I don't know what other reviewers expect from this discount store. It's clearly a store that buys discontinued or liquidated random stock that varies from week to week. So it can be hit and miss. But never have i come out of their empty handed....More

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 not to mention good chocolate for a fraction of the normal retail...More

I loved all about this place. Unfortunally I just found it in my last week in but I recommend for everybody! Cosmetic with good quality and good price. They also sell cheap chocolates and others candies. Just pay attention to the validity of chocolate.

If you have some time to rummage through the shelves here, there are some great bargains to be found. Many items are recognisable and still in stock in local drugstores. However they put horrendous giant stickers on the items, presumably to prevent people from transferring...More

For those who have poorly reviewed the store -- its because they don't understand that's it NOT a high end store. Its part closeout store, part dollar store, part random item store and definitely a place if you're not picky to get new lipstick, mascara,...More

Not worth my time or money. Saw YouTube videos about bargains and got very excited about it. As you go through the isles looking for high end or even drugstore brands you get very disappointed. Try've got old, bad kept items, of completely obscure brands...More

We stumbled on this place while sightseeing. Coming from Australia, the prices here are much, much cheaper than at home. A wide range of cosmetic brands such as Almay, Revlon and L'Oreal, but also a few other random things like Fila moisture-wicking sports socks (6...More
