You know those beauty products that were passed down generations, the ones that you know work because they’ve stood the test of time? Well, it’s a shame we don’t tend to use those anymore. If you ask your grandmother or elderly relative what beauty products she swears by, we’re sure they’d be a lot different from the ones you use. But it’s always nice to share products with the people you love.

The beauty industry has changed a lot, but these twenty products seriously pack a punch, you might even want to share these with your grandmother!

1

La Mer Creme De La Mer

This cream hits the top of every list. It’s a legendary cream that every woman needs to try at least once! It’s a real investment that penetrates your skin and replenishes lost moisture. Buy it here.

 

2

Nars Blush in Orgasm

This cheekily named blush is a best-seller for a reason. The perfect color for any skin tone, it’s pink without being too overwhelming and highly pigmented, so contains just enough shimmer to really lift your complexion. Buy it here.

 

3

YSL Touche Éclat

The world’s most powerful concealer. This was a sell-out when it was first launched, I love it because it’s easy to blend, light enough to cover the darkest of circles and subtly highlighting. Buy it here.

 

4

Givenchy Prisme Libre

Luxury comes in this little pot. You need to try this! These beautiful loose powders come in four complementing colors that when mixed together increase the glow on your skin while buffing over imperfections and improving radiance and overall complexion. Buy it here.

 

5

MAC Red Lipstick

 

The perfect red might just come from MAC. If you’re still looking, try this perfectly pigmented rouge color from MAC. There’s a reason it’s so highly rated, (over 1,000 reviews!) it’s because MAC really knows how to create the perfect lipstick! Buy it here.

Perfect skin is possible, this weekly serum will seriously renew and rejuvenate your skin. It’s light, smells amazing, and is perfect for those luxurious days in your silk pajamas! Buy it here.

Mario Badescu Rose Water

 

This super affordable hydrating spray looks way more expensive than it is and actually packs a punch. It smells amazing, hydrates and protects your skin. I use it every day at the office and seriously love it. Buy it here.

    I’m surprised with never hearing of some of the products here! My goal in life is to be able to buy la mer products without stressing about the price tag. It sounds amazing, but I haven’t had the heart to buy it yet because I know that once I start, I’ll never be able to not buy it and switch to something cheaper!

    These sound like great products! I have been wanting to try the NARS blush. But I could never use the sleep mask, I can’t cope with having something covering my eyes 😱 But it is pretty.
