    • 10 April 2014 / 9:33 PM

      You may be able to find it on eBay with a seller who ships internationally. Otherwise, you'll have to plan a visit to the States and stock up on all the goodies! Good luck!

    Oh that nars wind dancer is giving me life. I hope I can find a dupe for it cuz nars is a bit too pricey for me at the moment.
