2. Escentric Molecules, Molecule 01

It's unisex, it's fresh, it's bespoke! Oh my giddy aunt how much your life will change once you know about this bad boy. Everyone with a 5 mile radius of you will smell it and want it. It's not something I like to admit but I have indeed been that crazy person chasing (ok walking suspiciously fast) a stranger with my nose in the air. Once you've tracked it down, you'll never let it go.

But it's not all about the scent itself - it's about the science too. Molecule 01 has been developed to meld with your natural pheromones. Which means not only is it alluring and mystical but individual to you! And we've heard only 15% of people can actually smell it. Are you one of the chosen ones? I sincerely hope you are or you'll be getting FOMO like you've never experienced before my friend.

You'll rarely smell it on yourself, but the effect it has on others? It. Is. Addictive.

​Available now from Cult Beauty!

3. MAC Ruby Woo

There's red lipstick and then there's Ruby Woo. It's in a whole different league and for good reason. The unique matte formula makes for a colour rich lippy that boasts some serious staying power. And by staying power we mean, we're confident it would be there after a bottle of vino. Wear it on it's on for a fresh minimal look or pair with some bold signature Taylor Swifty eyeliner flicks for a amped up option. If ever you need a dose of colour pop, Ruby Woo's your gal.

4. Bare Minerals Warmth All Over Face Colour

Just because it's snowing in April, doesn't mean summer is cancelled this year. Not if Bare Minerals has anything to do with it anyway! Their Warmth All Over Face Colour will ensure you're looking sun-kissed all year round, come rain or hail stones. Just dust the blendable formula all over your face and enjoy the radiant, healthy hue. Tanning just got a whole lot easier.

5. Benefit Brow Zings

Shape em, define em, fleek em! This handy on-the-go kit does errrything. From pigmented wax to set and shape your caterpillars, natural powder for shading and filling in any gaps and all your brush tools and mini tweezers, if your brows don't look banging after Benefit's got a hold of them then frankly there's no hope. Available in light, medium and dark this is as good a kit as any for brow beginners and pros alike.

6. Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator

More Anastasia (she's good at this). This time she's bringing the highlighter game to whole new shimmering heights. Ditch the grapes and the blueberries, this illuminator is the only trick you'll need to get that lit-from-within glow. Dewy, luminescent, rose-gold radiance... we could sit here and churn out adjective after glorious adjective about this little buddy because quite frankly we'd look peaky AF without it. So thanks for having our back Anastasia, we owe ya! Our personal fave shade? Riviera baby yeah.

7. Urban Decay Naked Palette

If you're not a #UDJunkie already then you will be after this. Most makeup sets feature those take em or leave em shades, the ones that stay perfectly in place because your brush just never fancies going there. BUT. Urban Decay's naked palette contains no duds We repeat, NO DUDS. Every shade delivers the fleek. Listen, if we could marry it, we would.

8. Beauty Blender

Who would have thought a pink sponge could change your life. The beauty blender, created by Rea Ann Silva, has fast become a staple for every makeup artist in the industry. Its unique egg shape allows flawless foundation coverage - from the sides of your nose, right up to the corners of your eyes. It does exactly what it says on the box. Blends, blends, blends. Frankly, we don't know how we ever coped without one. They've even got a teeny tiny one just for your concealer now. What a time to be alive!

9. Marc Jacobs Cover stick

Suffer from redness, hyperpigmentation, dark circles? Your makeup prayers have officially been answered. MJ is our god. Balance out your complexion and even out your skin tone with his mighty cover sticks, AKA the best thing since sliced bread. Literally. It comes in 3 different shades to target different skin tone dilemmas. Bright Now to illuminate dullness (we need this), Covert Affairs to neutralise redness (uh huh, this too) and Getting Warmer for those pesky dark circles (sign.us.up). Plus, the marble effect they got going on, it's like, really pretty. You won't be able to get these beautiful blurring, light-reflecting pigments on your face fast enough.

10. Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin

It's safe to say whatever Jo Malone cologne tickles your fragrance fancy, you'll be onto a winner 'cos they're THAT good. Some of the ingredients (Early Grey and Cucumber, say what?) might sound a little too outside the box for you, but as soon as you smell and spray, you'll never doubt Jo's out-the-box thinking again. Once you've got one, you'll want them all.

11. Rodial Dragon's Blood Eye Masks

Take that you puffy peepers. These beauties are perfect for whacking on your bags for 20 minutes whilst you sit and do your mani ahead of a night out. Hydrating ingredients combined with bio-cellulose technology (that's fancy pants for the most advanced tech in face masks, oh-er), makes for one hella treat for your sapped skin. Brb, we've got a hot date with a dragon.

12. Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer

​How did we ever cover hormonal beastly spots without this magic stuff? It's all in the name. Laura Mercier's secret camouflage two-shade concealer makes the reddest of zits practically undetectable. One shade matches up with your skin depth and colour and the other matches your skin's undertones, resulting in complete coverage. Dark circles, redness, breakouts - your skincare woes don't stand a chance.
