I have the discount for Make up Forever with them, its divine stuff and cheaper than the only other supplier in the Uk (As far as im aware) which is Make up Provisions in London.

Hope this helps! Should keep you busy for a while if nothing else lol
Thanks Claire, the reason I asked was because I saw how many people were talking about the discounts on MM. In america they do seem to get discount on a lot of brands, it just seems as though we don't get them here though.
Haha! We are treated unfairly though! Some of the brands don't even retail here, it comes down to companies importing the goods and by the time they have paid import tax on it they don't have the margins to offer us a discount!
I have signed up for my guru discount though, really chuffed about that!
Shame they dont do online shipping, im not going all the way to London for them, alough its an amazing brand & shop!!!
I actually just learned that you can call the shop and they do free shipping, you just use the website to choose what you want.
im not sure on their returns policy though, seeing as its hard to judge on screen what you need. you could call and ask?
