I have gone to the store in Wilsonville, OR for years but just recently had a rather bad experience (yes, the people that work there could definitely be more helpful and perhaps a smile wouldn't kill them but I have kept going in because I thought they had good deals).  During my last trip there I purchased three MAC lip glosses that I had planned to sell on Amazon.  When I tried to sell them however, Amazon wouldn't accept them because they were expired.  They were manufactured in 2009 but the price tag was conveniently placed over the date.  I am quite frustrated by this as I have purchased many items from this store and was never made aware that I was buying anything other than fresh products. Does anyone know if it is legal for a store to sell expired cosmetics?

I went to the Leesburg, Virginia outlet and visited this store on Christmas Eve, upon entering the store, we were never welcomed. I had to ask for help as they just stood there, after asking for help one time, I was chastised by an employee for smelling a product. I was quite offended and decided to just leave. In my way out the door I was stopped by the manager so that she could let me know that her employee was right in everything she did, so much for making the customer feel like a fool and all of this in front of a store full of customers. The testers were all dirty and i was only going to buy from here because it is close to my home, I will drive trhe extra 5 miles to Macy and be welcomed and appreciated for shopping at their store. I will never go back nor will I use them even if in a different location because of how I was treated at this store.

I went to the Niagara Falls location on the long weekend and it was my first cco visit and I found it to be pretty tidy, no funny smell lol. I was only interested in their MAC stuff and they had a decent selection. Lots of palettes from the holiday collection and novel twist collection. I think each were about $25. They had lots of lip products, shadesticks, paintpots, even some foundations and concealers and brushes, which I regret not looking at. I only got a eyeshadow from the moonbathe collection ($10) and a chromeglass (11.75).

Bella, I've been to the Napa one and I completely agree with your assessment. I think maybe some other locations may have better selections but the Napa one sure doesn't. I think the Vacaville one is a LOT better in terms of pricing, selection and customer service.

I'd like to check it out and see for myself. If it's not much cheaper it's probably not worth it.

The one near me is always clean & it didn't smell like old ladies when I went in! That's so funny. :)I usually buy my Clinique facial soap & toner there. I've bought a few fun Origins products there also. The prices aren't that much cheaper, so it's only beneficial to me if I don't have to make a special trip to the outlets, which are about an hour away.

I'd rather pay full price, just because I prefer the experience of being able to test things and have access to the full range in a clean, attractive setting with expert advice.

Hit and Miss, big time. I would only buy eye shadows from the Cosmetic Company Store though. Simply because of the aged factor.

I'd probably be worried about the expiration date too. I get really paranoid about how old creme and products I know are really seeping in my pores are.

I've been quite happy shopping there - I can always get some Estee Lauder moisturizer for 20% off, and was able to pick up a limited edition eyeshadow duo that was out of stock at the store. If you're looking for something specific it will be hit and miss, but if it's a basic or you're just browsing you can find some great stuff! I go to one that is inside a Saks outlet at a mall, so it's not far off and its always kept clean and orderly.

It's hit or miss, but I will say that I found the MAC concealer palettes that are now discontinued in MAC stores...
