In the world of beauty, the words universally flattering is a nearly impossible feat. Considering variations in complexion, facial features, and personal style, pleasing everyone is almost never in the cards.
Which is why it’s so shocking when a beauty product manages to earn cult status, making itself irreplaceable in more makeup bags than not.
Take Clé de Peau Beauté’s creamy, full-coverage concealer for example; it imperceptibly blends into the skin, won’t budge, and has practically become the crowd-sourced response to the question: “What is the best concealer?”
So, without further ado, here are of best-selling beauty products in existence!
A perennial makeup-artist favorite, Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer is highly editorialised and continues to win major awards year after year.
It covers spots, freckles and dark circles to create an even-toned, beautiful complexion. The creamy formula comes in a stick base, which enables it to absorb in a way fluid foundation can not for lasting, fool-proof coverage.
Japanese Powder Technology camouflages imperfections while brightening skin, while super bio-hyaluronic acid creates a smooth, supple complexion by maintaining skin’s moisture level for healthy looking radiance.
Foundation in a cushion sounds like a gimmick, but trust us when we say this unique product is the real deal!
The liquid color is suspended in a sponge that releases the foundation when pressed. But it’s the formula that’s so special. It’s both supremely lightweight and incredibly buildable. One layer gives you the same amount of coverage and dewy finish as a tinted moisturizer. Apply a few more and you’ll get the same opacity as a medium-coverage foundation. And if you happen to reapply, there’s no risk of it becoming cake-y.
When Yves Saint Laurent’s moisturising lip tint hit shelves in 2014, we didn’t know what to think. Is it an oil? A stain? A gloss?
Well, it’s kind of all three. The formula is oil-based so it hydrates like a balm, but it has the shine and feel of a gloss. And once the oil sinks in, you’re left with a pretty wash of color (like a stain) that makes the perfect complement to a dramatic eye effect or a no-makeup makeup look.
Laneige is one of the biggest beauty brands in Korea, and rightly so!
The Water Bank Eye Gel is a standout in the line: The gel-based cream floods skin with nourishing ingredients like olive oil and water, which is locked in with occlusives so it doesn’t just evaporate. It leaves the skin around your eyes superhydrated, and its cool texture is a refreshing treat when not even a double espresso can wake you up.
You know those women who come off an airplane looking better than when they boarded it?
We have two theories: 1. They’re superhuman; 2. They packed a pair of these in their carry-on. The sake-based gel strips instantly de-puff and moisturize for brighter eyes, even after red-eyes.
Unlike harsh scrubs, this citrus-scented, chamomile-spiked scrub won’t leave your skin feeling rubbed raw.
With a combination of physical and chemical exfoliants (aluminum oxide crystals and lactic acid), it gently buffs away dead skin, helping any treatment creams penetrate better, too.
Season after season, makeup artists are caught using this backstage at fashion shows.
The shimmery, pearly shade contours cheek- and brow bones and creates an ethereal glow.
Makeup artists rely on this velvety-smooth foundation for movies and red-carpet events because of its natural, buildable coverage and smart shade range. The shade range look like real skin tones—there’s nothing too orangey or pink or ashy.
Guerlain spent years engineering a machine that could create perfectly shaped spheres, whose compact shape allowed a woman to pick up just enough product with her brush.
The green, pink, white, and gold illuminating balls were so popular in their first year (thanks to the subtle glow they impart on skin), they were rationed at the Paris boutique. Americans, on the other hand, blew through their entire stock in a matter of weeks!
Coco Chanel made this floral-aldehyde fragrance exclusive, intending to share only 100 bottles with her best clients.! Marilyn Monroe made it sexy (she wore it to bed with nothing else).
Today, millions of women have made it the number-one-selling fragrance worldwide.
