SIGN THE PETITION!! ILLAMASQUA: FIGHT FOR A FAIR BEAUTY PRICE IN AUSTRALIA!

I really wanted to make this quick post after watching Wayne from gossmakeupartist on youtube put out a video regarding the topic of ridiculously inflated prices in Australia's beauty market. If you are a beauty lover in Australia, you know how expensive cosmetic products are here in comparison to other places around the world such as the US and UK. It's unfair to us! Why should Australians pay 61% more for the exact same product in the UK?

Like my paint skillz? LOL

Illamasqua has noticed our frustration and has set up a campaign to make a stand against the global giants of cosmetics. They need our help to make this happen so please sign this petition: http://www.illamasqua.com/fairpriceforbeauty/

For more info about the campaign: http://www.illamasqua.com/fairpriceforbeauty/about-the-campaign/

Watch the campaign film here: http://www.illamasqua.com/fairpriceforbeauty/campaign-film/

And here is Wayne's video! PLEASE WATCH and read all the info in the video's downbar. Thankyou Wayne so much for bringing awareness to this topic! <3


I urge all of you reading this to spread the word. Tell your friends and family to sign this petition too. Share this post, share Wayne's video etc and hopefully us Aussies won't be paying outrageous prices for cosmetics anymore!

Thanks so much for reading!

  1. I'm so happy this is getting more attention, I've been ranting about this for a few years now!
    I will be definitely signing this petition also.

    I also wrote a blog post about this a few months ago, showing actual website prices and the differences, including Jurlique - which is an Australian website, charging more for us Aussies, even though the product is made here!

    If anyone is interested they can check it out :)

  2. It really is ridiculous. Australia's prices are higher but Perth's prices are even higher than in other states. Not sure if it's the same thing for cosmetics but daily products and food is. It really is not right! Thanks for sharing :) I have signed the petition
