few with great discounts. Also has a few previous MAC limited editions!

After browsing the shop, I did a lap of the store twice!

I decided I needed the Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing powder. 
This being the 1st make-up product I have owned from Bobbi Brown (not including the book, of course!) I was very excited!
Over on the MAC section I picked up a MAC mineralize lipstick.

Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder
in 
'Porcelain Pearl'
Bobbi brown brightening finishing powder porcelain pearl compact

Gorgeous mixture of lilac, blue, pink, yellow, green and a silky white powder. 

All in neat compartmented squares, housed in a silver compact. 

You could use a specific colour or could swirl them all with a powder brush to mix it up.
Adds an all over healthy glow to the face. 
Brightens as-well as illuminates!

Lilac - Brightens sallow or dull skin
Blue - Helps to cancel dark circles
Pink - Adds a healthy flush
Yellow - Helps to disguise redness
Green - Like the yellow helps to neutralise redness in the skin
White - Highlights and illuminates. Can also be used to highlight under brow bone as well as inner corners of eyes. A cheekbone highlighter too!



Has a very useful mirror inside the compact and comes with a material case to carry it in.
This reminds me of a compact version a little similar to the Guerlain meteorites pearles. 
Much easier to pop in your handbag for touch-ups throughout the day.










A lovely subtle brightening powder so great to finish off your make-up look with, to add a healthy sheen and to help neutralise discolouration, redness and sallow dull skin.








MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in 'Divine Choice'

Not tried any of the mac mineralize lipsticks before. I love the magnetic closure!
It means the lid is less likely to come off in my make-up bag also fun to use!

MAC describe this as a 'mid tonal cool pink cream' and I agree it is a medium creamy pink shade with a slight glossy sheen to it.

A pretty pink, that's lovely and silky to apply. Still has MAC's signature Vanilla scent.
77 Mineral rich formula lipstick that nourishes your lips and gives a lightweight non sticky creamy finish.

So that's what I picked up from the Cosmetics Company Store in Cheshire Oaks.
