Rewind to 2010 when we last Googled Sex And The City beauty tips and Carrie introduced kajal eyeliner to our makeup lexicon courtesy of SATC2. It was nothing short of a seminal moment for avid fans and a great way of bonding over a Cosmopolitan or three.
It's fair to say that 2020 hasn't got off to the best start. But then the entertainment gods twigged that us gals were binge watching Sex And The City re-runs in our ratty old sweatpants and a seed was planted. Yesterday, Sarah Jessica Parker confirmed that those four sassy Manhattenites are making a welcome return to our screens.
Cue we fell down a rabbit hole, bookmarking which SATC star's beauty looks we're most likely to channel. So whether you're a Carrie, Samantha, Miranda or Charlotte, these are the products we reckon they'll climax for in #SATCNextChapter.

Carrie: fun, feminine but edgy
Carrie's cheeks always have a coy pink flush, especially when she's around Mr Big. Nars Orgasm Blush is the perfect way to fake it until you make it.
Sales of kajal eyeliner skyrocketed after we spotted Carrie buying one in a Moroccan Souk in SATC2. Ringing her eyes in black liner always brings out the icy blue shade and being a fashion maven we reckon she'd be a fan of Victoria Beckham's beauty line.
No matter how thrilling her liaisons with Aidan, this mascara is always a product Carrie can rely on for getting her trademark long, full-bodied lashes.
Carrie loves cake - this lip balm smells like cake and we reckon she'd be a die-hard Glossier fan.
Carrie may have mocked boyfriend Berger for mentioning a scrunchie in his novel, but the 80s hair tie is back on trend and being made of silk, this one reduces tangles, kinks and frizz.
No doubt its apple martini accord, alongside creamy orchid and sensuous woods, would be Carrie's signature scent.
Charlotte: Pure Park Avenue meets prim and proper 50s glamour
Charlotte's makeup is pared back but strategic. Perfectly arched, on fleek brows are a perennial favourite.
Charlotte is like the poster girl for Bobbi Brown's safe-but-pretty makeup looks. Watch closely and you'll notice she only ever draws along the upper lash line (one of the make-up maestro's mantras) to really open up the eye.
Nothing looks more polished or elongates the nail than a nude nail color. These days think Charlotte would take her beauty inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge who famously wore this shade on her wedding day.
Coral is Charlotte's trademark lipstick shade and this one has the added benefit of lift-reflecting pigments to make your pout look fuller and waxes to prevent color bleeding outside your lip line.
A designer fragrance that smells fresh and floral is likely to appeal to Charlotte. Dior's Absolutely Blooming ticks all those boxes.
Miranda: lawyer, mom and all-round ball-breaker, it's all about no-frills beauty
Miranda's signature is her fiery red hair. With nourishing pomegranate extract and vitamin E, the red pigments in this shampoo prevent colour fade.
Miranda favours a smoky eye and this 12-shade palette houses everything she needs in one place - from warm browns to cooler tones - for makeup on the go.
Eagle-eyed viewers will have spotted Kiehl's Algae Masque on Miranda's bathroom shelf. This product may have been discontinued but we reckon time-short Miranda would love the Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask instead, which hydrates in 15 minutes flat.
Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in Attitude, $40, Nordstrom [£31, Selfridges]
Could there be more perfect shade name for Miranda? We think not - plus the rust colour packs a punch against her pale skin.
Miranda's love of coffee is legendary. This way you can get your caffeine hit with an all-natural, vegan coffee scrub to buff away dead skin cells and ramp up the circulation.
Samantha: sex kitten and not adverse to a few tweakments
This flirtatious, fruity floral scent with a heart of jasmine and rose was spotted on Samantha's vanity and it's just as addictive now as it was then.
Sorry couldn't not go there. That said, Samantha's flirty flutter is courtesy of a good mascara and they don't get much better than this jet-black formula with a latex-like finish to beef up spindly lashes. Disclaimer: we also think Samantha LOVES latex.
Samantha's skin always has a golden sheen that borders on looking oily. We think she'd prefer this lightweight primer with naturally exfoliating papaya enzymes and pearlescent particles to ramp up her glow.
Who can forget that episode of SATC and Samantha's infamous chemical peel experience? Nowadays her go-to would be a these cult 2-part peel pads: step one swipes on skin-buffing AHAs while the neutraliser takes down any unsociable redness.
