The 7 Newbies On The Cult Beauty Scene You Need To Try Before They Blow Up

I’m still obsessed with Marie Kondo’s tidying craze. Her book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing continues to sit front and center on my bedside table, a reminder that there is still so much that I need to get rid of.

If you have not read her book, you must. It’s a great read that proposes physical and emotional clutter might be more connected than we think. Kondo also takes readers through her revolutionary method of simplifying, organizing and storing in a way that makes it seem actually possible. You are instructed to hold every single item and ask yourself, “Does this bring me joy?” Well about 80% of the items in my bathroom did not in fact bring me joy. After dedicating a Saturday to this major purge, I am blessed with something that is very rare here in New York – space.

Finally, I can make room for the products that really matter, like the new cult beauty buys editors are buzzing about. These are the products that you’d recommend to your best friend,  your neighbor and maybe even your boss. Curious as to what cult products I’ve got stocked in my newly organized bathroom? See my favorites below:

Kat Burki Vitamin C Nourishing Cleansing Balm – These days I am all about cleansing balms and oils. They are all the rage. They remove dirt and makeup better than all regular cleansers with their soft and silky texture. Kat’s balm is lighter than most of the others, making it great for spring. It’s also packed with Vitamin C to leave your skin glowing.

Ellis RRose Excellent Body Milk – I love this brand. The packaging is heavy so you know you’ve found something well-made. The line started with candles and just launched a body collection. RRose smells just like you’d think: floral, addicting, rich and expensive. There is nothing commercial about this line.

Tata Harper Purifying Mask – Finally Tata has created a followup to her massive global success, the Resurfacing Mask. This new “detox” product is like a juice cleanse for the skin. It gets pollutants out of the pores for real, which has been proven to help with the anti-aging process. The more crap in our skin from the air, the older, more tired we look, so this mask is a game-changer.

Ouai Hair Mask – Leave it to @Jenatkinhair, hair stylist to the stars, to create once of the chicest and most effective haircare lines to date. This single serving mask (great for travel!) leaves your strands super soft and in just one treatment. Jen suggests working the treatment through your stands before a sweat session (like the gym or spa) and letting the heat help penetrate the hair.

Byredo Rose of No Man’s Land – Byredo is the ultimate cult fragrance brand. I’m a fan of all of their scents, but this newbie is extra special. Turkish rose petals, pink pepper, raspberry blossom, papyrus and white amber come together to make the most intoxicating smell.  The bottle itself is a modernist work of art.

Guerlain Météorites Base Perfecting Pearls – Guerlain transformed their famous Météorites compact powder into a liquid form, resulting in this beautiful, skin-priming radiance booster. It blurs imperfections and gets the skin glowing fast. You can use it alone to easily achieve the no makeup look or under your makeup for a base.

Tatcha Kyoto Red Lipstick – This lipstick is like a piece of art. The exterior packing  is so precious that you almost hate to part with it. The tube is heavy and substantial, but it’s the angular shape of the bright red lipstick that sets this special little tube apart from the rest.
