Which Beauty Brands Do You Wish You Had Better Access To?

We did a post a while back about local beauty brands you love that are not widely available outside of your area.

This time, I want to know which brands are NOT easily available in your region that you would love to get your hands on.

I once did a swap with a wonderful Irishwoman. She was very keen on getting a tube of Cover Girl Lash Blast, because Cover Girl is not sold in Ireland. It made me more aware of how much I take granted my access to many cosmetic brands.

So….tell me in the comments!

    there are so many!

    Wet n Wild – I have been obsessing over the glitter polish in ‘Shuffle the Deck’ and am hoping to soon get my hands on it

    Illamasqua and Laura Mercier – I love the laura mercier tinted moisturizer and always stock up when I’m in the states. I’m also incredibly curious about Illamasqua blushes. I hate how they are both ‘restricted brands’ on the Sephora Canada website 😦

    Ecotools – I’ve been wanting to try their Alicia Silverstone brush set for a while but have never been able to get my hands on it!

    Eucerin – their everyday spf 30 sunscreen is my holy grail product in the summer but for some reason we don’t get it on this side of the border!

    Tarte – I really want to try the amazonian clay blushes. They are available here its more that they are so ridiculously over priced. $25 vs $33. But unfortunately that is the case with a lot of things 😦

    ELF – I’ve bought 2 of their brushes and have been very impressed. If only the shipping and customs wasn’t so pricey

  2. urban decay , nars, benefit…but also local drugstore brands like wet and wild and covergirl and things like that…

    REALLY? You want to hear my ridiculously long list?

    Out of the top of my head: Tarte, Milani, Physicians Formula, Jack Black, Wet n’ Wild, Revlon, Le Metier de Beaute…

    I have access to Urban Decay and NARS, however I do have to buy everything sight unseen because there’re no counters here.
