With whispers around the internet of cult beauty brand The Ordinary possibly closing down, we’ve decided to round up a list of The Ordinary’s best products to nab before it leaves us forever.

Renowned for its accessibility and affordability, the relatively new brand has recently found itself in the media for all the wrong reasons, after the founder Brandon Truaxe had a MAJOR Instagram rant.

Alleged major criminal activity has resulted in reported shutdown for the company, with Truaxe claiming that The Ordinary will close effective immediately.

SOB. While waiting lists are a mile long, you can still battle until the end and make sure you have all of these gems…

The Ordinary Serum Foundation with SPF 15 by The Ordinary Colours 30ml (Various Shades)

Their famous lightweight foundation sold out within seconds of being launched, and the waiting list is still years long. The Ordinary’s Serum Foundation is considered one of the best lightweight face bases on the market, it’s definitely the one to watch before the stores say goodbye to us.

Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5: Your go-to for dry skin

Their products mainly focus on only one or two ingredients, so you know they haven’t put any unwanted chemicals in there, and each element is sustainably sourced.

The Ordinary "Buffet" + Copper Peptides: for stressed out skin

This one is your absolute winner if you are plagued with blemishes, and is totally cruelty free just like all of their other products.

The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion: Pigmentation or ageing concerns

This one gained recognition for being a staple of Kim Kardashian’s personal skin-care routine, needless to say it flew out of the stores after this came to light

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%: The ideal brightening formula

Uses anti-inflammatory properties to improve an uneven skin tone. Genius.

The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer

The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane: Perfect for damaged skin

Squalane is a botanical lipid which is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated through the prevention of water loss.

Salicylic Acid 2% Solution: seamless for acne

This one has so many benefits, both for pore-refinement and exfoliation. It’s use of Alpha Hydroxy Acids dig deep into the skin for a smooth clean.

Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%: wave pimples goodbye in the mirror

The Ordinary works to educate their customers on the presence of every ingredient involved in skincare by naming them after the core component, so the company completely evaporates any sense of transparency.

There are no tricks, false advertising or flowery language usages involved, just honest products, and cheap prices.

Founder Brandon Truaxe explains on the company’s website that “The Ordinary exists to communicate with integrity and bring to market effective, more familiar technologies at honourable prices."

What a shame this could all be taken away from us, in an industry where transparency and authenticity are difficult to find at the best of times.

Never fear ladies, you’ll get your hands on high quality and affordable skincare products if it’s the last thing we do.

Make-up might seem like a bit of fun, but our much-loved beauty products can tell an important story.

Through the creative hands of Paddy McGurgan and the hardworking team at Make-Up Pro Store, they have taken on mental health using make-up to start a campaign.

To mark Mental Health Awareness day yesterday, they picked up their brushes and carefully crafted a look to reflect the darkness mental health can bring.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by MAKE UP PRO STORE (@makeupprostore) on

Meshing the two together, the idea wanted to acknowledge that at one stage or another, we all go through challenges in our lives and it can hard to find the light.

The campaign didn't shy away from hard pressing issues like the reality of suicide rates, and they want their project to bring action in Ireland, Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Titled, 'You Are Worth More Than Your Darkness', their goal is to use makeup to communicate a message to politicians, heads of state and national decision makers that more needs to be done to curb the soaring rates of suicide.

The aim is to get more care and services available for those who truly need it the most. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by GLAMBYCAMX (@glambycamx) on

The Make-Up artists, as well as fans, are being encouraged to open up in a safe space using makeup to visually articulate the rough moments that they encounter in life.  

With this campaign, makeup becomes an important and positive tool for self-expression and conscious well-being.

It's about acceptance of one's self – wherever on the spectrum of darkness into light you may find yourself on a given day. 

Make-Up Pro has even set up a masterclass on October 25 in aid of Action Mental Health in Belfast.

All ticket sales go to the charity.

Any brides-to-be out there?

We're all a little bit guilty of using the aul filter a bit too much when we're uploading our snaps to Instagram.

Magazine covers are photoshopped and social media is filled with images that have been tweaked and edited.

Unfortunately, we rarely see what people actually look like.

Thankfully, Urban Decay have taken to Instagram to show un-retouched skin, and it's actually very important. 

The brand have chosen models with skin texture, freckles, and actual, visible pores. (Yes!)

The images are beautifully striking and show off Urban Decay's products in all of their glory – without any filters altering them. 

The response that the images have gotten on social media says it all – people want to see more of reality when it comes to beauty. 

People took to social media to express their delight, writing, ''finally the beautiful reality is revealed. No more plastic photoshop surgery. Way to go!'' and ''I love seeing real skin texture!''

Another person said, ''this is unedited picture is both a delight to look at and a confidence present for all the girls in the world.''

