17 CULT BEAUTY CLASSICS
The must-have products we’re hoping to unwrap for our birthday
It’s Friday’s 17th birthday, so what better excuse to celebrate with the ultimate wish-list of must-have-gimme-now beauty buys that every woman should indulge in? From celebrity favourites such as Mac’s Russian Red lipstick, which has been a bestseller since Madonna wore it throughout her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour, to Eve Lom’s cleanser adored by stars such as Kate Hudson and Kylie Minogue, and Tom Ford’s modern classic fragrance, Black Orchid, worn by A-listers galore – including Eva Longoria and Jennifer Aniston – these products have stood the test of time. Just like us!
With iconic classics the numbers speak for themselves – YSL’s Touche Éclat sells one every 10 seconds, Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair is sold every seven seconds, while if you had a 1cm cubed ribbon of the amount of Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturiser sold in the past 10 years you could scale the Burj Khalifa 91,602 times. These are the firm fixtures on every beauty insider’s and celebrity’s must-have list. Now, it’s time to add them to yours. Go on, it’s our birthday! Treat yourself...
