Wish brands like makeup forever, urban decay, laura mercier and Jo Malone were more readily available in Australia !

Oh man I WISH we had Urban Decay in Australia SO much! Tarte also. Those are my top two! I’d be swimming in them if a) I could afford to and b) if they were more readily available.

RMK, Lunasol, Etude House, Kuan Yuan Lian
there are lots of Asian brands that I like but it’s hard to find in the states.
by the way I usually purchase it on sasa.com (be ware that it ships internationally = slow)

I wish Bourjois was back in the US (while it’s available through ASOS, it’s only a limited selection of products, from what I can see). Also: Sleek, Collection (formerly Collection 2000), Catrice (seems like they’ve got some great products at very affordable prices), Kiko.

Totally agree about each and every one of those brands! Sleek ships to the US, but I wish there was a store that I could go to, and that that the Neon palette was okay’d to be shipped here.

rimmel, sonia kashuk, sigma, sephora, inglot, illamasqua, occ, sugarpill, lime crime.. we have to order online just to have these makeups. πŸ™

Urban Decay, No.7, Boots, Suqqu. Particularly the first two, I really wish I could try out Urban Decay products before buying them on BeautyBay.

Ditto. I’m in Los Angeles, and the only retailer is Sephora, and even within a 25 mile radius, 3 stores even carry the brand. On top of that, the actual selection is minimal, and most items are never in-stock. Yet, *every* Sephora seems to have HUGE shelves dedicated to brands like Dior, LancΓ΄me, etc., brands that I could get at nearly *any* other department store (also, the shelves always seem fully stocked, which makes me think they’re not such big sellers…). There was a time I looked to Sephora for more unique products, but over the last couple of years, I’ve found myself shopping there less & less…

Urban Decay!! I live in Greece and the Sephora here have brought some palettes like Naked 2 and Smoked (but not the original Naked grrrr), but that’s about it. I wish they brought the single eyeshadows and these new lipsticks, they look awesome! Thank God MAC’s here though πŸ™‚

A lot of the Asian brands that have cute packaging and a few European ones. I don’t know the names but I’ve seen them on blogs. Oh Barry M… that’s one I wish the US has. I miss Max Factor too.

Oh gosh, where do I start?! I’m in Australia so we miss out on a lot. NYX, Sleek (although so easy to buy online) Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Lorac, Deborah Lippmann, Makeup Forever etc
I can buy most of these brands online fairly easy but sometimes it’s just not worth it with extra shipping costs/times.

…I feel your pain <3 =(
I have a bias towards Swedish brands since my fiance is Swedish, so a brand I would really love to try is Isadora, I've virtually tried everywhere and just cannot get my hands on it. =( I'd love to have better access to Face Stockholm too (Dermstore dot com seems to be the only place for international purchases), and some Japanese/Asian brands like Suqqu, Three, Lunasol, Addiction etc..

Sleek and Suquu are two I’ve seen a lot about I’d be very interested in, also your recent posts about hakhudo brushes has been really interesting.

I’ve just ordered Sleek makeup online & I’m in Canada! I couldn’t believe it! It should get here soon πŸ™‚ We have even less accessibility to some brands in Canada, definitely less than the States. I’m in Northern Canada too but at least there are quite a few awesome sites online. The Sephora site is always good, same with the Saks Fifth Ave sited for higher end stuff. I’ve also found some good Canadian sites like devucosmetics.com for Sigma brushes or theBalm makeup, and MAC is good too of course. I usually try to find places that have free shipping, or use lots of free shipping promos like MAC, or at the very least a decent/ cheap flat rate. The down side to practically only internet accessibility (other than making a quick plane trip south…) is no swatching in person, and foundation can be a guessing game (but thank you Christine for the matrix! What a life saver!!).

I wish Bourjois was easier to get. I can find it online, but I wish I could get it in store. I could deal with having better access to Illamasqua as well.

Urban Decay! Tarina Tarantino, Tarte, Kat von D, and probably a few others. But mostly I just wish the prices were the same as the USA.
