I Used Only Cult Classic Beauty Products for a Month

And I learned a lot...

To say that I like to challenge myself is a bit of an understatement. As a beauty editor, I've put myself through the ringer more times than I can count. I've worn lipstick every day for a month; tested out 30 different K-beauty products in a month; used only natural makeup for a week; and worked out in makeup all in the name of beauty. 

But recently, I vowed to use only cult classic beauty products for a month. That means for 30 days I would be restricting my beauty and skincare routine to only products that are notorious in the beauty business for being the best of the best. The products I chose were a mix of ones I've used before and knew held up to their title and those that I'd always heard about and yet never tried. The real challenge would be to remain loyal to these product for the whole month.

My 30 days with these 24 products proved to be a challenge indeed. Although there were times I struggled to stick to only these products, I found that, ultimately, I could cut my beauty product haul down significantly. I also learned that the vast majority of these product has well-earned titles of cult classics. They're high-performing and because of that, they made my beauty routine much easier and more streamlined than it had been.

Bottom line: Although I'll be glad to pick up some new products and incorporate them into my daily routine, I was very impressed with these legends and find myself a true believe in the power of a cult classic.
