Cult Beauty buys that actually work
Ever wondered what top Beauty Bloggers and Make Up Artists hide in their make up bag? Truth is most girls in the know stick to a list of tried and tested cult beauty products, items that have stood the test of time and are as good today as they were the day they launched. So forget faddy buys, try out these must have items that really work.
No other beauty product has managed to stir up the same hype that surrounded the 2010 release of this Urban Decay best seller. Originally a 12-shade palette packed with pretty, pigmented neutrals it’s since spawned two updates, and two basic versions, however it’s the first that remains a must-have for its quality and superior versatility.
Launched in 1999 this naughtily named blusher aims to please giving a healthy glow and immediately warming up your complexion. 135 are sold every hour and in 2011 alone 652,874 blushers were sold, that makes two Orgasms every minute, lucky girls.
Many have tried to imitate Saint Laurent’s Éclat Radiant Touch, but noting can out do the original. Say good-bye to dark circles, spots and fine lines with this super smooth formula that also illuminates and brightens. Well worth the £25 price tag.
It aims to be the push up bra for eyelashes and no doubt it’s one of the few things in life a girl can rely on. One sells every four seconds around the world and it’s especially popular in the UK where it constantly tops best sellers lists. With its no clump formula it glides on to create volumized, long and curled lashes.
This lesser known blogger favorite is made with aloe Vera, ginseng and a touch of glycolic aid, to get rid of impurities and leave your skin with a heavenly glow, not to mention super soft. After being forever sold out online and in Pixi’s Carnaby Street store its now available to buy at M&S.
80 years on and Elizabeth Arden’s 8 hour cream is still being sold at a rate of one every 30 seconds meaning it has well and truly earned it’s place on the cult beauty list. This wonder cream can be used on dry skin, sunburn and glossy lips.
