In the midst of thousands of creams, shadows and sticks claiming to be the next best thing, we have rounded up the top 10 most iconic beauty products of all time!
Every few months, a new beauty craze sweeps the nation and make up crazy ladies right off their feet and almost immediately, a cheaper duplicate follows. However, a few irreplaceable products have ridden the wave for as long as we can remember and remained iconic. And despite their efforts, cheaper brands have been unable to replicate these products, often releasing a dupe that’s “not quite right.” These tried and true products have inspired a cult following that will be able to note the difference between the original and a dupe. These classic products range from affordable essentials to quite expensive luxuries but in any case, their quality speaks volumes for them; for example, Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara retails for just $6 at drugstores yet a tube is sold every two seconds in the US. Meanwhile, La Mer’s Crème de la Mer retails for $88—for just one ounce! But despite the price point, true believers have no issue shelling out the cash for these products because, after years of trial and recognition by beauty experts, everybody can agree on one thing—they are worth every dime!
