Time for Reinvention

Some beauty products are so prolific, they remain bestsellers years and years after they’re initially launched. And when a product is that good, brands are quick to capitalize on the success by creating fresh, reinvented versions of these unicorn-like favorites. Keep scrolling to see six iconic products that inspired new, modern versions you won’t be able to resist.

1Nars Orgasm

In 1999, legendary makeup artist François Nars launched his now iconic Orgasm blush, a slightly shimmery peachy pink hue that’s become almost a gateway drug for makeup junkies.

In subsequent years, the brand released an Orgasm lipstick and lip gloss. Now, 18 years later, Nars drops a liquid version of the shade, which creates a soft flush you can blend out with just your fingertips.

If there was one eye shadow every girl owned (or wanted to own) in the mid-2000s, it was Stila’s Kitten shade. This versatile shimmery nude pink became a staple from the brand, and since then, Stila has come out with a highlighter and gloss in the same hue.

Now, for an even more intense glittery eye, fans of Kitten can get a new liquid glitter Kitten shadow— one swipe across the lid, and you’re good to go.

Philosophy’s do-it-all Purity cleanser continues to win beauty award after beauty award long after its original 1996 launch — and for good reason. Its gentle, fragrance-free formula removes even the toughest makeup, grime and dirt from your face, without leaving your skin feeling dry and tight afterwards.

Now, Philosophy launched an exfoliating Purity clay mask, inspired by its bestselling face wash. The mask, which features white clay and salicylic acid, draws out impurities and reduces the look of pores, without feeling overly harsh.
