Armani Price Inflation, much?

I am obsessed with Armani at the moment (although I think I’ve reached a point where there’s nothing else I really want on the counter for now. Do you get to that point too with some brands?)

I did see this gorgeous brush set – $100 on the Armani USA site.

It includes the mini blender brush, mini concealer brush, mini blush brush, mini eye shader brush, mini contour brush.

Price on my counter? £80.

My exchange rate calculator tells me it should be more like (even with the £ crappy exchange rate these days) £60.76 (to be exact).

Talk about mark up! No I don’t think I will be forcing someone to buy this now. I’ve noticed that Armani’s USA prices are a*little* bit too close to UK prices. There is something called an exchange rate, cha know!

What continental price mark ups get on your nerves?

    I get that with Canadian prices all the time, it drives me cray so I tend to just pick up those items when I’m in the states now

    I get really annoyed when I see drugstore items being marked up to the extreme where I live. L’oreal mascara for 16-18 euros, when I know that in the US it’s around $10, or in the UK for around 10 pounds. Even MAC or high end cosmetics have an insane mark-up. I refuse to shop at those prices. Thank God for internet shopping and Duty free!
