From instant hits to cult classics, the bestselling beauty and skincare products of the year

We're always on the hunt for the beauty buys that will revolutionise our skincare routines and take pride of place in our bathroom cabinets. 

Before buying anything new, we'll scour through more reviews than we can count on our fingers to come to a sound conclusion - to buy or not to buy? 

But one of the fastest ways of knowing if you have a winning purchase is if it's been bought by thousands of women before you.

As we approach the end of the year, we look at the skincare and make-up products that made headlines in 2014 and sold out within minutes, from YSL's revolutionary Fusion Ink Foundation to cult classics such as Nars' Orgasm Blush.
