Definitely. A good value is a good value. I've been very satisfied purchasing from the E-Store.
There is a method to the distribution channels in general. The manufacturer offers a specific range of makeups and the affliate vendors typically market a grouping of their own specific
makeups. Often makeups which are specifically tailored to the vendor's regional markets. They don't overlap a great deal with Carminas E-Store offerings.
Thus everybody gets something they want out of the deal......Carmina can offer their makeups at lowest possible cost because there is no middle man. The affiliated vendors order special makeups in bulk and offer them to the public at prices still less than those of individual MTOs (because they were made in bulk quantities.) And because the affliate vendors are located around the world the consumer has more access to try on shoes before purchasing.
You, the consumer, have the choice!
It's all good!
