    Hi All, 
    Our only distributor of Ben Nye makeup has gone out of business. The website says I can order from one of three online stores. Has anyone used these stores? Any advice on which one ships quickly, best prices, etc. 
    Thanks,

    There are retail stores that have websites.  I would start with them, so you know who you are ordering from.  Caufield's in Louisville, KY would be a major store in your area that carries all the brands and they ship quickly.  Performance Studios in Nashville has gone to a website only and they carry all the brands as well.

    I grew up in Louisville and shopped at Caulfield's as a high school Theatre student! I had forgotten all about them. Thank you for the reminder. Unfortunately, Performance changed management and the service is horrendous! I just can't spend my money there after 30 years of doing so. Thanks for the reminder about Caulfield's!

    We have ordered almost all our stage makeup for many years from Norcosco in Minneapolis - and I stress that city.  I've had the experience of ordering from one of their other locations only to slow things up because the order is then transferred to Minneapolis.   Hope this helps . . .
