It’s no secret that we are beauty-fiends here at Style Magazines. From road testing new season trends to discovering new cult-favourites, we know our way around a beauty counter. It should come as no surprise then that when The Cosmetics Company Store announced that they would be opening their first Queensland store at DFO Brisbane, we got super excited. May have even slipped an expletive or two.

If you’re wondering what The Cosmetics Company Store is and why you should be absolutely thrilled, allow us to fill you in. Since opening their first store in 1994 in Pennsylvania, The Cosmetics Company Store has built a reputation amongst beauty-gurus as being one of the premier destination for makeup, fragrance and skincare products. The beauty retailer stocks over 30 brands from the prestigious Estée Lauder Company including Estée Lauder, M.A.C Cosmetics, Clinique, Smashbox and Bobbi Brown – basically all our favourite brands that we keep in our bathroom vanity! The products available in store are comprised of excess items from company and retail partners, meaning the products available constantly change and you are guaranteed an exciting new discovery every single time. The new store opens December 8, just in time for all your silly season needs! Obviously, we’ll be picking up some eye glitter for our New Year’s Eve look…

This new addition to DFO Brisbane’s offerings comes at a time when the centre is gearing up for the festive season and Christmas shoppers. In addition to already extended Christmas trading hours, DFO Brisbane will also be open until 9pm on Thursdays, perfect for a bit of retail therapy after a long week or to pick up an outfit for the weekend. After perusing the wide range of retailers (including Country Road, Seed, Mimco, Witchery, Peter Alexander, Oroton, Fossil and the newly opened Polo Ralph Lauren), stop by any of the restaurants for a bite to eat to replenish your energy. Or, if it’s something a little cheekier you are after, Burrito Bar and BurgerUrge are licensed, meaning you can also fit in a sneaky mid-week tipple. Don’t mind if I do!

Don’t let the mayhem of Christmas get you down. DFO Brisbane has made it easier than ever with up to 70% off all our favourite designer brands. Bring on the silly season!
