With wet n wild (finally) launching on Beauty Bay, I got thinking about other brands that aren’t so easy to get hold of in the UK.
Available in other parts of Europe, I’ve heard good things about this affordable brand but I’m yet to find any UK stockists.
ColourPop makes some amazing products and they release new stuff literally all the time. My abandon cart rate must be ridiculous on their website as I’m forever adding things and never purchasing because I know that I’ll end up with a hefty customs bill.
In the UK, Royal Mail charges an £8 handling fee on top of the customs fee (which I think is 20% of the value, like VAT) so I’ve been hit with £20+ to pay on previous orders, making another affordable brand pretty expensive!
The things I do own from PF were purchased from the US Amazon, as that actually worked out cheaper than UK Amazon even with customs charges on top! (Amazon work this out for you so I didn’t get any nasty surprises like with ColourPop.)
I just wish we had Sephora stores here in the UK but it would also be nice to be able to try out the Sephora brand stuff. Sephora recently decided to block UK customers from the US website and redirect us to the French site which is a controversial decision that just puts me off them to be honest…
What brands do you wish were easier to get hold of?
