Stuff on the mac website is cheaper but unsure once sales tax is added if it will be that much cheaper...I was looking at Mac and sephora as I have a friend going to the states and was going to get her to get me stuff but prob won't bother as I don't need anything desperately and not worth stocking up to save a few quid
Not everything cheaper. My friend went a few years ago and was shocked that Clarins was more expensive (she went for skin care).
Might be useful to price up what you want here then compare when you get there(with the additional tax). Have a nosey on make up alley for hair care reviews as there are probably loads of hair stuff we don't get here.
I am sure that the high street brands are mostly cheaper, plus there will be stuff we cannot get here except via mail.
Clinique is a bit cheaper, especially if you go to Macy's and you get the 10% off tourist voucher. Mac is slightly cheaper but I didn't find benefit cheaper at all. I found I was better buying in duty free and saving my dollars for clothes and handbags!
