With thousands of new beauty products being launched every single month, it can be hard to keep up. What’s worth your money, what really works, and what’s actually worth the hype— rather than just looking pretty on instagram. That’s where this list comes in. We’ve rounded up 15 beauty products that really are worth their cult status. Some are new, some are old— but all are deserving of a space in your beauty bag.
There’s a reason why every beauty editor loves this foundation. It leaves your skin dewy and plump. Plus, it has SPF50.
The red lipstick that’s universally flattering, lasts all day (or night) and is under £20… MAC Ruby Woo is iconic.
It’s seriously expensive but if you are able to afford a bottle, you will notice a difference in your skin. It leaves it brighter, more radiant and is brilliant for minimising pigmentation.
There’s more to this mask than instagrammable packaging and a celebrity following— it soothes, hydrates and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.
Used backstage for years, this is sexy hair texture in a can. If you find your hair lies flat or looks too ‘done’… use this to inject that hairdresser oomph back into it.
Not enough people know about this. It locks in your blow dry, gives hair serious shine and protects against humidity for up to 72 hours. Once discovered, you’ll never want to blow dry your hair without it.
Glossier’s one of the most talked about beauty brands right now— but Boy Brow is worth every bit of the hype. It fluffs up brows, giving the perfect amount of colour and hold, without leaving them looking crunchy or unnatural.
If you struggle to find a flattering nude lip shade, Pillow Talk might just be the one. It gives your lips a natural pillowy-plumpness. The liner is also super soft and creamy. There’s a reason it’s a best-seller.
Whether it’s used as a skin barrier, a nourishing balm for extra-dry areas or as a glowy highlight— you’ll find Weleda Skin Food in practically every makeup artist’s kit.
If you’re worried about hair damage— this is the mask you need. Originally formulated for no other than Audrey Hepburn, this mask has stood the test of time because it really works.
Doing your nails at home? Nothing will give you that salon-smooth finish like Seche Vite. No bubbles, no marks and quick drying— it’s brilliant.
Looking for a great ‘does-it-all’ serum? You’ll like ANR. Intensely hydrating and noticeably radiance-boosting… it’s not surprising that this is Estee’s #1 serum.
