These days, new beauty launches are a near-constant occurrence, with a never-ending array of products flooding our feeds, day in and day out. And while we’re always thrilled to learn about exciting up-and-coming brands, there’s nothing like the tried-and-true staples that have stood the test of time.
A small number of instantly recognizable, universally adored beauty products (think: a certain mascara in a pink and green tube, or the classic moisturizer you can’t not stock up on during a trip to the drugstore) have earned themselves a cult-like following over the years thanks to their innovation and efficacy.
Not sure where to start when it comes to choosing which cult favourite beauty product to pick up next? Allow us to suggest an unconventional way of shopping: by looking to the stars. (The ones in the sky, that is.) Without further ado, we present: the zodiac signs as cult favourite beauty products.
ARIES: Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
This fire sign wants to feel young forever, and nothing makes them feel more like a teen than using the same (effective!) moisturizer for 20 years.
TAURUS: La Mer Crème de la Mer Moisturizing Cream
Does it need to be as wildly expensive as it is? Who knows. But it’s luxe, glam and always seems to have its life together, like a true Taurus.
GEMINI: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
The dual-toned, easy-to-spot-from-a-mile-away mascara is the definition of a classic. Sure, more over-the-top mascaras have since been released, but we’ll never forget how pleasantly surprised we were the first time we used this iconic pick.
CANCER: Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Cleansing Solution
This makeup-removing solution is beyond gentle and comforting. It just wants you to relax, take your face off and enjoy a quiet night at home.
LEO: L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray
The higher the hair, the closer to God a Leo’s heart.
VIRGO: Skinceuticals CE Ferulic
The beloved serum was researched and tested for forty years before it was deemed perfect enough to be released. Have you ever heard anything so very Virgo?
LIBRA: Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
This cute, popular acne treatment is beloved by everyone from celebrities to influencers to dermatologists. Everyone has posted a selfie wearing this spot treatment on their face. Like a Libra, it’s a social butterfly and mingles with all crowds.
SCORPIO: Nars Orgasm Blush
A little on the nose, yes, but with a name like that, this beloved blush can only belong to one sign.
SAGITTARIUS: Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat
Sure, it’s bright and shiny on the outside, but its entire purpose is to conceal secrets like insomnia, jet lag and yet another night out until sunrise. Perfect for the sign that will never learn to stay still.
CAPRICORN: CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion
Is it flashy and over-the-top? Not quite. Is it a totally hard-working, affordable and reliable moisturizer? Absolutely.
AQUARIUS: CK One by Calvin Klein Eau de Toilette Spray
The summery, iconic and instantly recognizable fragrance is perfect for the open-minded artist of the zodiac. The first-ever mainstream unisex fragrance to be launched in North America? We have no choice but to stan.
PISCES: Biologique Recherche Lotion P50
It’s intense and certainly not for everyone, but for those who can handle it, once you go P50 (Does the ‘P’ stand for Pisces? Probably.), you’ll never go back.
