A small office space on the second floor of 588 Broadway was used as this week's Chantecaille sample sale venue. Inside, I found six tables set up with discounted products and the place was bustling with beauty bargain seekers.
In the makeup section, Chantecaille's animal-themed eye palettes were available in three different styles: Save the Bees, Save the Sharks, and The Wild Horse. Prices on these palettes were $40 and $45. Other cosmetic products included Hydra Chic lipsticks for $15, Poudre Haute Protection Naturelle for $55, The Starlight Gold Collection 2-piece set for $75, Les Fêtes Trio for $35, Pebble Compact with Cheek Shade for $15, Les Sorbets lip gloss palettes for $25, mascaras for $10, New Stick concealer/foundation for $20, and Delices de Roses lip gloss palettes for $25.
Markdowns on the company's skincare line was limited to only two items. Shoppers had a choice of Bio Lifting Serums for $80 and Bio Lifting Masks for $60. Both are fantastic for anti-aging.
Adjacent to the skincare table was another table for fragrances. Here I found scented candles for $30 and eau de parfums for $50 & $75 depending on the size.
This week's Chantecaille sample sale runs until Friday and is open from 10am to 6pm. I was told by an employee there will be restocking tomorrow with new products being introduced. Also, although credit cards are accepted, my MizAdvice is that you hit the ATM first as they do not charge tax if you pay in cash.