It's about time that major make-up brands are taking steps to highlight people who aren't naturally flawless (which is all of us btw).

Scars, freckles, lines, sun spots, line is what makes us all unique, so maybe it will make people think twice about popping a filter on every time. 

And hopefully other brands will follow Urban Decay's footsteps because we think it looks unreaaal!

Kylie Jenner, almost-billionaire businesswoman is reaching the grand old age of 21.

Yes, she's worth $900million at barely 21 and we were…well, the less said about us at 21, the better tbh. 

So when she's not posing for the cover of Forbes or GQ with her boyf Travis Scott, she's busying herself with her make-up collection.

So to mark her big 21st birthday, she's releasing a new Kylie kit to celebrate the occasion.

This isn't her first foray into bday/make-up collabs as she brought her first kit out in line with her 19th birthday.

She explained in her Instagram stories, "my birthday collections are super special to me because the first collection I ever did was for my 19th birthday. My birthdays are what set off [makeup] collections for me."

So take a look at what's inside Kylie's "most personal collection" yet, and get ready to be wowed because we love literally every f*ckign thing in it.

Oh Kylie, you are a genius. 

Neon Lippies

These six barnd new matte neon lipsticks come in various shades with the best names including,  'Glam,' 'Rumor,' 'Rager,' 'August,' 'Flirtini,' and 'Birthday Behaviour'.

Birthday Lip Trio

She's giving a nod here to her finally reaching the legal drinking age in the US and the trio includes: 'The After Party', 'Shots' and 'Victoria'.

'Get Lit' Pressed Highlighter

We're LOVING the name. We'd buy it for that alone. We dare you not to glow with her divine 'Champagne Showers' highlighter.

Liquid Shadows

'Eat Cake', 'Born to Sparkle', 'Fine Wine' will change your life, you've been warned. 

Pressed Powder Eye Palettes

This stunning eyeshadow palette called 'Sipping Pretty' fits right in with the drunk theme and we are big fans. 

Lip Kits

Kylies iconic lip kits are here and they're called – Twenty-One', 'Baddie', and 'Tipsy'.

Plus a mini lip kit collection with, 'Boss, 'Victoria', 'Rad', 'Say No More', 'Boy Bye', 'Queen'. Yaaass. 

We legit want it all. 

Catch it when it launches online on August 6th.

Okay, so we're a day late but why can't every day be National Lipstick Day?

From old Hollywood-glamour red pouts, to 1980's frosted pink pouts and Morticia Addams-style dark pouts, a good lipstick has the power to transform a mood/outfit/whole day.

So in honour of this timeless make-up staple, we did a whip around the office to see what lippies the team have stashed in their make up bags and why they wouldn't be seen without them…

Kat O'Connor, Staff Writer

My favourite is Mrs Mia Wallace by Urban Decay.

It's a gorgeous deep red and never fails to boost my confidence.

I'm not a huge makeup fan and prefer a natural look, but when I want to feel more glamorous I pop that on and I'm good to go. 

Mrs Mia Wallace,Urban Decay, €15.45

Mary Byrne, MagicMum Editor

My go-to is a Rimmel lippie in a pinky shade.

Unfortunately, I've used it so often that the colour code has worn off and I'm not 100% sure what it's called.

I'm not really a lipstick type of person tbh, and I opt for the same one whether I'm heading to a gig or a wedding – why fix what's not broken?!

I love this one is because it also works really well as a blusher – it's got a lovely creamy, matte texture and blends in really well. 

Jen McShane, MummyPages Editor

As I have so little time in the mornings, I want a lipstick that won't have vanished by the time I arrive at the office.

So I tend to favour a lip crayon – specifically Chanel's Le Rouge Crayon Del Couleur (€35).

It's really a two-in-one; a retractable twist that doubles as a liner and a lipstick.

The thin nib means you can outline your lips expertly and fill them in, on-the-go, in a hurry, wherever you are. It has a satin, yet ultra long-lasting, intense colour finish and despite the price tag, I have it in multiple shades – that's how good it is. 

Chanel's Le Rouge Crayon Del Couleur, €35

Shayna Sappington, Editorial Intern 

I love Mac's lipstick Twig.

It's a nice neutral colour you can wear everyday and looks different on everyone.

Their lipstick doesn't dry out my lips and always smells like vanilla. 

MAC, Twig. €20.00

Aoife Loughnane,  Editorial Intern

Like Mary, I'm not a huge lipstick person mainly because anytime I've attempted to wear it in the past, I look like I've devoured a pot of strawberry jam. 

However, I do love the Kate Moss Rimmel range – but I espesh love the Rimmel only 1 Matte Lipstick in nude. 

