  1. I would LOVE to get my hands on the Sephora/ Kat von D collaborations, however there’s no longer a Sephora in the UK & the French site (which ships to the UK) doesn’t carry Kat von D. *sadface*

  2. Clara

    Urban Decay, Too Faced, NARS, Hourglass, Illamasqua

    And I wish many US-Brands would be sold at a fair Price. E.g. The MAC Blush brush costs double in Germany…

  3. Barry M and Catrice for the nail polishes, Bourjois for the foundation, Sleek for the eye palettes.

  4. Diana

    Japanese brands such as Suqqu and THREE!

  5. CeeBee

    I’m in New Zealand so Sleek, NYX, Milani, the entire Jordana range, Real Techniques and Sigma brushes, Wet N Wild, Barry M, Zoya, China Glaze, NARS (I think you can get this at Mecca Cosmetica in Auckland but it’s like $70 for a lipstick :-P) and BareMinerals.

    I order on-line a lot, LOL.

  6. Kris

    Bourjois. I know it is available online but I need to see it in person and swatch before I buy.

  7. Monica

    This is really a great question! Illamasqua! The Sephoras in D.C. only carry their nail polish and not the whole line.

  8. Grace

    INGLOT!!!! It is actually available in my country but not in my province :(

  9. Rosa

    Definitely Makeup Forever! You can order it online but its really not the same thing, you can’t test anything and get stuck with really high postage costs :(

  10. Haleemah

    Bourjois, Collection 2000, Topshop, Sleek, and Maxfactor

  11. Daisy

    TARTE in Brazil, pleeeease!!

  12. Geraldine

    I wish Nars brand was here in Bermuda!

  13. Aelita

    rmk, suqqu, illamasqua, jill stuart, tom ford, anny(nail polishes)

  14. Jennifer m

    I’m dying to get my hands on sleeks sweet cheeks blush trio. I’ve tried MUA for a custom purchase. I love sleeks blushes!

  15. Terri

    Suqqu. I want that face brush so, so badly!!!

  16. Up until Target opened a month ago in Montreal, brands such as NYX and Elf weren’t readily available, but they are now! Woo hoo! I’d also love to try products from MUA, Sleek, Etude House, Lioele and those Barry M polishes.

  17. Illamasqua – I know it’s just came to the bay in TO but across canada would be nice
    Tom ford
    Burberry
    Sleek
    Nyx, thebalm & elf more than just the odd rexall
    Charlotte tilbury

  18. Julie

    Wow!! I never realized how lucky I was to have the brands listed (except international-outside of US) within a 5 mile radius. I try to stay away from them, because I have a shopping PROBLEM! I would love to have easier access to some of the independent international brands I hear so much about!

  19. casey23

    Tarteeeeee!!!! And urban decay won’t be baad either!
    In terms of accesibility (or variety) i wish Loreal, Maybelline and Bourjois would bring their lovelies faster to Turkey!

    • casey23

      Ohhh! Also definitely Becca and Korres! Korres used to available, they had a few stores here but they left :(

  20. Irrielle

    I wish they sold in Russia Marc Jacobs, Tarte, Too Faced, Urban Decay, Butter London, Ladure Makeup, Lorac, Michael Kors Makeup, Physicians Formula, St.Tropez, Stila, Smashbox, Shu Uemura and many more…
    At least we have Nars coming soon, and already have beauty brands like Chantecaille, Tom Ford, By Terry, Burberry, Oribe, Dolce & Gabbana, OPI, China Glaze, Essie, LaRic, to say nothing of other global brands high and low (Chanel, Rimmel, Max Factor, YSL, Dior, Nivea, L’Oreal, Bourjois…). The brands sols locally in Moscow you can see on etoya dot ru and letu dot ru and bosco dot ru.

  21. Anat

    sleek, nyx, elf, sonia kashuk, sigma, SEPHORA, MUFE , too faced, nars

    I’d like Sephora to return to the UK but reading this has reminded me that we have Sleek, Bourjois, Collection 2000, Barry M and MUA so maybe I won’t moan too much about it! I think I can get ahold of most high end things that I want, it just involves travelling to the nearest city but I am only an hour away from London which is worth it to have access to all the brands I want!

  23. Robin

    There are a lot of great brands not available here in South Africa (I miss Urban Decay the most, followed by MUFE and weirdly enough, Cover Girl) but what really bugs are the high prices. Even drug store brands generally start at R100 which is about 10 USD. So when I am visiting home I STOCK UP like wild at Sephora and Ulta.

  24. doroffee

    Revlon, Wet n Wild, Nars, Tarte, Sigma. I’d rather NYX and nail polish brands like China Glaze were more accessible, either.

  25. TARTE, I’m canadian but I live in Belgium and I’m addicted to their blushes! I did win some new brands like catrice, biguine and Isadora but it’s just not worth tarte.

    I also wish lorac and hourglass were available. Oh and OCC. I also need to go to Amsterdam to get Inglot and to France to get Urban Decay and Nars. There is really nothing in Belgium. And OPI nail polishes are 14 euros. It’s madness.

  26. Adina

    Nars, Soap&glory, Kiko

  27. Sarah

    Tarte, Bobby Brown and NYX mostly, there’s a lot of stuff we don’t get aver here in Italy and I’ll never understand why :/

  28. I live in the UK and there are LOADS of fantastic brands which are readily available in the US but not at all in the UK. These include Milani, Tarte, Sonia Kashuk, Kat Von D, Michael Todd – to name a few.

    Brands which we can get in the UK from particular distributors (usually online, but not full ranges) include Wet & Wild, OCC, Sigma, theBalm, NYC and Lime Crime. When I want to get products from some of these brands, I often have to find them on eBay, as shipping costs from the US are just so high. Tarte don’t even ship outside the USA! Correct me if I’m wrong, but in this age of e-commerce, that’s just silly.

      I hear ya! I’d love to buy Milani and cle de peau cosmetics but I have to say that us lot in the UK are pretty damn lucky to have access to most of the brands that others don’t.

  29. Leslie

    Sleek & Max Factor (I sure miss Max Factor!)

  30. I would have to go for Kiko x

  31. Liss

    In Colombia we can’t get most international brands, such as Nars, Urban decay, Benefit. Aldo I eish we could find Bourjois, i’ve seen it in the duty free at the airport, but in actual stores we can’t get it

  32. I wish Rouge Bunny Rouge was available in brick and mortar stores here in the US, and Inglot was in more stores. It’s in only one Macy’s in my city, and the selection is somewhat limited. I miss Bourjois, too – I remember when it was in Sephora…

  33. Emme889

    Definitely Sleek! Also, Catrice, Missha.

  34. fatma

    Im from UAE,
    NARS and Stella

  35. leilab

    I live in UAE (Dubai) I wish NARS, Tarte, LORAC, Stila, Kiko, also we don’t find all the products (or limited edition) of the other classic brand like MAC, Bobbi Brown the news products comes very lately after their launch in USA or Europe !

    I am also French and in France (Paris) this no LORAC, TARTE, STILA, CARGO … and so on and we can’t find in France (at sephora) the same palette or new products as USA

    Bye

    • leilab

      And forget some brand for France and Dubai Sonia Kashuk, Kat Von D, OCC, Wet and Wild, Milani

      I am lucky in Dubai I can find NYX but we don’t have the new products and they are often older and the corner are messy and they don’t have stock : (

  36. Rie-Joyce

    I want to have a SIGMA store here in manila! Soooo badly!! And also urban decay, lorac, kardashian kollector, anastasia beverly hills, cartier and other uk products :-)
    Idk yet if there’s bare minerals already.
