Each year, Temptalia recognizes and honors standout brands and their products based on all of the swatching, testing, and trialing we have done over the years.  We specifically recognize performance over the past year with our “Best of Year” categories, along with selecting the very best products, whether new or old, across product types.  This year’s Awards features 83 categories with 159 winners from 76 different brands.

From the best eyeshadow base to best mascara to best shampoo to best blush, these are our very favorites. These are our tried and true products; go-to, holy grail-status products. When you wonder, “Well, what would Temptalia recommend?” Look no further than this list!  Last year, half a million readers looked towards our Editor’s Choice Awards as a reference.

Top Winners:  Guerlain (9), Revlon (7), L’Oreal (6), Milani (6), NYX (6), MAC (5), Maybelline (5), Neutrogena (5), Illamasqua (4), Make Up For Ever (4), OCC (4), Olay (4)
