How to get American Beauty Products in the UK



If you're anything like me, you probably always want what you can't have, including beauty products from across the pond! Being a British beauty blogger with an endless feed full of Sephora and Ulta hauls can be more than annoying and I am forever lusting over the likes of Tarte, Kat Von D and Too Faced. In my first few months of blogging, my search for the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation (review here) led me to something quite unexpected and very exciting. Some of you or most of you may well already about Roses Beauty Store, but for those of you who don't... thank me later!

Roses Beauty Store is an online retailer, stocking beauty products from around the globe (they have offices in Regent Street, London and Beverly Hills, California). Here is a non-exhaustive list of the brands that they stock:


Anastasia Beverly Hills // Beauty Blender // Becca // Benefit // BH Cosmetics // Bite Beauty // Bobbi Brown // e.l.f // EOS // Essence // Hourglass // IT Cosmetics // Kardashian Beauty // Kat Von D // Laura Geller // Laura Mercier // Lorac // MAC // Makeup Forever // Milani Cosmetics // Nars // Nudestix // NYX // Sigma // Smashbox // Stila // Tarte // Too Faced // Urban Decay

Globalisation of the beauty industry is definitely giving us a helping hand in the UK (NYX is now available in Boots, eeek!), but if you want to discover a broader range of brands, give Roses a go! Their standard UK delivery is a mere £2 and takes 5-7 days, or for an extra £1, 3-5 days.

So there you have it... one of my best beauty discoveries!

Has anyone else used Roses Beauty Store before? If so, what do you think?

  3. Ooooh, thank you so much for sharing this post! I'm always after the American brands that are so hard to find in the UK so I'll definitely be having a look on this site later and possibly (more than likely) placing an order. Thank you for sharing!!!! xx

    1. I think that more and more of the American beauty brands will start making an appearance in the UK, but until then, Rose's is a God send!xx

    1. I know, so annoying! I love that Too Faced ships to the UK now, but don't like all the added taxes they add on at the end... I could buy another product with that extra money! That's why Roses is so good, no hidden fees and cheap delivery!xx

  10. This is SO HELPFUL!!! I went to America recently and only then was I able to appreciate certain brands. I got back here and seriously pined after them so this is such a help to have Roses bookmarked!

    1. Aw, I'm so glad you found it helpful! Hopefully Roses will be adding to the list of brands they have available too, because I'd love to try Jeffree Star, Makeup Geek, Color Pop and JD Glow Cosmetics xx

  11. Wow this store looks amazing! It must be so annoying to read great reviews on a product and not be able to get it. Great tip!
