SIDE NOTE: I have a feeling that they realized they can make more money buying "leftovers" or "testers" or "whatevers", and selling them for cheaper, than to try and market the brand as a high-end cosmetics line (a-la MAC, which are very successful so far, AFAIK).
Of course, they don't have things like the HD collection (too expensive to import, according to their manager), and the 5-color concealer palette, but they seemed to have a nice selection of lipsticks and lipstick palettes, pencils, foundations (not in every shade), powders, cleansers, and pretty much everything a girl needs to get a good start.
There's always that fear of "OMG am I buying a cheap knock-off that'll turn my face green with purple spots, a-la Ann of Green Gables???". But I braved myself, and ended up buying quite a bit, to test out the different types of products that the store had.
I began researching places like the Sephora website (which is the main place to buy MUFE), to see if the prices are *really* that different and if the products match up in look and feel, and when I got to Paris in April I will definitely take some things with me to Sephora and compare. Fool me once, I will avenge!
I will start posting reviews of each product type I got, and hopefully it'll help some of you decide whether to brave yourselves to this place, regardless of their trustworthiness level.
I'll be happy to hear if anyone bought stuff from there, and what your experience has been!
