About Us

Ellen's Cosmetics has been established for over 20 years and was renamed over 15 years ago after my daughter. In our busy shop we have a huge range of cut price perfumes, aftershaves and an extensive range of very low priced cosmetics. We stock a vast range of vegan and cruelty free make-up lies which are regularly not tested on animals. We are also stockists of big name brands like - NYX, L'Oreal, Maybelline, Rimmel, Laval, Maxfactor, Revlon, W7, Olay, and many, many more.

Since 2017 we introduced our very first Eyebrow and Nail Bar, situatated in our busy little shop in the heart of Newcastle. We now have two private upstairs beauty rooms and offer an array of treatments including, eyebrow waxing, threading and tinting, full male and female body waxing, gel polish manicures and pedicures, eyelash lift and tint and ear piercings, all at cheap competitive prices performed by our fully qualified technicians. 

Our range of perfumes and aftershaves includes Tabu, Pagan, Coty L’Aimant and Chique which are amongst our old favourites and best sellers. We also stock perfumes that compare to the latest best-selling designer labels. For example; how much is a bottle of Coco Mademoiselle for 55ml? We have a fantastic perfume called Miss Tutu which is only £5.50. If you are lucky enough to have the real thing why not keep it for evenings out and special occasions and wear our cheaper bottle for everyday use and see how much longer your expensive bottle lasts. Personally, I think why spend £50 - £100 more when you can pay £5 - £10 and spend the rest on something else (handbags and shoes spring to mind!).

At Ellen's Cosmetics all our staff pride themselves on the great, unbeatable, friendly customer service and our regular customers will tell you about the warm welcome you receive when you visit our shop. For over 18 years we have been located within The Grainger Market in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne. For our new customers, the Grainger Market is a Grade 1 listed building opened in 1935 and is Newcastle’s largest traditional covered market.We have now raised over £3,400 for our favourite charity Clic Sargent (based at the Childrens Ward within the RVI Hospital in Newcastle Upon Tyne) and we are very proud of the generosity of our staff and customers who help us to support them.

We are also the proud winners of “The Chronicle Cup” trophy. Sponsored by the Evening Chronicle this was created for the stallholder who had the best Christmas display and was awarded each year from 1931 until 1938 when it was locked away for safe keeping. The cup was rediscovered in November 2005 in the vault at the Co-Op Bank in Blandford Square and the tradition of awarding it was re-established by Newcastle City Council at that time.
