Best Place to Score Cheap Makeup

Bonne Bell's Biannual Sale

They come from as far away as Canada and Michigan, and begin standing in line at 7 a.m. just to get first crack at fine cosmetics at dirt-cheap prices. It's Bonne Bell's biannual sale, held the first Saturday of December and June in a warehouse behind Bonne Bell's corporate headquarters. There, makeup junkies speed-shop with cardboard boxes, stuffing them full of gift sets, Smackers, and returned and discontinued goods -- all of which are at least 50 percent off or marked for less than cost.
