They have been in America for a while before launching over in the UK in 2017, where they are stocked in stores such as Superdrug and Oliver Bonas (a reflection of just how aesthetically pleasing the products are.) They pride themselves in being a “Fixer brand” offering solutions to your everyday makeup challenges.
