Brands like Urban Decay, and Covergirl don’t come here (Taiwan) so it’s annoying, what Asian brands do you like Christine?

NARS has a web shop for Europe and they do shipping to Sweden as well as to other EU countries. http://www.narscosmetics.eu

You can shop Benefit cosmetics from their web site,shipping to Europe is very cheap with them.I bought a bunch of stuff last month and shipping to Denmark was less then $8.

Definitely more Asian brands! There are places that sell them, but I wish they were more available at larger retailers, rather than small little shops. Larger retailers stock up more, and some provide samples. Most of these little shops I went to didn’t have many samples, so I’m weary of trying them (those BB creams!).

Also, I heard the Art Deco eye primer is amazing! They have it in Europe, but I have yet to come across it in California/US! In addition, I wish certain hair products were more readily available at B&M (brick and mortar) stores, but I often have to end up buying it online or a exclusive beauty supply stores. For example, TIGI Bed Head’s Hard to Get texturizing paste. I love it, but it really IS hard to get! And it’s quite pricey too ;/ Good thing I have connections *wink wink*

Aww thank you for the offer :] I really want to test it in person though -along with other cosmetics in their line!

I’m really thankful for what I do have access to though. I wish products could have universal pricing, such as all Mac makeup with standard prices across countries! I know there’s shipping costs and all, but damnnnn some of it is ridiculous! I’ll never understand why Mac is more expensive in Canada, or how Shiseido is cheaper in HK than Japan….

becca,by terry,dolce&gabana,burberry and ellis fas.you can order them online like any other brand but its hard to guess what color you like cause the swatches online are terrible.i am all about texture and finish,gotta look at them in person.

2nd on Becca and Dolce & Gabbana! i would LOVE to sample the colors/products from these lines in stores. I always want the Becca foundation but don’t dare to guess what color I’d wear to order it!

Call your local Dolce and Gabbana counter. They dont give us premade samples but I’ve found a way to make homemade ones. Its not the most beautiful thing ever but its a great way to try a few products.

Le Metier de Beaute! We don’t have that in Canada… sadly.

Also the Japanese brands! I buy them online but it gets really expensive, and most of the time we have no idea what we’re in for so sometimes it doesn’t turn out well at all.

Living in Australia, I’d love to see Urban Decay (shadows and liners), Cle de Peau (lipstick + Concealer), Jill Stuart (Jelly Eyeshadow N), Caron (for the beautiful perfumes and powders) and SkinFood (Skincare!)…
Have to stock up whevener I go overseas!!!

I want Cle De Peau, Make Up Forever… Edward Bess, Le Metier de Beaute, Urban Decay… Kate Somerville.

I wish Fyrinnae was sold in stores… I know it’s a really small brand, but I’d love to try it and I hate ordering online. Oh, and I’d love to get my hands on some brands they sell only in England, especially their drugstore brands.

I wish I’d have access to US brands a lot more. Urban Decay, Too Faced for example, or a Sephora store. And brands like GlamourDollEyes, Fyrinnae and m*a*d minerals.