It's also fantastic as a blush on the cheekbones – just a little dab last hours and it actually looks good.

There’s a brand new addition coming to the Arnotts Beauty Hall and we are beyond excited about it. It’s safe to say this brand will be welcomed with open arms when it arrives at Arnotts on July 26, 2018.

It's no secret that over the past few years Penneys has made a name for itself as one of the big players in the budget beauty industry.

The pocket-friendly make-up range punches well above its weight when it comes to quality and with most products coming in at under €10, its easy to over indulge from time to time.

It's safe to say the whole world and their mother is obsessed with Kate Middleton.

From her wardrobe to her kids, we all love seeing what she's up to as well as what she wears on a daily basis.

The mum-of-two touched down in Poland this week, and to no surprise, her adoring fans met her the minute she stepped off the plane.

A number of young Polish students all gathered to see their "idol" visit their country, and even got a few words from Kate herself.

Speaking th the Mirror Online, Polish student Magda Mordaka said: "We are fans of the British monarchy. We have a Facebook group.

"We love [Kate Middleton's] style, and her contact with people. We were waiting for this visit from the beginning. What would she wear? Would she bring her children?

"We were telling her that she is beautiful and perfect," Magda said.

However, Kate had a quick comeback to that comment, and told Magda and her friends, "[That's] not true… it's just good make-up."

What an absolute queen. We don't think we could love K Middy any more than we do now.

OK, OK, we get it.

If we find the perfect lipstick or mascara, we keep it until the very last swipe.

Plus, if our lipstick is still half-full, we're not going to throw it out, are we?

Well, it turns out that we probably should, because expired make-up is pretty gross.

beauty, eye, fashion

One Redditor called Semicolon_Expected tested a few products that were lying around at the bottom of her make-up bag, knowing that they were definitely out-of-date.

And while the mascara she tested proved to be pretty rank, it was the lipstick that shocked us.

"So I swabbed my old Revlon Colorstay on a petri dish, the colour on one side and the clear on the other side and left it out for 3 days," she wrote on a beauty thread.

And after three days it was FULL of gross, bacterial colonies.

"I was surprised it grew so much since other cultures I swabbed had more spotty growth and not such big colonies in such a short time with no incubation." 

After looking at the results of the tests, Glamour spoke to microbiologist Jason Tetro, and he said "when you're constantly dipping into beauty products, you're introducing bacteria."

This can happen to expensive and budget beauty products, so that's another thing to think about when buying that Chanel lippy.

We're definitely going to keep track of when we bought our make-up from now on.

When it comes into the summer season, we feel like we need a complete overhaul of our make-up bags.

Our usual foundation and contour palette is now too heavy, our mascara has gone clumpy, and our fave lipsticks are now at the bottom of their barrels.

We want to look super fresh and dewy every dayum day, OK?

Thankfully, there is a new high summer makeup collection on the shelves to make us feel like we have an Instagram Story filter on us at all times.

When it comes to contouring, we want something handy to pop in our handbags, and wet n wild®'s new contour compact is exactly what the doctor ordered.

This summer is absolutely jam-packed with festivals, and we're predicting that a handy little compact like this will fit perfectly in our festival handbags. 

The complementary contouring powders define your bone structure and highlights your best features, without making you looked caked, so it's pretty much a win win. 

We all know that mascara is the key to a perfectly defined eye makeup look, but we're not down with breaking the bank when it comes to experimenting with eye products. 

Keeping with wet n wild®'s new high summer collection, we're pretty intrigued by their new Cat Eye mascara.

The fan brush is tapered to avoid clumps, but promises to add a dramatic edge to any look. The non-stick formula ensures that lashes stay separate, as well as helping to strengthen your lashes.

We know we've already mentioned festival makeup, but chipped nails at a three-day music haven with no access to your nail technician is a beauty blunder we'd rather avoid. 

The wet n wild® Wondergel nail polish promises to last up to two weeks, so it's perfect if you have a few events on at the same time over the summer months.

When it comes to shades, the selection doesn't disappoint either. (We have our colour on for the past week, and there's not a chip in sight, FYI.)

Some days, we're ALL for leaving our face bare and just heading out with a touch of lipstick on to add a little flush of colour to a pared-back look. 

Thankfully, another of wet n wild®'s high summer products are helping us maintain or summer makeup goals with their curated selection of Mega Last lip colours.

The semi-matte finish is super soft on the lips, and its new polymer complex means your smackers will stay super soft and hydrated.

The colours are gorgeous too, with everything from a light coral hue to deep purple. 

Whether you're hitting the town, or hitting the beach, or heading to any of the Irish festivals, affordable makeup is always a winner.

Stashing a few of these bits in your bag to top up your fresh summer look is a complete no-brainer.
