I would especially love to have another venue to buy Armani! I'm fine going to Holt's, but it's hours aren't as convenient as Sephora's.
I finally got a good look at the Armani cosmetics section. All the tester products are nicely displayed but I kept wondering where they actually kept items for purchase... Like there's a hidden drawer system I don't know how to use. I also noticed a Shu Uemura display and drooled over the lipsticks and eyelashes. It seems that there is a "high-end" corner with Shu, Armani, YSL, Dior, Hourglass, Givenchy and Guerlain grouped together.

I recommend a visit to the store, maybe before more crowds come in and make it all disheveled. LOL I can't imagine how much upkeep/cleaning the staff have to do. So many people get sloppy with testers, it's a shame.

Ddi they literally move to the other side? lol
And yes their is a Make Up For Ever boutique they set these up in other major cities.... It just means the eaton centre location is going to get more crazy (always packed)
They almost all of the colours they'll be carrying in stock when I went in on Tuesday, but quite a few shades were out of action when I went in today (Black Dahlia being one of them). There also seems to be a spot for Nylon *gasp*. I'm hoping it shows up so I can snag one.
Yup, the store is basically across the way, in the old Harry Rosen spot... I think that's what used to be there.... LOL
It was pretty nuts there today, though the cashier line went pretty quickly. I really wish they would put more space between product displays. There was a lady who parked her stroller (with child) right infront of the Illamasqua stuff while she tried out blushes. There was barely enough room to get past the stroller. I was a bit annoyed since I wanted to check out Skin Base foundation and cream pigments but it's not like there was room for the stroller anywhere else. I think she's lucky that her child didn't get into any of the testers and make a mess, all those really bright lipsticks were within arms reach...
