It isn’t easy for a beauty product to reach cult status. It must be innovative. It must produce remarkable results. It must look exceptional on varying skin tones and types. And it most certainly must not be a fad. That’s why so few not only earn the honourable title, but hold on it.

These cult beauty products have undeniably earned their stripes. They’re the cream of the crop; the best sellers; the must-haves. They each have a legion of loyal followers, and they deserve a spot in your beauty kit, too. Use them one, twice, and you’ll fall in love. Promise.
