About Us

Ellen's Cosmetics has been established for 20 years and was renamed 10 years ago after my daughter. In our busy little shop we have a huge range of cut price cosmetics, perfumes and aftershaves. We have a big range of very low priced cosmetics, regular lines which are not tested on animals. We stock big brand cosmetics at great prices (which are not seconds or damaged in any way) and we obtain our fantastic prices by constantly searching for the best deals for our customers. Our product range includes lines by: Almay, L'Oreal, Maybelline, Constance Carroll, Laval, Leichner,Rimmel,Revlon, W7, Olay, And many more.

Coming in 2017!!! We are introducing our first Eyebrow and Nail Bar, situatated in our busy little shop in the heart of Newcastle. We will be offering everything from quick manicures to full sets of acrylic and gel nails at cheap competitive prices performed by a fully qualified technician. As for our eyebrow bar, we are Newcastles first salon to introduce Marvelbrows. Marvelbrow is a unique, scientific approach to brow shaping that corrects unruly, over-tweezed, greying and misshapen brows. No set of Marvelbrows are the same as they are completely unique to you as a person. We will also be offering other eyebrow treatments such as waxing, threading, tinting and many more all done by our very own qualified eyebrow technician Hannah. We hope you are as excited about this as we are and hope to see you at our salon soon. 


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 £3.99. 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 £30-£50 more when you can pay £3-£5 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 15 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 £2320 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.
In 2013 we are launching our online shop and we hope that customers will buy their favourites online as well as coming to see us in Newcastle.
