Yesterday I visited Duty Free with my parents. I was super excited about this trip, because as you know, MAC makeup is already available there! I read online that the price difference between the US MAC and the Duty Free is very small. For example, eyeshadows are $14.50 in the US, but they're only $15.50 here. Not bad.
I got three MAC eyeshadows (All That Glitters, Wedge, Amber Lights), a blush for contouring (Harmony), and a nude lippie called Blankety. The eyeshadows were at $15.50 (P685 at current conversion rates), blushes at $21.50 (P950), and lipsticks at $17 (P751). Such a nice deal right? The makeup isn't cheap, but they're a lot less expensive than the mall price!
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that MAC eyeshadows are P870 at the mall. Lippies are at P900-ish, and blushes are P1,200.
Anyway, I also scored a Shu Uemura Art of Travel palette for $54 (P2,386). It has four eyeshadows, a cream liner and shimmery base, plus a full-sized Glow On blush. I tried everything and I'm impressed!
As usual, reviews to follow. Have a nice weekend girls!
