Sephora announced today that they will ship to the UK! It costs £10 for orders over £75, and for orders under that amount, they will calculate the actual shipping costs (which means it will vary). Sadly they cant ship nail polishes, nail polish remover or aerosols due to shipping restrictions. Word on the street is that there are also potential restrictions on Hourglass and Nars, but that might just be due to certain ingredients in specific products. If in doubt, just try and order and see what they say.

Anyway Sephora contacted me personally to say that their shipping charges include all customs charges, and UK recipients will not be charges any additional fees via customs upon receipt. I hope that this is true....
Sephora is one of those places I go into when in Europe and gaze at everything with big eyes. It all seems so special though I am pretty sure part of that allure is due to the fact we dont have one int he UK. They have a mixture of branded items, exclusives and own brand items. Some are not great (I think I'll give the Upside Down mascara a miss (link) but I can recommend the OPI Sephora polishes if they do another holiday collection (I think they will). You can view pictures of one of the prettiest polishes I own in an old post here.

Oh and if you order by 17:00 GMT Sephora will deal with your order the same day due to the time difference!
Are you going to order anything from Sephora? Maybe some of my US / regular Sephora shoppers can recommend some products?
