Cosmetics with Staying Power

Four must-have cosmetics that will continue to be stylish for years to come.

Must Haves

Cult Beauty

These offerings have devoted followings – and will for years to come

-Paige Herman-Axel

The term cult classic may conjure up images of the Rocky Horror Picture Show or ‘80s teenage angst movies, but the beauty world has its own group of must-have cosmetics that appear of editors’ must-have lists year after year.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
Not exactly a stain, and not exactly a gloss, this wash of color looks natural on any skin tone. Don’t be freaked out when you see it in the tube – yes it looks black but it goes on oh-so sheer. It was discontinued a while back but Clinique brought it back due to overwhelming demand. $14, clinique.com

Maybelline Great Lash

Maybelline Great Lash
I dare you to find a makeup artist whose bag of tricks does not include this famed pink tube. It’s inexpensive and does the job, and today there are three versions (washable, washable with curved brush and waterproof) to meet your mascara needs. About $5, drugstores nationwide

Nars Orgasm Blush

Nars Orgasm Blush
Nars rocked the beauty world with the introduction of their Orgasm blush – a pinky, peach hue that’s magically flattering on just about everyone. The success of the shade spawned an entire color range that now includes a lip gloss, nail polish and multipurpose color stick that can be used on the cheeks, eyes and beyond. $25, Nars.com

M.A.C Lipglass

M.A.C Lipglass
The original clear Lipglass is the gold standard when it comes to lacquer-like shine, and today there are countless iterations that offer color, glimmer, moisture and more. $14, maccosmetics.com
