The listing for Readers’ Best Bronzer seems to be off. 😉

I hella shocked to see Zoeva is in the brush listing of nominees, but I guess that it is because how how much they are taking advantage of social media channels that they have more online exposure. Still going to pimp my Royal & Langnickel brushes. lol

You might want to check the bronzer listing, you say that Hoola was a runner-up in the description, but it’s pictured and listed as the winner.

Ohh a lot of the ones I voted for got in second or third place! And I definitely didn’t expect Nars to win brand of the year! Always love looking through these results Christine, thanks for putting it all together!! The printable version is GREAT!

Thanks so much for compiling this list!! It must’ve taken so much work. A lot of great picks here, and I’ll be putting more items on my never-ending wish list to buy or try !

I think I put NARS down for 1/3 of my answers. I think the best products this year were the reinvent of Chanel eyeshadows, NARS lippies, and Hourglass Ambient Blush. Cheek Pop from Clinique and Revlon HD glosses were up there for me too!

It made a pretty impressive showing given that it launched last year, and it’s not cheap so it’s going to take longer for more to try it – it is a very pricey formula relative to other incumbents like UD (which most people can try via the 1238947234 palettes they release each year).

I love this! So many new things to check out! I always have a hard time finding staple products which I love, so I tend to settle. Nars laguna is probably one of the few products I have ever hit pan on and wondered why?? I definetely will be checking out Hoola! Will this list replace the one to the side of the page for future reference?

Great! And Thank-you for putting them together along with everything else you do! I am saving my $10 off at ulta bday coupon to try out Hoola,lol. I am not huge on bronzers. But, I must see what all the hoopla is!

Gee, how have I missed this fun feature in the past! And I also missed how to participate in it. I was pleased that a number of my faves either made it to the top or were runner’s up. I guess I am going to have to break down and buy a NARS Audacious lippie one of these days. Thanks for a very interesting read!

thats a bit depressing.. Chikuhodo didn’t win for best brushes 😐 and how did Anastasia Beverly Hills not win at anything? D:

Okay, so I’m confused. Is it 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards (as in the overall title), or 2014 (as shown in the title for each individual category)?

Thank you so much Christine for all the work you put into this list… It’s a great way to try new products and I’ll sure be looking into it for future recommendations of products. Sorry if my english is bad, I’m not a native speaker haha
