Don’t get me wrong – I love the Australian beauty market. There are lots of awesome bits and pieces that we’re very lucky to have. But that doesn’t stop the occasional bit of FOMO when I see awesome products overseas that I can’t get my hands on here. I’ve previously spoken about the U.S. brands that I wish were easier to find in Australia but today, it’s all about the U.K. brands.

I’m certain that there are some I’ve missed but I’m definitely not as familiar with the UK beauty range as I am with the US, as I mentioned in my previous post. I’m excited, however, to be heading over there later this year to check out the UK beauty world a little more, first hand.

Read on to see what I picked up in my haul as well as a closer look at my favourite shopping service to get it all from there to here. 


Beauty Brands To Buy In The UK

BUDGET BRANDS TO BUY IN THE U.K.

MUA / one of the longest-standing brands in the UK beauty world. Lots of affordable bits and pieces!

Natural Collection / a simple range of makeup that’s been around for ages, and it’s all just £2.

Collection / this is another super cheap range that has a bunch of hyped up products.

B. / Superdrug’s own brand of makeup and more.

Seventeen / a super affordable range of on-trend products – I’ve heard so many good things!

Makeup Revolution / well-known for providing affordable ‘dupes’ of hyped up makeup products.

I Heart Makeup / an off-shoot of Makeup Revolution with a similar range of cosmetics.

No7 / the Boots own-brand is extensive. There’s everything from makeup to skincare to bath & body.

Models Own / a super cute range of on-trend makeup and nail polishes.

Soap & Glory / sure, we have the bath & body stuff here but the makeup and skincare looks AMAZING.

Sleek / we have some things from Sleek here but there’s definitely a bigger range available in the U.K.

Zoella Beauty & Tanya Burr / two adorable ranges of cosmetics & bath and body products from two very popular Youtubers.

Boots Botanics / a Boots-owned line of dreamy skincare, body care and haircare.

Super Facialist by Una Brennan / another incredibly popular skincare brand.

HIGH STREET BRANDS TO BUY IN THE U.K.

Liz Earle / a skincare brand that’s been around forever. I only ever hear great things about them.

Kiko / seriously, make sure you check out this incredible brand with plenty of noteworthy products.

H&M / I wish I remembered to add some H&M beauty to my order. It all looks so dreamy.

& Other Stories / sort of like H&M’s bigger sister. A beautiful looking minimalistic beauty line-up.


SHOPANDBOX HAUL

And now, onto the haul. To grab all these beautiful bits from the UK, I got in touch with Shopandbox and took advantage of their awesome ‘personal shopping’ system. This time around, Yvonne was my lovely boxer. She was full of helpful brand recommendations and knew plenty about the sales and multibuy deals going on at the time. As I was less familiar with the UK exclusive brands, I had a bunch of fun trawling through the Boots & Superdrug websites finding bits and pieces I wanted to try.

You can read more about the Shopandbox process here and get a rundown of the rates here.

I grabbed two concealers, this time around. Both of which I’ve tried before but ones that I definitely wanted to revisit. The Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer* has had a cult following for quite some time now and Seventeen’s Phwoarr Paint* was an obsession of mine for quite some time. I liked them both in the past so I’m looking forward to trying them out again.

Somehow, things got a little crazy in the blush department in this order. After seeing a pic of the Essence Mosaic Blushes* a while ago, I knew I needed to get my hands on them. That pan detail is just too beautiful. I picked up All You Need Is Pink & Natural Beauty. I’d also heard things ages ago about the Natural Collection Blushed Cheeks in Rosey Glow* so for £2, I thought it was worth a go. Lastly, I added the MUA Blush in Bon Bon* to my order on the recommendation of my Boxer, Yvonne. I also couldn’t resist grabbing the Soap & Glory Solar Powder Bronzer* – a product I’ve heard so many things about in the past.

