Buying cosmetics at Manchester Airport

I will be travelling from Manchester next month and I am planning on taking advantage of the duty free to buy some of my favourites.

I had a look on the website but the range is very limited (ie no Chanel N5, which I find very strange, small Bare Minerals range etc.)

Does anyone know, am I right to assume that this is just the range available for click and collect, and there will be more choice in the shop?

I went through duty free last week and it didn't feel particularly cheap.
There were bare minerals 'starter packs' for about £30.

Depending where you're going you might be better trying Sephora at your destination?

Depends which terminal you fly from. T1 has the best selection by far, but if you're used to the selection at Heathrow 5 for example, you might be disappointed.

There's definitely a MAC and Bobbi Brown counter, off the top of my head.

It's terminal 2.

I have looked online at the US prices and the things I want are no cheaper over there, so I was hoping for some duty free savings
