I've always heard of Sephora but I haven't had the "pleasure" of buying from them. But I was looking through the clearance/sale items and was very impressed. I'ma visit a Sephora in Germany and compare their face makeup with MACs.
Here are some items I'd probably buy:
Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil Mini Refillable Buffing Brush (Original Price $26), $22
Bare Escentuals Retro Lounge Eye Kit (Original Price $24), $13.50
Stila Paint Your Pout Red - The Talking Palette ($60 Value) (Original Price $45), $15
