Considering that our top celebrities have their pick of the industry’s best products, it’s always interesting to know which cheap-n-cheerful classics they still like to stock up on.

Turns out, there’s quite a few!

Some of our favourite celebs (and their makeup artists!) love the very same products and brands as the rest of us, so we decided to put together a list of their pharmacy favourites!



Kim-KardashianKim Kardashian’s makeup routine often includes products such as L’Oréal Paris’ Voluminous Mascara and 24 HR Infallible Eye Shadows.

In fact, her makeup artist raves about the 24 HR Infallible Eye Shadows in particular and regularly uses these on Kimmy.

As L’Oreal ambassador, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini is one celeb who wears the brand daily. Her favourite item? L’Oreal Paris Super Liner. She once said of it, “I’ve got to the point now where I don’t feel myself without it.”

For Abbey Crouch and Claudine Keane, that product is Bio Oil. Abbey has raved about it in the past, even once tweeting, “Covered my face in Bio Oil last night, and my skin feels amazing this morning.”

Claudine meanwhile used it to keep her skin soft and free of stretch marks during her pregnancies.
