    This drugstore makeup junkie is a little bit happy that Maybelline earned the most votes! And Neutrogena too!

    Hi Christine,

    I just had to stop and leave a comment saying how much I appreciate all of the time and effort you take into all of your blog posts! I have been following your blog for a while now, and although I don’t leave many comments, I am always blown away by how thorough you are with everything. I really enjoy the Reader’s Choice and Editor’s Choice awards each year, and I’m so glad you even thought to provide a printable cheat sheet. Thank you so much – you are definitely my #1 source for getting information on all things beauty-related :)

    This is so informative! Although I tend to stick with only a few brands that I like the most. :)

    Love reading all your favs. Will defo check out ud liners as I love mac pearl glide and ud looks similar but with a massive colour range. I was wondering how you would rate nars blushers , both powder and cream, in comparison to the favourites you listed in the awards?
