I have discovered that in the main genuine brand name cosmetics don't vary very much from place to place. Occasionally you might come across a special deal, giveaway or that sort of thing but shoppig retail either in the cities or duty free places, there is very little advantage.

Some time ago I discovered a web site which is a great deal cheaper consistently. I'm keeping it a secret but if you want to send me a PM I'll give you the name and you can have a look and compare.

I see that you are from the USA. I don't think you will find anywhere cheaper in KL.

On par with UK prices would be Isetan, the large department store at KLCC.

I found Clinique and Revlon far cheaper in US ( New York)

My dearly beloved tells me that LA and New York are still THE places for make up purchases.

Having said that, she did recently buy plenty in KL, both in town at the larger Malls and at the Airport Duty Free stores.

Good luck!

Loreal, Revlon (high street cosmetics) are available at pharmacies .... Guardian, Caring. These stores sometimes have sales and will offer a 10% discount.
