My daughter wants the Anastasia Beverly Hills moon child glow kit for Xmas but I can't find any uk stockists.

There are loads on Amazon but £20
Seems far too cheap, is there any way of knowing if they might be legit or not?

Very good chance that it's not real, do not buy make up for your daughter if you are unsure it's the real thing, it can contain illegal and harmful chemicals. Try beauty bay or cult beauty they often sell Anastasia products sometimes if it's a brand new product you may have to wait a few more weeks for it to be on there as the first few weeks of a new product it's often exclusive to her website

Thank you for the tip, have looked on both and they don't have this particular kit. Typical it's the only thing she really wants this yearshmm

Keep an eye out those websites regularly restock smile

The Anastasia Website delivers to UK addresses, the pallet is $40 but there would be customs/vat on top of that. $20 on amazon is definitely dodgy though

Yeah keep your eyes on the websites named above, it does come into stock quite frequently.

Amazon is rife with fakes. For £20 it's almost guaranteed to be fake, they sell so well that I'd be surprised to find it even slightly reduced anywhere for a while.

My daughter also asked for this and the only place I could get it was the Anastasia Beverly Hills website, I ordered it last week and it arrived today, it looks lovely

I have the Anastasia brow kit which I got from Cult Beauty - it is worth the money. Hope you can get hold of it from somewhere, if not apparently the Charlotte Tibury one is great X

Sephora ships to the UK, you should be able to purchase from there

I ordered it from the proper website last night. Worked out at £50 including delivery and I'll prob have to pay custom charges as well (??) but it's honestly the only thing she keeps asking for so rather pay more than end up with a fake.

I've seen a few more things on the websites mentioned above though that I'd like to surprise her with so thank you very much for the tips

Sephora doesn't ship everything btw- anything liquid isn't allowed- tried to buy a lipgloss set the other day and it wasn't allowed sad
