hi cloudy! spanish curls answered your Qs perfectly!! she is obsolutely right that everything costs more than the US

if you like to play in cosmetics departments, the places you must visit are selfridges, liberty and harvey nichols. selfridges especially has a HUGE range of cosmetics. i love it there!! it's on oxford street, the west end of the street. selfridges have all the regular ranges plus benefit, mac, smashbox... i know that harrods have bloom.

liberty has more unusual ranges - philosophy makeup, which i can't find anywhere else (fab lipsticks!) and aveda, nars, b&b, face stockholm, etc...
