Some Cult Favourites That Are Worthy Of Their Status

Cult favourites are the ones that have won many people's hearts, are recommend by fellow beauty enthusiasts and are the holy grails of the beauty world. Now I haven't had the pleasure of trying all of the cult-classics out there (like Kat Von D's 'Lolita' and Laura Mercier's Translucent Setting Powder), but the five that I have are definitely worthy of their title.


Maybelline have created an absolute winner of a product and it is by far one of my most favoured drugstore foundations for a few years running (despite it not having a pump dispenser). It's light in consistency but it covers beautifully and the finish is very matte and very poreless as promised. I really appreciate that the formula is non-comedogenic because the last thing someone with breakout prone skin needs is blocked pores. I like using a damp beauty sponge to apply which ensures a more even and flawless finish, and it really does last all the way through day without any caking or creasing whatsoever. If you haven't jumped on the bandwagon, I highly suggest you do so! 


I remember when this was the ONLY highlighter all the beauty vloggers were wearing so of course I had to get it for myself to see what the hype was about. It is honestly 100% worthy of being a cult favourite in my opinion; it makes those cheekbones pop with this golden-silvery hue that doesn't emphasize texture or leave chunky glitter behind. You don't need much at all to highlight your features and you can go as subtle or BAM! as you like. I've had mine for quite a while now but it looks brand new so it is amazing value for money and the quality is outstanding!  


I was so overwhelmed by the sheer amount of gorgeous products Colourpop had to offer that I just went straight for their bestsellers which included 'Lumière'. I simply cannot help myself when it comes to mauve lip colours so when I received it in the mail, it was love at first sight! It is matte but minus the dry, tight feeling so it's super comfortable on the lips with the help of Vitamin E and Shea Butter. I can totally see why this has such a cult following (good on you Kathleen Lights!) because it's just a lovely lip product all around that looks so pretty on the lips. It really is a must-buy! 


After reading such rave reviews on this particular mascara, I put it to the test and it was the only one I would wear for months at a time - that's how good it is! I don't know how it works but it does, and it does extremely well! It took me a bit to get used to the curved wand, but once I got the hang of it my lashes looked fantastic. It lengthens and volumizes without clumping and the formula is very black which makes my blue eyes pop. It doesn't transfer, smudge or flake off during the day either so it's safe to say that Maybelline have absolutely killed it with this mascara! 


Of course 'Orgasm' is a cult favourite and well-deserved of its status too! This stunner of a blush is a peachy-pink with a shimmery golden reflect that looks so flattering on the cheeks. It brightens your complexion by making you look radiant and it's such a universal shade as well. Everything about this blush from the packaging to the formula and finish is just perfect, and a definite staple in your makeup collection.
