The All-Year Round Bestselling Rare Beauty Buys

Best Rare Beauty Products | Space NK
To say Selena Gomez was multi-talented would be an understatement. The 30-year-old actress, singer, producer, activist and entrepreneur has an extensive CV and excels at everything she puts her hand to – her song, Lose You To Love Me has over 1 billion listens on Spotify and is just one example of her success. Her makeup line, Rare Beauty is no less impressive.

“Rare Beauty is about celebrating your individuality,” Selena told us. “I wanted to create products that are lightweight, breathable and easy to use.” From the Rare Beauty foundation and concealer to the lipsticks and eye palette, if there was one word to sum up the range, we would choose lightweight. The formulas and shades have been expertly curated to work for all skin types and tones. And, you don’t have to be a pro-artist to apply Selena Gomez makeup, the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush is fool-proof to use.

With an army of Selenators (Selena Gomez fans) chomping at the bit, Selena Gomez makeup was always going to be a sell-out success, but there’s more to Rare Beauty than lip gloss and foundation. The Rare Impact Fund is at the heart of the brand and is dedicated to not just raising awareness for mental health illnesses but ensuring that people have access to the resources they need. Rare Beauty donates 1% of all sales to the Rare Impact Fund and partners with various corporate companies and initiatives to help make a real difference.

Why We Love Rare Beauty

We’re not going to beat around the bush, we’ve yet to try Rare Beauty product that we don’t like. The range has next-level textures, the pigments are strong, the packaging is chic and feels luxe. Perhaps what has stood out to us more than anything though, is that this feels like a really well thought out makeup range and the mental health message behind the brand feels genuine rather than token. With the Rare Impact Fund at the forefront and product names like With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm and Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush, this is a beauty brand with a heart.

Best Rare Beauty Products For 2024


Rare Beauty

Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, $23.00

Bestselling Liquid Blush
Ask a Selenator which product you should try first and we’re willing to bet that they’ll suggest this Rare Beauty blush. The Soft Pinch Liquid Blush isn’t a runny, gloopy mess of pink that leaves a sticky streak across your cheeks, it glides on and melts into your skin, leaving nothing but a hint of a flush. The beauty of this formula is that you can layer up the lightweight, gel-like texture for a stronger finish too.


Rare Beauty

Positive Light Liquid Luminizer, $31.00

The Multitasking Liquid Illuminator
If you are all about the glow, Rare Beauty's liquid highlighter is worth the investment. You can apply it directly onto the tops of your cheekbones, brow bones and the high points of your face where the light usually catches, or you can mix with your base for an all over glow. We love that it's a glitter-free shimmer, so the results are natural-looking. We recommend checking out the dinky and very convenient Rare Beauty Mini Positive Light Liquid Luminizer, $16.00 too.


Rare Beauty

Positive Light Tinted Moisturiser, $37.50

Best Tinted Moisturiser
If you're someone who prefers a light base with a natural-looking finish which conceals without masking skin, you need to check out the Rare Beauty tinted moisturiser. With the help of vitamin E, the lightweight formula helps to soothe and protect skin without clogging up pores. It's also available in 24 shades.


Rare Beauty

Perfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara, $14.50

Best Lengthening Mascara
The Perfect Strokes Universal Volumizing Mascara is an everyday essential for anyone who won’t leave the house without mascara. With a narrow brush that is ever-so-slightly curved, you’re able to reach each lash effortlessly without getting mascara around your eyes. It's no surprise it's one of our bestselling mascaras.


Rare Beauty

Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation, $37.50

The Lightweight Base
The Rare Beauty foundation is one of the most talked about products in the range and for good reason. Available 48 shades, this medium coverage foundation feels more like a serum. While the applicator brush allows you to dot the formula onto skin where needed, we found that blending in it with a makeup brush gave the best results. What we love most is that you can layer this foundation if you need more coverage in specific areas without it looking cakey or heavy.


Rare Beauty

Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil, $26.00

Bestselling Lip Oil
If you're looking for a long-lasting, glossy liquid lipstick, you should definitely seek out Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush. The hydrating formula is available in eight wearable shades and despite being a gloss, Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil has impressive staying power.


Rare Beauty

Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush, $27.50

Best Rare Beauty Cream Blush
There is a Rare Beauty blush for everyone. We’d describe the Stay Vulnerable Melting Blush as more of a cheek tint. Similar to the liquid blush, it offers a wash of natural-looking colour, but it has a creamier texture. Again, you can build this up for a bolder look, but we found it looked best as a sheerer flush – almost like a glow from within.


Rare Beauty

Soft Pinch Luminous Powder Blush, $26.00

Best Rare Beauty Powder Blush
Like we said, there really is a Rare Beauty blush for everyone, including those who prefer a powder texture. Just like the bestselling liquid blusher, this formula is highly pigmented and lasts all day. Where it differs from its liquid counterpart is the finish as the powder has more of a glow-giving finish. If you love the finish of both the liquid blush and luminiser, we highly recommend seeking out Rare Beauty's powder blush ASAP.


Rare Beauty

All of the Above Weightless Eyeshadow Stick, $22.00

Best Eyeshadow Stick
Selena Gomez may have created the best eyeshadow stick we've ever tried. The formula glides onto your eyelids and the colour pay off is not only instantly impressive but it lasts all day too. We love the delicately diffused shimmer and highly recommend adding this into your makeup stash pronto.


Rare Beauty

With Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm, $13.65

Best Tinted Lip Balm
The Gratitude Dewy Lip Balm is one of those products that you’ll use everyday without even realising. The formula is infused with a nourishing botanical blend that leaves lips feeling soft and smooth, while the eight shades are super flattering and wearable.


Rare Beauty

Warm Wishes Effortless Bronzer Stick, $19.95

Best Cream Bronzer
The balmy cream bronzer gives your skin a gorgeous, healthy looking finish. Think sun-kissed glow rather than sparkly shimmer. We recommend gliding it across your cheeks and nose where the sun would naturally hit your face for subtle finish.
