It's interesting what you were told about Illamasqua, because at the same Sephora (I'm assuming- the one at Pointe Claire) I was told last year that they wouldn't be carrying Illamasqua because the sales in the US hadn't been strong enough. I sometimes wonder if anyone outside their marketing department knows the actual story.
yep, definitely was the pointe-claire branch. i don't want to slag the staff there, because i've been helped by some very nice sales people, but maybe they really don't know the answer...
i know that canada does have some laws that make it more complicated for cosmetics companies...e.g.they make them jump through certain hoops-- a makeup artist at the nars in the bay downtown told me the new nars tinted moisturizer is supposedly spf 25 or something, but it doesn't meet one of our standards, so they aren't allowed to label it so.
in any case, i was at the sephora in ottawa last week, and the sales assistant helping me said june 1st...and i was thrilled!!!! but maybe my wallet wasn't...
