Since we all come from different countries & states, I was wondering what the costs of various cosmetics are & how the prices differ from the many countries & states...

I'll start with my country 1st (Singapore):

MAC- fluidlines- S$27(US$16)

Select coverup-S$25

Brush cleaning solution-S$18

Sheshido- mascara base- S$38 (I think this's cheaper in the states)

Undereye Concealers from high end brands like YSL, Dior-S$40(US$24)

Drugstore brands, foundations-S$13-$16

Dior Skinflash-S$50(I think in Australia its AUD$75!)

Most mascaras from high end brands-S$40-S$45

Feel free to add in anything brands or products to compare prices


Since most of u are from the US here, I think I'll add in this part in: S$10=US$6

CA$10=US$8.50

AU$10=US$7.5

GBP10=US$18

1000Jp yen=US$9

Hi sweety

You can get Bobbi Brown in Italy, one of our senior artist started out on an account there. If you could find out were it is you could get your orders shipped out to you- it would save on international shipping.

Lets see, recently I've purchased these stuff on local dept store in Osaka.

The prices are NOT included for the shipping fees and taxes.

Calculated twice, using Quote.com currency exchange tool on my computer

Stilla :

6 Pan Compact : ¥4410 ( around $38.74 USD and £22.01 GBP)

4 Pan Compact : ¥2550 (... $22.40 USD and £12.73 GBP)

Stila MU Brush Set : ¥12600 ( ..$110.70 USD and £62.90 GBP)

Mac:

Small Eyeshadow NATURALLY ECCENTRIC x4 : ¥4725( ... $41.51 USD and £23.58 GBP)

Pigment : ¥3780 ( ... $33.21 USD and £18.87 GBP)

Lipglass : ¥2205 (... $19.37 USD and £11.00 GBP)

I've never tried any Shu Uemura stuff, but I think it's the same expensive here and in overseas country.

IMO, cosmetics are expensive in all countries; We just have to be smart on shopping and it's too bad because I'm not smart enough. I get tempted easily.

Stila MU Brush Set : ¥12600 ( ..$110.70 USD and £62.90 GBP) £48 GBP

so you are paying a lot more, sorry x

LOL It's hurt Trisha!

Anyway, I guess it's import stuff so I'm also paying the international shipment fees.

It's really pain to go shopping in Japan, because you'll pay double price then you should.

We even have to pay for stuff we want to throw away, including TV or other interior stuff.

I just spent ¥3500 ($30.75 USD/£17.47 GPB) to toss away old TV today!
