A tried-and-true beauty product is much like an old friend: reliable, comforting, and supportive. It gives you what you need, there are no surprises, and it saves you in a pinch. Always. Chances are you have a few of these products tucked away in your vanity. In the beauty world, a select few products have earned the coveted label of cult classic. With golden reputations and massive loyal followings to boot, these products are hero products if we ever saw 'em! We're taking a peek at these cult-classic beauty products to see the magic behind them! Last week we chatted about the most Instagrammed eye shadow palette ever and this week we're moving on to a lipstick with more celebrity fans than green juice.
Why it's a classic: The perfect red lipstick is a thing of beauty and it's shockingly tough to find. First launched in 1999 as part of the Retro Matte collection, the devotion of beauty lovers to this bold shade was swift and long-lasting. Now, with celeb fans including Rihanna and Gwen Stefani this lippie has reached icon status, selling out across the country and around the world.
Why we love it: Ruby Woo manages the near impossible—it flatters nearly every skintone and makes a statement. The secret to this cult classic is its blue tone. These tones balance the red in cool skintones and flatter the yellow and olive tones in those with warm complexions. Plus, the lightly matte finish is sexy and provides incredible pigment payoff.
