Being in a cult isn’t always a bad thing.
Makeup and skincare has come a long way in the past few years, and I’m all for it. Gone are the days where you would have to hunt high and low for a colored eyeliner or radiance boosting face mask with good ingredients. But, some products stand above the rest and gain such a massive following that they reach “cult” status. These are the cult beauty products that are worth their cult following.
Call My Dad, I’m in a Cult: Cult Beauty Products I Totally Stand By
suntanned minus the sun_
The Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzer is a product that can’t not be mentioned when talking about cult status beauty products. It’s the bronzer that graces many vanities and for good reason since it’s a gorgeous cream bronzing base that works beautifully on its own or underneath a powder bronzer. The only downside to this is that there’s only one shade. If you’re too fair, it will come off Trump orange, and if you’re darker complected then it’ll be too light. Although the price tag is hefty, you get a hefty amount of product so it’s totally worth it in the end.
_ you smell like a million bucks
I’ll admit it. I have a luxury fragrance addiction. Let’s be real. It’s a luxury beauty addiction, and fragrances are definitely up there on the list. I can’t help myself, and it seems like the older I get, the more I [begrudgingly] fork over the money for expensive smells. One of those expensive products is Byredo’s Gypsy Water. I spoke about this a while ago and it’s a unisex scent that leans a little more masculine on me. It’s warmer and more earthy than what I generally go for, and that’s another reason why it’s become one of my favorites that I spritz ever so sparingly because I never want to run out.
drunk in love… with you_
Drunk Elephant’s Babyfacial reached cult status probably the second it released, and I can see why. Housed in a gorgeous au courant “millennial” pink (i.e. just pink, really) pump packaging is a 25% AHA and 2% BHA treatment that tingles and burns (in a good way!) and leaves you with smooth, radiant skin. It’s a treatment you only need to do once a week and overtime will help even things up, decongest, and give you healthier and happier skin.
_ maybe she’s born with it; maybe it’s in her genes
Speaking of acids, Sunday Riley Good Genes is another uber popular and uber cult-y product that was one of the first of its kind. I remember hearing about this years ago before lactic acid treatments were a huge well known thing, and I think that’s why it gained such an obsequious following. Even though you don’t necessarily have to shell out the big bucks for an over the counter lactic acid, this one works wonders and is the best one I have tried.
bushy brow don’t care_
I used to be super embarrassed of having bushy brows that would need a good threading every week to maintain them. But, now I’m glad the bushy/natural brow is in because that means less pain for me. Glossier’s Boy Brow has been a lifesaver for me (and others) because it comes with the tiniest wand that helps fluff up the brows and sets them in place. I use the shade black and it adds just the right amount of shade to my brows so they’re more filled in, but don’t look super overdone or sharpie brow-esque and never feel crunchy.

p.s. if you listen to My Favorite Murder then you totally get the title, and I love you for it.
