Cult Beauty Products Editors Swear By

Published 06/26/2014 by

Editors see a lot of beauty products parade across their desks day after day. But no matter what the latest techno-serum is or new mascara brush they test; they just can’t quit their favourites. Having worked with some of the best editors across the country, a quick survey produced eerily similar top ten lists. These are the products that get them through the grueling month-long fashion week circuits and the one’s they reach for at the bottom of their bags just before an event—these are the cult classics.

Rosebud Salve $8

A sheer wash of pink, not too sticky and works wonders on cuticles: editors always love a good multi-use beauty buy (especially when the price is right!).

 1. s683490-main-Lhero

L’Oreal Paris Elnett Hairspray  $33

One quick glance backstage and you’ll see this gold bottle everywhere—strong hold but disappears with a stroke of a brush—there’s a reason why it’s been number one for so long.

 2. 10556127-1360768245-235414

YSL Touche Eclat $50

With a promise of brightening and erasing almost all signs of the night before, this little pen continues to deliver on all fronts.

3. Yves_Saint_Laurent_Touche___clat_2_5ml_1366274791

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick $49

One of these is sold every two minutes in the world—most likely because of its universal shade palette that imparts a beautiful, natural-looking glow.

 4. 03+Bobbi+Brown+Bronze+Shimmer+Brick1

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps $12

I’ve known editors to travel with this stuff—yup it’s just that good!

 5. 699096_fpx

Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream $25

Another multi-use buy that can be used on just about anywhere, and has been on editors’ top ten lists since the 1930s.

 6. 455955_1

MAC Matte Lipsticks $15

Super pigmented, long lasting and non-drying, and let’s not forget that Ruby Woo continues to be the perfect shade of red.

 7. MAC-Ruby-Woo-Lipstick-72edit

Mason Pearson Hairbrush from $130

By far the biggest investment you’ll make, but we promise your hair will thank us with its newfound shine and brilliance.

Revlon Nail Enamel in Revlon Red $6

The perfect red nail polish can be found at your local drugstore with Revlon’s Revlon Red, which is never too orange or too blue.

 9. Nails

Urban Decay Naked3 Palette $62

Part of Urban Decay’s wildly popular Naked palettes, this one adds touches of rose gold, shimmering pink and velvety black—inspired by the glow of the setting sun.
