Must-Have Beauty With Liberty’s Beauty Buyer |
Favourites 25


From under-the-radar brands to cult heroes, Liberty’s legendary beauty hall is the stuff of dreams, so who better to ask about all things hair, skincare and make-up than the store’s Head of Beauty Buying, Sarah Coonan? Here are the nine products she can’t be without...

Shampoo & Conditioner, both £26 | Mermaid Perfume

“This brand makes me smile so much and the Shampoo & Conditioner set is a dream. It smells like a Pina Colada and leaves your hair super soft.”

Super Seed Facial Oil, £70 | Votary

“This natural product contains rose geranium and apricot to gently cleanse the skin – it leaves the complexion clean, soft and moisturised and really does get rid of every last scrap of make-up.”

Hydrating Facial Mask, £38 | Skin Laundry

“We launched Skin Laundry in September last year and it has become a must-have. One of their laser and light facials is now part of my monthly routine and the hydrating sheet mask is essential post-facial or after a long flight.”

Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil, £45 | Aromatherapy Associates

“The late Geraldine Howard was a genius and a very dear friend of Liberty’s. This product is one of the all-time industry favourites and I think it will be for years to come. If you suffer from stress or find it hard to relax, this really works.”

Cold & Flu Soak Herbal Formula, £22 | C.O. Bigelow

“If you don’t have time to get ill, this is a hero product to keep in your bathroom cabinet. C.O. Bigelow is the oldest pharmacy in New York and this is one of their original formulations. A cap-full in the bath when you have a cold works wonders to relieve symptoms.”

Future Skin Foundation, £63 | Chantecaille

“I’ve tried many foundations over the years but this is the one I always come back to. The gel texture is ideal if you want coverage but don’t want to look like you’re wearing make-up. And it’s packed with great ingredients like arnica to treat redness and excess oil.”

Debaser Eau de Parfum, £200 | D.S. & Durga

“This is my go-to fragrance. It’s casual but totally unmistakeable – I’ve had more compliments when wearing this than any other fragrance. You can only get it at Liberty, which makes it even more special!”

Nail Polish In Audacity, £15 | Jin Soon

“Jin Soon Nail Polish is the best there is. The shade range is amazing and the formula is glossy and hard-wearing. Audacity and Pop Orange are my favourites.”

Santal 26 Candle, £51 | Le Labo

“I’m a massive candle fan and this is one of my favourites – the fragrance fills a room with a fresh, breezy, seaside scent and it lasts for ages. You can re-use the pot afterwards – mine is home to a little succulent on my mantel piece.”
