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.
