OCC, LORAC… I’ve heard these exist in Canada, but they’re like leprechauns! Haven’t found them in Saskatchewan, that’s for sure.

Milk, a skincare line from Australia by Olympic swimmer Michael Klim. Really could use their sunscreens (which are waterproof and dry touch similar to Peter Thomas Roth’s formula- only their’s is discontinued) and lotions for dry skin for my legs.
I mean they do ship to the US… but shipping isn’t worth $40. Best way to get it cheap is have a family buy it and send it over to the US. (shipping will be cheaper at least… or free shipping)

If there were Sleek Cosmetics & Motive Cosmetics store fronts in the USA, that’d be awesome! Have heard about both of them a lot, but I’m not really too fond of online shopping! 🙁

Nars, Tom Ford, Suqqu, D&G, Hourglass, Shu Uemura, Burberry, Le Metier, Edward Bess, Cle de Peau, OCC, MUFE, I could go on… We do have TF, but only at one store in the country and it’s not available online, unfortunately. Same for Hourglass and MUFE. Burberry is available in some stores, but only in some of the bigger cities, I believe. It is absolutely frustrating not being able to buy the brands I would like to buy.

Ha Ha. Are you kidding me? All the Japanese brands including Shu Uemura… Plus, all the brands that are sold at Ichibankao. I lust after all of them….Addiction, Suqqu, Three, RMK, Les Merveilleuses de Laduree, Jill Stuart, Kate, Lunasol, Majolica Majoca, Chikuhodo, all the brush brands. The only reason that I havent bought as much is because I want to swatch them. I want the eyeshadows, the lipsticks, foundation and everything in between. If I went to Japan, I would carry back a suitcase full.
The packaging, the colors, the nuances…..Estee Lauder and Company can take their products home.

I wish we could get ahold of Barry M and Models Own, two British brands known for their absolutely fantastic (and $5-$10!) nail polishes.

I also wish Asian color cosmetics were easier to track down. I’ve seen some skincare items around, but I’m really intrigued by Asian brands’ lip and face products!! So far I’ve found them via reputable sellers on eBay, but in person is always preferable.

I live in Switzerland.. it would be awesome if we could get too faced, eos, jergen’s and make up forever here!!

I live in the Netherlands and just recently Sephora moved away from all over the country. I would love to buy Urban Decay and Too Faced stuff but its only possible to buy online from the USA. Also i like tom ford beauty, collection 2000, make up academy and ELF. I bet you guys will laugh at our stores, by example maybelline is sold in a 1 meter by 1 meter stack. That’s all in every store of a budget brand. I would love to see bigger ones to buy even more.

Too Faced should come back and I’d also love to see Paul&Joe make up.
On the budget side, Wet ‘n Wild is on top of my list. Hard Candy wouldn’t be bad either. Germany has a great cheap brand called p2 which I’d love to see in my country. I live in the Netherlands btw. I’m glad we have easy access to Essence and Catrice, but anything else is either overpriced or not available.

Oh my list is huge and I am taking both for my home country Greece but also for Switzerland where I live now. I wish I could find Nars, Hourglass, Illamasqua, sleek, soap and glory, tarte, Bath and body works, Too Faced, Urban Decay (we don’t even have Sephora in Switzerland), Victoria Secret and don’t get me started on bath and body works and even more Asian brands…

Most of them. Some of it, like Zoya nail varnish I can buy online, but other things seem impossible to find, like Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash Mascara. Also, I don’t know of any good UK indie companies.

A few years ago I’d have said Inglot, but my wishes were granted! There are a lot of Asian brands, like Etude House and Tonymoly, with ridiculously fantastic packaging that should be easier to find (then again, I could probably just make a day trip of Little Tokyo or Koreatown and hunt them down).

Shur Uemura, Charlotte Tilbury Makeup & Max Factor. Although Shu u can order online. Christine u can order SUQQU through Selfridges now. They ship to the US.

Sleek, Bioderma, Barry M, and Collection (formerly Collection 2000)

I wish some of the asian products from brands already in the US would appear like L’Oreal’s cleansing oil and Maybelline’s pore filler

Right now, because of the Ambient Lighting Palette, I wish there was hourglass here. 🙁
I don’t understand why’d they make it LE.

I also wish the brands available here actually had everything.
