Viva Illamasqua! Please sign this petition

August 4, 2012


I love Illamasqua, not only do I think they have the best lipsticks known to man, but they are taking a stand against unfair prices in Australia by changing the retail price of their products to reflect the UK prices. I have only ever bought Illamasqua online because it is extremely expensive in store, with the in store prices being over double what other countries pay. Not only is it unfair, but if Australians like me need to keep buying products online, our economy also loses. If Illamasqua can take this stand, then it might encourage other companies to do it too. Illamasqua lipsticks are currently around $40, if they reduce them, I know I would much prefer to spend $24 on a Illamaqua lipstick than $34 on a MAC lipstick.

Please go to http://www.illamasqua.com/fairpriceforbeauty/ to sign the petition

For all the people who say "what about conversion rates?", 1 British pound = 1.48 Australian dollars, and currently the Australian dollar is worth the same as the US dollar, in fact over the past 10 years the Australian dollar has been stronger than the US dollar! But for some reason we have to pay $22 for lip butters, but people in the US can get them for as low as $6. Thats not fair!

  1. This is so great. It sucks paying double what other countries pay. I buy a lot of products online as well due to that. I will definitely be signing this petition. Hopefully other brands in Aus will follow suit!

  2. This is such a great campaign. After I saw gossmakeupartist's video on this I signed the petition in a heartbeat. I've actually never tried anything by Illamasqua, but if the prices decreased, you bet your ass I'd pick something up!

    On the topic actually, do you have any lippy recommendations?
