Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Thank You so much Christine for all of your hard work! You always do an amazing job! I am sorry that some readers make this process difficult for you, but I know you won’t let anybody get you down!

There should be more variation. It’s not really a readers’s award if the same brand gets picked every year. Why vote then? Every year, a new brand should be represented. It’s also a good way for new brands to get exposure. This award should be re-titled to MAC Awards 2010.

Look at the results, MAC was voted for best lipstick?!!! WOW. There are so many other brands in terms of lipstick but I guess when you just want to pay for the cheapest lipstick, MAC is the brand to go to. Quality obviously is not considered. But then again, look at the readers – junior high and high school girls mainly. If this was geared towards college or professional working women, MAC would not be voted best beauty brand.

Readers were given the opportunity to nominate their favorites — all write-ins. The top 15 nominees for each category were presented on the poll. Readers voted – and this is how they voted. All products and brands compete for the best in category – not just what’s new, because then you really dilute what’s “best.”

Thankfully, our readers are from all walks of life and voted the way they wanted to – however that may be. If you don’t like the results, that’s fine, but why insult readers?

You obviously misunderstood the whole “READERS’ CHOICE” title. And I am not a junior high or high school girl. And I take offense to the assumption that mature, college, and professional women can’t enjoy MAC or other such brands.

This 39 year-old college educated, professional woman uses MAC mostly. I also use many Guerlain, Chanel and NARS products.
However, MAC is my number one brand. I see an error in that blanket assumption that “college or professional women” would not vote MAC.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
