The Best American Beauty Products

We are taking you on a beauty tour of the world with #LFEXPLORER. This week is all about beauty brands hailing from the U.S. of A, so we have pulled together our list of the best American beauty products.

From haircare and skincare to makeup and perfume, these are the American All-Stars you need to get your hands on!

The Best American Beauty Products

The Michael Kors brand is all about the jet-set lifestyle of New Yorkers. His perfumes are exotic and femine and the Rose Radiant Gold Eau de Parfum has a beautiful musky, floral scent. Perfect for Spring, plus the rose gold packaging will look amazing on your dressing table!

Lancer Skincare comes all the way from Dr. Harold Lancer's L.A. Dermatology practice, where he caters to the stars. The Method is his secret to radiant, youthful skin and now you can buy the full skincare regime in one bundle for that L.A. glow.

Maybelline is one of those American brands all of us have heard of. From buying their Great Lash mascara as a teen, to lusting over the Baby Lips collections before they came to England, it is a mainstay of our cosmetics bags. At the moment we love the new Baby Skin range for its hydrating, dewy results.

How could we not include Redken? They are the brand that changed how America thought about haircare by introducing protein technology and they are still the one we turn to for gorgeous locks. The Diamond Oil Glow Dry helps hair dry quickly with a shiny, sleek finish.

Stila are one of the most covetable makeup brands from the USA and their Crush Lip and Cheek Stain is incredible. Just click to release the perfect amount of colour. Try the shade 'Raspberry' for a bright berry lip that lasts all day.

Estée Lauder skincare is always on our wishlist. Right now we're lusting after the New Dimension Expert Liquid Tape, which tones and tightens in a flash. Apply a thin film over browbone, temples and corners of the mouth before tapping on skincare and makeup.

Founded in Maine in 1984, Burt's Bees is all about natural products based on the beeswax which started it all. They are known for their lip balms and this Vanilla Bean scented balm is a must have for everyone's desk. It smells gorgeous and keeps your lips beautifully soft.

Straight from the Salons of New York, Nexxus is one of our newest haircare launches. Using luxurious ingredients and scientific technologies, Nexxus gives you healthy, flexible and glossy hair. Try the Nutritive Masque to give dry and damaged hair a treat.

This is only a tiny snippet of the amazing US brands stocked on Lookfantastic. Check out all our American All-Stars and get your fix of transatlantic beauty today!



Make Up Specialist

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
