There's a sort of reverence reserved for a select few makeup products that manage to establish themselves as cult favorites. You see their names again and again as you scroll through Reddit, Instagram and your favorite websites — heck, some of them you've probably even seen in your mother's (or even your grandmother's) makeup bag. Suffice it to say, there's something about them that sets them apart and makes them endure.
Of course, some of it is talk, but a surprising amount of it is true — a lot of these products really are about as close to magic as you can get in this mortal realm, whether that means flawless lashes for the cost of a latte or a neutral nail polish worthy of Queen Elizabeth II herself. Keep on reading to see all the makeup cult favorites that truly measure up.
The giggle-inducing NSFW name is not all this superstar blush has going for it: It also happens to be the most flattering shade ever. Believe the hype — the sheer (yet buildable) shimmery peach creates a lovely and, shall we say, healthy flush.
Everything you've heard about this stunner is true: It has the prettiest finish and the lightest texture, making it ideal for blurring imperfections while adding a bit of dewiness (especially in the under-eye area).
The buzz around this popular setting powder is practically inescapable — and deservedly so. Just the tiniest amount will help lock your foundation in for the long haul, and it helps with shine control too. Bonus points if you shell out the extra bucks for the luxurious velvet applicator puff.
