You may remember a couple of weeks ago I bought quite a few Laura Mercier items. I have seen a few YouTube videos where people have talked about the Eye Basics in Wheat. Eye Basics are eye primers that you can get in a number of colours.
When I was getting my makeup done the girl used "Wheat" and I was delighted because that is the one that I had heard about. As you can see on my skin it basically looks like a concealer.
Blended out there is a slight sheen, I have been wearing this every day since I bought it. I have been enjoying using it and it does exactly what it is supposed to. The other day I checked my receipt and saw that the price of this was €30.00. THIRTY FREAKING EURO FOR AN EYE PRIMER. I couldn't believe it. Why did I pay that much for a primer, I mean its a nice primer but THIRTY EURO. Laura Mercier should wear a balaclava and a shotgun - daylight robbery-. I decided to have a little look on the Laura Mercier website to see if she did indeed wear a balaclava (she doesn't) and noticed that the Eye Basics are $24.00 hmmmm so that would convert to about €17.00 even with our outrageous sales tax it should probably at most be about €20.00, so why are we being charged €30.00?? I do want to support Irish Shops but when the prices are this high I just can not. I understand that this is probably a Euro wide price but it drives me BONKERS that we are getting ripped off all the time. Laura Mercier I bid you adieu.
Do any companies drive you mad with their pricing, Is Euro the worst zone to be in price wise... Lets talk this out..
