My Cult Beauty Staples & Goody Bag



I’ve just spotted that Cult Beauty is giving away a rather lovely goody bag with orders over £60 at the moment, which is apparently running out fast, so if you need to stock up, now’s a good time.  If you haven’t yet discovered Cult Beauty, you’re in for a treat - it stocks some amazing brands that you won’t find elsewhere in the UK, including many of my beauty staples. Here are just a few that make it into my routine weekly if not daily…


Escentric Molecules - Molecule 01

After hearing what seemed like everyone rave about this cult perfume, I treated myself to the 30ml travel size from Cult Beauty last year.  This is supposed to smell differently on everyone and while some find it woody; to me it’s quite a soft, yet fresh feel-good scent that’s completely unlike anything else I’ve tried.  I love to wear it alone or layered with something more heady or spicy as I find it balances out other fragrances beautifully.  NB the travel size comes without a lid, just to save you looking for it like I did ;)


Alpha H Liquid Gold

One of my first skincare discoveries when I began blogging and still a staple as my ultimate skin refiner and ‘overnight facial in a bottle!’.  Thanks to Kenneth Soh and Caroline Hirons for introducing me to this product way back then and convincing me to buy it (my original review)!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Covet Waterproof Eyeliner and Brow Wiz

If you only discover one new brand on Cult Beauty, let this be it.  These eyeliners normally sell for £16 each, but you can try this full set for just £23…  I’m assuming they’re mini sized, but still!  I adore these and can’t rate them highly enough - twist-up (no sharpening!), gorgeous shades that are velvety soft yet long lasting (see my swatches). 

I’m always raving about Brow Wiz - the perfect brow tool and an MUA favourite. Think I’m on my 6th, which I can’t say about any other make-up product!  The lightest shade is perfect for blondes (review & swatch towards end of this post).


Pro Hygiene Collection Makeup Brush Cleaner

A fairly recent discovery for me and one that I’m using pretty much daily, this spray-on brush cleaner instantly removes product (including foundation) from brushes ensuring that they stay clean and hygienic.  Quick and easy to use - just spray and wipe with kitchen roll - and much cheaper than buying multiples of the same brush as you’re good to go again immediately!  Obviously I recommend deep cleaning brushes weekly, but this has been a godsend for regular use.


NCLA Fowl Play Nail Wraps

I love the NCLA brand and their nail wraps are the easiest to work with that I’ve tried.  Fowl Play is a new release and the most stunning I’ve seen - I think these would look amazing as an accent nail or on every nail if you’re game! 


Have you tried any of these products?
