  • My favorite cosmetics for brand and I went. Find a lot of cheap stuff wasn't looking for brand as a result of the large coffin! To doubt eyes of Ghirardelli premium chocolate in the candy corner in the back are still sold, I was surprised. Recommend you to look at various other gadgets, so the.

  • When in Midtown I always stop at Cosmetics Market for items like seriously reduced quality coffee from Italy. There are also quality brand pastas for next to nothing, olive oil and balsamic vinegar no...  more »
  • Deodorants (Dove) to 1.99 or 3.99 then they're worth 4.50 or 8.99 elsewhere; brand make-up (clinic, l ' Oréal,...) always 30-50% less expensive. So yes there is not all brands and all products, but it's worth taking a look ;)

  • This place is like outlet for cosmetics. They sell combination of unknown brands and famous brands. For well known high-end brands, they sell only SAMPLE sized items(which are actually not meant for retail sale) and some of them are discontinued ones. So they are soon to be expired or already expired... They sell some other stuff at the back and some item was really good (like german chocolate) and cheap.
  • This place is a make-up shopper's Paradise! The exotic background music they play sets the tone for a very pleasant shopping experience. I LOVE the wide and very inexpensive array of lipsticks, especially. I can usually find very inexpensive generic brands of skin care, but I find the name brands a little pricey, still, though I recently bought a nice toner by Borghese for only $5. Every item is tagged with the price and a security tag. They are meticulous here abut that, so you're never left wondering. The only major complaint I have is that the cashiers are always babbllng among themselves very LOUDLY and turning their heads away from the customer to laugh and talk with each other. It is most unprofessional and rude. The only one I will even deal with is the one who seems to have the most seniority, as far as asking about an item I'm searching for. Lastly, I was disappointed that they did not carry Sally Hansen's quick dry for nails, which is very expensive in other stores.
  • This is a good place to make a gift kit or restock if you’re not picky. Unlike the positive reviews, I found very limited stock of quality brands. If you want CoverGirl, Revlon or L’Oréal eyeshadow, there are plenty of choices, but none even close to the colors I wanted. You won’t find many popular colors or foundation/powder for fair skin, and eyeliner was next to none in any color or style. When they have only one or two of an item on the sales floor remaining, they move in the glass cash register case with blue-tinted fluorescent lights. Not only must you hover under customers checking out to see it, but you can’t tell what’s in there or what shade it is. Don’t ask for something in either unless you already have a good relationship, you’re with an adorable kid, or bring in a toy canine! I kindly requested to see a particular item in the case, but the manager behind the counter replied with one excuse after another: “Look out there instead. We have a lot of stuff,”, ending with “I’m sorry, I need to take customers checking out,” as she pointed to an empty line. A sympathetic cashier was patient enough to help me (thank you!) I won’t waste my subway fares to get here again, but I might drop in to replace a crystal nail file — those are a good price at a buck.
  • Friend and I went to the counter to pay received terrible service and left without her goods. I went to the counter unaware of this, received terrible service and left without the goods. We met outside to realized we'd both been treated rudely. prices are amazing though.
  • good place to buy cosmetics without spending too much

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
