Award-Winning Stateside Beauty Must-Haves

USA Award-Winning Beauty Products

It’s not just celebrities winning awards, our Hall of Fame stars more than a handful of noteworthy skin, hair and make up essentials. From the Beverly Hills’ pencil that deserves a knighthood for its services to eyebrows, to the brilliant pink sponge that no respecting make up pro would be without, we’ve rounded up the ‘US’ beauty best-in-class.


Kevyn Acuoin’s {Eye Lash Curler} – currently part of our exclusive {Best of Kevyn Aucoin Anniversary Bag} – has scooped up seven sought-after Allure ‘Best of Beauty’ awards – a pretty good innings, very well earned. With sleek curves and a red cushion (so you can see your lashes), this guarantees “precise placement for the consummate curl” – Allure.

Brow Wiz InStyle Best Beauty Buys{ULTIMATE ARCH ANGEL}

Fresh from the home of Hollywood’s AAA-List, Anastasia Beverly Hills’ {Brow Wiz} was named InStyle’s ‘Best Brow Filler’ – and given the hundreds of thousands we sell (just to Cult Beauty staff members), we’re inclined to concur with the fashion and beauty bible. Waxy and long-wearing, the ultra-fine nib creates believable, hair-like strokes – ‘ooomphing’ sparse arches in seconds


GLAMGLOW’s {YOUTHMUD Tinglexfoliate Treatment} was voted top of the face mask-pops by all 44 worldwide editions of Elle – which means its basically the best mask in the world… The grainy grey putty is the ultimate glow-bestowing, at-home treatment – decongesting, brightening and clarifying in a flash.

Harper’s Bazaar’s ‘Beauty Best of the Best’ gave a coveted ‘shout out’ to RMS Beauty – particularly the prettily pigmented {Lip2Cheek} tints, with which they were especially enamoured. “Use ‘Smile’, a sheer coral pink, on lips, cheeks and lightly on the eyes for a healthy, flushed look” – Harper’s Bazaar

Beautyblender Allure Award Winner{BEST ALL-ROUNDER}

Five times winner of Allure’s ‘Best of Beauty’, the {Beautyblender} has iconic curves. A professional make up artist must-have, the fuchsia pink sponge has acquired legions of celebrity devotees (including Oprah, Beyoncé, Rihanna and many other babes who don’t need surnames…), and diffuses foundation flawlessly for a super-smooth, soft-focus finish.

Jouer Cosmetics Luminizing Moisture Tint{BEST ILLUMINATOR}

One of Allure’s favourite tinted moisturisers, Jouer Cosmetics {Luminizing Moisture Tint} has light-reflective particles, to lend your skin an enviable (NON-SPANGLY) lustre. The perfect perker-upper, this blends effortlessly to unify uneven skin tone, blur imperfections and help you ‘look alive’ when skin is dulled

Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil{PHENOMEN-OIL PERFORMANCE}

With a finely-tuned blend of skin-nutritive oils, Sunday Riley’s {Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil} is incredibly industrious (and gifted). Winner of Harper’s Bazaar’s ‘Beauty Best of the Best’ in the ‘Night Oil’ category, this rehabilitative elixir is a stunning final step to your at-home facial, and grants a gorgeous dewiness to cheekbones.
