New Beauty Brands to Ireland

Dia daoibh!

So today I'm here to talk beauty brands, non Irish brands that is. A lot of people want what they can't have and this is no exception when it comes to makeup! There were (and still are!) lots of fantastic brands mainly in Canada an the US that were not available here in the Ireland or the UK...  until now. Over the past year this has changed and we're now beginning to see some foreign brands creep into the European market.

Many of you know Wet n Wild is one of those brands. It has gradually been introduced into Dunnes Stores across Ireland this month. I shrieked with delight when I first came across it, and like many other beauty bloggers, "had to" pick up a few bits. Below is what I picked up so just let me know if you would like a closer look in the form of a review. Wet n Wild is a very affordable cosmetic brand with an array of nail polishes, eyeshadows, face and lip products. When I say affordable I'm talking prices ranging from just €1.99 for liners, lipsticks and eyeshadows to €6.69 for the larger eyeshadow palettes


Tarte Cosmetics is another brand that will shortly be hitting the UK online market via QVC in March 2014 (which means it will also be available to us Irish folk!) I was thrilled to hear of this news through EssieButton's video >HERE< Tarte are renowned especially for their blush products and Essie herself constantly raves about their selection of award winning Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush range. This is one brand I am exceptionally excited about! If you happen to be reading this from the US, PR or Canada you can avail of 20% off your first online order when you sign up to their >Newsletter<  GO!!

NYX is a brand that entered the European market a while back, but again is hugely hyped. Like Wet n Wild, NYX Cosmetics have an array of products starting at very affordable prices. They are quite well known for their Jumbo Eye Pencils along with their variety of Powder Blushes and Mega Shine Lip GlossesThey have begun to release more pricey products such as their HD Studio Powders and matching HD Studio Photogenic Foundation. NYX is currently available in-store from Urban Outfitters and River Island. There's a great selection online from Littlewoods Ireland


So for now those are the brands I am lusting over and happily adding some products to my wishlist now that they are available to me! What brands are you currently lusting over or would you like to have in Ireland that are currently unattainable!?
