5 Places You Can Get Your Favourite American Brands in the UK

For years I would watch Vloggers on Youtube and pine for the products they were using... products which were never stocked in stores near me. It was a case of risk custom charges to buy what could possibly be the wrong shade, or just go without. As a teenager I couldn't afford to take the risk so continued to just use the products that were on my doorstep. While brands such as Nars and NYX are now available in the UK, very few others are but the popularity of these products means they are now more attainable than ever... and I'm about to tell you exactly where you can get them. I've even included a cute little table which you can save and refer back to!

One: Beauty Bay
This website is one of my favourites, and offers the best delivery options and great value prices. I use Beauty Bay quite a lot and out of the five I'd say it was probably my favourite and I can speak from personal experience to say that they are a pleasure to deal with and a reliable company. Standard tracked delivery is £1.95 (free for orders above £15) and next day is only £2.50 (free for orders above £40). They stock a huge range of the American brands we all covet (11 out of the 20) but can't find in store... I've listed them in the table below!

Two: Cocktail Cosmetics
This site comes joint first with Beauty Bay for stocking the most brands but the great news here is they aren't all the same. Cocktail Cosmetics stock some amazing cult brands when it comes to liquid lipstick with their stock including products from Jeffree Star and Gerard Cosmetics. Delivery here starts at £3.95 for tracked standard delivery with orders over £50 qualifying for free delivery. Next day delivery here is £8.95 which is relatively normal... but still stings a touch when you compare it to the Beauty Bay's next day delivery charges. Check out the full list of products stocked here in the table below my lovelies!

Three: Love Makeup Cosmetics
I found this fantastic website when I was on the hunt for a UK Stockist of my Lime Crime lipsticks. While they don't stock as many of the brands as Beauty Bay do, they do stock some that others don't and they are the only website on this list that stocks Lime Crime so that earns them a space on this list as one of my favourites. Their standard delivery starts at £3.50, with next day being £5.50. Orders over £50 qualify for free standard delivery.

Four: Beauty Chamber
While this is another website that doesn't stock as many products as the others, it still stocks many of the brands you will be looking for. Its always handy to have more than one place to go for a product because you never know when something you really wanted is going to be out of stock elsewhere. Delivery starts at £3.45 for signed for standard with next day delivery costing £8.50 so is in line with that of Cocktail Cosmetics.

Five: Cult Beauty
This little cutie has stocks the fewest brands on the list... but it is a little gem in its own right as the only stockist of Becca Cosmetics and Huda Beauty cosmetics which is the brand of Instagram Queen Huda Kattan... who if you haven't heard of, you need to! Cult Beauty is also the only other stockist other than Beauty Bay to stock Anastasia Beverly Hills products. Delivery here starts at £3.95 for standard delivery, with Fed Ex delivery costing £7.95.

So there you have it... those brands you've been coveting are more within your reach than you realised! Get the table saved, and start expanding your wish list! I know writing this post means that my list just got considerably longer than beforehand!

Much love,


  1. I've never heard of beauty chamber but I love cocktail cosmetics. I recently bought a JS lipstick and it's amazing. Still need to grab dose of colours. There's so much to buy! I wish someone in the UK stocked colour pop though x

    1. It's a really good site, and definitely worth checking out!

      I really wanted the pack of three limited edition liquid lipsticks that Dose released but never found them in stock. They look amazing don't they! I have a few JS on my list as well... I think this list is going to forever get longer!

  2. I absolutely love Beauty Bay it's one of my favourites! Delivery and service is the best, I could literally place an order tonight and it will be at my door in the morning!

    1. They definitely have one of the best delivery services I've used on any website period. It makes it so much more exciting to make an order when you know it won't take long for it to be at your door!
