  • Is a store of cosmetics (of unknown brands or probably end series of marks semi famous) prices are interesting but not worth

  • A small discount store of makeup and face and body care products. Not luxury brand, but even bargains on L'Oreal l, Nars, Rimmel, NYX, NYC, Bath and Body work, Victoria secret and other American brands

  • This store have shampoo, creams, makeup, nail polish ... But the variety of brands is small, you don't find there the most famous brands. Have some items of Revlon, Maybelline, Loreal. The price is better than in other places.

  • Yes, rude employees. Some good deals, a lot of junk to sort through. Selling samples and really old stuff, kinda like a garage sale. The owner/manager was showing an employee how to make boxes perfectly straight on a shelf, he would double his business if he taught them to smile and say hello and get off their phones.
  • One of favorite finds. I go here at least 3 or 4 times a year, if not more. Helps me stretch a dollar and stay looking great. Nice gift ideas. Coffee and chocolate and other specialty items in the back. A simple treasure trove of discount items of quality.
  • Some of the comments here are ridiculous. I shop here all the time and have no bad experiences, and also find brands that are 2 to 3 times as much in Lord and Taylor and other department stores. BIG CORRECTION: I had previously found the service here excellent, but today May 16, 2016, I found four new service people, all women, in the store, and all were impossibly rude and unhelpful. The woman who usually is in the aisles to help (a blondish, short woman of Latin origin) is gone and the one today was kneeling down each time I passed (three times) on her cell phone and when I asked for help just waved her arms. I went to the desk where everyone was rude, pointing instead of showing. When I said I can't find what I'm looking for please show me, one did but with great reluctance and rudeness. Not sure I'll go back here again. Owner, please take note, your current employees will chase people away rather than bring them back. Horrible, horrible service.
  • Overhyped. Made a special trip on a short visit to NYC ..mostly odd colours and useless. .stick to century 21
  • Great prices on dubious, off-the-truck, mismatched, discontinued, low and high end cosmetic supplies and toiletries. Its like the Marshalls or TJ Maxx for makeup. If you search for half an hour, you might have a decent or amazing find. Or you leave with nothing. Some of the items are wrapped in larger containers, wrapped in packing tape or didn't have a box at all. Its great when you think of the savings (30-50%!) And sad when you look at the beautiful items sold without their luster. Similar to being sold MAC on the streets of Washington heights from a fold out table. I found Estee Lauder and Lancome creams, Tresemme shampoos, Burt Bee tinted chapstick, Burt Bee acne treatment and dead sea wipes and facial masks. I was skeptical of the creams. I care about my face and didn't want a dubious facial cream leaving a mark. Be careful when you buy and check the expiration date! So I bought the Tresemme shampoo and the tinted lip balm (for $3.99 instead of $6.69). The feeling of the place is off too. The cashiers aren't friendly, they are just doing their job. The items are stocked haphazardly, as if a kid ran through the aisles knocking products over. Weird. I might come back for the thrill of finding a bargain.