Two eyeshadow palettes, both in pinky neutral territory and both very pretty to look at. I spotted the MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette in Enchanted* and immediately got some pretty serious Hourglass vibes so I couldn’t resist. The Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette in Iconic 3* caught my eye, too. It’s obviously their take on the UD Naked 3 Palette. When swatching both of these palettes I was actually really impressed with the quality so I’m excited to continue testing them out.

I also got a little carried away with the lipsticks. And in hindsight, they all look very similar. My first pick was the No7 BB Lips in Belle Pink*, a lightweight, balmy gloss that I’d heard bits and pieces about. Next on my list was another thing from Seventeen – this time, the Mega Matte Lipstick in Looking Buff*. My other Soap & Glory product that I couldn’t pass up was the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lipstick in Berry Kissable*. I was also interested in trying out Tanya Burr’s range, which seems to of come a long way since it first launched. The Tanya Burr Lipstick in Sunday Walk* looked positively dreamy.

As for skincare, I picked out two exciting things to try. The first was the Soap & Glory Peaches & Clean Deep Cleansing Milk* which, of course, has just become available at Mecca. But nevertheless, I’m excited to give some of Soap & Glory’s facial skincare a try – I’ve heard awesome things. I also grabbed the Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil*. It sounds like a bit of a cult fave in the UK and I do love a good cleansing oil…

    I’ve just had my first shopping online spree at Tam beauty. They are the distributors of Makeup Revolution, I 💟 makeup and the freedom range. Their products are extremely reasonably priced and with free shipping over $70 Aud you can’t go wrong. I’ve seen so much about the Collections concealer on YouTube it’s one of the things I most want to try. For the moment I’ll just happily play witty my current goodies.

    • Ooh yay! I’ve been meaning to check out more from the range so it’s good they have international shipping over $70!

  • Aw thank you! That’s so lovely to hear 🙂 So glad you love the content!

  • Thank you!

  • Yesss, definitely what I’d do too! There’s so many more products I want to try!

  • Yeah I’ve definitely heard that the Essence range is larger overseas! Couldn’t resist grabbing those beautiful blushes 🙂

  • The Kiko range is SO beautiful! Can totally recommend checking them out

  • Nur Aisyah Binti Zamzuri

    I really want to try Zoella’s product

  • Aneena Tauroa

    Oh the woes of a student!! When money is something you need to be saving and then this pops up…what’s a girl to do??? I’v heard soooooo many amazing things about Super Facialist from one of my close friends and her and her mum SWEAR by the Anti Blemish Clay Mask, especially for oily skin, she said it was a godsend. As well as the Collection and Natural Collections, I would love to see something similar here in Aus for affordable prices and amazing results. I’m your typical girl who loves makeup but gets roped into spending all of her moola, so fingers crossed, I’ll be saving the dimes with such an amazing range of choices! The trend begins xx

  • Joyce Rosas

    I will love to try the MUA and Soap glory brands. They really look amazing!

  • Caitlin Garrity

    I would love to try Kino products. They seems like such good value for money!

  • I have a big old list of UK brands that I want to buy but Kiko and MUA are probably at the top!

    • Yes! Kiko is one of those brands that I wish finally came to Australia

    • Hi Jade! Congratulations – you’re the winner of this Shopandbox giveaway! I’ll send you an email now, please reply with your address so I can send through the prize! 🙂

  • Lily Everest

    So glad I found this post! I have been wondering how to get the Collection concealer shipped to Australia for years! My friend got me a few when she went to London but I am running low so now I can get some more! 🙂

  • I’ve heard such great things about the Soap & Glory makeup range so I was excited!

  • I’m glad it was helpful! And I totally agree with all your brands you want to try!

  • Aren’t the Essence blushes just incredible? I reckon they’d sell really well in Australis! And I agree, a little cheeky but it was funny when my mum saw the Hourglass ones online and was commenting on how pretty they are then showed her the 4 pound option 😛
