29 High Street Beauty Products Actually Used By Experts

Designed by Anna Jay.
When experts recommend products they love, it's never long before they fly off the shelves. Who doesn’t want skin as bouncy as a dermatologist, hair as full as a session stylist and nails worthy of thousands of Instagram likes?
Many of these beauty buys tend to push our budgets to the limit, with expert-approved skincare staples, containing things like acids and retinol, sometimes costing hundreds, and makeup entering a whole new category of luxury. Pearl-infused highlighter, anyone?
That’s why, when an expert lifts the lid on a brilliant beauty product that won’t leave you unable to pay your rent this month, you listen – and stockpile it. Ahead, find 29 high-street products, from makeup and skincare to hair and body, that the very best in the beauty business actually buy for themselves.
