Sure ittyreen, Macy's, Dillards etc. It should be all the major department stores that carry Lancome and EA.

D Oro doesn't EL have a choice of warm or cool too? I thought I saw both somewhere on this board. I might have been wrong though.

This is what they show on their site. Maybe with this one there is no choice. There you must make a fragrance purchase. Free shipping though. $58.50

MissRose722 , This is off topic, but, I was wondering if you could help me with some info regarding the Pippa bag. Can you tell me if you had any issues with US Customs when you ordered? Did you order direct from the Modalu websight ? If you did pay customs, how much? Sorry this is off topic, but I really need to order the Pippa for my daughter for the holidays and want to be an informed customer before purchasing from their sight.

Thanks so much for the info, have a great day!

Thanks D'Oro. I already have all 3 of the EL lipsticks from previous gifts with purchase and that is from a few years ago. Bummer.

Hi gmomj - I ordered the Pippa bag direct from the Modalu website, which is based in London. Modalu charged me for the price of the bag, plus shipping. About a week after I received the bag, I received an invoice in the mail from U.S. Customs for approximately $42.00. On the Modalu website, they mention that shipping costs outside the UK does not include Customs fees, and to contact your local Post Office regarding the amount of the fee. Therefore, the separate invoice from U.S. Customs. Please note that I automatically received the invoice from U.S. Customs without contacting them. The Pippa is a classic beauty, and the color selection is great. Good luck shopping, and have a great day too!

Is EA really made in China? I was not aware of this. I really wanted to try the EA Holiday Collection.

There is another EL Blockbuser with a Red Case however I am not sure if it will be in any stores here unless Saks, Bloomingdales or Neiman Marcus get it. All the other Department stores(Dillards, Belk, Bonton, Nordstrom, Macys,etc) have the Navy. The first three stores have not posted it on their respective websites for purchase. Here is a look at it in the red.

  • The Makeup Artist Professional Color Collection

This extraordinary collection includes:
DELUXE EYE SHADOW COMPACT with 18 Best-Selling Pure Color EyeShadow shades in Ivory Slipper, Polished Platinum, Pink Flash, Sugar Cube, Sugar Biscuit, French Vanilla, Wild Truffle, Amazing Grey, Candy Crave, Lilac Whimsy, Nude Fresco, Sepia Sand, Lavish Mink, Amethyst Spark, Berry Burst, Flirty Lilac, Hot Cinnamon and Moroccan Mint (0.45g each)
CHEEK PALETTE with 4 Best-Selling Pure Color Blush shades in Blushing Nude, Pink Tease, Peach Passion and Pink Ingenue (1.71g each)
• 3 PURE COLOR CRYSTAL Lipsticks (full-size) in Crystal Baby, Crystal Pink and Passion Fruit

Also just an fyi EL's Blockbuster is a Purchase with Purchase on Nordstrom.com. They aren't requiring a fragrance purchase. And I remember there being an issue with the website where you could actually purchase the Lancome "Beauty Box" and EL "Blockbuster" outright without adding a purchase to your cart.

As a FYI, I checked the packaging of the new EA Blockbuster and most of the cosmetics were made in either the USA or in Canada then assembled in China. The pressed powder, as well as the lip and eye pencils were made in China.
