Get your Cosmetic Fix

When shopping for makeup, let everyone else go to the big department stores. You can shop like a true New Yorker by going off the beaten path to one of New York’s best-kept secrets – Cosmetic Market on East 37th Street in Manhattan.

This spacious emporium is filled with makeup, skincare and hair care products from many of your favorite brands-like Borghese, L’Oreal, Elizabeth Arden, and Bobbi Brown.
These are likely to be discontinued items—but if you have a favorite shade of lipstick that you can’t find anymore, or you’d like to try a new powder or blush without spending too much, this is the place to visit. There are also bins filled with applicators, brushes and sponges to keep you well supplied.
But they go beyond cosmetics. If you head toward the back of the store, you’ll find a treasure trove of cute make-up cases, overnight bags and other small accessories  – some are less than $10 (for ex. the cute clutch pictured to step out to a cocktail party or dinner costs a mere $7.00).
Cosmetic Market is at 15 East 37th Street between 5th and Madison Avenues. (212) 725-3625
