10 Products Every 00s Beauty Junkie Owned!

Were you a 00s Beauty Junkie? It was an exciting time for beauty – new products were launching left, right and centre and innovations in cosmetics seemed to know no bounds. Some of these items are now sadly discontinued, but others are still total beauty staples!

 1. ghd

Coveted by teenage girls (and boys!) and beauty junkies alike, ghd’s were the ultimate hair styling must-have. They still remain hugely popular, though technology has come a long way in recent years and more affordable brands are starting to muscle in on the market.


2. Lancôme Juicy Tubes Lipgloss

 One of the most-duped products of the noughties, the Lancôme Juicy Tubes were a huge hit. The array of fruity colours were a celebrity staple, with stars like Drew Barrymore and Kate Hudson named as big fans.


3. St Tropez

No doubt spurred on by the WAGs trend of the 2000s, St Tropez was the ‘it’ tanning product for a few years. It would be interesting to know how many bedsheets and towels were stained, ruined and eventually thrown out during this beauty phase?



4. bareMinerals Get Started Kit

The mineral make up craze was huge in the noughties, and many still stick with the essentials from their bareMinerals Get Started Kit today. Though the brand have recently announced they’re launching a liquid foundation, their original products will likely be favourites for years to come.


5. Shu Uemura Mascara Basic

This now-discontinued beauty staple won numerous awards in the noughties, prompting cries of disappointment when it was shelved in favour of the brand’s Ultimate Natural Mascara. It was frequently described as a Holy Grail product, but its days were numbered.


6. Kenzo Flower Perfume

 Launched in 2000, this was a defining fragrance of the noughties. It was a top gift pick for a good couple of years, and its delicate poppy-embellished bottle graced the dressing tables of beauty junkies everywhere.


 7. Benefit Bad Gal Eyeliner

 Benefit became huge in the UK in the later 2000s, and their signature eyeliner was not one to be missed. The Bad Gal range is still very popular, and the thick, chunky eyeliner crayon performs just as well today as when it was launched.


 8. Hard Candy Nail Polish

At first glance, Hard Candy nail polishes looked a little cheap – their tiny size and the fake plastic ring around the neck did them no favours. However, they were wonderful polishes that stayed perfect for days at a time. They are still around, but fans note that the new formula isn’t a patch on the original.



9. Nars Orgasm Blush

 Arguably catapulted to super-fame as a favourite of the late-2000s YouTube beauty gurus, Nars’ cheekily-named Orgasm blush remains a beauty essential. Its versatile shade made it one of the big sellers of the noughties.


10. MAC Snob Lipstick

Finally, one of MAC’s best-selling lipsticks of the noughties (and all time!) is Snob. Again, it was one of the most raved-about products amongst beauty bloggers, and the endless swatches contributed to Snob’s success in the 2000s.

    oh my! 8 out of 10! I remember those GHDs! i had finally purchased the zebra patterned straighteners.. well, begged my mum was more like it.. i think i was in high school so straighteners were an essential “IF YOU HAD A GHD, or a mini portable straightener, YOU WERE AN ‘IT’ GIRL” – (currently collecting dust in my shoe box)..

    i had the BAD GAL mascara instead of the pencil… does that count?

    I am in love with this post, i just had a trip down beauty memory lane. thank you!
