How does a beauty product become a cult classic? Only a few products inspire that kind of devotion. These tried-and-true staples are loved for their great performance and timeless appeal. (Even if I could personally do without the last one.)
Essie describes this shade as a “classic, grown-up pink.” For a natural looking french manicure, use one coat. For a little extra color, use two. You can wear this classy–and versatile–neutral to the beach or down the aisle or anywhere in between.
The Rosebud Perfume Co. has been whipping up this sweet-smelling multipurpose skin treatment since 1892. The obvious uses are for lips, chapped skin, and dry hands, but some use it as a blush for a subtle rosy glow, or even as a treatment for diaper rash. It comes in a pretty tin (though it’s also available in a tube these days).
Fans swear these are the best tweezers you will ever use. Smooth, sharp, and accurate, these tweezers are a whole different beast than the cheap ones at Target. (Plus, Tweezerman will sharpen your tweezer’s hand-filed tips at no cost.)
Nars blush is available in 29 shades, but this is the one that inspires intense devotion. This sheer pressed-powder blush is a universally flattering peachy pink, with just a hint of shimmer, and imparts a natural-looking, healthy glow.
This soft violet lip color is the universally flattering shade. It’s a chameleon shade: because it’s a bit transparent, it works with your natural lip color instead of masking it, and looks a bit different on everyone.
This conditioning treatment of jojoba oil, almond oil and Vitamin E got a big boost when Serena Williams raved about it. I like the product, but it’s the one I could do without. I prefer a homemade coconut oil and sugar scrub for my nails.But I gotta admit, the SolarOil is easier to use every day, thanks to the handy bottle and brush.
Do you use any of these beauty cult classics? What’s your favorite beauty product with a cult following?
