A few examples...
Lipsticks - £11 to £12
Lipglasses - £10.25 to £11.50
Eyeshadows - £9.75 to £11
Blush - £14 to £16
DAZZLEGLASS - £12 to £14 -- what I think is the most ridiculous of all! A lot less product than a normal lipglass!
I noticed a few days ago that MAC COSMETICS in the UK have increased their prices AGAIN (they already have sometime earlier this year)! I must say this was totally unexpected, and this leaves me a bit gutted.
I have been letting off getting a few products for ages, since I always thought I could get them later anyway - especially the ones in the permanent line. I've also been looking forward to the possibilities of getting stuff from the Color Craft line, which wasn't available until AFTER the increase!
I must say this is really ridiculous. MAC Cosmetics UK prices are a bit high already, eg. compared to MAC Cosmetics in the US, but why do they further increase their prices when MAC USA doesn't?
I really don't get it... Do they expect people to spend more on cosmetics in this time of crisis? But no... that's not the only possible outcome of this move.
This price increase has slapped me awake to reality that MAC IS an expensive brand. Although I do love it and their products have amazing quality, I still can't deny that fact. I realize I've been spending much money on what is JUST makeup, so hopefully this price increase will deter me from making more purchases, and encourage me to SHOP MY STASH! That way I can save more money for the more important things later on, and still be able to create looks my goodies won't go neglected. I hope other people would see it that way too. =)
... either that or I buy my MAC elsewhere instead of MAC UK like in the US, or get them from the Duty Free shops. :)
