AdvantagesCheaper prices

Disadvantagesnot many

I prefer Chanel over Collection 2000, however my bank balance (or lack of balance) would prefer the latter. Direct Cosmetics is diamond of a website with one huge bonus for me. There is up to 90% of every item they sell! My first thought was Yippee!!, I have found my Mothership (or Mother shop), but ..." Read review
