I wish we could get the Neutrogena make up in the UK, we only get their skincare range here. I’d also love it if we had a Sephora here again. We had them here for a few years and then they left the UK completely and their website doesnt ship to the UK.

I’d love better access to some UK brands, especially Sleek. I know they’re pretty easy to get a hold of, but I don’t like not being able to see and handle a product before purchasing.

I’d love to have access to Inglot.
I’ve heard so many good things about them, but sadly they aren’t available in my country and there is no online retailer for their stuff.

I have plenty of access to Asian cosmetics in my area so I’m not worried about that. I really want to try some Canadian and UK brands though!! Luckily I’m going to Canada next summer so I can stock up on Canadian beauty goodies while I’m there.

Hourglasse, Tarte, Deborah Lippman, Tarina Tarantino…there are so many which I can’t get here in Paris! 🙁

Sweden is an underdevelopted country when it comes to beauty. But it is getting better. We now have one Sephora-store and more are coming. But european Sephora do not sell all brands that are available in the US. For instance Sephora by OPI and Revlon… Beautyproducts are much more expensive in Sweden than in the US. Grrr…

I’m in Singapore, so I will offer an Asian perspective! I would like to try LMdB and Chantecaille, both of which are not available in Singapore. I would love to try some of the niche Japanese brands who have not made its ways out of the country either – Addiction, Three, Chicca. 🙂

NARS is only available in a few european countries so i don’t have much access to it. I have ordered a couple of their products online, however, i really want to try the sheer glow foundation but i don’t want to risk ordering it without ever seeing it in person, particularly when it’s such a pricey product.

there’s really nice brand of mascaras in japan called fairy drops. Aya Yasuda, a japanese sports anchor based in LA, supposedly wanted to create those doll eyed looks which are the craze in japan. really wanted to get a hand of those mascaras 🙂

I wish Urban Decay was available in Australia. I’ve ordered it on eBay, but still. Illamasqua is available, but not in my city, and as far as I’m aware Make Up For Ever isn’t available. I don’t think I’d buy any at that price point but having Cle de Peau and Guerlain around would be good too. It’s also annoying that some Mac collections are North America only, or get a ridiculous markup in Australia.

If you don’t mind ordering online there is,

Ebay for certain brands like:

Korean Cosmetics = Aritaum, Baviphat, Etude House, Innisfree, Lioele, Laneige, Missha, Mizon, SK-II, Skin79, Skinfood, Sulwhasoo, The Face Shop, Tony Moly

Japanese Cosmetics Brands = Canmake, Dariya, Jill Stuart, JuJu, Kanebo, Kate, Koji Kose, Obagi, SANA, Shiseido, Shu Uemura, YS Beauty

Missha and Skinfood both have US websites to order from. Skinfood also has a store in San Francisco. If you go to San Francisco, there are a couple Asian markets that sell these cosmetics too if online purchases sounds iffy.

OHH and SK-II is a very high end cosmetic/skincare brand which is available through Sephora and bloomingdales has a counter too

Well, we don’t get a tonne of brands in Australia that you can get most everywhere else. Urban Decay, Wet n Wild, Make Up For Ever, Milani, Zoya, the list goes on and on and on.


This will make Finland sound really bad but here it goes.

I would love to get my hands on Products from Stila, Benefit,Smashbox, Asian BB creams ( of course), Tarte…
We do have Sephora over here… Shu Uemura we do have over here! I almost forgot? Almay make up remver pads!! I always stock up when in US.

Christine can you give links to asian cosmetic brands that ship internationally, if there’s any.
Thanks 🙂

if you don’t mind the high mark up you can try ichibankao.com, there is a wide range but the mark up is pretty significant (around 40% more i guess). i nearly caved and ordered some suqqu eye palettes but i decided against it…
you can also try custom orders if you can find them online, they’re normally run by bloggers or beauty fanatics but most aren’t well publicized though they’re reliable…i’m currently placing an order at custompurchasecosmetics.wordpress.com that ends in 2 days. you can also try that if you see this on time
but if you have a specific limited edition collection in mind/want a wider range/all year round website and don’t mind the mark up i guess you can give ichibankao a try!

does anyone know of others? sorry this is such a long comment!

Shu Uemura was so much fun to have when it was in the U.S….a candy color of selection….now what is online is just plain dull…It used to be color galore. Another brand now gone downhill with the acquisition from Loreal. Mr. Uemura was classical yet modern.

I would like to get the Asian brands like Jill Stuart, Majorca and all those brands that the Muse from Musings of a Muse have. Gosh, I envy her having friends overseas to get the products for her. I wish I live in Hong Kong. That is where those fabulous brands are.

I would like to see all those French brands that are likely in Lafayette Galleria (I believe that is the name.)

I live in Hong Kong and there are a lot of brands we don’t have! I would love to see Hourglass, Inglot, Illamasqua, Rouge Bunny Rouge and Suqqu here. And also drugstore brands like NYX and Wet‘n’Wild…

KIKO Milano cosmetics! They have the most amazing nail polishes ever! Their makeup is top quality! Very reasonably priced. When I was in Italy, I bought as much as I possibly could at Roma Termini train station. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!!

My, where to begin?!? We don’t even have Sephora in our country (though *every single* neighboring country does…thankfully!) so you kinda get the picture…

I would love to try some OCC, Tarte, Inglot, Hourglass, Illamasqua, Becca and Clé de Peau. I know some of these brands ship internationally but I’d love to see the colors, textures etc. up close first. That’s a big part of the makeup experience for me 😀
