For fans of beauty products or shoppers looking to update their makeup collection for the Spring, Bobbi Brown is hosting a sample sale at 260 Fifth Avenue this week. It opens to the public this morning.

Pricing for most things are $15 or less. We went looking for lipstick but the selection was limited – only two colors on offer – the Creamy Matt lip color (Valencia Orange 9 and Hot 14) at $8. And one type of lip gloss (Almost Peach 10) at $8. There’s mascara available (Black 1) for $8.

They did have lots of Bobbi Brown foundation – several types including the signature Skin Foundation and the revolutionary foundation sticks ($12). (See below for available colors).

Also available was setting powder in soft honey 8 (standard size) $15 and three different colors of Illuminating powder $15.

There’s also skin moisturizers such as oils ($15) and cleansers ($10). There was the remedy kits ($15) and the fragrance Beach (EDP at $24).

In the back were the Bobbi Brown Bumble & Bumble hair products such as hair oil and masks. Many of these items were just $5.

If you aren’t sure what color foundation you should use or need help with any of the products, there are beauty consultants who can help.

As for expiration, I was told that some of the products (such as foundation) expire 2 years after opening. Also, there is a limit of what you can buy. I believe it’s 10 product limit.
