UPDATE 30/8/12 - WE WON!!! Illamasqua has published a press release stating that as of September 1st 2012 that they will be DROPPING their prices here in Australia, bringing them into line of those in the UK. Thank you to all who signed the petition to help this change and thank you to Illamasqua and Myer.
If you didn't see my post or others or not even heard about the campaign, where have you been? Australians, men and women pay up to 61% more in some cases for products compared to the likes of the UK. I am from the UK and feel the price impact everyday from my move here. Well you now have until the 24th August to be part of this movement! Need encouragement here is a simple example of the price difference.
Did you know that an Illamasqua nail polish in the UK is £13.50, here in Australia it is $34.00 - same size, same packaging, mad isn't it! Using a regular online exchange site not taking into account taxes etc £13.50 equates to $20.25, that in the most simple terms is $13.75, basically you could buy two in the UK and still have some change!
How can you make your impact -
- Sign the petition yourself, if you have not done so already by the 24th August
- Get at least 5 friends, family, next door neighbour etc ask them to follow your lead and sign the petition
- Sign, share and spread the word every where you can via these links
This petition will be taken to all these relevant organisations, the people who make the decisions to encourage them to join, take a stand and allow people who live in Australia to benefit from the prices others benefit from in the UK, USA and in other countries. So what you waiting for, get everyone you know in on this campaign - be part of the beauty pricing revolution here in Australia!
YOUR COUNTRY NEEDS YOU!!
